Default Holland (English speaking)

Rights watchdog sounds alarm over Dutch Islamophobia

* Reports Muslims being ‘disproportionately targeted’ by security policies
* ‘Jew’ being used as an insult

STRASBOURG: Islamophobia is gaining ground in the Netherlands, with Muslim minorities facing rising violence and discrimination, a pan-European anti-racism commission said in a report released on Tuesday.

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) found Islamophobia in the country to have “increased dramatically” since 2000, reporting that Muslims were “disproportionately targeted” by security policies and were facing racist violence and discrimination.

The ECRI studies and makes recommendations on the problems of racism and intolerance in the 47 states of the Council of Europe.

Tensions have been fuelled by national and international events, such as 9/11 attacks in the United States and the murder of outspoken columnist and filmmaker Theo van Gogh by a radical Muslim in 2004, the report said.

“The tone of Dutch political and public debate around integration and other issues relevant to ethnic minorities has experienced a dramatic deterioration,” it said, warning of a “worrying polarisation between majority and minority communities”.

It found that the country’s Muslims – a community of one million people, or six percent of the population – had faced “stereotyping, stigmatising, outright racist political discourse and biased media portrayal”.

The Moroccan and Turkish communities were especially hard hit, it said. Community tensions had also led to a rise in anti-Semitism, the report found.

The report also found that anti-Semitic insults and expressions had “tended to become a feature of everyday life, reflecting in part a similar trend in Holocaust denial, notably among the younger generations”.

Insult: According to the report, the word “Jew” is increasingly used as an insult and different aspects of the Holocaust are reportedly questioned in everyday situations, including in schools.

The Dutch government, in an annex to the report, replied that it had adopted anti-racism legislation, opened anti-discrimination offices around the country and taken steps to fight discrimination in the job market.

But a Dutch minister said on Friday the government wanted schools, public bodies and public transport companies to forbid clothing that covers the face – although it would not explicitly ban the burqa.

European Union ministers and Dutch Muslim groups have also expressed serious concern about plans by far-right Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders to make a potentially inflammatory film about the Quran.

Wilders, who has been under round-the-clock protection since the filmmaker Van Gogh was murdered for making a film critical of Islam in 2004, said this weekend his film would be aired in March. afp

jewsign Netherlands will not accept "anti-Semitic" slurs

Published: Sunday 18 May 2008 15:34 UTC
Last updated: Sunday 18 May 2008 15:34 UTC


The Netherlands will not accept it if there are any attempts to call Israel a racist state at a UN conference in the South African city of Durban next year. Interior Minister Maxime Verhagen said this at a meeting at the Centre for Information and Documentation on Israel to mark the state's sixtieth anniversary.

The last conference in Durban in 2001 failed because a number of Arab countries wanted to label Israel a racist country. Israeli and Jewish organisations were excluded from preparatory meetings and anti-Semitic cartoons were circulated while other organisations failed to take any action to stop it.

Mr Verhagen said that the Netherlands was involved in the organisation of the new Durban conference and would not hesitate to withdraw if there is a similar negative spiral of events.

Exclamation

This thread should be renamed. Holland is, technically speaking, only a part of the Netherlands. It'd be like calling all of Germany “Bayern” or “Preußen.”

If only Dutch NS could gain power in their country so that they could, among other things, close down this expensive communist NWO monstrosity of a kangaroo 'court,' and release the Serb political prisoners.


Serb police general appeals 27-year sentence

13/05/2013

Jailed Serbian ex-police general Vlastimir Djordjevic on Monday appealed a 27-year-sentence before the Yugoslav war crimes court for his role in a 1999 plot to terrorise Albanian citizens in Kosovo.

"We assure (the court) that his liability has been overstated and that the sentence is too harsh," one of his lawyers Russell Hopkins told the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugslavia (ICTY).

The lawyer said Serbia's former public security head's conviction for crimes against humanity was circumstantial with no solid evidence to back the Hague-based tribunal's decision.

