Lying US Diplomat Islamophobe!

US ambassador to the Netherlands Pete Hoekstra has apologised for anti-Muslim comments and says he "regrets" an interview with Dutch television in which he dismissed them as "fake news".

Mr Hoekstra has been widely derided online over his interview with Wouter Zwart of Dutch broadcaster NOS about comments he made in 2015 claiming there were "no-go zones" in Muslim communities in the Netherlands.

"The Islamic movement has now gotten to a point where they have put Europe into chaos," Mr Hoekstra said two years ago.

"Chaos in the Netherlands, there are cars being burnt, there are politicians that are being burnt. And yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands."

At about the time we emigrated Holland was bringing in Turks to replace the emigrants I suppose, so Holland has experienced Muslims for quite a while now, just as we have with the Afghans I suppose.
