– Det nederlandske arbeiderpartiet PvdA (Partij van de Arbeid) hører bare på ortodokse muslimer og ignorerer marokkanere som er moderate eller ikke-troende, sier tre nederlandsk-marokkanske medlemmer i lokale byråd. De forutser at flere vil forlate PvdA som en følge av partiets gruppetenking:

«Atheistic Moroccans and secular Muslims say: why does the PvdA get so involved with religion?» says Mohammed Mohandis. He is a Gouda local council member for the PvdA and was recently elected chairman of the Young Socialists, the youth movement of the PvdA. «They are joining D66, because they find it a more liberal party.»

En av følgene er at marokkanere blir islamisert av ikke-muslimer, sier medlem av PvdA, Mohammed Mohandis:

As a result, it can happen that a Moroccan Dutch person who puts a glass of beer to his lips is warned by a white Dutch person that this is not Halal. In this way, you as a Moroccan are Islamised by non-Muslims, declares Mohandis. And that, he says, also happens in his own PvdA.

Mohandis gives an example: «If someone wants to leave their faith, this causes much resistance. Then you as PvdA should always stand behind the individual. And not behind the group. (…) There are still too many PvdA members that think in groups. Even our minister for integration, Eberhard van der Laan.»

– PvdA snakker om muslimer i Nederland som om de alle er strengt troende, mener byrådsmedlem i Rotterdam, Fouad el Haji, som legger til at de fleste marokkanske muslimer i Nederland er sekulære. Disse har imidlertid ikke noe podium i det politiske landskapet:

El Haji says he has unsuccessfully asked the PvdA leadership to spur emancipation. «I told (party leader) Wouter Bos once that I find it a pity that secularism is not a political theme. (…) Bos said: Take it up with Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the PvdA integration spokesman in the Lower House. And Dijsselbloem said: Put it down on paper first. I then sent him an extensive email. He answered that he would have his secretary make an appointment. That was in March. I have never heard any more about it.»

El Haji also believes that many Moroccans are leaving the PvdA. «I heard from youngsters that they went to other parties because the party did not pay them any attention. They go to D66, even though they naturally belong with the PvdA. To a lesser extent, they also go to GroenLinks and SP.»

Mostapha el Madkouri, byrådsmedlem i Almere, deler Mohandis and El Haji’s bekymringer om den utbredte gruppetenkingen. Han viser til at det PvdA-dominerte byrådet i Utrecht nylig åpnet en informasjonsskranke i en moskè som praktiserer kjønnssegregering med separate avdelinger for menn og kvinner. – Ikke en eneste hvit nederlender stiller seg positive til dette, og det er totalt forståelig, sier el Madkouri.

Også i Norge har flere debattanter med muslimsk bakgrunn advart om at det de oppfatter som en sterk, ortodoks muslimsk lobby som representerer religiøse særinteresser har kuppet innvandrer-representasjonen både i det politiske maktapparatet, det sivile samfunn og den øvrige debatten.
