TEL AVIV, Israel — Dutch politician Geert Wilders called on Israel to build more settlements in the West Bank in defiance of international demands for a construction freeze on Sunday.

Wilders stated that building must continue so Israel can create defensible borders — by annexing the West Bank. Wilders is known in the Netherlands and Europe as a staunch critic of Islam and political Islamism.

Wilders also said on Sunday in Tel Aviv that neighboring Jordan should take in Palestinians.

While Wilders doesn't represent the Dutch government, he leads the Netherlands third most popular party, which supports the ruling coalition.
