Rotterdam Mayor: High Immigrant Criminality Affects Image of all Newcomers

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has said that the over representation of non-Western immigrant youngsters among criminals undermines the position of thousands of other immigrant youngsters who are striving for success in their future lives. He added that as long as there are people, wherever in the world, who misbehave and commit crimes in the name of Islam, the Muslims in Rotterdam will also suffer the consequences. He therefore called on Rotterdam Muslims to play an active role in the fight against radicalization.
