From Ynet via Loewenstein:
Of Geert 'I'm in love with Israel' Wilders you really get the impression that he's a buffoon of unprecedented proportions of the kind that worryingly seems to increasingly make inroads into the political culture of quite a few European countries. Wilders claims to have nothing against Muslims (presumably like Griffin who 'has nothing against people of colour' - oh, and Muslims too) but considers the Qu'ran comparable to Mein Kampf and calls for it to be banned from Europe...
Like many deeply Conservative politicians with things to say about Israel/Palestine, Wilders, presumably for demagogic reasons, resorts to promoting 'remedies' he knows damn well aren't going to work and won't be implemented before all hell freezes over.
Geert Wilders, who leads the right-wing Party for Freedom (PVV) in Holland, said last week he believes Jordan should be renamed Palestine. The Jordanian government responded by saying Wilders’ speech was reminiscent of the Israeli right wing.
“Jordan is Palestine,” said Wilders, who heads the third-largest party in Holland. “Changing its name to Palestine will end the conflict in the Middle East and provide the Palestinians with an alternate homeland.” Wilders added that Israel deserved a special status in the Dutch government because it was fighting for Jerusalem in its name. “If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism,” he said. “There has been an independent Palestinian state since 1946, and it is the kingdom of Jordan.” Wilders also called on the Dutch government to refer to Jordan as Palestine and move its embassy to Jerusalem.
The PVV has been going from strength to strength, going recently from 9 parliamentary seats to 24...
Sensing that Melanie Phillips might rise to the bait, I took a quick look and Bingo! Phillips is normally hard to pin down for her anti-Arab racism because she usually carefully skirts around the Palestinian issue. But people who consider the Occupied West Bank 'Disputed Territory' usually aren't great fans any solution that involves/includes Palestinians. Does that make her a racist? Of course. It means that in Phillips' mind Palestinian rights must be negated because unlike the Zionists they're not a Real People (with a Real Religion and a Real Language). Politely put, the Palestinians must make room for the Real Indigenous People of Eretz Israel. Put slightly more brutally: the sandniggers must clear off for the Greater Good of the new Herrenvolk.
Here she is, replete the infamous 'Trouw' quote (an 'argument' I really thought had been relegated to the open sewers of the American Conservative Zionist blogosphere a long time ago).
It's official Mad Mel, you're a transferist! Arabs to the East!
