Geert Wilders: Israel’s Borders Separate Barbarism and Reason

Dutch politician Geert Wilders praised Israel and highlighted the threat from radical Islam during a recent appearance on Sean Hannity’s program on Fox News. He said “the border of jihad, the border between the West and the barbarism of the east, of Islam, and reason of the West is exactly the border between Israel and the Arab countries”. He described Israel as “a brother” which shares common values with the West. He said “parents in Europe and America can sleep easily at night” because Israeli parents lie awake worrying for the security of their sons.

Mr Wilders who recently published a book, Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me, described the dangers he and his family had faced in the past 8 years. He has faced death threats due to his comments regarding the Islamic faith, has had to live in an army barrack and claimed that his family had to live in a prison cell for half a year due to security concerns. He also stated that he cannot walk freely without security.

While on Hannity’s program, Wilders, who leads the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands –  the third largest political party in the country  - alleged that “Europe is in the process of Islamization” and is “losing the values based on Christianity and Judaism”. He described “cultural relativism” as “the biggest disease in the Western world today.” He criticized politicians for being afraid to say “our own culture and values are far better than the Islamic culture”.

Mr Wilders, who is under 24-hour police protection, said “people don’t feel at home on their own streets” due an enormous influx of Muslim immigrants and mentioned an example that 65% of Moroccan youth in the Netherlands have been detained by Dutch police at least once.

    Islam teaches that the world is divided into two parts. “The world at peace” as they call it, is the world that is living according to the rules of the Quran (including the rule that children and women are the property of men), while that part of the world that hasn’t accepted yet the supreme Islamic laws, is designated as “the world at war”…

    Moderate Muslims might not consciously participate in trying to turn the rest of the world into one global Ummah, they don’t really do anything to prevent it either because they believe they don’t have a choice in the matter as it has been ordained by god.

    Islam is nothing short of a dangerous cult, a cult with more than one billion followers, it should be outlawed by any freedom-loving and rationally-thinking country or state in order to preserve itself.

  • Martin Luther King Jr in 1968 stated if you are anti -Zionist you are anti -semetic….Winston Churchill in 1948 in THE GATHERING STORM states Meinkampf was the new Koran…enough said…

    Geert Wilders è un esponente politico europeo che “osa” affermare il vero sulla natura violenta ed espansionista dell’islam e per questo le vili cancellerie europee tentano di metterlo in un cantuccio e gli islamici tentano di affibbiargli accuse di “islamofobia”, ma sarebbe più giusto ” accusarlo” di capacità di intendere il pericolo incombente sull’Occidente, fiacco e vile, di essere assoggettatodalla spada dell’islam. Troppi petroldollari cuciono la bocca delle dirigenze politiche europee!…..

  • We the people pf the World should stop referring to Islam as a religion because what kind of religion enlists the Almighty in sexual and other forms of slavery, terrorist jihadi attacks on innocent “infidels”, systematized mistreatment of women, and the destruction of churches? Allah loves me because I have just killed dozens of infidel women and children, and captured and kept a few of them for sex slaves. When my two wives objected, I beat them into submission as Allah permits. Later, I’ll sell the slave children, a donkey or two, and perhaps one of the wives to the fat pervert down the street. Allah be praised, I am a pious man. Religion? Not hardly. Islam is nothing more than an evil cult among men to do evil.
    It’s very helpful that islamic degenerates remind us of how barbaric their ideology is and what sort of freaks they use as role models. As dhimmis we all need to understand that our very humanity is never assumed in islam. muslims are supremacists, religious bigots, racists, and sexists. They demonstrate all of this whenever they open their filthy mouths.
    When the western world wakes up will it be to late and our daughters, and
    sisters and mothers are all SEX slaves to some degenerate Abdulah? No wonder
    the West has always gone to war with these barbarians, times may change
    but not these people, recurring evil, generational but doomed, some day and
    soon I hope.

    Mr. Wilders is a leader with morality and courage on his side. There are too few such persons to stand against the ignorance and savagery of those like “salvage” and much worse.

    Real knowledge comes only with great struggle. But, brute stupidity comes for free.

    The best to you and your family Mr. Wilders and to those precious few like you.

  • Ha! Ha! Yes! They are the sub-human barbarians, you are the Chosen civilized ones!

    The irony of Jews promoting this sort of thing, am I the only one who notices it?

    • You’re the only one who is mental.

      • Yes! I am crazy and Muslims are evil! When will Israel open up the Camps on the West Bank to start the Final Solution to the Islamic problem?

