Don’t be silent! There are so many of us

Sigrid Kaag - Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Netherlands
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 06:59

Dutch Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag, made a strong argument against populism, during an annual lecture in September, in honour of Holocaust survivor Abel Herzberg. "We increasingly notice that parts of society are susceptible to half-truths, manipulation, fake news", she said. She drew a comparison with the Weimar Republic - Germany just after World War I - where democracy was overthrown by increasingly radical parties. Kaag also said that she is regularly confronted with her Dutch identity as a person married to a Palestinian man. She regularly has to explain that her daughter is really her daughter, just because she looks 'different'. "Sometimes, because of my marriage and career, I am treated as a foreigner in my own country. And then I wonder: who decides that? Who is the Dutch foreign national, and who is not. In the stereotype I often clearly belong, and more painfully, my children too."

Upon realizing that crossing the given route is limited, its trial object would be named as ‘Betrayer’ or targeted as ‘Gov. Sanction’. Extending of this status, urged and resulted let David create hand written images between # 1 and # 58. Still, there, no one, no response, no way to get out, its condition is extended. Its uselessness, barren condition has been extended as usual.

Money can buy, a golden bed but not sleep. I doubt if the ICC suspect slept at all.
