Wilders freespeecht in Rome...


Geert Wilders, genodigd in Rome om de "Free Speech Award Oriana Fallaci" in ontvangst te nemen voor zijn tomeloze inzet voor de vrijheid van meningsuiting in het Westen, heeft uiteraard een interessante speech ten beste gegeven om zijn Italiaanse gastgevers en supporters te bedanken. Wij willen u deze speech niet onthouden, zijnde opnieuw een historisch stukje free speech.

Speech by Geert Wilders
Rome, February 19, 2009

Signore e signori, molte grazie. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much.

I feel very honoured to have been invited to speak here in Rome, to speak here in this splendid city, the cradle of our Western civilization.

As you perhaps know, Oriana Fallaci is one of my heroes. She definitely was one of the greatest examples of bravery and honesty. Her brilliant books ‘The Rage and the Pride’ and ‘The Force of Reason’ are my guidelines that inspire me day after day. Mr. Manocchia, Una via per Oriana, thank you very much for remembering the great Oriana Fallaci. The world should remember her forever.

Ladies and gentlemen, following in the footsteps of Oriana Fallaci, I want to warn you for a great threat. This great threat is called Islam.

Islam is build on two rocks. First there is the Koran, Allah’s personal word, with orders that need to be fulfilled by Muslims regardless of place and time. As you know, the Koran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, terrorism, war, Jihad. The Koran calls upon Muslims to kill non-Muslims and he Koran considers Jews to be monkeys and pigs. That is why the great German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer called the Koran inferior. That is why former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Oriana Fallaci compared the Koran to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

Second, there is the so called perfect man: Muhammad. His deeds have to be imitated by all Muslims, and since Muhammad was a warlord and executed prisoners of war we know exactly what to expect. The brave American apostate dr. Wafa Sultan said: “The problem is that the Koran clearly says that Muhammad should be a role model for every Muslim. You are not allowed to criticise him, but you should follow in his footsteps. As a Muslim it is your mission to spread Islam by the sword”.

Please, ladies and gentlemen, let no one fool you: Islam means submission, so there cannot be any mistake about its goal. There are moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam.
- - - - - - - - -
A total of 54 million Muslims live across Europe. In less than half a century the number of Muslims has increased rapidly. The Islamization of Europe affects the European achievements of the last century. The question is: Are we prepared to defend our achievements? Are we prepared to defend the equality of men and women? Are we prepared to defend the equality of homo- and heterosexuals? Are we prepared to defend the separation of Church and State? Are we prepared to defend freedom of speech?

Ladies and gentlemen, I would not qualify myself as a free man. Four and a half years ago I lost my freedom. Since then I am under 24-hour police protection. As if that is not enough, the most radical Dutch Imam claimed 55.000 euros in compensation for his hurt feelings because of ‘Fitna’. The State of Jordan is possibly going to issue a request for my extradition to stand trial in Amman. The Amsterdam Court of Appeal ordered my criminal prosecution for making ‘Fitna’ and for my political views on Islam. And last week the British government refused my entrance into the United Kingdom because me showing ‘Fitna’ in the British House of Lords at the invitation of a British parliamentarian would be a threat to British public security. This is the alarming state of freedom of speech in today’s Europe: Criticizing Islam has become a dangerous activity, criticizing Islam has apparently become a criminal act.

You just saw ‘Fitna’. My name is on the credit roll, but like you have seen, ‘Fitna’ is actually not made by me, but is made by radical Muslims, the Koran and Islam itself. If ‘Fitna’ is considered to be hate speech, then what is the Koran? If I am considered to be a threat to public security, then what is Islam?

The Court’s decision and my ban by the British government are two major victories for Islam. Both institutions have sided with Islam. The first Soviet leader, Lenin, once labelled ignorant people that unknowingly aided his cause as ‘useful idiots’. Well, the Court and the British government are the ‘useful idiots’ of today, and I think they are even proud of it.

