Last week, Yasmina Haifi, an official at the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism in the Netherlands, stated that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, and that it is a Zionist plan to make Islam look bad.

This is so incredibly appalling; I am at a total loss for words.

Via Gatestone Institute: Dutch Official Calls ISIS “A Zionist Plot”

On Tuesday last week, Yasmina Haifi, an official at the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism in the Netherlands, tweeted: “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It is a preconceived plan of Zionists who want to deliberately make Islam look bad.”

….The outcry from the general public that followed her remarks initially did little to make her take back her words. The next day, however, she deleted the tweet, saying: “Realise the political sensitivity in relation to my work. This was never my intention.” The same day, Haifi told national broadcast Radio 1 that she had no idea her comments would cause such an upheaval. “I assumed I was living in a democratic country,” she said. “Apparently freedom of speech in the Netherlands applies to particular groups and not to others.”

Haifi said she had based the information on “multiple sources from the internet.” These consisted of a supposed statement by Edward Snowden, that the Mossad and the U.S. created ISIS. A simple background search would have shown this to be a firmly debunked hoax which was created by Iranian authorities. Even Snowden himself vehemently denies ever having said anything about ISIS….

Haifi was suspended on Wednesday…

Haifi’s comments come at a time when widespread anti-Semitism among Muslims has become painfully visible. In the past months in The Hague, three pro-Gaza rallies have taken place, all of which have featuring ISIS flags, along with signs in Arabic calling to “Kill all Jews,” and a quote from the hadith [the acts and sayings of Muhammad] that, “There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” The police were remarkably reluctant to arrest the protesters….

The reluctance thoroughly to screen Muslim security officials, the reluctance of the Dutch authorities to see the genocidal terrorist group ISIS for what it is, and the reluctance to fire Ms. Haifi from all her government and party positions, all illustrate how the charge of “Islamophobia” is being used as a political weapon — to silence people so that any opposition will be neutralized before it can even start….

    Recent Netherlands history. Wikip: [Theo] Van Gogh worked with the Somali-born writer and politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali to produce the short film Submission (2004), which criticized the treatment of women in Islam. Many Muslims found it controversial for its criticism. On 2 November 2004 Van Gogh was assassinated by Mohammed Bouyeri, a Dutch-Moroccan Muslim.

    And in 2010, the Netherlands put Geert Wilders on trial for speaking ill of Islam. He was acquitted in 2011, but the trial was still negative in its resultant impact on free speech.

    The Netherlands gov’t can pooh pooh this one official and her tweet, but from a larger perspective unless Netherlands changes, she is seeing the writing on the dikes.

    The Dutch official might sound less stupid if she were to say that ISIS was caused by Global Warming.

    ISIS is really the Tea Party. This dutch person has had one too many tokes off the crack pipe.

    Censorship of language, in the guise of politically correct speech, serves only to hide the evil that lingers on in the minds of many. The attitudes demonstrated here illustrate how deep that evil goes. Better to allow these thoughts to be spoken thus revealing the true gangrene of the brain afflicting them. Sunlight is the best preventative of disease, and make no mistake, it is necessary to expose these sick souls to stop the festering, cancerous ideology they profess. We can not turn away from this evil, but must confront it and and fight it and we must win. We have seen and heard the enemy.
    Now a decision must be made. Once we defiantly proclaimed, never again would we allow the Holocaust of the Nazis. We can not hide, and say we didn’t know. We know all too well. The only question that remains is what are we going to do. Who’s voice will be raised?
    Today, as it has been forever, the target is the Jew. Tomorrow, as history has shown countless times, the target will be the rest of civilization.
    Never again. Never. NEVER
