Ayaan Hirsi Ali Fallout: Dutch Government Resigns

The pro-Jihadist, pro-appeasement campaign that drove Ayaan Hirsi Ali out of the Netherlands and tried to strip her of her citizenship has had its dagger turned against itself and struck the body politic deeper than I'd imagined (or hoped). According to AFP, this failed railroading sparked such a row over Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk, the instigator of the campagn, that the ruling coalition collapsed and the government had no choice except to resign en mass.

Now the Dutch will have to find someone to form a new government. Only those with spines need apply.

Tip o' the hat to the Captain's Quarters.
