Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean, Rabbi Cooper (left) conferred with Dutch Deputy Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher (right) at The Hague about anti-Semitism among Dutch Muslim Students, a spike in online slanders targeting the memory of Anne Frank and of issues related to Internet hate.

The Deputy PM was presented a copy of Digital Terrorism and Hate 2013 CD report based on 20,000 problematic sites, social networking pages and Twitters.

Rabbi Cooper also provided Deputy PM Asscher with a new fatwa written by an influential Salafist Sheik posted this week on a website called The Pulpit of Monotheism and Jihad** (www.tawhed.ws) and promoted by Dutch Islamist extremists (Sharia4Holland) that discusses the targeting of Synagogues and Churches in Europe.
