Fierce fighting in eastern Ukraine has forced authorities to suspend the search for victims who died when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot out of the sky. "The Dutch mission at the crash site of MH17 has stopped," Prime Minister Mark Rutte told reporters Wednesday. Search teams plan to return to the plane crash site, Rutte said. But he didn't give a date of when that might happen. "We have done what we could do in the current conditions," Rutte said. "Everyone will agree with us that we should not expose our people to unnecessary risk."

"Enough is Enough," read the headline Sunday of the country's largest daily newspaper De Telegraaf, calling for NATO intervention and a deployment of forces to secure the crash site. Prime Minister Mark Rutte was visibly angry when he described the behavior of those at the crash site as "utterly disgusting" and called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to intervene Sunday. "I told him the time is running out to quickly show the world that he intends to help," Rutte said. "He must take the responsibility now with the rebels and show the Netherlands and the world that he is doing what is expected of him."

Election time in Europe, I’ve got a front row seat in the Benelux, Belgium-The Netherlands-Luxemburg. In Luxemburg things are rather civilized, the population here enjoys a very encouraging tax-climate and former Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker is a well liked candidate. In the Netherlands a strange phenomenon; none of the political parties wish to utter a pro Europe voice. When asked the question: “Are you pro Europe?” the most positive response came from the Prime Minister Mark Rutte. The best he could do was: “I’m pro-Netherlands, and in the interest of a positive development of the Dutch economy, we need Europe.” It gets creepy in Belgium. The country is like a political twilight zone. The European Parliament elections take the backseat in Belgium. They hold simultaneous federal and regional elections. Belgium has 3 queens, 2 kings, 6 governments and 7 parliaments imagine the cost of that chaos. I’ve asked around, nobody seems to have a satisfying explanation for this waste. Belgium c ...

Kazakhstan’s Multi-Vector Foreign Policy in Action By Erlan Idrissov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Recent foreign policy developments, including top-level meetings and visits, have once again demonstrated the critical importance of Kazakhstan’s multi-vector foreign policy. Remaining true to the fundamental principles and values of this well-established doctrine is the only viable option for a country such as ours. While in The Hague to participate in the Nuclear Security Summit on March 24-25 (which, by the way, went extremely well for which we should give great credit to our Dutch hosts), President Nursultan Nazarbayev had a busy schedule and a very productive set of meetings. Beginning with his successful and fruitful bilateral visit to The Netherlands and his meetings with the hosts King Willem-Alexander and Prime Minister Mark Rutte, President Nazarbayev also had substantive and in-depth meetings with Presidents Xi Jinping of China, Barack Obama of the United States, François Holland ...
White House Mijn interview met PRI-BBC he World nu geciteerd in Washington Post President Obama: (Still) huge in Europe By Katie Zezima, Washington Post the Fix President Obama's trip last week underscored one thing: He's more popular abroad than he is at home. Crowds lined the streets of Brussels, The Hague and Rome to catch a glimpse of Obama's motorcade. The crowd watching Obama's speech at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels was described as "star-struck." Obama is so popular in the Netherlands, where he began his trip, that there's an Obama Club, PRI reports. Its members get together and discuss issues relevant to Obama's presidency, including foreign policy and diversity. "These countries in Western Europe are really Obama countries," historian Willem Post told the PRI radio show "The World." "I think that has to do with the fact that this is a U.S. president who calls himself a global citizen [and urges] diplomacy first."

US, EU Press Russia to Recognize Ukraine’s Putschist Regime "Amid US President Barack Obama’s tour of Europe, US and European Union (EU) officials pressed Moscow to recognize the Western-backed Ukrainian regime that emerged from last month’s fascist-led putsch in Kiev. Speaking with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte amid a nuclear summit at The Hague, Obama briefly addressed the Ukraine crisis. Denouncing the March 16 referendum in which Crimea seceded from Ukraine and was annexed to Russia, he said: “We are also concerned about further encroachment by Russia into Ukraine. So what I announced and what the European Council announced was that we were consulting and putting in place the framework, the architecture for additional sanctions, additional costs, should Russia take the next step.” He added, “There is another path available to Russia. The Ukrainian government has said it is prepared to negotiate with Russia, that it is prepared to recognize its international obligations. And the internati ...
The question is "what do you see here?" A - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte riding a bicycle to a joint appearance with US President Barack Obama. B - A sharp study in contrasts...Obama traveled in his usual armored limousine, complete with full Secret Service detail and Presidential motorcade, while Rutte rides alone on a bicycle. C - A flagrant violation of established safety protocols...no helmet, no clip keeping his pants leg from getting tangled in the chain. D - An un-artful and gratuitous over-use of artificial digital 'vignette' effect. The correct answer is "D".

