    Dutch Intellectuals Apologize to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine...

    Dutch Intellectuals Apologize to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine...

    Wednesday, 27 August 2014

    A letter sent by a prominent Dutch Professor to Russian president Vladimir Putin has attracted much media attention in Europe. The letter was written by Professor Cees Hamelink and signed by dozens of Dutch intellectuals and professors. Below is the letter in its entirety.



    Dear Mr. President Putin,

    Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country.

    We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for 'crimes' without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.

    Funny.
    Dear Mr Putin.
    We collectively bend over and spread our cheeks for you to have your way with us.

    Web sources differ as to whether the prof wrote the letter, several report - or claim - that he has denied having written it. His wikipedia page makes no mention of it.

    Since the opening poster is well-known on this forum and elsewhere as a purveyor of highly questionable items, one wonders.
