The present-day public debate about Muslim migrants in the Netherlands is focusing on core values, and hence on tolerance. Can the majority tolerate (presumed) deviations in core values of minorities, and in reverse is there toleration of majority values by minorities? The article starts with a reflection on the different meanings of the word ‘tolerance’. It then goes on to analyze a recent debate on the role of Turkish religious organizations in the Netherlands vis à vis Dutch core values. Most Turkish Dutch citizens are for instance tolerant, but not affirmative of homosexuality, an attitude that may be related to their adherence to religious organizations. Should the Dutch government see their disapproval as intolerable in a modern society, and therefore supervise Turkish religious organizations on a permanent basis? The author argues for another preferable possibility: the acceptance of value plurality when it comes to ‘society’s operative public values’.
