Minister of Defence: no place for Salafists in Dutch Army

Dutch Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis, has said that the Dutch army is no place for people with radical views.  This includes Salafists.  If a soldier becomes a Salafist during his army service, he is to be discharged from the army.  Her statement came following many parliamentary questions concerning the Dutch sergeant who had joined the Islamic State.  Hennis, however, opposed the PVV’s view which would prevent all Muslims from joining the Dutch army. She said, “Muslim soldiers are also willing to lay down their lives in extreme cases for the freedom of all Dutch citizens, including adherents of the PVV”.
