Geert Wilders receives death threats over film about the Qur'An

"Dutch member of parliament Geert Wilders is working on a provocative tv movie on the Qur'an. It is Mr Wilders' next step in his fight in what he sees as highly dangerous islam. He recently pleaded for a ban of the Qur'an, which he calls fascist. Wilders compared the Holy Book of Islam to Hitler's Mein Kampf. The politician says his film shows similarities with Submission, a film made in 2004 by Theo van Gogh and Ayaan Hirsi Ali."

Geert Wilders has received as many as 40 death threats in a single day and is now under 24 hours/day security.

"December 21, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Dutch MP and leader of Holland's "Party for Freedom," Geert Wilders, is being denied his right to freedom of expression by a coalition of Islamists and leftists who wish to stop the production of his upcoming film, which takes a critical look at Islam. Mr. Wilders has been the object of death threats for years made by extremist Muslims - he sometimes receives as many as 40 in a single day. As a result, he must have 24 hour security and is being forced to live under near house arrest in his own country.

The threats on Mr. Wilders' life must be taken seriously, they are real and ongoing. The inciteful actions of his opponents - including those who have now started an anti-Wilders ["Stop the de Verwildering"] movement, outrageously labeling him as "evil," - are putting his life in even further jeopardy.

In November 2004 Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh was assassinated while on his way to work by Mohammed Bouyeri, the son of a Moroccan Muslim immigrant family. During his trial Bouyeri claimed that he brutally murdered van Gogh, shooting and then nearly decapitating him with a butcher knife because he thought van Gogh's film, "Submission," slandered Islam. Bouyeri stated that the penalty for such an offense must be death."

Wilders film, which will be about 10 minutes long will analyse particular parts of the Qur'An, which he claims are encouraging the radicalisation of young Muslim men and encouraging terrorist activity. If no TV company in the Netherlands will show the film, it will be available on Wilders' party's web site and on YouTube.

"Wilders hopes the film will demonstrate that the Koran, the holy book revered by Muslims, is a "terrible and fascist" book that continues to inspire people to commit atrocious acts. The cabinet voiced its concerns last November about possible repercussions that the film could have in the Netherlands and abroad."

In response to the proposed film by Wilders, the Muslim ex-Ambassador to the Netherlands, Noor Farida Ariffin said this week, "The ‘Film of Geert Wilders will unavoidably cause extreme violence' and 'if the film is shown the Dutch can expect numbers of dead Dutch people'. 'The uproar about the Danish cartoons will be nothing in comparison"

Dutch Labour Party politician, Bouchra Ismaili, is quoted in Pipeline as saying that the native Dutch people are the foreigners in the Netheralnds!

"
January 16, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The European press is reporting an incident in which Moroccan born Dutch councilwoman Bouchra Ismaili responded to an email query by a native born citizen, suggesting that he, "drop dead convert to Islam...you are the foreigners here."

The email sender Jos Parbleu, told Holland's Algemeen Dagblad newspaper that he was "shocked," adding that "this is a sign of what a disastrous situation has hit the country."

Ismaili said she wrote the comments "in a surge of anger" after hearing someone yell anti-Moroccan comments during the day."

On an internet forum, a Dutch woman wrote this,

"In an unbelievable tirade of hatred in response to an e-mail she received from a Dutch person who wrote nothing more literally than quoting what two fundi muslims had said: 'YOU DUTCH DESERVE A HUGE BOMB ATTACK'.
Therefore keep your eyes on The Netherlands around the 28th of January when Geert Wilders' film/video will be shown wherein 'The Big Bad Wolf 'Allah' of the Quran and the horrific effects he and 'his messengerboy Muhammed' have - worldwide.

And please come and help us should the need arise to defeat the Islam hordes - and hit them back home to wherever they came from."

Watch out for Wilders' film. Remember, if Dutch TV will not handle it because of threats of Dutch people dying as a consequence, the film will be available on Wilders' Freedom Party's web site and on YouTube.

What kind of religion is so sensitive to criticism that people are threatened and people are killed for taking a critical look at it? Surely in the 21st Century, people of faith could be responding with, "My faith is not shaken by your criticism." Not Islam, though. A few cartoons and its loyal followers are out on the streets, burning flags and torching buildings. The religion of peace?

The trouble with Moslems is that they ignore what the world is seeing and saying and keep repeating that Islam is a religion of peace. That assertion is questionable even on the basis of verses in Koran which relate to the duty of all Moslems to kill those who wish to leave Islam. Are cruel punishments like stoning to death, cutting off the limbs or making a wall fall on the accused signs of a peaceful religion? In India, there is not a single Hindu or Buddhist pre-Islamic rule monument standing intact. Every image, which was dear to the followers of these ancient religions, has been deliberately disfigured. Is it a sign of religion of peace? Thousands of temples have been destroyed in Bangladesh after India helped it attain independence in 1971 as graphically described by Taslima Nasreen. She could not stay in India because of pressure built by Indian Moslems. The huge Buddhist images were destroyed in Afghanistan while the world watched in horror and Moslems celebrated in the streets. Is this a religion of peace?
All countries dominated by any other faith allow Moslems to live and practice their religion. Try to enter Saudi Arabia with a religious book or icon of any other religion. It shall be destroyed before your eyes. Moslems flee oppression and poverty in Islamic countries and then demand Islamic rule in secular countries which give them shelter. Today, Turkish Prime Minister has told German Moslems not to integrate with German society.
Hatred and scorn for other faiths is scattered throughout Koran. Let any Moslem stand and say that he gives the same respect for other faiths that he expects for his faith from others. They retain the right to convert others to their faith, by coercion, if necessary, as was done in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and earlier in Iran and Afghanistan. Yet, they threaten Moslems with death if they wish to exercise the freedom of choosing another faith.
Islam is retrograde. The world evolves but this cult wants to stick to the words of an ancient time which is anachronistic today. The Koran says that it is a crime not to be a Moslem and their leaders like Anjam Chaudhary echo that stupid sentiment on TV. Then they want the world to believe that Islam is a religion of peace.
Moslems should wake up and realise that if others have not resorted to violence with equal fervour against their Jihad, it is not because people of other faiths are cowards. It is because other faiths do not exhort with such fervour a resort to violence. Moslems should not wait for the day when the pitcher of patience of the rest of the faiths overflows. Then it will be too late for Moslems. They should know that religions can be wiped out. Moslems themselves had done this to the great Zoroastrians in Persia.

BHUMI,

Thank you very much for your interesting comments. I totally agree with everything you say and I note with some satisfaction that Abu Izadeen (sp?) has been found guilty this week on terrorism charges. That should wipe the stupid smirk off his face!
