Anti-Semitism in the Netherlands

Netherlands: Rabbi: I was threatened with a bicycle chain……


It’s getting worse here…


Dutch Rabbi tells about regular antisemitic attacks


Rabbi Aryeh Leib Heintz of Utrecht shares that he is confronted with antisemitic scolding on a daily basis. He is regularly called a “lousy Jew” or a “cancer Jew.” In addition, people make the Hitler salute in his presence.


Swastikas have been carved on his front door. He was once threatened with a bicycle chain.  His son has also been attacked – once by a drunk Muslim who shouted “Bin laden” at him.


Rabbi Heintz avoids certain parts of town and frequently complains to the police but not daily, as this would become too time-consuming.
