A Muslim city councilman in The Hague called a visiting delegation of Israeli high school students “future Zionist terrorists, occupiers and those who murder children.”

Abdoe Khoulani tore into the 28-member group of 16-year-olds during their visit to the Dutch Parliament, according to a report by Yediot Ahronot.

The students were from the Hen School for Young Ambassadors and were present in the country as guests of Kees van der Staaij, a Dutch lawmaker from the SGP Party.

Needless to say, Israeli Ambassador to Netherlands, Aviv Shir-On, fired off a letter of protest to Pauline Krikke, Mayor of The Hague, in response to the vicious attack.

“The 16-year-old Israelis came to Holland in order to promote friendly relations between the countries, to meet with Dutch youth and conduct dialogue and form friendly relations,” Shir-On wrote.

“To call them murderers and claim they have Palestinian blood on their hands just because they are Israeli is not just a scandal, it is absolutely unacceptable. These words are nothing but anti-Israel incitement that can lead to violence that we have unfortunately seen in Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester and London.”

The CIDI Dutch anti-Semitism monitoring NGO is looking into the feasibility of filing a legal complaint against the city councilman in response to his attack.
