Geert Wilders, chairman Party for Freedom, the Netherlands
Speech at the Four Seasons, New York
September 25, 2008
Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons.
I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts
January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a
row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that's
new to me.
It's great to be in New York. When I see the skyscrapers and office buildings,
I think of what Ayn Rand said: "The sky over New York and the will
of man made visible." Of course. Without the Dutch you would have
been nowhere, still figuring out how to buy this island from the Indians.
But we are glad we did it for you. And, frankly, you did a far better
job than we possibly could have done.
I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There
is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.
We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not
only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it
is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger
I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The
United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic
Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?
Patriots from around Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely
this scenario form becoming a reality.
My short lecture consists of 4 parts.
First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will
say a few things about Islam. Thirdly, if you are still here, I will talk
a little bit about the movie you just saw. To close I will tell you about
a meeting in Jerusalem.
The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks.
The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome's ancient buildings and
maybe the canals of Amsterdam. They are still there. And they still look
very much the same as they did a hundred years ago.
But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist
destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see - and
one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of
the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout
Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very
few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might
regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves,
where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a
group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk
three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corner. The shops have
signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic
activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These
are Muslim neighbourhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across
Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly
larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhood,
city by city.
There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations
than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans
to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly,
the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam,
Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18
population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighbourhoods.
Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.
In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned,
because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an
insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve
halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up
almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear "whore,
whore". Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but
to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised
to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot;
the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust
can in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In
England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system.
Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.
Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels,
because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in
record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World
War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya,
Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University
recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in
Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted
a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening
if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there
are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French
Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France.
One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British
Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students
are in favour of a worldwide caliphate. A Dutch study reported that half
of Dutch Muslims admit they "understand" the 9/11 attacks.
Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them
respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give up. In my own country
we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to turn Muslim holidays
into official state holidays, to statements by another cabinet member,
that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation by the Christian-Democratic
attorney general that he is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands
if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports
from Morocco and Turkey.
Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty
crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and
bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the
low-income suburbs, the banlieus. Some prefer to see these as isolated
incidents, but I call it a Muslim intifada. I call the perpetrators "settlers".
Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our
societies, they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.
Therefore, they are settlers.
Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against
non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods,
their cities, their countries.
Politicians shy away from taking a stand against this creeping sharia.
They believe in the equality of all cultures. Moreover, on a mundane level,
Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
Our many problems with Islam cannot be explained by poverty, repression
or the European colonial past, as the Left claims. Nor does it have anything
to do with Palestinians or American troops in Iraq. The problem is Islam
Allow me to give you a brief Islam 101. The first thing you need to know
about Islam is the importance of the book of the Quran. The Quran is Allah's
personal word, revealed by an angel to Mohammed, the prophet. This is
where the trouble starts. Every word in the Quran is Allah's word and
therefore not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every
Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such a thing as moderate
Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims. But a moderate Islam
The Quran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, and terrorism.
The Quran calls for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, to terrorize non-Muslims
and to fulfil their duty to wage war: violent jihad. Jihad is a duty for
every Muslim, Islam is to rule the world - by the sword. The Quran is
clearly anti-Semitic, describing Jews as monkeys and pigs.
The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet.
His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now,
if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother
Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a
warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at
the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how
he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed
himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. He advised on matters
of slavery, but never advised to liberate slaves. Islam has no other morality
than the advancement of Islam. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If
it is bad for Islam, it is bad. There is no gray area or other side.
Quran as Allah's own word and Mohammed as the perfect man are the two
most important facets of Islam. Let no one fool you about Islam being
a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But
in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays
down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants
to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not
compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is
sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism
or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
This is what you need to know about Islam, in order to understand what
is going on in Europe. For millions of Muslims the Quran and the live
of Mohammed are not 14 centuries old, but are an everyday reality, an
ideal, that guide every aspect of their lives. Now you know why Winston
Churchill called Islam "the most retrograde force in the world",
and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.
Which brings me to my movie, Fitna.
I am a lawmaker, and not a movie maker. But I felt I had the moral duty
to educate about Islam. The duty to make clear that the Quran stands at
the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad.
I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam,
and do not belong to its fringes.
