Geert Wilders About to Score Victory for Western Civ.

Geert Wilders Support

Geert Wilders went from a minor politician considered a fringe right wing racist by his own people to being the head of one of the most powerful Political Parties in Netherlands. The obvious interpretation is that Wilders’ campaign to expose Islam as a racist, brutal, murdering and supremacist theopolitical ideology is NOW resonating with the Dutch electorate.

Wilders’ became the victim of Islamic/Mohammedan apologists when he released his movie short entitled Fitna. The entitled movie is actually an Arabic word with a rough English meaning of strife, discord and contention. I have learned from the blog the Gates of Vienna (an elder statesman blog of exposing Islam) that fitna has a more nuanced meaning than the to the point English words. To get a firm grasp of what the word “fitna” means to Arab speaking people or at least as the word means in the Quran read, “Why ‘Fitna’?” In lieu of the detailed explanation of the word fitna I like this brief description:

“…in whatever particular context fitna may be perceived, it is almost always a context within the Muslim community, setting believer against believer.”

In other words, fitna means “the instigation of the kind of trouble that sets Muslims at one another’s throats”.

Wilders’ movie reaches beyond intra-Ummah strife to utilize the words of the Quran coupled to images of what Muslims (Of the Salafi, Wahhabi & Twelver Shia type) do to kafir (i.e. unbelievers in Islam like you and me). Dutch authorities received enough complaints that Wilders was promoting hate-speech and incitement to violence that he was charged forthwith. In January of 2009 a Dutch Appellate Court ordered criminal prosecution.

The trial did not start until 2010. In the mean time Wilders’ PVV (Party for Freedom) political party has gained huge support from Dutch voters both for EU representation and Netherlands representation.

I found out from a Christian Action Network email that the prosecutors have recommended all charges be dropped against Geert Wilders. I understand that the Dutch Judicial system is a little quirky compared to America’s Judicial system. Apparently the Dutch Judge may elect to disregard the prosecutors and proceed with a criminal trial persecuting Geert Wilders’ Free Speech to speak the truth. The legal analysts of Europe have indicated the Dutch Judge will not proceed with further action. If that turns out to be true then Geert Wilders’ current persecution is at an end.

Below is the email with a similar post from the Christian Action Network website.

Friends We Have Great News in Regards to the International Fight for Free Speech!

We have some great news for you this week! For those of you that have seen our film, Islam Rising: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West, you are aware that a popular member of the Netherlands’ parliament named Geert Wilders is being prosecuted for criticizing Islam, Mohammed and the Koran.
On Friday, October 15, the prosecutors stated that Wilders should be acquitted of all five charges against him for allegedly inciting hatred and discrimination. This is a very encouraging victory for free speech! However, the trial will still continue and the possibility remains that the judges could still indict him, though commentators seem to believe this is unlikely.

This is to be celebrated, but how many people will fear being brought up on charges as Wilders has? How many will censor themselves because they know they cannot afford the legal bills and tarnished reputation?

The Christian Action Network knows about this first hand. As you may know, the state of Maine revoked our charitable status in May 2009 after we sent out a letter warning our supporters about how some students in California were being forced to dress up as Muslims, chant “Praise Be to Allah,” and learn the five pillars of Islam. Imagine if such an education and practicing of Christianity had happened in a public school!

The state of Maine claimed that our letter contained “an inflammatory anti-Muslim message,” among other bogus accusations. As you can read here, we won that legal battle—but again, these two cases show how political correctness, lawsuits and even the threat of possible prosecution are being used against the foes of radical Islam. And that’s why our next announcement is so important.

Our film about Wilders, Islam Rising, is coming to a Christian bookstore near you! We have signed a deal with New Day Christian Distributors after they received numerous requests for the film. And we have YOU to thank for it!

Do you live in the New York City area? Don’t forget to register to come to the premiere of our new documentary, Sacrificed Survivors: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mosque!

Prosecution Says Wilders Not Guilty of Hate Crimes

October 18, 2010

Dutch News reports that Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders has been found not guilty on all charges of hate speech by the prosecutors.

Wilders was prosecuted for allegedly inciting hatred towards Muslims after releasing a documentary titled Fitna that tied acts of Islamic terrorism and oppression to verses in the Koran, the holy book of Islam. He has also harshly criticized Mohammed, the founder of Islam, and the religion as a whole.

The public prosecution department stated that his comparison of the Koran to Adolf Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf was “crude but that did not make it punishable.”

However, despite the prosecution’s stance, the trial will still continue and a small possibility still remains that the judges could convict Wilders.

“I’m very happy that the prosecutors came, for a second time, to the conclusion I didn’t commit any punishable offense… I don’t discriminate, I don’t sow hatred, I don’t defame groups, the only thing I do and will continue to do is tell the truth,” Wilders said after the prosecutors called for his acquittal, according to Business Week.

The popularity of Wilders and his Freedom Party in the Netherlands has quickly grown since the controversy erupted. In the national election in June, Wilders won 24 of the 150 seats in parliament, up from 9 previously. The results made Wilders’ party the third largest in the Netherlands.

The Christian Action Network has released a documentary about Wilders called Islam Rising: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West. The film tells his story and includes his own documentary, Fitna. It also includes a speech he delivered in the United States warning Americans about how radical Islam was spreading in Europe and the U.S.
