Stephen Goy ,   Manchester UK   (06.20.10)
Way to go Geert. A man who has got a pair! If only we had people like him as our representatives, instead of the flaky, butt- kissers we have landed ourselves with...... again.

37. MAZEL TOV Geert! I hope you are soon PM
Avi ,   Geneva   (06.20.10)
of Holland as you deserve. As for your suggestion, it is of course excellent. All "Palestinian" Arabs should go and live in Arab lands. As for Transjordan, let us not forget that it was part of the original Mandate, and was unilaterally separated from Israel by British fiat. Arabs should go back to Arabia, where they came from and stole lands all over the middle east and north Africa. But OK, for the sake of peace, I would be willing to grant them Transjordan. Let them go there, at least.
38. Absolutely spot on!
Madeleine ,   Israel   (06.20.10)
Jordan is a creation of the British! The 1920 (1922?) San Remo conference gave the land beyond (TRANS-) the Jordan to the Arabs as their homeland. This was agreed on both by the British and Arab leaders at the time and no Jews were to be allowed to live there. It was a completely 'new' country, created after the the defeat of the Ottaman Empire in WWI and was carved out of parts of Syria, what is today Iraq. This is the true Palestinian Land but of course no present-day Jordanian ruler will acknowledge this. See:
39. Gaza is Palestine not Jordan
Yossef ,   Rehovot, Israel   (06.20.10)
40. They will not do it
Arrow   (06.20.10)
Few reasons for that: 1. Palis are 'persona nongrata' meaning, no one wants them actually, arab world and terrorists just use them. 2. When it comes to name, Jordan will probably remain Jordan. 3. Most palis have no intent of leaving Israel, they rather live in bad conditions, ghettoized and steaming with hatred. 4. So called 'peace' has always been subject to breaching. And there is no democracy, nobel prize, nor system invented by humans that would change that. Palis were hostile towards Israel from biblical times.
41. Jrwish name
Lina ,   Tel Aviv   (06.20.10)
All Arabs want to go to Arabia but king Saud and his family do not allow them. So ABeduins call the new country by the Jewish name "Jordan" ---Jewish name, likr Juda, Samaria.
42. "Palestine", according to the San Remo Conference and the
Avigdor Ezrahi ,   Israel   (06.20.10)
League of Nations consisted of present day Jordan, Israel, Gaza and West Bank. Jordan, 78% of this territory, was handed over by the British to the Arabs. Why should the Jews give them any more of "Palestine" while both the San Remo Conference and the League of Nations talked about "Palestine", all of it, as the "national home of the Jewish people"?
43. Since when fascism and jews support each others?
sami ,   Lebanon   (06.20.10)
Israeli can be proud being supported by a fascist, obnoxious, xenophobic personality, element of disgrace to any liberal open minded nation.won't last long till the hatred will be diverted toward Jews or any foreigner as scape goats when society in its turn down.
44. Arduan is the real racist
itai ,   jerusalem   (06.20.10)
Hey you, we all know that he is racist, but you and your unbelivable racist government push us israelies into extreme ideology. we will support everyone that can understand the barbarian colture of the ISLAM because you dont leave us any choise, if all of you (even the reasonable turkish) are becoming barbarian islam jihad (and that is infact what's going on in your country) we will fight in every instrument we have, include supporting radical right wing of Holland. ISRAEL WILL STAND FOREVER!!!
45. Jordan is Palestine
Mongo ,   Paris   (06.20.10)
It was, it is, and will always be. Geert Wilders has the courage to speak the obvious. He is the new Churchill that Europe sorely needs.
46. #36 It's not racist, maybe you are ignoring the point?
Historical Observer ,   NY   (06.20.10)
This guy is against Turkey joining the European Union and has anti-jihadist campaign, but I don't think that would make him a racist (not by arab standards anyway). I think his support for Israel is welcomed and his points actually hit a very reasonable tone - Both Israel and Jordan were partitioned along with other countries. Why not support this idea since it is reasonable and has been our point for many years. Jordan is at peace with Israel, so Israel's government would be in trouble making these statements. If the arab countries would support this idea, peace would come to the middle east finally. It is a sign of the times and should be debated in light of the recent events. This is what happened between Pakistan and India, and we see that didn't bring peace to their respective countries. Israel does not want to rid itself of its arab population, we just want the violence to end.
