Moroccan and Turkish Dutchmen More Often Victims of Discrimination and Violence

Discrimination and violence against Moroccan and Turkish Dutchmen has increased in 2007. Public opinion on Muslims has become more negative. This is reported in the 8th annual Monitor on Racism and Extremism of Leiden University and the Anne Frank Foundation. The organizers blame the many anti-Muslim statements by the Freedom Party and the major attention given them for at least some of the increased Islamophobia. They also blame the Justice Department for not submitting complaints against some members of the party.
