Demonstrators in support of the Islamic State were reportedly expected to take part in protests today at The Hague against police violence. Dutch police warned those planning to appear at a protest on Aug. 3 in Amsterdam against the Gaza offensive that Nazi symbols, Hitler salutes, the Islamic State flag, and flag burning will not be tolerated at the protest. On July 31, Islamic State supporters marched in The Hague waving black flags and chanting "Death to the Jews!"
Authorities arrested a 19-year-old woman in Zoetermeer, just east of The Hague, on suspicion of recruiting jihadists for Syria, after families complained that relatives had gone to Syria to fight. A broader investigation has also been launched into the recruitment of Dutch jihadists; while travel to Syria cannot be prohibited, the recruitment of jihadists is punishable by jail terms and fines. At least 107 Dutch citizens are believed to have gone to Syria for jihad.
