The Netherlands betrays the Jews — again

The English is followed by a Dutch translation

As long as the Netherlands does not want to deal with its war record (different from Germany), there will be nothing new under the sun.

Jews fleeing Nazi-Germany were not allowed in because that would cost the Dutch jobs.

The Dutch government in exile told the Resistance that it was not allowed to blow up the railroad tracks to and from Dutch concentration Camp Westerbork because that was bad for the general economy – and you don’t make everyone suffer for the happiness of a few lousy Jews.

Now, under the (false) cloak of being a robust ally of Israel, the Netherlands pals up with the archenemy of the Jewish State. That is only revolting if you love Jews and truth.

This betrayal has nothing to do with Jew-hatred – only with a lack of interest for “the other” – and especially so for Jews because they are merely bloodsuckers.

The moral: it is much too easy to blame this on our “friend,” FM Sigrid Kaag (who lives with a Palestinian partner, above pictured with a laughing Iranian FM Zarif in Tehran). The whole of the Netherlands is culpable (the good ones excepted). Betrayal of Jews, just like 75 years ago, is simply not considered something grave.

The Netherlands is a small country in Europe but it is also wealthy. (The Dutch don’t advocate that so much but the spoils of a “rich” (!) colonial past are guarded well in the safes of this frugal people.) It seeks to play a leading role in the EU, which has a checkered past regarding the Jews (Holocaust) and still, as a whole, is not very kosher on the Jewish State.


Talking of anti-Jewish sentiments: How come Rubashkin was now able to come to Israel and Jonathan Pollard still not?!


Zolang Nederland niet af will rekenen met haar oorlogsverleden (anders dan Duitsland) zal er daar niks nieuws onder de zon zijn.

Joden die Nazi-Duitsland wilden ontvluchten mochten er niet in want dat zou de werkgelegenheid in gevaar brengen.

Het Verzet mocht van de regering in ballngschap niet de spoorlijnen naar en van kamp Westerbork opblazen want dat zou slecht zijn voor de algehele economie – je laat niet iedereen lijden voor het geluk van die paar rottige Joden.

Nu, onder de (valse) dekmantel van robuste bondgenoot van Israel, papt Nederland aan met de aartsvijand van de Joodse Staat. Dat is alleen walgelijk als je van Joden en de waarheid houdt.

Dit verraad heeft niks te maken met Jodenhaat – alleen met ongeinteresseerdheid voor “de ander” – en zeker de Joden want dat zijn toch maar uitzuigers.

The moral: het is veel te makkelijk om het onze “vriendin,” BuZa’s Sigrid Kaag (die een Palestijnse partner heeft, op de bovenstaande foto met een goedlachse, Iranse minister van BuZa Zarif in Teheran) te verwijten. Heel Nederland heeft boter op z’n hoofd (de goeien niet te na gesproken), en dat met die hitte). Verraad van de Joden is, net als 75 jaar geleden, gewoonweg niet gezien als zo erg.

Nederland is in Europe maar een klein landje maar het is ook welvarend. (Nederlanders lopen daar niet zo mee te koop maar de buit van een “rijk” koloniaal verleden ligt veilig opgeborgen in de kluizen van dit spaarzame volkje). Nederland wil graag een voortrekkersfunctie in Europa spelen, wat van zichzelf een wisselende geschiedenis heeft t.a.v. de Joden (de Holocaust) en nog steeds over het algemeen niet erg koosjer is t.a.v. de Joodse staat.


Over anti-Joodse sentimenten gesproken: Hoe kan het dat Rubashkin nu in staat was om naar Israel te komen en Jonathan Pollard nog steeds niet?!

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, previously a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. He's proud that his analytical short comments are removed both from left-wing and right-wing news sites. None of his content is generated by the new bore on the block, AI. * As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. Or not at all because he doesn't claim G^d talks to him. He gives him good ideas—that's all. MM doesn't believe that people observe and think in a vacuum. He, therefore, wanted a broad bio that readers interested can track a bit what (lack of) backgrounds, experiences, and educations contribute to his visions. * This year, he will prioritize getting his unpublished books published rather than just blog posts. Next year, he hopes to focus on activism against human extinction. To find less-recent posts on a subject XXX among his over 2000 archived ones, go to the right-top corner of a Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". One can find a second, wilder blog, to which one may subscribe too, here: or by clicking on the globe icon next to his picture on top. * Like most of his readers, he believes in being friendly, respectful, and loyal. However, if you think those are his absolute top priorities, you might end up disappointed. His first loyalty is to the truth. He will try to stay within the limits of democratic and Jewish law, but he won't lie to support opinions or people when don't deserve that. (Yet, we all make honest mistakes, which is just fine and does not justify losing support.) He admits that he sometimes exaggerates to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * Sometimes he's misunderstood because his wide and diverse field of vision seldomly fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what some love about him. He has written a lot about Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (including basic statistics), Politics (Israel, the US, and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight reality), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA+, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), the Climate Crisis, Ecology and Veganism, Affairs from the news, or the Torah Portion of the Week, or new insights that suddenly befell him. * Chronologically, his most influential teachers are his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim, Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. This short list doesn't mean to disrespect others who taught him a lot or a little. One of his rabbis calls him Mr. Innovation [Ish haChidushim]. Yet, his originalities seem to root deeply in traditional Judaism, though they may grow in unexpected directions. In fact, he claims he's modernizing nothing. Rather, mainly basing himself on the basic Hebrew Torah text, he tries to rediscover classical Jewish thought almost lost in thousands of years of stifling Gentile domination and Jewish assimilation. (He pleads for a close reading of the Torah instead of going by rough assumptions of what it would probably mean and before fleeing to Commentaries.) This, in all aspects of life, but prominently in the areas of Free Will, Activism, Homosexuality for men, and Redemption. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, and disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. He aims to bring a fresh perspective rather than harp on the obvious and familiar. When he can, he loves to write encyclopedic overviews. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds should be disputed. In short, his main political positions are among others: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, anti those who abuse democratic liberties, anti the fake ME peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, pro-Science, pro-Free Will, anti-blaming-the-victim, and for down-to-earth, classical optimism, and happiness. Read his blog on how he attempts to bridge any tensions between those ideas or fields. * He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to his parents who were Dutch-Jewish Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork. He grew up a humble listener. It took him decades to become a speaker too, and decades more to admit to being a genius. But his humility was his to keep. And so was his honesty. Bullies and con artists almost instantaneously envy and hate him. He hopes to bring new things and not just preach to the choir. * He holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam) – is half a doctor. He practices Re-evaluation Co-counseling since 1977, is not an official teacher anymore, and became a friendly, powerful therapist. He became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he was active in hasbara to the Dutch-speaking public. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having an original peek outside of your cultural bubble. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me. * His newest books you may find here:
