A tirade of hate against Israeli students by the Islamist Party of Unity leader, who sits on Dutch capital’s city council, was dismissed. He continues to post hate speech on Facebook.

A Dutch court dismissed a lawsuit filed again Hague council member Abdoe Khoulani for blatantly anti-Semitic statements he made after seeing Israeli highschoolers visiting the Dutch parliament.
Posting on Facebook, Khoulani called the delegation “Zionist terrorists in training” and “future child murderers and occupiers.”
Facebook has since removed the post, but not before it was attacked by several members of parliament and protested by Israeli Ambassador to the Netherlands, Aviv Shir-On.
Ynet reported that Shir-On sent a letter to the mayor of The Hague, saying, “To call them murderers and claim they have Palestinian blood on their hands just because they are Israeli is not just a scandal, it is absolutely unacceptable. These words are nothing but anti-Israel incitement that can lead to violence that we have unfortunately seen in Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester and London.”
Court Victory a ‘Hard Slap in the Face’ of the Zionists
However, he continues to post hate speech on Facebook. Commenting on the court’s decision, he wrote, “Thank God,” and that it’s a “hard slap in the face” to the Center Information and Documentation of Israel, an independent, pro-Israel Dutch foundation based in The Hague.
The Israeli students were from the Hen School for Young Ambassadors, who were touring The Hague as part of their leadership training program. They had come to the Netherlands as guests of the youth movement of the Reformed Political Party, which lodged the police complaint against Khoulani.
On Wednesday, the Dutch court ruled that since the complaint was filed by a third party and not by the students themselves, and since “an attack on Zionism cannot be seen as incitement on racist or religious grounds,” Khoulani would not be tried.
‘Long Live ISIS’
However, it did add that Khoulani will have to appear in court for his string of harsh verbal attacks on Dutch pro-Israel activist Anneke Brons, who criticized his anti-Semitic post, because she had filed suit as the injured party. Khoulani left voice messages that called her, among other things, a “blonde b***ch,” and told her that she should leave the Netherlands because she belongs “with the Zionist scum.”
The Dutch Islamist has been known to use vitriolic language before, and not always against Israel. In June 2014 Khoulani had a pro-terror post on Facebook, saying, “Long live ISIS! If Allah wills it, we will go to Baghdad to reckon with the scum there.”
