Signs to Mecca? Has the Netherlands gone mad?, the website which reported Brahim Bourzik's idea to set up signs around Rotterdam showing the way to Mecca, were swamped with reader responses.

"I'll pull them one by one out of the ground" warns a reader. And: "Are we going to set up signs also to Rome?"

Moslim readers were also incensed at the idea: "A good Muslim really doesn't need such a sign" was a common criticism. Many Muslims felt insulted, "Maybe he feels that we Muslims are dumb"

Other readers suggested: "Buy yourself a compass".
