Indeed the more benign reading of the above list from Bolkestein would be that it is a showcase of anti-Muslim hysteria in the media (instead of the intended illustration of self-doubting Westerners giving way Muslim cultural aggression). However, in the Dutch cases, he is not just channelling media spin, but adds his own misrepresentations and presents some arguments of the participants as if they were his own outsider observations: he gains control of the story long after it broke by suggesting a compelling pattern.