        • Sir,
          one of the main things that have constantly characterized antisemites in the last 40 years, has been the “inversion libel”, that is accusing the Jews, that is the victims of nazism – and of the nazis’ arab allies – of doing what the nazis did to to the Jews.
          It is simply idiotic, besides being evil. So much so, that Arabs in Israel have more liberty, representation and higher standards of living than in any of the surrounding muslim satrapies. There has been such a “genocide” of Arabs, that their numbers have grown TENFOLD since 1948!… Besides Arabs in the Knesset (the parliament), Arabs in the Supreme Court, in the police, etc. etc.
          Such is Israel’s alleged “nazism” that Arabs are cured for free in Israeli hospitals, since, in spite of the BILLIONS they received from the taxpayers of the West, they haven’t built hospitals (nor schools, factories, etc.) but have used OUR money to purchase weapons and explosives and to build hundreds of kilometers of underground tunnels and bunkers.
          To people in bad faith like you, spreading baseless hated and antisemitc propaganda,one can only wish to go and live under them.

          • >that Arabs in Israel have more liberty, representation and higher standards of living than in any of the surrounding muslim satrapies

            I love this one, Israel isn’t bad because other places are worse!

            So perhaps you can explain this:

            http://www.amnestyusa.org/our-work/countries/middle-east-and-north-africa/israel-and-occupied-palestinian-territories

            Let me guess, Amnesty International is also a pack of anti-Semites.

            Tell me is it possible to criticize Israel without being a Jew hater?

            Geert Wilders is a bigoted sack of hate mongering scum. If you replaced the word “Muslim” with “Jew” in all that he shrieks you would agree but because he hates who you hate he’s one of the good guys.

        • David Kantor

          I’m fully in favor of “offing” Arabs that murder. If they like to die, why not help them before they kill civilized people.

          • Ah the banality of evil, you don’t have to be German to embrace it.

          • Amen Salvage. And like Salvage says, it’s the other way around, if someone would dare to say something about Israël in public what Wilders says about Muslims, that person wouldn’t even need the 24/7 protection cause he would end up in jail immediatly in the best case. It’s a weird world we live in.

    Hamas Commander Reportedly Urges Hezbollah to Join Forces Against Israel

    JNS.org – Five months after Israeli forces tried to assassinate Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif in Gaza, Deif appears to have signed a letter that the terrorist group claims he wrote in hiding. The letter, addressed to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, expressed Deif’s condolences for the death of Hezbollah terrorists during Sunday’s reported Israeli airstrike in Syria. Deif is said to have survived multiple assassination attempts, but he has not been seen in public for years. According to the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar [...]

    JNS.org – The cracks that had been simply painted over for so long began to show in Ferguson, Mo., in November 2014, but in truth they had begun to open wide much earlier—on Saturday, July 13, 2013. That is when a jury in Sanford, Fla., acquitted George Zimmerman of culpability for the death of a 17-year-old black man, Trayvon Martin. The cracks receded from view over time, as other news obscured them. Then came the evening of Aug. 9, 2014, [...]

    A controversial scene in the season finale of Homeland sparked outrage by comparing former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to a fictional Taliban leader, the UK’s Daily Mail reported. In the season 4 finale episode, which aired on Dec. 21, CIA black ops director Dar Adal, played by F. Murray Abraham, justifies a deal he made with a Taliban leader by referencing Begin. He makes the remarks in a conversation with former CIA director Saul Berenson, a Jewish character played by Mandy [...]

    Shining Light on Fiction During the North Korea-Sony saga, we learned two important lessons. The first is that there are two sides to this story, and neither of them are correct because ultimately we should have neither inappropriate movies nor dictators. The second is that we cannot remain entirely fixed on the religious world, but we also must see beyond the external, secular view of reality. It’s important to ground our Torah-based thoughts into real-life activism. To view our act [...]

    JNS.org – Hollywood has had its share of big-budget biblical flops, but until now, the Exodus narrative has not been among them. Studios have brought Moses to the big screen sparingly, but in ways that defined the image and character of Moses for each generation of audiences. The first biblical epic In 1923, director Cecil B.

    Exodus on Screen (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – The story of the Exodus from Egypt is a tale as old as time itself, to borrow a turn of phrase. It’s retold every Passover, both at the seder table and whenever “The Ten Commandments” is aired on television. But the latest adaptation—Ridley Scott’s epic film, “Exodus: Gods and Kings”—fails to meet expectations. Scott’s “Exodus” alters the source material to service the story and ground the tale, but the attempt to reinvent the biblical narrative becomes laughable. Moses [...]
