Hague court jails man for anti-Semitic T-shirts

(JTA) — A court in The Hague sentenced a man to two years in jail for stocking T-shirts featuring anti-Semitic slogans.

The appeals court in The Hague ruled Tuesday that the T-shirts, with a slogan that read “Destroy Zionism” and the image of a gun pointing at a hasidic Jew, were an insult to the Jewish community and an incitement to hatred and discrimination.

The man, 37, also had neo-Nazi T-shirts in his possession.

The more than 40 T-shirts were seized during a raid of the man’s home in connection with a drunken attack on another man.
