Dutch Schools Ban Flag Fearing Muslim Reaction
|Most Dutch schools have banned displays of their own Netherlands flag by students, including on clothing or book bags. The ban is in response to Muslim immigrants who feel the flag is racist and fascist. Some school officials deny the ban is out of fear, saying they have merely acted with the security of the students in mind. Other school officials said it was to prevent problems between students, and to work on a good atmosphere and safe environment. One school says they need to do this because of the new social climate.|
Apparently many Dutch citizens, and members of the Netherlands parliament are a bit upset after the biggest Dutch newspaper the Telegraaf made the story public. How unreasonable of them not to understand “the new social climate” requires banning their national flag.
