Le Pen Tells Dutch Radio that she’s no Geert Wilders

Radio Netherlands Worldwide – June 1, 2011

In an interview with Dutch radio, French National Front leader Marine Le Pen said that, unlike Geert Wilders, she is “not waging war against Islam”. She is fighting the Islamisation of French society. She said: “I’m not my father…Our party is not based on hate towards others, but on love for our own country.”
If successful in next year’s presidential elections, Ms Le Pen would set up a “sovereignty ministry” to enable “France to be its own boss in its own country”. According to her, France should determine its own policy on financial matters and immigration. According to a survey published in March in Le Parisien, Ms Le Pen is so popular she would gain an unprecedented first-round victory if the French were to go to the polls today.
