Escalation between Sunnis and Shiites also threatens The Netherlands

June 29, 2014

“Of all the groups in the world that are known for their lies, they are stabbing head and shoulders above the rest. Lying is in their nature. This
people want to destroy Islam.” This is a quote from one of the many Salafi sermons in Dutch mosques circulating on the Internet. The “they” in these quotations refer to Shiites, alleged enemies of the Sunnis who are worse, according to other quotes, in the hierarchy, than “Zionists.” One Salafi Facebook page reads: “Shi’ite Islam is pure and total terror.”

Shia organizations held a demonstration last Sunday against terrorism in Iraq before and invited everyone, including Sunnis.

Jihadist Dutch elements were arrested for intervening with a counter-demonstration.
