Mussert’s National Socialists
of Netherlands Get More
Open Reich Support


Pro-German Prosecutors Are
Named at the Hague After
Fatal Outbreak There


AMSTERDAM, German-Occupied
Netherlands, Sept, 14—Many symp-
toms point to more active promo-
tion by the German authorities of
the influence of the Netherland Na-
tional Socialists in domestic affairs
in all fields.

Their attempts to gain the na-
tion’s confidence having on the
whole proved unsuccessful, the fol-
lowers of Anton Adrian Mussert,
chief of the Nazis of this country,
are gladly accepting the strong
moral support of the Germans.

In yesterday's issue of his weekly
Volk en Vaderland, Mr. Mussert de-
clared his decision to establish a
“Dutch SS" as a sister organitza-
tion to the German Schutzstaffel
(Elite Guard).

“This militia will demonstrate
the Blutverbundenheit (blood Kkin-
ship) of the Netherland and Ger-
man people and illustrate the high
value that we Netherland National
Socialists attach to ancient virtues
of courage, honor and fidelity,”
wrote Alr. Mussert.

The prospective SS men would

system. he said, by leaders trained
in Germany.

Mr. Mussert’'s partisans are al-
lowed to raise their voices with in-
creasing freedom. Unmistakable
signs of German favor were he-
stowed on their movement Wednes-
day when wreaths from the Reich
Commissioner, Dr. Arthur Seyss-
Inquart and other German officials
adorned the grave of the Netherland
Nazi demonstrator killed by a police-
man during a recent riot at The
Hague. German officials spoke at
the funeral of the Hague “martyr.”

The Hague chief of police, E. van
der Mey, was removed from his
post because of the incident; and
the Nazis have named their own
public prosecutors, Messrs. Arnhem
and Hertogenbosch, in the Hague
municipal courts.

Persons offending the Netherland
Nazis have been severely punished
recently. Also, anti-Jewish leaflets
are allowed to he sold on the

The new regime established itself
in the newspaper field by the insti-
tution of a Press Chamber yestei-
dav. under the leadership of indi-
viduals representing the “New
Order.” Drastic measures to adjust
the Netherland press to Nazi prin-
ciples are expected soon.

Amsterdam are being closed. as
from today. Most of the merchants
in the street markets have been
Jews, and the German daily paper
here welcomed the new restriction.

Foreign Defense Ministers
Wilders government will
pull support
from Ukraine

Friday, 24 November 2023

Outgoing Defense Minister Kajsa
Ollongren has heard many
concerns from her
colleagues abroad about the
consequences the PVV’s election
victory will have for the war in
Ukraine. They fear the Netherlands
will stop supplying F-16 fighter jets
and other military support if
Geert Wilders’ party comes into

Ollongren pointed out that
the PVV won’t rule alone but
in a coalition with other parties.
“I hope and expect that this
support will continue,” the
outgoing D66 Minister said.
“But yes, the PVV is the largest,”
she continued. “In the past,
the PVV has never been
enthusiastic about supporting
Ukraine. In fact, it has also
expressed itself pro-Russian.”

In its election program,
Wilders’ party speaks about
the “Russian aggressor” who
“unlawfully invaded Ukraine.”
But, the PVV often
opposed sending money
and arms like the F-16s to Ukraine.

Ollongren said she would do
“everything I can to ensure
things don’t go that way.”
The Minister considers
this not only a matter of
solidarity but also vital
for the Netherlands’ own
safety. She is convinced
that Russia won’t stop
waging war if it wins in Ukraine.

Follow the Money recently reported,
based on documents leaked by
Ukrainian hackers, that the Kremlin
has very successfully been
developing ties with the PVV
since 2013. The documents
also show that PVV leader
Geert Wilders has been
trying to hide his far-right
populist party’s connections with
