Folks, this is as serious as it gets. What has to happen before governments take these issues with great seriousness? It’s gone way past more policies of social inclusiveness, in Dutch society, as well as in other corners of Europe, are huge groups of Muslim minorities  who are very hostile towards Jews, and the host society.

Most alarmingly, the Dutch national media have remained silent on the findings of a study by the University of Bielefeld that 38% of the Dutch believe that Israel conducts a war of extermination against the Palestinians.

This is a satanic view of Israel like in the Middle Ages towards Jews, as well as under the Nazi tyranny. It does not help the Dutch that this information has been floating around on the internet, and they haven’t done anything concrete, and now the Simon Wiesenthal Center has had to raise it with the Deputy Prime minister of the Netherlands.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) in Los Angeles, visited the Netherlands last week to speak with leading politicians, top terror experts and Jewish community leaders about internet hate and incitement to terror. Rabbi Cooper, during whose visit the terror attacks at the Boston marathon took place, said that in the past, the SWC had already exposed Al Qaeda’s promotion of sealing explosives in pressure cookers, as was the case in Boston.

He also warned his counterparts that the SWC had discovered that the site of an extremist Dutch Muslim organization, Sharia4Holland links to a Fatwa of the Salafist Sheikh Abu Al-Mundhir Al-Shanqiti. In it, this prominent Muslim religious leader permits terror attacks against churches and synagogues if they are against Islam.

Though the sheikh does not explicitly call for this, fanatics can read between the lines and understand what is expected of them. In an interview with the largest Dutch daily de Telegraaf,  Rabbi Cooper stated that this Fatwa means that such attacks can also take place in the Netherlands.

The Dutch government does not provide any financial assistance to assure security for Dutch Jewish institutions, despite the threats and the community’s repeated requests for this assistance. The safeguarding of its members has thus become a heavy burden for the small organized community.

Having to place the media’s feet to the fire in order to get them to report on an issue or incident, isn’t the desired method in getting the news out into the public, but it remains the only way presently. If not for a highly corrupted media, much of what I do on this blog would be rendered, repetitive, and therefore uninteresting.

NOTE: The following should be of worry to any person, Jew and non-Jew alike, who say ”Never Again” on Holocaust Memorial Day:

MDI concludes that contemporary anti-Semitism has been mainstreamed in the Netherlands. MDI also reported that the Dutch government has eliminated their funding out of budget considerations.

Dutch press tries to hide anti-Semitic incident

By MANFRED GERSTENFELD (from the J’lem Post)

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe anti-Semitic youths affair initially got more international attention on global websites than in the Netherlands’ media.

‘I am satisfied with what Hitler did with the Jews” and “Hitler should have killed all Jews.” These, plus killing all Jewish babies, were the essence of remarks made by four Dutch-Turkish youths from the town of Arnhem during a Dutch television interview on February 17. Their interviewer was a young Turkish neighborhood volunteer, Mehmet Sahin.

The program was broadcast on a mainstream network, yet only a few Internet blogs commented on it. Freedom of speech is a highly protected right in the Netherlands.

Hardly any attention is given to another “right” of the media, namely the freedom to conceal the news.

In a press release on February 25, Dutch- Israel defense organization CIDI called upon Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker to undertake a national investigation into anti-Semitic prejudice among school children. This press release also received no attention in the national media. It took until March 13 before the first minister, Lodewijk Asscher of Social Affairs, condemned these anti-Semitic youths.

On February 28, the interview finally received mention in a national daily.

Columnist Elma Drayer wrote in Trouw that if native Dutch youngsters would have said on national TV that Muslims, including babies, should be slaughtered, it would have led to an uproar and demonstrations in which prominent Dutch leftists would have also joined. Drayer’s column hardly got any attention elsewhere.

The anti-Semitic youths issue attained a new dimension however, when the Simon Wiesenthal Center wrote a personal letter to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, which was also sent to members of parliament. The SWC called on the Dutch prime minister to undertake a comprehensive study of anti- Semitism in Dutch society in order to initiate effective measures to combat these prejudices.

The Netherlands’ largest paper, the Telegraaf, made this a front-page story in its Saturday, March 8 edition. Some other national papers also mentioned the letter.

