Geert Wilders stands down as city councillor in The Hague

24 06 2010


Anti-Islam party leader Geert Wilders is to stand down as a councillor in The Hague because of the pressure of his parliamentary work.

Wilders was elected to the council on preference votes in the March local elections.

The PVV leader says he has his hands full with the national parliament, now the party has 24 MPs, and cannot remain on the city council.

It is not clear if the two other PVV MPs who have seats on the council in The Hague and Almere will continue to do two jobs.

Geert Wilders: Change Jordan’s name to Palestine

23 06 2010


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. “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.”

Geert Wilders’ Mohammed cartoon plan scuppered

22 06 2010

Via Radio Netherlands Worldwide:

An election stunt by Dutch daily De Telegraaf has gone awry as Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders is accusing the paper of censorship.

De Telegraaf has offered five party leaders one page each in the Monday edition of the paper, which they can edit according to their own ideas.

Mr Wilders was planning to include a cartoon depicting the prophet Mohammed on his page, where the anti-Islam politician wanted to discuss freedom of expression. Telegraaf Editor Sjuul Paradijs has said such cartoons are “needlessly offensive”.

Freedom of expression
The Dutch maker of the disputed cartoon, who is using the pseudonym Nekschot, was briefly arrested in 2008 on charges of discrimination and incitement to violence. Mr Wilders and other politicians were outraged at this arrest, quoting the constitutionally enshrined freedom of expression. The public prosecutor’s decision to investigate Mr Nekschot was considered ill-judged and premature; no court case followed the arrest.

Mr Wilders has told the press he will fill his page in the Monday Telegraaf, but leave an empty space where the cartoon would have been, captioning it with a brief explanation. He will publish the cartoon, however, on the Freedom Party website.
