The speech Geert Wilders was not allowed to make

vrijdag 13 februari 2009
London, Feb. 12, 2009

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much.

Thank you for inviting me. Thank you Lord Pearson and Lady Cox for showing Fitna, and for your gracious invitation. While others look away, you, seem to understand the true tradition of your country, and a flag that still stands for freedom.

This is no ordinary place. This is not just one of England’s tourist attractions. This is a sacred place. This is the mother of all Parliaments, and I am deeply humbled to speak before you.


The Houses of Parliament is where Winston Churchill stood firm, and warned – all throughout the 1930’s – for the dangers looming. Most of the time he stood alone.

In 1982 President Reagan came to the House of Commons, where he did a speech very few people liked. Reagan called upon the West to reject communism and defend freedom. He introduced a phrase: ‘evil empire’. Reagan’s speech stands out as a clarion call to preserve our liberties. I quote: If history teaches anything, it teaches self-delusion in the face of unpleasant facts is folly.

What Reagan meant is that you cannot run away from history, you cannot escape the dangers of ideologies that are out to destroy you. Denial is no option.

Communism was indeed left on the ash heap of history, just as Reagan predicted in his speech in the House of Commons. He lived to see the Berlin Wall coming down, just as Churchill witnessed the implosion of national-socialism.

Today, I come before you to warn of another great threat. It is called Islam. It poses as a religion, but its goals are very worldly: world domination, holy war, sharia law, the end of the separation of church and state, the end of democracy. It is not a religion, it is a political ideology. It demands your respect, but has no respect for you.

There might be moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam. Islam will never change, because it is build on two rocks that are forever, two fundamental beliefs that will never change, and will never go away. First, there is Quran, Allah’s personal word, uncreated, forever, with orders that need to be fulfilled regardless of place or time. And second, there is al-insal al-kamil, the perfect man, Muhammad the role model, whose deeds are to be imitated by all Muslims. And since Muhammad was a warlord and a conqueror we know what to expect.

Islam means submission, so there cannot be any mistake about it’s goal. That’s a given. The question is whether the British people, with its glorious past, is longing for that submission.

We see Islam taking off in the West at an incredible speed. The United Kingdom has seen a rapid growth of the number of Muslims. Over the last ten years, the Muslim population has grown ten times as fast as the rest of society. This has put an enormous pressure on society. Thanks to British politicians who have forgotten about Winston Churchill, the English now have taken the path of least resistance. They give up. They give in.

Thank you very much for letting me into the country. I received a letter from the Secretary of State for the Home Department, kindly disinviting me. I would threaten community relations, and therefore public security in the UK, the letter stated.
For a moment I feared that I would be refused entrance. But I was confident the British government would never sacrifice free speech because of fear of Islam. Britannia rules the waves, and Islam will never rule Britain, so I was confident the Border Agency would let me through. And after all, you have invited stranger creatures than me. Two years ago the House of Commons welcomed Mahmoud Suliman Ahmed Abu Rideh, linked to Al Qaeda. He was invited to Westminster by Lord Ahmed, who met him at Regent’s Park mosque three weeks before. Mr. Rideh, suspected of being a money man for terror groups, was given a SECURITY sticker for his Parliamentary visit.

Well, if you let in this man, than an elected politician from a fellow EU country surely is welcome here too. By letting me speak today you show that Mr Churchill’s spirit is still very much alive. And you prove that the European Union truly is working; the free movement of persons is still one of the pillars of the European project.

But there is still much work to be done. Britain seems to have become a country ruled by fear. A country where civil servants cancel Christmas celebrations to please Muslims. A country where Sharia Courts are part of the legal system. A country where Islamic organizations asked to stop the commemoration of the Holocaust. A country where a primary school cancels a Christmas nativity play because it interfered with an Islamic festival. A country where a school removes the words Christmas and Easter from their calendar so as not to offend Muslims. A country where a teacher punishes two students for refusing to pray to Allah as part of their religious education class. A country where elected members of a town council are told not to eat during daylight hours in town hall meetings during the Ramadan. A country that excels in its hatred of Israel, still the only democracy in the Middle-East. A country whose capitol is becoming ‘Londonistan’.

