Breathtaking. This shows how thoroughly the Dutch establishment has been compromised by its avidity to appease Islamic supremacists and pretend that the massive influx of Muslim migrants is not transforming Dutch society for the worse. Like dhimmi Middle Eastern Christians who adopt the Muslim perspective on Israel, they, too, have adopted the notion that support for and alliance with Israel is something nefarious, something to be investigated.
Many swamps are in dire need of draining.
“Report: Dutch Secret Service Investigated Far-right Leader’s Ties to Israel,” by Shlomo Papirblat, Haaretz, December 5, 2016:
BRUSSELS – Geert Wilders, leader of Holland’s far-right anti-Muslim Party of Freedom, was investigated in the past by the country’s General Intelligence and Security Service (AVID) over his “ties to Israel and their possible influence on his loyalty.”
Wilders, whose party is leading the polls ahead of the upcoming election in March, is likely to be a key figure in the next government.
The undercover investigation was exposed over the weekend by the veteran daily De Volkskrant. According to the article, AVID agents conducted the investigation from 2009 to 2010, with its existence and results remaining unknown until now. The Dutch central intelligence organization is in charge of safeguarding internal national security, handling non-military dangers to the country and preventing espionage.
An investigation of this kind into an active politician is an exceptional occurrence in Holland, the newspaper noted. If conducted, it is only in cases in which there are very reasonable grounds for suspicion. Wilders was a member of parliament at the time, with his party supporting the right-center coalition government from the outside and enabling it to remain in power.
The reason for the investigation, according to the newspaper, was concern in the Dutch security service about “the possibility that Geert Wilders is influenced by Israeli factors,” with whom he had close ties. He visited Israel at the end of 2008, meeting with “Gen. Amos Gilad in his office in the main military headquarters in Tel Aviv, and regularly attended meetings with Israel’s ambassador to Holland at the time,” according to De Volkskrant….
