    Muslims attack "gay" model in Amsterdam!

    They dragged him off of the catwalk!?!?!

    Muslim gang attacks gay catwalk model
    By Tony Grew • June 6, 2008 - 14:45

    Over half of Dutch gays feel less safe than they did a year ago

    Gay people in Holland have been shocked by a public attack on a gay man in Amsterdam.

    Model Mike Du Pree was taking part in a fashion show to promote tolerance towards gay people when a gang of ten Muslim youths dragged him from the catwalk and beat him.

    A Dutch MP has called for the youths to be deported.

    Mr Du Pree's nose was broken in the attack, which was motivated by homophobia.

    The fashion event was held last week on a public holiday marking the birth of Holland's late Queen Julianna.

    Newspaper Gay Krant reports that a bystander intervened as the model was being beaten and a fight erupted.

    Fashion show organiser Jennifer Delano told the paper that the atmosphere at the event was tense, and that the violence shows Amsterdam is no longer a tolerant city.

    "Mike got dragged down by his arm," she said.

    ==========================

    At least members of the audience intervened! (I'm sick of these stories where people don't get involved when they see a crime or attack)

    They went to make trouble and get free press. Obviously they're very brave young men too because it took ten of them to attack one man.

    Hope Mr Du Pree feels better soon & that the bystander who intervened is ok too.

    To be fair, the Netherlands is a pretty confusing country. It has like 3 names in English alone.

    I'm glad this guy is okay and don't understand prejudice towards homosexuals.

    It's also interesting to me - the headline "Muslim gang attacks gay." If a white supremacist posse attacks a homosexual, I have a hard time believing the headline would associate the marauders with a religion, even though Christianity and the Bible are fundamental to that group as a whole. I just doubt the headline would be "Christian gang attacks gay" - more likely "White supremacist/skinheads attack gay."
