Mayor Job Cohen of Amsterdam is prepared to give subsidies to radical mosques. He is thereby adopting a quite remarkable interpretation of the principle of separation of Church and State.
But that does not mean that we may not support any religious institutions, that we may not deploy any Imam to address radicalising youngsters, or even sometimes offer some extra support for building a mosque, synagogue or 'black' church, because the groups that make use of it are in a deprived situation. Yes, that means that we can also support an orthodox mosque if we have the arguments to assert that this mosque is in its place there."

Amsterdam Mayor pleas for Subsidising Radical Mosques
EU: Someone put the Netherlands out of its misery please. This is the worst interpretation of seperation of church/state that has been made in forever. That or this is the biggest reverse psych job ever.
