Dutch city allows pro-Hamas event, bans counter-protest
In an unusual rebuke, Israel's embassy in the Netherlands expressed "great concern" over the hosting in Rotterdam of an event organized by Hamas supporters.
The embassy published the statement Friday ahead of Saturday's gathering of several hundred people at a conference titled "Palestinians in Europe," which the embassy said was a front for Hamas.
Authorities had denied a request by pro-Israel activists to march in Rotterdam Saturday in protest of the gathering, which was organized by the Palestinian Return Center, or PRC, Het Paroool daily reported.
