In 2015, the Netherlands seems to be the European country with the toughest restrictions on immigrants. The extremely permissive Dutch society has voiced or adopted some of the harshest declarations and measures against Muslim immigrants. Muslims have been accused of being involved with gangs and the raping of Dutch women, female genital mutilation, attacks on homosexuals, honour killings, etc. Theo van Gogh's focus switched to Islam and Muslims, following a well-known pattern for European skinheads and racists who start out as anti-Semites and move on to targeting and finding fault with Muslims, thus bringing a temporary 'relief' to Jews. Van Gogh caused widespread resentment in the Muslim community by consistently referring to Muslims as geitenneukers. Indeed, as of the early 2000s, Sweden had one of the highest rates of anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, coming third after Germany and Austria.
