PVV leader Geert Wilders is pleased with Minister Bert Koenders' (Foreign Affairs) decision to withdraw the visas of three controversial Muslim preachers, who were scheduled to speak at a benefit in Rijswijk on March 8th. He does, however call this whole issue "incredible amateurism" of the Cabinet, the AD reports.
According to Wilders, the withdrawal was done under heavy pressure from the Tweede Kamer, and the visas should never have been granted in the first place.
"The Netherlands is run by amateurs", Wilders said in the newspaper. "In Belgium jihadists are given long prison sentences. In the Netherlands they are acquitted, mega mosques are build haphazardly and visas are issued to hate imams, and then later happily revoked. The bungling of amateurs of this Cabinet."