The Court’s decision and my ban by the British government are also two major victories for all those who hate freedom of speech.

Freedom of speech — the dearest of our liberties — is under attack in today’s Europe. Oriana Fallaci herself had to live in fear of extradition to Switzerland because of her book ‘The Rage and the Pride’. Recently, Susanne Winter, an Austrian politician, was sentenced to a suspended prison sentence for telling the truth about Muhammad. The Dutch cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot was arrested by ten police men because of his drawings, and on top of all that, we now have the decisions of the Inquisition-like Court in Amsterdam and the Dhimmi British government.

Freedom of speech is no longer a given in Europe. What we once considered to be a natural component of our existence is now something we have to fight for. That is what is at stake. Whether or not I end up in jail is not the most important issue. The question is: Will free speech be put behind bars?

I repeat the words inscribed on the headstone of the murdered Dutch anti-Islam politician dr. Pim Fortuyn, who lies buried here in Italy and would have celebrated his birthday today: ‘loquendi libertatum custodiamus’, let us guard freedom of speech.

That is why I propose the withdrawal of all hate speech legislation in Europe. I propose a European First Amendment. Freedom of speech is the keystone of our Western civilization, it is the keystone of our democracies and the keystone of our freedom. That is why freedom of speech should be extended instead of restricted. Salman Rushdie’s ‘The Satanic Verses’, Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s and Theo van Gogh’s film ‘Submission’, Kurt Westergaard’s cartoons and my documentary ‘Fitna’ should never be banned, but should be protected. As George Orwell once said: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is five to twelve. In Europe, our freedom is at stake. Islam is Europe’s Trojan Horse. The differences between Saudi-Arabia and the Netherlands, between Iran and Italy are blurring. The first Islamic invasion of Europe was stopped at Poitiers in 732. The second Islamic invasion was halted at the gates of Vienna in 1683. Now we have to stop the current — stealth — Islamic invasion. Ladies and gentlemen, once Islam conquered Constantinople, now it wants to conquer Rome. We have to stop the Islamization of Europe, because if we don’t, Europe will become Eurabia.

Fortunately there is some hope. This hope does not come from governments, but from the people. In the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population considers mass immigration to be the number one policy mistake since the Second World War. Another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I am convinced that the public opinion in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain and here in Italy isn’t much different.

We have to maintain our values. We have to maintain our liberties. We have to maintain our civilization. We have to maintain the heritage of Rome, because we owe it to our children.

As Oriana Fallaci once said: “The moment you give up your principles, and your values, you are dead, your culture is dead, your civilization is dead”.

Thank you very much.

Er zijn geen twee islams...


Zijn er twee islams, de een oorlogszuchtig en de ander tolerant en vredelievend? Volgens de Franse juriste en arabiste Anne-Marie Delcambre is dit een westers verzinsel om de onaangename waarheid niet onder ogen te hoeven zien: ,,Tussen islam en islamisme bestaat alleen een gradueel verschil. Het islamisme zit in de islam als het kuiken in het ei."

,,Er is geen goede en slechte islam, zoals er ook geen gematigde islam bestaat. Gematigde moslims bestaan wel:, dat zijn degenen die een deel van hun geloof links laten liggen.’’

Om de islam niet te hoeven betichten van geweld en terreur, hebben niet-islamitische westerlingen en sommige verwesterde moslims de term ’islamisme’ bedacht. Hiermee bedoelen zij een politieke, oorlogszuchtige ideologie die niets te maken zou hebben met de ware islam. Voor hen zijn er twee islams. De ene is verlicht, open, vredelievend, een godsdienst van liefde, tolerantie en vrede – en dit zou de godsdienst zijn zoals die door een overgrote meerderheid in alle rust wordt beleden. De tweede islam, het islamisme, is obscuur en in zichzelf gekeerd, sektarisch, fanatiek en oorlogszuchtig; een politieke, ontspoorde en zieke islam dus die niet te vergelijken is met de eerste, de ware, goede, gematigde, mystieke islam die de broeder is van het christendom en het jodendom, en die door zijn hoge graad van spiritualiteit vele niet-moslims aanzet tot bekering.

