There was a truly excellent op-ed in Dutch daily "De Volkskrant" by Geert Wilders and Martin Bosma of the Dutch PVV, the Partij voor Vrijheid (Party for Freedom). As much as I resent simple cut-and-pasting, I thought it worthwile to simply use the excellent translation made by poster VH over at Gates of Vienna, because the case Wilders and Bosma make is so convinving that this article deserves far more attention than the "Low Countries Sphere"! So here goes. Thank you, Baron Bodissey, Dymphna and VH! (first follows demi-screenshot from De Volkskrant, since it is they who gave Wilders a forum in the first place):


Directly from GoV:

Below is a Below is a magnificent op-ed from De Volkskrant, written by Geert Wilders and Martin Bosma, who are both PVV members of the Dutch Parliament. The translation is by our indefatigable Flemish correspondent VH:

by Geert Wilders and Martin Bosma

"It is one of the central doctrines of the Leftists’ church: “land for peace.”

That was supposed to put an end to the conflict in the Middle East. These days we encounter the definite end of that dream. The Israeli army last Sunday returned to Netzarim. Three years ago, Netzarim and other so-called ‘settlements’ were abandoned as a part of the framework of disengagement. This withdrawal should have then led to peace. But 5,000 arguments for a different reality rained down in the form of Kassam rockets on the residents of the Negev.

geertwilders“Land for Peace” is a medicine based on the wrong diagnosis. The war against Israel is not a territorial conflict and thus can not be solved with territorial concessions. Giving away an area does not help. Hamas cum suis are not fighting for pieces of land but for the total final victory of Islam, to which the rapid destruction of Israel is only a transitional stage. The conflict is jihad, the violent duty of every Muslim. Israel is located on the fault line of the dar-al-Islam and dar-al-Harb. To Islam, all of Israel is occupied territory and Tel Aviv is as much a “settlement” as was Netzarim. The Hamas charter doesn’t know the word ‘polder model’.


The withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 was a huge encouragement to aggressive Islam. What the West convulsively tried to view as a step towards peace is translated by true Muslims as a sign of weakness. The 5,000 rockets from Gaza were therefore the logical consequence of an ideology that seeks to destroy the West. Samuel Huntington, who ironically enough died in the week before the first bombing of Hamas, already wrote it: “Islam has bloody borders”. You can move those bloody borders of Islam, but with that you only shift the jihad. What does it show? “Settlements” are no barrier to peace, but a barrier against terror.

Muslims view the conflict as an Islam-related conflict. It is not without reason that during pro-Hamas demonstrations over the whole world “Allahu akhbar” is prominently chanted. Saturday this was illustrated when Muslim colonizers demonstrated in Amsterdam, together with the extreme Left. The SP (Harry van Bommel), the Olive Trees Campaign/ICCO (from Doekle Terpstra), and the inevitable Gretta Duisenberg showed how much the Left in the Netherlands has merged with Islam and hatred of Israel.

My colleague Van Bommel showed without the slightest embarrassment his true extreme face by publicly and loudly calling for another intifada against Israel. The Left demonstrates with flags of Hamas and Hezbollah, along with portraits of Khomeini and the Hezbollah leader Nasrallah.

The fight against Israel is a fight against Europe and the Netherlands

Seventy years after Auschwitz, in the streets of Amsterdam, partly at the expense of the taxpayer, sounds the cry “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas.” This is what Doekle the Dhimmi [Doekle Terpstra, Christian Democrat] apparently means with his “benoemen en bouwen” [“naming and building”]. Would he view the Jew Haters of Saturday as moderate Muslims?

Therefore, never give away any more land to the Arabs. But what then? To begin with, there is already a Palestinian state, and that is Jordan. This land covers nearly eighty percent of the historic Palestine. Most residents of Jordan are Palestinians, for instance queen Rania. Those who are looking for a territorial solution have thus found it. An eventual second Palestinian state is no improvement, but rather an encouragement for more jihad and thus more bloodshed. Judea and Samaria, the heart of Israel, must therefore remain in the hands of Israel whatever the cost, with Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the Jewish state.