Djordjevic, 64, also a former assistant internal affairs minister was sentenced in February 2011 for aiding and abetting the murders of "not less than 724 Kosovo Albanians" between January and June 1999.

Considered a key aide to Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslav president who died in March 2006 while on trial before the same tribunal, Djordjevic is seen as the most senior official responsible for the expulsion of some 200,000 Albanians from Kosovo between January and June 1999.

Serbia lost control over its former southern province in June 1999 after a NATO bombing campaign halted late strongman Milosevic's crackdown against the pro-independence ethnic Albanian majority and ousted Serbian armed forces from Kosovo.

Prosecutors accused Djordjevic of taking part in a campaign of "ethnic cleansing" which saw Yugoslav and Serb forces expel one third of Albanians living in Kosovo, and sought a 35-year sentence against him.

He was arrested on June 17, 2007 in Montenegro and transferred to The Hague on the same day.

Djordjevic pleaded not guilty and told the court in January 2009 that the operations he oversaw were aimed against the "terrorists" of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

The court rejected this defence, saying "in the large majority of cases the victims, including women and children, were civilians who were unarmed and not in any way participating in any form of armed conflict".

But his lawyer on Monday contested the sentence, saying his client was "just another deputy minister" and that his conduct was "not criminal".

"Could he have done better? Probably. But has his conduct been so bad that it was criminal?" Hopkins asked the judges.

Prosecutors put their case on Monday afternoon and it could take several months still before judges make a ruling.

Srebrenica Muslims taking advantage of Dutch guilt over Europe's biggest hoax since the lolocaust

Questions persist over use of Dutch aid to Bosnia

Srebrenica’s mayor says corruption has taken much of €120m paid since massacre

There have been calls for an investigation into some €120 million in Dutch aid paid to rebuild the Bosnian mountain town of Srebrenica since the massacre there 18 years ago today, amid claims that large amounts of the money have gone missing due to widespread corruption.

Quote:
Now, however, mayor of Srebrenica Camil Durakovic has revealed that much of that money simply disappeared into the pockets of local gangsters – a contention apparently supported by documents from the Dutch embassy in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.

Mr Durakovic told the Dutch TV current affairs programme Brandpunt that while the ministry of foreign affairs had been “writing blank cheques”, very little of the Dutch taxpayers’ money had been used on the projects for which it was earmarked.

He claimed some of the money was wasted, some remained in the coffers of the plethora of aid agencies and NGOs still working around Srebrenica, while much of the rest had ended up in the bank accounts of criminals due to “huge corruption”.

jewsign Srebrenica hysteria in Holland reaches critical mass!

The Dutch are disgraceful, they are now going to put their own soldiers on trial in order to further appease muslim criminals. It seems that arresting and locking up innocent Serbs is not enough anymore and now 'ZOG Holland' is going after its very own people.

This propaganda piece is full of the usual muslim and jew media lies.

Relatives seek genocide charges against Srebrenica peacekeepers

Published on : 6 July 2010 - 10:08am | By Sebastiaan Gottlieb (RNW)

Three Dutch peacekeepers may face genocide charges in relation to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. Relatives of two men killed by Serbian forces at Srebrenica today filed a complaint with the Dutch prosecutor’s office charging three Dutchbat commanders with complicity in genocide, war crimes and murder.

Commander Thomas Karremans, Deputy Commander Rob Franken and personnel officer Berend Oosterveen, were in charge of the Dutch peacekeeping battalion in the United Nations protected area of Srebrenica during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. Up to 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed during a five day period after the UN peacekeepers handed them over to forces led by Serbian general Ratko Mladic.

Today’s complaint says the commanders knew that the deportation of Rizo Mustafic and Muhamed Nuhanovic from the base would ultimately lead to their death at the hand of the Serbian soldiers. Therefore, the complaint reads, “these actions can be qualified as genocide and/or war crimes, and/or murder.”

The Dutch prosecutor general will now review the complaint and decide whether or not to pursue an investigation into the charges.

