Muslims Planning ‘Shadow Holocaust’ Event on Dutch Memorial Day

A Dutch Muslim group is planning to commemorate “the ethnic cleansing of Palestine” on Holland’s memorial day for victims of Nazism.

The Platform Bewust Muslim group is planning to hold the ceremony on Sunday at a mosque in Hilversum, near Amsterdam, under the banner “Palestine, the Shadow Holocaust,” the Jewish television channel Joods Omroep reported Monday on its website.

The event was advertised as a symposium offering “a review of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the passive attitude of the international community.”

May 4 is the Netherlands’ official day for Remembrance of the Dead, when commemorations are held for Dutch civilians and members of the armed forces killed by enemy forces in terrorist attacks or in combat. Many of the events are designed to commemorate victims of Nazism, often with an emphasis on Holocaust victims.

Hilversum has received 45 objections urging that the municipality prevent or postpone the event, Joods Omroep reported. Some complaints also were made to the Center for Information and Documentation on Israel, or CIDI, a watchdog group based in The Hague.

Hilversum Mayor Pieter Broertjes told the Joods Omroep that he is discussing the relevant issues with organizers, “including the possibility of postponement.”

One of the complainants is Jack Justus, who was among the leaders of a campaign that ended with the issuing of an injunction in 2012 banning the town of Vorden from advancing plans to memorialize German soldiers on May 4 along with their victims. Memorial organizers had said it was a gesture meant to promote world peace and reconciliation.

But “the Hilversum commemoration tops it all,” Justus told the Joods Omroep. “It’s an enormous insult to victims, survivors and their descendants.”

Separately, Landerd canceled plans to unveil a memorial plaque on Sunday for a German pilot who was shot down over the eastern Dutch town during World War II, the Omroep Brabant reported Monday. The cancellation followed a complaint by Justus and Federative Jewish Netherlands, the Jewish group that had obtained the injunction in 2012.

  1. Palestine was a Jewish region named by the Romans at around 100CE.500 years before Muhammad burst forth from his pagan mother. It was renamed following a failed Jewish uprising. The Jewish People are the original Palestinians, not these Arab, Muslim slobs.

  2. Eduardo Mazo says:

    preserved holocaust for remembrance.

  3. Palestunians can always go to syria.

  4. There were 60,000 Jews living in the old Palestine in 1900 so why the BS from these anuses?

  5. these people are so busy believing the palliwoood propaganda it is shameful

  6. Just how many “Palestinians” have been systematically executed in …anywhere? Holocaust does not mean, “I’m not getting what I want today.”

  7. Gary Gien says:

    So the Dutch should stock up on ammo and pepper spray and no holding back open fire on those religion of pee

  8. Ethnic cleansing?
    Islam cleansing the Jews from Arab lands.
    Stupid Europeans are deaf and blind to believe this crap.

  9. Mandy Jacobs says:

    These people are so uneducated they should go to school and take up history .
    1. King David named Jerusalem the Capital of Israel
    ( Judeh and Cannon semeriah)
    1600 years before the Profit
    Mohamed was even born .
    2. The word Palistian came from the word Philisstian
    Like Goliath was a Philistian
    .3 Yasah Arafat was not born in
    That area at all his Parents and himself were born in Eygpt
    In Ciaro .
    4 Majority of what you call Palastinans there ancestors
    We’re born in Syria , Eygpt , Iran , Irak and in the Mecca area and surrounding Arabic
    Countries .
    5 . In the Qaran it dosent mention one word about
    Palistian in any way shape or Form .
    6 . Every Muslium in the world
    When they Pray they face Mecca not Jerusalem where as every Jew faces Jerusalem
    Every church in the world
    There Altars face Jerusalem
    Not Mecca!!!!
    7. Where the Lexor mosque
    Is Built in Jerusalem
    It’s called The Temple Mount
    The reason why it called the Temple Mount this is where
    The Torah , the 10 commandment was put inside that Temple . This is where Jesus Christ went to the Temple to Pray as a Rabbie
    Untill not once but twice
    The Romans the Philisoans
    And everyone else including the Philistians destroyed it and
    Built a mosque on top of the Temple . The Isralits were not the invaders . The Invaders
    We’re everyone else including
    What you call today Palistians …. I could go on all day

    Invaders of Israel the Palatians