Now, from the day the plan for my movie was made public, it caused quite
a stir, in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. First, there was a political
storm, with government leaders, across the continent in sheer panic. The
Netherlands was put under a heightened terror alert, because of possible
attacks or a revolt by our Muslim population. The Dutch branch of the
Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir declared that the Netherlands was
due for an attack. Internationally, there was a series of incidents. The
Taliban threatened to organize additional attacks against Dutch troops
in Afghanistan, and a website linked to Al Qaeda published the message
that I ought to be killed, while various muftis in the Middle East stated
that I would be responsible for all the bloodshed after the screening
of the movie. In Afghanistan and Pakistan the Dutch flag was burned on
several occasions. Dolls representing me were also burned. The Indonesian
President announced that I will never be admitted into Indonesia again,
while the UN Secretary General and the European Union issued cowardly
statements in the same vein as those made by the Dutch Government. I could
go on and on. It was an absolute disgrace, a sell-out.
A plethora of legal troubles also followed, and have not ended yet. Currently
the state of Jordan is litigating against me. Only last week there were
renewed security agency reports about a heightened terror alert for the
Netherlands because of Fitna.
Now, I would like to say a few things about Israel. Because, very soon,
we will get together in its capitol. The best way for a politician in
Europe to loose votes is to say something positive about Israel. The public
has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel
as the aggressor. I, however, will continue to speak up for Israel. I
see defending Israel as a matter of principle. I have lived in this country
and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is
the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including
Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel
is our first line of defense.
Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: "Islam has bloody borders".
Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated
on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel
is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines,
Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel
is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against
the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant
for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism
would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for
conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army
and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and
dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address
the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid,
to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean
our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and
accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous
encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see
the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end
of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only
the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.
If they can get Israel, they can get everything. Therefore, it is not
that the West has a stake in Israel. It is Israel.
It is very difficult to be an optimist in the face of the growing Islamization
of Europe. All the tides are against us. On all fronts we are losing.
Demographically the momentum is with Islam. Muslim immigration is even
a source of pride within ruling liberal parties. Academia, the arts, the
media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political
establishment have all converted to the suicidal theory of multiculturalism.
So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization
as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. The entire establishment has
sided with our enemy. Leftists, liberals and Christian-Democrats are now
all in bed with Islam.
This is the most painful thing to see: the betrayal by our elites. At
this moment in Europe's history, our elites are supposed to lead us. To
stand up for centuries of civilization. To defend our heritage. To honour
our eternal Judeo-Christian values that made Europe what it is today.
But there are very few signs of hope to be seen at the governmental level.
Sarkozy, Merkel, Brown, Berlusconi; in private, they probably know how
grave the situation is. But when the little red light goes on, they stare
into the camera and tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, and we
should all try to get along nicely and sing Kumbaya. They willingly participate
in, what President Reagan so aptly called: "the betrayal of our past,
the squandering of our freedom."
If there is hope in Europe, it comes from the people, not from the elites.
Change can only come from a grass-roots level. It has to come from the
citizens themselves. Yet these patriots will have to take on the entire
political, legal and media establishment.
Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs
of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their
backs on freedom, the public does not. In my country, the Netherlands,
60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims
as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent
sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I don't think
the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.
Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My
own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it
stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded
parties in Europe. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are
gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at the time.
Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and
exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something
that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also
be Europe's last chance.
This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. Thanks to Professor
Aryeh Eldad, a member of Knesset, we will be able to watch Fitna in the
Knesset building and discuss the jihad. We are organizing this event in
Israel to emphasize the fact that we are all in the same boat together,
and that Israel is part of our common heritage. Those attending will be
a select audience. No racist organizations will be allowed. And we will
only admit parties that are solidly democratic.
This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots.
This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political
parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your
This endeavor may be crucial to America and to the West. America may
hold fast to the dream that, thanks tot its location, it is safe from
jihad and shaira. But seven years ago to the day, there was still smoke
rising from ground zero, following the attacks that forever shattered
that dream. Yet there is a danger even greater danger than terrorist attacks,
the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out
in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe
without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual
nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will
turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe,
it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens
Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never
had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter,
by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American
cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose
memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely
its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's
children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike
a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive
us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right
to do so.
This is not the first time our civilization is under threat. We have
seen dangers before. We have been betrayed by our elites before. They
have sided with our enemies before. And yet, then, freedom prevailed.
These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation,
giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw
lessons from Mr. Chamberlain. These are times calling us to draw lessons
from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:
"Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or
small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and
good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming
might of the enemy".
