Melting Pot Beats Mosaic Again

Was there ever any doubt where multi-culti "separate but equal" politics would lead?

A large majority of Dutch people are afraid of Muslims, according to a poll taken after the murder of a Dutch filmmaker critical of Islam.

The poll, conducted by TNS NIPO in The Netherlands, as well as in Spain and Italy, since the November murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh by a suspected radical Islamist, showed only 19 percent of Dutch people do not see the presence of Muslims in the country as a threat.
It's gonna get worse before it gets better. We'll know we've turned a corner only when an "everyone is equal in the eyes of the govt and the law, no exceptions" philosophy has well and truly taken hold.

We're not even close at the moment, but change is coming. The only question is how much pain it will take to overcome our pride.

UPDATE: Hmmm. Since about 6% of the population is Muslim, and presumably don't see themselves as threats, that means that only 13% of the remaining population consists of non-Muslim Dutch who do not feel threatened.
