Parliamentarians: Dutch Embassy in Lebanon Should Fly Flag Again

A majority of the Dutch Parliament claims that the Netherlands should not have to be ashamed of its flag. They will ask Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen to raise the Dutch flag again at the embassy in Beirut. It was taken down over a week ago for security reasons. Parliamentarian Harry van Bommel (Socialist Party) said that the Netherlands should not yield to terror; if it does so in this one case, then the flag will soon be taken down in more than 50 Muslim countries.
