  • The Netherlands: War Over Geert Wilders

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 03/31/2014 | Bruce Bawer
    On March 19, addressing supporters in The Hague after a local election, Geert Wilders, head of the Freedom Party (PVV), asked if they wanted more or less of the European Union. “Less!” they shouted. Did they want more or less of the Labor Party? “Less!” they repeated. Then he asked, “Do you want, in this city and in the Netherlands, more or fewer Moroccans?” That last line caused a firestorm. Major politicians compared Wilders to Hitler. Prime Minister Mark Rutte demanded he apologize. The Freedom Party’s leader in the European Parliament, Laurence Stassen, quit the party, as did many local...

    On March 19, 2014, local elections were held in the Netherlands. On the eve of the election, party leaders celebrated their victories (or losses, as it were, for most parties). During the festivities Dutch politician Geert Wilders appeared in the Hague, one of the two cities in which Wilders’ party, the PVV (Party for Freedom), participated in this election. In a rousing speech before enthusiastic party supporters, Wilders asked the audience if they wanted a bit less local taxation and fewer Moroccans. The audience shouted, “Less! Less! Less!” This created a storm of protest from just about everyone in...

    Here again we see the violent thuggery that is at the heart of people like this rapper and so very many of his coreligionists and Leftist allies. They cannot answer their opponents; they cannot meet them on the level of rational discourse. And so they move to shut them down through threats on the one hand and smear campaigns on the other. It is the mark of a culture of deep insecurity; however, faced as it is with a culture of appeasement and cowardice, it could prevail. “Geert Wilders to take legal action against rapper over video,” from Dutch News,...

    In a foretaste of his campaign for European parliamentary elections in May, Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders is making his case that the Netherlands would be better off leaving the European Union. Wilders’ views on Europe get little support in the Netherlands. However, personally he is riding high in opinion polls, with some showing him with more support than the two parties in the current centrist ruling coalition combined. …

    Washington, DC: Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders, founder and floor leader of the Freedom Party (PVV), and member of the Board of Advisors of the International Free Press Society (IFPS), recounted today before a packed audience in Washington's National Press Club the recent, alarming attacks on free speech worldwide - including legal actions and death threats to which he and other political leaders and journalists have lately been exposed. Notably, Mr Wilders is being prosecuted in his own county because of reaction to his film "Fitna," and his remarks challenging the contention that Islam is a "religion of peace."

    THE HAGUE, 12/03/09 - The cabinet has ignored a motion in which the Lower House almost unanimously called upon it to complain in the European Union about the United Kingdom's refusal to admit MP Geert Wilders. At the same time, however, the House is accepting that its motion is disregarded. A month ago, Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders could not enter the UK because the British government decided that his criticisms of Islam made him a threat to public safety. The Dutch government expressed its objections, though modestly, calling Wilders' refusal "very regrettable" rather than unacceptable. It but...

    Anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders should not have been refused entry to Britain to attend a screening of his film Fitna earlier this year, a British immigration tribunal ruled on Tuesday. Wilders had been invited to the House of Lords, the upper house of the British parliament, for the screening in February, but was told he would be refused entry on public order grounds. Wilders went ahead with the trip and was turned back by immigration officials at Heathrow airport. 'This is a very black day. They are bowing down to Islam by refusing entry to critics,' Wilders said at the...

    Rightwing Dutch politician Geert Wilders branded Prime Minister Gordon Brown the "biggest coward in Europe" after being refused entry to Britain to show his anti-Islam film. Wilders, who is facing prosecution in Holland for inciting hatred against Muslims, was detained on landing at Heathrow airport and sent back to the Netherlands just over three hours later. He had been invited by a British peer to show his film Fitna, which criticises the Koran as a "fascist book", in the House of Lords.

