Near Dutch 'Sharia triangle,' a small Jewish enclave endures
by Cnaan Liphshiz
On a cold winter night in 2008, Wim Kortenoeven was startled by the crackling of a large fire raging near his home on the edge of this city's last remaining Jewish enclave.
Rushing from his apartment, Kortenoeven walked 70 yards and crossed the line separating his Jewish-owned housing project from the predominantly Muslim borough containing what Dutch media have taken to calling the "Sharia triangle" — Sharia referring to Islamic law.
On the seam line, he encountered dozens of Dutch Moroccans looking at several parked cars that vandals had set on fire.
