Muslim groups criticize Wilders' 'Moroccan scum' comments
by Mike Corder
Muslim organizations in the Netherlands on Sunday criticized disparaging comments about Moroccans made by anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders, but say they are just the latest in a long string of insults.
Launching his campaign Saturday for the Netherlands' March 15 parliamentary election, Wilders criticized Moroccan youths for making the Netherlands unsafe, although he qualified the comments by saying they didn't apply to all Moroccans.
"If a Dutch person driving in a car drives five miles too fast he will be fined within a minute whereas the Moroccan scum in Holland — once again, not all are scum, but there is a lot of Moroccan scum in Holland who makes the streets unsafe mostly young people and they are not taken seriously," Wilders said at his first campaign event in the blue collar town of Spijkenisse.
