Anti-dhimmitude from the Dutch government. Now if only the rest of the Western powers would end the jizya payments, we might be getting somewhere.
Note also that May 5 is the anniversary of the liberation of the Dutch from Nazi occupation, and that is the date set for the “conference on the Palestinians and Europe in Rotterdam.” Gee, I wonder why?
From Ynet News, with thanks to Ruben:
The Dutch government on Monday ruled out a visit by Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, saying he will not get a visa because the European Union considers his Hamas party a terrorist group.
Haniyeh’s office contacted the Dutch government to enquire about documents needed to request a visa as the Palestinian premier wanted to attend a conference on the Palestinians and Europe in Rotterdam on May 5, a spokesman for the Dutch Foreign Ministry said.
“He will not be granted a visa, should he request one officially,” the spokesman said. “Hamas is considered a terrorist organisation by the European Union.”
“It is consistent not only to avoid contact with Hamas ministers but also not to let them come to the Netherlands or anywhere else in Europe and spread the message of Hamas,” he added.