The war against Israel is permanent because it is jihad. However, the conflict can be made manageable and the Netherlands can play a role in this. To begin with, deterrence should again be the cornerstone of the Israeli security policy. That used to be so until Israel in 1992 surrendered to the Oslo wishing dream. The Netherlands must help to press forward the notion that Israel is fighting for the West and therefore must not give in to the Arabs. Not an inch. If Israel falls, Europe is next. Israel is our first defensive frontline. The fight against Israel is a fight against Europe and the Netherlands.

The billions that the EU and the UN in past years dumped down the endless drain in Gaza must be reversed. The Palestinians have done nothing positive with the money, apart from making it serve the madly popular Hamas terror. It would be good to invest that money in masterful Israeli science and high-tech. The tiny state of Israel has grown to become a global center where the brightest minds in the world are creating inventions on a daily basis that have been a blessing for all mankind. Such a change will provide a boost to the Israeli economy. This success shows the whole world that Israel is not of transitory nature, but a persistent source of progress.

Would it not be great if the money that now goes to the terrorist infrastructure of Hamas, might be used by, for example, the Weizman Institute in Rechovot to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis? International aid money, not for death and destruction but for a future to our sick and elderly. A more beautiful beginning of the new year is cannot be imagined.

And to the Israeli army: kol hakawod, all success! You fight for us too."

Geert Wilders and Martin Bosma are respectively fraction leader and member of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Parliament of The Netherlands and recently visited Israel.


Spearpoint in the War on Islamic Terror: the Israeli Army. "Israel is our first defensive frontline." Kol Hakawod!!!

In the night of 31 December to January 1st, 1,147 cars were torched throughout France.




Some would say it's "just" demonstrations. I say it's a challenge to the police, a reconnoitring mission, testing how far they can go. There are of course the usual leftwing airheads - or maybe not, "airheads" implies they are naive, but I fear it's becoming crystal clear they are deliberately siding with islamists - who claim these are rightful demos against Israels incursion in Gaza. But then one can ask why on earth Europes muslims have to export their problems to our cities. What we are increasingly seeing is a deliberate attempt to impose their point of view on the indigenous population. When interviewed, the spokesmen of the muslim organizations - invariably posing as the "moderates" - claim they are sooooo sorry for the mayhem, the destroyed shop windows, the terrorized locals, the damaged infrastructure etc etc etc BUT in the same breath DEMAND we should understand "muslim anger". The following video is from Mulhouse. Truth to say, all seems quiet. Yup, the quiet of submission. No sane Frenchman would dare to venture out. All those flag-wielding Turks, Algerians and Moroccans claim it's their democratic "right" to demonstrate in favor of Palestine - but I GUARANTEE you they would DENY that right to Frenchmen demonstrating for Israel. Anyone bearing a flag with the Star of David round these barbarians would be lynched. From the website of François Desouche:

More from Desouche, a scene in a Parisian neighborhood:

"21,000 persons demonstrated in Paris against the situation in the Middle East. Certain vandals threw stairs taken from cafes to the security forces, who responded with tear gas. Some persons mounted vehicles, others destroyed public infrastructure. On the Boulevard Haussmann, several cars were torched, some fifteen others were turned upside down, then smashed apart. Shop windows were thrown in.

In Lyon, between 8,000 and 15,000 persons. In Marseille, there were 15,000 according to the organizers, 4,000 according to the police. In Bordeaux, there were between 2,000 and 3,000 demonstrators, in Lille 3,000, in Toulouse between 600 and 800 accooriding to the source, in Nantes between 1,700 and 4,000."

