1. Geert Wilders’ Speech in the House of Lords

Gates of Vienna 8 March 2010

 

Thank you. It is great to be back in London. And it is great that this time, I got to see more of this wonderful city than just the detention centre at Heathrow Airport.

Today I stand before you, in this extraordinary place. Indeed, this is a sacred place. This is, as Malcolm always says, the mother of all Parliaments, I am deeply humbled to have the opportunity to speak before you.

Thank you Lord Pearson and Lady Cox for your invitation and showing my film Fitna. Thank you my friends for inviting me.

I first have great news. Last Wednesday city council elections were held in the Netherlands. And for the first time my party, the Freedom Party, took part in these local elections. We participated in two cities. In Almere, one of the largest Dutch cities. And in The Hague, the third largest city; home of the government, the parliament and the queen. And, we did great! In one fell swoop my party became the largest party in Almere and the second largest party in The Hague. Great news for the Freedom Party and even better news for the people of these two beautiful cities.

And I have more good news. Two weeks ago the Dutch government collapsed. In June we will have parliamentary elections. And the future for the Freedom Party looks great. According to some polls we will become the largest party in the Netherlands. I want to be modest, but who knows, I might even be Prime Minister in a few months time!

Ladies and gentlemen, not far from here stands a statue of the greatest Prime Minister your country ever had. And I would like to quote him here today: “Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the World. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step (…) the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.” These words are from none other than Winston Churchill wrote this in his book ‘The River War’ from 1899.

Churchill was right.

Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t have a problem and my party does not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. The majority of Muslims are law-abiding citizens and want to live a peaceful life as you and I do. I know that. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people, the Muslims, and the ideology, between Islam and Muslims. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.

Islam strives for world domination. The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad. The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law. The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

As former Turkish Prime Minister Erbakan said: “The whole of Europe will become Islamic. We will conquer Rome”. End of quote.

Libyan dictator Gaddafi said: “There are tens of millions of Muslims in the European continent today and their number is on the increase. This is the clear indication that the European continent will be converted into Islam. Europe will one day soon be a Muslim continent”. End of quote. Indeed, for once in his life, Gaddafi was telling the truth. Because, remember: mass immigration and demographics is destiny!

Islam is merely not a religion, it is mainly a totalitarian ideology. Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave. Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society. >From civic- and family law to criminal law. It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet. Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

I believe that Islam is not compatible with our Western way of life. Islam is a threat to Western values. The equality of men and women, the equality of homosexuals and heterosexuals, the separation of church and state, freedom of speech, they are all under pressure because of islamization. Ladies and gentlemen: Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible. It are opposite values.

No wonder that Winston Churchill called Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ “the new Quran of faith and war, turgid, verbose, shapeless, bur pregnant with its message”. As you know, Churchill made this comparison, between the Koran and Mein Kampf, in his book ‘The Second World War’, a master piece, for which, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. Churchill’s comparison of the Quran and ‘Mein Kampf’ is absolutely spot on. The core of the Quran is the call to jihad. Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle. Kampf is German for battle. Jihad and kampf mean exactly the same.

Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal. That’s a given. The question is whether we in Europe and you in Britain, with your glorious past, will submit or stand firm for your heritage.

We see Islam taking off in the West at an incredible pace. Europe is Islamizing rapidly. A lot of European cities have enormous Islamic concentrations. Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and Berlin are just a few examples. In some parts of these cities, Islamic regulations are already being enforced. Women’s rights are being destroyed. Burqa’s, headscarves, polygamy, female genital mutilation, honour-killings. Women have to go to separate swimming-classes, don’t get a handshake. In many European cities there is already apartheid. Jews, in an increasing number, are leaving Europe.

As you undoubtedly all know, better then I do, also in your country the mass immigration and islamization has rapidly increased. This has put an enormous pressure on your British society. Look what is happening in for example Birmingham, Leeds, Bradford and here in London. British politicians who have forgotten about Winston Churchill have now taken the path of least resistance. They have given up. They have given in.

