Muslims riot in Dutch Jewish Quarter. Rabbi Seeks “Interfaith Dialogue”

Netherlands: Muslims riot, chant against “Jewish murderers”

“…when the calm returns, it is time to take these young men by the hand and show them their own Schilderswijk’s history.”–Lody van Der Kamp, a Dutch rabbi who dabbles in “interfaith dialogue”.

.
Dutch-RiotsYou will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers to be the Jews…” — Qur’an 5:82

In practice, that verse usually works out in the opposite way: Muslims are the most intense of the people in animosity toward the Jews.

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — Dozens of people chanted anti-Semitic slogans during riots that broke out in a predominantly-Muslim neighborhood of The Hague over the slaying of a suspect by police.

More than 100 people chanted about “Jewish murderers” on Thursday night in the Schilderswijk, a neighborhood where a handful of Jews live in a Jewish-owned enclave surrounded by project apartments populated by low-income families, according to a report on the The Post Online.

The riots took place at a theater stormed by protesters approximately a mile away from the enclave, the De Telegraaf daily reported.

More than 200 people were arrested since protests broke out in the Schilderswijk over the death of Mitch Henriquez, an Aruban citizen, at the hands of police officers who suffocated him during his arrest at a park.

The Schilderswijk has one of the highest crime rates in the Netherlands. Last year, the neighborhood saw riots that broke out on the margins of rallies in support of the ISIS terror group and featured its flags. Protesters hurled stones at riot police during an anti-ISIS march last year. During Israel’s war in Gaza, at least two demonstrations in Schilderswijk against Israel featured calls to slaughter the Jews.

The Jewish-owned enclave was purchased in the 19th century by the Jewish community to accommodate impoverished Jews fleeing pogroms in Eastern Europe. But the Jewish population of The Hague was almost totally annihilated during the Holocaust. The area around it became populated by families of migrant workers in the 1960s and 1970s. The city is now believed to have a few hundred Jews.

Lody van Der Kamp, a Dutch rabbi who has spoken out on the need to facilitate dialog between Muslims and Jews, wrote in an op-ed for the Joodse Omroep Jewish broadcaster Thursday that “when the calm returns, it is time to take these young men by the hand and show them their own Schilderswijk’s history.”

Yes, that will fix things right up.

  1. Hello there…..its me again……..Don Laird……

    I was thinking……….

    I was thinking of us…….

    I was thinking of them…………

    Us and the Muslim that is……….

    I was thinking of those two solitudes and that vast, unnavigable, uncrossable abyss that separates us from them……..

    I was thinking of all that we are………

    I was thinking of all that they are……..

    I was thinking of all that we are that they are not……

    I was thinking of all that they are that we are not………

    I was thinking of how that difference, that vast uncrossable gulf that separates us from them, is our saving grace and their eternal damnation……

    Of our differences in spirit, differences in humanity, differences in life, all life, differences in depth of character, differences in grace………all those differences…….differences that fill that uncrossable abyss that will, forever and forever, separate us from them………..

    Theirs is a world of misery, a world of pain, a world of fear, a world of intimidation and love of death wherein pleasure is wrought from the crushing of the human spirit, wrought from the predation of the weakest amongst them, wrought from the destruction of the defenseless, wrought from the enslavement of the souls very spirit, the souls very essence, crushing and extinguishing every fragment of hope and light……a world of darkness and misery………it is this world that has kept them standing outside our doors, unwanted, unwelcome and uninvited……..standing there in that blackest of misery, listening to our laughter, listening to education, listening to the quest for knowledge, listening to emancipation, listening to love of life and to love of Humanity,……..simply standing there……..as the Universe and all it wonders passes them by………

    We here in the West have much to answer for, we have much searching of our own souls to do……but in the history of Mankind, in the history of Humanity, we are the greatest success story to grace this planet, to grace this dark little corner of Creation………so successful are we that together, men and women, proud of our laurels but aware of our obligations and challenged by the same, we now stand on our tiptoes and reach our fingertips into the blackness of space in order that we give answer to those age old questions; Who are we?……..Where did we come from?……Where are we going?……Why?……….and in the course of answering those questions to…..as the poet said…….”To slip the surly bonds of earth, to dance on laughter silvered wings and to touch the face of God”

    How small we are……..oh but how grand we are……..oh but how magnificent we are!!!

    I am reminded of two men tonight.

    One is the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and of all his works the words of “Ulysses” quietly echo……..some of those words are below.

    Another man is Burt Munro. Burt was a proud New Zealander who, indomitable and swerving, set a world speed record astride his beloved Indian motorcycle at the Bonneville Salt flats on August 26, 1967.

    Burt Munro’s record and quest for the same was put to the silver screen in the movie “The World’s Fastest Indian”

    I close with a few fragments of Tennyson’s “Ulysses”……..an echo that crosses the abyss that separates Us from Them…….

    …………….”For always roaming with a hungry heart
    Much have I seen and known; cities of men
    And manners, climates, councils, governments,
    Myself not least, but honour’d of them all;
    And drunk delight of battle with my peers,
    Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy.
    I am a part of all that I have met;
    Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’
    Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fades
    For ever and forever when I move.
    How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
    To rust unburnish’d, not to shine in use!
    As tho’ to breathe were life! Life piled on life
    ………….Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield”………..

