Head of Dutch Intelligence Service: Thousands of Jihadi Sympathizers in the Netherlands

Rob Bertholee, the head of the Dutch General Intelligence Service, AIVD, said in an interview that there are hundreds of adherents of violent jihad in the Netherlands, and thousands of jihad sympathizers.  He added that in contrast, the authorities’ alertness to the problem has declined over the past few years. Bertholee remarked that jihadists have become more sophisticated.  He concluded that even if the AIVD had a budget seven times larger, it still could not guarantee a hundred percent safety for Dutch citizens.
