Anti-Semitism in Holland

In Rotterdam today, thousands of people celebrated the liberation of their country from the Nazis by demonstrating against Israel and drawing supposed parallels between the Nazi occupation of Holland and Israel's administration of Judea and Samaria:
Keynote speaker former Dutch prime minister Dries Van Agt addressed the protestors and voiced his regret over Holland's "biased" pro-Israeli stance and boycott of the Hamas.

PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who was denied entry to Belgium and Holland, addressed protestors on a TV screen via a satellite connection.

Another Hamas representative, PA Sports Minister Basem Naim, cancelled his participation after he was not allowed to disembark at Brussels' international airport.

"The European and Dutch boycott of Hamas is wrong and even stupid," Van Agt said. "We automatically pardon the occupier and sanction the occupied nation."
And who is Dries Van Agt you may ask?
Andreas Antonius Maria "Dries" van Agt (born February 2, 1931) is a Dutch politician and served as Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 1977 to 1982. During these years he was also leader of the Christian Democratic Appeal party.

He is currently Prime Counsellor for the International Forum for Justice and Peace, a foundation under Dutch law, registered at the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Chaired by retired international businessman Ben Smoes, they are currently focused on justice and peace in regards to the Israel/Palestine conflict.
For the record, the only 'injustice' about which this organization is concerned is the 'Palestinians.' This guy sounds like the Dutch Dhimmi Carter. Don't retired politicians have anything better to do with their time?

Not all criticism of Israel and its policies is anti-Semitic.
By simple tagging it as such, you loose the option of discourse.
