An Israeli tourist in Holland expressed shock and dismay on Tuesday after he came across a large street display in the center of Amsterdam presenting Jews and Israelis as killers, the 0404 News site said.

“Amazing! In the center of Amsterdam you see such wild incitement,” the Israeli noted in the video clip.

“It’s strange that the local police do not do anything – this is clear incitement to harm Jews,” he said.

The dozens of photographs of Israeli leaders, military personnel and others, most illustrated with an “X” across their faces left little room for doubt.

Open hostility to Jews and Israel is rampant in many locations in Holland, particularly among the country’s Muslim population, a phenomena readily seen in many other European countries.

In August, during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, one Jewish activist told The Algemeiner that “Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism [are] one for a lot of people – and they are expressing that in many ways right now. There is particularly a lot going on on social media; some people in the Jewish community are receiving threats, including me, on social media.”

On Nov. 21, a Dutch journal noted that a local court threw out a case against the “Totalitarian Art Gallery” for selling several antique copies of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

“The public prosecution department said Michiel van Eyck should be fined €1,000 for selling the book. Although owning the book is legal in the Netherlands, it is not legal to sell it,” the paper reported.

The court, in its decision, asserted that “a conviction would be going too far and is not necessary in order to protect Jews against discrimination and hatred.”

Dutch News noted that the shop also sells other Nazi-era memorabilia, alongside “relics of Stalin’s rule in Russia and China under Mao.”