Last year, my party has requested the Dutch government to make a cost-benefit analysis of the mass immigration. But the government refused to give us an answer. Why? Because it is afraid of the truth. The signs are not good. A Dutch weekly magazine - Elsevier - calculated costs to exceed 200 billion Euros. Last year alone, they came with an amount of 13 billion Euros. More calculations have been made in Europe: According to the Danish national bank, every Danish immigrant from an Islamic country is costing the Danish state more than 300 thousand Euros. You see the same in Norway and France. The conclusion that can be drawn from this: Europe is getting more impoverished by the day. More impoverished thanks to mass immigration. More impoverished thanks to demographics. And the leftists are thrilled.

I don’t know whether it is true, but in several British newspapers I read that Labour opened the door to mass immigration in a deliberate policy to change the social structures of the UK. Andrew Neather, a former government advisor and speech writer for Tony Blair and Jack Straw, said the aim of Labour’s immigration strategy was, and I quote, to “rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date”. If this is true, this is symptomatic of the Left.

Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: The left is facilitating islamization. Leftists, liberals, are cheering for every new shariah bank being created, for every new shariah mortgage, for every new islamic school, for every new shariah court. Leftists consider Islam as being equal to our own culture. Shariah law or democracy? Islam or freedom? It doesn’t really matter to them. But it does matter to us. The entire leftist elite is guilty of practising cultural relativism. Universities, churches, trade unions, the media, politicians. They are all betraying our hard-won liberties.

Why I ask myself, why have the Leftists and liberals stopped to fight for them? Once the Leftists stood on the barricades for women’s rights. But where are they today? Where are they in 2010? They are looking the other way. Because they are addicted to cultural relativism and dependent on the Muslim vote. They are dependent on mass-immigration.

Thank heavens Jacqui Smith isn’t in office anymore. It was a victory for free speech that a UK judge brushed aside her decision to refuse me entry to your country last year. I hope that the judges in my home country are at least as wise and will acquit me of all charges, later this year in the Netherlands.

Unfortunately, so far they have not done so well. For they do not want to hear the truth about Islam, nor are they interested to hear the opinion of top class legal experts in the field of freedom of expression. Last month in a preliminary session the Court refused fifteen of the eighteen expert-witnesses I had requested to be summoned.

Only three expert witnesses are allowed to be heard. Fortunately, my dear friend and heroic American psychiatrist dr. Wafa Sultan is one of them. But their testimony will be heard behind closed doors. Apparently the truth about Islam must not be told in public, the truth about Islam must remain secret.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m being prosecuted for my political beliefs. We know political prosecution to exist in countries in the Middle East, like Iran and Saudi-Arabia, but never in Europe, never in the Netherlands.

I’m being prosecuted for comparing the Quran to ‘Mein Kampf’. Ridiculous. I wonder if Britain will ever put the beliefs of Winston Churchill on trial… Ladies and gentlemen, the political trial that is held against me has to stop.

But it is not all about me, not about Geert Wilders. Free speech is under attack. Let me give you a few other examples. As you perhaps know, one of my heroes, the Italian author Oriana Fallaci had to live in fear of extradition to Switzerland because of her anti-Islam book ‘The Rage and the Pride’. The Dutch cartoonist Nekschot was arrested in his home in Amsterdam by 10 police men because of his anti-Islam drawings. Here in Britain, the American author Rachel Ehrenfeld was sued by a Saudi businessman for defamation. In the Netherlands Ayaan Hirsi Ali and in Australia two Christian pastors were sued. I could go on and on. Ladies and gentlemen, all throughout the West freedom loving people are facing this ongoing ‘legal jihad’. This is Islamic ‘lawfare’. And, ladies and gentlemen, not long ago the Danish cartoonist Westergaard was almost assassinated for his cartoons.

Ladies and gentlemen, we should defend the right to freedom of speech. With all our strength. With all our might. Free speech is the most important of our many liberties. Free speech is the cornerstone of our modern societies. Freedom of speech is the breath of our democracy, without freedom of speech our way of life our freedom will be gone.

