Killer Van Gogh is Hero
Teachers of the Mozaiek elementary school are very concerned about the radicalization of their pupils. Mohammed B. [Bouyeri :The killer of Van Gogh] is revered as a hero, when Hirsi Ali is shown on school TV they mimic ‘shooting’ movements. When they visited the Anne Frank House pupils said “they deserved it” and “They should have killed more Jews”.
The radical behavior is not new. The teachers of the Christian elementary school say they ask for years now attention to this problem. Teacher Marlene van den Berg: “After the September 11 attacks, they made a St. Nicolas [children feast where presents are packet in self made creative wrappings] surprise of the WTC towers, complete with flames and falling people. We started the dialog: What do you mean, why do you do this? Then you get a ruthless answer: They deserved it, they had to do it a long time ago”,
The radicalism dates according to Berg from before September 11. “It varies each year. Ten years ago we hearth in group 7 and 8 [age around 10-11 years old] pupil’s say: “We Moroccans take over the Netherlands”. Now we see pupil’s in-group 3 [age around 5 years old] - who can barely write – already write phonetically ‘Fuck you Netherlands’ on small papers. Pupils in-group 8 have a photo of Mohammed B. [Killer of Theo van Gogh] in their schoolbag, they seem him as their hero.
The worries of the teachers are also shared by education alderman Lieke Thesingh of the city department Oud-Zuid [old-south]. She warned burgomaster Cohen about it. “He turned pale” says Thesingh on a special neighborhood evening in the Diamand neighborhood [where Moroccans youth drove a Dutch family out of their home, but Cohen denied that their was a problem, to suggest later that the Dutch family was racist] where the teachers of the Mozaiek school told their story again.
The municipality administration knows about the problems, confirm sources on city hall. The problems are also on two other schools, which are not named. Recently safety civil servants of burgomaster Cohen have investigated the reports of the teachers. That showed who influenced the youth. They call the signs alarming.
Strangely enough socialist (PvdA) Burgomaster Cohen does not want to take action. He says he is going to start an investigation at some schools in Amsterdam to research if there realy is a problem.
Today it was on the commercial RTL news. If you like you can see the school and children in question: here (click on on "rumoer" to see the dutch language report).
When the reporter asks the children if it is true what the newspaper wrote: they deny, “they cannot proof it”, a girl say. An other says it is not true that the youngsters [who supposable wrote fuck you Netherlands] can not read Dutch, he grab’s a small boy and says: “look he can read Dutch”. The reporter says the school is now panicking. The teachers, who they ask, don't want to comment on the affair. They direct the reporter to the district council. There they say they are alarmed and that it is not tolerable behavior. A joke is ok, but this is too often and too wide spread. But he does not say, what he is going to do about it.
Can you start to immagine why Theo van Gogh despised burgomaster Cohen?
