Dangerous politics in the Netherlands

The Weekly Standard has a good review of the Netherlands' problems with Islamic terrorists.
Many discussions of the Netherlands suggest that the country's multicultural model is "under threat." Maybe that was true a year ago. Now it would be more accurate to say there is a society-wide consensus that it has failed.

It is frightening how many Dutch politicians require a close protection detail or are in hiding. Could it happen here?
