Dutch Minister Concerned about Wilting Flowers in Gaza

On 4 October 2007 Dutch Minister of Development Cooperation Bert Koenders of the Labor Party made available three million Euro for emergency aid for Gaza. In his press release he wrote "The one and a half million inhabitants of Gaza are victims of the closure of the borders by the Israeli army after the takeover by Hamas [of the Gaza Strip]." His press release also mentioned that due to the closure of the border passage to Israel, carnations to be exported to the Netherlands had to be destroyed.

"Bad News" blogger's comment: The press release does not make any mention about the thousands of rockets and mortars that Hamas has shot, or allowed to be shot, at Israeli villages, killing and wounding many civilians. It also remains silent about the genocidal intentions of Hamas, as laid down in the Hamas Charter, for instance in its Article 7: “Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!"

Apparently Koenders cares more about wilting flowers than about dead and wounded civilians.,2007/10/Minister-Koenders-geeft-3-miljoen-voor-Gaza.html