47. Geert Wilders. liberal hero
G.S. ,   USA   (06.20.10)
Geert Wilders is a true hero. He is literally risking his life to tell the truth and save his country from Islamic fascism. Only is today’s upside-down world is a liberal friend of Israel and the Jewish People, who is a supporter of gay rights and women’s rights, called a racist right- winger. And yes, jordan is a totally artificial entity, created by british colonialists to compensate the hashemites when they got beaten by the house of saud. It has no "right to exist".
48. good grief
bob ,   New Zealand   (06.20.10)
I thought that after a few days of research I had finally ''got'' it --> islamists are out to exterminate the Jews in order to usher in the messiah predicted in Shia prophecy ( or whatever etc etc ) and that therefore Israel's only option is military force followed by more military force because arabs only want one thing - to get rid of the jews. Now everyone has changed to saying the problem is about land disputes and that somehow a solution can be found by deciding who should live where. If the real issue is about about virulent anti-semitism and an enemy intent on Israels destruction and the elimination of jews then Wilder''s solution is irrelevent surely.
OZ   (06.20.10)
I AGREE 100% WITH HIM ON THIS. but beleive you me, the arabs will find every excuse in the book to continue their""struggle"" against the ""zionist entity", even if we move to the moon. face it people, this is a clash of civilazations and israel in at the cuss of it. it's either us or them! i vote- us!
50. Wilders is brilliant
Brod ,   USA   (06.20.10)
Wilders is brilliant and right on target on the issues that pertain to the region. He is the only leader in the West who has become a leading expert on Islamist-Jihadism and knows its dark agenda. If more Western leaders are knowledgeable of the subject, they won't easily be fooled and manipulated by the Islamist-Jihadist world.
51. 33 , you don't know about what you talk
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (06.20.10)
Vlaams Blok does NOT exist anymore !
52. You can tell a lot about a person by their friends
jj   (06.20.10)
Geert Wilders? wow, Israel if this is the type of person you attract, you should really take a long hard look at yourself.
53. Wilders for PM of Israel !!
Janice Cohen ,   ירושלים   (06.20.10)
But he owes me some thanks for using my line.
54. #36
Mr_Dave ,   Netherlands   (06.20.10)
Wilders isn't/can't be a racist. Wilders is against more influence of Islam in the Netherlands/Europe. That Turks are against Wilders is understandable because Wilders is against Turkey to become a member of the EU. The reason for this is that Turkey is becoming more and more radical Islamic then Ataturk ever wanted. But when are you going to learn the facts? Racism is a believe that one race is superior to the other. Islam is not a race, it’s a religion.
55. Terry , Elat
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (06.20.10)
I , coming from western Europe , do not need leftist propaganda to know what kind of parties they are . And Geerd Wilders is not very different from them . The VB leader , de Winter , also was pro Israel , wanted to visit here . They are , contrary to Le Pen not openly antisemites , i agree . But Geert Wilders received the support of the Flemish Vlaams Belang . Tell me who your friends are , and i'll tell you who you are . Not speciaslly for you , but .....
56. palestine and israel
Popoff ,   Russia   (06.20.10)
Israel will prevail. Even if it takes setbacks and defeats. Ultimately, Israel is set to win. No crisis will crush Israel, it will survive all.

Even though your talkbacks are very sympathetic to the cause and I enjoy very much, you may want to read this about Dutch football before getting too excited :
59. Dutch People is a lucky and blessed People
Keren ,   IL-BR   (06.20.10)
because they have a righteous man rulling over them.
JEWISH DOCTOR ,   NYC USA   (06.20.10)
NOTHING LIKE CALLING A SPADE A SPADE. JORDAN is and will always be historical, practical, and nationally realistic, PALESTINE! And has a built -in "royal" family" so there's no need for a ruling HAMASS gang of thugs as it already has it's own exremists.
