February 15, 2017

"Wij zijn er van overtuigd dat wij met dit team op 15 maart 2017 geschiedenis gaan schrijven, door het behalen van minimaal vijf zetels. Met dit team is er een gebalanceerde combinatie van degelijkheid en frisheid die het geluid van de ongehoorden een vervolg zal geven in de politieke arena. Wij strijden voor een eerlijker en rechtvaardiger Nederland. We bestrijden discriminatie en racisme en verzetten ons tegen de dubbele maat."


DENK: A new Muslim anti-Israel Party in the Netherlands

This is the direction Europe is taking.

Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld , ט' בכסלו תשע"ז, 12/9/2016

The massive non-selective immigration of Muslims into Western Europe is the worst that happened to Jewish communities in Western Europe since the Holocaust. It has also led to the most evil attacks on Israel's standing in Western Europe. A new development in the Netherlands adds further to the latter.

The new national party DENK (Think) party aims mainly at Muslim voters. Its initiators are two Turkish-born parliamentarians Tunahan Kuzu and Selçuk Öztürk. They were expelled from the Labor party (PvdA) faction at the end of 2014 because they opposed the integration policy for During Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to the Netherlands on 7 September 2016, he refused to shake his hand. immigrants of Deputy Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher (PvdA).[1] He had criticized the role of some Dutch Turkish organizations concerning integration of immigrants.[2] Kuzu got some international attention when, during Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to the Netherlands on 7 September 2016, he refused to shake his hand.

DENK favors the recognition of the non-existing Palestinian state. This policy has the support of all Dutch parties on the political left. These include the extreme left SP socialist party, the Green Left party, the party for the Animals, the Labor party and the D66 left-liberals. A recent parliamentary motion to recognize Palestine was defeated by 76 against 71 votes.[3]

The supporters of the motion know well that there exist two different Palestinian entities in respectively the 'West Bank' and Gaza. They are humanitarian racists who wish to ignore the fact that the largest Palestinian party Hamas, which controls Gaza, aims in its covenant for the genocide of all Jews.[4] The only other significant Palestinian party Fatah, which controls the 'West Bank', glorifies violence against Israeli citizens.

DENK takes a more extreme anti-Israeli position than all other parliamentary parties. It wants to prohibit the import of products from "illegal" Israeli settlements.[5] It also wants the Dutch government to request the Israeli government to reimburse the Dutch investment "in development projects in ‘Palestine' which have been destroyed by proven actions of the Israeli government."[6]

The DENK program is a lengthy document. If one reads it carefully it doesn't accept the Dutch culture as a lead culture. It expresses that in glib ways, which do not explain exactly what that may mean in practice. It states that not only the immigrants have to listen to the Dutch but also the reverse.[7] One example of such a glib statement is: "When I think about the Netherlands I dream about a healthy Netherlands where the nurse Thea takes into account the desires and demands of aunt Latifa."[8]

That may mean that Latifa is not willing to be treated by a male doctor. It may also mean that Latifa is an anti-Semite who doesn't want a Jewish nurse to care for her. I once interviewed a Jewish nurse from Amsterdam. She said: "A Moroccan man whose child I took care of went to his general practitioner. The father said that he did not want his child to be treated by a Jewish nurse. So his doctor sent him to another hospital."[9] It was one among many cases of Muslim anti-Semitism in the Netherlands. The Jewish nurse whose family I have known for many decades, was not willing to have her name disclosed. That is often the case with for Jews who tell about bad experiences with Muslims.

There are already local Muslim parties for years. In summer 2015 Rotterdam mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb (Labor) wanted to lead a trade-mission of his city to Israel. There was opposition against it in the municipal council. It came from a coalition of leftists and Muslim anti-Israel inciters: Nida, a Muslim party, the SP and Green Left. Later in the year Aboutaleb visited Saudi Arabia. SP and two other parties opposed it. The Green Left and NIDA apparently did not mind.[10]

Amsterdam mayor Eberhard van der Laan (Labor) wanted in 2015 to twin his city with Tel Aviv and Ramallah.[11] Among the first to oppose it were the unions of Turkish workers[12]and Moroccan workers as well as other Muslim organizations.[13] Later a municipal council motion was adopted which put some limitations on the contacts with Tel Aviv but none on the glorifiers of Palestinian violence against Israeli civilians in Ramallah.[14] The motion was proposed by the Labor Party, which traditionally has been the main party which attracted Muslims. It was one example of secondary effects of Muslim anti-Israelism: Discriminatory proposals against Israel might please Muslims.

