Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Netherlands does not seem like the best place for her, to be honest...
The direct cause for the ending of my membership in parliament is that on April 27 of this year, a Dutch court ruled that I must once again leave my home, because my neighbors filed a complaint that they could not feel safe living next to me. The Dutch government will appeal this verdict and I grateful for that, because how on earth will other people whose lives are threatened manage to find a place to stay if this verdict is allowed to rest?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman

Shades of Salman Rushdie's story. He left Britain in large part because of people (not jst right-wing) who'd opine that he should shut up and be grateful for the  millions spent on his personal defence rather than cause more trouble with stating his opinions or walking around town; and also types who opined that Muslim anger is rightful in his case.