I believe it is our obligation to preserve the inheritance of the brave young soldiers that stormed the beaches of Normandy. That liberated Europe from tyranny. These heroes cannot have died for nothing. It is our obligation to defend freedom of speech. As George Orwell said: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”.

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe in another policy, it is time for change. We must make haste. We can’t wait any longer. Time is running out. If I may quote one of my favourite American presidents: Ronald Reagan once said: “We need to act today, to preserve tomorrow”. That is why I propose the following measures, I only mention a few, in order to preserve our freedom:

First, we will have to defend freedom of speech. It is the most important of our liberties. In Europe and certainly in the Netherlands, we need something like the American First Amendment.

Second, we will have to end and get rid of cultural relativism. To the cultural relativists, the shariah socialists, I proudly say: Our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Don’t be affraid to say it. You are not a racist when you say that our own culture is better.

Third, we will have to stop mass immigration from Islamic countries. Because more Islam means less freedom.

Fourth, we will have to expel criminal immigrants and, following denaturalisation, we will have to expel criminals with a dual nationality. And there are many of them in my country.

Fifth, we will have to forbid the construction of new mosques. There is enough Islam in Europe. Especially since Christians in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia are mistreated, there should be a mosque building-stop in the West.

And last but not least, we will have to get rid of all those so-called leaders. I said it before: Fewer Chamberlains, more Churchills. Let’s elect real leaders.

Ladies and gentlemen. To the previous generation, that of my parents, the word ‘London’ is synonymous with hope and freedom. When my country was occupied by the national-socialists the BBC offered a daily glimpse of hope in my country, in the darkness of Nazi tyranny. Millions of my fellow country men listened to it, underground. The words ‘This is London’ were a symbol for a better world coming soon.

What will be broadcasted forty years from now? Will it still be “This is London”? Or will it be “This is Londonistan”? Will it bring us hope? Or will it signal the values of Mecca and Medina? Will Britain offer submission or perseverance? Freedom or slavery? The choice is yours. And in the Netherlands the choice is ours.

Ladies and gentlemen, we will never apologize for being free. We will and should never give in. And, indeed, as one of your former leaders said: We will never surrender.

Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail.

Thank you very much.

2. Geert Wilders interviewed in London about his Banning the Koran: isn't it against Freedom of Speech?
 
Far right Dutch politician Geert Wilders has screened his anti-Islamic film to Britain's most senior lawmakers. The movie compares The Koran to Hitler's autobiography 'Mein Kampf', sparking widespread outrage. RT's Laura Emmett caught up with him, to find out why he thinks his calls to ban the Koran correspond with the ideology of free speech.

3. Geert Wilders Slams Socialist Islamic Alliance

Geertwilders.nl 5 March 2010
By Atlasshrugs.com

 

Here in a nutshell, and something we have to yet to see our way clear of here in the States, is Wilders's essential point: that if you want to live in the Netherlands, then accept its laws, culture and people, its way of life.

If not, don't come. And if you are there, don't stay. If you accept, then you will be welcomed. Why is this controversial? It is common sense.

The leftist dhimmi effetes are trying to keep Wilders off the ballot in the early elections called as a result of the collapsed Dutch government (due to the reluctance of the left to fight jihad in Afghanistan.). If they pull that fascist crap, I hope the villagers take to the streets with pitchforks and torches.

Speech by Geert Wilders at the PVV evening in Almere (hat tip Mike via Fausty)

Dear People,

First, a general notice. If people from the PvdA (Socialists) are present tonight: here is a message for you. At the end of the speech, I will hand out the speech in Arabic so that you can understand what I have said.[1]

For a long time the PvdA has not spoken the language of the common man or woman. The party of Wouter Bos speaks Arabic. By now you will certainly have read about the PvdA election pamphlet being distributed in Arabic. But do you also know what it says? Have you been able to read it? Probably not. Well, I have tried to translate it for you, and is says something like: "Me Jeltje van Nieuwenhoven, you get nice benefits, you like-um, we Hollandie pay everything nice.”