De uitvinding van ’de twee islams’ is heel praktisch omdat het de niet-islamitische westerling geruststelt over het karakter van de islam. Maar het is ook een grote leugen omdat er maar één islam is. Eén islam die niet twee gezichten heeft, maar verschillende aspecten. Het mystieke aspect en de terreur zijn twee extremen. Hiertussen bevinden zich vele facetten die altijd naast elkaar hebben bestaan en die alle uit dezelfde bron komen: de Koran, opgevat als het Woord van God dat zich openbaarde in Mohammed, die voor alle moslims, niemand uitgezonderd, het grote voorbeeld is.

Wie de Koran leest, moet wel erkennen dat de geboden van God alleen dan tot vrede oproepen wanneer er geen andere mogelijkheid bestaat. In soera 47, vers 35 staat: ‘Zo versaagt niet / en roept niet op tot de vrede / daar gij toch de overhand hebt / en God met u is.’

Wie zich hier niet aan houdt, maakt zich schuldig aan heiligschennis. De goddelijke boodschap houdt de gelovige gevangen, en deze denkt er geen moment aan te ontsnappen. Zoals de islamoloog en Turkoloog Jean-Paul Roux schrijft in zijn boek Les ordres d’Allah ’(De geboden van Allah’): ,,In de loop der eeuwen zijn er commentaren geschreven over deze teksten, ze zijn uitgelegd, men heeft geprobeerd ze te ontdoen van onduidelijkheden, maar ze zijn nooit in twijfel getrokken. Alle pogingen tot een liberale interpretatie waren gedoemd te mislukken, of het nou gaat om de Moetazilieten in de 9de eeuw, die betoogden dat de Koran niet van boven maar van beneden kwam, of die van de Ismaëlische sjiieten, die de Koran opvatten als een esoterisch geschrift. Iedereen die zijn intelligentie, zijn eigen vermogen tot oordelen gebruikte, moest wel falen, ook al waren zijn conclusies juist, want het is niet mogelijk het beter te weten dan Allah. Dit betekent dat elke historische en epistemologische studie, zoals die in het Westen is gedaan naar de Bijbel en de Evangeliën, ondenkbaar is en inderdaad ook nooit heeft plaatsgevonden.’

Dit is een ernstige kwestie, omdat ze gaat om de vraag of moslims tot in de eeuwigheid opgesloten zitten in hun heilige teksten. Jean-Paul Roux brengt Allahs geboden in kaart: ,,Moet de moslim in sommige gevallen zijn vrouw slaan, van haar scheiden en haar verstoten, vrouwen verbieden ongelovigen te huwen, het drinken van alcohol en kansspelen veroordelen, joden haten, zich inspannen om op alle mogelijk manieren zijn godsdienst op te leggen, ongelovigen doden? Zoals hij ook bescheiden moet zijn, geduldig en nederig, eerlijk, liefdadig, toegewijd aan zijn ouders? Je zou zeggen van wel, omdat elke innovatie laakbaar is en neerkomt op ketterij.’’

Als Jean-Paul Roux, die streeft naar wederzijds begrip en beslist niet wil provoceren, er al zo over denkt, dan hebben we alle reden ons zorgen te maken. Omdat Roux heeft geschreven over het Mongoolse rijk, Iran en Turkije, weet hij dat wat hij zegt van toepassing is op de gehele islamitische wereld. Het gevaar van de islam zit in het totale karakter ervan: het slokt het hele leven van de gelovige op, van de wieg tot het graf, en beheerst alle aspecten van het leven. Daarom is er geen scheiding tussen publiek en privé of politiek en religie. In de islam is er voor alles een regel, of het nou gaat om juridische, politieke of intieme kwesties.