It's not that French security forces were unprepared. Galliawatch reports that:

"The French government is taking exceptional precautions on New Year's Eve. The unusual measures are a reflection of the dangers they perceive, but rarely admit to openly. This article is from Libération:

FrenchSecuritySeven thousand men will be mobilized in France to reenforce the usual deployment on New Year's Eve, announced Interior Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie. The government had already decided to reenforce security in the big cities on December 17, following the discovery of explosives with no detonator in the Printemps department store in Paris. [Note: The event in question took place on December 16 when the police, alerted by a letter signed by the "Afghan Revolutionary Front", found 5 sticks of dynamite in the public toilets of the department store. In their letter they demanded the withdrawal of French troops from Afghanistan before the end of February 2009, "otherwise we will strike again in your capitalist department stores and this time without giving you warning." (Source: 20 Minutes)]"

From Denmark, Danish blogger Snaphanen reports that the following reaching out posters from the country's successfully integrated muslim minority are adorning the square in front of Copenhagen's Town Hall:


In Brussels, Belgium there were demos which turned violent, with cars burnt and public and private property destroyed. But it was in Antwerp, home base of the terrorist-related Arab European League, that the most havoc was wrought:


The caption from Het Laatste Nieuws reads:


Because of the totally derailed demonstration of the Arab European League (AEL), many Jews in Antwerp dare no longer venture out on the streets whenever protestors are around. They fear vandalism and violence. An internal sms service of Antwerps Jewish community warns jewish people to steer clear off the Turnhoutsebaan and the Diamond District, writes Michael Freilich of Joods Actueel."

Joods Actueel also reports that an arson attack on a house in which a Jewish family lived, and where 12 children were present, narrowly failed:

Fire bomb at home of Jewish family in Antwerp.

"In the course of the day [Sunday January 4] it became known that in the night from Saturday to Sunday a fire bomb was thrown at a house in Antwerp. The house belongs to a Jewish family. As if by a miracle the fire extinguished itself. The consequences could otherwise have been disastrous because at the time of the attack 12 children were sleeping in the house.

The targeted house is located in the Oedenkovenstraat in Borgerhout, within walking distance of the Turnhoutsebaan. The Turnhoutsebaan was in 2002 the location of serious riots after an AEL [Arabisch Europese Liga, “Arabic European Legue”] demonstration went out of control."

If we are to preserve our freedom and prosperity, we must prepare our armies for battle against our muslim minorities BEFORE they turn into majorities. If ever that critical treshold is reached, Europe is done. I am sorry that I have to put it so bluntly, but 1,400 years of history teach us that wherever the followers of the vile "Prophet" have spread, violence and loss of rights and human degradation for "non-believers" have invariably followed. Why would it be different this time? It is too soon to judge whether the prodigious American experiment in the Middle East, started by President Bush, will bear fruit and if it does in decades to come, it may be too late for Europe and our magnificent civilization. It is thus better to err on the side of caution. It is with pain in my heart that I therefore state that Europes armed forces must prepare for battle in the streets, with heavy armor, artillery and ground attack aircraft, against muslim usurpation of power and the challenge to our democratically chosen representation.

Anyone who, in light of the very clear trend towards destabilization of our societies and the erosion of democratic values at the hands of our muslim minorities, the most radical elements of which who don't even hide their aspirations anymore, is either a fool, a liar, or a traitor of his people.

I must emphasize again that I do not write this down lightly. I am a hard-working small business owner and tax payer and a law-abiding citizen. I try to be a good husband and father. I'm not your run of the mill trigger happy fanatic. I would PREFER, and ENCOURAGE, that our muslim minorities adapt to our ways and laws and try to become good contributing citizens, like the truck driver from Niger who delivered goods to my business this afternoon. I sense - know - that he is not challenging our systems and institutions. He is welcome here, and I wish him all the best and a long and happy life in our country.

It is however clear but to the fools among us, that Europes islamic communities have a different agenda than my truck driver from Niger.

The Dutch are completely nuts about Luca Prins, an instant starlet who participated in the traditional "New Years Dive" on January 1 in Egmond aan Zee, a Dutch coastal town. The reason: see above. Dutch daily De Telegraaf reports: "Ladies and Gentlemen, we got her!". The popular blog GeenStijl has more pics.
