Frustrated Somalis flee Holland for the freedom of Britain
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Tilburg
(Filed: 21/12/2004)

An estimated 20,000 Dutch Somalis have left Holland for Britain over the past five years, escaping a multicultural model once touted as the most enlightened in the world.

They say they are frustrated by a system that keeps them trapped in welfare dependency and fosters ethnic tension.

Somali Muslim families are moving en masse to Leicester and Birmingham from the industrial cities of Tilburg and Rotterdam.

The exodus is linked to the anti-Muslim feeling that burst into the open with the advent of Pim Fortuyn, the murdered populist politician whose party crushed the Dutch establishment in the 2002 elections.

But it began earlier. Adan Igeh Hussein, of the Somali European Forum, said Somalis felt bullied by a "forced assimilation" policy, which orders them to live apart in scattered housing.

"It's not that the British are more friendly than the Dutch, it is just that they let us stay as we are. Somalis can integrate without losing their cultural identity," he said.

Dutch rules make it hard for new arrivals to work for the first five years, yet migrants are resented if they live off state handouts.

"We don't want to depend on social benefits. We're a business-oriented people, but here the rules and red tape make it a nightmare to start anything. You have to have a certificate just to clean houses. In Britain it's so much easier if you want to set up a restaurant or a shop," he said.

Adan Hassan, the Somali owner of a Tilburg internet cafe, said Holland's image had always been an illusion. "The Dutch think they are multi-cultural, tolerant people, and they are in a way, but if you go deeply inside nothing is what it seems. The system is closed to outsiders," he said.

"We've been here for 12 or 15 years. The government gives us housing, it spends a lot of money, but it's still been a failure. After one year in Britain, everybody is very happy." Half of Tilburg's 3,000 Somalis have already left, mostly crowding together on a few streets in Leicester.

The Racism and Extreme Right Monitor in Holland has reported a surge in violent attacks on Dutch Muslims since the murder of the film-maker Theo van Gogh (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;sessionid=ANQ42TFUB0WG1QFIQMG SM54AVCBQWJVC?xml=/news/2004/11/03/wgogh03.xml) by an Islamic fanatic.

Denmark has also seen an exodus of Somalis, with up to 4,000 leaving for Britain from Aarhus over two years.

A Danish study found that migrants were shocked by Britain's poor housing and dirty streets, but still clung to an "idyllic" vision of English freedom "even after arriving".

It said Somali women were made to feel inadequate by Denmark's feminism if they stayed at home to look after their children.

Academic studies estimate that there are now 70,000 to 100,000 Somalis in Britain. Officially the figure is 20,000.

Up in my neck of the woods Somalis are the lowest form of dirty scum. They're lazy, criminal, stupid, violent trash...even for niggers. It really doesn't get much lower than these parasites.

If there was an African sub-race at the bottom of the barrel, the Somalis would be it!
