Arnhem – A member of the mainstream Dutch Green Left party is under fire after saying Holocaust-traumatized Jews came to Israel “to be Nazis”.

Alireza Taimurizadeh, an activist in the Arnhem area for Green Left, in recent remarks on Facebook called Israel “a country which makes a Jew feel shame. Israel, the bribe for 6 million lives, far away, where they can live out their trauma, react to it WHERE THEY CAN BE THE SS.”

He included a link to an article on Haaretz about the alleged mistreatment of Palestinian Arab prisoners.

The party distanced itself from Taimurizadeh, with a spokesman telling the RTV Arnhembroadcaster on Monday that the post was “inappropriate and unacceptable.”
