In my February 2011 article Multiculturalism is a Big Failure, I noted that the leaders of Germany, the UK, France and Spain, all declared that multiculturalism is a failure.
A few months later, the Netherlands threw in the towel:
Gatestone Institute, 23 Jun 2011, The Netherlands to Abandon Multiculturalism
The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
A new integration bill (covering letter [PDF] and 15-page action plan [PDF]), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society."
The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups."
The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to [sic, should read who] ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.
The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, "it is not the government's job to integrate immigrants." The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.
Call me crazy but the Dutch government is actually following my advice. In my article mentioned above I wrote:
What the civilized world needs to do is to insist that Muslims fully adopt the culture of the country they live in. This means they must formally renounce Islam, declare that the Shariah is subordinate to the laws of the land, and stop acting like Muslims.
This means no hijab, no praying in the streets, no demanding accommodations to their religion, no funding of terror groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. No honor killing, no arranged marriages, no mutilation of female genitalia, no sex with goats or marriages to 9 year old girls. And this one will be hard, no rapes of white infidel women.
That is to say, Muslims must become civilized.
