Pieter Broertjes, Mayor of Hilversum, said on the radio that he wanted 29-year-old Maria Putin, the daughter of the Russian President, thrown out of The Netherlands where she lives with her Dutch boyfriend. This is because of the Dutch frustration with Russia concerning the major plane crash in Ukraine, where a large number of Dutch were killed. Broertjes later apologized on Twitter, saying that his remarks were not wise and stemmed from a feeling of helplessness. [Broertjes, in the past, was the editor-in-chief of the Dutch daily, Volkskrant.]

Dutch Papers Refrain from Reporting About Nazi Criminal Posters at Pro-Palestinian Demonstrations in Amsterdam
Major Dutch papers have not reported that at the pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Amsterdam there were illegal flags. The site below shows pictures taken at the demonstration, which show banners with swastikas, posters which say “Jews are like Hitler”, and “Jews are Murderers and Commit a New Holocaust”, and a flag of the Palestinian terror organization, the PFLP. A leading Dutch quality paper, NRC, quoted the police as saying, “there were no illegal signs or symbols”. [Earlier, the Dutch state television had to admit that it had intentionally deleted similar banners from its report on pro-Palestinian demonstration in The Hague.]

NOS, a Dutch Public Television news broadcaster has admitted that it has censored the swastikas at an anti-Israel demonstration in The Hague mainly attended by Muslims. They claim that these were carried only for a short time by a single person. [Which is untrue.] The Elsevier newspaper says that this attitude is inconsistent with earlier NOS reporting on right-wing demonstrations. It comments: ‘If expressions of anti-Semitism in 2014 have no news value anymore the question remains which incidents the NOS want to publicize and which ones not.”
