Mayor's message to Muslims: If you don't like freedom, fuck off

(1:03) January 8, 2015: Moroccan-born Mayor of Rotterdam Ahmed Aboutaleb told intolerant Muslims to fuck off.
Transcript: "It is incomprehensible how someone can turn against freedom like this. But if you can't stand the freedom, for heaven's sake, pack your bags and leave. There must be somewhere in the world where you belong. Be honest to yourself and don't go murdering innocent journalists. That is so retarded, so incomprehensible. Go away if you can't accept the society we want to build here because we only want those people here, all the Muslims, all the well-meaning Muslims who are now probably viewed with suspicion. We want to keep all these people together in what I call the "We Society", and if you can't accept humourists who create a newspaper, I would like to say, "fuck off"."

His point is perfectly valid. If you don't like the society in which you live, just leave it and go where you are in the majority. What the Charlie Hebdoe terrorists did was push back tolerance and understanding for the bulk of Muslims. Their inability to tolerate a joke against their prophet did more harm than good - but at least they won't be doing it again.

His point is perfectly valid, but pointless. Radical Islamists want to change the world, not find a receptive corner to retreat to.

Understood, but the radicals seem to miss the fact that their actions simply solidify non-muslims' perception that Islam = violence and intolerance. That just makes matters worse for the large majority of muslims who want to live a peaceful life.

To try and force change by small acts of violence is counter productive and only makes their goal harder to reach.

I don't know much Dutch, but I think what he actually said was the slightly less provocative "run and jump", which means: "get lost", rather than the swearword laden version.
