Former Netherlands V-P is Ambassador for Peace

A report from SikhNet last month:

On 21-11-2007, the Dutch unit of Universal Peace Federation UPF-NL also called as the Inter-religious and International Federation for World Peace, organised a special function to honour prominent citizens of the Netherlands in the Glass House of Almere. This function had also the approval and co-operation of the Town Hall of Almere. It should be noted that Mrs. Annemarie Jorritsma, now Mayor of Almere since 2003 was formerly Minister of Economics Affairs, National Highways and Water System and also vice Minister President of the Netherlands, are [sic] also Ambassadors For Peace.

Six citizens of the Nertherlands were given the award, including a Sikh leader named Sardar Bhupinder Singh Holland, and a local Christian minister named “Mr. Ver Bass” (or “Ver Bas”) – one wonders if he’ll be following Rev Moon’s recommendation to church leaders that they should remove crosses from their churches, or agrees with Moon’s claim that “Christianity has failed”.

Jorritsma (also known as Anne Marie Jorritsma-Lebbink) is an odd choice to get hitched onto the Moon bandwagon; a couple of years ago the centre-right politician advocated providing Dutch soldiers serving abroad with prostitutes.
