The Dutch Moonbat Princess

Princess Irene of the Netherlands, sister of Queen Beatrix, has had it with all this al Qaeda battling and baiting, just as she earlier had had it with all those cruise missiles in Europe. She has a better idea than all this messy confrontation:
“Western leaders of government have to take some steps. Talking to al-Qaeda and demonstrating that by doing that you can put an end to the classic enemy-view with real and open discussions”, according to Irene. She clearly distances herself from the hard language from President Bush this week when he addressed fighting terrorism.

“Western governments have to leave their prejudices at home during peace talks”, says Irene. Otherwise they won’t hear anything during such a conversation. Because of that a mediator is required. “that person would be qualified to break down each side’s tunnel visions.”

The root causes of Islamist violence can, according to Irene, be found in poverty, trade barriers, and wrong relations. “The differences between the haves and have-nots is totally out of balance”

The translation is courtesy of Peacetalk, Pierter Dorsman's blog on international politics and economics. He has a suggestion for how Irene can really help:
IDEA: Since they're one of the wealthiest families in the world, there is an excellent opportunity here for Irene and family to readjust the balance between haves and have-nots: al-Qaeda needs some cash.
