Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders

The Hague, Netherlands

Opposing Islam central tenet of Dutch Freedom Party

More about:

The last Dutch party to present its election manifesto, the anti-Islam Freedom Party (PVV) headed by Geert Wilders, has said it will focus on "more security and less immigration". The manifesto was published on Friday in The Hague, ahead of the national elections on 9 June.

The right-wing populist party leader repeated his party's well-known slogans. Mr Wilders wants to achieve "more security" by recruiting an additional 10,000 policemen. "Less immigration" should be realised by imposing an annual quota of 1,000 on asylum seekers, and a ban on immigration from Muslim countries. Non-Dutch residents who commit a crime should be extradited, in the PVV's view. Earlier proposals, such as a headscarf tax and a ban on burqas and the Qur'an are repeated in the manifesto. The party has been in opposition since it entered parliament in 2006.

Referring to the economic crisis affecting the Netherlands, the Freedom Party is proposing drastic cuts. Mr Wilders expects to be able to save 21,000 million euros. His main targets are what he refers to as "left-wing hobbies". Development aid, for instance, should be limited to emergency aid. Drastic cuts are suggested in contributions to the EU budget, and in defence spending. Child support paid to parents whose children do not live in the Netherlands should be cut, and the number of public broadcast channels should be minimised.

The Freedom Party wants to make Dutch foreign policy subservient to the Netherlands' interest, to the exclusion of other considerations. Fighting Islam should be a central tenet, the Freedom Party election manifesto says. The Netherlands should be less involved in international military missions, and the savings which that yields can be transferred to the national police, to fight what the party calls "Moroccan street terrorists" in the Netherlands. The PVV also says that the Netherlands should leave the European Union if Turkey becomes a member state. Another remarkable point is the plan to refer to Jordan as Palestina, because, says the PVV, that country has been the de facto independent Palestinian state since 1946.

The left is out
Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders said his party is ready to govern. But should that fail to happen, his party is willing to support a minority coalition, preferably of the Christian Democrat and Conservative parties. Collabaration with any left-wing parties is an anathema to the PVV.

The hour is late, the cancer of islam has eaten to the very heart of Europe and Britain and they sit precipitously on the edge of the abyss.

In recent weeks and days leaders from around Europe and Britain including The Netherlands, Nicholas Sarkozy of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, David Cameron of Britain, members of Australia's parliament and many others have all condemned the policy of multiculturalism for the destruction, misery, discontent and untold damage it has reeked on their countries, cultures and people.

The prime contributors to the civil unrest, open conflict, acts of terrorism and destruction in each of these countries have been muslims. The muslims have sown seeds of conflict, division, sneering contempt, provocation and open hostility. Without exception, every country muslims have emigrated to has suffered greatly as a result of the presence of their new guests. Muslims have spit upon and bitten the hands of those who have extended hands of welcome, generosity and hospitality. This outrageous ingratitude, this open aggression can no longer be tolerated. The time has come to send our muslim guests home.

Calls are now being made around the world to immediately stop immigration from all islamic countries and to begin the repatriation of all muslims and muslim immigrants who have committed crimes or who espouse radical beliefs. These deportations and repatriations have been called for regardless of the place of birth, back to the Middle East and Africa. In addition to the immediate deportations are calls for laws to be passed banning the wearing of the burqa (the full bodybag covering), the hijab (headscarf) and any face covering by muslim women, this in addition to the banning of outdoor prayer sessions such as the ones seen in Paris and many other European and British cities. In addition, calls are being made to ban the building of mosques and pass laws making criminal all aspects of sharia law. In fact, the Swiss have now banned the building of muslim minarets and the French have banned hijabs/burquas and mass outdoor prayers. This must continue across Europe, Britain and North America.

There are those who will condemn the deportation and repatriation of muslims back to the Middle East and Africa as unjust and harsh. These same persons who would protest the deportation of muslims would say we should not paint all muslims with the same brush. To that assertion, I ask you to recall the last time you witnessed 10,000 "Good, Peaceful, Moderate Muslims" marching in loud and vigorous protest and condemnation of the murderous brutality of the "Bad Muslims" has never happened and never will happen.

