Only 19% of Dutch believe they are benefiting from Muslim immigration.
The Dutch Party for Freedom, led by maverick Geert Wilders, paid for the most trusted polling firm in the Netherlands to gauge public opinion on Muslim immigration.
The Netherlands is over 5% Muslim, and Muslim immigrants have already set up exclusionary zones patrolled by gangs who enforce Sharia law.
When asked if the Netherlands “had enough Muslims,” a large majority of all seven Dutch political parties say yes. A majority of all income levels said yes. A majority of all education levels said yes.
A majority of the supporters of all six Dutch political parties also said they believed in a constitutional ban of sharia law.
55% of all Dutch favor a total ban on Muslim immigration.
63% of all Dutch are opposed to the building of new Mosques.
72% said they believe there is a correlation between Islam and the recent terrorist acts in Boston, London, and Paris.
When asked if the Netherlands has been “made better/enriched” by Muslims immigrants, 64% said no, and 17% said unsure. Only 19% said yes.
Here’s a link to the poll results in rough English via Google Translate.
The above is a graphic of the Muslim population of the Netherlands. The graphic is from 2004, so the Muslim population will have grown larger since then. Note that while the total Muslim population in the Netherlands is only about 5%, Muslims are concentrated in the coastal urban areas of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and the Hague. For example, 14% of Amsterdam is Muslim, 13% of Rotterdam is Muslim, the mayor of Rotterdam is a Moroccan Muslim, and a third of people in the Hague are of non-Western origin. These demographics are compounded by the fact that the Netherlands is a small country with a large population and thus has a very high population density, leaving very little room for white flight to escape the enriching diversity.
Unfortunately, this is unlikely to change any time soon. In modern Dutch politics, it’s not right-wing versus left-wing; it’s left-wing versus really left-wing. Looking through the list of parties, the only truly right-wing party to win seats in the last general election got a whopping 2.1% of the vote and is more concerned with social issues than immigration. The Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV) who commissioned this poll is a case in point that the mainstream media, regardless of any of a political party’s other positions, will brand any anti-immigration party as “far-right.” By any objective standard, the PVV is a solidly left-wing party. In fact, Islam’s stances against feminism and homosexuality are two of the main points the PVV uses to attack Islamization. But despite its left-wing credentials, the PVV still dropped from 15% to 10% of the vote in the 2012 Dutch General Elections. While these results may stem more from the election being primarily about the EU as well as the media successfully painting Geert Wilders as a crazy extremist, it does still not bode well for the level of importance Dutch voters place on immigration. The Netherlands desperately needs a truly nationalist political party; otherwise they may end up merely being an object lesson to the rest of Europe on the destruction which mass third-world immigration and liberalism bring.
