Follow-Up on Bouchra Ismaili

The following report was just sent in by our expatriate Dutch correspondent, H. Numan.

A few days a minor stir troubled the multicultural correctness of the Netherlands. Ms. Bouchra Ismaili replied as if stung by a wasp to perfectly reasonable questions from Mr. Jos Parbleu. I reported on this, and so did others. Here’s the latest:

Ms. Ismaili is now in serious political trouble. At first the faction chairman said this reply was merely stupid. However, he’d like to give Ms. Ismaili the benefit of doubt. As we all know, foxes may be able to loose their hair, but not their tricks. So right after being towed away from the cliffs, Ms. Ismaili reversed course, and went full steam ahead to crash on the rocks.

She posted the following remark on the Hizb ut-Tahrir website. On Sunday, after she was rebuked by here party for stupidity.


It’s high time to get rid of a culture which damages our Islam and for us to spread the true beauty of Islam. Only that way we can grow in our Islam. We should not waste energy in changing others but let us change ourselves.

Which culture is damaging Islam? The Greenland culture? Perhaps the culture of the Papuans? Or maybe the culture of the Dutch? Can a councilwoman representing a constituency say something like that? Right after being lightly slapped on the (covered) wrist?

Obviously not. Even some multicultural correctness goes to far, even for the supreme beings of multiculturalism. Ms. Ismaili has been asked, officially, by her entire PvdA faction to resign forthwith. Waiting for the political debate next Tuesday was a waste of time, according to her fellow faction members.

It all depends now on Ms. Ismaili, if she will gracefully resign. Which, in all likelihood will not happen. More than likely she will remain councilwoman, but operating now as an independent. (This is legal under Dutch law. A politician can be thrown out of the party, but unless criminal charges are filed, will keep his or her seat in the council or parliament. In fact, this happened to Wilders, and more recently Mrs. Verdonk.)

It seems to me Hizb ut-Tahrir will have their personal political representation in the city council of Charlois very soon. Since Ms. Ismaili can’t control her feelings, I assume she will do so dressed as offensively as possible. Exactly how is difficult to say, as a law is in progress to forbid wearing a burqa in political meetings and in schools. Nice for all those not-so-bright Dutchmen who voted her in.

This should surprise no one. After all, it's in accordance with any number of Qur'anic verses, e.g.:

9:123 -- O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you ...

48:29 -- Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves.

Etc., etc., ad nauseam.

Bouchra Ismaili could be praised for her honesty, for openly expressing widely held sentiments among Muslims in Europe. She sounds like a wolf in wolf's clothing.

Seriously, her comments are excellent election fodder. Just reprint her words verbatim on election fliers, reprint them on YouTube, and quote her words on television. Her comments are worth more than their weight in gold for those who oppose Muslim immigration into Europe.

Her party wants to throw her out for denying that she signed the petition, not for the actual signing. At first the local party chairman said it was part of the same outburst of anger and therefore ok, but now he's saying that whoever doesn't tell the truth, loses trust.

Bouchra Ismaili said it was a "mistake". something that came out of sudden anger. But it is not. She defended herself stating: "Hereby I distance myself from the email that I sent in answer to the repeated provocations. I feel sorry for the damage that I caused with this. The tone and content of my mail doesn't connect at all with the principles I advocate. Those are: freedom, equality and justice." Again. Taqiyya all over.

Ismaili's second hate speech followed her email. In that order. Actually she signed the Hizb ut Tahrir petition more than seven hours later and her brother/sister S. Ismaili signed immediataly after her stating: "Really very good that you {Hizb ut Tahrir] set this [the petition] up. May Allah reward your effords. Salaam aleikum.

This proves it is not a "mistake" out of some sudden anger. She had time enough to think about it, consult others, discuss it, read the Hizb ut Tahrir rubbish.

Therefore this is the exact way she sees things and she is not the only one. There are loads of Bouchra's hiding in Dutch politics until time comes.
