Jews and Muslims marching together against aggression

Today, 15:50

About 200 people this afternoon are walking from the synagogue on the Jonas Daniel Meijer Square in Amsterdam to the Weesperzijde mosque. The organizers of the solidarity walk oppose aggression against places of worship and are against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.

Other religious and non-religious parties also have rallied behind the initiative.

In the rally Jews, Muslims and other Amsterdam people participate. Both at the mosque and at the synagogue speeches will be held and flowers will be laid.

Muslims call for charges against advocates of arson

Today, 15:15

Several Muslim organizations in the Netherlands will start court cases against calls on Facebook to set mosques on fire. The organizations call on houses of worship to do the same.

The Facebook page Support the PVV [Geert Wildersxenophobic party] this week included a message about arson in Swedish mosques and calls to do the same in the Netherlands. The message and the reactions to it have been removed by now.

Dutch politician Wilders charged for racism

This is a poster from the Netherlands about the cooperation in European politics between Dutch xenophobic politician Geert Wilders and his extreme Right French colleague Marine Le Pen.

On the left in the poster, Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder, honourary president, father of his daughter Marine whom he appointed as successor, European parliament member of the National Front party is quoted: “The holocaust is a detail in history“.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Racist politician Wilders will be charged

Thursday 18th December 2014

RACIST Dutch politician Geert Wilders will be prosecuted for discrimination and inciting hatred against Moroccans during March election campaigning, prosecutors said today.

The charges stem from an incident in The Hague, when Mr Wilders led a nationally broadcast anti-Moroccan chant in a cafe prompting 6,400 complaints to the police.

Mr Wilders asked supporters if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in their city, triggering the chant: “Fewer, fewer, fewer.” A smiling Mr Wilders responded: “We’ll take care of that.”

In a later TV interview, he referred to “Moroccan scum.”

The prosecutors said yesterday that Mr Wilders, whose Party for Freedom (PVV) tops the opinion polls in the Netherlands, will face charges of “insulting a specific group based on race and inciting discrimination and hatred.”

Politicians may go far in their comments under the right to free speech, the prosecutors warned, but “that freedom is limited by the prohibition of discrimination.”

The furore led to senior members of Mr Wilders’s Party for Freedom resigning, but the arrogant racist appeared unrepentant yesterday, insisting that he had only spoken the truth.

“It is a travesty that I have to defend myself in court for this. I said what millions of people think and believe,” he claimed.

“The public prosecutors should be going after jihadis instead of me.

“The PVV is the largest party in the polls and the elite apparently doesn’t like it.”

Prosecutors had initially appeared reluctant to press charges after losing a similar trial against Mr Wilders in 2007.

But legal experts have argued they have a stronger case this time around because he specifically targeted Moroccans, rather than the religion of Islam.

Wilders addresses French National Front congress


Dutch poster about Le Pen and Wilders

This is a poster from the Netherlands about the cooperation in the 2014 European election campaign between Dutch xenophobic politician Geert Wilders and his extreme Right French colleague Marine Le Pen.

Dutch NOS TV reports today that Geert Wilders, leader (and only member) of the xenophobic Dutch PVV party, will today address the congress of the French neo-fascist National Front party in Lyon.

Other speakers at that congress will include party leader Marine Le Pen.

And Marine’s father, party founder, honorary president and member of the European Parliament, Jean-Marie Le Pen. Mr Le Pen has been repeatedly convicted for anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.

Until recently, Wilders used to say that he did not want to cooperate with anti-Semitic parties like the National Front and Vlaams Belang in Belgium, as he loved the Israeli government so much. Then, Wilders did an U-turn on that in this year’s European elections campaign.

This week, the PVV announced it wanted to close down all mosques in the Netherlands.

Geert Wilders wants mandatory blackface at Dutch festival


This video, by the Daily Telegraph in England, recorded in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, says about itself:

17 November 2013

Sinterklaas, the Dutch version of Father Christmas and his blacked-up helpers Zwarte Pieten, or Black Peters, arrive in Amsterdam amid protests claiming the tradition is racist.

Sinterklaas is not really ‘the Dutch version of Father Christmas’. The festival is on 6 December (and mainly on 5 December, the evening before 5 December), remembering the Christian Saint Nicholas, a fourth-century bishop in what is today Turkey. Father Christmas, or Santa Claus, was derived from Sinterklaas later in the USA, and connected to Christmas, not 5 or 6 December.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

The PVV

Geert Wilders‘ xenophobic party in the Netherlands

will propose a bill which will protect Zwarte Piet.

Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) is a blackface character in the Dutch Saint Nicholas festival, supposed to be the servant of the saintly bishop. Zwarte Piet was added to the festival in the nineteenth century, when there still was slavery in the Dutch colonies. He is depicted as a caricature of nineteenth century house slaves, in servant’s uniform, with big red lips and golden earrings, speaking with a supposedly Surinamese accent.

