The entire world's laughing at the stupidity of the American
people and the utter depravity of our elected and media elites. The
whole world 'knows' what American's are not even allowed to speak of in
private; a child born to a moslem is automatically a moslem. It gets
even more laughable when we consider Obama's alleged conversion to
IF, Obama is a Christian as he maintains, it was the sworn
duty of every moslem who attended Obama's first public speech as
President to The Moslem Brotherhood in Cairo. The koran is clear, kill
the infidel for converting to an apostate religion. The foreign media
balked and actually called the president on his current religious
beliefs. Obama reportedly expressed his love for the evening call to
prayer and the notion that all roads led to heaven, which is also
blasphemy to those peace loving savages.
Please pray with boldness for our moslem neighbors. Introduce them to Jesus
Christ, the only Son of God and Savior of my world.
you know why America is in a better state than Europe? Because you
enjoy more freedom than Europeans. And do you know why Americans enjoy
more freedom than Europeans? Because you are still allowed to tell the
truth. In Europe and Canada people are dragged to court for telling the
truth about islam.
I, too, have been dragged to court. I am an
elected member of the house of representatives in the Netherlands. I am
currently standing in court like a common criminal for saying that
islam is a dangerous totalitarian ideology rather than a religion. The
court case is still pending, but I risk a jail sentence of 16 months.
week, my friend Lars Hedegaard, a journalist from Denmark, was fined
because in a private conservation, which was recorded without his
knowing, he had criticised the way women are treated in islamic
another friend, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, a human rights activist
from Austria, was fined because she had criticised islam’s founder
Muhammad. She had said that Muhammad was a pedophile because he had
married a 6-year old girl and raped her when she was 9.
Unfortunately, there are many similar cases.
am especially happy to be in your midst because here I can say what I
want to say without having to fear that I will be dragged to court upon
leaving this church.
My dear American friends, you cannot
imagine how we envy your First Amendment. The day when America follows
the example of Europe and Canada and introduces so-called “hate speech
crimes” which is only used to punish people who are critical of islam,
that day America will have lost its freedom.
My friends, let us hope that this never happens.
week, we celebrated Liberation Day in the Netherlands. We celebrated
the liberation from the Nazi occupation in 1945. Many American
soldiers, including many young Tennesseans, played a decisive role in
the liberation of the Netherlands from nazi tyranny. We are immensely
grateful for that. Young Americans gave their lives so that the Dutch
might be free. I assure you: The Dutch people will never forget this.
however, the Europe which your fathers and grandfathers fought and died
for is not the Europe we are living in today.
I travel the world
to tell people what Europe has become. I wish I could take you all on a
visit to my country and show you what Europe has become. It has changed
beyond recognition as a result of mass immigration. And not just any
mass immigration, but mass immigration driven by the dangerous force of
My friends, I am sorry. I am here today with an unpleasant
message. I am here with a warning. I am here with a battle cry: “Wake
up, Christians of Tennessee. Islam is at your gate.” Do not make the
mistake which Europe made. Do not allow islam to gain a foothold here.
is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by
islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by
persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including
The results can be seen in Europe.
Islam is an
ideology of conquest. It uses two methods to achieve this goal: the
first method is the sword. Do you know what figures on the flag of the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country where Christian churches are banned
and Christians are not even allowed to wear a tiny crucifix? There is a
huge sword on that flag, just below the Islamic creed. The message is
clear. Without the sword islam would not have been able to spread its
The second method is immigration. Islam’s founder
Muhammad himself taught his followers how to conquer through
immigration when they moved from Mecca to Medina. This phenomenon of
conquest through immigration is called al-Hijra. My learned friend Sam
Solomon has written a perfect book about it.
I had a copy of
Sam’s book sent to all the members of the Dutch Parliament. But most of
them are worse than Saint-Thomas in the Bible. Thomas did not believe
what he had not seen. Most politicians refuse to believe the things
they see before their very eyes.
