Former Dutch Premier under Attack for Revealing Involvement of Israeli Settlers in Poisoning Palestinians


A former prime minister of the Netherlands, Dries van Agt, said in an interview for a recently aired documentary that Israeli settlers poisoned their Palestinian neighbors in 2015, his statement angered the Zionist lobby in the world.
“And then one morning something terrible happened: The olive grove and the vegetable garden below — the colonizers always take to top hills – were strewn with poison. And a three-year-old child became very ill. The only explanation was that she drank the milk of a poisoned goat. She was poisoned.”

The incident occurred in 2015 near Nablus, Van Agt said.

His interviewer, Frans Bromet, asserted: “These things, they’re not unusual. Van Agt replies: “Oh, no. That’s what the wonderful people from the peace organization say.

This happens all the time in Palestine.”
B’Tselem spokesperson Dror Sadot confirmed that his group is aware of one case of poisoning by Israeli settlers, resulting in no human casualties.

The Zionist institutions launched a new wide campaign against Van Agt, accusing him of anti-Semitism because he said the truth of what is happening in Palestine and the reality of Israeli crimes against the Palestinians.

It is noteworthy that a similar campaign was subjected to the English actress Emma Watson due to a post on her account on Instagram, in which she expressed her solidarity with Palestine against the Israeli occupation crimes.

It is worth noting that the Zionist lobby always resorts to accusing the solidarity activists of anti-Semitism in an attempt to absolve the Israeli occupation of its crimes against Palestinian civilians.
