WILDERS IN SPAT WITH DUTCH COM­MU­NITY

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

THE NAME of right-wing Dutch politi­cian Geert Wilders has been re­moved from a full­page ad­ver­tise­ment de­cry­ing a rise in an­ti­semitism in Hol­land. The ad, which con­tained a pe­ti­tion signed by var­i­ous Dutch Jewish lead­ers, ran last Thurs­day in the news­pa­per with the slo­gan “Crit­i­cism of Is­rael? Okay. Jew-ha­tred? No!” The pe­ti­tion’s or­gan­is­ers, Cen­tre for In­for­ma­tion and Doc­u­men­ta­tion on Is­rael, re­moved Mr Wilders’s name af­ter the pop­ulist politi­cian crit­i­cised Dutch Jewish groups for fail­ing to men­tion the grow­ing Mus­lim com­mu­nity in Hol­land as a key rea­son for ris­ing Jew-hate.