The SWC, from overseas, managed to create far more awareness in the Dutch press about this affair than CIDI, which for decades has networked with major Dutch media. The Dutch Jewish community has been under increasing pressure in the past few years, partly due to attacks on ritual slaughter and to a lesser extent, on circumcision.

Developments in the anti-Semitic youths affair seem to indicate that international Jewish organizations can have far more influence than Dutch Jewry and its supporters.

In its letter to Prime Minister Rutte, the SWC highlighted a central element of this issue. The interviewees claimed their feelings were shared by Dutch natives. They claimed that “Nobody in our school likes Jews.”

In the interim it became known that Sahin and his family had gone into hiding due to death threats he received via email and social media. He also experienced name-calling on the streets of his neighborhood.

The chairman of a Turkish mosque in Arnhem whitewashed the youths on a Turkish news site, claiming that they had become victims of provocation.

The anti-Semitic youths affair initially got far more international attention on global websites than in the Netherlands’ media.

Volunteers sub-titled the Dutch video in English and French and posted it on the Internet. Also mentioned were a variety of other negative developments in the Netherlands.

One of them is the Dutch government’s decision in favor of compulsory labeling for produce manufactured in settlements in the West Bank.

There are many other such developments.

MDI, an organization which tracks discrimination on Dutch Internet sites, found that in 2012 anti-Semitism/Holocaust denial is again by far the chief category of Internet hate at 28 percent. It is followed by expressions of hatred of Muslims at 19 percent.

This is against a background where the Muslim population in the Netherlands is around 1 million – at least 20 times the number of Jews. MDI concludes that contemporary anti-Semitism has been mainstreamed in the Netherlands. MDI also reported that the Dutch government has eliminated their funding out of budget considerations.

Labor Party leader Diederik Samsom attacked Israel at his party’s first congress on the Middle East. He said that Israel transgresses international law. Samsom, who was instrumental in creating the present Liberal-Labor government, did not mention that the Netherlands itself doesn’t obey international law. It is a signatory of the UN Convention on Genocide, which obligates it to bring Iran before an international court. Samsom’s double standards against Israel are anti-Semitic, according to the European working definition of anti-Semitism. His ignorance was also shown when in his broad overview of the Middle East, he forgot to mention Turkey, its largest country.

The Arnhem youths affair is just the tip of the Dutch anti-Semitic iceberg. Any investigator will quickly find that there is widespread anti-Semitism among Dutch Muslims.

It is far from limited to what white-washers are wont to say about street youth, because it can also be found among many adults and university students.

Anti-Semitism should also be investigated in detail in the native Dutch community.

This would include studying how major problems are hidden by the media, deficiencies in appropriate action taken on issues which have been known for many years already and the Dutch authorities’ politically hollow rhetoric. Methods to alleviate anti-Semitism would have to be developed even if there is no hope of it being eradicated completely. The more Dutch authorities shirk their responsibilities, the worse these problems will become.

The miserable political European self anointed elite are utopians, their agendas and policies have to be viewed under that rubric. Multiculturalism is based upon an unrealistic premise that all cultures are equal (with Western culture being that much less equal), and that these cultures can exist in equality and parity with the culture of the host state. The fact that it has failed in every state that’s attempted it, doesn’t deter the utopians, they close their eyes to the truth, not allowing any facts to get in their way.

The EU is a leviathan, an entirely undemocratic (in contrast to representational government directly accountable to the electorate) institution, where faceless bureaucrats dictate their whims to the people. Geert Wilders has penned a piece in Swedish to the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilie Malmström, advising her to live out the policies her office insists upon implementing, as the Dutch seek to divest themselves from the whole EU project.

NOTE: Gates of Vienna took the time to get the English translation of the original Swedish text.

Gates of Vienna: As mentioned here the other day, Geert Wilders and his PVV party are running for election in the Netherlands on a platform calling for Dutch withdrawal from the European Union. Today Mr. Wilders wrote an open letter in Swedish to Cecilia Malmström about the interference by the European Commission in what properly should be the Netherlands’ internal affairs.

