Ridouan Taghi and Saïd Razzouki: just two of the drug dealers, gangsters, and murderers who have ‘culturally enriched’ the Netherlands.
On 18 September 2019, the well-known Dutch lawyer Derk Wiersum was shot and killed in front of his house in Amsterdam. The 44-year-old attorney was representing a crown witness in an affair that has become known as the Mocro-oorlog, which roughly translates into ‘Moroccan War.’ Wiersum was yet another victim in the gangland war that has cost many lives in the Netherlands.
The murder did not come as a surprise. One month earlier, government sources and independent researchers argued the Netherlands has become a narco-state. Every year, hundreds of millions of illicit euros — possibly billions — are being poured into the Dutch economy. The Netherlands produces an astonishing amount of marijuana, as well as synthetic drugs such as amphetamines and ecstasy.
The drug culture is not new to the Netherlands. Most people are aware of the country’s liberal drug policies. Soft drugs including marijuana and certain types of mushrooms are practically legal and the possession of small amounts of hard drugs is tolerated. These policies derive from the early 1970s, when many cultural-Marxist revolutions took place in the Western world.
Just like the mainstream of Dutch society, the criminal underworld got ‘diversified’ with the onset of mass immigration. The infrastructure, access to the sea, liberal drug culture, and rather soft sentences makes the country very attractive to criminals worldwide. Initially, criminals from China, Turkey, and Yugoslavia set up shop in the Netherlands, mostly in the larger cities.
Ever since the turn of the century, crime has become extremely violent, often leading to situations typical of the Third World. There are two reasons for this development: the very lucrative cocaine trade and the increasing role of Third-World criminals, mostly from Morocco and the Caribbean.
It is generally believed that the Moroccan War started around 2012, when a shipment of 200 kilograms of cocaine went missing. The criminals involved turned on each other, leading to a series of killings that continues to this day.
Currently, Ridouan Taghi and Saïd Razzouki — both ethnic Moroccans — are the most wanted criminals in the Netherlands and also feature on Interpol’s most wanted list. The two men earned hundreds of millions of euros by smuggling cocaine from South America to Europe. They are wanted for several murders, but possibly ordered dozens more.
Moroccan criminals like Taghi and Razzouki have crossed a line: they do not just kill criminals, but also innocents, lawyers, and even political refugees. They have ordered terror attacks and ISIS-style executions.
The overview below shows the most bizarre and gruesome events of the past few years:
- December 2014: A well-known Moroccan criminal’s wife was murdered before the eyes of her two young children.
- January 2015: An elderly woman was shot dead. The culprits could not find their intended target and decided to kill this random family member instead.
- December 2015: Moroccan gunmen kill an Iranian dissident, presumably by order of Hezbollah or Iran.
- March 2016: Cyclists in Amsterdam find a head on the windowsill of a water pipe lounge. The head, belonging to a 23-year-old Moroccan male, was put there as a warning to a rival gang.
- December 2016: A crime blogger who mentioned the names of Taghi and Razzouki was killed.
- November 2017: Another Iranian dissident was assassinated.
- February 2018: The office of De Telegraaf — the largest newspaper of the country — was firebombed, after a van slammed into the building’s windows. The newspaper had dared to report on the identities of Moroccan criminals. One of the newspaper’s leading journalists now lives under constant police protection.
- March 2018: Nabil B., a former Moroccan criminal, turned crown witness against Ridouan Taghi and Saïd Razzouki. As revenge, his innocent brother was shot and killed.
- 18 September 2019: Crown witness Nabil B.’s attorney, Derk Wiersum, was also killed.
Currently, it is unclear how the legal case against Taghi and Razzouki will proceed. Many lawyers will think twice before representing the crown witness. The idea of an ‘anonymous lawyer’ has already been proposed. However, it is not just attorneys who are threatened. Information retrieved from wiretaps reveal that Taghi and Razzouki wanted to kill the prosecutor as well.
The police, researchers, and journalists all ask themselves how it is possible that so many men in the Netherlands are willing to become assassins. According law enforcement, criminals can rely on an “inexhaustible source of young men” ready to kill. For instance: eyewitnesses estimated that Wiersum’s murderer was only between 16 and 20 years old.
Most of the recruited youths live in the (once White) working-class neighbourhoods surrounding the city centers of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, and Utrecht. The majority of them are Moroccan and to a lesser extent Surinamese or Antillean. They are by no means professionals. In the past few years, ten people have died in so-called vergismoorden — or ‘mistake murders’ — merely for resembling the intended target.
Social workers describe how the young criminals have no empathy, low cognitive ability, and an insatiable craving for money. Their average IQ is estimated at 80. Implicitly, the media are admitting the relation between race and IQ. Generally, this is considered a taboo subject, but apparently that taboo is broken due to the profound impact of the murder of the attorney.
It is no longer just the Average Joe who suffering from immigrant crime in the Netherlands: the elite are now directly affected as well.
