"The Netherlands has become completely "Islamized'. The Muslims have settled down here, and made the Netherlands their home. They are growing, at our expense", said PVV Parliamentarian Machiel de Graaf with a sneer during debate in the Tweede Kamer.
De Graaff seized the opportunity to air his, and his party's, view that the Netherlands will be better off without Islam, and without mosques in the country.
"The Muslims are not changing, not assimilating, and not integrating," he alleged. "They are building their country inside the Netherlands, at our cost, with all these mosques."
