    Wilders Looks for European Allies, Suggests Reuniting Flanders and Netherlands

    Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party PVV and the maker of Fitna, a controversial movie about the Koran, is back in the Netherlands after a two-week vacation in Las Vegas. In an interview published today in the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the largest newspaper in the Netherlands, Wilders said that his party will stand for election in the 2009 European elections and must consider allying itself with like-minded European parties. He also called for a reunification of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking northern part of Belgium, and the Netherlands.

    Wilders went to Vegas, but not to gamble. The 44-year old politician told De Telegraaf he only spent 10 dollars in a casino. He asked the local police if he could join them on their patrols, and he did. Wilders is very impressed by the LVPD. Apparently, the feeling was reciprocal. The policemen had seen Fitna and liked it a lot. They told Wilders: “You should run for president here!”

    The politician said he is happy with the way Fitna was received in the Netherlands. “I do not seek controversy, I want to foster debate. […] Nor was I looking for electoral gain. I knew the movie would lead to a lot of personal and political misery. But I have a mission! I felt I had to do this. […] A politician must lead. We are the most critical voice on immigration, Islam and integration issues [in the Netherlands}, we defend the average Dutchman.”

    He told the paper that multiculturalism does not work. He referred to neighbouring Belgium as an example. Belgium is a country made up of 6 million Dutch-speaking Flemings in Flanders, the northern half of the country, and 4 million French-speaking Walloons in Wallonia, the southern half. Belgium was part of the Netherlands until 1830, when a revolution instigated by Walloons and French agents tore the country apart. The revolutionaries occupied Flanders, too. The Flemings have always been second-class citizens in Belgium and are still politically underrepresented. The current Belgian government has more French-speaking members of cabinet than Flemish. Wilders said he is in favour of reuniting Flanders and the Netherlands.

    For my opion about the Re-unification see :

    <--------

    However I would like to see that Wilders would be more willing to make a realy bold move in regard to VlaamsBelang.

    Wilders Wants Dutch Merger with Flanders

    Wilders wants Dutch merger with Flanders

    Tuesday 13 May 2008

    Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, should be united with the Netherlands, says Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-immigration PVV party in an interview with the Telegraaf.

    Wilders says the recent political crisis in Belgium means the country is once again ‘in a mess’. The Dutch have more in common with the Flemish-speaking Belgians than they have with their French speaking compatriots, he says and calls on the Dutch prime minister to take up the challenge and sound out his Flemish counterpart on the possibility of a merger.

    But Jan Peter Balkenende answers the paper that he has no intention in telling the Belgians how to run their country. Meanwhile Wilders warns that such a move must be voluntary. ‘The idea isn’t to send troops to the south,’ he tells the Telegraaf.

    The paper says an opinion poll last year showed 60% of the Dutch were positive about a merger with Flanders.

    Lets be realistic: Even if Belgium would fall apart, if.... Even then, I think that reality will be that most Flemish would choose for a independent Flemish republic instead of being part of a Dutch kingdsom.

    A reunification should be supported from both sides, otherwise it will failed. If Holland wish to reunite with Flanders, certain institution in Holland need to change anyway.

    Myeah the Flemish people want that to happen rather then to become part of the Netherlands, but as everyone knows Belgium doesnt have much to say and the EU will for sure push them to join the Netherlands or maybe even Germany.

    The EU is becomming a big State when Belgium will split up and get 2 parts that are independent it will ruin there mass control program, so they would rather have our countries to merge and probably that we the Dutch can merge with Germany somewhere in 2015 or whatever.

    --- or perhaps the EU would rather like lots and lots of little Statelets - which it will call EuroRegions - so that no one can ever possibly challenge the rulings of the Central "European" Entity!!

    Anyway - aren't the Flemish rather too Catholic to want to join the Netherlands . I recall this line of thinking on Skadi!?eyes:

    Doesnt mather much as the south of the Netherlands is mostly Catholic to Limburg,Brabant etc.

    I think when we would merge it should be a choice of the Flemish themself, but i dont have much hope the EU will let them do what they want.

    Last polls I had seen about this issue states that those wanting a Reunification is around 50%. But I think most Flanders would probaly dislike the highly "progresive" culture in the Nothern Netherlands, espaily about things like drugs, gaymarriage, abortion, ect. However I think it would be best for the Flemish to first do something about those Walonians. And then about how the relation between the Southern and Nothern Netherlands should be.
