Below is a report on the situation in the Netherlands by our expatriate Dutch correspondent H. Numan.
Anti-Semitism is alive and kicking
by H. Numan
A few days ago a “big” demonstration was held on the Dam in Amsterdam. To show the support of the Dutch for the poor oppressed starving misunderstood lovable Palestinians. The big guns of the extreme left were there: Harry “Baby-Ché” van Bommel (Socialist Party), Greta “the wicked witch” Duysenberg (no party is left enough for her), ex-Prime Minister Dries “Alzheimer” van Agt, ex-Foreign Affairs Minister Hans “Dhimmie” van den Broek. A big demonstration? Not really. Only 1500 people could be mobilized. The organizers claim however 10,000 participants. But then, lying for Allah is acceptable, what?
People, I feel ashamed. Not because of the above nutcases. They would have received standing ovations from 1938 until 1945 at National Socialist Movement (NSB — The Dutch quislings of WW2) meetings. The NSB wasn’t that much into anti-Semitism before 1938. Today they are the heroes of multiculturally correct anti-Semitic thinking. I’m ashamed because they lead a fashion. A fashion in which pure baseless unfiltered hatred once again rears its ugly head. Hating Jews is very much alive, as these misfits prove. Slowly but surely they change public opinion. What was unthinkable until a decade ago is now almost compulsory. That is why I feel ashamed.
I read on various Dutch forums “experts” uttering imbecilities about military matters, which grants them the right to vomit their virulent anti-Semitism. Imbecilic remarks about white phosphorus shells which would be used to ‘gas’ the poor Palestinians. Idiotic opinions about tank deployment. As if Israel is interested in blasting schools just for the fun of it.
In the bad old days the Jews stole Christian babies to sacrifice them. Today they commit genocide on the poor Palestinians. Question the experts, and they start getting abusive. Naturally, as they know full well they’re lying. Israel never has and never will commit genocide. In the few cases where excessive force was used, it wasn’t genocide. The Shabra and Shatilla massacres were not committed by the Israeli army, and led to parliamentary inquiries. Not that it mattered much: the terrorist propaganda machine is too well oiled.
What is genocide? An intentional policy to exterminate a population or large group of people. Mohammedans commit genocide in Darfur. The Nazis committed genocide as a matter of policy. The Hutus committed it in Rwanda. But not the Israeli government. According to our anti-Semitic ‘experts’ anything the Israeli army does is genocide, and its use of force should not go any further than throwing cotton balls.

Suppose Israeli soldiers executed Hamas terrorists (they certainly aren’t soldiers) on the spot. Technically that would be all right. Terrorists do not have the protection of the Geneva convention. But it would be morally wrong, and for that reason those soldiers would be prosecuted. Not for committing genocide, but for taking the law into their own hands. On the other hand, I really dread the fate of Israeli soldiers falling in the hands of Hamas. Almost certainly they will be executed, and not unlikely after some torture or public humiliation, given the chance.
The new anti-Semites are remarkably quiet about the use of civilians as life shields around military facilities. A tactic very popular in Gaza and Lebanon. Build a kindergarten on top of your missile site or ammo depot, and you’re safe. People, that is a war crime!
Israel is the inventor of the tankbulance: converted Merkava tanks, fully armed but equipped to act as ambulance. Why would they do that? Because they like building weird expensive ambulances? Or perhaps because terrorists prefer to shoot at ambulances? They get three for the price of one: normal ambulances aren’t armed and cannot shoot back. Probably you hit the wounded inside and finish them off for good, plus the unarmed crew. And as a bonus, it attracts other ambulances. The Israelis aren’t that stupid, so they use Merkavas. A 105 gun offers much better protection than a piece of paper from Geneva. But I have yet to hear one left-wing nut uttering a word about it.
Let’s be very clear about it: any support for the Palestinian cause is working towards Islam in your own country. Hamas’ avowed goal is the destruction of Israel, including all non Mohammedan citizens. Not just the Jews, but everybody not shouting heil Allah. After the destruction of Israel they want to continue on a world jihad. You can say lots of things about Hamas, none of them good, but not that they lack ambition. Supporting the Palestinian cause is supporting more understanding; more rights; more privileges for Muslims in your country.
There is only one nation in the entire Middle East that is democratic. Only one nation that complies with the Geneva convention and sticks to international agreements. Israel. No other nation there, and certainly no Islamic nation, even comes close. About the worst offenders are Iran, Sudan and the terrorist gang pretending to be the Palestinian government.
The notable nutcases I opened my article with aren’t democrats at all. ‘Baby Ché’ van Bommel is a dimwit (doing an interview in Al Jazeera warmly supporting the most offensive mosque in the Netherlands, and openly stating he doesn’t know squat about Islam.) top member of a party that openly doesn’t want democracy. Greta Duysenberg is so extreme left, there isn’t even party for it. Why she is famous (or better phrased: well known)? Because of her eccentric extremism and marriage to Wim Duysenberg, Dutch finance minister and the first director of the European Bank. Hans van den Broek was very open about banning and censuring Fitna. Since the law couldn’t stop Fitna, his idea was simply to amend that error. if he had had his way, we’d have a fully working censorship bureau long ago. Dries van Agt? Once a prime minister, not even a really bad one, now in serious need of a nurse wiping away his drool.
It’s just a matter of time before synagogues get torched or Jews bashed in the streets Sorry, my bad. That already happens on Dutch schools. But then: those damn Jew boys provoke it by wearing religious clothing in public. They had it coming. Gay bashing is already normal in Amsterdam. Hasn’t anything to do with Israel, of course. Only that in Israel gays are treated as normal human beings. Behold the miracles of a true multicultural society.
