As the Left in Europe is increasingly characterized by its appeasement of Islam and an acidifying anti-Semitism, Dutch MP Geert Wilders (above, outside the US Senate), an opposition leader on the Right, rallies the Dutch people with his stalwart defense of Western civilization, his opposition to the encroachments of sharia law in his country and the wider West, and his always staunch defense of Jews and Israel, which he rightly sees as a nation on the front lines against the jihad in progress against the non-Muslim world.
So how come the Anti-Defamation League is condemning Wilders--and, in turn, being commended for doing so by Hamas-linked CAIR?
The answer isn't simply that the ADL is embarassingly stupid and completely cracked and that CAIR is equal parts evil and opportunistic. This political trainwreck is the kind of travesty that is symptomatic of our tragically twisted times: The defender of the Jews and the wider West is condemned by the Jews and far too much of the wider West, who are, in turn, applauded by the enemies of the Jews and the wider West.
Which is a disgrace.