(the countries that should be immediately banned are listed as the 57 member states of the Organisation of Islamic Conference)

To dismiss this as melodramatics or rhetoric is to betray your ignorance of the true state of affairs and the clearly stated, oft and loudly repeated goal of muslims and islam; The complete destruction of Western culture and the domination and subjection of all Westerners.

As said, the evidence of the cancerous effects of muslim and islamic presence can be clearly seen around the world. The letter below, an open letter to England, could well and should well, be written to every country who are now hosts to muslims.

Take a few minutes to read the open letter below. Once finished, please send it to all you know and all of those you think may be interested. Time grows short.

Thank you, Don Laird



England and Europe....harvest time is here....... reap your crop.

In Britain you are reaping the sorry crop you have sown, will you now ask us to, once again, cross oceans and spill our blood doing what you refuse to. Have you no shame?

As Britons, as men, you stand idle and indifferent as your heritage, your culture, your history and your country are destroyed. You turn away as social engineers fill your children's heads with poisonous propaganda, turning them into haters of their own people and lovers, nay, worshippers of the black hearted, murderous cancer of islam. The hands of welcome and generosity you extended to muslims have been spat on and bitten. Your sacred traditions, customs and observances including your places of worship have been attacked, mocked and defiled by your muslim guests and you turn away, indifferent. Even your very monarchy suffers threats and derision and you hang your heads and look away. You shuffle away as your women are butchered and raped. You allow yourselves to be herded as cattle at the whim and fancy of your muslim immigrant guests. The very soul of your once great nation is sold to the lowest bidder, the lowest common denominator, criminals and malcontents, from third world countries around the world. You allow your entire lives to be destroyed at the hands of a corrupt bureaucracy, a corrupt judiciary, terrorists and human garbage.

I watch you from across the sicken me.

Now, as spineless cowards, you Britons, trembling and whining, hiding behind the skirts of your women, shuffle quietly down the streets of your towns and cities ignoring the repeated assaults on the very foundation of your country and in so doing you squander our gift to you. The extent of your "revolt", your outrage at the injurious actions of your muslim guests, is to crowd into pubs, miserable bloody drunken slobbering fools, slapping each other on the back and mumbling, slurring "Rule Britannia". The extent of your fight against the cancer of islam are shaking fists and a couple of thrown rocks. Even your war dead; brave, honourable and noble men, who, in their death gave you freedom and whose sacrifice, whose sacred memory and priceless gift is spit upon and insulted by muslims, even this searing outrage fails to raise even the slightest indignation, even the slightest rebuke.......... and still you stand, mute and motionless.

You are beyond contempt.

I am of Scottish descent. My ancestors can be traced back in North America to the landing at Plymouth Rock. My family has, through the past four centuries, poured sweat and spilled blood in the forging of a great nation, Canada. My family is closely tied to the United States of America. As the slogan says on the Peace Arch at Blaine, Washington State, the border crossing between Canada and the United States of America...we truly are "Children of a Common Mother".

Our nations have a rich history of greatness, progress and sacrifice and service to others. I recall our nations, our fathers and grandfathers, crossed oceans to confront a murderous Austrian tyrant, a madman who had set fire to the world. They did not waver, they did not flinch, they stood with clenched fists and grit teeth and, suffering much, gave Europe and Britain her freedom. How then, can the children of the men and women who suffered so greatly under the boot heel of National Socialism, squander the gift we and their forefathers gave them? The gift that is not theirs to squander but to keep sacred, to be passed from generation to generation, to be treated with breathless reverence and to be jealously guarded.. How can they turn a blind eye to the cancerous and corrosive political ideology of islam that threatens to, and has to some degree, destroy our gift to them and make them slaves once again?

Will you ask, once again, for the assistance of the children of North America? Will you petition my children, my sons and daughters, for their lives, their blood to wrest the British people from ''neath the boot heel of islam? Will we answer the call from the children of Saxons, Anglos, Vikings, and the Norse? Will we remember our commonality and rush to your defence? Will we once again cross oceans to confront a scourge and a plague?....or will we turn away indifferent to your enslavement and your suffering?......will we turn our collars up and walk away, the dying screams of the once proud nation of Britain ringing in our ears?

Freedom is precious. Freedom is a gift. England, must you lose your freedom to understand its rarity and worth?

