Wiesenthal Center: EU Should Intervene in Dutch Anti-Semitism

The Simon Wiesenthal Center issued a letter on Tuesday to EU Foreign Minister, Baroness Catherine Ashton, requesting the EU’s “intervention to investigate the rampant epidemic in anti-Semitic incidents in the Netherlands”. The letter mentioned that, among other incidents, during a commemoration ceremony in memory of the final transport of 3,000 Jewish children to their deaths bikers passing by shouted ‘Heil Hitler’ during the recitation of the mourner’s prayer. Hyves, the Dutch equivalent of Facebook, contains postings with numerous calls to “murder all Jews” and for “Hitler to finish the job”.
