|Description||PM Dries van Agt was set-up (after a decade-long power struggle) to work with a lot of deep politicians, spooks, Israel's liaison Joop den Uyl, the Dutch Operation Gladio boss, a corrupt royal family and NATO. He never had a chance.|
In October 1981, Juliana appointed deep politicians Victor Halberstadt and Cees de Galan to mediate the Dutch Cabinet crisis, this crisis is now remembered with the official narrative as a feud between the PM and progressive Dries van Agt and his CDA-fraction and the socialists in the coalition headed by deputy prime-minister left-wing Joop den Uyl and his PVDA party. Following the 1973 Oil crisis and the major inflation and loss of jobs, the two could not reach an agreement on social reforms. Other forgotten details include the participation of the NATO Double-Track Decision of 1979, PVDA members wanted to participate in a protest in 1981 with 400.000 civilians in Amsterdam as other protests regarding the Iran-Iraq war and the 1980s Afghan war were also becoming political hot topics. In a country suffering from pillarisation and the Dutch massive spikes in (at that time legal) drug trade, many overlook the lines connecting what may have been a coup.
Following the massive peace-protests Wikipedia writes: "Mainly as a result of these plans and the dissatisfaction with the nuclear weapons policy, the Provincial Council elections for the PvdA held on 24 March 1982 were dramatic. The party lost eight percent compared to 1981. D66 also deteriorated. Opposition party VVD, on the other hand, won enormously and even became the country's second party. The election defeat further reduced the PvdA's willingness to compromise. As a result, that party was not only opposed to the CDA, but also to its former ally D66."
Another theory regarding this crisis was that Van Agt was removed by the Dutch Deep state that backed Den Uyl - who's Defence minister Henk Vredeling played a vital early role in stashing and secretly transporting munition without (official) knowledge of the Dutch government daily for the Yom Kippur War at the HQ of the Dutch Air Force and Dutch Army during his first term as PM. Den Uyl - who has a picture in his bedroom and is a close friend of Israeli PM Golda Meir) who was PM from 1973 until 1977 and was a supporter of Israel - was deemed more in line with Israel's and their geopolitical influence - as van Agt was deemed "too risky".
Van Agt's is most known for his outspoken or sometimes explosive character; he remarked in the 1970s that the last remaining known Dutch convicted Nazis in prison should be released because he did not consciously experienced the war and "was aryan", he relocated the Dutch embassy to Tel Aviv and told Dutch media in 1982 that "Israel must not think that with provocations and attacks it will reach peace (...) as with gun-violence, unilateral acts and breaking international law and not complying with decisions made by the international community, such as those that have been enacted by the UN" and actively supported sending and keeping UN-troops in Lebanon during the 1982 Lebanon War. Van Agt became a staunch supporter of Palestine and hard critic of Israel and remained it well into the 2020s. Meanwhile Joop den Uyl spoke on the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism as the speaker for the "Dutch response" to "terrorism".
Van Agt was replaced internally by his own party with Ruud Lubbers and Lubbers changed the stance on Israel quite drastically........ he and the Dutch became a staunch supporter of Israel. Coincidence? The Dutch Zionists do not think so.
Interestingly enough Van Agt's cabinet had a lot of politicians connected to deep state milieu not known at that time, Van Agt; 1 time bilderberger Max van der Stoel - head of the Dutch-Gladio division from 1982, Hans van Mierlo - 1 time bilderberg, started - with the future mayor of Amsterdam - a "shadow government" modelled on the British in 1971, publicly advocated for nuclear weapons against the Soviet Union and Hans van den Broek alongside Joop den Uyl. After Van Agt was put out of power a lot of privatization was slowly introduced.
The notorious Ruud Lubbers - coming from the same party as Van Agt - acquired the telling title of being PM of the same party that headed the last coalition, something that had not happened since 1965 when Gladio-agents from the Dutch Deep state were implicated in having attempted to assassinate Prime-Minister Cals. All Dutch Prime Ministers since 1982 have visited the Bilderberg: (Ruud Lubbers (1982-1994), Wim Kok (1994-2002), Jan Peter Balkenende (2002-2010), Mark Rutte (2010-).
