#2 "Two men kissing in a park and a topless woman bather are featured in a film that will be shown to would-be immigrants to the Netherlands. The reactions of applicants — including Muslims — will be examined to see whether they are able to accept the country’s liberal attitudes."

What do they do with prospective immigrants who are a bit *too* positive in their reactions.

Oh, that's right, they get a license to open a shop in Amsterdam....

#5 Those who pass the test get a pork roast dinner and a big glass of beer to wash it down with.

#8 "She accused the government of preaching tolerance about civil rights while targeting non-westerners with harsh and discriminatory immigration curbs."
Since when is lax and non-discriminatory immigration a basic human right? And I suppose she'd advocate for a Muslim squatter to move into Crown Princess Maxima's quarters too.

Most who have left Rhodesia and SA have relocated to the US, OZ, or NZ. Holland is lost.

#11 “There was another question about which former Dutch colony a particular spice came from,” said Nieuwboer. “Most Dutch people don’t know these things.”

Guess what, sunshine? Try for US Citizenship, and you'll have to learn a bunch of stuff Americans either didn't learn (because our school system sucks), or have forgotten. Life's tough all over.

Besides, I don't see where they are requiring Mahmood to be open in public with Abdul. All they are requiring is that a newcomer learns the proper way to behave according to Dutch mores when confronted with behavior they may not see at home. And that they be able to speak Dutch.

Yup, I see how that discriminates against "non-Westerners" in favor of, say, Argentines. Really. You bet.

#12 Please don't kiss me Peter, you have the smell of HIV on your breath.

Now that's a load of untrue and offensive bullshit.

Dirk Nieuwboer, a Dutch journalist based in Istanbul, said the multiple-choice cultural test included a question about how to behave in a cafe if two men at the next table started kissing.

While he's right on the "spice"/colony question, at last check Muslims didn't harass people who got it wrong... in contrast... *points to the above, then see below*

“We have lots of homo-discrimination, especially by Muslim youngsters who harass gay men and women on the streets. It is an issue here.”

Socialist (speaker) or not, packs of extremist young'uns running around harassing citizens in broad daylight = BAD.