The dictum of Mark ‘Europe if necessary, national when possible’.
The PM met Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to discuss Europe and the situation in Ukraine. Read the statement:
Excerpt from the papers: he Netherlands is one of the top-medalling nations in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, with totals rivaling both the much larger Russia and United States. The Dutch practically own the podium in the speedskating events. But still, there is always something to complain about in Holland. Take, for example, the Dutch king and queen's exuberant cheering for and celebration of the Dutch speedskaters' sweep of the 500-meter dash. Is this really how royalty should behave? The Reformatorisch Dagblad thought not. In an editorial, the Dutch newspaper wrote that the king's enthusiasm does not fit with the dignity of the position. “Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child,” it quoted from the Bible. The king has friends in high places, though. When Prime Minister Mark Rutte was asked in a press conference to reply to that criticism, he used the term "whiners" to characterize those who criticized the king's enthusiasm as less than royal. (The Reformatorisch Dagblad is a Dutch protestant ...

Party Leader Alexander Pechtold expressed his "intense sadness" when he learnt about her sudden death. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte praised Borst as "a wise professional, with clear and considered standpoints, who stood her ground". ALDE Party President Sir Graham Watson MEP: "With sadness I learnt about the unexpected death of Els Borst. Her passing is a great loss for D66 and the Netherlands. She was an open minded and forthright politician." Els Borst was a former health minister from 1994 to 2002, and between 1998 and ...

Human rights organisations are appealing to the Dutch authorities to stop deportation of Moses S., a *** asylum seeker from Uganda. by Stephen Ogongo Ongong’a - The Africa News - January 3, 2014. The Italian based EveryOne Group and the Ugandan based St. Pauls Voice Centre (SPAVOC) have appealed to King Willem-Alexander, Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the ministers in charge and the States-General of the Netherlands to save Moses from deportation that would put his life in danger. On 20th December 2013 Uganda's Parliament adopted a controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill, criminalizing, outlawing and providing harsh jail terms for same sex relationships in the country. “Unfortunately some EU member states have sometimes deported LGBT people to intolerant countries, who have suffered severe persecution or even disappeared after deportation,” EveryOne Group and SPAVOC say. In their appeal against deportation of Moses to Uganda, the human rights bodies say: “Moses is a *** man who fled his country because ...

The Zionists can no longer count on even the cheapest of desperate European construction labour to assist in their crimes against the Palestinians. Israel in settlements row with Romania Published today (updated) by Ma’an News 11/12/2013 12:04 p.m. GMT+0200 JERUSALEM (AFP) -- A diplomatic spat has erupted between Israel and Romania after Bucharest reportedly refused to allow Romanian construction workers to be employed in West Bank settlements, Israel's military radio said Tuesday. The row comes in the wake of tensions between Israel and the European Union over new guidelines that bar EU funding for any Israeli entity operating in the occupied Palestinian territories. Talks with Bucharest on importing Romanian manual labor broke down in 2012, the radio said, but resumed at Israel's initiative after a new Romanian government came to power in May of that year. Differences center on Bucharest's request that Israel guarantee no Romanian construction workers would be employed on the settlements, which are co ...