Evidence

The remains of the father and brother of Hassan Nuhanovic were found in mass graves in 2007 and 2010. The body of Rizo Mustafic has never been recovered. Lawyer Liesbeth Zegveld argues that Franken and Karremans knew what was going to happen to the men when they were sent from the compound. She told Radio Netherlands Worldwide:

"There can be little doubt about it. At the time, they expressed their fear for the fate of the men on several occasions. These Dutch soldiers feared a mass execution."

It is now up to the Public Prosecutors in Arnhem to decide whether the three Dutchbat officers will stand trial. Ms Zegveld believes there is a good chance that the case will go to court:

"I expect that given the evidence available, the Public Prosecutions Service will see sufficient grounds to prosecute."


Life sentence

If the Public Prosecutor decides to go to court, it will be up to the judges to decide whether the three are guilty as charged. In that case, the maximum sentence they face is life imprisonment.

Dictatorial proposal in Holland - Public Prosecutor Hirsch Ballin demands power to close websites

The Hague - The Dutch Parliament is highly critical of a proposal for a new law, put forward by outgoing Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin (Christian Democrat), which would give Public Prosecutors or the District Attorney, whatever the term is, the power to remove information from internet sites on their own accord.

Thumbs down Dutch legislation to recognise lesbian parents

A soon-to-be introduced legislation will make it easier for lesbian couple to be recognised as a child’s parents.

13 August 2008

THE NETHERLANDS - Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin is introducing draft legislation which will make it easier for both members of a lesbian couple to be recognised as a child's parents.

Lesbian couples would no longer have to appear before a judge to gain such recognition.

As the law now stands, adoption procedures are used to regulate the situation of non-biological mothers within same-sex relationships. Hirsch Ballin says the interests of the child will be served by streamlining the law.

Marokkanen het meest racistisch:

http://forums.marokko.nl/showthread.php?t=2084055

bron:

http://www.depers.nl/buitenland/2243...prinkhaan.html

Quote:
Marokkanen zwerven de hele wereld over, maar het land worstelt zelf ook met immigranten. Zwarte Afrikanen in het land klagen over racisme.

‘Ze spugen op me en schelden me uit voor aazi (zwarte), Marokkanen zijn beesten, echt.’ Mariam Ciré Camara (24) uit Guinee studeert nu drie jaar rechten in Marokko. Maar ze wil niets liever dan terug naar huis. Naar huis in Conakry.

Nog niet zo lang geleden werd ze uitgescholden door een oudere vrouw in de bus. ‘Ze riep: wat doen jullie hier, ga terug naar je land, zwart stuk vuil! Ze ging maar door met schreeuwen. Ze had mijn grootmoeder kunnen zijn!’, vertelt Camara. Uit respect voor oude mensen schold ze niet terug. Zo is haar opvoeding, maar het maakte haar woedend.

Goede moslims

Racisme in Marokko: vraag een Marokkaan of hij of zij racist is en de meeste zullen het ten stelligste ontkennen. En toch hebben studenten uit Zwart Afrika, maar ook migranten en Marokkanen die een donkere huid hebben, er vaak last van. ‘Als iemand me uitmaakt voor khalaoui (zwarte), ziet diegene dat niet als een racistische opmerking, maar voor mij is het dat wel’, zegt Mamadou Saliou Bah (32) van de Marokkaanse vereniging GADEM, die strijdt tegen racisme.

Volgens hem zijn Marokkanen zich er niet altijd van bewust dat ze racistisch zijn, omdat ze er door niemand op worden gewezen. Binnen de islam zijn alle moslims gelijk aan elkaar. Ze behoren allemaal tot de oemma (gemeenschap), of ze nu zwart, wit of bruin zijn. Buitenlanders – de niet-moslims – dienen met gastvrijheid te worden ontvangen. Zeg je tegen een moslim dat hij racist is, dan zeg je in feite dat hij geen goede moslim is. ‘En dan ontploft hij’, roept Bah, zelf afkomstig uit Guinee.