In Europe we have been
experiencing al-Hijra for over 30 years now. Many of our cities have
changed beyond recognition. “In each one of our cities” wrote the
well-known Italian author Oriana Fallaci shortly before her death in
2006, “there is a second city, a state within the state, a government
within the government. A Muslim city, a city ruled by the Koran.” – end
How did the Europeans get into this situation? It
is partly our own fault because we have foolishly adopted the concept
of cultural relativism, which manifests itself in the ideology of
Cultural relativism advocates that all cultures
are equal. However, cultures wither away and die if people no longer
believe that its values are better than those of another culture.
is spreading like wildfire wherever people lack the guts to say that
their values are better than the Islamic values.
is spreading like wildfire because the Koran explicitly tells Muslims
that they are “the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind” and that
non-Muslims are “the worst of creatures.”
Islam is spreading
like wildfire everywhere in the West where political, academic,
cultural and media elites lack the guts to proudly proclaim, as I
believe we all should proclaim:
Judeo-Christian Western culture is far better and far superior to the islamic culture. We must be proud to say so!
is a disaster. Almost everyone acknowledges this today, but few dare
say why. Let me tell you why: Multiculturalism made us tolerate the
intolerant, and now intolerance is annihilating tolerance.
should, in the name of tolerance, claim the right not to tolerate the
intolerant. Let us no longer be afraid and politically correct, let us
be brave and bold. Let us tell the truth about islam.
continue I want to make clear that I do not have a problem with people.
I always make a distinction between the people and the ideology,
between Muslims and islam.
Indeed, I have no problems with
Muslims, but I do have a problem with the totalitarian Islamic ideology
of hate and violence. The fact that there are many so-called moderate
Muslims, does not imply that there exists a moderate islam. A moderate
islam doen not exist and will never exist.
And because there is no such thing as a moderate islam, the islamization of our free Western societies is an enormous danger.
two weeks ago, the British press revealed how the so-called “London
Taliban” is threatening to kill women who do not wear veils in the
London borough of Tower Hamlets.
In some neighbourhoods Islamic
regulations are already being enforced, also on non-Muslims. Women’s
rights are being trampled. We are confronted with headscarves and
burqa’s, polygamy, female genital mutilation, honor-killings where men
murder their wives, daughters or sisters because they do not behave in
accordance with Islamic rules.
Polls show that the influence of
those Muslims who live according to islam’s aggressive requirements is
growing, especially among young people.
Among 15-year-old German Muslims, 40 percent consider islam more important
Muslim university students in Britain, 40 percent support sharia. One
in three of those students considers it legitimate to kill in the name
Christians are asked to follow the example of Jesus.
Muslims are ordered to follow the example of Muhammad. That is why
islam is dangerous. While Christianity preaches love, islam preached
hatred and practizes violence. Hatred and violence for everyone who is
not a Muslim.
Muhammad personally participated in the ethnic
cleansing of Medina, where half the population once was Jewish.
Muhammad helped to chop off their heads. On his deathbed, he ordered
his followers to cleanse Arabia of all Jews and Christians.
To this very day, Christian symbols are prohibited in Saudi-Arabia. If you wear a cross in Saudi Arabia, they sent you to jail.
And now, Europe is beginning to look like Arabia.
today, a poll revealed that in Brussels, the capital of the European
Union, half the islamic youths are anti-semitic. It is dangerous for
Jews to walk the streets in Brussels.
you wear a cross or a kippah in certain urban areas in Europe today,
you risk being beaten up. In the capital of my own country, Amsterdam,
a tram driver was forced to remove his crucifix from sight, while his
Muslim colleagues are allowed to wear the veil.
In June 2008, the
Christian church authorities in the Danish town of Arhus decided to pay
so-called “protection money” to islamic so-called “security guards” who
assure that church goers are not harassed by islamic youths.
March 31st, 2010, Muslims entered the Roman Catholic cathedral of
Cordoba, Spain, and attacked the guards with knives. They claimed the
cathedral was theirs.
Last month, the bishops of Sweden sent out
a letter to priests advising them to avoid converting asylum seekers
from islamic countries to Christianity, because the converts would risk
losing their lives.
the Netherlands, the city authorities in Amsterdam register polygamous
marriages. The authorities in Rotterdam serve only halal meals in
municipal cafeterias. Theaters provide separate seats for women who are
not allowed to sit next to men. Municipal swimming pools have separate
swimming hours for men and women, Muslim lawyers do not have to stand
when the judges enter court rooms.