I would not qualify myself as a free man. Four and a half years ago I lost my freedom. I am under guard permanently, courtesy to those who prefer violence to debate. But for the leftist fan club of islam, that is not enough. They started a legal procedure against me. Three weeks ago the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ordered my criminal prosecution for making ‘Fitna’ and for my views on Islam. I committed what George Orwell called a ‘thought crime’.

You might have seen my name on Fitna’s credit role, but I am not really responsible for that movie. It was made for me. It was actually produced by Muslim extremists, the Quran and Islam itself. If Fitna is considered ‘hate speech’, then how would the Court qualify the Quran, with all it’s calls for violence, and hatred against women and Jews?
Mr. Churchill himself compared the Quran to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Well, I did exactly the same, and that is what they are prosecuting me for.

I wonder if the UK ever put Mr. Churchill on trial.

The Court’s decision and the letter I received form the Secretary of State for the Home Department are two major victories for all those who detest freedom of speech. They are doing Islam’s dirty work. Sharia by proxy. The differences between Saudi-Arabia and Jordan on one hand and Holland and Britain are blurring. Europe is now on the fast track of becoming Eurabia. That is apparently the price we have to pay for the project of mass immigration, and the multicultural project.

Ladies and gentlemen, the dearest of our many freedoms is under attack. In Europe, freedom of speech is no longer a given. What we once considered a natural component of our existence is now something we again have to fight for. That is what is at stake. Whether or not I end up in jail is not the most pressing issue. The question is: Will free speech be put behind bars?

We have to defend freedom of speech.

For the generation 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 the darkness of Nazi tyranny. Millions of my country men listened to it, illegally. The words ‘This Is London’ were a symbol for a better world coming soon. If only the British and Canadian and American soldiers were here.

What will be transmitted 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 ours.

Ladies and gentlemen,

We will never apologize for being free. We will never give in. We will never surrender.

Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail.

Thank you very much.

You already have it.
Every blogger should give this pride of place.
My anger against our media yesterday was red hot.
So called independent radio slated Geert as a racist etc.
That's a sign of how many muslims live in London it was LBC Radio.
James Dhimmi Whale.
What an excellent speech it fills me with shame that the British Gov---British, not Iranian barred this man of Truth.

Their fear of the Truth is on show.

BROWN THE BIGGEST COWARD IN EUROPE
Geert hit the nail on the head.

Had your BNP Email?
Send it off ..mine has gone around this morning.

T Shirts with Geert on would get folk asking whose that.
Once asked it's a duty to tell the truth.

I'd happily put Churchill on trial, though not necessarily for passing comment on the Quran.

What man of sanity would say of the Japanese "we shall wipe them out, every last one, man woman and child, there shall not be a Japanese left on the face of the earth",?

What man of principal would order British troops to fight alongside Nazi divisions to crush the indigenous Greek resistance movement which had just overthrown German occupation?

What democrat would help fund and support the most expensive election campaign ever ($10billion in 1945 money) to prevent Fronti Popuilari winning the first Italian election after liberation from Mussolini - instead supporting the installation of one of Mussolini's right hand men?

What 'true British nationalist' would match Eisenhower's $10million to fund the coup against the democratically elected Iranian government to force British control of Iranian-Persian Oil (now known as BP), with the CIA installation of a strict Islamic government?

Why is this man still the nationalist's darling? A few speeches and a witty manner do not a war hero make. Show me the bullet wounds, show me the principals. Churchill was just another ruling-class boys-club politico with his own ideological agenda.

Celtic Morning. A speech that Winston Churchill himself would surely have been proud to make. What a shame that he was not allowed to make it in Westminster. My estimation of Mr. Wilders is now very high and we sorely need such patriots throughout Europe. We should be ashamed of our country in its present condition and I suspect that true patriots are. The only thing which keeps our spirits up, keeps us from the depths of despair is the conviction that, as Geert Wilders says, We will never give in. Never. Sanity must come to our country soon though, having just read about the fortune we have given to a family of Congolese "asylum seekers", I think that the day may still be a very long way off.

Speaks for itself!

An Open Letter to the Government of the UK
International Free Press Society February 12 2009

On Tuesday, February 10, 2009, Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, leader of the Partij voor de Vrijheid (Party for Freedom), received a letter written on behalf of British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.

It informed Mr. Wilders that on traveling to the UK at the invitation of UK Independence Party peer Lord Pearson to screen the film Fitna and hold a Q&A in the Parliament on Thursday, February 12, 2009, Mr. Wilders should expect to be barred from entry into the UK for the following stated reason:

“The Secretary of State is of the view that your presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society. The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere, would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.”

