The incidence of overt anti-Semitism in the Netherlands has increased recently, and virtually all of the reported cases involve culture enrichers, rather than “persons of Dutch background”.
Our Flemish correspondent VH has translated an article from Elsevier about a recent incident in Amsterdam, and follows it with his own notes. The full video is embedded at the bottom of this post:
Dutch Rabbi gets Hitler salute and raises the alarm about anti-Semitism
by Maartje Willems
In a broadcast of the Dutch TV program “The Five W’s” by the [Dutch] Jewish Broadcasting Organization, one can see Rabbi Lody van de Kamp walk with two students though Amsterdam where he is threatened by Moroccan youths. One of them even gives him a Hitler salute.
In the TV program Van de Kamp raises the alarm about the growing anti-Semitism in the Netherlands. He wants Jews to be able to walk normally in all areas of the city, and at present that is not the case.
“It happens regularly that one is mocked,” says Rabbi Van de Kamp. The two students also claim to have been harassed often when they walk through the city.
In other cities of the Netherlands there have also been reports filed with the police because Jews were attacked.
Last week it became known that the Amsterdam borough “De Baarsjes” even has a hidden synagogue, because Jews are afraid of trouble otherwise.
Last week PvdA member Ahmed Marcouch called for the deployment of a lokjood [“decoy Jew”] to halt the growing anti-Semitism.
“As far as I am concerned, you may deploy a decoy Jew, but you must nab them. You must do everything to increase the chances of getting them. These look like they are just incidents, but this is serious.”
Elsevier comment: Why is there so little public outrage about the increasing aggression of Dutch-Moroccan street-scum?

 Paul Andersson Toussaint (Dutch journalist): “In the Amsterdam neighborhood De Baarsjes is a hidden synagogue: there Jews gather every Saturday, but secretly. The Moroccans may not have noticed it. In our capital Amsterdam, there are six neighborhoods where Jews wearing a keppeltje [yarmulke] or are dressed in the Orthodox fashion (as well as those recognizable as gay people) can no longer appear without running a high risk of being cursed, spit on, threatened, or even harassed. All of those are neighborhoods in which there is a concentration of Moroccan Dutch. I know two Orthodox Jews, who for years on their way to their ‘Sjoel’ [synagogue] in the neighborhood De Pijp have been harassed and insulted every Sabbath by groups of Moroccan youths, mocking them with ‘dirty cancer Jew. Allah will slaughter you all’. One of them moved to Israel, the other to Amstelveen [south of Amsterdam] where ‘they’ are not present. Most of their Jewish friends don’t dare to wear a keppeltje [yarmulke] in the [neighborhoods] Indische Buurt, the Transvaalbuurt, and Nieuw-West, or pull a hat over their keppeltje [yarmulke]. Even Rabbi Raphael Evers, who lives in the neat neighborhood Buitenveldert, has developed avoidant behavior, and tries to minimize his trips out on the street, because he almost always is offended by Moroccans: ‘Hey. Hitler forgot one’. Many Jews he knows have the same experiences.” [source]
“A conservative estimate: I am physically and verbally threatened on average twice a week, intimidated or otherwise indecently or (extremely) aggressively treated by immigrant boys and men. The vast majority in that group is of Moroccan descent. There is almost never a justification for the excessive behavior of these guys. Their conduct undoubtedly has a racist origin. The fact that I am a native Dutchman is enough for them. There are thousands of such hate-heads walking around in Amsterdam. […] My own research and strolls in districts in Amsterdam show that it is a much broader phenomenon. There is no ethnic community where we-they thinking has developed so strongly as with the Moroccans. There is a large group of Moroccans living in Amsterdam that do not feel Dutch at all, but Moroccan. And who are hostile towards the Dutch, Dutch society, and the West.” [source]