    -Ulysses
    -Alfred Lord Tennyson
    -Poet Laureate, Victorian England

    To our success; something worth fighting for, something worth dying for.

    Food for thought.

    Catalyst for action.

  2. Not sure about the ‘Dutch Jewish Quarter’ in headline.

    at the link:
    Dozens of people chanted anti-Semitic slogans during riots that broke out in a predominantly-Muslim neighborhood of The Hague over the slaying of a suspect by police.

    And…the suspect was NOT muzlim.
    hmmmmmmmm

    1. Yes, you are right. It was a troublemaker from the Antilles, and the Muslims used his death to attack the few Jews nearby. Sometimes its not easy to fit it all correctly in one headline.

  3. ISLAM CAN NEVER CO EXIST WITH OTHER FAITHS……THE PRIME DIRECTIVE OF ISLAM IS TO SUBJUGATE THE REST OF THE WORLD TO ISLAM AND SHARIAH.

    UNINFORMED PEOPLE THINK THAT IF YOU LEAVE ISLAM ALONE , ISLAM WON’T BOTHER YOU……HOW WRONG. ISLAM IS VERY INTERESTED IN YOU THE INFIDEL

    70% PLUS OF ISLAM’S SACRED TEXT IS ABOUT HOW TO FIGHT AND ANNIHILATE EHT KUFFARS /INFIDELS . Muslims in the west fool gullible , clueless christians and jews and
    other religion to engage in interfaith dialogue with them while at the same time their co religionists are buning churches, synagogues and temples in muslim majority country.

    In muslim majority countries there are no interaith dialogue , on the contrary all other faiths are insulted and subdued and eventually annihilated.

    Have you all noticed that in muslim majority countries they never talk about co-existence. Even in so call ‘moderate’ muslim country like malaysia which is a posterboy of so called successful muslim country ( LOL ), muslim supremacists insult all other faiths all the time. They demand that buddhists and hindus built their worship places in islamic style so as to blend in. They want hindus , buddhists and catholics not to build large statues so as not to offend islam, they dont want christians to have crosses on the outside , because they are like vampires and they will shrivel up at the sight of a cross or cruciifix LOL.
    Interfaith dialogue only happens in infidel countries where you have lots of clueless goody 2 shoe christians and self loathing jews who wanna win over mohamad and coexist happily with him While the muslims in the west are pretending to have iftaar dinner with the gullible christians, jews and other mindless morons and useful idiots , their co-religionists in muslim majority countries are busy burning churches, temples, syagogues, gurudwaras, beheading pagans .
    Here is something THAT EVERYONE CAN DO TO EXPOSE ISLAM IN THE WEST !
    HOW ABOUT WRITING LETTERS TO THE EDITORS OF LOCAL NEWSPAPER PERIODICALLY EXPOSING ISLAM. YOU CAN USE THE information in the following 2 links. I am sure the author of the 2 pieces of information do not mind our sharing it with the public, or at the very least you can cite the source to give them credit at the end of your article. Most newspaper will have to print your article unless they are complying with shariah .
    http://www.tawfikhamid.com/abcs-test-for-radical-islam/ —- in yr letter ask your local mosque ,Islamic Shool, and Islamic organization to clearly, unambiguously and publically denounce the following concepts:
    Apostates killing
    Beating women and stoning women to death for adultery
    Calling Jews pigs and monkeys.
    Declaring war on Non Muslims to spread Islam after offering Non Muslims three options – subjugate to Islam, pay Jizia (a humiliating tax), or be killed.
    Enslavement of Other Human Beings.
    Fighting and killing Jews before the “End of Days”.
    Gay killing.
    http://qsociety.org.au/opposing_islam.htm
    Why We Oppose Islam
    Islam tells Muslims not to integrate into non-Islamic countries
    Islamic culture is forced on the host nation
    Islam demands that Muslims obey and implement sharia law
    Sharia law includes:
    Polygamy, with up to fou r wives and an unlimited number of concubines;
    Child marriage, as Mohammed (the ‘perfect example’ of mankind) married a 6 year old;
    Slavery, as agreed by all four schools of Sunni jurisprudence;
    Killing of those who leave Islam, adulterers, blasphemers, critics of Islam and homosexuals;
    Women and non-Muslims being second-class citizens and men can legally beat their wives;
    Parents going unpunished if they kill their children, making ‘honour killing’ legal;
    Punishments such as beheading, whipping, stoning, cutting off hands and throwing off buildings;
    The imposition of a humiliating tax on all non-Muslims to support the Islamic ruling class; and
    enforcement of Sharia being a right of each Muslim, encouraging vigilante street ‘justice’.
    PLS MAKE THIS IDEA GO VIRAL….EVERYBODY SHOULD DO SOMETHING, IF EVERYONE DOES A LITTLE BIT, THEN TOGETHER BY THE BILLIONS AND OVER A SHORT TIME especially thro the power of exponential growth via the internet we will succeed in defeating islam. The age of the internet and the age of information exchange will be the death knell of this hideous excuse for a religion !