Many thanks to Ted Ekeroth for the translation:

Cecilia Malmström,

The ties between the Netherlands and Sweden go way back. For centuries we traded cereal crops with each other, Dutchmen helped establish Göteborg, and older Dutchmen remember, with warm feelings, “the white bread” from Sweden that marked the end of the long, dark “hunger winter” of 1944-1945 in Holland.

Up until now, we haven’t had any reason to look at Sweden in any other way than with appreciation.

And yet it seems that we now have to view this beautiful country with different eyes. You want EU-domination where others want freedom. Not one single Dutchmen has voted for you. We don’t know who you are. We don’t know you, but you force your ideas on our people.

Your interview with [the French newspaper] Le Monde shows that you brand people who are critical of mass immigration and Islam as xenophobic and populists. That is apparently what you think about large parts of the Dutch population. You also have high regard for the “world of academia”. Let me make the point that these highly educated people do not represent anyone other than themselves.

I urge you not to confuse your naïve multicultural dream with reality. Maybe you should become acquainted with what mass immigration means to millions of Dutchmen: more criminality, welfare dependency, alienation, problems in education, etc.

Maybe it would be a good idea for you to move to an Islamized area. Not for a brief visit of a few hours, after which you get picked up by a chauffeured car, but permanently. Islamized areas such as Kanaleneiland (Utrecht), Transvalal (The Hague) or Rotterdam-South would be excellent for this purpose. Can we assist in finding you an apartment? We will gladly help with that. You speak of “cultural enrichment”? You shouldn’t deny that to yourself any longer.

The dominance of the EU is in contradiction to our ancient struggle for freedom and independence. De Partij voor de Vrijheid, the Party for Freedom, thinks that the people of the Netherlands must be able to decide about their own borders and their own immigration policy. We are suffering from your absurd refusal to allow us to make even the slightest limitation of policies for entering our country. You don’t even want to limit the number of partners that one is allowed to bring into the Netherlands!

Your involvement does not fit in with the freedom and independence of the Dutch. Therefore, we urge you to cease these activities and resign! That would make the time that the Netherlands still need to free itself from the European Union somewhat more bearable.

An answer would be appreciated.

With kind regards,

Geert Wilders



He should have just kept his yap shut, and said that he’ll look into it, now he’s forced to resign in shame over his buffoonish statements. Too bad the false report is based on all too familiar scenarios in Europe where real jihadis are actually being released due to some ridiculous reason or another. Video is here.

The ”reporter” delivers the hook

The Labour politician takes the hook and swallows it whole

Dutch Labor Party MP Resigns after Making a Fool of Himself

Dutch Labor Party MP John Leerdam has resigned his seat after he made a fool of himself in a radio interview. A reporter had asked him about his reaction to the invented case of a street terrorist “Yael Yablahblah.” The journalist said that this (non-existent) terrorist had been released due to a judicial error. Leerdam said that he was well aware of the case and had discussed it with the Deputy Head of the faction, but was not allowed to give out details. He was also asked to comment on new proposals made by former Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Leerdam commented on it, unaware that Sharon has been in a coma for more than five years.

Thanks to Esther over at Islam In Europe for reporting on this important find. The more one digs into the suspected connections of top and middle level Muslim politicians with radical fundamentalist Islamic groups, the more one finds a close and cozy relationship between them. This is a major deal and needs to be spread far and wide. KGS

Islam in Europe: A top official in Rotterdam, Bilal Taner, is in contact with a Turkish radical-Islamist organization, which is fiercely anti-Israeli and anti-American, openly supports the Hamas terror organization and glorifies martyrdom for Jihadists.
The warm personal connection with Rotterdam senior adviser Bilal Taner was recently clarified when he was extensively congratulated in an orthodox-religious manner on the Haksöz Haber website for the birth of his daughter. This website serves as a platform for radical Islamists, anti-Israeli and anti-American authors. The radical Turkish movement reject societies which are not based on the Koran.
The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism wrote in a 2005 report that “Haksöz is a Turkish-language Jihad website which glorifies martyrdom, calls for resistance against the occupation in Iraq and the Palestinian territories and shows torture scenes in Iraq”. The website shows photos of dead Hamas members with titles such as “to the light of the Koran” and “The martyrs light our way.”
The movement supports the armed struggle of Hamas, Which is called a terrorist organization by the EU. In the German-language American Jewish Committee 2006 report “Antisemitism – Made in Iran” (Antisemitismus – Made in Iran) it says: “The goals of Haksöz include uniting Muslims in the battle against Israel and the United States”.