In other words: bring over your whole family, because money grows on trees here. The PvdA takes good care of its voting-cattle.

Ladies and gentlemen, how great it is to be here in Almere [map], how great it is to be in the new land [land reclaimed (map) in the 1950s-60s]. This evening, of course, it is about the elections next Wednesday in the city of Almere. I will say a few things about that later on — also about the superb work of our party leader Raymond de Roon and his fantastic team in this beautiful city. But I also want to share a few other things with you. Maybe you have heard that the Cabinet fell recently.

There was a Cabinet of monseigneur Balkenende [CDA, Christian Democrat] and monseigneur Bos [PvdA, Socialist]. Its motto was "live together, work together”. But even that did not work, for they could not work very well together. Thus it became "fighting together”. And after three years, the motto became "calling a new election together”. It appeared that this was not a government of co-operation, but a cabinet of runaways. Just when the economic problems in our country were at their worst, they took to their heels.

I do not know how you see it, but a government that indeed does not govern may leave right away. Balkenende-Bos has achieved nothing good past three years. Even their own primary task — making sure you must continue working until you are 67 — is still uncompleted. I was not sorry about the fall of the Cabinet. Even better: it was the best news of the year. My first reaction was: hoist tfhe flags! This was the cabinet of higher taxes and higher bankers’ bonuses, a higher age for state pensions and higher crime in the Netherlands. What this government especially excelled in was the increase of mass immigration, supporting the Islamization of our country and eroding the Dutch character of the Netherlands. In short, everything we already did not lack.

This government was not going to rest until on every street corner in the Netherlands there was a minaret and across the road a distribution office for social services. And I must admit they did their best. Balkenende-Bos has kept its promises. Never before has the influx of immigrants been so large, and never before have so many immigrants been admitted. This government was breaking record after record. If mass immigration had been an Olympic sport, Balkenende would have been more successful than Sven Kramer, Mark Tuitert, and Ireen Wust put together.

Now we will have elections. The other parties are all warming up. You might think: to take on the problems of the Netherlands. But, well, no: all they want to take on is the Party for Freedom. State Secretary Timmermans of the PvdA has blatantly called for all parties to agree on the exclusion of the PVV. So a common front against us. A cordon sanitaire.

And see here, that is how we recognize the PvdA once again. The PvdA still thinks it is a large party that runs the Netherlands. An arrogant club, all full of themselves. They enter the elections with the slogan: "everyone counts”. But they are happy to make an exception for the electorate of the PVV. Those people do not count. You are irrelevant. I think there is only one remedy for Mr. Timmermans. And that is a resounding election result for the PVV. First on March 3 [municipal elections] and then on June 9 for Parliament. Together we will take the PvdA down a peg or two.

This would teach Wouter Bos a good lesson. He constantly keeps proclaiming that "Islam belongs in the Netherlands”. When we do well in the elections, when we win the elections, he might well one day be proclaiming "the PVV belongs in the Netherlands”.

The Socialist Party [SP] is also in a big mess. Poor Agnes [Agnes Kant, fraction leader SP]. She wants so much, but is allowed so little by her chairman Jan [Marijnissen, co-founder and former fraction leader]. Every day they have a meal together, and then Agnes writes down in her notebook what Jan instructs her to do this time. And then that is what she does.

But last Tuesday it went all wrong. Little Agnes said something without Daddy Jan putting a spin on it. Agnes Kant said: "No, not excluding the PVV”, and a little later Jan on the radio said just the opposite. He would "never” get along with us. And once again that makes clear how it works in the SP. Jan Marijnissen is the boss, and Agnes Kant may only do the dishes.

The Party for Freedom has a breakpoint for negotiations for a Cabinet. We say: it is good to talk with us. We are here for the Netherlands, we are here for the people, therefore we will be pleased to take on our responsibility as a coalition party. The PVV is ready for that. But to form a coalition with the PVV, you can be assured of one thing: the threshold age for the AOW will remain at 65 years. The legacy of Willem Drees [PM who in the 1950s installed the AOW (then tax-neutral) and canceled his PvdA membership early in the 1970s due to irresponsible left-wing policies] is in good hands with the Party for Freedom!

