AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- Muslim radicalism appears to be decreasing in the Netherlands, a government report concludes.
The report, using data gathered by intelligence agencies, found that fewer clerics are preaching radical sermons and more are speaking out against extreme religious and political views, Radio Netherlands/Expatica reported. At the same time, Dutch citizens appear to be more positive about the Muslim community.
About 850,000 Muslims live in the Netherlands. The report concluded that only about 3 percent are open to radical religious teaching.
