    The digital Dutch newspaper, De Stem, ran an article about the pamphlets posted around Wouw, calling them “fear” pamphlets.

    It is unknown how many residents of Wouw have seen the “fear” pamphlets. The digital paper blamed the pamphlet-maker for “inciting fear”, but did not comment on the original text.

    The verses read as follows: “[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, ‘I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.'”

    Hadith 4:269. Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: “The Prophet said, ‘War is deceit.'”

    The “scary posters” containing the chilling verses of the Quran that incite violence, were taken down on the same evening either by a “fearless” inhabitant or an illiterate passerby.

    On Friday evening in the cafe in Wouw, a MeetUp will be held where Reverend J. Klaver will reassure the citizens that the Quoranic Sura 8:12 is not a threat.
