Geert Wilders is an international hero.
Had there been a few more Geert Wilders in Europe during the rise of Nazi power in Germany, there might not have been a WW II and 50 million people killed.
Some people call Wilders, a member of Dutch Parliament, a radical menace. That’s because he speaks the truth about the threat of radical Islam around the world, not only in his country. While politicians typically tip-toe around the radical Islamic issue, forever apologizing to Muslims in general and assuring us all that the radicals are but a tiny fraction of the so-called “peaceful” religion, few have the cajones to stand up and speak truthfully to the free world.
In the January 18th issue of USA Today, journalist Lewis Simons writes about the most peaceful of all Muslim countries, Indonesia. In it, he cites the country’s director of counter terrorism Ansyaad Mbai, who states only two percent of their population are Islamic extremists.
Not much, eh? Two percent of Indonesia, is four million people. And that doesn’t count the supporters who provide assistance with funding, housing, weaponry, etc.,
Four million! Within the most peaceful of Islamic nations. That’s a helluva army.
What are the numbers of radicals and extremists in the mid-east? In Pakistan? In Russia, China, India, Thailand and yes, the western hemisphere? And, according to the Indonesian government, the radicals are preached and funded by Wahhabite clerics from Saudi Arabia…our so-called “friends” who have been spending zillions in the United States and Europe fomenting advances for Islamic domination.
According to the consensus of experts and scholars who constantly study this issue, roughly 15 percent of the world of Islam could be considered jihadists — or radical extremists — or those who are in support of jihad. Fifteen percent of 1.3 billion Muslims in the world, equals approximately 200 million. That’s not just a formidable enemy — that’s a winning enemy. And they are spending just as much for propaganda and government intimidation, as they are on terror and infiltration. And those of us, meaning government and media, who capitulate to the extremists — as the Dutch government is doing — emboldens the enemy even more, because it proves their tactics win.
Thus, there are few Geert Wilders in the world who have the guts to raise the alarm. In the U.S., a handful of politicians have had to courage to sound the alarm, among those, Rep. Sue Myrick of NC and Rep. Peter King, of New York. Former speaker, Newt Gingrich, has also been forthcoming and instructive with his warnings about the threat of radical Islam — not only from terror, but stealth infiltration. Regardless of opinion and political affiliation, everyone recognizes Gingrich as a knowledgeable scholar when it comes to this subject. Please view this 5 minute video when he recently spoke to the National Press Club.
Geert Wilders needs the support of the free world. I have sent a letter to the Dutch consulate in Miami, Florida denouncing the prosecution of Mr. Wilders, and urge everyone to do the same in their state. Here’s a link which lists all the addresses to Dutch embassies, scroll to the bottom for the U.S. addresses.
Holland has always been a staunch ally of the west in its protection of free speech. Now it appears the old traditions have been abolished. Millions across the free world will be watching with great concern to see whether or not the Dutch government still stands for liberty and still stands with their allies.
We urge the Government to immediately drop all charges and Free Geert Wilders.
