As reader Shy Guy suggests, place your bets on who is behind this one. We all know that Muslims have a lot of grievances against the Dutch (heck, they have a lot of grievances everywhere about everything, but especially in places like the Netherlands, where they’ve taken a lot of control and have reached a critical mass of sorts). We know that in Holland, they’ve already assassinated Theo Van Gogh and threatened Geert Wilders and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
So who is behind this attempt by a car to crash into the Dutch Royal Family?
Hmmm . . .
At least two people have been killed and 12 injured in a serious incident during the royal family’s visit to Apeldoorn to celebrate Queen’s Day.
Who Tried to Kill Queen Beatrix?
TV pictures show a heavily-damaged black car driving through the barriers erected to keep the crowd under control, close to the open bus carrying queen Beatrix and the rest of her family.
The car hit several people and ploughed into a fenced-off obelisk.
Family members on board the open bus witnessed the incident.
The driver of the car was cut out and taken to an ambulance on a stretcher. One eyewitness told the Telegraaf someone had fallen out of the car shortly before it hit the pillar. Another said the car appeared to be attempting to drive at the bus.
The Telegraaf reports that the royal procession was running late by 20 minutes but that the driver appeared to have followed the royal bus exactly.
The rest of the celebrations in Apeldoorn have been cancelled and the royal family will not appear again in public, Nos tv reports.
Nos tv said it is difficult to find out more about the incident because the use of mobile phones has been banned.
Not sure why cell phones were banned there. Perhaps because they could be used as bombs.
This certainly appears deliberate and has echoes of the people who drove into the Glasgow airport a couple of years ago. And you know who they were. Doctors “of Peace.”
