Last week, an anti-islamization conference was held in Florence, Italy with the theme “Islamophobia and Freedom of Speech”. Responsible for the organization was the “Associazione Una Via Per Oriana”, Oriana of course being the famous progressive Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci who died two years ago of cancer. In her heyday Mrs. Fallaci had decidely leftist inclinations but not unlike quite a few intellectual giants, at some point reality struck home. Mrs. Fallaci spent the last years of her life writing fierce critiques of the monstrous politico-religious ideology currently assaulting Europe, The Force of Reason and The Rage and the Pride. Indeed, as we speak and write, Hamas flags fly over the Rhine river at Mulhouse, France; more and more cities in The Netherlands experience a homegrown intifada - the latest hotspot is Gouda; and to top it all off, last week it transpired that Gordon Brown's Labour government has secretly sanctioned powers for sharia courts in the UK. It is against this terrifying backdrop that we must see last weeks' conference, where many leading authors of works warning of islam were present, like Bat Ye’or, David Littman and others.

Among the invitees at the Oriana Fallaci Commemmoration was Filip Dewinter, fraction leader for the Vlaams Belang in the Flemish Parliament. Following the event, Mr. Dewinter was honoured with the Prize bearing the name of the deceased journalist, which he received from the President of Una Via Per Oriana, Armando Manocchia. In his speech, Mr. Manocchia stressed that Mr. Dewinter was awarded the prize “because of the courage he has, rowing upstream against the flood wave of political correctness. With ‘Cities Against Islamisation’ Filip Dewinter has funded a democratic movement of resistance that will protect our European identity and Western civilisation against the Islamic religion of conquest”.


Dewinter gave a speech himself. A stellar one, if I may say so. Here are some key excerpts:

Ladies and gentlemen,

Don’t be mislead, there's no such thing as ‘moderate Islam’. I give you a recent quote from the Turkish premier Erdogan: “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” Let’s cut he crap, Islam is bound for world dominance. Islam is an imperialist religion who forces their rights with violence. It’s an historical evidence that Europe is the first and most important enemy of Islam. Almost fourteen centuries Europe is resisting the islamisation of its continent. The first Islamic invasion of Europe was halted at Poitiers in 732 a.D. The second Islamic invasion was stopped at the gates of Vienna in 1683.The matter is now to halt the currently ongoing third Islamic invasion, and to push Islam back to where it belongs: to the other side of the Mediterranean.

Radical islam is nowadays fighting with other means than before: The scimitar has been replaced by the terrorists’ bomb, but apart from that less has changed. The only fundamental change is that Europe no longer dares to resist Islamic aggression and we tend to behave more and more as dhimmi’s.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Islam does not belong in Europe, not yesterday, neither today, and certainly not
tomorrow. Islam is diametrically opposed to our European morals and values. Islam is but way much more than a religion, it is in fact a political ideology, a social order and a jurisdictional system. Islam is a political ideology, a social order and a jurisdictional system that has undergone hardly any change since Medieval times. To tolerate, acknowledge and fund islam in Europe, is to throw away all European acquirements and freedoms, and return to the darkest days of Middle Ages. There are many ways in which the ongoing islamisation of Europe reveals itself. Not only do we have to give in on fundamental principles of European society, but we are also confronted with a demographic time bomb.

It was the Algerian president Boumédienne who said: "One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory." Indeed, Europe nowadays counts up to 50 million Muslims while only 50.000 lived here a century ago. Islam has grown to be the second largest religion in Europe and in twenty years cities as for example Marseilles, Malmö, Brussels and Birmingham will know a majority of Muslim inhabitants. Muslim women on average give birth to 3 to 4 children, whereas native European women barely reach an average of
one point thirty seven children. The power of the numbers is in advantage of Islam.

The European population is aware of this, and is able to observe it on daily basis.
Europeans have had enough of burqas, of chadors, of hijabs and kaftans, Europeans have had enough of the “ritual” slaughter of animals, of the boundless popping up of mosques, Quran schools, and minarets, of the Arab and Turkish writings on bus and tram, enough of halal food at the butchers and stores, of the never ending flow of sighs and demands made by Islam on behalf of “multicultural tolerance” and so called “freedom of religion”. If we want to save Europe, than we will have to push back the islamisation and end the green fascism of radical, totalitarian Islam!

Ladies and gentlemen,

If one would ask me if I’m xenophobic, than I answer: no, I do not object immigrants under condition that they behave, adapt and submit to our morals and values. If one would ask me if I’m islamofobic, than I firmly answer: “yes” since I’m worried by Islam. The biggest mistake we can make in Europe is to picture Islam – for reasons of political correctness – as a religion of peace and tolerance. Islam is indeed a religion of peace and tolerance, but unfortunately only for those Muslims who are willing to submit to Allahs’ will as written down in the Quran.

For dhimmi’s – the unbelievers – Islam is a religion of hatred, of violence and intolerance. Islamophobia is not merely a phenomena of unparalleled fear, but it is the duty of every one who wants to safeguard Europe’s future. Europe means Rome, Greece, Enlightenment and judeo-christian roots. Europe is a continent of castles and cathedrals, not of mosques and minarets. Oriana Fallaci showed us the way in her books “Rage and pride” and “The force of reason”. Therefore I wish to conclude by quoting her in “The force of reason”:

“Islam is like a pool, and a pool is a puddle of water standing still. Water that does not flow away, does not move, and thereby is never purified. The West is like a river nourishing life. It’s like water that flows on, that’s purified and renewed in it’s course, that absorbs other water and finally reaches the vast sea. Thanks to the force of reason we’ll eventually prevail. But hence we must continuously renew, continuously absorb other water and prevent any dam against he flow of the water current.”
