Half of Dutch Muslims Think about Emigration

Due to the increasing popularity of Geert Wilders, 57% of Turkish and Moroccan Muslims feel less comfortable in the Netherlands than they did in the past. Seventy-five percent think that the native Dutch now judge them more negatively than before; 40% say that they are discriminated against more frequently; and 25% say that this happens regularly. These are the findings of a poll by Motivaction on behalf of the “Netwerk” TV program. However, 18% consider some of Wilders’ viewpoints to be positive and 4% think that, if he is in the government, he will be able to solve many problems. All in all, one-third of the Muslims do not see a future in the Netherlands.
