In the interview, [Geert] Wilders also said that he is considering forming an alliance with Belgium’s far-right Vlaams Belang party, which he has hitherto shunned. Belgian Jews have also shunned Vlaams Belang.- - - - - - - - -
Wilders also revealed that if his Party for Freedom — which occupies nine of the Dutch parliament’s 150 seats — runs in European parliamentary elections, he may join Vlaams Belang to form a larger right-wing bloc. Wilders had previously said he would not consider such an alliance.
Belgium’s Jewish leadership has boycotted Vlaams Belang, citing its “strong anti-Semitic characteristics,” and in an interview with Haaretz last year, Wilders cited this in explaining his decision to distance himself from the party.
But now, he said, “there are different sounds coming from Vlaams Belang. Some people say they have changed, even from the Jewish community.
“That they have changed their tune. Others say they haven’t. I have to look into it and talk to people and study it more. I’m not saying it is impossible.”
However, he added, “we will not ally ourselves with parties like that of France’s Jean-Marie Le Pen.”
Oh, dear — and here we thought Mr. Wilders and the Partij Voor Vrijheid were OK!
Now we find out that they’re neo-Nazis, just like all the rest of the Europeans…
