Pro-Hamas Conference in Netherlands Could Encourage Antisemitism and Terrorism

The mayor of the second-largest city in the Netherlands is refusing to block a conference by a pro-Hamas group, despite warnings from Dutch Jewish leaders and political figures that the event could encourage antisemitism and embolden terrorists.

The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), which is regarded by the Israeli and German governments as a support group for Hamas, plans to hold its annual “Palestinians in Europe” conference on April 15 in Rotterdam.

Netherlands Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs told JNS.org that he is “very concerned” that the conference “will incite antsemitism or pro-terrorist sentiment” in the country, particularly among the country’s rapidly growing community of ethnic Turks. Jacobs said that the PRC’s activities are “just like the ‘Denk’ party, whose three seats in the new parliament look small, but is the beginning, God forbid, of a direction which we don’t want to go.” The Denk party, which chiefly represents Dutch citizens of Turkish origin, is harshly anti-Israel.
