Netherlands: demand to close down Muslim school

The Islamic College of Amsterdam (Islamitisch College Amsterdam), one of two Muslim high schools in the country, is again being threatened with closure after new criticism of corruption and improper management. The Islamic College is a high school

According to Minister of Education Van der Hoeven in the parliament yesterday, she had commissioned the Dutch Security service and the educational inspection to make a closer inspection of the school. She will do everything to stop subsidizing the school or to close it. Then, it would be possible to start off anew with a new management.

The school management is accused of making subsidy money "disappear". About 60,000 euro is missing and there is suspicion that the money had been channeled to extremist organizations outside the country.

The school is considered for years as "very weak". Lessons are given mostly by unqualified teachers. Despite intervention by the inspection services in 2004, there are been no improvement.

The issue is not only the quality of the school, but also the accountancy is problematic. Above all, teachers teach out of books in which there are spiteful texts about those who think and believe differently.

Parliament member Aptroot demanded immediate action from the minister. According to Aptroot the school is breaking the law and constitution since they "reject our democracy during class, discriminate and incite to anti-Semitism".

Minister Van der Hoeven replied that all possible illegal acts will be investigated and hoped to provide more information within a couple of weeks.

The school can be closed at the earliest in August so as not to leave the 800 students learning there out in the cold in the middle of the school year.

I can't believe this is can a school be teaching such things...isn't there a certain curriculum that all students must be taught? If this is truly happening..I am appauld...I hope the government shuts them down with everything they can...if they are not going to abide by the educational curriculum they should not be alowed to operate. Period!!!

Thank you for this information

Maine, USA great home for poor Islamists. The great uneducated leaders of Islam do a great job at leading the educated to believe their violent actions over the last 1700 years is justified. A history lesson for the Muslims world wide. Your "leaders" continue to claim that 1700 years of violence is justified. The use of the crusades is still in the minds of Muslims because mentally they stopped evolving 300 years ago. They were not capable of building there own economies when oil was found on their own lands. They were not capable of moving forward so the only thing to do is move to an oppressive life style that justify's violence, abuse and segregation. The more uneducated males there are, the more power that is generated. The moderate Muslims are mostly educated and more than 60% of educated Muslims are against the 13th century resolution management that the holy men (uneducated) non-evolved idiots of our current world. It is too bad that the educated youth that have not been over come with pride and arrogance won't speak up for civilization. I do strongly believe the West is not the way to go and that our world is in trouble with many areas but solving it by claiming Muslims will kill those who do not convert is EVIL and if they do it in the word of Mohammad, then the Mohammad they claim to serve is also as evil as the devil himself, that makes every ignorant leader in the Muslim world and throughout Islams control, the target of God, the real God who will return to fight your ignorance.

In order to keep a long story short, Maine, USA now invites Muslims from around the world to move here and receive government money to build a home here. This fearful, Evil move by the Maine government will make Maine one of the homes of the next crusades which is being created by the Islamic radicals and Muslim world in order to create fighting which will bring the world back into the 17th century where they stopped evolving so long ago. God created us to evolve and grow and instead of teaching peace and improving our world it will be in war because of your uneducated leaders for years to come. Thank you for being ignorant.
