Netherlands: political message accuses “Moroccan Jews” of conspiring to reduce social security payments

Dutch-Moroccans are being encouraged not to vote for the ‘traitors of our community’.  The message, which is making the rounds via Whatsapp, refers to a recent debate about social security benefits paid to Dutch-Moroccans returning to Morocco.

It says “[Mohammed] Mohandis and other Moroccan Jews of the Labour Party support reductions, DENK is against.”

DENK is a political party Selçuk Öztürk and Tunahan Kuzu.

We can find no evidence that Mohandis is actually Jewish. This thus appears to be an attempt to scapegoat Moroccan Jews in the Netherlands for a political issue, making it an inherently antisemitic comment which borders on conspiracy theory.
