This country's version of Donald Trump — but with more extreme anti-immigration and anti-Islam views — is counting on voters to give his right-wing party a chance next month to implement its controversial vision.
"Dutch values are based on Christianity, on Judaism, on humanism. Islam and freedom are not compatible," populist politician Geert Wilders, 53, said in an interview with 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."
Wilders wants to close all mosques, ban the Quran, the Muslim holy book, and seal the nation's borders to asylum seekers and immigrants from Islamic countries to prevent the spread of Islam.
