After Friday Comes Saturday?

Brian of London here asking: so do we all still agree, Geert Wilders is just a dangerous ultra right winger who will round up and kill all the Jews in Holland just after he’s rounded up and killed all the Muslims?

Holland takes tough stance again… JPost – Iranian Threat – News.

BERLIN – A parliamentary resolution last week against Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons contributed to the Dutch Foreign Ministry embracing what appears to be the strongest European position toward ratcheting up the pressure on Tehran’s leaders.

Wim Kortenoeven, a deputy from the Party for Freedom, told The Jerusalem Post in a telephone interview from The Hague on Friday that his party had worked to pass a potent measure.

The Party for Freedom (PVV) is, of course, Geert Wilders party but you have to look a long way down to see his name associated with something positive for Israel.

So how many other European political parties are sticking their necks out and supporting Israel this way? How many others of them are wrongly labeled as “far right” or other scary and equally false descriptors designed to scare Jews and others into thinking the dawn of the Fourth Reich is upon us?

Kortenoeven told the Post, “My party, the Party for Freedom, will never let Israel down. We will never let down the Jewish State of Israel. We will also support Israel when they exercise their legitimate right to self-defense.

In the debate I repeated it three times: My party will never abandon Israel. We support it unconditionally and with whatever it takes. The Iranian threat to annihilate six million Jews is a moral call to us. It is an Auschwitz in the making. We take this threat seriously. History forces us to do that. It happened before and the West did nothing to stop it.”

He continued, “In the debate, I referred to the ships that were crossing oceans and seas, filled with Jews trying to escape the Nazis, but ending up in Hamburg or being torpedoed in the Black See. The St. Louis and the Struma. Perhaps I also should have referred to the Evian Conference of 1938.

There the free West effectively turned its back on the Jews, making nice statements but offering nothing substantial to save them, and bluntly refusing to go to the hilt in stopping the Nazi menace.

The similarity is very disturbing and very real.”

According to Kortenoeven, “Supporting Israel now is a moral obligation. But it is also in our own best interest, as the Iranian threat is also extending to the rest of the free and liberal West.

So can we all agree, Wilders and his party are not just putting on an act when they say they support Israel and the Jews in the battle against the global Jihad?

  1. (Anti-)Israeli Arab Party MK praises Likud and slams the opposition for cultural insensitivity:

    “MK Khenin (Hadash) expressed his support for Speaker Rivlin’s position of delaying the vote on controversial bills for a week to allow the Arab MKs to celebrate their holiday and not require them to come into work to vote. He slammed Kadima, Labor and Meretz for inciting against the Speaker and for ignoring the importance of Arab holidays.”

  2. This is really not in my wheelhouse, but I’m a little confused by this post. I’m not a religious person, but I can see where the pursuit of the latest gadget might easily impede the pursuit of a religious life. And it was not just a failure of American Jews that not enough was done to prevent the Holocaust. The broader society is just as much to blame. President Roosevelt should have ordered the bombing of rail infrastructure that allowed the Nazis to transport many to the concentration camps. Finally, I should read more before I spout off (then again, why start now) but I get the uncomfortable feeling that Geert Wilders is just David Duke in wooden shoes.

    1. “…but I get the uncomfortable feeling that Geert Wilders is just David Duke in wooden shoes.”

      He’s right-wing, that’s all you need to reach that conclusion. Same as believing, without a shred of substantiated evidence, that the Tea Party is about white supremacism (take it from the MSM, they know best; the Tea Partiers are obviously lying when they say their platform is about the economy only).

      Even the moderates among the Left have been Marxified in their thought-patterns. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

      1. If you’re saying that the Tea Party is mostly about smaller, more accountable government, then I agree with you. If you’re also saying that there is no element of racism or social conservatism, then I disagree. And aren’t you even a little bothered when you see the individuals the Tea Party has put forth as worthy of their support? It is embarrassing how ill-suited they are to public service.

          1. No, my point is that like most political movements, it is not just about one thing, namely smaller government. Social conservatism is supposed to bother people like me. Your job is to guide people like ziontruth/Shy Guy into a slightly less pathological course of action.

            1. There is an element of social conservatism in the tea party, but it is not universal; there is a strong libertarian element. Of course, I am a social conservative first, an interventionist (foreign policy)second, and an economic conservative third, so I’m fine with it. Regarding racism, it is a bit of a non-sequitur as all groups (leftists not least among them) have an element of racism. They probably have less than others.

              Conservatives are not interently better than leftists. But conservatives are put under a fine microscope than by the MSM, so they are forced to be cleaner. It is hard to think of another movement that has worked as hard – and as successfully – to police itself and to clarify its message as the tea party has. Also, it is hard to think of another protest movement where such a high percentage of the members need to get to work the next day.

        1. “If you’re also saying that there is no element of racism or social conservatism, then I disagree.”

          I suspect a lot of Tea Partiers are also social conservatives. There might be even a few of them who are racists in the true, classical sense of the word. Regardless, the Tea Party itself, as opposed to this or that member of the Tea Party, is about fiscal conservatism only. To claim that the Tea Party itself is tainted with social conservatism and racism is a Marxist evasion tactic.

          “And aren’t you even a little bothered when you see the individuals the Tea Party has put forth as worthy of their support?”

          I presume you’re talking about Ron Paul. In my opinion, Ron Paul shows the same hazards as does Obama in terms of putting the right people in the right place: Just as Obama’s rightful place is sequestered in some college (either as student or staff) and not in the White House, Paul’s rightful place is in some fiscal charge, as far away as possible from foreign policy. I consider Paul’s blame-America-first, appease-Muslims-second stance on foreign policy atrocious; I consider his fiscal stance sensible.

          “It is embarrassing how ill-suited they are to public service.”

          In what sense are they ill-suited? And in what sense is someone with zero management experience, and who can’t even talk straight without his teleprompter, well-suited?

          “Your job is to guide people like ziontruth/Shy Guy into a slightly less pathological course of action.”

          Those who wish to avoid a pathological course of action can start by not listening to Leftist “friends” like you. “Friends” who tell Israel it should go back to the course of negotiations and concessions despite the abject failure of that course.
