ACCUMULATING PERIPHERALS

In his positive review in Slate of Reza Aslan’s “How To Win a Cosmic War”, Alan Wolfe takes Aslan to task for exaggerating European anti-Muslim politics:

Explaining why European Muslims are alienated, he points to a bill introduced into the Dutch parliament to outlaw the Quran; he does not mention that it, and its proponent Geert Wilders, were laughed out of existence.

Unfortunately Wolfe is out of date here, and Aslan is right. Over the past few months Geert Wilders and his disgusting party, the PVV (Partij voor de Vrijheid, or “Party for Freedom”), have leaped into first place in the Dutch polls, beating out all the longstanding heavyweights on both the right (Christian Democrats, Liberals) and left (Labor, Socialists, D66, Green-Left). According to the latest polls, if elections were held today, Wilders would win 32 seats in the Dutch Tweede Kamer, with the Christian Democrats in second place at 28. It’s hard to believe this idiocy is actually happening, but it is.
