Parliament Wants No Additional Imams from Morocco

The Dutch Parliament has rejected an offer from Morocco to send seven imams to the Netherlands during the Ramadan period. Many members of Parliament criticized Morocco’s interference in the Netherlands. Christian Democrat Madeleine van Toorenburg said that it would be very difficult to control what they preach since they do not speak Dutch. She is also critical of statements by the Moroccan government that the Dutch Moroccan community is the 17th province of Morocco.