People, you know the PVV to be a caring party[2]. We see that the backbone of the Netherlands is formed by the teacher, the nurse, and the policeman. All people who ensure that the Netherlands will be able to keep going. People who are entitled to a decent old age. People who are entitled to an AOW when they are 65.

Then to Almere, to this beautiful city. Dear people, there is something in the air. Take a deep breath. You can smell it. It is the smell of victory!

Here in Almere, the Freedom Party puts forward one of its heaviest guns. Our justice spokesman in Parliament: Raymond de Roon.

Raymond is one of the gifts we received in 2006. One day someone from high at the top of the Public Ministry knocked at the door. Someone who every day could see around him what was happening on the street. Someone who held office in the heart of Amsterdam and knew like no one else how the city suffered from crime. After the elections, Raymond emerged to become the crime fighter in Parliament. He pleaded for longer sentences, for minimum sentences, for a tough approach to offenders, and less coziness and comfort in the prisons.

Raymond de Roon and his team have set the stakes high. They say: Almere must become the safest city in the Netherlands. The choices the PVV makes here in Almere are therefore crystal-clear. More police on the streets and additional security through new urban commandos, lower subsidies and fewer civil servants in the town hall, and the use of those salaries for more security, a tougher approach to criminal scum, mostly Moroccan and Antillean street terrorists; force the pig-headed nuisance to move to container houses outside the fringe of the city, outside the residential areas; more CCTV and more police out on the street. The police must get away from their the desks and computers and hop out onto the street.

This is a very different story from the PvdA. Look here [in Almere] at what this PvdA-VVD municipal government wants to spend your money on. All weird multicultural subsidies. Turkish needle-work, Moroccan hopscotch, Anatolian netball, Arabian finger-painting — out of sheer silliness they don’t know what to spend your money on. Almere, for instance has its own "Day of Dialogue”, I did not know what I heard here. For thousands of years, people, if willing to, just started a conversation. For example while having a cup of coffee together. But in the city of Annemarie Jorritsma [Mayor of Almere] that is done in an entirely different way. There the subsidy tap is opened, and people are going to have a talk together under supervision of the municipality.

For the PvdA, that is the essence of their policies. As long as they can serve their voting-cattle. As long as they can give away gifts to people who still vote left-wing.

In recent months, Raymond de Roon has been meeting with quite a lot of people in this city. And those citizens over and over told our candidates: provide lower taxes for us; bring down those burdens! What they earn themselves, they also want to keep themselves. And thus the PVV is also setting to work on that right here in Almere: lowering the property tax, cutting the parking fees in half, and throwing out the sewage and waste disposal tax.

The Party for Freedom has been pursuing a marvelous campaign in recent weeks. Raymond and his team, for instance, paid a visit last week to the C1000 supermarket in Almere Harbor, which was recently raided, and some staff even had a gun put to their heads. No wonder some of the victims still are deeply impressed long afterwards. A great idea to pay them a visit. It is good that representatives inform themselves of what lack of safety means to ordinary people. Look, that is true PVV policy. Not counting policy reports, but helping citizens.

I have been told that Mayor Jorritsma here goes by the nickname "Mrs. Incident”. Any violent crime, every raid, she waves away as being an "incident”. But it is time we again look to the victims of violence and nuisance and focus on them. Raymond and his team do that, and therefore the PVV in this beautiful city will look forward to a wonderful future.

And I still have other good news for you. I heard from our party leaders in Almere and the Hague [the other city where the PVV joins the municipal elections], Raymond de Roon and Sietse Fritsma, what the main effort will be for the [coalition] negotiations in Almere and the Hague after March 3 [the municipal elections]: That will be a ban on headscarves in municipal bodies and all other institutions, foundations, or associations, if they receive even one penny of subsidy from the municipality. Thus an immediate ban on headscarves, get rid of that woman-humiliating Islamic symbol. And for all clarity: this is not however meant for crosses or yarmulkes, because those are symbols of religions that belong to our own culture and are not — as is the case with headscarves — a sign of an oppressive totalitarian ideology.

