    Former Dutch prime minister Dries Van Agt (1977-82) has called Zionist entity’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu a war criminal who should be tried at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

    Speaking to Dutch television channel NPO 1, he said: “There is a war criminal to this country. so why we should receive someone who continue to violate United Nation resolutions on occupation, settlements, and terrorism.”

    Professor Van Agt (Catholic University of Nijmegen) was a staunch supporter of the Zionist entity during his time as country’s minister of justice and prime minister. However, in 2008 he confessed that he was ashamed of siding with Israel during his tenure. As an eye-opener for him served a horrendous story of a Palestinian student humiliated by the Jewish soldiers he heard on a visit to Bethlehem in 1999.

    Netanyahu arrived in Netherlands on Tuesday on a two-day official visit. He held meetings with his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte whom he calls “a personal friend”, followed by a visit to the Dutch monarch King Willem-Alexander. This is Netanyahu’s second visit to Amsterdam. He visited the city in 2012, while Mark Rutte visited Tel Aviv in 2013.

    Mark Rutte in a joint news conference with Netanyahu called for an end to new illegal Jewish settlements. He also called for an independent Palestinian state over PA territories occupied by Israel during June 1965 war.

    On Wednesday, Netanyahu visited Dutch parliament and shook hand with MPs. However, Muslim MP Tunahan Kuzu, 34 – wearing a Palestinian flag lapel pin – refused to shake hand with Netanyahu.

    Netanyahu on his part announced that Netherlands will help Israel to steal Gaza offshore gas reserves by building a pipeline between Israel and Gaza Strip.

    Thousands of Dutch citizens flooded Amsterdam street against Netanyahu visit (see video below).
