Dutch Candidate Compares Geert Wilders with Hitler

Dutch Politician Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch rightist, pro-Israel Party for Freedom, called for The Hague to be home to fewer Moroccans, which led an opposing candidate to compare him to Hitler.

Wilders, an anti-Islam and anti-immigration politician and a supporter of Israel, made the comments last week during a campaign event. Local elections in Holland will be held on March 19.

Wilders called for “a city with fewer taxes and, if possible, fewer Moroccans,” according to the Het Parool daily. His party, known as PVV, reportedly is set to become the largest party in The Hague.

Following Wilders’ remarks, Fouad Sidali, a senior member of the Dutch Labor Party, compared Wilders to Hitler.

Sidali on Thursday wrote on Twitter: “Hitler is among us. In the figure of Geert Wilders. Hitler also thought that there should be fewer Jews. We will never forget that.”

Sidali later withdrew his comment. He was quoted by Het Parool as saying Friday that the comparison was inappropriate and that he should not have made it, but added: “One needs to understand what emotions Wilders’ statement evokes.”

Wilders responded on Friday in a tweet which stated:  “Sidali … retracted his statement. Wise. Leaving for Morocco would be even wiser.”

“The days that I let myself, my party and voters be insulted with Nazi comparisons are over. Anyone who does that, I will confront through the microphone or through the court,” Wilders said during a filmed interview which appeared last week on the website of the Dutch daily Telegraaf.

He told the ANP agency that he will sue politicians who make the comparison in civil court for defamation, and that Sidali’s apology came after Wilders’ attorney threatened to sue.

    Let's hear it for Mr. Wilders. We need more politicians like him in the US.

  2. the righteous are always heroic and larger than life. pc cowards have the backbones of worms. my apologies to worms. for the comparison.

  3. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    we need a leader in London like Mr Wilders "

  4. Jo Torres says:

    Go Geert Wilders ! At least he has the courage to back Israel and say unpopular truths.

  5. Geert Wilders, voice of sanity.

  6. Ken Man says:

    Socialists are idiots, the worst thing any secular democracy can do is let in hundreds of thousands of seriously mentally disturbed death god cultists

  7. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Sadly enough, Geert Wilders is forced to spend too many hours in courtrooms or in the preparations of cases to defend himself on charges of racism, Islamophobia and the like. Fortunately other rightist parties in Western Europe are on the move. The forthcoming EU vote about further integration of the countries in a more and more anti-democratic and anti-Israel Union bumps against freedom-parties in the various countries. In Denmark the Danish Peoples Party, which is strongly pro-Israel, goes against the current anti-Israel and pro-boycott of Israel government of Denmark. Today the party is predicted a landslide election in a parliamentary election next year. Something is changing in politics.

  8. The ancient attack against God – YHVH – continues. The attacks against His people is an effort to discredit Him. Read "The Big Lie" by Michael Cohen.

  9. Yoeri Goudsblom says:

    Why a lot of our Jewish brothers, of all peoples, support this fascist demagogue is beyond my understanding. This guy is not what he pretends to be.