Simon Weisenthal Center Exposes European anti-Semitism By Arutz Sheva Staff 15/11/2013 - Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, raised the findings of Manfred Gerstenfeld’s book, Demonizing Israel and the Jews with Philippine Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Archbishop of Manila on Wednesday. The Cardinal was an important candidate in the recent Papal election and may become the first Asian Pope. Demonizing Israel and the Jews documents that 150 million out of 400 million adult Europeans mistakenly believe that Israel is exterminating the Palestinian Arabs, much in the same way the Nazis sought a systemic extermination of Jews. During a meeting a few weeks ago in which 60 members of the Simon Wiesenthal Center participated, Rabbi Marvin Hier discussed this issue with the Pope. The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent copies of the book to the cardinals and archbishops who head the Conferences of Bishops in various Western European countries. Rabbi Cooper has also discussed the Dut ...

Maybe a Good Idea For the U.S.: Elsewhere in the world, such shutdowns are practically impossible. The parliamentary system used by most European democracies ensures that the executive and legislature are controlled by the same party or coalition. Conceivably, a parliament could refuse to pass a budget proposed by the prime minister, but such an action would likely trigger a failure of the government and a new election - witness the current situation in the Netherlands, where Prime Minister Mark Rutte's government faced a no-confidence vote at the start of debate over his 2014 budget proposal. And even when there is a gap prior to a new government taking office, national services continue to operate.

Rich foreigners can 'buy' a Dutch residency permit for €1.25m Rich foreigners are to be offered temporary residency permits if they agree to invest at least €1.25m in Dutch companies. Junior justice minister Fred Teeven hopes the measure will provide an impulse for the Dutch economy, news agency ANP reported. The scheme will come into effect on October 1 and the permits will be valid for one year. The economic affairs ministry will judge applications to see if they contain added value, such as generating jobs, before deciding if they should be accepted. Officials will also look in detail at where the money comes from to prevent the ruling being used to launder money. Applicants will also be subjected to personal checks to ensure they are not a threat to public order. Teeven expects several hundred requests, ANP said. Canada, the US, Australia, Britain, France and Ireland operate similar schemes. Criticism Opposition MPs slammed the government’s decision to offer temporary residency permits to rich f ...
I read in the paper yesterday that the King of the Netherlands, Willem Alexander (who, being a monarch, is supported with taxes - wouldn't he be?) was telling the Dutch people that they would have to start learning to take "personal responsibility" and prepare themselves to live in a "participation society" (think of W's "ownership society"), in which they would not have social security or healthcare benefits - he is promoting Prime Minister Mark Rutte's austerity measures. They can't afford to take care of their people, but they can afford a king!?

The speech, which lasted 17 minutes, focused on forthcoming legislation, in particular on changes to the care sector. In the speech, which was written by the government, the king signalled the end of the 'classic welfare state' and a switch towards a 'participation society' in which people take control of their own lives. The current situation is not sustainable, the king said. 'People want to make their own choices, determine their own lives and care for each other.'

Fin whales are magical giants of the sea. But in days, over 180 of these endangered species are set to be slaughtered by one tycoon and his buddies whose summer hobby is to harpoon them, chop them up and ship their meat through the Netherlands to Japan for dog food! There is one way to stop the hunt before it starts -- you can’t dock a boat full of illegal whale carcasses just anywhere. German and Finnish authorities have shunned the shameful trade. Now, the Dutch are the linchpin. They care deeply about their reputation as environmental leaders, and are hoping this bloody trade won’t get any global attention. But if we expose it now and demand the Dutch authorities refuse the transfer of whale meat in their port, we can stop the whale massacre! We have to act fast -- the whaling ships are due to start the hunt in days. Sign now and tell everyone to join -- let's build a one million strong campaign to Prime Minister Mark Rutte now warning him that we will create a media storm with giant whales on his ...
From today's New York Times: BRUSSELS — With the European economy reeling from austerity and joblessness, the European Union took time last week to focus on something rather smaller in scale: it approved a measure that would ban restaurants from serving olive oil in cruets or dipping bowls. The reaction was severe. Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands condemned the measure, calling it “too bizarre for words” and not at all green. Criticism was particularly harsh in Britain, often the first among critics of the European Union’s reach. The olive oil rule was “exactly the sort of area that the European Union needs to get right out of, in my view,” Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain said Wednesday after a meeting of the bloc’s leaders in Brussels. “It shouldn’t even be on the table,” he said, immediately begging forgiveness for the wordplay.
