Amsterdam Neighborhood Ends Collaboration with Mosques

The neighborhood council of De Baarsjes in Amsterdam has discontinued its agreement with a number of mosques. The agreement of 2004, concluded after the murder of Theo van Gogh by radical Muslims, was meant to counteract extremism. The leaders of the mosques had promised to monitor radicalization. They were bound to inform the police of crimes in the area. The neighborhood council says the agreement has contributed little to the battle against extremism.