Dear people, we here in Almere will go against the flow for a great result on Wednesday. I am convinced that not only in the Netherlands, but also in Europe, many will be watching the PVV. You can make the difference. You can let this be known to the entire Netherlands on Wednesday: Almere chooses the PVV. Almere chooses for the future.

And you then will also do something else. With a resounding victory, you will lay the basis for the success of the PVV in the general election — when on June 9 hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of people throughout the Netherlands will vote for the Party for Freedom.

Together we will make sure that a new voice will be heard in the Hague and Almere and in the rest of the country: Out with the political elite: it is time for the PVV!

Thank you very much!

just to keep things in one place here is another item for GW's time in London:

Geert Wilders
5 March 2010, House of Lords, London UK, Press Conference

Thank you ladies and gentlemen. It is a pleasure to be here again in the United Kingdom. Thank you first to Baroness Cox and Lord Pearson for inviting me again to come here to London again. As you know and as Baroness Cox has rightfully said I was sent back last February when I tried to come on the invitation from both my colleagues from the House of Lords to show Fitna and have the discussion. Fortunately, a UK judge overruled that decision and now I am free to come again to the House of Lords where we have just shown Fitna. I had a debate with people who disagreed with me and with people who agreed with me.

I think that indeed this is a victory – not so much for me – I am not that important – but a victory for freedom of speech that even if you don’t ascribe to my views, that I am able to come here and speak my mind. Like George Orwell once said that the right of freedom is especially to listen to someone who says something that you do not want to hear.

So I spoke about the way I look at Islam, the way I look at the Islamisation of our societies. I said in the debate and also in my speech in the House of Lords that I cannot emphasise enough that I have nothing against Muslims, I have nothing against any people whatsoever, but I have a problem with the Islamic ideology, which I believe to be a totalitarian ideology; to be compared with other totalitarian ideologies like communism and fascism and is a threat to our free societies.

Fortunately, as you perhaps might have read, our Party had an enormous success in the Dutch local elections two days ago where we took part in [elections in] only two cities and in one city we became the biggest party and in the other city we were number two, with just a few percentage points behind number one. And in some of the polls from the Netherlands from last Wednesday, national polls, we became either [number two or] the biggest Party of the Netherlands. We have national elections 9 June and I am very confident that my Party, the Party of Freedom, has a good chance to become not only one of the biggest but maybe the biggest Party. I might even become (but that is for later) the next Prime Minister of the Netherlands.

And if I would be [become Prime Minister] then one of the major points of my political agenda would be to stop the immigration from Islamic countries, to be more proud of our own identity and our own culture which I believe is not based on Islam but is based on Christianity, Judaism and Humanism.

[I will also] Fight more for freedom of speech and introduce some kind of First Amendment in the Netherlands as they have in the United States today and fight with my agenda which is an agenda of hope and optimism for more freedom, more freedom of speech, smaller government, lower taxes, and also a social policy by spending more money on the Elderly and other things.

I am very happy to be here amongst my friends. Being able [to speak here] is, once again, a victory for freedom of speech and to show Fitna, a movie that unfortunately is so much criticised. I am threatened to be prosecuted in Jordan, I am not allowed to enter Indonesia, I am facing criminal charges in the Netherlands, others have sued me or tried to sue me in the civil courts in the Netherlands but today, in the mother of all Parliaments, As Malcolm [Lord Pearson] has always rightly said, in the House of Lords; I showed Fitna, I had a speech and I had a debate and was so glad for my friends to invite me and to be able to do so.

I [am] open now to any questions you may have.

"A specter is haunting Europe – the specter of Communism," Karl Marx once famously wrote. It took Europe almost a century to liberate itself from this scourge. Today, another specter is haunting not just Europe, but the entire world – the specter of Islam.

