Coalition talks in the Netherlands are going into their fourth month today as royally appointed negotiator Herman Tjeenk Willink is sounding out party leaders.

On Thursday afternoon Mr Tjeenk Willink is receiving Mark Rutte of the free-market liberal VVD, Christian Democrat interim leader Maxime Verhagen, and Geert Wilders of the anti-Islam Freedom Party.

Cabinet negotiator Herman Tjeenk Willink is to meet the queen early on Monday morning to discuss the next stage in the cabinet formation process.

Tjeenk Willink spoke to all the party leaders last week. He had two rounds of talks with the leaders of the VVD Liberals, the Christian Democrats and anti-Islam PVV, who are hoping to form a right-wing government.

Meanwhile, via Monsters & Critics: Dutch mediator: Wilders should resume coalition talks.

Finally, Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Sept. 13th:

The conservative VVD, Freedom Party (PVV) and the Christian Democrats (CDA) can resume their government coalition talks which stalled two weeks ago.

On Monday morning, Herman Tjeenk Willink officially advised Queen Beatrix to re-appoint Ivo Opstelten to oversee the continued talks on a VVD-CDA minority government which will be supported in parliament by the PVV. Later in the day, the leaders of the three parties resumed their negotiations chaired by Mr Opstelten.

More to come, I’m sure…

It wasn’t until yesterday that I got to hear it on the web. I knew it would be great, so I was already so angry about that unbelievable media blackout that was orchestrated to prevent the truth this brave freedom fighter speaks.

It was an inspiring speech by an inspiring, great man.

Long live Geert, who defends us and speaks for freedom-loving Americans.

Too bad our state-run press/media do not think truth is newsworthy. They want us to be demoralized and submit to the Islam’s brutality and intimidation. They are corrupt, collusive, lying mouthpieces for tyranny.
What treachery. Thomas Jefferson’s dream is dead. Martin Luther’s dream is no longer possible within a systematic treachery such as we see now.

But, ‘Truth is truth, til the end of reckoning’. So do not be hopeless. Just start reading your Quran (in chronological order). And anyone who only has 12 minutes can still watch Fitna for the basic truth of Islam.
