We just received the following press release from Geert Wilders’ office:
Dutch Ambassador to Indonesia should resign
The Dutch ambassador to Indonesia, Nikolaos Van Dam, gave a speech (pdf, in English) defending Islam at a Koran school in Jakarta last week
Freedom Party chairman Geert Wilders: “While speaking to an audience at the Institute for Quranic Studies in Jakarta, Mr Van Dam acted as an advocate of Islam, rather than a representative of the Netherlands.
“In doing this, he has lost all credibility. Instead of trying to defend Islam Mr Van Dam should be defending the universal human rights and be committed to improve the situation of the Christian minority in Indonesia.”
Freedom Party MPs Geert Wilders and Barry Madlener demanded the resignation of Mr Van Dam in written questions to the Dutch Secretary of State.
