Heh: Gay Film To Be Used To Test Dutch (Islamic) Immigrants' Reactions

Makes sense:

Two men kissing in a park and a topless female bather are featured in a film that will be shown to would-be immigrants to The Netherlands.

The reactions of applicants will be examined to see whether they are able to accept the country's liberal attitudes.

From Wednesday, the DVD -- which also shows the often crime-ridden ghettos where poorer immigrants might end up living -- will form part of an entrance test, in Dutch, covering the language and culture of Holland.

Those sitting the test will be expected to know which country Crown Princess Maxima comes from (Argentina) and whether hitting women and female circumcision are permitted.

Well-- are they? The article doesn't say.

Muslim leaders in Holland say the film is offensive.

That's the point. It is kind of offensive to those with a strict religious code against homsexuality. The question is-- how offensive? "This is revolting" level offensive, or shooting AK-47's in the air level offensive?

"It really is a provocation aimed to limit immigration. It has nothing to do with the rights of homosexuals. Even Dutch people don't want to see that," said Abdou Menebhi, the Moroccan-born director of Emcemo, an organisation that helps immigrants to settle.

...

The new test -- the first of its kind in the world -- marks another step in the transformation of Holland from one of Europe's most liberal countries to the one cracking down hardest on immigration.

No country wants to be a net-importer of murderous insanity. Sorry. Produce less of that particular good and countries like Holland will allow more free trade.
