Netherlands Elections: Anti-Islam parties expected to gain in Dutch vote

Dutch anti-Islam party set to double in election

THE HAGUE, The Netherlands—”The sluice gates are wide open,” Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders says in a campaign video that shows planes landing in Holland as women in headscarves outnumber natives in shopping street scenes.

“Every day we are confronted with mass immigration: headscarves, burqas, minarets, social security dependence, crime … it never ends,” Wilders laments as dramatic music plays in the background of the clip released ahead of June 9 parliamentary elections.

“Whole neighborhoods are being Islamized.”

Pollsters expect Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV), to double its strength from nine to 18 MPs in the 150 seat parliament on a ticket of halting the “Islamic invasion”—enough to make it a potential ruling coalition candidate.

“Wilders exerts a big influence on these elections,” political analyst Martin Rosema of Twente University told AFP.

Wilders’ bold move onto the shaky ground of multi-cultural tolerance, for long a matter of Dutch pride, “has prompted other parties to adopt a stricter approach to security and the integration of Muslims,” said Rosema.

Many parties’ manifestos now propose an immigration cut, mainly for the low skilled, and harsher treatment of foreign criminals.

Wilders’ PVV came first in Almere and second in The Hague in local elections in March—the only cities it contested in its first-ever municipal campaign.

But the PVV finds itself in opposition in both cities as other parties formed coalitions to exclude it, a situation observers expect to be repeated on the national stage.

Wilders, who calls his political enemies “multi-cultural cuddlers,” claims that 40 percent of social security payments go to non-Western immigrants and that people of Moroccan origin were crime suspects five times as often as indigenous Dutch.

“What the Netherlands needs is a stop to immigration for people from Muslim countries,” says the politicianwho has called for a “head rag tax” on headscarves.

Twenty percent of the Netherlands’ 16.5 million-strong population is of immigrant origin.

“There is a significant group of voters for whom immigration is the most important issue,” said political science professor Philip van Praag of the University of Amsterdam.

“They believe that people of Turkish and Moroccan background and Islamic belief are damaging Dutch society. They regard them as a threat, especially in the form of criminality perceived to be committed by immigrant youths.”

Due to go on trial in October for anti-Muslim incitement, Wilders campaigns for a ban on headscarves for public servants and a moratorium on the erection of mosques in his bid to “stop the Islamization of the Netherlands.”

Wilders, whose 17-minute movie “Fitna” was termed “offensively anti-Islamic” by UN chief Ban Ki-moon, calls Islam a fascist religion and seeks the banning of the Koran, which he has likened to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf.”

At his most popular some months ago, when polls put him at number one, Wilders has slipped to fourth place as the global economic crisis starts affecting Dutch pockets, analysts say.

Budget cuts will be the big issue of the electoral campaign.

But 46-year-old Wilders, with his characteristic shock of bleached-blond hair, has been unable to shake his single-issue image.

In a recent television debate, he elicited cheers from the audience when he proposed less immigration as a solution to social security shortages, crime, and the public deficit—prompting labor PvdA party leader Job Cohen to call him “a threat to our constitutional democracy.”

Wilders, known for his inflammatory one-liners, including a recent reference to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a “total freak,” is the sole member of his party.

He appoints all PVV office-bearers and has recently come under fire from within the party for his undemocratic grip.

Wilders is under 24-hour protection because of  (Mohammedan) death threats.

Dutch voters seeking fiscal discipline and tighter immigration laws appear ready to back a new right-wing government in a national election Wednesday – and may even double their support for strident anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders.


  • Painful: Pseudo Intellectual Ian Buruma tries to smear Geert Wilders (again) with a lengthy SPIEGEL essay, still hot & bothered by his hairstyle and fantasies of the Return of the Bourgeoisie

An immigrant-wary, free-market party that hasn’t led a government in nearly 100 years – the Peoples Party for Freedom and Democracy, known as the VVD – has taken a commanding lead in the polls.

That positions Mark Rutte, its 43-year-old leader, to be a potential prime minister and form the country’s next cabinet.

Rutte has not ruled out bringing Wilders into a governing coalition.

The country’s fourth election since 2002 comes after the Labor Party brought down Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende’s centrist government in March over its refusal to extend the Dutch military contribution to fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

But Afghanistan has barely been mentioned in the three-month campaign, as budget cuts rose swiftly up the agenda and immigration remained a key issue.

Wilders, the maverick politician who denounces Islam as a fascist religion, seized the spotlight early with a program that included a tax on headscarves worn by Muslim women.

  1. I see the fabled ultra-tolerance of the Dutch stretched to breaking point, and about time too!!! I wish Geert Wilders and the PVV every success possible in these elections. With a big enough win in the Netherlands, Geert could actually become the leading light throughout Europe in the fightback against both the threat of islam and the destructive and suicidal nature of the EU!

    A true hero, and one that deserves every patriotic merit for putting his life on the line to stand up for what he believes in.