We worden voorgelogen als wordt beweerd dat de islam een geloof is dat wordt gepraktiseerd in de privé-sfeer, zoals het christendom. De islam is tegelijk geloof, wet en recht. De sjaria schrijft voor de ongelovigen te bestrijden of klein te houden, en kent voor moslims vaste straffen voor precies omschreven misdaden (overspel, geloofsafval, blasfemie, diefstal, struikroverij, moord en natuurlijk het drinken van alcohol).

Mohammed is in alles een voorbeeld voor de gelovigen, maar zou dat dan niet gelden voor de passages uit zijn biografie waarin hij bloed laat vergieten, krijgsgevangenen maakt en de buit verdeelt? Martine Gozlan schrijft in haar boek Pour comprendre l’intégrisme islamiste (’Het begrijpen van de radicale islam’) over de twee gezichten van Mohammed; de een gefascineerd door het voorbeeld van Jezus, aangetrokken tot tederheid en gebed, en de Mohammed van Medina, de veroveraar die zich zo nu en dan van zijn wrede, rancuneuze kant laat zien. ,,Deze dualiteit van de islam kan niemand verdonkeremanen’’, schrijft zij. Maar juist op dit punt is haar analyse misleidend: de profeet met twee gezichten, de twee Korans, de islam en het islamisme.

De Speech die Wilders niet mocht geven...

Geert Wilders' speech in the House of Lords -- if he had not been barred from entering the UK
What Wilders would have said if the dhimmi British officials had allowed him in: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much.

Thank you for inviting me. Thank you Lord Pearson and Lady Cox for showing Fitna, and for your gracious invitation. While others look away, you, seem to understand the true tradition of your country, and a flag that still stands for freedom.

This is no ordinary place. This is not just one of England’s tourist attractions. This is a sacred place. This is the mother of all Parliaments, and I am deeply humbled to speak before you.

The Houses of Parliament is where Winston Churchill stood firm, and warned – all throughout the 1930’s – for the dangers looming. Most of the time he stood alone.

In 1982 President Reagan came to the House of Commons, where he did a speech very few people liked. Reagan called upon the West to reject communism and defend freedom. He introduced a phrase: ‘evil empire’. Reagan’s speech stands out as a clarion call to preserve our liberties. I quote: If history teaches anything, it teaches self-delusion in the face of unpleasant facts is folly.

What Reagan meant is that you cannot run away from history, you cannot escape the dangers of ideologies that are out to destroy you. Denial is no option.

Communism was indeed left on the ash heap of history, just as Reagan predicted in his speech in the House of Commons. He lived to see the Berlin Wall coming down, just as Churchill witnessed the implosion of national-socialism.

Today, I come before you to warn of another great threat. It is called Islam. It poses as a religion, but its goals are very worldly: world domination, holy war, sharia law, the end of the separation of church and state, the end of democracy. It is not a religion, it is a political ideology. It demands you respect, but has no respect for you.

There might be moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam. Islam will never change, because it is build on two rocks that are forever, two fundamental beliefs that will never change, and will never go away. First, there is Quran, Allah’s personal word, uncreated, forever, with orders that need to be fulfilled regardless of place or time. And second, there is al-insal al-kamil, the perfect man, Muhammad the role model, whose deeds are to be imitated by all Muslims. And since Muhammad was a warlord and a conqueror we know what to expect.

Islam means submission, so there cannot be any mistake about it’s goal. That’s a given. The question is whether the British people, with its glorious past, is longing for that submission.

We see Islam taking off in the West at an incredible speed. The United Kingdom has seen a rapid growth of the number of Muslims. Over the last ten years, the Muslim population has grown ten times as fast as the rest of society. This has put an enormous pressure on society. Thanks to British politicians who have forgotten about Winston Churchill, the English now have taken the path of least resistance. They give up. They give in.

