Dutch Press Exposed Concealing Major Anti-Semitic Incident

In today’s Jerusalem Post, anti-Semitism expert Manfred Gerstenfeld exposes how the Dutch national media tried to conceal extreme anti-Semitic remarks on a mainstream Dutch TV station. Four Turkish-Dutch youths said there that they were satisfied with what Hitler did with the Jews in the Holocaust and that also all Jewish babies should be killed. It took 11 days until a columnist exposed the conspiracy of silence in one paper, others still concealed it. It was only after the Simon Wiesenthal Center wrote a letter to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte asking for an investigation of anti-Semitism in the Netherlands that the issue was mainstreamed and became a subject of debate in Parliament.
