Indonesian War of Independence 1945-1949

    I am very concerned about the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza. It is unacceptable for Hamas to randomly fire rockets at the civilian population. The Netherlands supports Israel's right to self-defense, within the limits of international law and proportionality.

One hour later a tweet with a bit more nuance ... The Netherlands has a large minority ... 25% with migration background ... very small numbers who participate in politics ...

Added this post:

    The Netherlands is calling for an armistice and dialogue. Everything must be done to prevent civilian casualties.

Original tweet was in first person ... not a leader with integrity.
