Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I view Wilders more as a political agitator fulfilling a purpose as hasbara for Israel

That's a bit too much conspiracy... Methinks Wilders is a man with his own agenda who is in an alliance of convenience with Likudniks. He wouldn't be anywhere with an Islamophobia platform would the Netherlands not have a large immigrant population from Muslim countries.

Party for Freedom is not a political party with members, it's a one man's movement. Getting funded by the likes of Daniel Pipes, a foreign influence, makes my blood crawl. No transparency and openness. He never comes with a solution, has no party base in the Senate Chamber (Eerste Kamer) and therefore cannot become part of a coalition. (The opposition parties would have a majority and can block legislation) A populist voicing hatred, he should be unmasked by Dutch political leaders.
