Ayaan Hirsi Ali PNG'd by Dutch Government

Anyone familiar with the history of occupied Europe during World War II knows thatAnne Frank was hardly the only Jew turned in by Dutch snitches and sent to an early doom in the death camps. Indeed, a recent Financial Times article [sorry, no link] outlined the deep difference between Denmark, which managed to protect or export to Sweden nearly all its Jews in hiding from Nazi extermination squads, and the Netherlands, which had the worst record, worse even than occupied France, in protecting Jews in hiding.

Anne Applebaum wrote the magisterial Pulitzer-winning study Gulag, a tome that should be made mandatory reading by every education system in the West.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is now safe stateside, in a country which does protect First Amendment rights of Free Speech much more than the perfidious Dutch apparently do. But the href="">path toward cowardly appeasement of violent Islamic reactionaries is not solely a Dutch phenomenon.

The craven soft Euro-sissies appear to have never met an Islamist before which they did not cringe.
