It was an amazing evening – we finally got to see and hear Geert Wilders, the controversial Dutch politician and foe of Islamization. Frankly, a few weeks ago, I thought it would be easier to see a UFO in Toronto than Wilders. Maybe this was the first breath of fresh air after the election, showing that we may get used to discussing controversial opinions instead of having somebody protect us from them.
Of course, since the new House of Commons is not yet session, we were deprived from the militant ignorance of Olivia who would’ve tried to explain the evil nature of that man and why we should keep him out of Canada. (Do you remember how she whined last year about Ann Coulter being admitted to Canada while the terrorist supporter George Galloway was stopped?)
Even the protest of the “progressives” was very lame. They managed to get in front of the Canadian Christian College (where the event took place) less than ten people – few anarchist losers with their black flag. What a decline from the last year, when they were proudly beating up people and breaking windows at the G20 protest.
Four speakers took the stage at the event: Sam Solomon, Rabbi Jonathan Hausman, Ezra Levant, and Geert Wilders.
Charles McVetty from the Canadian Christian College opened with a short introduction on the importance of Wilders’ message and the danger of the radical Islam in Europe and North America.
The author Sam Solomon talked briefly about how Islam emerged in the Arab Peninsula in the 7th century. From the very beginning, it has been a doctrine
based on deception and ruthless and aggressive advancement. Little has changed since then – the methods are the same and the target is the Western civilization at large. Only a few people dare to confront that invasion, the rest keep silent out of fear under the shackles of the political correctness. Geert Wilders is one of those who are brave and talk – his message is alarming, but we can’t ignore it if we are to save our civilization.
The next segment was an interview, which Ezra Levant, a SunTV star and nightmare of the Human Rights Commissions, conducted with Rabbi Jonathan Hausman from Boston. The Rabbi was a very interesting personality – an uncompromising fighter against fanaticism and political stupidity, he wasn’t reluctant to speak up his mind openly.
He had an in-depth knowledge of Islamic radicalism – as a student, he spent several years in Egypt studying colloquial Arabic and the local culture. He never saw such a vile Jew hatred as in that country (and that was in the 1970’s, before Sadat’s assassination).
Ezra asked him why the Jews in the USA are such leftists. Rabbi Hausman replied that many of them are losing focus and moving away from really important issues. For example, some of the Jewish leaders in Boston have embraced the cause of the transgender toilets, which is bizarre to say the least. In his case, the conservatism came from his ancestors, who emigrated from Russia and had a very realistic view of the world around them. His father was a World War II veteran and before the war he never voted for Roosevelt.
The Rabbi has always supported liberty. He figured out the nature of Islam 30 years ago and never underestimated its dangers. It’s a totalitarian ideology, which seeks complete dominance over the state and everyday lives of the people. Of course, this doesn’t apply to all Muslims, because many of them don’t follow all Islamic dogmas.
The smell test when evaluating people’s opinions on those issues is the attitude toward Israel – if a person supports democracy, women’s rights, etc. and at the same time hates Israel, there is something fishy about their views. Because Israel is the country were all those rights are defended.
That’s the reason he supports Geert Wilders – he invited him to his congregation in 2009 and 350 people showed up to listen to him. Many more who weren’t able to attend sent him letters and messages of support.
In conclusion, he suggested that we shouldn’t be afraid to stand against extremism. We also need to educate ourselves about the views of the Islamists by studying their holy texts in order to be able to debate them.
After that Ezra Levant introduced Geert Wilders. He appeared surrounded by his bodyguards, who took positions around the stage.
Wilders started by thanking Canada – today is May 9, the day of the liberation of Europe. Many Canadian soldiers gave their lives in World War II to liberate the Netherlands. The country would never forget them.
Then he warned that his message was not going to be optimistic – Canada must wake up, Islam is at its gates and many people misunderstand that phenomenon. They think that Islam is a religion like any other. The truth is that it is a totalitarian system, whose purpose is to impose total control over the society through its sharia legal code. The violence against Christianity is common. Mohammed, its founder, is nothing like Jesus, he was an evil and violent man.
It’s absurd to talk about “moderate Islam” – the Islam is one (as even the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan observed) and there is nothing moderate about it. A particular Muslim could be moderate as long as he doesn’t follow closely the Islamic doctrine.
