In the german version of the BBC 2 production „Wilders: Europe’s Most Dangerous Man?“ by Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk the politican Geert Wilders is been accused to have an one-sided and insulting view on Islam; but the same two people who critize this behaviour present Jews only as Islam-hating fanatics? In the whole documentary all Jews being shown are crazy bloggers, hateful activists (Jewish Task Force), right-wing politicians and illegal settlers.
Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk accuse Wilders to reduce Muslims as terrorists, while they reduce Jews as fanatics. At the end of the film, the state of Israel is even blamed for Wilder’s radicalism. Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk claim: Just as Israel has built a wall between Jews and Palestinians (out of pure hatred, of course, the Palestinian terrorists, who desire the destruction of Israel, the Hamas Charta with its 7th article calling for the eradication of all Jews and the regular attacks on Israel are not even mentioned), Wilders now wants to built a wall in order to disconect the Muslims from the Netherlands. Thus, it is assumed that Wilders is indoctrinated by Israel.
What a funny conspiracy theory that is, even funnier than the conspiracy theory that the sympathizers of Geert Wilders are accused of. Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk commit the very same mistake that they critize, but instead of blaming the bad, bad Muslims, they blame the bad, bad Jews. Well, at least the danger is still located somewhere in the East, even Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk do not doubt that.
On the homepage of the production company of this film one can find the following statement:
„BAFTA-winning filmmakers Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk follow Wilders on his campaign trail during the recent Dutch elections, meet members of the international anti-Islamic network who support him, and find out about a conspiracy theory promoting the belief that Europe is being taken over by Islam.“
I would like to add:
„While finding out about a conspiracy theory promoting the belief that Europe is being taken over by Islam, Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk create a conspiracy theory themself, promoting the idea that Europe is being taken over by the Jews and Israel.“
Dear BBC 2,
You are responsilbe for this one-sided and insulting documentary. Is it allowed to call you from now on: „BBC 2: Europe’s Most Dangerous Company?“
