Now This Is A Politician

In response to the murders of 17 French citizens last week, Ahmed Aboutaleb, mayor of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands made the following statement on television:

“if you do not like freedom, in Heaven’s name pack your bag and leave,”

Now this is a politician. This is a man who respects his country, his city, the citizens who elected him into office and the culture that opened their arms to him. While he remains true to who he is and what he believes, he stands up for the laws of his adopted country and his fellow citizens, even if they disagree with him.

If only the big man in the white house would do the same.
