The Dutch House of Representatives held a debate on freedom of speech at the request of Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders after the beheading of the French teacher Samuel Paty. Wilders slammed the open-borders policies of the Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, for “importing a monster called Islam into our country, which has put our country in danger.”
Geert Wilders, who is thought of as “The Donald Trump of The Netherlands,” opened the parliamentary debate with a summary of the Islamic attacks and threats in recent weeks. He also addressed the call by Amsterdam’s imam, Yassin Elforkani, who, just two weeks after the murder of Samuel Paty, began demanding the criminalization of insulting Mohammed. A petition was even launched by his fellow Imam, Ismail Abou Soumayyah, insisting the government adopt sharia blasphemy laws. The petition has currently been signed more than 125,000 times.
Once again, Wilders told the Dutch legislatures to enact his five-point plan to tackle what he deems the biggest danger to their society,
Islam is the poison of our society. We imported a sample. I’ve been warning about it for twenty years. How many more victims have to fall before the penny falls until we realize that this terrible Islam does not belong in the Netherlands?
Wilders’ plan asks the government to; “recognize that Islam is a violent ideology,” close the borders, “dismantle institutions of Islam,” lock up and deport all Muslims threatening violence – along with their sympathizers, and have schools and media “show Muhammad cartoons.”
The PVV leader sent a clear warning to sharia-adherent Muslims who refuse to assimilate into the Netherlands, leave he demanded – go to an Islamic country,
for all the Muslims in the Netherlands who do not respect our freedom, our democracy, and our core values, who find the rules of the Quran more important than our secular laws….get out! Leave for an Islamic country.This is our country. Not your country, but our country. This is the Netherlands.
Watch an except exclusively translated by RAIR Foundation USA of Geert Wilders addressing the Dutch House of Representatives:
Many thanks to C. for the translation:
Geert Wilders in the Dutch Legislature:
So it’s not just a few rotten apples that make the other Muslims look bad.
I say to the PM, stop pushing that nonsense fairy tale.
This is a large majority of 700,000 Muslims [out of 900,000] who reject our free society.
And you, mister PM, have imported a monster called Islam into our country, which has put our country in danger. Therefore I propose, for the 100,000th time to the cabinet, Madam Speaker:
1) recognize that Islam is a violent ideology, one that comes with hate and terror, and thus has no place in the Netherlands.
2) Close our borders immediately to asylum seekers and immigrants from Islamic countries. Reject [the open borders treaty] Schengen and re-introduce border checks.
3) Start dismantling institutions of Islam, such as mosques, and begin with all those mosques that receive foreign funding, and where for example, Diyanet, the Turkish ministry of religious affairs, makes the rules, instead of us.
4) Lock up everybody who threatens with violence, or uses violence, or deports them. And get those hundreds of members and those thousands of sympathizers of the jihadist movements in the Netherlands, and lock them up preemptively if necessary.
5), Speaker, ask all schools, newspapers, media to show a Muhammad cartoon.
Not to provoke, but to show that we never give in to threats and violence and that we proudly support our freedoms.
Speaker, to wrap up, I have a message for all the Muslims in the Netherlands who do not respect our freedom, our democracy, and our core values, who find the rules of the Quran more important than our secular laws.
There are many of those. Research by Prof. Koopmans shows there are 700,000.
And my message to them is: get out! Leave for an Islamic country.
Then you can enjoy Islamic rules. Those are their rules, but not ours.
This is our country. Not your country, but our country. This is the Netherlands.
