And what is your opinion on Israel joining the union?
“I would advise my friends in Israel not to consider such an option. The Union has always supported Palestinians. Israel has a lot of friends in Europe, but Europe is not a friend to Israel.”
This is Geert Wilders being interviewed in the Israeli Yedioth. The only niggle I have is the word ‘Europe’ where it should read ‘the EUnion’. These two are not equivalent in any sense of the word. But for the rest: It is a sad, but oh, so true statement.
Gates of Vienna have a translation of the entire interview: “Israel Is Fighting Our War”.