The new law would require municipalities to keep Zwarte Piet black[face] at the festivities. There would also be a ban on modifying Saint Nicholas songs.

About 1960, a child opened a book of “traditional” Saint Nicholas songs.

One song in that book was Sinterklaas, die goede heer (Saint Nicholas, that good gentleman).

One song line in that song went: “Servant Piet, as black as soot, with a chain around his foot …”

The chain was also depicted in the picture on the same page.

“Mummy, why does Piet have a chain around his foot?”

“Because he is a slave, my child!”

UPDATE: Today, in 2014, that song is still on the Internet, including the “chain” line.

If Wilders wants to ban changing songs’ lyrics, then he will have very much work to do. Throughout history, old songs have been adapted with new lyrics. Protestant churches in the Netherlands and elsewhere have changed the lyrrics of their hymns and psalms frequently. Does Wilders want to jail the Protestant dignitaries responsible for that? He can’t jail all of them, as most are already dead. The Belgian national anthem’s lyrics have changed many times.

Let us take the Dutch national anthem, the Wilhelmus. Its original lyrics were in French. It was a satirical song by Roman Catholic Spanish soldiers mocking their Protestant enemies in 1568, as the Dutch revolt against the king of Spain started. If Wilders hates changing lyrics so much, then he may want to change the Wilhelmus back to its original anti-Protestant lyrics again.

This music video is called “O la folle entreprise du Prince de Condé“, song from about 1568. It is the original version of the Dutch national anthem, in French, by Spanish soldiers mocking their Protestant enemies.

Geert Wilders said in the television program Vandaag de Dag by WNL that he “wants to protect our culture.”

Nigel Farage says that white people who ‘black up’ their faces should not be seen as offensive and that this business of political correctness has “gone too far”: here.

Anne Frank Foundation on Wilders’ cooperation with Dutch nazis


Paul Peters' vandalism at Oosterhout Jewish cemetery

Translated from Radio 1 in the Netherlands (where there is an audio file as well) today:

Wilders does not know what company he keeps’

Willem Wagenaar, researcher of the extreme right at the Anne Frank Foundation is amazed about the call of Geert Wilders to support the [officially] anti-ISIS [in practice, anti-immigrant] demonstration in The Hague. …

The anti-ISIS demonstration, announced in the Schilderswijk in The Hague, is organized by Pro Patria, a pseudonym of Identitary Resistance. The leader of the movement, Paul Peters, has been convicted in the past for vandalizing and defacing a Jewish cemetery. … “The extreme right not only hates Muslims, but also Jews. These people should not be Wilders’ friends.”

Geert Wilders joins Dutch Hitler fans in anti-immigrant march


This 1942 video is about Heinrich Himmler, leader of the German nazi SS, visiting the headquarters of the Dutch nazi party NSB.

The Dutch extreme right organisation Pro Patria marched on 10 August 2014 to the Schilderswijk, a neighbourhood in The Hague where many immigrants live. The aim of that march was to provoke fights.

On 20 September, they intend to march there again.

According to the Facebook page of the Dutch Nederlandse Volksunie (NVU) nazis, the boss of Pro Patria is Paul Peters. Peters used to be an NVU member. However, then he vandalized a Jewish cemetery in Oosterhout, smashing some tombstones and daubing swastikas and nazi slogans like Juden raus (Jews out) and Wir sind zuruck (We [nazis] are back) on others.

Paul Peters' vandalism at Oosterhout Jewish cemetery

The NVU thought these crimes were bad publicity, and expelled Peters. However, that conflict now seems to be over, as the NVU participated in the Pro Patria march and praised it. They say they will be at the 20 September march as well.

NVU member Johnboy Willemse on the left of the banner at the 10 August march

Geert Wilders, of the Dutch xenophobic party PVV, unlike the NVU, did not participate in the 10 August march. However, he has announced he does want to participate on 20 September.

When Wilders started the PVV, he claimed he did not want to cooperate with anti-Semitic parties, like Vlaams Belang in Belgium and Le Pen’s National Front in France. However, this year he did start to cooperate with these parties. Now, not even cooperation with Dutch open nazis (who had already shown up with nazi flags and Hitler salutes at a PVV rally) seems to be a problem for Wilders any more.

Paul Peters’ screen name on the Stormfront nazi Internet forum is ‘Dux Bellorum’, leader of wars.

The official aim of Peters’ Pro Patria marches is opposition to the ISIS terrorists in Iraq. The Nederlandse Volksunie advocates all out NATO war in Iraq with ISIS as a pretext. However, most neonazis in the Netherlands are too stupid to know where Iraq is. The Pro Patria marches are pretexts for beating up bystanders whose complexion the violent extreme Right does not like.
