Jewish community warns of ‘dangerous’ Dutch politician

THE HAGUE -- The chairman of the Jewish Community of Amsterdam asked a Dutch politician to warn US Jews about a "dangerous" rightist Dutch legislator.
Ronnie Eisenman, chairman of the executive board of the Jewish Community of Amsterdam, or NIHS, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that the "Amsterdam Jewish community regards [Dion] Graus as a danger for the interests of Dutch Jewish community."
Graus, an advocate of a ban on ritual slaughter, is in charge of animal welfare for the Party for Freedom headed by Geert Wilders.
Eisenman said the statement was based on "the content of [Graus'] standpoints and his presentation" in debating ritual slaughter.
