Yesterday, we translated a Dutch article on homophobic incidents in Amsterdam. Today, we have a similar report on a study about homophobia and anti-Semitism in the Netherlands' 2nd-largest city, Rotterdam. As with Amsterdam, the victims report that a large percentage of the perpetrators are from non-Dutch, non-Western background, particularly Muslims and Moroccans. The below article appears in Barendrechtsdagblad and is translated by Fousesquawk.

That is what the victims say in several investigations, writes Leefbar (Party) counselor Tanya Hoogwerf, who takes these reports seriously and still wants an accelerated investigation supported by Rotterdam.
