Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb appeared on television programme Nieuwsuur Wednesday night, and lashed out at Muslims living in this society despite their hatred of it. “It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom,” he said. “But if you do not like freedom, in Heaven’s name pack your bag and leave.”
“There may be a place in the world where you can be yourself,” he continued. “Be honest with yourself and do not go and kill innocent journalists,” Aboutaleb, a Muslim himself, said.
“And if you do not like it here because humorists you do not like make a newspaper, may I then say you can fuck off.”
“This is stupid, this so incomprehensible,” he also said. “Vanish from the Netherlands if you cannot find your place here.”
Mayor Aboutaleb also expressed remorse at how Muslims will now be looked at in the Netherlands. “All those well-meaning Muslims here will now be stared at.”
Bravo Mayor Aboutaleb! Let me add to your statement: “All those, religious or not, who don’t like free speech can fuck off!”