In 2014, during the last Gaza conflict, demonstrations against Israel took place in a number of Dutch cities. They ignored Hamas' crimes and thus indirectly supported the Palestinian genocide-promoting party. The participants were usually manly Muslims and Dutch leftists. In Utrecht at such a gathering Judith Sargentini, a Green Left member of the European Parliament spoke. When she not only criticized Israel but also wanted to criticize Hamas, she had to stop speaking.[15]

The number of immigrants and their descendants in the Netherlands from Muslim countries is about one million. This represents about 6% of the Dutch population. One third of these originate from Turkey. There 69% of the adult population are classic anti-Semites as published in 2014 in a In the meantime there are signs in Dutch society that dislike of Muslims is getting stronger. global study of the Anti Defamation League.[16] Almost one third are Moroccans. The same study found that there the number of classic anti-Semites is 80%.[17] One might characterize one aspect of the Dutch non-selective immigration policy as a huge program bringing in many anti-Semites from Muslim countries.

In the meantime there are signs in Dutch society that dislike of Muslims is getting stronger. It has two components. One is Dutch xenophobia, part of which is Islamophobia. It represents how disliking some people turns into an attack on the group these belong to as a whole. The second is the result of misbehavior, sometimes extreme, of individuals stressing their being Muslims and some Muslim organizations in several ways.

One of the indicators of this dislike are the high poll data of the anti-Islam party PVV led by Geert Wilders. In the 2012 elections it obtained 15 seats out of the 150 in parliament. Current polls give it around twice that number. The PVV program includes closure of all mosques and Islamic schools as well as banning the Koran. Among other items are preventive detention of radical Muslims, the banning of Islamic headscarves in public functions and no further admission of asylum-seekers and immigrants from Islamic countries.[18]

DENK gets support from Ankara in election campaign

DENK krijgt steun van Ankara in verkiezingscampagne'

De partij DENK krijgt vanuit Ankara steun in de verkiezingscampagne. De door Turkije betaalde imams verspreiden een SOS-bericht met de oproep op 15 maart op de partij van Tunahan Kuzu te stemmen...
..."Voorzitter Yürükel van de Turkse Raad in Nederland treft in de tekst ‘de argumenten van islamisten' aan. Hij zegt dat de redenering precies lijkt op die van de Turkse president Tayyip Erdogan en AKP-partij. Hij twijfelt er niet aan dat DENK actief gesteund wordt door Diyanet, het ‘Presidium voor Godsdienstzaken' in Ankara. Yürükel: ‘Het is zeer gevaarlijk om op deze manier in te spelen op sentimenten. Turkse mensen zullen zich nog sterker isoleren van de rest van de Nederlandse samenleving.'

MIM: The Islamo facist party DENK has again shown its true colors by advocating for forced "curing" of what they deem to be racism ignoring the fact that Muslims are not a race. One chilling plan is for "re education of citizens" in a page taken straight from the Stalinist playbook.

"Denk has often presented ideas to make people less racist. In a wide ranging anti discrimination plan from Denk is written for example that Dutch people who discriminate must be forced to talk with minorities as a punishment. The people who have made racist comments can thereby "learn from their mistakes."

DENK heeft al vaker ideeën geopperd om mensen minder racistisch te maken. In het uitgebreide antidiscriminatieplan van DENK staat bijvoorbeeld dat discriminerende Nederlanders als straf moeten praten met minderheden. De mensen die zich racistisch hebben uitgelaten, kunnen zo ‘leren van hun fouten'.


Mosques: Muslims Being Put Under Pressure To Vote For DENK

The political movement DENK has put pressure on the administration of mosques to urge their congregants to vote for DENK. Diverse mosque administrations have reported this.

Moskeeën: moslims worden onder druk gezet om DENK te stemmen

De politieke beweging DENK zet moskeebesturen onder druk om hun achterban aan te sporen op DENK te stemmen. Diverse moskeebesturen zouden dat aangeven.


Confusing Diyanet Poster Removed From Polling Place In East Amsterdam

MIM: The polling place was a Turkish Diyanet owned mosque.

"The polling place was decorated with Turkish flags and there were folders lying around from the religious movement that is directed from and paid by the government of president Erdogan...The Turkish radio could be heard in the background of the mosque..."

Verwarrende poster Diyanet verwijderd uit stembureau in Oost

Het stembureau is aangekleed met Turkse vlaggen en er liggen folders van een religieuze beweging die wordt aangestuurd vanuit, en betaald door, de regering van president Erdogan. Maar er werd niet geflyerd, laat burgemeester Eberhard van der Laan aan de raad weten. 'Er hing een poster die niets te maken had met de verkiezingen maar hij bracht wel verwarring. En verwarring, ook al is het feitelijk niet juist, dan moet die uiting weg.'

Gemeenteambtenaren werden opgeroepen om naar het stemlokaal te komen om eventueel 'verboden campagnemateriaal' te verwijderen. De vlag is door de voorzitter van het stembureau op verzoek van de gemeente weggehaald.

De moskee is een Diyanet-moskee. Diyanet is een Turkse overheidsinstantie voor religieuze zaken. Ook zou de Turkse radio op de achtergrond in de moskee te horen zijn.
