R'dam politico wants ad against 'Islamophobia'
by Maxime Zech
The leader of the Socialist Party in Rotterdam, Leo de Kleijn, wants the same treatment that has been given to anti-Semitism to go towards fighting 'Islamophobia'. On De Kleijn's Facebook page, he references De Telegraaf's issue from last Thursday in which well-known Dutch figures signed an advertisement pleading for anti-Semitism in The Netherlands to come to an end, the Algemeen Dagblad reports.
"High time… Which well-known Dutch person takes the lead?", De Kleijn asks on the social media site. The SP-leader argues that Islam is being insulted continuously. "Especially around the Gaza-demonstrations, you can read on social media that Islam is a stupid religion. That anti-Semitism can only be fought if action is taken against Islam. Apparently we find this kind of text normal, but of course it isn't", De Kleijn says.
