Dutch far-Right leader Geert Wilders predicts Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen will join with his party to create the European Parliament's third-biggest bloc.
Wilders is perhaps the most prominent far-right figure in Europe. He campaigns against the EU and Article 1 of the Dutch constitution (guaranteeing equality under the law), arguing for it to be replaced by a clause stating the cultural dominance of the Christian, Jewish and humanist traditions. He has advocated concentration camps and has argued for a five-year moratorium on the immigration of non-Western foreigners who intend to stay in the Netherlands while attempting to deny foreign residents the right to vote in municipal elections.
When arguing for the Dutch embassy in Israel to be moved to Jerusalem, Wilders said:
If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism. There has been an independent Palestinian state since 1946, and it is the kingdom of Jordan.