This is not unlike the anti-democratic cordon sanitaire Belgians have formed against the Vlaams Belang. Once again the wishes of the people are ignored by the ruling elite with their representative politicians forced into the ranks of the opposition. The Baron has the details. KGS

The Romance is Over

by Baron Bodissey
For the last few weeks, Geert Wilders’ party (De Partij Voor de Vrijheid, or PVV) has been negotiating with the two “center-right” parties, the VVD and the CDA, on the formation of a minority governing coalition. The idea has been that a CDA/VVD coalition would enjoy PVV support, thereby allowing it to govern.
While negotiations dragged on, the PVV’s popularity in the Netherlands has increased. The most recent polls show it gaining as many as seven seats if elections were to be held again, going from 24 to 31. In some polls it is the most popular party in the country.
This has given Mr. Wilders and his party a very strong negotiating position. But now comes word that the negotiations for a government have failed, and have been called off. Our Flemish correspondent VH has translated the latest from Elsevier:

Wilders: The trust in the CDA has hit rock bottom
by Marlou Visser
The lack of confidence in the CDA [Christian Democrats] has led the PVV to stop the formation of a right wing cabinet. PVV leader Geert Wilders says he deeply regrets this, but now becomes the opposition leader. Wilders announced this at a news conference on Friday, September 3.
Wilders offered the CDA parliamentary leader Maxime Verhagen a compromise. If Verhagen would ensure that the three dissidents within the CDA Group, Ab Klink, Kathleen Ferrier and Ad Koppejan, would accept a “yes” by the CDA congress as binding, and otherwise would leave, Wilders would still continue with the formation [of a government]. This guarantee Verhagen could [or would] not give, after which the information negotiations failed.

The anti-democratic Left is pure poison. They’ll lie cheat and swindle their way into power, then allow mass immigration to help prop up their cruel rule. They’re blood suckers on the capitalist throat, and both of their deadly siblings, the communists and the fascists, play a game of Cain and Able in order to validate the others existence while Rome burns.
Calling Geert Wilders a “far-right” poltician tells more about the al-Reuters news organization than about the man himself, if he were an American politician, he would be called a conservative Republican. Such as it is here la lal land Europe, where anyone who doesn’t agree with his/her own colonization through the mass immigration of non-democratic friendly Muslims, as well as insisting upon the right to voice an opinion contrary to that of the EU politburo’s stated ”wisdon”, will be cast out into the outer darkness with the wailing and gnashing of teeth.  KGS 

Labour figure calls on others to keep Wilders out of govt

AMSTERDAM, Feb 23 (al-Reuters) – A Dutch Labour politician’s call to keep far-right conservative leader Geert Wilders out of a new government has stirred anger among other parties who consider the move undemocratic and likely to drive voters towards him.
Wilders and his Freedom Party have been a focus of debate since the Dutch cabinet collapsed on Saturday, as the election which could be held as early as May will be a key opportunity for the anti-immigration group to increase its influence after a stunning success at European elections last year.
Frans Timmermans, a member of the Labour party and minister for European affairs, said on Monday that Labour would refuse to govern in coalition with Wilders’ party, and he called on other parties to consider a similar approach.
So far the CDA and VVD have left the door open to be in a coalition with Wilders. But in recent polls, just 27 percent of respondents said their reaction to a combination of the three in a cabinet would be ‘positive’ or ‘very positive’.
Wilders, who believes that Islam is a violent religion and what he calls the Islamisation of Europe must stop, has consistently challenged the established order with his ferocious debating style, often accusing the government of cowardice.
He set up his own party after he was forced out of the VVD, and has lived under guard since 2004, when a Dutch-Moroccan killed filmmaker and Islam critic Theo van Gogh.
He has rallied support amongst many Dutch people who are uncomfortable with the rapid changes in their country, and has filled the void left by populist Pim Fortuyn who had called for an end to immigration before he was gunned down in 2002.
