Knock, Knock, Knocking on Europe`s Door—Geert Wilder`s Campaign to Save The West

The
War for Europe
is heating up. Despite the

somnambulism
of many Europeans themselves, immersed
in comfortable lifestyles, immigration realist

Geert Wilders
is stirring the pot to arouse the
public before it`s too late.

And there`s nothing like

telling the truth about Islam
to arouse people.

Wilder, a member of the
Dutch Parliament,
recently released a long-awaited
(and dreaded) short film called Fitna (strife, in
Arabic) to reveal that

violence
was built into Islam from the start.

Fitna is brief, only 15 minutes long, but it packs a
lot into that time. The point is unmistakable:

murderous terrorism
is not the result of a noble
religion being "hijacked"
by extremists who misunderstand the teachings.
Islam`s history is filled with war and bloodshed because
its

holy book has numerous instructions
for followers to
deal violently with non-Muslims.

Exhortations to

slay
the unbeliever are common. Among the major
faiths, only Islam needs to define itself constantly as
(in

George W. Bush`s
words) a

"religion of peace"
because it isn`t. Fitna
leafs through pages of the

Koran
, with pertinent verses highlighted followed by

an act of terrorism
as an example of Koranic
sensibility in action.

The film opens in the first seconds to Surah 8, verse
60…


Prepare for them whatever force and

cavalry
ye are able of gathering
to strike terror
to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies, of
Allah and your enemies.

That scripture is followed by a
film clip of two planes flying into the

World Trade Center
, with a trapped woman`s frantic
call to an emergency operator: "I`m going to die,
aren`t I?… Yes, I`m going to die… I`m going to die.
Please, God… It`s so hot. I`m burning up."

The scene then switches to the horrific Atocha

train station bombing
in Spain, with religious
comments from imams.

What
makes Allah happy?
Allah is happy when non-Muslims get killed.
Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists.
Your (Allah`s) enemies and the enemies of the religion.

Allah, count them and kill them to the last one,
and don`t leave even one.

See for yourself:

JihadWatch
).

Wilders wanted Fitna to be shown on Dutch television,
but

no stations
were brave enough to broadcast it. He
turned to the internet and persuaded Liveleak.com to
post the film. In a short time, it was pulled because of

"threats to our staff of a very serious nature"
. In
a couple days, it was back, so presumably precautions
were taken.

When it comes to telling the truth about the culture
of Islam, no good deed goes unpunished, and the
appeasement brigade has been in full activation mode.
The Secretary General issued a

press release
condemning "hate speech." The Danish
PM

Anders Fogh Rasmussen
 [Send him

mail
] denounced the film and said he found the

"expressions extremely offensive."
Dutch PM Jan
Balkenende

said
he rejected the interpretation that

"equates Islam with violence."
Support for the
free speech that undergirds representative government
has been sadly lacking among Euro-elites in this
episode.

Intimidation works against those who don`t value
freedom.

In a recent survey of the Arab world, 55 percent
polled believed that offensive words were a permissible
excuse for violence [Arabs

In our society, based largely although imperfectly on
reason, it is easy to lose track of the primitive nature
of Islamic fanatics, their

characteristic cruelties
and rigid belief in Muslim
superiority. The public can easily forget Islam`s goal
of world domination under a caliphate, when the ACLU and
the

Council on American Islamic Relations
(CAIR) are

working
to

undermine America
.

Geert Wilders doesn`t want us to forget what`s
important—saving

western civilization in Europe.

A little background is in order. On Nov 2, 2004,
Dutch artist

Theo van Gogh
was

assassinated
on an Amsterdam street by Muslim
Mohammed Bouyeri because of van Gogh`s film

Submission
. The film, made in
partnership with

Ayaan Hirsi Ali
, used Koranic verses to illustrate
Islam`s integral brutality toward women.

At that time, a handful of public figures of the
Netherlands put aside their country`s usual PC reticence
to state the truth about the shocking murder: a well
known Dutch artist was killed because Muslims thought
his ideas were

insulting to Islam.

