Dutch FM warns group over 'Electronic Intifada' funding

Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal last week told a Netherlands interchurch group, the ICCO, that its funding of Palestinian website Electronic Intifada, which it said has published calls to promote Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) of Israel, contradicts official Dutch government policy.

Rosenthal urged the ICCO to remedy the situation, saying that continuing such activities could endanger the group's government funding. ICCO receives some 75 million Euros from the Dutch government. "There's nothing wrong with holding critical views, but going directly against government policy is something else," Rosenthal said.
