By the way, excellent comment in aforementioned article by Simon Aerts (December 25, 2012 7:43 pm).


To Steve and Richard Sherman: I would like to ask them where they got their ridiculous idea that antisemitism has always been a foundation of Dutch culture. As far as I know the opposite has been the case for at least the past four hundred years. When the Jews where expelled from Portugal and Spain in the 16th and 17th century most of them eventually ended up in Amsterdam or somewhere else in the Netherlands. Why? Because the Netherlands where tolerant towards people from different faiths. Among Dutch Jews Amsterdam was even called Jerusalem of the West. Now I’m not claiming there was no antisemitism in the Netherlands at the time, antisemitism was widespread throughout Europe, but to say that antisemitism is a foundation of Dutch culture is just simply wrong. Have you forgotten what a staunch supporter the Netherlands have been to Israel; That my country is one of the few European nations still left that support Israel? Another minor point that I would like to make is that people who are critical of Israels policy’s are not antisemitic. I am saying that because it has recently come to my attention that in many cases anyone who publicly complains about Israels policy is castigated as a antisemite.
