Geert Wilders speech in Amsterdam court today

Geert WildersFrom the International Free Press Society (Canada)…

The trial of Geert Wilders on five charges of discrimination and inciting hatred, which could result in a hefty fine or jail time if he is found guilty, resumed today in a court in Amsterdam.

The Prosecution and Defense both agree that the trial should start over, albeit for different reasons.

From the beginning, the plaintiffs were not pleased that the Dutch prosecutors felt the criminal case against Geert Wilders should not proceed. Remarkably, the Court of Appeal chose to ignore the recommendations of the prosecutors and proceed with the trial.

The trial was suspended in October 2010 as it was determined that the Chief Judge had acted in a manner which could be prejudicial. Subsequently, another instance of interference surfaced. In response to this turn of events, yet another Judge inappropriately made public comments about the suspension of the trial.

The zeal and determination with which the court is pursuing Geert Wilders even in the face of so many opportunities to put a halt to this farce, bespeaks the application of a kind of law that is foreign to western principles of justice. We should all be alarmed that Shariah law appears to have taken hold in our courtrooms and in the social fabric of western nations against the wishes and unbeknownst to the majority of citizens.

It is imperative that the citizens of free nations fully understand the implications of the actions of unelected officials in courtrooms across the Western world and stand with Geert Wilders and other victims of the Thought Police and reject this stealth movement towards removing our fundamental liberties.

Speaking about free speech, it looks like the British Prime Minister David Cameron is getting the message that ordinary British citizens aren’t going to sit still while the government enables Muslim extremists and silences opposition to their hateful ideology:

  1. The main issue with islam is that it is not simply a religion, but a total way of life, which has religious, political, legal, military, dietary, hygienic, medical, financial and other components.

    The major difference between islam and the religions (I am purposely not using word ‘other’) is that islam requires establishment of specific global government – caliphate – which is supposed to last until the judgment day when all muslims are expected to fight non-muslims and exterminate them.

    That quranic requirement makes islam incompatible with all Western democracies that I know of. Surprising indeed is support given to islam by the members of Western economic and scientific elites – their existence is directly threatened by islam.

    How can Western society preserve its democracy? It is unacceptable to expel the muslims living here on the premise of religious tolerance and freedom of faith.

    The solution is to recognize islam for what it is – militant political doctrine – and strip its protected status provided by its recognition as a religion. Continued ‘free pass’ which part of our society gives to islam is suicidal. We are sitting ducks.

    VoC: I share your concern about Islamic extremism, and also about the influence of Islamic doctrine used to justify their atrocities.

    After nearly 5 years in Caledonia I am results oriented. I don’t think the solution is to tell 1B+ Muslims they’re wrong. What happens if you actually do manage to convince everyone that you’re right about Islam? If your goal is to educate, then that’s fine, but if your goal is to ensure sharia law is not implemented, then you have to force government not to allow it, so there is more than education required.

    Don’t misunderstand – I’m very glad there are people like Wilders helping us to understand Koranic influence in violence and oppression (check out his movie Fitna if you haven’t already seen it!), but I see the ultimate solution as a peaceful civil rights struggle to confront the true enemy: western gov’ts who appease the extremists. You use Dr. King’s methods to expose inequality in law enforcement and government policy.

    If you focus, not on the religion (most Muslims are like most Christians – they don’t follow their church’s teachings, so why unite them against you by attacking their religion?), but rather on the nuts and governments who appease them, people will draw their own conclusions about the influence of Islamic doctrine in the atrocities.

  2. The muslim radicals are very sly and sneaky when it comes to non-muslims trying to understand the quran. They are doing their best to hide true meaning of the verses by ‘sanitizing’ the translations and omitting the concept of ‘abrogation’ where later suras cancel out the earlier one.

    For understanding the quran it is important to know exact chronological order in which the suras were ‘revealed’, not the order in which they were compiled for publication by caliph Utman or someone else.

    Only when general public will actually read and understand the quran’s true menaning they can form informed opinion about the ‘religion of peace’.

    I was horrified to learn it, just like I was horrified to read Vladimir Lenin’s writing. Both are horrible in their cold-blooded practicing of mass murder to advance their goals. We live in difficult times when schools are dumping education for socialist indoctrination and frankly I am not holding my breath about Western public ever learning what they are facing until it is too late and there are burning cars and smashed windows in our streets.

    VoC: I recently re-watched Geert Wilders’ short film Fitna. In case you’ve never seen it, it uses quotes from the Koran to illustrate how extremists are following its teachings, and using it to radicalize other Muslims.

    For the record I still think we have to distinguish between Islam and Islamic extremists. I may be naive but I like what British PM David Cameron had to say on the subject in his Munich speech denouncing multiculturalism:

    “[...] Islam is a religion observed peacefully and devoutly by over a billion people. Islamist extremism is a political ideology supported by a minority. At the furthest end are those who back terrorism to promote their ultimate goal: an entire Islamist realm, governed by an interpretation of Sharia. Move along the spectrum, and you find people who may reject violence, but who accept various parts of the extremist worldview, including real hostility towards Western democracy and liberal values. It is vital that we make this distinction between religion on the one hand, and political ideology on the other. Time and again, people equate the two. They think whether someone is an extremist is dependent on how much they observe their religion. So, they talk about moderate Muslims as if all devout Muslims must be extremist. This is profoundly wrong. Someone can be a devout Muslim and not be an extremist. We need to be clear: Islamist extremism and Islam are not the same thing. [...]”

    Our struggle is not against the 1B+ followers of Islam – it is against the extremists themselves, and governments who appease them. Your point is well taken, however, in order to understand the enormous danger from Islamic extremists, one must understand the hateful doctrine they espouse and spread. As Wilders states at the end of his movie, it is up to Muslims themselves to rip the hateful pages from the Koran.

    Thanks for writing. Mark