  2. The mohammedan answer when confronted with the truth – use illegal means to silence the truth, usually violence.

  3. The world is in chaos. Before we start pointing our fingers at people, we need to first check ourselves and analyse the causes of world problem. Justice delayed is justice denied and justice denied is justice frustrated. Today the entire christian world is pointing fingers at the Islamic world and Muslims throughout the globe as terrorist and fanatics.
    The CIA, FBI, Israel and America being the world number one TERRORIST are never been criticized for their destruction. Israel and America have weapons of mas destruction and yet nobody speaks about it. The Israelis who were arrested in Dubai having Australia passport and were responsible for the assassination of the Palestinian Hamas member was an act of terrorism and nothing so far has been done or said about it.
    If I can’t confront you because of your evil deeds to me, I will have no alternative but to device all possible means to retaliate. Leave Islam and Mohammedan, they are not Fascist. What you need to do is to ask yourselves about the causes of the problems and try to find solution to them for there is no problem without a causative agent and there is no problem without a solution. Once that is done, we are saw of achieving total world peace.
    I love Netherlands. It is one of the world’s most peaceful countries and I envy their educational standards.
    Although I am a Muslim, I love world peace and therefore I am against any type of destruction of lives and properties. No man can create a drop of blood or flesh, so why destroy what you cannot create. Those who are on it, be you Mohammedan, America, Israel, FBI,CIA etc all of you are of the devil, you neither belong to Islam, Christianity or any other religion.
    My view of the problems of the world especially war everywhere is due to supremacy down-syndrome between the so called West and the Middle East. Stop this and we get world peace.
    Mr. Wilders You have spoken but please try to reason out the causes of the problems and try to harmonize them before you take a stringent measures, otherwise those who are supporting you will be the same to crucify you at the end. Think before you say and do something.

  4. Ismail,
    There is a huge list of muslim acts of terrorism..thousands of them since Sept 11..and many of muslims killing other muslims..It is muslims who are the aggressors..The Bible tells people to love ..the Koran teaches people to hate…You can try to dress the facts up but they speak for themselves.

  5. * Today the entire christian world is pointing fingers at the Islamic world and Muslims throughout the globe as terrorist and fanatics.

    I find that very hard to believe. You been pinching old Get Smart lines?

    “”Would you believe that this yacht happens to be surrounded by the 7th Fleet?”

    The islamic world is following a false prophet to destruction, with or without Christians or anyone else pointing fingers at it, though the usual response is fawning, craven cowardice, dhimmitude and “hate crime” prosecutions of anyone daring to “point the finger” at islam.

    Mo lied, people died!

  6. Hi! Mullah Lodabullah and Theresa. Thank you for your response to my comment. Theresa you spoke of the bible preaching peace and love to which you claim the Quran differs. You may be right in your opinion but I want to assure you that there is no chapter or verse that preaches your perception in the Quran. And I still want to maintain my words, that be you Muslim, christian, America, CIA, FBI, ISRAEL, pagan to whatever category you belong to, you are an image of the creator therefore you have no right to destroy what you cannot great. Those who are on it are of the devil.
    You are talking of Christians to be peace loving people, would you tell me the people who killed Malcolm X in America? Because of his believe and principles he diverted from Christianity to Islam and because he started opposing their doctrine based on racial discrimination, the end result was to silent him. Also look at Martin Luther King, he too suffered the same from the Othodox. America aggression in japan in 1949, Irag, Afghanistan, North Korea and the support they are given to Taiwan against mainland China ect, is that not an act of terrorism. Till the end of the world, the Muslim population will continue to superceed.
    When did terrorism start? It is an American term based on their interest areas. Look at the recent development in Afghanistan. They went there with a devilish motive to fight terrorism while they had a hidden agenda of exploiting the natural resources of that nation. How do you call that? A lesson of thought for you.
    I still remain opposed to any type of destruction perpetrated by a mortal who dwell on earth for a short period and will return where he came from(dust) forever until the day of reckoning. God, father in heaven creator and everlasting, have mercy on those that are destroying your creation based on their quest for power and supremacy, for you are the most supreme above all else.
    I thank you all and God Almighty Allah bless us all.

  7. theresaj has obviously *never* read the Quran. If she had, she would know that nowhere does it teach hate. Please refrain from making blanket statements until you actually know what you are talking about.

  8. * When did terrorism start? It is an American term based on their interest areas.

    Really? What does allah and its false prophet say about it? Terrorism is simply the act of causing terror; terrorists are those who cause terror.

    You think the CIA and Americans wrote the koran, rather than the false prophet channeling allah? The USA & CIA weren’t around when allah coughed up this nugget of shiite:

    “Let the unbelievers (me) not think that they will escape Us. They have not the power to do so. Muster against them all the men and cavalry at your disposal, so that you may strike terror into the enemies of allah and the faithful, and others besides them. All that you give for the cause of allah shall be repaid you. You shall not be wronged”.

    Sounds like allah-mandated terrorism to me, carried out to this day by muslim terrorists.

    God will deal with allah, its false prophet, and its followers in due course.

  9. * I have read the is the most boring book I have ever read.

    I’ve got one that is more boring – “Earth in the Balance”, by Al Gore 🙂

    Never read more than a few pages, but he seems more at home with Gaia than allah.


    Ishaq:297 “When the Apostle saw them he cried, ‘Allah, they called me a liar. Destroy them!!!

    Sura 3:54 Arabic: Wa Makaru wa makara Allah wa Allah Amkaru al Makireen.

    Sura 3:54 “Allah deceived and Allah is the best of deceivers”

    Qur’an 13:27 “Say, ‘Allah deceives whosoever He wills.'”

    Ishaq:442 “By Muhammad’s order we deceived non-muslims.”


    Ishaq:208 Now we bound ourselves to war against all mankind for Allah and His Apostle. He promised us a reward in Paradise for faithful service. We pledged ourselves to war in complete obedience to
    Muhammad no matter how evil the circumstances.”
