Former European Commissioner Frits Bolkestein, who is often cited by Geert Wilders as his biggest hero and mentor, has suddenly reappeared out of obscurity, only to feed the growing hatred towards Moroccans in The Netherlands and crank up the already heightened level of fear among Jews a few notches higher.
His outrageous statement calling on practicing Jews to migrate to Israel and the USA - citing the growing antisemitism among Dutch-Moroccans as the reason - has caused an uproar among his former colleagues in parliament and ticked off some prominent members of the Jewish community as well. Oddly enough even Geert Wilders disagreed with Bolkestein on this one, saying that it's Mococcans who are guilty of antisemitism who should migrate and not the Jews.
Meanwhile, Geert Wilders himself was busy making his own outrageous statements while on an official visit in Israel recently, saying that Jordan should absorb Palestinian refugees and rename itself Palestine. In addition to that, he urged Israel to build more settlements in "Judea and Samaria", aka the West Bank, as a strategic move towards self-defense, and it's not the first time he's said such either.
All I can say about this insanely fascist conduct by Dutch politicians, who seem to be going out of their way to cause strife...that it ultimately boils down to the Dutch government's need to grow a spine, enforce its existing laws against hate speech and discrimination and start putting national interest and domestic stability first and foremost. Enough already!

In an interview with Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, Anti-Defamation
League spokesperson Oren Segal said:
"In our opinion it would be in very bad taste if someone with Wilders'
reputation comes to speak in New York to spread his message of intolerance and
hatred, especially on September 11.
Mr Segal also said that "it's a flagrant violation of freedom of religion,
which is one of the founding principles of this country, and the "Stop the
Islamization of America" organization that invited Wilders to speak is misusing
concerns about Muslim extremism to spread more intolerance".
Meanwhile, Geert Wilders still insists that his Gound Zero show must go on and has also added an interview with David Letterman to his NY 9/11 itinerary.
And in Dutch news today all the buzz is about "Wilders the Movie", a VPRO documentary about Geert Wilders' life, which originally included an anonymous source sharing rumors about Wilders' sex-life and frequent use of prostitutes, but the segment was forced to be edited out before the show airs in Holland on Sunday September 12th.
See YouTube trailer where said "rumors" remain unedited:
Also today, Geert Wilders was officially notified that he's expected to stand trial for incitement to hatred and hate speech charges on October 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 19, after which the verdict will be announced on November 2, which also happens to be the Anniversary of Theo van Gogh's murder by Muslim extremist Mohamed Bouyeri. Needless to say, Wilders is not too happy about this and he's already complaining about an "unfair trial", because he was only granted 3 witnesses by the court, instead of 18 witnesses and experts as he requested.
I'm afraid this is not going to end well, no matter how you look at it. It's going to get plain old ugly before it gets any better, simply because Geert Wilders serves a higher purpose (.....fill in the dots) that seems to be beyond the reach of any democratic process. But who knows, maybe the justice system will prevail.
The fact still remains that Geert Wilders is not only the fascist leader of the Dutch Freedom Party,
but also its sole member - who is bent on driving his self-made fascist apparatus on pure hatred
and chauvinistic intolerance towards immigrants, especially Moroccans and
Muslims. He insists on retaining absolute dictatorial control and continues to
call all the shots, despite persistent pressure from his following, asking
him to allow others to become members of his party as well, as it is standard practice
in the democratic process.
The Dutch ungoverment continues to fool around - 2-1/2 months after the elections - while being hopelessly indecisive about the formation of a new parliament that includes one of our time's biggest dictators.
People of the free world, is this what we really want?
They both use the same methods. They rile people up against each other
with fear-mongering and others will see this as a way to legitimize violence.
That was the case in Bosnia and can do the same with us. Civilization is but a
Bosnia was, just like The Netherlands, known for its tolerance for centuries. And Look What happened. No wonder all major European countries are
seriously concerned about the formation in the Netherlands.
Oostlander refers to an interview from 2004 where Wilders said that "racial
riots are not necessarily a bad thing, because they can be a wake-up call to The
That is such a sick thought.
Wilders latest appearance professing hate speech against Muslims on Australian TV:
Dutch politician Geert Wilders says he doesn't care what anyone says, he will
do what he feels like and he feels pretty good about flying to New York to give
a speech at Ground Zero on September 11th, where a protest will be held against the planned
construction of the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque".
He says: "It's an important speech, no one can stop me. I'm the one who decides what I can
or can't do.....No mosque at Ground Zero! Everyone knows what the Party Of
Freedom stands for." Via Telegraaf.nl
At least one Moroccan in Holland volunteers to leave the country, which he says he loves so much that he's willing to disappear for at least a year to help contribute to solving the Moroccan problem in Holland.
I'm not sure what to think of it. Is this really a good way to solve problems? Isn't this an easy cop out, which in the end makes everyone look bad? What if this is just a promotional stunt to get him a free trip to a dream resort? I have mixed emotions over this.....
