I have always admired Geert Wilders. A politician who actually lowered his standard of living (living under 24/7 security by multiple guards is not an easy or luxurious way to live) in order to serve his fellow man and western liberal civilization as a whole. He often speaks of things which are true and important but place him at great personal risk and is a staunch supporter of Israel. He also made the anti Islam film ‘Fitna’ available to be seen here on Vlad.
I would also like to thank the Baron over at Gates Of Vienna for having this translated for all of us who do not speak Dutch.

“Just Kick the Whole Lot into the Sinai”
by Baron Bodissey
Geert Wilders ventures his opinion on Israel’s “disproportionate response” in this brief article from De Telegraaf, as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH:
Wilders stands behind Israel
The Hague — PVV leader Geert Wilders stands behind Israel in the conflict in the Middle East. “Violence against terror is rarely disproportionate”, he responded Sunday concerning the Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip.
“If we [in The Netherlands] had to deal with terrorists just across the border in Belgium or Germany, who were launching missiles at Maastricht or Breda, and broke a truce,” Wilders — if he were Minister of Defense — would have done exactly the same as Israel is doing now.
Wilders points out that the Palestinians have chosen Hamas themselves in elections. He believes that Israel has the all the right in the world to defend itself. “The cause is blind hatred. There is unfortunately no dialogue against that. If your people and country are threatened existentially and fired upon by terrorists, you shoot back.”
According to Wilders, Israel is quite right: “Just kick the whole lot into the Sinai.”
