Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs regrets that the Dutch churches have not come out with a statement against the increased anti-Semitism in The Netherlands. A few days ago a stone was thrown through the window of Rabbi Jacobs’ home. He remarked that if Protestants had thrown a stone through the window of a bishop or a cardinal, he would have been at the forefront of those who would condemn it. (The talkbacks on the website included several hateful remarks against the chief rabbi.)

Thousands of Dutch Jews Suffer Anti-Semitism These Days

The conflict between Israel and Hamas has led to many threats against Dutch Jews.  According to a source which deals with the safety of Jewish citizens in south Amsterdam, cars are vandalized with swastikas.  Jewish families have removed the mezuzah – a roll of parchment which makes them identifiable as Jews – from their doorposts, in order to avoid becoming targets of violence.  The number of Jews who suffer from anti-Semitism in their environment is in the thousands.  Dennis Mok, the chairman of a security company, says that it provides security to 40 Jewish businesses and institutions. He recommends that all those who suffer from anti-Semitism should complain to the police.

Dutch Mayor Wants Putin’s Daughter Deported from The Netherlands

Pieter Broertjes, Mayor of Hilversum, said on the radio that he wanted 29-year-old Maria Putin, the daughter of the Russian President, thrown out of The Netherlands where she lives with her Dutch boyfriend.  This is because of the Dutch frustration with Russia concerning the major plane crash in Ukraine, where a large number of Dutch were killed. Broertjes later apologized on Twitter, saying that his remarks were not wise and stemmed from a feeling of helplessness. [Broertjes, in the past, was the editor-in-chief of the Dutch daily, Volkskrant.]

[Earlier, the Dutch state television had to admit that it had intentionally deleted similar banners from its report on pro-Palestinian demonstration in The Hague.]
