Dutch politician and leader of the Party for Freedom, Geert Wilders, gave a speech in New York, September 25, 2008, titled “America, The Last Man Standing”:
“The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization facing an Islamic Europe.
Europe is changing by Muslim mass-migration … with mosques on many street corners controlled by religious fanatics. Muslim neighborhoods are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden …”
“In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In a once-tolerant Amsterdam, gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims.
Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’ . In France, school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.”
Geert Wilders stated further:
“In England, sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe … 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. The numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate, but half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. One-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar al-Islam …”
“Much of this street violence is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
Mohammed’s behavior is an example to all Muslims. If Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered, and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.
Islam means ‘submission.’ Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.”
Geert Wilders concluded:
“There is a danger greater than terrorist attacks….the scenario of America as the last man standing. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens, and Jerusalem .”
