Yasmina Haifi, who works for the Dutch Justice Ministry’s National Cyber Security Centre, made the controversial statement on Twitter, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported.
Referring to IS by their former name, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), she tweeted: “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name.”
Ms Haifi later removed the original message and said: “I realize the political sensitivity in connection with my work. That was not my intention.”
It is now believed that she has been suspended from her position.

The delivery of this child is a testament to the professionalism and dedication of the hospital’s staff. Three days earlier, Israel attacked the hospital with tank shells. At least five Palestinians were reported dead.
