The Likud party has sent a letter to far-right Dutch MP Geert Wilders thanking him for his support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

“Your many friends in Israel followed your courageous campaign. Being attacked so vehemently by your rivals and yet staying such a substantial force in your parliament is an astonishing achievement. May it also serve your party as a spring board for the future,” reads the letter sent last week by Likud Supreme Court President Michael Kleiner and Likud Foreign Affairs director Eli Hazan.

The letter was sent on the same day that Wilders published a tweet reading “Stop Islam,” and urging the Netherlands to outlaw the celebration of Ramandan.