These are difficult times we live in and to quote a song "There's something lurking in the room with me I cannot see but I smell its stinking breath"

The times ahead will be more difficult than you can imagine. History does not speak kindly of those who ignore danger and threat and turn their backs on that which birthed and nourished them. I suppose you and you alone must decide where you stand and where you draw the line in the sand. You and you alone must decide the course of action, the extent of your resolve once that line is crossed.

I am reminded of a line from the movie "Kingdom of Heaven" renders useless the arguments offered by those who, weak of will, follow the murderous direction of others and refuse to act on behalf of those in need.

The King of Jerusalem, counselling a young knight on matters of conscience and courage of conviction, responds to one of his questions, he says, " Even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say that I was told by others to do thus or that virtue was not convenient, this will not suffice".

So England my friend.....what is your convenience?.....what is the depth of your character?.....what is the breadth of your conviction?..... what does Britain and your ancestors mean to you?....What will be your legacy?.....What will your grandchildren say when they speak of you?.....Are you so faint of heart, so timid that you would sell out your very country for a moment or two of peace?. I myself think not......death comes to us all, each and every makes no distinction. The grade is marked on your life and how you lived it. For many, they would say it is better to die on your feet than to live a life of compromise and quiet desperation on your knees and I, for one, am inclined to agree with them.

In closing, I am reminded of the closing paragraph from a Scottish legend, “The Devils Advocate”. I trust these few lines will not be the requiem mass, the epitaph of Western civilization. I trust these will not be the words that ring in your children’s ears as they suffer the murderous brutality of muslims and islam. The choice is yours.

“Evil is among us because we have invited that evil. We suffered much but we brought upon our own sufferings. The Devil would have had no power over us but we gave him that power. We became bondsman because we willed it; we are in despair because we brought despair to our neighbours. We died because we acquiesced in death. We were silent when we should have spoken in behalf of our brothers. For a moments security we looked away when our neighbour was robbed. In behalf of a false peace we postponed a war with evil when we should have not been moved from our places. At every step we compromised, when we knew there is no compromise with hell. If the Devil is guilty we are not guiltless. In his condemnation we are included. In a judgment against him we are also judged. May God have mercy on our souls.”

So what say you England, what say you?

Just a couple of thoughts.....

Islamification of the Netherlands and Europe is a myth and is it's lunacy to believe.

George Jeffreys -please tell us how Dutch Muslims, who are fragmented into two main groups, Moroccans and Turks, pose a "threat of Islamification" to the Netherlands?
There are NO sharia law courts in the Netherlands!
850,000 out of 16 million does not sound like an invasion...(and variances in practice of religion or no practice).
Please do some basic research at Pew, Gallup, Open Society, as well as the Dutch Justice ministry to see that "Islamisering" is a myth, fable, lie, bad story. It is time to wake-up to this myth and place it along side of Holocaust denial and the "Elders if Zion" myths.

I've been to the Netherlands and have met alot of Dutch people, this is no the Netherlands I know! What ever happened to the Netherlands being a becon of 21st century enlightenment?

George Jeffreys 24 April 2010 - 10:48am / UK

The islamic colonisation of Europe must be reversed within a generation or Europe will be thrown into a dark age lasting a thousand years, living under sharia law administered by a European council of medieval mullahs.

Geert Wilders speaks not only for Holland, he speaks for the proud tribe of nations from the Mediterranean to the Baltic whose birthright enshrines the individual liberties and freedoms of which islam is the very antithesis.

Keeping Europe European is neither racist nor fascist. History will record the failure to expel islam from the western world as the greatest betrayal of the culture, identity, heritage and birthright of all future generations.

Get off your knees and fight the spread of islamofascist domination. Support Geert Wilders, a true hero of our time.

Like Malaria, Geert Wilders's prejudice is a life sentence. His behaviors show he is infected with disease of ethnocentrism, i.e. a type of prejudice which maintains that one's own culture's way are right and all other captures' (or religions for that matter) that are different are wrong.

Wilders will first fight the Dutch muslims and then all non-western immigrants. Wilders is going on the road of Nazism and Fascism. To hell with his racist dunghill.

Jon Galt 23 April 2010 - 2:39pm / U.S.A.

Geert Wilders' Party the PVV, opposes the Islamization of the Netherlands.