Thank you very much for letting me into the country. I received a letter from the Secretary of State for the Home Department, kindly disinviting me. I would threaten community relations, and therefore public security in the UK, the letter stated.
For a moment I feared that I would be refused entrance. But I was confident the British government would never sacrifice free speech because of fear of Islam. Britannia rules the waves, and Islam will never rule Britain, so I was confident the Border Agency would let me through. And after all, you have invited stranger creatures than me. Two years ago the House of Commons welcomed Mahmoud Suliman Ahmed Abu Rideh, linked to Al Qaeda. He was invited to Westminster by Lord Ahmed, who met him at Regent’s Park mosque three weeks before. Mr. Rideh, suspected of being a money man for terror groups, was given a SECURITY sticker for his Parliamentary visit.

Well, if you let in this man, than an elected politician from a fellow EU country surely is welcome here too. By letting me speak today you show that Mr Churchill’s spirit is still very much alive. And you prove that the European Union truly is working; the free movement of persons is still one of the pillars of the European project.

But there is still much work to be done. Britain seems to have become a country ruled by fear. A country where civil servants cancel Christmas celebrations to please Muslims. A country where Sharia Courts are part of the legal system. A country where Islamic organizations asked to stop the commemoration of the Holocaust. A country where a primary school cancels a Christmas nativity play because it interfered with an Islamic festival. A country where a school removes the words Christmas and Easter from their calendar so as not to offend Muslims. A country where a teacher punishes two students for refusing to pray to Allah as part of their religious education class. A country where elected members of a town council are told not to eat during daylight hours in town hall meetings during the Ramadan. A country that excels in its hatred of Israel, still the only democracy in the Middle-East. A country whose capitol is becoming ‘Londonistan’.

I would not qualify myself as a free man. Four and a half years ago I lost my freedom. I am under guard permanently, courtesy to those who prefer violence to debate. But for the leftist fan club of islam, that is not enough. They started a legal procedure against me. Three weeks ago the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ordered my criminal prosecution for making ‘Fitna’ and for my views on Islam. I committed what George Orwell called a ‘thought crime’.

You might have seen my name on Fitna’s credit role, but I am not really responsible for that movie. It was made for me. It was actually produced by Muslim extremists, the Quran and Islam itself. If Fitna is considered ‘hate speech’, then how would the Court qualify the Quran, with all it’s calls for violence, and hatred against women and Jews?
Mr. Churchill himself compared the Quran to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Well, I did exactly the same, and that is what they are prosecuting me for.

I wonder if the UK ever put Mr. Churchill on trail.

The Court’s decision and the letter I received form the Secretary of State for the Home Department are two major victories for all those who detest freedom of speech. They are doing Islam’s dirty work. Sharia by proxy. The differences between Saudi-Arabia and Jordan on one hand and Holland and Britain are blurring. Europe is now on the fast track of becoming Eurabia. That is apparently the price we have to pay for the project of mass immigration, and the multicultural project.

Ladies and gentlemen, the dearest of our many freedoms is under attack. In Europe, freedom of speech is no longer a given. What we once considered a natural component of our existence is now something we again have to fight for. That is what is at stake. Whether or not I end up in jail is not the most pressing issue. The question is: Will free speech be put behind bars?

We have to defend freedom of speech.

For the generation of my parents the word ‘London’ is synonymous with hope and freedom. When my country was occupied by the national-socialists the BBC offered a daily glimpse of hope, in the darkness of Nazi tyranny. Millions of my country men listened to it, illegally. The words ‘This Is London’ were a symbol for a better world coming soon. If only the British and Canadian and American soldiers were here.

What will be transmitted forty years from now? Will it still be ‘This Is London’? Or will it be ‘this is Londonistan’? Will it bring us hope, or will it signal the values of Mecca and Medina? Will Britain offer submission or perseverance? Freedom or slavery?

The choice is ours.

Ladies and gentlemen,

We will never apologize for being free. We will never give in. We will never surrender.

Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail.

Thank you very much.
