Amsterdam woman beaten over Israeli flag
by Maxime Zech
In Amsterdam, the Gaza conflict is spilling over into Dutch territory. In a case that has received politicians' attention, police are investigating the assault of a Jewish woman, Seraphina Verhofstadt-Makker, from the Dapperbuurt area in the city. She says that she was assaulted by men because she hung her Israel flag from her balcony, Het Parool reports.
Verhofstadt writes on Facebook that three men wearing Palestine scarves beat her violently. "I got stomped in my stomach and face and was then strangled. They had a sort of fire torch with them that they threw at me."
According to Verhofstadt, there is a possibility that the men will come back. She says the police are protecting her. The police say that Verhofstadt sprayed a red paint on the men to protect herself, which they may still be covered with.
