Video: Geert Wilders & Mike Rosen

Fra Newsradio 850KOA – bla. om den danske muhammedkrise:

Geert Wilders & Mike Rosen – May 3, 2012

Guest: Geert Wilders, author of, “Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me.”

Sandheden om hvad der udløste det hollandske valg den 15. september 2012, er omsider kommet frem. Statsminister, Mark Rutte, angreb Geert Wilders på det groveste - midt under budgetforhandlingerne - og sagde, at han ville ødelægge Frihedspartiet, som Wilders er formand for. Derfor udvandrede Wilders fra forhandlingerne og opsagde aftalerne om at fungere som støtteparti. Wilders’ modstand imod alt for drastiske besparelser på statens budgetter har ellers hidtil fået hele skylden. Nis News skrev den 15. maj 2012:

Premier Mark Rutte’s reputation as the good-humoured gentleman has been dented now that it has emerged that he made a fierce attack behind the scenes on Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders.

Rutte was confronted on TV programme Pauw&Witteman last Friday evening with a rumour that he threatened to “decimate” the PVV if Wilders did not sign up to an accord for 14 billion euros in budget cutbacks for 2013. Rutte confirmed that he “may have said something like this”.

Wilders said Saturday evening on TV programme EenVandaag that Rutte’s words had been even stronger. According to the PVV leader, the premier told him “I will break that little party of yours down to the last seat.”

Wilders om EUs krav – Reuters:

“I cannot explain to anyone that these parties signed a blank cheque of 40 billion euros for Greece and perhaps for Spain, Italy and other countries while we demand 12 billion euros from the Dutch citizens,” Wilders told TV station RTL 7.

Og der er mere uenighed:

  • Hvis Holland skal tilslutte sig EUs stabilitetspagt, European Stability Mechanism, ESM, skal vælgerne spørges først. Det siger Geert Wilders, der nu anlægger sag ved de hollandske domstole. Den afgående regering har ikke handlet lovligt ved at underskrive aftalen, som i følge Wilders er suverænitetsafgivelse. Det skriver flere kilder, blandt andre Expatica.
  • Opdatering 5. juni 2012: Wilders tabte retssagen, skriver flere kilder blandt andre The Irish Times og Expatica. Wilders overvejer at anke sagen, skriver Reuters.

Jeg har lavet et lille overblik over noget af Wilders rolle i hollandsk politik det sidste halve år:

  • Bill Gates, Desmond Tutu og Bob Geldof følte sig kaldet til at blande sig i den politiske debat i april. De synes ikke om Wilders Frihedspartis (PVV) forslag om at skære i bistandshjælpen til udviklingslande. Det er som bekendt EU, der har krævet voldsomme stramninger i det offentliges udgifter. Tutu og Geldof har haft læserbreve i hollandske aviser og Bill Gates har ringet til en tv-kanal, skriver Radio Netherlands Worldwide. Avisen Volkskrant modtog også en opringning, fortæller DutchNews. Gates har desuden inviteret Wilders på besøg i Afrika for at se på udviklingsprojekter, fortæller The Irish Times.
  • I april 2012 viste en Klout-undersøgelse, at Geert Wilders ligger på top 10 over de mest indflydelsesrige hollændere på Twitter.
  • Wilders protesterede over den tyrkiske islamist og præsident Abdullah Güls tre dage lange besøg i Holland. Af en eller anden urimelig grund har hollænderne valgt at markere 400 året for diplomatiske forbindelser mellem de to lande. Fra Expatica den 18. april 2012:

“The Turkish president described Mr Wilders as an Islamophobe in an interview with popular daily De Telegraaf. He said the Freedom Party leader expressed extremist views that fostered radicalism.”

Og Wilders svarede via Twitter – fra armenske Panorama:

“Islamist Gul, who persecutes the Christians, attacks the Kurds and is in friendly relations with Hamas, complaint of intolerance. Typical Turkish humor.”

“Turkey has a number of shortcomings – imprisonment of journalists covering criticism, denial of Armenian Genocide, pressure against national minorities. However, due to Kemal Ataturk’s advanced visions Turkey managed to become a strategic ally of the West and shared military and diplomatic cooperation with Israel for so long.”

