The Netherlands’ largest newspaper called it the “trial of the century.” It will begin on January 20, two months before municipal elections in which Wilders’s Freedom party is involved.

 The Brussels Journal – Who is Crazy in Holland Today?

Last week, an article by the cultural anthropologist Lizzy van Leeuwen in the leftist weekly De Groene Amsterdammer (“The Green Amsterdammer”) caused a stir. She explains Wilders’s “rabid anti-immigration and anti-Islam ideas” as stemming from his ethnic mix. The article is considered to be “an intellectual attempt to analyze what drives Wilders.” According to Mrs. van Leeuwen his statements – plus the fact that he dies his hair peroxide blond – are connected to his genealogical link to Indonesia, the largest Islamic country in the world.

Of Barack Obama it is said that his worldview has been influenced by his childhood years in Indonesia, the former Dutch colony that is also said to have shaped Geert Wilders’s worldview. Van Leeuwen reveals that Wilders’s maternal grandmother, Johanna Meijer, was a member of a prominent Jewish-Indonesian family. Her husband, Johan Ording, was a regional financial administrator in the Dutch colony. According to van Leeuwen, the latter was fired while on leave in the Netherlands and reduced to poverty when the government refused to give him a pension. Van Leeuwen says that Wilders is out to avenge the injustice done to his granddad.

The Indonesian colonial background of his grandfather is also said to explain Wilders’s “far-right” opinions. She claims that in the 1930s many colonial administrators sympathized with the Dutch Nazi party NSB. After the independence of Indonesia in 1949, they were forced to leave for the Netherlands. This frustrating experience led to their attachment to patriotism and European values. Moreover, they harbored strong sentiments against Islam, the dominant religion in Indonesia. In Wilders’s case, his anti-Islamic and pro-Israeli feelings were exacerbated by the Jewish origin of his grandmother.

Van Leeuwen’s revelations – if true, because Wilders has not responded to them and keeps his private life absolutely private – do not explain, however, how Wilders’s father can have harbored sympathies for the anti-Semitic NSB while being married to a Jewish wife. That accusation makes her thesis highly unlikely, if not ridiculous.

It is astonishing, however, that leftist intellectuals in Europe no longer see a contradiction between Nazism and pro-Jewish positions. Indeed, Israel is consistently depicted by the European left as a racist Nazi-like state. Meanwhile, the Dutch media criticize Wilders for not disclosing his genealogy. “Wilders hides his family roots,” a major (center-right) Dutch newspaper headlined.

No-one ever demands (would even dream of demanding) that a leftist politician, even one from the far-left, disclose who his ancestors are in order to allow anthropologists to come up with an explanation for his crazy political views. However, a politician on the right, who is pro-Israel and opposes the Islamization of Europe, is treated like a weirdo whose “ethnic mix” has to be researched in order to explain his “incorrect” ideas. When he insists on keeping his family out of the limelight, he is accused of trying to hide something and has the media delving into the lives of his long deceased parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, trying to find the Jew, the Nazi, preferably both, and preferably both combined in one person.

Goin’ to court

13 09 2009

A date has been set, and Geert Wilders is going to court. From Expatica.com:

A court in the Netherlands has ordered far-right politician Geert Wilders to stand trial on 20 January 2010. The leader of the Freedom Party is charged with inciting discrimination and hatred with his statements about Islam and Muslims.

The Netherlands – A court in the Netherlands has ordered far-right politician Geert Wilders to stand trial on 20 January 2010.

The leader of the Freedom Party is charged with inciting discrimination and hatred with his statements about Islam and Muslims.
 
In an interview in the conservative De Telegraaf newspaper, Wilders says it’s regrettable he has to face trial for what he says are merely political statements.

The lawyer defending him is the well-known Amsterdam attorney Bram Moszkowicz.

Wilders says he is certain he will be acquitted.

According to Dr. Lizzy van Leeuwen Geert Wilders‘ grandmother on his mother’s side is Johanna Meijer a Jewess. The maternal grandfather of Mr. Wilders married Johanna Meijer in Indonesia during the colonial era. Appearently the Meijer family was a well-know Dutch-Jewish family in Indonesia.

The article charges into the ridiculous when Dr. van Leeuwen also states that Mr. Wilders peroxides his hair in order to hide his non-white Indonesian ancestry. O, and Dr. van Leeuwen mentions that many Dutch people in the Dutch East Indies supported the Dutch Facist Movement (NSB). What the ….?

Anyway. Here is a picture of Wilders as an 18 year old on his Kibbutz in Israel. With his original hair colour.

The media shills and Islamic machinery in the U.S. never expected that G-d, Rifqa and the people would prevail upon the powers that be in Florida. So now they are in overdrive.

The National Post – Islam film backlash feared: reports:

Canadian security officials closely monitored last year’s release of a Dutch film about Islam, fearing it could spark violent protests, documents released under the Access to Information Act show.

The National Post has obtained copies of seven intelligence reports, circulated by Ottawa last year, that warn of a possible backlash against the documentary Fitna and Danish cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

“There are concerns that reprinting of the cartoons and the release of the movie could provoke the kind of violent reaction which occurred within some Muslim communities overseas when the cartoons were originally published,” one of the reports says.

The Integrated Threat Assessment Centre, the federal agency that wrote the reports, typically tracks terrorist threats but the documents show that during four months in 2008 its focus turned to cartoons and movies and whether they would incite Muslims to violence.
