Dutch Reporter Conducting Interview When ‘Refugees’ Make a Scene

Two apparently Muslim migrants conducted a drive-by spit-on at a young female reporter during an on-air broadcast in Rotterdam, Netherlands earlier this week.

The incident begins with one migrant who goes by on a bicycle shouting, “F*** you” multiple times. Seconds later, two migrants on a motorcycle nearly run the reporter and interviewee over, while spitting at the reporter’s face.

A man identified as Livable Rotterdam Councillor Bart Joost van Rij then attempts to hit the men with his bag as they speed past him.

Through the entire scene, the reporter remains calm and finishes her segment. The story was on the city’s mayor, Ahmed Aboutaleb, a Muslim dual citizen of the Netherlands and Morocco. He supports migrants and calls himself a “jihadist,” claiming that the word is misunderstood.

“Jihadist is the completely wrong word. I am a jihadist. I’m doing the right thing for the city the entire day. I’m a jihadist,” he said. “There are 68 definitions of jihad, if you remove a spike from the street or a piece of glass … to prevent a bicycle being harmed by the spike, you are a jihadist.”

However, Mayor Aboutaleb does not seem to condone violence; after the attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, he said, in essence, if you don’t like the West, “pack your bags.”

“As a mayor, I like people that have radical ideas,” he said. “Thanks to having radical ideas about the way to lead our civilisations and our societies we left the Stone Age. But that’s not what we are talking about. We’re talking about a group of people who are threatening others, not only because they have radical ideas, but they believe they have their own truth justifying their own goals … by using violence.”

It is unclear why the migrants decided to mistreat the reporter. (For more from the author of “Dutch Reporter Conducting Interview When ‘Refugees’ Make a Scene” please click HERE)
