The following is a letter sent to friends in the Netherlands, regarding the arrest of Radovan Karadzic. It is entirely "oyf Niederlandish" - this blogger is expressing his deepest sympathy to them over the eventual light that will be cast on the Dutch role at Srebenica. And also mentions, in passing reference, the active participation of their nation during WWII (no, they were not quiescent during the occupation - given their support for the German cause, it may be incorrect to keep calling it an "occupation"), and the glorious history of the Netherlandish involvement in South East Asia.

Beste luitjes,

De arrestatie van de held van Srebenica kan onmogelijk goed uitkomen voor Nederland, daar hij wellicht transparantie zal schenken over de rol van Nederlandsche jongens in dat evenementje. En hoewel het merendeel der Nederlanders beslist het uitroeien van Islamieten en andere untermenschen goedkeuren (vandaar dat het zo lang geduurd heeft voordat men zelfs afwijkend over Srebenica sprak, of 'slands rol in WWII onder de loep nam, laat staan de glorieuze historie van Neerlands Oosten), is de rest van de wereld niet zo te spreken over zulke ellendige 'Ollandigheden.

Ik leef met u mee. U gaat moeilijke tijden tegemoet. Zelfs uw eigen verrotte pers zal eindelijk eens iets negatiefs over Nederland moeten schrijven. Ten diepste triest.

Met diepe sympathie,



I apologize to my English-speaking readers for not providing a translation.

I do not mean to insult you.

    So it says:

    Dear little folk,

    The arrest of the hero of Srebenica can impossibly end up well for the Netherlands, as he will give transparency concerning the role of Dutch boys in that little event. And although the majority of the Dutch approve of eradicating Islamites and other untermenschen (hence that it has long lasted this way before one spoke even derogatorily concerning Srebenica, or evaluated the Netherlands role in WWII, let stand the glorious history of Dutch in the East), the rest of the world are not to speak over such miserable 'Ollanderismishnesses.

    I sympathise with you, as you will go through trying times. Even your own rotted press at last must write something negative concerning the Netherlands. At deepest sad.

    I guess 'not to speak' means apoplectically enfuriated. Or so should be.

    Damn! You ARE a Dutch uncle. And your language that German habit of verbs at ends of sentences clustering has. Even by Babelfish, in between lines reading and rephrasing subsequently necessary proven was.

    Lev, from your final paragraph, which of the penultimate and utlimate sentences composed was, it can thusly be concluded: You Yoda are.

    Hail, master Yoda. The fish of Babal not far off mark was.

    Clearly, you've both been smoking The Balkan Gibberancy. I had thought that none such was still available?

    Perhaps Yossi and Lipman can add their pipe-smoking considerations to this string. Much clarity is needed - none as yet can be found here.

    You seem to have an unholy fascination with the sins of the Dutch. You take delight in highlighting their failings, but concommitantly do not mention their positive side. This can be taken as bias; indeed, a review of everything you have written about them does not show a positive regard for the modern Netherlands, and displays a remarkable distaste for everything that is theirs.

    I am left with a feeling of nausea. Not, as you might wish, for the Netherlanders, but more for someone who is remarkably unappreciative of the achievements of a small but significant player in our civilization. You should look within yourself, and try to discover from where your deep seated dislike comes. I doubt that you are impartial. I think that you are disturbed.

    Ah, the little folk speak. Welcome, little person! Now leave your Dutchly biases behind, and discover the marvelous world in which the Dutch are NOT the center of civilization.!

    And what, precisely and exactly, were the Hollanders doing on the Coromandal Coast? Do we call it "slave trading"?

    Why yes, we do.

    Grant, in their own navel, the Hollanders are undoubtedly the center of the universe.

    A literalist wrote the following: U bent niet goed geinformeerd in casu. Het is(zijn) juist de Nederlandse regering(en) die geijverd hebben om Karadcic voor het gerecht te krijgen. Tot woede van sommige andere EU landen blokkeerde de NL Regering een toetreding van Servië bij de EU als Karadcic niet zou worden uitgeleverd.

    Uw sympathie, al dan niet diep, is derhalve overbodig.

    To which I responded: Weet ik, en wist ik al.

    Edoch, reden van schrijven was slechts om het debacle weer op te halen. Dat was niet Nederland's mooiste dag. En daar veel van het Nederlandstalig geneuzel sneerend over oa Moslims is, kan de vraag beslist gesteld worden of de doorsnee Jan Kaas het niet met de Serbiers eens is. Hetgeen niet alleen mogelijk, maar ook waarschijnlijk is. En toentijde kan het beslist zijn geweest dat de Nederlandsche regering en militarie geen baat zag in een daadwerkelijke proteksie van die lui. Het waren maar jeweetwels, is het niet?

    Nederlanders zijn ergere bigoten dan zelfs Texanen gebleken. Maar weigeren dat van hunzelven te herkennen.

    U weet onderhand wel dat ik niet echt onder de indruk van Nederlanders en andere Europeanen ben.

    What I wrote still stands. Punkt.

    I shall not even try to babel-fish what you wrote. It's all double Dutch, isn't it?

    Point is, the Dutch gobmint insisted on extradition before admission, the Dutch public probably excused the massacre as both justified and of no significance, and there were probably Dutchmen on all sides in that war. As there were during the world war. The Dutch and Belgians joined up to fight on the eastern front, and killed Jews. Not with the mass enthusiasm of the Ukranians (shmei reshaim yirkav), but with an almost German attention to detail.

    Do most Hollanders today even know where in China Srebenica is?

    Harken, the little folk squawk yet further. I note that the Karadzic for whom geijverd was, was incorrectly spelled. Are we sure they got the right fellow? All those bearded eastern Eurpies look alike.
