May 30, 2007


By Richard, Aruban Boycott Member

May 30, 2007 (4:30 a.m.) I’m on here early, after a restless night. I slept fitfully, with phantoms and phantasms racing through my mind. Now we’re into the third year that Natalee has been missing.

Yesterday I got an e-mail from someone who has been active in the case since early days, and is close to the family. I was told something I hadn’t known; it appears that a systematic effort has been made to erase information from the Internet about the case. For example, a significant number of articles related to Paulus van der Sloot’s trip to Miami (something that’s gaining importance in my mind) have been altered, erased, or booby-trapped with viruses.

No joke.

Some people who did research have had their computers contaminated with viruses picked up from articles online. Anyone still think this case is simple? We continue to disagree about what happened on that fateful night (morning, actually) two years ago. This is only proper, since none of us knows. But we also see there are hate sites that champion the suspects and defame the family. We see trolls here … no need to talk of them! We are besieged with arguments about Dutch law that sometimes defy common sense, and ignore the obvious lesson that has been hammered into us over the last two years: where evil and amoral people hold power in an unstable regime, the laws are theirs to sway, defy, ignore and disregard. Who can doubt that the Aruba regime is in this category?

All eyes now are on the Dutch. We know little or nothing of what they are doing: what we DO know is that so far, at any rate, their searches and their soil samples and whatever else they have done has given us … NOTHING. It took them some seven or eight months of re-reading documents before they even got to Aruba.

The Holloway Twittys, once they heard that Natalee was missing, got on a plane and found out more than the Arubans or Dutch have. In the face of growing hostility from the Aruban ruling clique, volunteers, mostly Americans, scoured Aruban land and waters searching for evidence. In the filthiest of conditions, American groups did the job of the Arubans and Dutch, looking through garbage landfills, going diving, undertaking private searches. Remember, in Aruba, as in Saba (where Joel Gove vanished at the end of December, and where his body still remains, as far as I know, because the locals and the Dutch won’t be bothered to look) the Arubans and Dutch mostly stood by, scoffed and sneered (and charged high prices for what they could charge for) while our people gritted their teeth and did THEIR job.

Amidst all the tragedy, heartbreak and bewilderment, the tone of the Arubans remained constant. Give us your money, Americans! You can be prey to our people, you can go missing and we won’t care, you can be thrown in jail for any pretext … but we will whine and chatter, beg and grovel for your dollars, because your money is what we want. We the people ignore this lesson at our peril.

Beth Twitty asked us, early on, to consider boycotting all the Netherlands Antilles islands. Whatever the pettifoggers may say about separate status, these include the ABCs: Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao. Also Saba, and some others.

It is the boycott, and ONLY the boycott, that caused the Aruban merchants to turn to their government in desperation, seeking some answers in Natalee’s case. We can’t say what will come of all this. But always, remember Natalee. Remember Amy Bradley. Remember Joel Gove. Remember Tracy Allen of Boston, raped on Aruba only to see the police do nothing. Remember the woman kidnapped from the Carlos ‘n’ Charlies parking lot in 2001. Remember the American couple drugged in one of the casinos … the husband was left unconscious in a back room, while the wife was taken to the desert and raped. Remember all of these, and resolve to observe the boycott, and promote it. That is the ONE tool we have.

Let our resolution never fail: No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

In the plain world view, people realize May 30 and Holland are the rebirth date and place of the Nazi, when people see the Dutch are so persisitent in their No Body No Case doctrine. It took the Allied troops to storm the Nazi Germany death camps to find the shocking discoveries of the near death prisoners of hate and discriminations, the human organs experiment and harvest hospitals, the massive gas chambers and the bodies incinerators. Only a prostitute dictatorship queen bea regime can ignore the suffering of the common Dutch people, and provide comfort and shelter to a merciless killer Joran. This dynasty insanity must be stopped, said by the other kingdom states in Europe. They are asking God to raise an army to conquer Holland and exile the queen, and welcome the new Dutch christian king. The current queen is a julia renfro atheist worshipper. JR is daughter witch of the Aruban voodo god Bifron who feeds on corpses in Aruba Nord cemeteries.

Never trust Greta. She is not great. She is a trader to Beth. Greta is coming for a final kill on Beth and Natalee. Greta wants to write her own book and movie screen plays. She is a glorifier and worshipper of Joran. Joran is her Dutch idol.

Greta is Dutch. Julia Renfro is probably 100% Dutch by now. Only dirty hand Dutch helping Dutch friends themselves. The color people in Aruba are not considered Dutch. They are the islanders only hired for the hotel cleaners and food servers. Dutch is currently a dirty word in American teens vocabulary. They are rapping the Dutch now. The Dutch is Fing Bad Boy, rollover man. Aint no friend of me you Dutch fool, said Mr. T. Dutch is bad, Dutch is evil. Don't go to Aruba. Don't turn on Greta bitch. Yall hear.

Joshua, I'd think your time would be better spent - since you are IN Portugal - working to find that beautiful British baby who was abducted there.

Joshua was only pointing out the fact there is a website in Portugal that links to this blog. That is where he found Boycott Aruba.

Sorry to let you know, but there ARE others in the world that CARE about others than themselves. If you checked out his blog through a translator you can tell he is just as passionate about what affects him, his country and the world.

Please, Please, Please. Also do not forget Willard "Bud" Larson, who went missing without a trace in Aruba in 1999. His family was treated the same as the Holloway/Twittys were. Aruba should not be allowed to keep Natalee and Bud, let them come HOME.