With this edict, the government of the UK has broken faith with its own glorious tradition of enshrining freedom of speech, and embarked on an authoritarian course of setting the boundaries of political debate. With this action, the government of the UK has also broken faith with its neighbors in the European Union by taking the unprecedented measure of barring entry to a democratically elected representative, and, in Mr. Wilders’ case, party leader from another EU member state. In so doing, the government of the UK has additionally given lie to the organizing EU principle of “open borders” among member states, demonstrating a capricious will to close its borders against ideas of which it disapproves.

The British Home Office has further stated that in barring Geert Wilders from the UK it is stopping “extremism, hatred and violent messages” from coming to its country. The British Home Office is wrong. These things are already there. With this crude rebuff of Mr. Wilders, the Netherlands, and freedom of speech, the British government has all but ensured that such extremism, hatred and violent messages will continue to flourish in British soil, taking root and taking over.

And there is something else. Ideas know no boundaries, at least in what we continue to think of as the Free World. Fitna, Wilders’ writings, news of his political progress in the Dutch parliament: All remain available inside the UK via the Internet and other media. This means that the Home Office’s stated reasons for barring Wilders–to prevent the spread of what it calls “extremism” into UK communities of presumed “harmony”–is not at all what this action is about. In declaring Wilders the man persona non grata, the British government has declared his ideas and his political program to be anathema. In another alarming sign of authoritarianism, the British government has also canceled by fiat the House of Lords’ right to hear these ideas and political program. It is impossible to gauge the chilling effect that this deplorable decision will have on free speech and debate in England but it is no exaggeration to say that it will be colossal. If this decision to bar from the UK an elected representative from the Netherlands is not rescinded, it will stand in history as a shameful marker of the UK’s descent into what tragically augurs an anti-liberal, anti-Western and authoritarian spiral.

Therefore, the International Free Press Society calls on the British government to rescind immediately the Home Secretary’s decision to bar Geert Wilders of the Netherlands entry into the UK.

Signed,

Lars Hedegaard, President

Diana West, Vice President

Paul Belien, Vice President

Christine Brim, Secretary

Bjorn Larsen, Treasurer

As FITNA shows, Islam is by its very nature violent and murderous. The commands to kill and rape unbelievers are in the Koran, which is the unchallengeable word of God.

You can't 'moderately' kill and rape people. Hence there can be no such person as a moderate Muslim.

Also, Mohammed is the perfect man , the model for all Muslims, who said "I have been made victorious with terror"

So any Muslim who claims to reject terrorism and violence is either lying to confuse the infidel (Taqiyya) , or rejecting the Koran and the example of the prophet. In the latter case he is an apostate, and liable to be killed by other Muslims.

Do not trust them with anything , nor believe a word they say.

The Muslims have got to leave Britain, no matter what it takes to persuade them to go.

It's a matter of survival - us or them.

As simple and as stark as that.

Thanks for posting this GA,the treatment of Wilders this week has made me be ashamed to be British. He is a man amongst men, a leader in a desperate time in western history when real leaders are scarce.

@Simple Simon:

Very appropriate moniker although simple elevates you to a lofty level you clearly demonstrate that you do not merit.

God bless Geert Wilders and God bless Sir Winston Churchill, courageous defenders of liberty.

Reconquista.

I second that.
Thank you Reconquista, I was feeling somewhat offended by the simpleton's remarks!
I will certainly be wanting a Geert Wilders T shirt.

The answer to the problems of free speech is always more free speech .

And the answer to the problems of inbred, stone-age, pedophile-worshipping savages taking offence is to cause them more offence.

Free speech - use it or lose it. Do something gratuitously offensive to Muslims every day.

Salford Supporter said...

This is an inspiring speech indeed. The press won't be publishing it, of course. The Guardian leader column was against the ban on Geert Wilder's being refused entry to the U.K - whilst villifying the man himself, but they'll not print it. nor will the Torygraph or The Express - they all want to appease and 'integrate'.

Simple Simon: I hope you can be relied upon to also point out that Churchill believed in racial supremacy ( which the BNP doesn't, I may add) the next time the anti-BNP mob go on about how the 'racist' BNP are an affront to those who, they absurdly claim, fought in the Second World War 'against racism'.
