Fanatics are on rise andÂ Labour has let it happen
His planned “crime” was to screen a short documentary at a private viewing in the House of Lords.
It’s worth raising today after the Â£2,500 hand-out to sinister Jordanian Abu Qatada and the imminent arrival of Ethiopian terror suspect Binyam Mohamed.
Wilders’ film links horrific acts of terror with verses from the Koran recorded in taped rants by terrorists before their slaughter of the innocents.
I haven’t seen the film because it has been blocked on the internet.
But neither had Labour MP Keith Vaz when he went on TV to justify the veto.
Vaz said he didn’t need to. Nor did he need any precedent for such draconian censorship. Every decision should be considered on its “merits” â€” by people like himself, of course.
Our cringing surrender to this authoritarian, book-burning mentality was ordered by mealy-mouthed Home Secretary Jacqui Smith under pressure from Labour peer Lord Ahmed.
Lord Ahmed, who warned of mob demos, is the Pakistani-born Labour donor who once ignored protests and invited rabid anti-Semite Israel Shamir into the Lords.
Some extreme interpretations of the Koran teach that Jews and homosexuals are fit only for extermination â€” which is why Hitler was so popular in parts of the Arab world.
Wilders’ visit would have gone unnoticed but for Jackboot Jacqui, whose Government has prostrated itself to accommodate Islam’s nastier fringes.
She famously tried to detoxify events like 7/7 by describing them as “anti-Islamic activities” â€” as if the killers were shootingÂ THEMSELVESÂ in the foot!
Labour’s refusal to act against extremism allowed such vile religious perverts as Abu “Hookie” Hamza to flourish.
It gave oxygen to rabble-rousing imams who brainwashed thousands of young British-born Muslims, not least the 7/7 murderers.
It turned a blind eye to migrants who refuse to assimilate and instead colonise whole suburbs and cities where welfare has become a way of life.
It encouraged multi-culturalism which, far from spreading tolerance, has entrenched primitive tribal customs, including forced marriages and honour killings.
As a result, our security services are at breaking point keeping tabs on an army of shadowy troublemakers who flit back and forth to Pakistan â€” many to be trained inOURÂ mass murder.
Of course, Islam extremism is rife in all EU countries.
In Geert Wilders’ Holland, the penalty for criticising Islam is death â€” as filmmaker Theo van Gogh shockingly learned.
France is constitutionally secular, but many schools cannot make educational visits to cathedrals, serve meals without a halal option or allow mixed swimming lessons. So, while acknowledging that most Muslims are decent, peaceful and law-abiding, it is impossible to disagree with what Wilders has to say about extremists. He told an American audience recently: “The Europe you know is changing. You have seen the landmarks. The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome’s ancient buildings, the canals of Amsterdam.
“They are still there. And they still look very much the same as they did a hundred years ago. But a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world very few visitors see.
“Throughout Europe a new reality is rising, entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.
“It’s the world of headscarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Â “Their husbands â€” or slaveholders, if you prefer â€” walk three steps ahead.
“With mosques on many street corners, shops have signs you 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.Â “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.”
Sounds about right to me…
