Some good news, for a change — Geert Wilders has successfully formed alliances with other Counterjihad politicians and parties in Europe, and even in the USA.
Here’s the article from today’s De Telegraaf, as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH:
Wilders no longer on his own
AMSTERDAM — Geert Wilders is no longer on his own in the fight against Islam. The PVV leader at the moment is working together with American, British, Italian, and Danish political parties.
Member of Parliament Morten Messerschmidt of the Danish People’s Party, which represents 14% of the Danish voters, speaks of a “fruitful cooperation” between the PVV leader and his party leader Pia Kjærsgaard, De Pers writes.
According to Messerschmidt, for all parties it is “important to show that you are not on your own with your fears about the Islamization of society,” as he says to the free newspaper. “Historically speaking, we were a bit shy about working together. But more and more we feel that we must unite in the struggle against fundamentalist Islam. Certainly because existing parties have a strong tendency to isolate parties like ours, and paint us as being individual exceptions.”

According to Wilders, the international cooperation with like-minded people can lead to the parties simultaneously handing in the same proposals to various parliaments. It is the first time that anti-immigration parties from different countries have openly declared to be in favor of alliances.
Wilders says that he also has ties with the conservative Sue Myrick who is a member of Congress for the Republicans in the House of Representatives.
Next week, the PVV will announce whether it will participate in the elections of the European Parliament in June 2009.
