Dutch Muslims Encouraged to Vote on EU Constitution

Leading Muslim activists in The Netherlands have encouraged fellow Dutch Muslims to make their voices hard in the July vote on the European Constitution, falling short of sponsoring a specific position. "What is important is for Dutch Muslims to cast their ballot, rather than say "yes" or "no" to the European constitution," Dris Boujoufi, the deputy chairman of the council of Muslim representatives in the Netherlands, told IslamOnline.net. The Netherlands chapter of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe , for its part, is not only encouraging Dutch Muslims to vote but also to say "yes" to the European Constitution. "We go for the Muslim participation in the referendum and support for the constitution to overcome narrow-minded nationalism which negatively affects Muslims," Yahya Bouyafa, the chapter's chairman, told IOL.

You should visit this site. An Iranian who is standing up against Islam and warns everyone in Europe of its dangers. Finally, truth from the Middle East.

I've been to Faithfreedom.org a few or more times. It's really quite good.

I highly recommend it.

Very interesting. Anyone who has looked through Bat Ye'or's Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis should raise an eye-brow. Highly recommended reading.
