Racist Violence Directed Increasingly At Whites December 14, 2006

AMSTERDAM, 14/12/06 – “Racism and discrimination are no longer a question of white against black, but have become much more complex,” states the Racism and Extremism Monitor presented yesterday. Leiden University and the Anne Frank Foundation, which compile the monitor, have added racist violence against whites as a separate research category.

“In the previous monitor we identified three movements: anti-Semitic violence, violence against Muslims and violence against refugees. A fourth category has been added: racist violence against whites. This is a relatively new theme and it is possible that the significance of the problem is insufficiently recognised,” explained the study.

Between 1 and 3 percent of the native Dutch (aged 16 and over) experienced racial discrimination in 2005. This is between 100,000 and 300,000 people. “The discrimination experience probably had a violent aspect in an unknown number of cases. These research findings prompted us to devote more attention than in the past to racism against whites as a theme in the monitor work.”

“There are a number of other developments that are striking in the ‘ethnic direction’ of racist violence. Firstly, this involves “the extremely sharp drop in recorded violent incidents directed at refugees”. Also noticeable “is the increase of racist violence against Muslims from 59 incidents to 70”. Finally, “the number of anti-Semitic violent incidents has “risen slightly”, which is “striking because other inventories show a decrease in anti-Semitic incidents.”

While a few years ago, racist violence against asylum seekers’ centres and refugee homes “was still a frequently occurring form of racist violence, this seems to have almost disappeared in 2005. Moreover, the registered violence against asylum seekers no longer took a serious form”.

The increase in racist violence against Muslims took place “in spite of a sharp drop in the number of registered incidents in which slogans were painted on Muslim buildings”. The growth “is primarily in the number of threats and more serious forms of violence such as assault, bomb scares and arson. This increase probably mainly reflects the reaction to the murder of Theo van Gogh in November 2004.”
