Dutch MP Geert Wilders flies to New York to share his views on the Ground Zero mosque, to the great consternation of his government.
“[Imam Rauf] refuses to condemn terrorists because, and I quote, ‘terrorism is a very complex question.'”
“His blame the West, blame America message is an insult.”
“And I quote him again, ‘Osama Bin Laden is made in the USA’.”
If you’ve been wondering what Geert’s been up to since the elections last June when he doubled his party’s number of seats in Parliament:
Victory for Geert Wilders and PVV in Dutch minority ruling coalition
After weeks of discussions among the leading Dutch political parties following the June 9th general elections, a minority conservative ruling coalition has been formed. This gives Geert Wilders’ PVV Freedom party some important leverage. This is largely due to the significant seat tallies, 24 that the PVV garnered in the new Hague Parliament, as well as the significant continuing rise in Wilders’ and the PVV popularity among voters in the Netherlands. That popularity, we believe, is based on voters concerns on the threat of Islamization to Holland, basic Dutch and Western Judeo-Christian values.
