He had also discussed founding a branch of Wilders’ Freedom Party in Germany.

Are all the politicians afraid of the Arabs that threaten us or do they get money from them, to hush up? Amazing how intolerant people are allowed to do anything, but those that don’t accept such behaviour are the so called trouble makers and threatened by their own government/people? Keep fighting, we must not let Islam take over the world.
