The situation in The Netherlands is such that there is a need for a “masterclass jihadism” course for police agents in The Hague. This will make them more familiar with the rapidly growing extreme radicalism in some Muslim circles. Several sources claim that intermediaries are offering money to young Dutch Muslims to fight in Syria. (Official sources estimate the number of Dutch jihadis at present at around 100) About 20-25 youngsters from Delft, a town close to The Hague, have left to participate in the jihad. (It has been reported that two have been killed) www.ad.nl/ad/nl/1012/Nederland/article/detail/3414267/2013/03/23/Agenten-in-Den-Haag-krijgen-jihad-les.dhtml

A number of organizations of Dutch Moroccans has written a letter to the Labor Party in which they say that they will advise Dutch Moroccans to cease supporting the party if it agrees with a proposal by its Minister of Social Affairs Lodewijk Asscher to cut social welfare payments to Moroccans who do not live in the Netherlands. Asscher said that the organizations should tell Moroccans to freely choose their party of preference, instead of threatening.

Criminal organizations make regular use of corrupt government officials and police agents. They also bribe employees of airports, harbors and transport companies, as well as contacts in the real estate sector. The main areas where this takes place is in drug smuggling and human trafficking. This results from an investigation of the Ministry of Security of Justice into organized criminality. The document analyzes 800 gangs. At least one out of five gangs uses bribes. For the smuggling of cocaine, heroin, cannabis and synthetic drugs, the criminals also bribe - besides officials - employees of commercial companies. Furthermore, environmental officials are being bribed in order to be able to dispose of illegal waste. The gangs often have seemingly normal companies which use notaries, lawyers and auditors.

For the first time since 2009, the Netherlands has raised its terrorism warning rank to Level 3 - out of 4. This means that the National Coordinator for Fighting Terrorism and Safety (NCTV) considers terrorism a substantial threat to the country. Up until now, there was a Level 2 threat, which is a “limited threat.” The main concern is the return of Dutch Jihadists. Coordinator Dick Schoof said that there is a risk that the approximately 100 Dutch Jihadists abroad will influence others in the Netherlands to follow their path.

NOS TV station has reported that about 100 Dutch Muslims are presently active as Jihadists in countries such as Afghanistan, Somalia and Syria. Most are in Syria and have joined the Al Nusra Movement which wants to establish an Islamic state once President Assad is driven out. This movement is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. This makes the Netherlands one of the major European suppliers of fighting jihadists. Furthermore, this number is increasing rapidly. Not long ago, it was estimated at in the few tens. Terrorism experts are afraid that these people may radicalize even further when they return to the Netherlands.

A committee headed by former Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen has investigated the chaos of violence and destruction in the village of Haren in September 2012. A girl had posted on Facebook an official invitation to her 16th birthday party. Hundreds of youths from all over the country came to the village. Most came out of curiosity and there was no indication that people had come to riot. The report claims that the authorities had greatly underestimated the problems which would result. The organization of the police was poor – units had no communication with each other. There were many leaders, but little leadership. Policemen felt left alone by their authorities. There was a prohibition on alcoholic beverages that evening, but police didn’t respond against drinking youths.

Most of these youths are between 15 and 19 years old. One out of ten is younger than 15.

Mehmet Sahin, a doctoral student at Amsterdam University has had to go into hiding with his family due to death threats, upon the recommendation of the Mayor of Arnhem, Pauline Krikke. He is a volunteer who tries to re-educate street youths in Arnhem. A few weeks ago, Sahin interviewed some Dutch-Turkish youngsters on a TV station in which they said that they admired Hitler and the Holocaust. Apparently, people in the neighborhood where Sahin lives are collecting signatures to make him leave the area. The municipality has announced that the prosecution is investigating the matter. Labor Party parliamentarian Ahmed Marcouch announced that he will ask parliamentary questions about the threats saying, “It is horrible that someone has to be afraid because he has done something that we all should do – teach children not to hate.” He expressed the hope that the Turkish community would distance itself from this criminal behavior, which death threats are.

Israeli anti-Semitism expert Manfred Gerstenfeld says that at least 5 million Dutchmen have a devilish view on Israel. This results from a study conducted by the University of Bienenfeld for the German Social Democratic Friedrich Ebert Foundation. Out of these study results, 39% of the Dutch think that Israel conducts a war of extermination against the Palestinians. Gerstenfeld says that genocide and behaving like Nazis are the symbols of absolute evil in our days. Accusing the Jewish state falsely of the absolute evil reminds one of the diabolical Christian accusations of deicide and the Nazi accusations of the Jews being “sub-human vermin and bacteria.” He adds that these 5 million Dutchmen have the mentality of the darkest Middle Ages.

European Commission takes Netherlands to European Court Regarding Insufficient Protection of Pregnant Women
The European Commission is taking the Netherlands to the European Court in Luxembourg in view of discrimination of pregnant women in the country. There is no general protection of pregnant women in Dutch law which assures that they will receive their job position back, or an equivalent one when they return after giving birth. Marysha Molthoff of the Dutch College for Human Rights said that in high positions in particular, 10% of the women do not get all their tasks back. Five percent have been placed in an even lower position. These results are from a study the college undertook last year. The study shows that 45% of pregnant women had experienced discrimination in one way or another.www.trouw.nl/tr/nl/4504/Economie/article/detail/3404000/2013/03/05/Biedt-Nederland-zwangere-vrouwen-voldoende-bescherming-tegen-discriminatie.dhtml

Dutch Columnist Exposes Silence after anti-Semitic Muslims Youths Praise the Holocaust and Hitler on TV
Dutch columnist Elma Drayer exposed the fact that there were few reactions to the Turkish youths who praised the murder of Jews in the Holocaust as well as Hitler, on television. She wrote that if some youngster had said on television, “It would be good if all Muslims had been slaughtered, including babies,” that would have raised tremendous protest and even demonstrations in which leading leftists would have participated.
