Ehsan Jami is a prominent Dutch apostate from Islam whose activities have caused controversy, to say the least. He has been physically attacked and threatened with death by his former co-religionists.
The latest news is that Mr. Jami is going to be actively involved with Geert Wilders’ political party. Our Flemish correspondent VH has the story, translated from Trouw:
Ehsan Jami in PVV’s “talent pool”
Ehsan Jami will become politically active in Geert Wilders’ party, the PVV. The former PvdA council member is in the “talent pool,” Wilders told the Dutch press agency ANP Thursday.
“He is someone with guts and with interesting views. I am convinced that he can make a good contribution to spreading the ideas of the PVV,” Wilders said. It is not certain whether Ehsan Jami will become a PVV candidate for the municipal council in The Hague or for the PVV fraction in Parliament. “I think his heart goes out to the Parliament,” said Wilders.
Jami grew up in Iran, and was Councilor for the PvdA (Socialists) in Leidschendam-Voorburg [near the Hague]. In 2007 he gained national attention with a committee for ex-Muslims. With Wilders he wrote an opinion article in September 2007, which compared the Prophet Mohammed to Adolf Hitler. The PvdA then expelled Jami from the party. Last year Jami made the movie “Interview with Muhammad”. “This is unique in the history of Islam,” Afshin Ellian wrote. “Nothing like this has ever happened before.”
