Geert Wilders: Dutch PM frontrunner says ‘Islam and freedom are not compatible’

Populist far-right politician Geert Wilders has said Islam is a threat to European values and is incompatible with freedom.

“Dutch values are based on Christianity, on Judaism, on humanism. Islam and freedom are not compatible,” Mr Wilders, 53, told USA Today.

“You see it in almost every country where it dominates. There is a total lack of freedom, civil society, rule of law, middle class; journalists, gays, apostates — they are all in trouble in those places. And we import it.”
