Under Pressure, Mosque Delays Provocative Symposium

A Muslim organization Platform Bewust Moslim had planned a symposium in the Al-Amal mosque in Hilversum on “Ethnic Cleansing of the Palestinians”on May 4th. This is National Memorial Day for the dead of the Second World War. The largest number of dead in the Netherlands belonged to the Jewish community. There was much protest against this provocation by the organizers. The Freedom Party asked the Ministers of Interior and Social Affairs to close the mosque. The Mayor of Hilversum asked the organizers to delay the meeting. Under pressure, the organizers said that there was so much interest, that the mosque was too small to hold everyone and they delayed the symposium.