  • Holland bør droppe euroen og reintroducere hollandske gylden, synes Wilders, der i marts måned plæderede for en folkeafstemning, fremgår det af Bloomberg. En analyse lavet af det britiske Lombard Street Research viser, at den hollandske økonomi er alvorligt hæmmet af euro-medlemsskabet, fortæller The Independent.
  • Wilders Frihedsparti har oprettet en hjemmeside og en hotline, hvor hollændere kan indrapportere de problemer, de oplever med østarbejdere, skriver Deutsche Welle. Hjemmesiden hedder “Meldpunt Midden en Oost Europeanen“. EU, Polen, Bulgarien, Rumænien, Ungarn, Tjekkiet, Slovakiet, Slovenien, Estland, Letland, Lithauen, - har klaget over denne “hadetale”. Tilsidst blev den hollandske regering presset til også at lægge afstand til initiativet. Som man kan regne ud, handler det først og fremmest om østeuropæernes ofte meget kriminelle adfærd. Wilders vil heller ikke have Bulgarien og Rumænien med i Schengen. Midt i februar havde PVVs site mere end 40.000 kommentarer. Da havde det kun været åbent i en uge. Wilders har da også svaret kritikerne med et “Mind your own business”, skriver The Global Post. EU-Kommissionens danske cheftalskvinde, Pia Ahrenkilde-Hansen, udtalte i følge NYDailyNews, at hjemmesiden muligvis kunne være et brud på EUs hade-tale-love. Jojo.
  • I januar foreslog Wilders, at den hollandske regering undskylde deportationen af landets jøder under anden verdenskrig. Mere end 100.000 jøder blev deporteret til dødslejre i Tyskland og Polen. Den hollandske stat solgte de ejendomme, de myrdede jøder var tvunget til at forlade, skriver World of Judaica. I dag bor der kun 30.000 jøder i Holland. Mark Ruttes regering har svaret, at de vil overveje forslaget. Der er til dato ikke kommet noget svar på Wilders anmodning.
  • Den hollandske regering bør arbejde på at få Tyrkiet ud af Nato, mener Wilders’ Frihedsparti i følge The Jerusalem Post, som skrev om det allerede i december 2011.
  • Den egyptiske regering protesterede allerede i november 2011 over Geert Wilders nye bog, skriver Wilders på sin blog. Egypterne anklagede Wilders for at bagvaske islam og den hollandske ambassadør i Egypten blev kaldt i samråd i det Egyptiske udenrigsministerium. Ingen kan imidlertid have læst sig til den antagelse, – bogen er som bekendt først udkommet for få uger siden.

Der ligger et ret godt interview med Geert Wilders hos The Daily Caller. Jeg har linket til det en gang før og nu gør jeg det igen:

Desuden lige dette:

“Before Somebody Gets Hurt”?

by Hugh Fitzgerald – 16 January 2012

Apparently Christopher Dickey, who for many years had a photograph of Yasir Arafat hanging on his Newsweek office wall in Paris, thinks that “someone could get hurt” if Geert Wilders continues to say what, for the well-informed, is obvious: that what is in Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira, if taken to heart, makes every Believer a menace, in posse and, whenever the spirit moves him, in esse, to all non-Muslims. Apparently Christopher Dickey has not noticed the 2.5 million black African Christians killed in the southern Sudan by northern Muslims, never noticed what happened to the Igbo and other Christians before, during, and after the Biafra War, has not noticed what has been happening to Christians in Iraq and in Pakistan and in Indonesia [...]

Bernard-Henri Lévy – upopulær?

The Strenuous Life

How Bernard-Henri Levy fought his way into chronic interventionism

Summer 2011 – Christopher Caldwell

Bernard-Henri LévyI. Last year, Karl Zéro, the madcap newsman/comedian who has been a fixture on French television for a decade, asked the sixty-one-year-old celebrity philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy why people hated him so. Perhaps, Zéro speculated, it had to do with dual identity. There was Bernard-Henri Lévy, who launched his career in the 1970s with La Barbarie à visage humain (Barbarism with a Human Face), an attack on Communism, and who in the decades since had written three dozen more books, most of them about current affairs, and many of them best sellers. Then there was BHL (“Bay-Arsh-Ell”), as he was called in the gossip magazines, the very wealthy heir to a lumber fortune, who owned John Paul Getty’s old palace in Marrakech, who had married a fashion model, and who had counted the country’s last three presidents among his personal friends. Zéro seemed to suggest that the glamour and privilege of BHL clashed with the roles that Lévy accorded himself in his writings—Tribune of Democracy and Conscience of France.

Lévy had another theory. He believed he provoked strong feelings among French people because he was right so often. “Because I was right about Bosnia,” he said. “Because I was right about Rwanda. Because I was right about Darfur. Because I was right about Communism.”

Bernard-Henri Lévy Just Can’t Shut Up

Hugh Fitzgerald – 8 August 2011

I’m so glad I don’t have to see, or read, or hear about, BHL more than I already do, and feel sorry for those who, living in France, can’t escape him, can’t avoid seeing him on television.

Here he is, unrepentant, in the Khaleej Times:

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
