    Hypocrites is a pretty judgmental comment. We don't know what they are doing with the information, if anything at all. We do however know full well what the U.S and the U.K, among others are doing with it and why they want it. At least in Israel, they can use the national security argument and mean it. That said, if they are jumping on the spying "just 'cause" train, then shame on them as well. Again though, they have a much different environment to deal with.

    I thought political opinions are usually not allowed at Wilders.

    Eh, I wouldn't count that as a political comment really. Insert any country into the sentence and the same point is made, that they shouldn't collect data and abuse it. It's not a political statement if it's becoming a worldwide problem and isn't tied to a specific party or leader.
