    In November 2008 a Dutch journalist, Joanie de Rijke, was abducted by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. She was held captive, raped repeatedly, and released after six days for a ransom of 100,000 euros ($137,000). After her ordeal, she acknowledged that her captors “did horrible things to me,” but added in several media interviews “They also respected me,” and emphasized “They are not monsters.”

    In a speech in the Dutch Parliament last Thursday, the Dutch opposition leader Geert Wilders referred to Joanie de Rijke’s case.


    “She was raped, but she was not angry. The journalist who went looking for the Taliban in Afghanistan saw her curiosity end in a cruel ordeal of multiple rape. While this would make others angry or sad, this journalist shows understanding. She says: ‘They also respected me.’ And she was given tea and biscuits.”


    “This story” Wilders said,

    “is a perfect illustration of the moral decline of our elites. They are so blinded by their own ideology that they turn a blind eye to the truth. Rape? Well, I would put this into perspective, says the leftist journalist: the Taliban are not monsters. Our elites prefer to deny reality rather than face it. One would expect: a woman is being raped and finds this unbearable. But this journalist is not angry because the Muslim involved also showed respect. Our elites, whether they are politicians, journalists, judges, subsidy gobblers or civil servants, are totally clueless. Plain common sense has been dumped in order to deny reality. It is not just this raped journalist who is suffering from Stockholm syndrome, but the entire Dutch elite. The only moral reference they have is: do not irritate the Muslims – that is the one thing they will condemn.”

    Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in hostages, where the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger or risk in which the hostages have been placed.

    de Rijke's severe case of Stockholm syndrome probably started long before she was kidnapped. Unfortunately, this potentially terminal disease is hardly limited to Holland.

    Stockholm Syndrome explained...
    :eusa_eh:
    What is Stockholm syndrome?
    21 August 2013 > Forty years ago, the term Stockholm Syndrome was coined at the end of a six-day bank siege. What is it and why is it cited time and again in hostage situations?

    No, it's a "let's hate rapists" thread, you moron.

    Go ahead and defend them. It's okay cuz they're muslims. You are the problem referenced, but naturally you're too stupid to know it.

    What kind of respect did they show her? Does anyone know? Did they politely ask her for her permission before raping her?

    Liberalism is a mental disease and it needs to be treated as such.

    The Brussels Journal: The Voice of Conservatism in Europe

    Always consider the source.

    Do you have any mainstream media sources for this story? Something without a huge bias?

    This thead is, my mistake, not just to talk about how evil Muslims are, but to talk about how dumb the left is. What fun.
