Anti-semitism a feature of everyday life in the Netherlands...

We blogged several weeks earlier that the word 'Jew' is now an insult in Germany...
Anti-Semitic insults and expressions had "tended
to become a feature of everyday life in Holland, a pan-European anti-racism commission said in a report released Tuesday.

According to the Strasbourg-based European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), these insults “reflect in part a similar trend in Holocaust denial, notably among the younger generations."

The report said that the word "Jew" is increasingly used as an insult and different aspects of the Holocaust are reportedly questioned in everyday situations, including in schools.
