Geert Wilders: Change Jordan's name to Palestine
ynetnews.com ^ | 06.20.10

Posted on 03/07/2012 7:53:29 AM PST by VU4G10

Geert Wilders, who leads the right-wing Party for Freedom (PVV) in Holland, said last week he believes Jordan should be renamed Palestine. The Jordanian government responded by saying Wilders' speech was reminiscent of the Israeli right wing.

Wilders added that Israel deserved a special status in the Dutch government because it was fighting for Jerusalem in its name.

"If Jerusalem falls into the hands of the Muslims, Athens and Rome will be next. Thus, Jerusalem is the main front protecting the West. It is not a conflict over territory but rather an ideological battle, between the mentality of the liberated West and the ideology of Islamic barbarism," he said.

A good idea, then Israel can ship all the barbarians back to their new country.

I hope he has very good bodyguards. He is causing both Libs and Muslims heads to explode with his comments, and I hope he is around for a long time.

EXACTLY!!!

That’s where the Paleo-stinians were supposed to settle originally.

They were massacred and pushed out by the Jordanian army.

Arabs have lots of money - maybe they should put some of that money where their mouth is... BUY a nice chunk of Jordanian land - and GIVE it to the so called Palestinians.

I'm ever so sure - with the values Islam has given the Palestinians - that in no time they'll turn their little corner of desert into a garden like the Israelis did...

And if it's not turned into a garden - and women are still second or fiftieth class citizens - are not allowed to contribute to the culture - and female children are killed to satisfy 'daddy's big fat ego" and the culture reeks of death - it would still be fun to watch that part of the world come up with endless excuses as to why it's not their fault their country is a loser. and how they can blame all their failures and thuggy governments on the Joos and the United States.

It's all entertaining if we're not forced to go over there and babysit.

The Palestinian Fedayeen were pushed out because they were arrogantly patrolling with heavy weapons in Jordan, killing Jordanian soldiers and officials and openly threatening to overthrow King Hussein and set up a Palestinian-controlled republic. Jordan therefore launched a military offensive to crush them, and they deserved nothing less...

Heh. I knew I was missing an important part of the story.

Thanks for filling it in.

Apparently, the Paleo-stinians have always been savages.

“I hope he has very good bodyguards”

He is under police protection due to death threat by peace loving muslims. I understand that he has to change home very often.
He is a great polititian and as an european myself I admire him very much. It is sad that any polititian speaking against íslam in Europe finds himself or herself under attack, not only by muslims but by other political leaders.
Europe is fast becoming Eurabia, thanks to the cowardice of European presidents and prime ministers.

He is right. Palestine was divided into two parts. A sliver was given to the jewish palestinians, and renamed “Israel”. The remainder was given to the arab palestinians and renamed “Jordan”.

Israel is jewish palestine. Jordan is arab palestine. That is the original “two state solution”.

It was the "Black September" conflict (September 1970) when King Hussein of Jordan declared military rule in response to an attempted coup d’état by his PLO 'guests'

The war resulted in the deaths or expulsion of thousands of Palestinians from Jordan. Good job too.

I really admire and respect Mr. Wilders. The world needs a few million more of him.

“Michael Palestine” just does not have the same ring to it.

Geert Wilders: Change Jordan's name to Palestine

What's the fun in that?
Every adult over 40 with a brain knows that "Palestine" was for 100 years the name of a region similar to our "Midwest," before Jordan existed. The resulting ignorance failed to see the conscious intentional confusion created when the greater part of the original "Palestine" became the Kingdom of Transjordan, later shortened to "Jordan."

So many facts, so little understanding...

In fairness, they didn’t exactly make themselves welcome. That has been a consistent thing in their history.

All happened at the behest of Egypt and Syria, both vying for top dog status in the Near East. They created the "palestinians," around 1975.

People who are ignorant don't know they're ignorant. And they work very hard at staying that way.

A few hours' investment in a good book with verifiable historic facts might change their world view.

Does that make it any less relevant, Achmed?

Actually it was a tad embarrassing, as I reposted it elsewhere only to have it pointed out that it was not current.

In the case of Geert Wilders, this matters, because he has hit so many home runs, that keeping track matters.

http://www.geertwilders.nl/

For example, just in the past week he has called for the Netherlands to leave the Euro and return to the Gilder. This is the first major political party in Europe to say that, and it had a huge impact. And his timing was also excellent, because just after, the President of Spain rejected austerity demands beyond what they have already done.

Wilders has become one of the most important leaders in Europe, and without even being in power. If his party leads a majority coalition after the next elections, it may likely change the future course of Europe.
