An attack on gays in Amsterdam...

Yet another attack by muslims...
A group of six men assaulted two gay men on the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam city centre last Thursday night.

The victims are aged 37 and 45 and were most likely attacked because of their sexual orientation, Amsterdam police said on Monday. The six men were arrested after the attack for public violence.

The 37-year-old and a friend had visited a nightclub in the centre of Amsterdam. They were attacked by a group of men as they were crossing the Rembrandtplein via the Regulierdwarsstraat towards the Vijzelstraat.

The men shouted insulting statements about homosexuals, threatened the two and spit in the face of one of them. As the victims approached the Vijzelstraat both were punched in the face. A witness says the group also threatened the two gay men, chanting "I'm going to kill you, I'm going to kill you."

The group then headed towards the Herengracht. Witnesses had called police and the six were arrested. The suspects are all between the ages of 15 and 19. Four are of Moroccan descent, one is Surinamese and one is Turkish.

I don't like your header "yet another attack by Muslims". You may have missed the news that some six weeks ago there was another incident of gay bashing in Amsterdam by ...... Canadian soldiers on leave. It is not only Muslims that misbehave.

Yeah, I don't really like your header much either. Now I realize that it may be difficult for you to get all the news current in Amsterdam, but it may surprise you just what a colorful variety of violence we have there.
2 of the most recent attacks were on muslim homosexuals by non muslims. One was leaving an "arab" gay bar and was attacked by a Latino man, another was attacked by a man of Afro-surinamese background.

And of course, the fact that two Canadian soldiers just beat up a gay fellow in the Vijzelstraat, should also temper your judgements. I live in Canada now, and I didn't here anything about that here.

Incidentally, if you want to preserve some kind of ethnic fingerpointing, then at least get it specific enough to be credible. The problem at hand is not with muslims in general, it is specifically with groups of young North Africans who are almost unanimously on the record for having a virulant hatred of homosexuals. There's not a reportable problem among muslims from Turkey, India or Indonesia. More from drunk Canadians, actually...
