Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the
Netherlands , at the Four Seasons, New York , introducing an Alliance of
Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem .

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me.
I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world.
There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be
optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of
Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of
Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the
West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization,
facing an Islamic Europe.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe . Then, I
will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a
meeting in Jerusalem .

The Europe you know is changing.
You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities,
sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is
another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim
mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim
neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.
And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well.
It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless
tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or
slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many
street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be
hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos
controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and
they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the
building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions
of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by
city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe . With larger
congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city
there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in
the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam
, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the
under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of
Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in
many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be
mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that
would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all
pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively
by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’. Satellite
dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the
country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive
to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly
true of Darwin . The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught
because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal
system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without
head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by
Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave
of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on
the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel . I could go on forever
with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe . San Diego
University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the
population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard
Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if
the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are
few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French
Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to
France . One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks.
The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of
British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims
demand what they call ‘respect’. And this is how we give them respect.
We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in
the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members
with passports from Morocco and Turkey .

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty
crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and
bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the
low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’.
Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our
societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.
Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against
non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods,
their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote
not to be ignored.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the
prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be
criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like
Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.
But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had
several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he
fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had
prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe
of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for
Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god,
and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a
political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for
society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every
aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with
freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you
want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or
national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde
force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The
public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees
Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it
dozens of times. I support Israel First, because it is the Jewish
homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including
Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is
our first line of defense.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating
Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad,
like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in
Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia . Israel is simply in the way.
The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against
the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are
meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic
imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its
desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children
to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can
sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address
the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid,
to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean
our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and
accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give
enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly
so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.
The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but
only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for
world domination. If they can get Israel , they can get everything.
So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of
Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. In my country,
the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass
immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War
II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there
is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as
the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you
can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and
democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss
of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies,
enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to
America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem
.

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never
had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter,
by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe ,
American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home,
and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we
are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty
to Europe ‘s children in the same state in which it was offered to us.
We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would
never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not
have the right to do so.

We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity
from destroying the free world that we know.
