Wilders triumphs

Anti-Islam party’s success worries Dutch Muslims (and CNN)

Geert Wilders’ Victory Speech Translated 10.06.2010 [Video] Islamization Watch

Led by the controversial politician Geert Wilders, the party nearly tripled its representation in parliament, from 9 seats to 24, according to exit polls.

That has Dutch Muslims worried: “Wilders is saying all the time he was wants to stop the Islamicization of Holland,” Spalburg said.

“We are all concerned now. It’s like we are not welcome any more,” said Ibraham Spalburg, the head of SPIOR, an umbrella organization of Muslim groups around the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

And Muslims were not leaving Holland, he added.

“We cannot go away,” he said. “It is our country as well as the country of the Dutch citizens. There are people who have been here 40, 50 years. They are Dutch now.

Really? I think not.

Thanks to Andrew Bolt, we have a video:

Holland – long seen as a liberal, pot-smoking hippie hang-out – seems keen to defend the culture that’s made it so free, to judge from this week’s election:

With 88 per cent of the votes counted, published partial results showed the Liberals with 31 and Labour on 30.

But the real victory went to Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV), which demands an end to immigration from Muslim countries and a ban on new mosques. The PVV took its number of seats from nine in the last parliament to 24, and could hope to enter a coalition government…

“The impossible has happened,” Wilders told a televised party gathering. “We are the biggest winner today. The Netherlands chose more security, less crime, less immigration and less Islam.” …

Mr Balkenende conceded defeat for his Christian Democrats when voters turned against the party, nearly halving its seats from 41 to 21.


The argument is that Wilders and others want to change Holland ~ but the truth is more that they want to keep it the same!

It was almost as if Dutch leaders were preparing for an Islamic country without the Dutch people’s consent. Statements such as those made by the Christian Democrats only added fuel to the fire:

In 2006 Minister of Justice Piet Hein Donner provoked an outcry when he suggested the Netherlands might accept Sharia law in a constitutional manner. “It is a sure certainty for me: if two thirds of all Netherlanders tomorrow would want to introduce Sharia, then this possibility must exist. Could you block this legally? It would also be a scandal to say ‘this isn’t allowed! The majority counts. That is the essence of democracy.” The statements were categorically refused by parties across the political spectrum, as well as by one Muslim leader. [+]

If Dutch leaders believed that the country should move towards an Islamic state ~ then they should have put it on a platform and let people vote for it. But rather they chose the undemocratic way, calling anyone who opposed their mass Islamic immigration policy and Islamization efforts ~ racist and Islamophobic. Ignoring the fact that there is not a single Islamic state that respects the rights of others ~ and this is what many Muslims think is the way forward ~ in Europe. The people who voted for Wilders and even to a certain extent the people who voted for Rutte [who promised to clampdown on immigration marriages], have sent a loud message, by saying, No ~ we the Dutch people don’t want this!

A speech of Geert Wilders after Hollands elections on 9th of June 2010. The PVV had an enormous victory, they went from 9 to 24 seats, and probably can form a coalition with the right winged VVD & christian CDA.
