Spencer: Why the ADL is wrong about Geert Wilders
Update:Geert Wilders Not Welcome in Denmark
My column inÂ FrontPageÂ this morning addresses the Anti-Defamation League’s attack on freedom fighter Geert Wilders:
After the heroic Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders spoke in Florida last week, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned his remarks, saying: “In his speeches, he claimed that ‘Islam is not a religion’ and ‘the right to religious freedom should not apply to this totalitarian ideology called Islam.’ Mr. Wilders also stated that the Koran is a book of hatred, and that Mohammed was both ‘a pedophile and a warlord.’”’These are serious charges, but they don’t stand up to close inspection. In light of the fact that the hadith collection that Muslims consider most reliable, Sahih Bukhari, reports no less than five times that Muhammad (then in his fifties) consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine years old, Wilders would have little difficulty making the charge of pedophilia stick. And given that Muhammad participated in numerous battles during his prophetic career, all but one of them offensive, the “warlord” charge can easily be established from texts that Muslims consider accurate in reporting the details of Muhammad’s life.
And the Koran a book of hatred? Again, the book itself gives the answer in passages like these and many others:
- ‘Mr. Islam’ Paralyzes British Student in Knife Attack…
- “Palestinian” Sentenced to Death over Real Estate Transaction…
Robert Spencer at Front Page MagazineÂ reports that the Anti-Defamation League went against Geert Wilders after he spoke at free speech summit in Florida last week, and pretty much took the side of Islamofascism.
This shows that the ADL is a worthless movement that cannot even be relied upon to speak in defense of Israel. The ADL would not even help the Armenian community in their quest for mainstream recognition of Turkey’s massacre of Armenians during WW1. Anyone concerned about jihad should not waste their time with the ADL. Â
