Dutch Muslims called Jews “cancer” in a chant at a protest in Rotterdam.

They congregated at the Turkish embassy to protest against the decision to refuse to admit a Turkish Minister to the country. Having heard a rumour that  Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya had been arrested, they began to chant “cancer Jews” and “cancer Wilders”. The rumours themselves were false.

Geert Wilders is a hard right figure in Dutch politics with a hardline anti-Islam stance. Blaming Jews for a political figure being arrested is itself antisemitic, but describing Jews as a “cancer” is explicitly so, and is reminiscent of Nazi propaganda which often compared Jews to a disease.
