Harry Mens: I never heard a Jewish conspiracy theory I didn’t like
No matter how many times you hear such nonsense, it never ceases to amaze how many people but into the “evil conspirator Jew” meme. Harry Mens’ anti-Semitic rant is akin to a scientist describing the process of photosynthesis as a yearly event when elves traditionally steal the color from leaves. KGS
Bad News From the Netherlands: “Harry Mens, a Dutch TV presenter and businessman, has developed a conspiracy theory purporting that Jewish politicians will control whichever government will rule the Netherlands. According to Mens, participants in the invented conspiracy are Liberal parliamentarian Uri Rosenthal – who has been charged by Queen Beatrix to investigate what government could be formed –Labor leader, Job Cohen, as well as his party fellow Lodewijk Asscher – the acting mayor of Amsterdam.
They are conspiring to work for a coalition led by the Liberals and Labor. The Jewish community has condemned Mens and without explicitly saying so indicated that his conspiracy theory is an old anti-Semitic motif.”
[Comment: The claim is even more ironic as in the last decade Cohen has repeatedly stressed that his being born Jewish is utterly meaningless to him. To prove this he has bent over backwards to accommodate Muslim immigrants and often looked the other way when they committed criminal acts. Asscher has Jewish roots though he himself is not Jewish].
