JNS.orgLOS ANGELES—Europeans “need to follow the example of the Jewish people and re-establish their nation-state” to counter the growing Islamization of their countries, Dutch politician Geert Wilders said Sunday in Los Angeles.

“My friends, what we need today is Zionism for the nations of Europe,” Wilders, founder and leader of the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, said at the “Europe’s Last Stand?” conference, organized by the American Freedom Alliance.

Wilders described that Europe’s inner cities “have come to resemble Northern Africa and the Middle East” because they are ruled by Islamic Sharia law, noting that Islamic areas border the European Union headquarters in Brussels and that “largely Islamic suburbs” surround Paris.

“Europe is in a terrible state,” Wilders said. “Bit by bit, European countries are losing their national sovereignty.”

Elan Journo, fellow and director of policy research at The Ayn Rand Institute of Irvine, Calif., said Europe’s history—including “real applications of communism and socialism,” feudalism, and the French Revolution—has led many Europeans to accept a collectivist mentality that closely resembles militant Islamic ideology and now works in harmony with it. That collectivist mentality has also spurred anti-Semitism, Journo explained.

“What happens when you bring in an ideology like militant Islam or Islamic totalitarianism [into Europe], which by virtue of its religious creed divides the world into two groups—there’s the believers and the unbelievers—that magnifies an existing view, that the Jews are part of the unbelievers,” Journo told JNS.org.
