    The Hague

    A policeman with dual nationality (Moroccan and Dutch) had leaked information to Moroccan criminals and possibly to terrorists. He had been employed in the DBB, Dienst Bewaken en Beveiligen, the service that protects Wilders.

    But it gets worse. The agent, Faris K, was not only working for the DBB service, but also assigned to the IRIS team that protects Wilders himself, working as an advance scout. And if that were not enough, agent Faris was arrested and released the very next day to await his trial at home.

    It was also revealed that Faris has a brother, Mohammed K. who had worked for the police in Utrecht, and was suspended for leaking sensitive information in 2007.

    Two police chiefs have had to resign in the face of this gross negligence already. Theo van der Plas and Michel Beaten, who supervise the Dienst Bewaken en Beveiligen quit this week at the request of their red-faced superiors.

    Wilders would probably be better off making his own security arrangements, but this is strictly forbidden under Dutch law. He tweeted that his safety remains a grave concern.

    The PVV has canceled all public appearances by Wilders and other PVV parliamentarians, while the ministry maintains “‘Wilders wasn’t in danger at any time”, a surprising statement under the circumstances coming from the government who had just sacked no less that two police chiefs over the matter.

    Tasteless Volkskrant cartoon

    Wilders was going to campaign in Volendam, a picturesque Dutch village the leftwing Volkskrant calls a town of “Nazi’s”, but cancelled his visit because of the security breach.

    The Dutch Islamic community has meanwhile acted outraged by the arrest of Faris K. They say there aren’t any Moroccan-Dutch criminal gangs and his arrest is another sign of “racism”.

    A couple of days ago, a Muslim Labour parliamentarian Ahmed Marcouch said people who voted for Wilders shouldn’t be employed by the police and the only voices of protest came from the PVV. All the other parties nodded in agreement.

    Wilders tweeted that the agent had even followed him into his safe house, a location that was supposed to be kept secret.

    The latest attempt to silence Wilders should come as no surprise, especially after the numerous times he has been awoken in the middle of the night to be moved to a safer location after many attempted “hits” on him were discovered.

    The expatriate Dutch historian, Arthur Legger, wrote nine years ago about the worrying methods the Dutch elite use to keep everyone in line. Once you read the whole thing, one realises how courageous Wilders is to have taken on an amoral elite.

    The elite merely closes its ranks to leave politicians like Wilders unprotected, says Legger. “In regard to the murder of [Theo] van Gogh the director and staff of the Dutch Security Agency largely knew what was going on and what was about to happen (Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh, had even been their informant for a few months), but nevertheless decided to remain passive. On Tuesday the 16th of March 2008 the Dutch Minister of Internal Affairs, Mrs. G. Ter Horst had to admit this fact in Parliament.”

    According to the polls, the VVD is a serious challenger to the PVV, but it is hard to believe recent Dutch polls as the party with the most parliamentarians either in jail for fraud or on trial is … the VVD. They have held that unenviable position for five years in a row now.
