In the latest outrage against Israel, the Dutch Prime Minister’s Office issued a travel warning to its citizens to beware of rock-throwing Israelis in Judea and Samaria.
The Dutch government has issued a travel advisory to its nationals touring Israel to beware of Israeli “settlers” who throw “stones at foreigners and Palestinians.”
In a seemingly anti-Semitic post, the official website of the Prime Minister of Holland has recommend that Dutch citizens exercise caution in the vicinity of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, alleging that residents of Israeli towns in the area “throw rocks at Palestinian and international vehicles,” Israel’s Ynet reports.
The travel warning, which lists the dangers of traveling within the region, claims that “Jewish settlers live in illegal settlements in the West Bank. These settlers regularly organize demonstrations on and around the roads. These demonstrations are sometimes violent. It happens that settlers throw stones at Palestinian and international vehicles.”
The violent protests occur, the warning continues, because “Jewish settlers continue to build homes and villages in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, thus there are continuing protests and tensions have risen in Jerusalem.” Certain areas in Judea and Samaria are listed as “zones of settler hostility.”
Alleged Israeli Threat in Gaza
Regarding Gaza, the site warns of an unstable security situation in addition to the “ongoing risk of becoming a victim of an Israeli airstrike.”
Israel has reacted furiously to what it calls “slander”, adding that it will take the matter further.
The Israeli embassy in Holland said in response: “It is unacceptable to slander the name of a whole community. We will make our objections known to high level officials in Holland.”
The Dutch have recently been entangled in several anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incidents.
A Jewish student in Holland discovered that official Dutch textbooks say that Israel committed war crimes and that its leaders are terrorists.
In another provocative decision, the government had decided to cut by 35 percent the pension of a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor for living in an Israeli community in Judea and Samaria. The decision generated a public outcry and was reversed.
