RIJSWIJK – The comments from Integration Minister Ella Vogelaar about the future of Islam in the Netherlands show a great deal of courage, the Council of Moroccan Mosques in the Netherlands (RMMN) said on Tuesday.

Vogelaar said in an interview with Trouw on Saturday that the Netherlands should in future be home to a Judaeo-Christian Islamic tradition. Her statements provoked a great deal of criticism, especially from Freedom party PVV leader Geert Wilders and the liberal VVD.

The mosque council supports the minister's sentiments and expects that her outlook will help promote the integration of Muslims in the Netherlands.
