Government refuses to prohibit Salafist organizations

The cabinet has decided not to prohibit Salafist organizations.  In addition, no new laws will be legislated against intolerance and the preaching of hatred within Salafist currents in the Netherlands.  The ministers oppose such laws, as individual freedom is entrenched in the Dutch state laws.  The cabinet claims that intervention in specific cases may already be carried out through existing laws.  Such cases include preparation or facilitation of terrorist activities including incitement, recruitment, training and conspiracies, specifically incitement to hatred, violence and other forms of discrimination.
