Jihad on the rise in Holland. From Expatica, :
AMSTERDAM — The Netherlands is facing a far larger and more organised threat from Islamic terrorists than previously thought, it was reported Tuesday. One source said the Dutch authorities are conducting at least 15 investigations into planned attacks.
A day after news broke on Monday that Dutch police investigating Islamic terrorism had arrested four people in July, newspaper Algemeen Dagblad (AD) said more terrorist suspects had been arrested than previously revealed.
One of the investigations is focusing on suspects who were allegedly planning a bomb attack on a hotel and another involved a planned attack against prominent Dutch politicians.
The Netherlands gave “political, but not military” support to the US-led war against Iraq last year and there are currently some 1,300 Dutch peacekeeping troops in Iraq. It is also involved in peacekeeping duties in Afghanistan and is regarded as a firm ally of the US.
Some 29 “serious” tips over possible terrorist operations in the Netherlands have been received so far this year by the anonymous tip line, Meld Misdaad Anoniem, which was set up by the Justice and Interior ministries. The Dutch intelligence service AIVD is investigating most of the tips.