Maar ook de geschiedenis van Marokko draagt bij aan het superioriteitsgevoel van sommige Marokkanen. Eeuwenlang waren zwarten de slaven van rijke Arabische koophandelaren en hun families. Nog steeds zijn het zwarte lakeien die bij het koninklijk paleis de wacht houden en de koninklijke familie bedienen.

Bah kwam in 1996 naar Marokko om te studeren en heeft een verschuiving gezien na de komst van tienduizenden zwarte Afrikaanse migranten die met bootjes of te voet proberen Spanje of de Canarische eilanden te bereiken. In 2005, tijdens het hoogtepunt van de bestormingen van de Spaanse enclaves Mellila en Ceuta in het noorden van Marokko, waarbij tientallen doden vielen, berichtten de Marokkaanse media over ‘etnische zuiveringen’, ‘het uitkammen van zwarten’ en kopte de lokale krant Achamal uit Tanger ‘zwarte sprinkhanen dringen Marokko binnen’.

Immigratieland

Marokko had opeens te maken met vluchtelingen. In plaats van een emigratieland werd Marokko een immigratieland. Op straat zag je steeds vaker zwarten bedelen om eten of geld. Bah: ‘Studenten vroegen mij plots: wat doen je broeders hier? Komen ze onze baantjes inpikken?’.

Toch woont hij, in tegenstelling tot landgenoot Camara, met veel plezier in Marokko. Hij heeft een eigen bedrijf in consultancy, leeft prima samen met zijn Marokkaanse buren en kent genoeg Marokkanen die niet racistisch zijn. Maar ook hij ziet dat als een zwarte een winkel binnenstapt de prijzen al snel verdubbelen.

De verkrachtingen gebeurden los van elkaar in nachten dat het warm was, de laatste keer enkele weken geleden. De schapen liepen door de penetratie verwondingen op en moesten door een dierenarts worden behandeld.

De koe bleef ongedeerd. De beheerder ontdekte de verkrachting van het rund de volgende dag omdat enkele kistjes in de stal waren opgestapeld als opstapje.

Van alle drie verkrachtingen is aangifte gedaan bij de politie. Die onderzocht de zaak, maar heeft nog geen daders aangehouden. ,,Maar de politie is dan ook erg afhankelijk van mensen die mogelijk iets gezien hebben,’’ zegt Van Hoef.

De daders zijn over de hekken geklommen om bij de dieren te komen. Na elke ontdekte verkrachting werden de dieren enige tijd op stal gehouden. Van Hoef: ,,Maar omdat het daar zo heet werd, was dat na enkele dagen al ondoenlijk.’’

Bosnia: Dutch offer Bosnians monthly repatriation benefits

ultimo aggiornamento: 05 gennaio, ore 17:46

The Netherlands has offered life benefits to Bosnians who settled in the country in the wake of the 1992-1995 war, if they decide to return home, Bosnian Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees said on Wednesday.

Sarajevo 5 Jan. (AKI) - The Netherlands has offered life benefits to Bosnians who settled in the country in the wake of the 1992-1995 war, if they decide to return home, Bosnian Ministry for Human Rghts and Refugees said on Wednesday.

The ministry said it was informed by Netherlands authorities that the Dutch government would pay travelling expenses to returnees of up to 1,500 euros and life benefits to persons over 45 years of age.


The monthly benefits for individuals would be 470 euros, or 670 euros per married couple, the ministry said.


It is estimated that some 30,000 Bosnians settled in the Netherlands after the war and many have failed to integrate into Dutch society.


The Dutch government said it was a “quality solution for all foreigners who have failed to integrate into Dutch society”.


The participants in the repatriation program would be allowed a one year trial period, after which they would have the right to return to the Netherlands. After that period, they would have to renounce Dutch citizenship and lose residential rights, the government said.


In view of Bosnia’s crippled economy, huge unemployment and average monthly wage below 300 euros, it is generally expected that the repatriation program would yield good results.

