Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb again repeated his call for religious extremists in the Netherlands to "fuck off," while speaking at a service in a mosque. The mayor visited the Essalam Mosque Saturday night and made his remarks in front of 250 people gathered there.
"Really, then fuck off; I've said it several times," Mayor Aboutaleb repeated. "That is maybe something not nice to hear, but there must also be a line drawn. I am a mayor who wants to connect, but also I want to set limits," he told the crowd.
"If you want to rise above the masses by grabbing a Kalashnikov, then you must leave. I see no legal ground to stop [radical jihadists] to stop them, so why should we do that?"
