Minister’s Reaction to Anti-Semitism Complaints Weak and Insufficient

Minister of Justice and the Interior, Ernst Hirsch Ballin (Christian Democrat), sent a letter to Parliament prior to the debate on anti-Semitism that took place last Thursday. The letter was vague and made no significant promises. One of the concrete suggestions was for collaboration to fight anti-Semitism amongst Muslim and Jewish organizations. The Minister suggested the Jewish Moroccan Network for this. [Comment: If any of his employees had looked on the Network’s website http://www.jmna.nl/, he would have found less than 5 items, the latest of which dates from the beginning of 2006. Checking on Google indicates very sporadic initiatives since then, usually one or less per year].
Letter is not yet on the official Ministry website
