Dutch natives fleeing Holland

This small nation is a magnet for immigrants, but statistics suggest there is a quickening flight of the white middle class. For example 110,235 people (mostly Dutch natives) left Holland last year, compared to 94,019 people (most of them Muslim and/or African) moving in. In the first half of this year 53,808 people moved out, compared to 40,842 moving in. To lose 100,000 natives a year is a lot for a country of 16 million, one million of whom already are Muslim immigrants. The emigrants are leaving for Western countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Scandinavia and the United States. They said they felt a general pessimism about their small and crowded country and about the social tensions that had grown along with the waves of newcomers. Many Dutch also seem bewildered that their country, run for decades on a cozy, political consensus, now seems so tense and prickly and bent on confrontation. "It is no longer Holland".

Needless to say, the Thought Police of political correctness ensure that these developments are rarely discussed in Dutch media or politics - gotta keep the masses in the dark. Someone described the slow and painful way people wake up to the problem of radical Islam as "education by murder". we'll find out in the rest of Europe in due course what it's like.

Hey, comeOn the Dutch are responsible for supplying all nuclear know-how to Pakistan, the technology which was disseminated like a hot-cake across the Muslim World by the ex-Dutch-Pakistani Engineer, Dr. Khan and Pakistani Military.

I have witnessed a good share of immigrants in my country, Italy. South american or portuguese speaking people have an easy way to learn italian, especially the spanish speaking for obvious reasons. The fact that we feel all latin helps.
Even the people coming from the eastern block easily learn italian. Under the communism, they might have had some problems but scholarization and the will/capacity to learn never left them.
Even chinese people are willing to learn italian, being intelligent people, mostly in the trade/exports/restaurants business, they need to communicate with local people.
All the above type of immigrants mentioned are also pleased with being in italy (because of the art, culture, history, landscape, food, people etc). They select italy and not other richer countries for those reasons.
The only people who have problems are muslims. They possess the lowest IQ levels together with the highest laziness.
Not only that, in the case of Dutch, not only it's a hard language but also not very much spoken outside the neterlands. I forsee a dramatic shift of muslims going to the UK, because english is easier to learn and can be useful for other countries.

I was always under the impression that the Dutch were racially tolerant. I'm truly surprised to find out differently. To think that in the past they were always so critical of white South Africans supposedly being so racist. Now the truth emerges!

LB - if you look at some of the later posts under the Holland tag you'll see why they're leaving. It's their racial tolerance that landed them in this mess.
