Interview with Holland's Chief Rabbi: Dutch Anti-Semitism
by Benjamin Jacobs
Dutch Chief Rabbi Benjamin Jacobs' family has lived in Holland for generations. As a little boy, he recalls being almost embarrassed to be the only one of his friends to have both grandparents, a rare miracle indeed since 90 percent of Dutch Jewry was murdered by the Nazis.
"This horrifying statistic" he told an Israel National News' interviewer, "was achieved with the full cooperation of the Dutch police who went from house to house to round up the Jews for the Nazi death machine.
"And last week", he continued, "when I left my home located opposite a kindergarten, a four year old child pointed at me and yelled 'Jew, Jew;"
Recently, when the rabbi presided at a memorial for Holocaust victims, Dutch youths yelled "Heil Hitler" during his speech. "Punshing them won't keep them from doing it again," he asserts.
