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

deal violently with non-Muslims.

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
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.

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.
Wilders wanted Fitna to be shown on Dutch television,
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
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
Anders Fogh Rasmussen [Send him
mail] denounced the film and said he found the
"expressions extremely offensive." Dutch PM Jan
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

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
Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) are
Geert Wilders doesn`t want us to forget what`s
western civilization in Europe.
A little background is in order. On Nov 2, 2004,
Theo van Gogh was
assassinated on an Amsterdam street by Muslim
Mohammed Bouyeri because of van Gogh`s film
Submission. The film, made in
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
In earlier centuries, Muslim attacks on Europe were
beaten back in military victories at
Lepanto (1571) and
Vienna (1683). Today Islam is accomplishing the goal
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
Multiculturalism, however, rejects that bit of
common sense. It asserts that if we all hold hands
kumbaya-style, then human differences will magically
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
increasing), has brought enemies into our midst. The
European diversity disaster should scare us silly, but
Political Correctness has prevented the prudent
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".
"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.

more short documentaries on immigration-related
