Dutch legislator Geert Wilders, a man that has stood up to Islam in the Netherlands and was an attendee at this past weekend’s Muslim Art show where two jihadists were gunned down for trying to attack the event, has decided to respond to that jihad. He’s forming his own Muhammad expo! That’s right, he’s not running. He’s standing.
The UK Telegraph reports:
Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders said on Wednesday he wanted to stage a parliamentary exhibition of the cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed that sparked a deadly shooting in Texas that left two dead.
“I am going to request parliament to exhibit the same cartoons as those that were displayed in Garland,” Mr Wilders told AFP on Wednesday, referring to the Dallas suburb where the shooting took place on Sunday.
Instead of going into hiding and cowering in fear because cowardly jihadists make threats, Wilders wants to put on the same event in his home country.
Wilders, 51, said, “I want to send a message that if you use violence to suppress free speech the only effect is that we’ll do it even more. We must show we’ll not be intimidated.”
“I don’t want to provoke, but at the same time we must show that we’re standing for freedom of speech,” he added.
Since coming to office in 2006, Wilders has been a lightning rod of controversy (but that’s a good thing!). Just last September, following the Islamic State’s advance through the Middle East at the funding of the US government, Wilders told ISIS supporters in the Netherlands, “If you are waving an ISIS flag, you are waving an exit ticket. Leave!”
While many have run from Pamela Geller in the wake of the jihad attack this past Sunday, including professed conservatives, Wilders realizes that unless America does something to stop the spread of the disease known as Islam, it will engulf the US as it has Europe.
“I always said that what has happened in Europe will also happen in America if you don’t stop Islam,” Wilders said in a Fox News interview on Tuesday. He predicted there would be more terrorist actions like the Garland attack on U.S. soil: “I fear you haven’t seen anything yet.”
He also added that giving even more publicity to the cartoons – which many in the Muslim community deem offensive – is the best way to stand up to the terror threat.
Wilders has been targeted by Muslim Congressmen Andre Carson and Keith Ellison as they have requested that Barack Obama ban him from the US.
While Wilders encourages Americans not to stand down against the attack on freedom of speech in America and submit to the Shariah, he is currently facing prosecution in the Netherlands for simply vowing to ensure that fewer Moroccans were allowed in the Netherlands.
He asked those of his party in The Hague is they wanted fewer or more Moroccans in their city and in the Netherlands. Backing him, the crowd shouted that they wanted fewer.
“We’re going to organize that,” he told them.
There is no doubt that cowardly Islamic jihadists will issue their fatwas for Mr. Wilders in the same depraved manner they did for Pamela Geller, and they will be backed openly by Islamic imams like Anjem Choudary.
What is it going to take for people to wake up to what Islam is and what its goals are? Must the people of America have their heads sawed off like those throughout the Middle East? Must they have their wives and children taken as slaves for the followers of Muhammad? Must we endure the Shariah here in the same manner that the UK is facing it?
Time will tell, but as for Mr. Wilders, I wish him well in his endeavors and hope he is successful.
UPDATE: Word is that an event in Florida scheduled for August, which was to host Geert Wilders, has been canceled because the hosts were more cowardly than Islamic jihadists.
