Right Wing Parliamentary Calls Dutch Moroccans “Guests”

Dutch Member of Parliament Hero Brinkman addressed a group of Dutch Moroccan youth as “guests” in the Netherlands during a discussion at an Amsterdam youth centre. AFP quotes the MP, representing right-wing Freedom Party, saying, “You are guests here. We have a Dutch culture and we want to keep it. We do not want all sorts of influences eating away at it and that is not going to happen either,” which provoked angry responses from the audience.
