Netherlands rally protesting Soleimani assassination sparks anti-Semitic sentiments – Europe

Contributors at a protest rally within the Netherlands towards the assassination of Iranian common Qassem Soleimani waved anti-Semitic posters, an area watchdog group instructed police.

On the demonstration Tuesday in entrance of the American Embassy in Wassenaar close to the Hague, two girls had been photographed holding up a poster titled “the makers of terrorism,” which featured a caricature of two males, one carrying an American flag and one other dressed as a haredi Orthodox Jew, standing on the shoulders of a scarecrow labeled “terrorism.”


The ladies had been carrying black head coverings favored by observant Muslim girls.

The Heart for Data and Documentation on Israel, or CIDI, wrote in assertion that it contacted police and can file a legal criticism over incitement to racist hatred. In talks in regards to the incident, police officers instructed CIDI that officers on the scene didn’t spot the poster or would have intervened to have it eliminated instantly, CIDI wrote.

“CIDI is shocked that such an anti-Semitic caricature is overtly displayed,” the assertion mentioned.


America on January three in an airstrike killed Soleimani, a frontrunner of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and head of its Quds Drive, which was accountable for particular operations outdoors Iran.
