The killing of Theo van Gogh, who had made a film critical of Islam, has highlighted concerns over the radicalisation of Muslim youth in the Netherlands. Menno Steketee updates the response of the Dutch security services but the influence of extremists on supposedly liberal muslims has instead of declining due to security activites has instead risen sharply and tension is high among the youth of both the Islamic extremists and the Dutch nationalists. Several small clashes between different ethnic groups are being investigated to see if they have any bearing on the racial tension, but such clashes have risen threefold since the unwarranted murder of Theo Van Gogh. Specialist military personell are on standby and high alert after security cheifs warning of a possible Islamic attack to heighten the tensions, which may possibly incite the Dutch nationalists into action with counter attacks upon Islamic and foriegn communities throughout Holland.
