Petition forces parliamentary debate on "Martijn" in The Netherlands

The previously "tolerant" Dutch nation is quickly erasing any traces of their legendary open-mindedness. U.S.-style sting operations and unprovoked searches are the new face of Dutch justice.

The group "Vereniging Martijn", is being subjected to escalating levels of legal harassment and vigilante violence.

Yesterday, one of the group's spokespersons, Marthijn Uittenbogaard, had the front window of his house smashed by rocks and ammonia was poured through his mail slot.

Previously, he has been physically assaulted and receives almost daily threats. A motorcycle gang recently held a large protest in front of his house.

So far, the police show little interest in affording him the same protections that it provides to Geert Wilders or, previously, to Ayan Hirsi Ali, despite continuous threats to his life.
