Islamophobic violence in the Netherlands

This video says about itself:

1 January 2015

A mosque was the target of a Molotov cocktail and graffiti attack in Uppsala on Thursday, in what is the third assault on a Muslim place of worship in Sweden in one week.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Hotline registers increasing violence against Muslims

Today, 17:46

The Islamophobia hotline registered in three days thirty reports of Muslims being attacked, threatened or insulted. The number is rising rapidly. The hotline has three days ago opened a Facebook page for Muslims to provide an outlet and to record what is happening.

Most reports are about insults and intimidation. Beer is said to have been thrown at a woman with a headscarf. The owner of an Islamic clothing store in The Hague says that she received death threats.


The hotline calls on people to report all these cases to the police. Muslims are generally reluctant in that.

Actor Ahmed Akkabi twitters that his sister has been threatened with death and then was stalked. “I’m furious,” he writes. She works in an Islamic clothing shop in The Hague.

The hotline calls on the police to register reports of Islamophobia separately. That does not happen now. The National Police has therefore no idea about numbers. Although the police are planning to start soon with the registration of such incidents and declarations.
