    Wilders is NOT anti-semitic! He is pro-semitic! He links Judaism and Christianity together as Judaeo-Christian civilization, and declares that Israel, as a state, is right at the front of the defence of this civilization against Islam. The nationalistic parties in Europe are increasingly declaring that they are pro-semitic. Why? Because their existence is based on being anti-Islamic, which then leads them to support Israel, whose supreme enemy is Islam in Iran and in Hezbollah-Syria. Furthermore, why do enjoy hitting the messenger who has a powerfully logical argument in support of building in Samaria and Judea, ie the West Bank? It may not be a coincidence that shortly after Wilder's speech stating that the West Bank construction must not only continue but accelerate in order for Israel to be able to defend itself against Islamic ideology on behalf of Judaeo-Christian civilization, but also that Jordan is Palestine, shortly after this speech, the US declared that it would give up on its policy of settlement-reconstruction-freeze. If you do defend Israel against anti-semites, do, for your own integrity, recognize those politicians who are seriously pro-semitic. Otherwise you look a little stupid!
