A Dutch politician who once said “Islam is a lie” and “The Koran is poison” has now converted to Islam.
Joram van Klaveren was a member of parliament for the far-right Freedom Party (PVV) which is led by anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders but now he admits he was wrong about Islam.
He made the switch whilst writing a book against Islam
“During that writing I came across more and more things that made my view on Islam falter,”he told Dutch radio.
“In previous years I had developed a great aversion to Islam. If you then have to conclude that you were not right, that is not fun. But as a God seeker I always felt a certain unrest. And that gradually disappeared. It felt a bit like coming home, in a religious sense. “Source: NRC
