I came across this site called EuropeNews which has as its motto “No Tolerance for Intolerance – No Apology for Being Free.” Now off the bat this site seemed a bit strange because they felt the need to verbalize this statement, and sounded a lot like the speel of the anti-Muslim and Islamophobia crowd. Low and behold it is a site affiliated with the VVD and other European neo-Fascist and Nationalist groups.

Anyway they had a little piece where the VVD complained about this du’a that Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan gave from what seems like must have been the 90’s. They also provide an atrocious translation which prompted me to do another translation even though I have scant time for it, but it pains me to see Arabic abused this way.

Fascist European Party’s (Incomplete/Misleading) Translation:
