Remarks by Wim Kortenoeven, Dutch delegation to the OCSE conference in Dubrovnik, 9 October 2011 (meeting on security in the Mediterranean area).
Mister chairman, I am addressing this meeting on behalf of the Dutch Party for Freedom.

In early 1959, a small West German intelligence operation stumbled over a sensational find: U.S. collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood. According to the West German sources—two ex-Wehrmacht soldiers who were in Washington's pay but still felt loyalty to their old German bosses—Washington was supporting one of the Brotherhood's top men, the Geneva-based Said Ramadan, son-in-law of the movement's founder Hassan al-Banna, in the hope of using him in the global battle against communism. The U.S. double-agents wanted to know if the West Germans would also help support Ramadan.

Over the last few years we’ve posted a number of times about the accelerating emigration of Jews from Sweden. The exodus is most noticeable in the southern city of Malmö, which has the largest concentration of Muslims in Sweden. Violence and threats against Jews have become so common that more and more of them are leaving, particularly the young people.
"Islamo-realism” is what’s needed: Some highlights: "Christians and Muslims do not believe in the same God.” "I believe it’s important that we have a president who understands that Islam is not a religion of peace, but a religion of war and violence and death.”
Al Masry al Youm has some additional news from Cairo: 10:45 pm: An eye-witness reports that protesters attempting to move from Abdel Moneim Riad Square to Tahrir Square were charged by a police pick-up truck travelling at high speed. The pick-up truck emerged from behind military police, who were blocking the entrance to Tahrir. Small groups of protesters continue to attempt to re-group in the surrounding streets.