Meanwhile Jews are no longer
safe on our streets. In Amsterdam, the city of Anne Frank, Jews are
again being harassed in the streets. Even political leaders
acknowledged that life has become unsafe for Jews in Holland. Do you
know what they said? They advised Jews to emigrate. Jews are already
running for Israel. But I say: Jews must not leave, violent Muslims
What is needed, my friends, is a spirit of resistance.
I repeat: What we need is a spirit of
Because resistance to evil is our moral duty. This resistance begins
with expressing our solidarity to Christians, Jews, indeed, to all
people worldwide, who are the victims of islam. There are millions of
We can see what islam has in store for us if we watch the
fate of the Christians in the islamic world, such as the Copts in
Egypt, the Maronites in Lebanon, the Assyrians in Iraq, and Christians
Almost every day, churches are arsoned and Christians are assassinated in islamic countries.
a report on the persecution of Christians in the world, Archbishop Twal
of Jerusalem, wrote recently– I quote: “In the Middle East to be
Christian means accepting that you must make a great sacrifice. All too
often and in many places, Christians suffer various threats. On some
occasions, their homes and churches are burnt, and people are killed.
How many atrocities must we endure before somebody somewhere comes to
our aid?” – end of quote.
Indeed, how many atrocities before we come to their aid?
of tears are flowing from the Middle East, where there is only one safe
haven for Christians. You know where that is. The only place in the
Middle East where Christians are safe is Israel.
That is why
Israel deserves our support. Israel is a safe haven for everyone,
whatever their belief and opinions. Israel is a beacon of light in a
region of total darkness. Israel is fighting our fight.
jihad against Israel is a jihad against all of us. If Israel falls, we,
too, will feel the consequences. If Jerusalem falls, Athens, Rome,
Amsterdam and Nashville will fall. Therefore, we all are Israel. We
should always support Israel!
Today, we are confronted with
political unrest in the Arab countries. The Arab peoples long for
freedom. However, the ideology and culture of islam is so deeply
entrenched in these countries that real freedom is simply impossible as
long as islam remains dominant.
recent poll in post-revolution Egypt found that 85 percent of Egyptians
are convinced that islam’s influence on politics is good, 82 percent
believe that adulterers should be stoned, 84 percent want the death
penalty for apostates. The press refers to the events in the Arab world
today as the Arab spring. I call it the Arab winter.
Islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.
death of Osama bin Laden last week was a victory for the free world,
but we will be confronted with Islamic terrorism as long as islam
exists, because islam’s founder Muhammad himself was a terrorist, worse
than Bin Laden.
And here is another truth: The rise of islam
means the rise of sharia law in our judicial systems. In Europe we
already have sharia wills, sharia schools, sharia banks. Britain even
has sharia courts.
In my own country, the Netherlands, sharia is
being applied by the courts in cases relating to divorce, child
custody, inheritance, and property ownership. Women are always the
victims of this because sharia discriminates women.
This is a disgrace. This is not the way we should treat women.
friends, I told you that we have just remembered Liberation Day to
commemorate the young Americans and all the heroes who offered their
lives to free the Netherlands from nazi tyranny. It would be an insult
to them if we Europeans would give up that precious freedom for another
totalitarian ideology called Islam.
That is the goal for which my party and I work day after day. And we are having success.
the Netherlands, we are successfully starting to roll back islam. The
current Dutch government is a minority government which can only
survive with the backing of my party, the Party for Freedom.
We have 24 seats of the 150 seats in parliament and
we support the government, in return for measures to prohibit certain aspects of sharia law.
We have achieved that the Netherlands will soon ban the burka and the niqaab.
will also restrict immigration from non-Western countries by up to 50%
in the next four years. We are not going to allow islam to steal our
country from us. It was the land of our fathers, it is our land now,
our values are based on Christianity, Judaism and Humanism and we will
pass this on to our children with all the freedoms that the previous
generations have fought for.
Let those who want to rob us from
our freedoms, stay in their own countries. We do not need them. If you
want to wear a burqa, stay in Saudi-Arabia. If you want four wives,
stay in Iran. If you want to live in a country where the islamic
ideology is dominant, stay in Pakistan, if you don’t want to assimilate
in our society, stay in Somalia. But don’t come over here.

