Orthodox Jews should leave Holland because of anti-semitism: Bolkestein

Jews should consider leaving the Netherlands and going to America or Israel because of anti semitism, particularly among Dutch Moroccans, former VVD leader Frits Bolkestein told free newspaper De Pers.


Bolkestein said he sees no future in the Netherlands for Jews who stand out, such as orthodox Jews. Arabic tv senders are largely to blame for the anti-Jewish sentiment, the former EU commissioner said.
