    His comment did not go down well with most. Almost right away two hundred reactions appeared denouncing his extremist notion.

    “Muslim politician threatens to kill non-Muslims who eat food in public during Ramadan,” an American blogger tweeted. Other Twitterers wondered whether the tweet of Dibi was punishable by law.

    The former politician from Amsterdam had tried to become party leader of the Green leftists, GroenLinks, in 2012, but failed.

    He told Dutch news outlet at5 that he became very annoyed by the angry reactions to his tweet: “My inbox has turned into a sewer because drama queens are trying to distort my Ramadan joke.”

    Meanwhile in The Hague, Muslim youths are believed to have launched several attacks on a Hindu temple in the Schilderswijk district. The temple has in the past often been the target of vandalism during Ramadan: “We are harassed by young people not only during Ramadan, but also during our own religious festivities,” said Siddharth Ramdhani, a temple spokesman.

    But Coca-Cola in The Netherlands has shared a new advertisement on its Facebook page to fight “Islamophobia” during Ramadan. The video shows a young Muslim woman who resists temptation during the final hours of fasting before sunset, when a non-Muslim passerby in a tracksuit offers her a Coca-Cola.

    The Muslim woman refuses to accept the drink, because sunset has not yet arrived. The non-Muslim woman waits with her for the sun to set so they can drink from the iconic bottle together. The video ends with the slogan: “What unites us is greater than what divides us”.

    Many users on social media however remarked that this was not an example of “true integration,” but rather one of “reverse integration” in which the Dutch hosts integrated themselves into a foreign culture.
