Geert Wilders, Dutch extremist MP
In November 2007, the racist and extremist Dutch MP Geert Wilders announced he was working on a film about the Qur’an as « a source of inspiration for intolerance, murder and terror », and incited non-Muslims to « tear up and throw away half the Koran ». The background to the 10 minute long anti-Islam and anti-Muslim Dutch movie of Geert Wilders is well known, and is due to be screened end January 2008. It is the duty of every Muslim to defend the Holy Qur’an and Islam robustly. Those who argue that silence is the best response to such a frontal attack against the religion believed by hundreds of millions of people to be from God as revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad via Angel Gabriel can only be the enemies of Islam and Muslims alike.
Geert Wilders, a Catholic turned Atheist, is the leader of the racist, fascist and extremist Freedom Party in Holland. He is a staunch supporter of Zionism and Israel, and an Islamophobe. His frontal attack on the Qur’an also includes the following : « This fascist book, in which the sick ideology of Allah and Mohammed is written down, has to be banned, just like Hitler's Mein Kampf. I have had enough of the Koran in the Netherlands. » He added : « No Muslim immigrants should enter our country any more. »
The MP Geert Wilders and his followers have been terrorising Muslims in Holland, and inciting non-Muslims against them and their religion. It is in this context that he has made a hate-film to galvanise non-Muslim public opinion against Muslims in line with his Zionist agenda in the knowledge that the Holy Qur’an is a source of inspiration for Muslims to defend themselves against Zionists atrocities, and those who are supporting and sponsoring such atrocities against Muslims around the world, including Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Although the Dutch ruling coalition has distanced itself from Wilders’ call to ban the Holy Qur’an, his Freedom Party of incitement and hate is still operating freely and with impunity. After all, the film can only be screened to the public after being granted a certificate from the Dutch Board of Film Censors because freedom of expression is not absolute. Syria's Grand Mufti Ahmad Badr al-Din Hassoun said that if the Freedom Party leader tears up or burns a Koran in his film, « this will simply mean he is inciting wars and bloodshed. And he will be responsible. It is the responsibility of the Dutch people to stop Wilders. » On the other hand, President Ahmadinejad of Iran spoke of a Zionist conspiracy as Zionism only survives on wars and bloodshed.
Wilders campaign is comparable to the Zionist-controlled Jyllen-Posten’s publication of racist cartoons in Denmark depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist, to the blasphemy of Salman Rushdie in his Satanic Verses, to the depiction of the Prophet with a dog’s body published in the pro-Zionist newspaper Nerikes Allehanda in Sweden and to the Jewish Ukrainian Jack Straw, British MP, in demanding Muslim women to remove their veils which he described as a visible sign of separation.
Muslims in Europe and elsewhere should campaign to have the Dutch fascist Freedom Party of incitement and hate of Geert Wilders disbanded and declared a terrorist party. Geert Wilders himself should be prosecuted for inciting racial and religious hatred, whether or not his film is screened. Silence as advocated by the likes of "European of the Year" Tariq Ramadan can only be perceived as a dagger-thrust into the heart of Islam. The Holy Qur’an makes it the duty of every Muslim to defend Islam and the Holy Prophet against attack and not to be silent about it.