At this time, the situation in Canada is not that bad, but in Europe the Islamization is advancing in full force causing huge problems – the Islamic lobby is pushing for changes that will introduce anti-Israeli policies, compliance with sharia, etc.
The Muslims in Europe live in compact masses in cities, refusing to adapt to the local culture. Women’s abuse is routine. The hostility against the West is
appalling – an alarmingly high percentage of the young Muslims in England and Germany prefer sharia to democracy.
Wilders considers his duty to unmask that cult, especially its founder – he is about to release a documentary about the life of Mohammed and show his true nature as a terrorist and pedophile. In his Koran he stated that Muslims have more rights that the “dhimmi”. He personally practiced these views by taking major part in the extermination of the Jews in Medina. Now the situation is the same – you can’t wear a cross or practice Christianity in Saudi Arabia.
There are alarming facts about the surrender of Western Europe to the Muslim barbarism. In a town in Denmark, Muslim thugs forced a local church to pay them protection money in exchange of not harassing the Christians. After the murder of Theo van Gogh, an artist in the Netherlands painted an angel with a message of peace on the outer wall of his atelier. The Muslims from the nearby mosque found the painting offensive, complained and the local authorities forced him to remove it.
That makes the resistance against Islamization important – we can start by showing solidarity with all the victims of Islam. Those are the Copts in Egypt, killed and tortured daily; the Christians of Lebanon, who lost their country. They are also the Jews, the Buddhists, and the apostates of Islam, who had the
misfortune to live in Muslim countries.
Part of that fight is the support for Israel – that country is the only safe haven for Christians in the Middle East. It should be supported by all means, because it is the only democracy there – a small beacon of light in the dark sea of Muslim barbarity. Israel is fighting our fight.
Wilders was sceptical about the current “revolution” in the Arab countries. It will be impossible to achieve freedom and democracy, because the dominance of Islam poisons everything. Islam and democracy are incompatible. If the Muslims ever liberate themselves from Islam, they will achieve a lot. They have talents as many other people in the world, but that backward doctrine cripples them. The example of Israel, a country with a climate similar to that of many Arab countries, with no oil, shows that through determination people can achieve prosperity. Islam is the problem that stops those countries from being
The political correctness in Europe and North America is also a major obstacle. We need politicians who can act. He gave as an example his own party – the Party for Freedom. The Dutch government now is a minority government. It can’t survive without the support of that party. So under his pressure, the government is working now on legislations to ban the burka, limit the economic immigration from Muslim countries by 50% and strip from citizenship and deport immigrants who are repeat offenders. Although the politically correct politicians are reluctant to tackle these issues, those policies are supported by the majority of the Dutch population.
In conclusion, Wilders proposed four measures that in his opinion are crucial for the success of our struggle.
First, we must defend the freedom of speech. The Muslim lobby is doing everything possible to restrict it (like the persecution of Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn in Canada, Wilders’ own trial in Holland, etc.). We must get rid of the hate speech laws, because they benefit only Muslims.
Second, we should end cultural relativism. We must be proud that our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture – this is not racism, it means to admit that the West provides more freedoms and prosperity. The defense of the Judeo-Christian values is essential.
Third, we must stop Islamization. The immigration from Muslim countries should be stopped (with the exception of providing political asylum to the abused minorities from those countries). The criminal immigrants must be deported. Stop the construction of new mosques, close the Islamic schools, because they all spread Muslim radicalism.
Fourth, it is good to be patriotic. We don’t achieve anything by being ashamed of the successes of the Western countries. We can demand the same respect from the immigrants, who choose to move to our countries.
We must stand firmly together against Islam.
After that Geert Wilders answered a few questions and left the stage. His bodyguards swarmed around him and all of them disappeared in the darkness through a side door.
That’s Geert Wilders… A difficult person, who defies all political stereotypes. You may disagree with him, but you can’t ignore his opinions. Actually, this is not exactly true – Toronto Star, CBC, and CTV have successfully pretended that he doesn’t exist, but they have been out of touch with reality on many other issues.
He belongs to the very rare breed of politician who is not afraid to tell the truth. He talks about things that many people see, but not many dare to discuss openly. In his situation, that has been a double-edged sword. On one hand, he is a successful and popular politician. On the other hand, he lives under the constant threat of Muslim barbarity. Both things mean that he is doing something right.
People like him deserve our total support, if we want our civilization to survive.