ZOG has always fed us the lie that these bosnian muslims are very pro western, not like those evil anti I$rael muslims in the ME, yet now we see that they also have 'integration issues', just like their turk and arab brothers.

Netherlands liable for Muslim deaths at Srebrenica: court

Agence France-Presse

Sep 6, 2013 .

THE HAGUE // The Dutch state is liable for the deaths of three Bosnian Muslims who were expelled from a UN compound at Srebrenica in 1995 and subsequently murdered, the supreme court ruled yesterday.

"The appeals court decision is upheld," Judge Floris Bakels said, ruling that it would be "unacceptable" for countries not to be able to judge their peacekeeping troops.

Relatives of the victims broke down in tears and hugged each other and their lawyers after the verdict.

The final ruling in the long-running case means that former UN interpreter Hasan Nuhanovic, whose father, mother and brother were killed by Bosnian Serb forces after Dutch peacekeepers expelled them from the UN base, can seek compensation from the Dutch state.

The ruling also applies to relatives of another worker on the base, electrician Rizo Mustafic, who was also killed after being sent to certain death at the hands of Bosnian Serb forces.

Mr Nuhanovic's mother, Nasiha, was killed although her death was not part of the current case, yeah because she wasn't killed by Serb soldiers who upon entering the town organized food and water for muslim civilians, also safe transportation for those who wanted to cross to muslim held areas. this is all documenetd in which the Dutch state argued that the peacekeeping troops were under UN responsibility.

But, said Mr Bakels, clearing the Dutch state of responsibility would mean that "justice would have almost no way to judge armed interventions."

"That would be unacceptable," he said.

The three men at the centre of the case were among almost 8,000 Muslim men and boys slaughtered by troops commanded by Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic, who brushed aside lightly armed Dutch peacekeepers and overran the supposedly safe enclave in July 1995, during Bosnia's three-year civil war.

Yesterday's hearing was the culmination of a case spanning a decade, lodged in 2003 by Mr Nuhanovic and Mustafic's relatives, who claim the three men, who all worked on the Dutch battalion (Dutchbat) base, could have been saved in what became Europe's worst massacre since the Second World War.

Rizo Mustafic's daughter, Alma, who lived through Srebrenica as a 14-year-old, said she was "very relieved" by the ruling.

"It's always very difficult to grieve, but I hope this decision will help us," Alma Mustafic said.

She told the court in January about the close relationship her father had with the Dutchbat soldiers stationed at Potocari.

But their short-lived relief turned into terror as they realised they were being escorted out of the base by armed Dutchbat soldiers, she said.

"I cannot describe the fear I felt as we walked out," she testified at the time.

Hasan Nuhanovic said after the ruling: "It's great, it's really great."

Default Sinterklaas at risk due to the presence Zwarte Piet

Is the arrival of Sinterklaas at risk? The appeal committee of the municipality of Amsterdam bends over two weeks during a public hearing on twenty objections received against the issuance of a permit for the event on 17 November. The criticism focuses on the presence of Zwarte Piet.

It is the first time that opposition to the invasion. Initiator of the action is Quinsy Gario artist and activist, who has several years agitates against the black servant. He mentions the presence of Zwarte Piet offensive and discriminatory, but also at odds with the note Outdoor Events, which decreed that events should contribute to the innovative and creative image of the capital.

Research
Gario refers to earlier this year outcomes of a public investigation into the perceptions of Black Peter. Although only seven percent of respondents from different ethnic groups indicated the appearance as to experience discriminatory said thirty percent to imagine that other people take offense at the phenomenon.

Last year, at the invitation of the Mayor Gario a conversation with the Committee. "I offered my help to achieve a change of attitude but it is not used. On the website of the entry is Zwarte Piet just another strong presence. "

Dialogue
On behalf of the organization shows Martine Willekens understand the objections. "The subject is also on our agenda and we are open to dialogue. We aim to organize all of Amsterdam. A fun, safe and happy kids That does not mean that it should always be done in this way. But we are not the owner of a national tradition. "

However, "It would be very unfortunate if the entry could not continue."
