ARJEN LUBACH: DE BLAUWE MOSKEE
Sorry we’re breaking our English rule here for Arjen Lubach…
…But this is comedy for Amsterdammers and many of us speak Dutch.
(Plus the YouTube auto translate is excellent here — Turn on English subtitles) Did you miss Arjen Lubach’s wonderful short piece on de Blauwe Moskee asking for the Friday call to prayer to be announced on loudspeakers. What a dick move.
In a time with 100% cell phone penetration and free apps announcing the call to prayer right there in your pocket, blasting five minutes of Arabic on Fridays in West is not the way to ‘normalize’ Islam. For one, do it in Dutch. And two, don’t do it at all. Arjen makes it funny, as usual, with his own take.