The biggest danger confronting the West today is not the economic situation, nor is it youth unemployment, nor the dire budget situation of our governments; the biggest danger is one of which we are reminded on an almost daily basis. And, yet, many politicians seem to fail to notice.

Click here to read the full article on Jihadwatch.org

On the last day of September, 50 students of an agricultural college in Nigeria were gunned down in their dormitories by terrorists from the Islamic organization Boko Haram. Earlier in September, terrorists from the Islamic organization al-Shabaab killed at least 67 civilians, and probably many more, in a shopping mall in Nairobi. They separated Muslims from non-Muslims, allowed the Muslims to leave and then tortured, mutilated and killed the non-Muslims. Even children were murdered in the most vicious and cruel way.

In Egypt, every week dozens of Christians are being harassed, kidnapped and assassinated by Islamic thugs from the Muslim Brotherhood. In Syria, Islamic rebels terrorize and murder Christians. In Lebanon and in Iraq, too, indigenous Christian communities whose ties to their native lands are many centuries older than those of the Muslim communities, are victims of ethnic cleansing.

Even in the West, we are not immune to Islamic terror. Europe experienced this last May, when two assassins with meat-cleavers decapitated a soldier in London. America experienced it last April, when Islamic murderers ignited pressure cooker bombs during the Boston Marathon and killed 3 people and injured hundreds.

Like the specter of Communism in the past, the danger of Islam is political. Islam is mainly a political ideology because its aim is political. What the London and Boston killers, Boko Haram, al-Shabaab, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda and other individuals and groups, causing pain and misery all over the globe, have in common is that, inspired by the Koran, they want to impose Islamic sharia law on the whole world.

They share this goal with an organization that is being held in the highest esteem by Western governments: the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC counts 57 member-states and forms the largest voting bloc in the United Nations. In 1990, it superseded the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights with its own Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam. The Cairo Declaration is a document of unabashed Islamic supremacism. It explicitly states that all human rights and freedoms “are subject to the Islamic Sharia.”

Islamic law is barbaric and cruel. Flogging, mutilation and other corporal punishments, stoning and even crucifixion are permitted penalties under sharia law. It discriminates women, apostates and non-Muslims, who have fewer rights or no rights at all. In 2003, the European Court of Human Rights declared that “sharia is incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy.” And yet, few Western leaders seem to worry about the attempts to replace our basic liberties with sharia law.

Last July, German Chancellor Merkel called youth unemployment “perhaps the most pressing problem facing Europe.” A few years ago, President Obama called “cyber threat one of the most serious security challenges we face as a nation.” Today, the partial federal shutdown is claiming all the attention of America’s politicians. In Europe, the crisis surrounding the euro and the sovereign debts of the EU member states, is causing its politicians the biggest headaches. But neither of these serious problems endangers the liberties and values of Western civilization so fundamentally as the political aim of Islam to impose its laws on the entire world. And yet, not a single Western leader has dared to say that Islam is “the most pressing problem” or “the most serious security challenge” that the free world currently faces.

On the contrary, whenever confronted with horrible atrocities, Western leaders downplay the role of Islam. They claim, as British Prime Minister Cameron did after last May’s London killing, that “there is nothing in Islam that justifies these dreadful acts.” However, the justification of the dreadful acts is in the Koran. Verse 8:12 leaves no the followers of Islam in no doubt about what to do with infidels: “Strike off their heads, maim them in every limb!” it says. Muhammad’s book is full of similar verses that incite its Islamic readers to commit hostile and violent acts against non-Muslims.

Winston Churchill once said that “The people of Asia were slaves, because they had not learned how to pronounce the word ‘no’.” Today, the West must learn to say ‘no’ or it, too, will be enslaved. A specter is haunting the free world. Let us have the courage to call its by its name: It is the radical ideology of Islam with its political aim to abolish our freedoms and our democracy. It is by far the most serious evil afflicting the world today. And it is a much bigger threat to our civilization than all the other problems our politicians currently worry about and devote so much attention to.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
