Colonialism could foster on racist undertones and has infested culture across Europe. Both England and The Netherlands are rooted on white supremacy and with the rise of rightwing populism in politics has raised its ugly head.
The decades of fighting America's wars in the Middle East -- Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria -- led to the refugee crisis from 2015 forward. Have written about this development relentlessly. The Dutch religion based on Protestant Reformed Church, slavery, Afrikaners and South Africa apartheid, Indonesia and Dutch Moluccans.
Refugee crisis led to pressure on immigration, the Brexit referendum and in the end xenophobia and Islamophobia thanks the sponsors of the Zionist extremism in Israel and the United States. Israel as a Jewish state is falling apart due to extremism, fascism, settler intrusion on Palestinian land and rebirth of Kahane terrorism.
All the warning signs were present for at least 33 years ...

Gary Lineker says 'no' in response to question on whether he regrets posting tweet comparing language of UK policy to that used by Nazi Germany
BBC Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker told reporters Thursday that he does not regret posting a tweet comparing the language of the UK's latest migrant policy to that used by Nazi Germany.
Speaking to reporters outside his home in London, Lineker defended his comments on the controversial illegal migration bill.
Asked whether he regretted his tweet, Lineker who is also a former England striker, responded "no" and when asked if he stood by it replied: "Of course."
In response to a video message by Interior Minister Suella Braverman about stopping migrant boats, he tweeted: "Good heavens, this is beyond awful."
Lineker also said there is no huge influx and the UK takes far fewer refugees than other major European countries.
"This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the 30s, and I'm out of order?" he wrote on Twitter.
The 62-year-old Lineker has faced criticism over his tweet and the language he used as it also sparked a dispute over the BBC's "impartiality rules."
Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said it was "important for the BBC to retain impartiality if it is to retain the trust of the public, who pay the license fee."

Keep politics out of sport. Ha, yeah. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, in what we must, if only out of a sense of convention, call the Real World, we have this: the strange and sinister developments of Friday evening in what will now come to be known as the Lineker affair.
The suspension of Gary Lineker from BBC presenting duties - not Newsnight or Question Time, but the bloodless warm bath of Match of the Day - over a tweet sent on Wednesday afternoon criticising government policy on migrants is, frankly, a jaw-dropping act of political intervention.
Of course both the BBC and the government will deny that this is an act of direct intervention. The only real response to that is: do you believe them?