    Geert Wilders, the Dutch far-right politician, has won his appeal against the Government's refusal to let him enter Britain. The politician, who has been accused of Islamophobia, was told at the start of this year by the then Home Secretary Jacqui Smith that he would be refused entry should he attempt to enter the UK. But today's ruling by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal means that Wilders could now be allowed into the country. He was due to show his short film Fitna, which criticises the Koran as a "fascist book",

Two Dutch politicians and several media criticized the team, Vitesse of Arnhem, over the weekend for agreeing to play in Abu Dhabi despite the refusal Saturday to let Dan Mori into the country for matches against two German teams. Geert Wilders, leader of the rightist, pro-Israel Party for Freedom, on Sunday called the team cowardly on his Twitter account. “Vitesse shouldn’t have gone to the United Arab Emirates to protest the refusal to let Mori in.

Mr. Wilders is well known in his home country for his strong criticism of Islam, having stated at various times that "Islamic ideology has to be defeated" and "there is no such thing as "moderate Islam'," and advocating that the Netherlands ban the Quran, Islamic dress, and the further immigration of Muslims to that country.

    Islam, rather than a religion, is predominantly a totalitarian ideology striving for world dominance. I believe that Islam and freedom are incompatible. Some people do not want to hear this message. That is why they threaten to murder everyone who states this truth. I am not the only one who has been marked for death. The British author Salman Rushdie, the Scandinavian cartoonists Kurt Westergaard and Lars Vilks have all been victims of assassination attempts. However, if you really love freedom, you have to speak the truth. If not, we will fall victim to Islam, like earlier the people in...

    The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands. A new integration bill (covering letter and 15-page action plan), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural...

Mr. Wilders lives under 24/7 armed guard because significant numbers of motivated people wish to kill him, and it seemed to me, as someone who’s attracted more than enough homicidal attention over the years, that sharing space in these pages was likely to lead to an uptick in my own death threats. Who needs it? Why not just plead too crowded a schedule and suggest the author try elsewhere? I would imagine Geert Wilders gets quite a lot...

Beady eyes stared out from a black balaclava emblazoned with an inscription from the Quran—clearly the eyes were meant to be those of a terrorist—and next to them were these words: “ISLAM RISING ...

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Outspoken Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders called on the government Wednesday to apologize for the country’s “passive” response to the mass deportations of Jews by Nazi occupiers during World War II. The move is likely to re-ignite debate about Dutch attitudes to the wartime persecution of the country’s Jewish population. Of the 140,000 Jews who lived in the Netherlands before the war, more than 100,000 were deported and murdered. About 30,000 Jews live here now, out of a total population of nearly 17 million. Wilders is best known for his strident criticism of Islam and also is...

    Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders was acquitted of inciting hatred of Muslims in a court ruling on Thursday that may strengthen his political influence and exacerbate tensions over immigration policy.

Instantly recognizable by his mane of dyed blond hair, Wilders, 47, is one of the most outspoken critics of Islam and immigration in the Netherlands. His Freedom Party is...

Our weekly Canadian program, “On the Front Line,” was one of the media outlets carefully selected to interview Wilders during his first visit to Canada last week. For several years, public and private discourse has centered around the sensationalism of Wilders’ epic battle against the Islamization of the West. But this interview (still to be aired) revealed some of Wilders’ less publicized views on moderate Islam and the personal cost of his quest. Wilders, who remains under explicit death threats from Muslims, is...

Wilders does not call Islam, Islamism but in Canada, there is a difference between Islam and Islamism. According to the human rights tribunals, the former is a religion, and the later an idelogy.

    http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2011/05/geert-wilders-comes-to-nashville.html Mr. Wilders will continue his lectures in Nashville, where the current legislature is contemplating “anti-sharia” legislation. Nashville’s neighboring city of Murfreesboro is famous for its battle over a planned mega-mosque. The Cornerstone Church is a large church in the Nashville area, where several thousand Christians are expected to listen to Wilders’ “Warning to America”. -Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday May 12, 2011

    "Mr. President, members of the court, stop this unfair, political trial. Respect our Dutch freedoms." Mister President, members of the Court. I recently tried to have Your Honors removed from the case for your refusal to register a statement of perjury against Mr. Hendriks. My challenge of the court did not succeed. I must accept that. I do wish to say, however, that I was more annoyed by another declaration of the President of the Court on the day of the official hearing of Mr. Jansen. He said that I was a free man, that I could not be compared...

