1. King of Jordan...
Warren ,   Israel   (06.20.10)
....married a "Palestinian" woman. Throughout the History of Man, with their Kings and Queens. Were always arranged marriages, that united peoples to prevent wars and ensure peace. He must complete his task, he cant just get the woman without saving the day. A hero has to do both. Come on Jordan, do it for the Palestinians. After all 70% of your country is already palestinian, and your Queen is there.
2. Those Rightwing parties
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (06.20.10)
Now they are fighting muslims , when they will finish this job , they will return to their old "enemy" : the Jewish people . Look only where the base of the VB in Belgium came from : the pro nazi collaborators . Look only at Le Pen's discourses : antisemitic . So , enemies of our enemies : not always our friends
3. I like this guy
Eli ,   Raanana   (06.20.10)
At least, he has no problem with calling things by their name. Most of Europe is trying to hide their heads in sand, as far as the ME conflict is concerned. Wilders, Aznar of Spain and a few others are brave enough as to rise their heads. Kol hakavod!
4. In the next elections may he become Prime Minister!
The Dude   (06.20.10)
While Pim Fortuyn may have been loss, another savior has come from the shadows to lead Europe out of the darkness! Viva Wilders!
5. Finally, some talks common sense!
Abe ,   Michigan, USA   (06.20.10)
6. Going in the correct direction
Eliyahu Konn ,   Yrushalayim   (06.20.10)
But actually most of Jordan and Syria at least to the Euphrates are Israeli lands.
7. Wilders for PM !
European jew   (06.20.10)
He speaks the truth, and figth with courage against the islamic threat better than any other politician in the west
8. I love this guy.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (06.20.10)
Can you imagine, a European with courage, who sees reality, who isn't stifled by the strait-jacket of political correctness & multicultural idiocy? If Europe is to have any future, it needs more good men like Geert Wilders. And judging by his recent success at the polls, many Europeans are waking up. Personally, I think the gov't. of Israel should openly support Geert Wilders & others like him. If Europeans can fund anti-Israel NGO's, there's no reason for us not to support pro-Israel groups in Europe. I only wish OUR gov't. had the courage to talk like Wilders .....
9. return of the repressed ?
CFS ,   FR AND DZ   (06.20.10)
Like Le Pen ?
10. this guy knows what he's talking about!!
dave ,   uk   (06.20.10)
11. Name Change
Harry ,   Jerusalem   (06.20.10)
The "'alternate homeland'" I would definitely agree with. Israel was Israel and is Israel, given the name Philistine by the Romans. Jordan is Jordan, which is describe in the Torah as the Jews camped beyond the Jordan, before entering Israel. So let's keep the names as is, and simply re-locate the displaced arabs back to THEIR HOMELAND, whether Syria, Egypt, etc. You can also send the King of Jordan back to where he came from, being Saudi Arabia. The Bloody Brits gave this Hashemite Kingdom, the vast land of Jordan to his great grandfather on a silver platter. 2 thumbs up to Geert Wilders. He is obvious not afraid to say the TRUTH.
12. Geert Wilders has it right..........
Wise Saba ,   Eretz Yisrael   (06.20.10)
Jordan is Palestine!
13. Geert is 100% right! Jordan is the Arabs PAlestine!
Jay3 ,   Israel   (06.20.10)
Its a shame none of our politicians have the batzim to admit the truth to the world! Come on Bibi........tell the world! Im waiting in anticipation!
14. I just*** LOVE *** this man.........................
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (06.20.10)
Holland deserves to win the Soccer worldcup, there can be no doubt about...
15. Wilders for PM of ISRAEL or replace President Peres
We want Wilders ,   We Want Wilders   (06.20.10)
16. bla bla bla ... look who's talking now!
Muslim ,   Al Quds   (06.20.10)
Tim ,   UK   (06.20.10)
I go even further than Gilders by saying that Jordan is Israel!! Historically, Jordan was part of the Palestine of the British mandate that was given in full to the Jewish people when it was completely void of inhabitants. British, seeing their "mistake" of having granted the ancestral Jewish land back to the Jewish people, the British then decided to prevent Jews from settling on the Jordan part and asked Arabs to move in. Hence, Jordan was created artificially by the British and was completely void of inhabitants before the British decided to prevent Jews from settling in Jordan that was part of the British mandate.
18. How about changing Holland's name to Israel?
Lem van Palestine ,   Amsterdam, Israel   (06.20.10)
it makes more sense this way :-) Because Jews were kicked out of Holland and other European countries, not from Palestine nor Jordan.
19. well said Geert, well said
ghostq   (06.20.10)
after all the queen is pali.
20. to #2 belgium is in deep trouble that kingdom
ghostq   (06.20.10)
is split, half don't want to be with flemish people, and half don't like the franch side, I think Geert is the least of their problem right now.
21. #2 Charles, Petach Tikva.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (06.20.10)
You're completely mistaken about Geert Wilders. He's not particularly right-wing, just sane. He has absolutely NO connexion with any anti-Semitic groups, all of whom actually support our demise along with the Muslims. Read his speeches. You've been fooled by the biased media reports who try to discredit this courageous man. The campaign of slander against Wilders always tries to characterize him as ''far-right radical'' or ''racist'' - the usual tactics of Leftists - they do the same thing to Israeli politicians like Netanyahu or Lieberman. Don't fall for the BS.
22. There is nothing in common between...
Max, T.A.   (06.20.10)
the PVV party and the other ones you mentioned (or with the american evangelic groups). As a dutch speaker, I follow Geert Wilders and the situation in Holland since a long time ago - this man is a liberal, secular and courageos politician who cares about the aggressive islamic penetration in Holland.
23. Over 90% of "Jordanians" are palestinians(even the queen)
Jordan is Palestine   (06.20.10)
only the "king" is a hashmite saudi arabian!
24. BIBI WAKE UP AND TELL THE WORLD THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
its the truth   (06.20.10)
as gandhi said: "even if you are´╗┐ a minority of one(wilders), the truth is still the truth"
25. Holland will be BLESSED by G-D! i pray she wins
Jason   (06.20.10)
the World Cup!
26. Now two people in Europe are speaking correct history!
Wilders & Aznar   (06.20.10)
27. Finally a leader who has the balls to speak the truth.
Kevin   (06.20.10)
28. jordan
marry ,   brussels   (06.20.10)
was created by the Brtish not by the UN so its legality is very weak anyway so for peace sake Mr. Wilders idea is worth promoting until it becomes the policy of the people of the world.
29. Don't chear for him please
J ,   Europe   (06.20.10)
Although he is a great supporter of Israel he is nothing but a demagogue of a populist party. We as jews should not be chearing for him, nor disregard him. Let's stay objective and not be racist scum like Israel's neighbouring countries
30. Wilders is Right!
Gene ,   tlv   (06.20.10)
The only thing delusional about this situation is how Jordan and its Arab/Muslim friends duped the entire world into believing that Jordan is somehow a distinct national entity. Jordan was carved out of the British Mandate in order to be the Arab homeland. Instead, the made-up country of Jordan, who's population is overwhelmingly "Palestinian" was created and now they want another Arab State carved out of what remains of truncated land that belongs to Israel. Arabs conning the world again...