One of those people speaking out was Geert Wilders.
Shortly after he began discussing the cultural
background to the van Gogh assassination, he received

so many death threats
that 24/7 police protection
was required. Wilders still needs bodyguards today, now
that even more members of the Religion of Peace

want him dead
.

Wilders is not an alienated cultural bomb thrower,
but is an elected member of the Netherlands government.
He is a political leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV),
where he "has

the most loyal following of all political parties
in
the Lower House"
according to polling earlier this
year. He was recently voted the

most popular politician
in the Netherlands. He is
providing much-needed leadership on a vital issue that
many elites prefer to sidestep. He has chosen an unusual
venue—film—to make his point. But living with constant
police protection has deprived him of the normal ways in
which a politician communicates.

Let`s compare Geert Wilders, political leader, to
another elected official on the thorny problem of
leadership in the war for civilization:

George W. Bush has been worst possible war President.
He launched a trillion-dollar military adventure on
foreign soil, while leaving the homeland`s

borders wide open
and the public unconnected to the
ideas underlying the larger clash of cultures. To be
effective, a President must name the enemy and warn the
American people about what happens if the

bad guys win
. Instead, Bush has

honored the ideology of the adversary
in the White
House in his annual

Ramadan dinners
, with little criticism from the
MainStream Media [MSM].

In comparison, Geert Wilders has showed us the brutal
nature of the Islamic foe, revealed by their own
unapologetic words and actions. But other critics of
Islam also focus on its objectionable beliefs and
ideology. Wilders understands those things don`t matter
as much as the idiocy of allowing a fifth column to

establish itself
in your national home. Unwise
immigration can pose a serious danger to a country`s
safety.

In earlier centuries, Muslim attacks on Europe were

beaten back in military victories
at

Tours
(732),

Lepanto
(1571) and

Vienna
(1683). Today Islam is accomplishing the goal
of

conquest
through "terror and migration" as
explained by scholar Bernard Lewis in a

2007 lecture
at the American Enterprise Institute:

“In the eyes of a
fanatical and resolute minority of Muslims, the third
wave of attack on Europe has clearly begun. We should
not delude ourselves as to what it is and what it means.
This time it is taking different forms and two in
particular: terror and migration.

“The subject of terror
has been frequently discussed and in great detail, and I
do not need to say very much about that now. What I do
want to talk about is the other aspect of more
particular relevance to Europe, and that is the

question of migration.

“In earlier times, it was
inconceivable that a Muslim would voluntarily move to a
non-Muslim country. The jurists discuss this subject at
great length in the

textbooks and manuals of shari`a,
but in a different
form: is it permissible for a Muslim to live in or even
visit a non-Muslim country?”

One of the best things about the
nation-state is its boundaries that ideally

keep out people who have hostile intentions
and
antithetical values.

Multiculturalism
, however, rejects that bit of
common sense. It asserts that if we all hold hands
kumbaya
-style, then human differences will magically
disappear.

But someone from the diversity
committee forgot to tell the Muslims, because they are
still bent on blowing us up.

Multicultural immigration, particularly Muslim (which
has been

increasing
), has brought enemies into our midst. The
European diversity disaster should scare us silly, but
Political Correctness has prevented the prudent
precaution of

denying immigration
to certain groups on a

national security
basis.

The poet Robert Frost famously

defined a liberal
as someone "too broadminded to
take his own side in a quarrel"
.

Similarly, liberal societies are too broadminded in a
multicultural sort of way to

admit
that the West

really is better
than Third-World backwaters of
cultural cruelty, misogyny and dysfunction.

 As
Wilders says
:

"I really believe that
the Koran is a fascist book and Islam—which is more
ideology, according to me, than religion—is something
that is at least very bad for our values and our
society. I`m not a cultural relativist. I believe that
we should be proud of our culture. Our culture is far
better than the more retarded Islamic culture."

Fitna is his plea that the West stop
committing suicide through Muslim immigration. We should
watch and listen.

she hopes the success of Fitna spurs the production of
more short documentaries on immigration-related
subjects.