instance Dutch and Moroccan, and who repeatedly commit serious crimes,
of their Dutch nationality. We will send them packing, back to their
My friends, what the Party for Freedom has achieved, shows that it can be done. We can fight the islamization of our societies.
friends, here is my warning. Make no mistake: Islam is also coming for
America. In fact, it is already here. America is facing a stealth
jihad, the islamic attempt to introduce sharia law bit by bit. Last
March, a judge in Tampa, Florida, ruled that a lawsuit against a mosque
and involving the control of 2.4 million dollars, should proceed under
My friends, be aware that this is only the
beginning. This is also how it started in Europe. If things continue
like this, you will soon have the same problems as we are currently
Leaders who talk about immigration without mentioning
islam are blind. They ignore the most important problem Europe and
America are facing. I have a message for them: it’s islam stupid!
friends, fortunately, not all politicians are irresponsible. Here, in
Tennessee, brave politicians want to pass legislation which gives the
state the power to declare organisations as terrorist groups and
allowing material supporters of terrorism to be prosecuted. I applaud
them for that. They are true heroes.
Yesterday and today, I met
some of those brave legislators. They told me that Tennessee in
particular is a target of islam. Help them win their battle.
They need your support.
Tennessee is in the frontline, similar legislative initiatives are also
being taken in the states of Oklahoma, Wyoming, South Carolina, Texas,
Florida, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana. It is encouraging to see that so
many politicians are willing to resist islam.
This gives us hope and
courage. I am not a pessimist. We can still turn the tide – even in Europe – if we act today.
There are five things which we must do.
First, we must defend freedom of speech.
is the source of human creativity and development. People and nations
wither away without the freedom to question what is presented to them
as the truth.
Without freedom of speech we risk becoming slaves.
Frederick Douglass, the 19th century black American politician, the son
of a slave, said – I quote – “To suppress free speech is a double
wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the
I have already told you about my court case. This legal
charade will not, however, prevent me from saying the truth. Never. I
will speak out, even if they drag me before 500 courts and threaten to
jail me for a thousand years.
The fact that we are being treated
as criminals for telling the truth must not deter us. We are doomed if
we remain silent or let ourselves be silenced. Let us not forget, this
is our first and most important obligation: defend the right to speak
we must end cultural relativism and political correctness. We must
repeat it over and over again, especially to our children: Our Western
culture based on Christianity and Judaism is superior to the islamic
culture. Our laws are superior to sharia. Our judeo-christian values
are better than islam’s totalitarian rules.
And because they are
superior and better, we must defend them. We must fight for our own
identity, or else we will lose it. We need to be warriors for the good,
because the good is worth fighting for. Neutrality in the face of evil
Third, we must stop the islamization of our countries.
More islam means less freedom. There is enough islam in the West
already. We must stop immigration from non-Western countries, which are
mostly islamic countries. We must expel criminal immigrants. We must
forbid the construction of new hate palaces called mosques.
must also close down all islamic schools because educating children in
a spirit of hate is one of the worst things imaginable. We must
introduce anti-sharia legislation everywhere in the free world. Enough
Fourth, we must take pride in our nations again. We
must cherish and preserve the culture and identity of our country.
Preserving our own culture and identity is the best antidote against
And fifth, last but certainly not least, we must
elect wise and courageous leaders who are brave enough to address the
problems which are facing us, including the threat of islam.
Politicians who have the courage to speak the truth about islam.
Politicians who dare to denounce the devastating results of the multicultural society.
Politicians who –
without political correctness – say: enough is enough.
and I, Americans and Europeans, we belong to a common Western culture.
We share the ideas and ideals of our common Judeo-Christian heritage.
In order to pass this heritage on to our children and grandchildren, we
must stand together, side by side, in our struggle against Islamic
That, my friends, is why I am here. I am here to forge
an alliance. Our international freedom alliance. We must stand together
for the Judeo-Christian West.
We will not allow islam to overrun Israel and Europe, the cradle of the judeo-Christian civilization.
My friends, we will stand together.
We will stand firm.
We will not submit. Never. Not in Israel, not in Europe, not in America. Nowhere.
We will survive.
We will stop islam.
We will defend our freedoms.
We will remain free.
