Muslim mayor of Rotterdam tells Islamists to 'f**k off' on live TV

Brave Muslim political leaders have started to speak out against jihadists who adhere to the literal meaning of the Koran.  First, there was President al-Sisi of Egypt, telling clerics of the need to reform Islam.  Now comes the mayor of Rotterdam, a city that is already more than half populated by ethnic minorities, principally Muslims.  Breitbart reports:

Speaking to the NewsHour current affairs programme just hours after the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris, Mayor Aboutaleb became angered by the failure of some Muslims to adapt to their new homes, as he himself had done.

Mayor Aboutaleb said: “It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom… But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake pack your bags and leave.

“There may be a place in the world where you can be yourself, be honest with yourself and do not go and kill innocent journalists. And if you do not like it here because humorists you do not like make a newspaper, may I then say you can f*** off.

“This is stupid, this so incomprehensible. Vanish from the Netherlands if you cannot find your place here. All those well-meaning Muslims here will now be stared at”.

The mayor is a former journalist and was born in Morocco.  He is saying things that an American president should, but won’t.  He and President al-Sisi ought to be invited to address a joint session of Congress.  The GOP should do no less.