    Madam Speaker, allow me, first, to express my sincere thanks to you personally for having planned a debate on Islam on the very day of my birthday. I could not have wished for a nicer present! Madam Speaker, approximately 1400 years ago war was declared on us by an ideology of hate and violence which arose at the time and was proclaimed by a barbarian who called himself the Prophet Mohammed. I am referring to Islam. Madam Speaker, let me start with the foundation of the Islamic faith, the Koran. The Koran's core theme is about the duty of all...

    Photo by El Marco Two years ago when I was in our nation's capital for a CPAC convention, I attended a reception hosted by Pamela Geller, Dr. Andy Bostom, David Horowitz, and Robert Spencer, four highly esteemed people in the forefront of the fight against radical Islam. Among those at the event was Lt. Col. Allen West, who had lost his initial bid for Congress the previous fall.  As we know, he ran again and won, and now represents Florida's 22nd congressional district, his bayonet affixed. Pamela Geller chats with Allen West. That's me beside Pamela, my back to the...

    Adherents.com reports that there are 4,200 religions in the world, 22 of which are considered to be “major world religions.” Imagine if it were illegal to criticize one of them. Imagine if that religion claimed 1.5 billion members and included a mandatory, oppressive political system along with the duty to wage continual war against those who will not submit to it. One does not have to imagine this if one lives in The Netherlands. Geert Wilders, a Dutch MP on trial for criticizing Islam, warns that “All over Europe, the lights are slowly going out” because “the ruling elites are...

    Last year, I attended the Dutch trial of the century: that of Geert Wilders, leader of the third-largest party in the Dutch parliament. Sparking the charges against Wilders were about 50 statements that he had made about Islam. Three of the most widely circulated, from newspaper columns that Wilders wrote, will give an idea of the rest: “The heart of the problem is the fascist nature of Islam, the sick ideology of Allah and Mohammed as laid down in the Islamic Mein Kampf: the Koran”; “We have a huge problem with Muslims which crosses boundaries in every field, and we...

    Shalom chaveriem, Let me start by saying that it is with great sadness that I share your grief over the deaths of more than 40 brave Israelis who lost their lives — many while trying to save others in the great fire near Haifa. My country, the Netherlands, is amongst other countries helping to put down this fire, which is threatening the lives and property of thousands of your compatriots. I offer my heartfelt condolences to the families of those who perished. My thoughts are with them. Israel is an immense source of inspiration for me. When I came to...

    When one considers all of the people and places in the West targeted by transnational jihadists over the past few years, iconic targets such as New York’s Times Square, the London Metro and the Eiffel Tower come to mind. There are also certain target sets such as airlines and subways that jihadists focus on more than others. Upon careful reflection, however, it is hard to find any target set that has been more of a magnet for transnational jihadist ire over the past year than the small group of cartoonists and newspapers involved in the Mohammed cartoon controversy. Every year...

    Former Dutch EU commissioner says "recognizable" Jews are no longer safe in Netherlands due to Muslim anti-Semitism. Former European Union Commissioner Frits Bolkenstein said that Jews have no future in the Netherlands and recommended that they emigrate to the US or Israel, Dutch magazine Elsevier reported on Tuesday. According to a book on Dutch Judaism, released this week, Bolkestein, former leader of the right-wing VVD party, said that due to anti-Semitism amongst young Moroccans, Jews who look like Jews - those who wear kippahs or payot - should leave Holland for their own safety. "I see no future for recognizable...

    Europe is the continent that created the Christian civilization of the West, that is now in danger of being destroyed by radical Muslims. The only person in Europe who stands up in passionate defence of Europe's Judeo-Christian civilizational values is Geert Wilders of Holland, who is an atheist. Wilders is a former Catholic who lost his faith and became an atheist. But he has spoken out in defence of the historical role that Christianity and Judaism have played, in creating Europe's prosperity and freedom. He is also Europe's most passionate defender of Israel, and he defends Israel with a zeal...

    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.
