Dutch Religious War II

Voices from the van Gogh's funeral service, from the NYT:

Jan Colijn, 46, a bookkeeper from the central Dutch town of Gorinchem, who was at the funeral, complained that the generous Dutch social welfare system had allowed Muslim immigrants to isolate themselves. Because of that trend, "there is a kind of Muslim fascism emerging here," he said.

Another man, who declined to give his name, was more succinct: "Now, it's war."

There are estimated 900,000 Muslims in Holland.
