Geert Wilder's speech to Holland's Parliament

Speaker, allow me, first, to express my sincere thanks to you
personally for having planned a debate on Islam on the very day of my
birthday. I could not have wished for a nicer present! Madam Speaker,
approximately 1400 years ago war was declared on us by an ideology of
hate and violence which arose at the time and was proclaimed by a
barbarian who called himself the Prophet Mohammed.

I am referring to Islam.

Speaker, let me start with the foundation of the Islamic faith, the
Koran. The Koran's core theme is about the duty of all Muslims to fight
non-Muslims; an Islamic Mein Kampf, in which fight means war, jihad.
The Koran is above all a book of war, a call to butcher non-Muslims
(2:191, 3:141, 4:91, 5:3), to roast them (4:56, 69:30-69:32), and to
cause bloodbaths amongst them (47:4). Jews are compared to monkeys and
pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:166), while people who believe in Jesus Christ as
the Son of God must according to the Koran be fought (9:30).

Speaker, the West has no problems with Jews or Christians, but it does
have problems with Islam. It is still possible, even today, for Muslims
to view the Koran, which they regard as valid for all time, as a
licence to kill. And that is exactly what happens. The Koran is worded
in such a way that its instructions are addressed to Muslims for
eternity, which includes today's Muslims. This in contrast to texts in
the Bible, which is formulated as a number of historical narratives,
placing events in a distant past. Let us remind ourselves that it was
Muslims, not Jews or Christians, who committed the catastrophic
terrorist attacks in New York, Madrid and London; and that it was no
coincidence that Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered by a Muslim,
Mohammed Bouyeri.

Madam Speaker, I acknowledge that there are
people who call themselves Muslims and who respect our laws.
My party,
the Freedom Party, has nothing against such people, of course. However,
the Koran does have something against them. For it is stated in the
Koran in Sura 2, verse 85, that those believers who do not believe in
everything the Koran states will be humiliated and receive the severest
punishment; which means that they will roast in Hell.
In other words,
people who call themselves Muslims but who do not believe, for example,
in Sura 9, verse 30, which states that Jews and Christians must be
fought, or, for example, in Sura 5, verse 38, which states that the
hand of a thief must be cut off, such people will be humiliated and
roast in Hell. Note that it is not me who is making this up. All this
can be found in the Koran. The Koran also states that Muslims who
believe in only part of the Koran are in fact apostates, and we know
what has to happen to apostates. They have to be killed.

Speaker, the Koran is a book that incites to violence. I remind the
House that the distribution of such texts is unlawful according to
Article 132 of our Penal Code. In addition, the Koran incites to hatred
and calls for murder and mayhem. The distribution of such texts is made
punishable by Article 137(e).
The Koran is therefore a highly dangerous
book; a book which is completely against our legal order and our
democratic institutions. In this light, it is an absolute necessity
that the Koran be banned for the defence and reinforcement of our
civilisation and our constitutional state. I shall propose a
second-reading motion to that effect.

Madam Speaker, there is no
such thing as "moderate Islam".... As Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan
said the other day, and I quote, "There is no moderate or immoderate
Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it".... Islam is in pursuit of
It wishes to exact its imperialist agenda by force on a
worldwide scale (8:39). This is clear from European history.
Fortunately, the first Islamic invasion of Europe was stopped at
Poitiers in 732; the second in Vienna in 1683. Madam Speaker, let us
ensure that the third Islamic invasion, which is currently in full
spate, will be stopped too in spite of its insidious nature and
notwithstanding the fact that, in contrast to the 8th and 17th
centuries, it has no need for an Islamic army because the scared
"dhimmis" in the West, also those in Dutch politics, have left their
doors wide open to Islam and Muslims.

Apart from conquest, Madam
Speaker, Islam is also bent on installing a totally different form of
law and order, namely Sharia law. This makes Islam, apart from a
religion for hundreds of millions of Muslims also, and in particular, a
political ideology (with political/constitutional/Islamic basic values,
etc). Islam is an ideology without any respect for others; not for
Christians, not for Jews, not for non-believers and not for apostates.
Islam aims to dominate, subject, kill and wage war.

Speaker, the Islamic incursion must be stopped. Islam is the Trojan
Horse in Europe. If we do not stop Islamification now, Eurabia and
Netherabia will just be a matter of time. One century ago, there were
approximately 50 Muslims in the Netherlands. Today, there are about 1
million Muslims in this country. Where will it end?
We are heading for
the end of European and Dutch civilisation as we know it. Where is our
Prime Minister in all this? In reply to my questions in the House he
said, without batting an eyelid, that there is no question of our
country being Islamified. Now, this reply constituted a historical
error as soon as it was uttered. Very many Dutch citizens, Madam
Speaker, experience the presence of Islam around them. nta
And I can report
that they have had enough of burkas, headscarves, the ritual slaughter
of animals, so-called honour revenge, blaring minarets, female
circumcision, hymen restoration operations, abuse of homosexuals,
Turkish and Arabic on the buses and trains as well as on town hall
leaflets, halal meat at grocery shops and department stores, Sharia
exams, the Finance Minister's Sharia mortgages, and the enormous over
tion of Muslims in the area of crime, including Moroccan
street terrorists.

In spite of all this, Madam Speaker, there is
hope. Fortunately. The majority of Dutch citizens have become fully
aware of the danger, and regard Islam as a threat to our culture. My
party, the Freedom Party, takes those citizens seriously and comes to
their defence.

Many Dutch citizens are fed up to the back teeth
and yearn for action. However, their representatives in The Hague are
doing precisely nothing.
They are held back by fear, political
correctness or simply electoral motives. This is particularly clear in
the case of PvdA, the Dutch Labour Party, which is afraid of losing
Muslim voters. The Prime Minister said in Indonesia the other day that
Islam does not pose any danger. Minister Donner believes that Sharia
law should be capable of being introduced in the Netherlands if the
majority want it. Minister Vogelaar babbles about the future
Netherlands as a country with a Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition, and
that she aims to help Islam take root in Dutch society. In saying this,
the Minister shows that she has obviously gone stark raving mad. She is
betraying Dutch culture and insulting Dutch citizens.

Speaker, my party, the Freedom Party, demands that Minister Vogelaar
retract her statement. If the Minister fails to do so, the Freedom
Party parliamentary group will withdraw its support for her. No Islamic
tradition must ever be established in the Netherlands: not now and also
not in a few centuries' time.

Madam Speaker, let me briefly
touch on the government's response to the WRR [Netherlands Scientific
Council for Government Policy] report. On page 12 of its response, the
government states that Islam is not contrary to democracy or human
rights. All I can say to that is that things can't get much more
idiotic than this.

Madam Speaker, it is a few minutes to twelve.
If we go on like this, Islam will herald the end of our Western
civilisation as well as Dutch culture.

I would like to round off
my first-reading contribution with a personal appeal to the Prime
Minister on behalf of a great many Dutch citizens: stop the
Islamification of the Netherlands!

Mr Balkenende, a historic
task rests on your shoulders. Be courageous. Do what many Dutch
citizens are screaming out for. Do what the country needs. Stop all
immigration from Muslim countries, ban all building of new mosques,
close all Islamic schools, ban burkas and the Koran. Expel all criminal
Muslims from the country, including those Moroccan street terrorists
that drive people mad. Accept your responsibility! Stop Islamification!

Enough is enough, Mr Balkenende. Enough is enough."
