Wilders surprises by converting ex-PVV member Joram van Klaveren into Islam

PVV leader Geert Wilders had never expected that former PVV MP Joram van Klaveren would convert to Islam. "As if a vegetarian is going to work in a slaughterhouse, just about", he says.


PVV leader Geert Wilders had never expected that former PVV MP Joram van Klaveren would convert to Islam. "As if a vegetarian is going to work in a slaughterhouse, just about", he says.

"What a story, do not I have words for that," says Wilders about the conversion of the politician who left the PVV five years ago.

If Van Klaveren had been with the PVV, he should have left immediately, made the party leader clear. Wilders has been critical of the role of Islam in the Netherlands for years.

The former PVV celebrated Monday with an interview in the NRC Handelsblad to the general public that he had converted. In it, Van Klaveren indicated that he had changed his mind when he was working on an anti-Islam book.

Van Klaveren, who sat for the PVV in the House of Representatives from 2010 to 2014, was, like Wilders, critical of Islam for years. He now regrets the remarks he made at the time.

"It's not something I look back on cheerfully, but I can not do anything about it", Van Klaveren told the newspaper. He also stated that he only now understands the consequences of the prejudices about Islam.
