Gilders on Israel...

I wish him well in today's election in the Netherlands...
Geert Wilders, who is demanding a halt to immigration from Muslim countries as the centerpiece of his campaign for the Dutch prime ministership, has hailed Israel for “fighting the jihad” and warned that “the West is next” if Israel is unsuccessful.

“Israel is the canary in the coal mine,” Wilders said in a recent telephone interview with The Jerusalem Post, ahead of Wednesday’s elections in the Netherlands. “The jihad against Israel isn’t against Israel only. It’s against the whole West.”

He described the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as ideological rather than territorial.

“If Israel gave, say, the West Bank to the Palestinians, this would not bring peace,” Wilders said. “The next step would be for the Palestinians to claim that Ashkelon, Ashdod, Haifa and Jerusalem are the next ‘settlements’ to be conquered.”

He added: “I always say that parents everywhere in the West sleep well at night because parents in Israel lie awake at night – because their children are fighting the jihad."

“You’re fighting our fight,” he said. “And after Israel, we are next.”

Sane? He's immigration policy is the exact same as the BNP who are sidelined as racist loonies. Are you a racist loony?

Wilders is not far right. He's a libertarian who is a strong supporter of gay rights.
