Yesterday Israel announced that all 600 foreign activists would be freed within two days. These include two Dutch: Rashed and Anne de Jong (29).
The originally Palestinian Rashed has a Dutch passport and operates from Rotterdam.
In his struggle against Israel the Dutch activist lost an arm in the past. The Dutch man is mentioned as one of the organizers of the 'freedom flotilla' on the official website of the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement that fights for Islamic domination.
"Rashed is the leader of Hamas in the Netherlands," says an intelligence service source. "He appears by an alias, mainly Amin Abou Ibrahim, in several intelligence reports. He worked for the notorious Dutch foundation al-Aksa, which was suspected of collecting funds for the Hamas terror organization. He is also very active in the Palestinian Platform and Human Rights and Solidarity Foundation (PPMS)," says the intelligence agent.
Hamas is financed by worldwide Muslim 'charity institutions'. The Dutch 'Amin Abou Rashed' was mentioned in connection to the Holy Land Foundation, a notorious charity organization which was charged in America for financing Hamas.
