Wilders i Jerusalem

Igår samlades en mängd anti-jihadister i
Jerusalem på inbjudan av Knessetledamoten
dr Arieh Eldad. Konferensen kallades Facing
Jihad och var ett varningsrop till Västerlandets
politiker, som självklart de flesta valde att
Den som definitivt skakade om deltagarna var som
vanligt Geert Wilders. Ett kort utdrag ur hans läs-
värda tal:
More than forty years ago a British politician gave a
famous speech. He stated that, looking into the future,
he saw ‘rivers of blood’ as a result of the uncontrolled
influx of immigrants. Enoch Powell’s speech was the
starting point of a debate on mass immigration in
Europe. As usual, the leftist establishment labeled
him an extremist and his career went down. But the
British people loved him, and supported Powell.
London’s dock workers took him to their hearts,
marching by the thousands in support of Mr. Powell.
Looking back, I share Enoch Powell’s alarmist views
on mass immigration, but ‘rivers of blood’ is not
something I see happening. We will not face civil war.
Our political elite is trying to make us believe that the
influx of Muslim immigrants is similar to the waves of
immigration that took place centuries ago. Or they say
that “Christianity developed towards modernity, and
therefore Islam will do the same”.
How are we to remain a democracy if a large part of
the growing Muslim population is in favour of introducing
sharia law?
How is Amsterdam to remain the gay capitol of Europe if
gays are regularly beaten up by non western immigrants,
often Muslims? How are the Jewish communities of Europe
to survive with a growing presence of an ideology that is
so blatantly anti-Semitic? How are we to remain a centre
of cultural and scientific excellence if Islam opposes art,
and academic exploration? How are we to remain an
open and tolerant society if we are faced with part of
the Muslim community favouring self-segregation and
showing no desire for assimilation? How can we look
to the future with confidence, when a large part of
the population turns to a seventh century desert for
These are the questions the multiculturalists don’t
want to answer.Instead of providing leadership our
political elite fooled us by using our own principles
against us. I will give you five examples.
First. Our tolerance is used as an argument to bring
in more Islam, to bring in more Muslims, and a way
to tell us that we should not criticize their Islamic
culture, if you do you are labeled intolerant and
Second. Democracy. A growing Muslim electorate
is too hard for politicians to resist, so they give in to
their grievances and demands to win their vote.
Before long sharia law will be introduced, legally
and democratically, by means of majority vote.
The former Dutch Minister of Justice once said that
sharia law could be part of the Dutch legal system
if a two third majority of the population would be
in favour of it.
Third. Our religious freedom is utilized by an
ideology that has no plans whatsoever to play
by our rules, yet demands the same rights our
traditional religions have had for centuries;
Fourth. Our welfare state that once was the
envy of the world, now functions as a magnet
for a lot of non-Western immigrants, dreaming
of a cushy life in wealthy Europe.
Fifth. Our open borders came to symbolize our
open mindset, an example of our cosmopolitan
hospitality. But now we have lost control of
our borders and we can’t even keep track of
who is entering our countries, let alone prevent
them from entering.
Our Western principles are hollow if they are not
accompanied by a desire to sustain our culture
and our civilization, based upon knowing who
we are and where we come from.
We are not from Saudi-Arabia. We are not from Iran.
We come from Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.
That makes our civilization special, and certainly
worth preserving.
