Jordan charges Geert Wilders with “blasphemy and contempt of Muslims”; OIC “deeply annoyed” at Dutch decision not to prosecute him An update on the litigation jihad against Geert Wilders. “Jordan charges Dutch politician with blasphemy,” from Reuters, July 1: AMMAN (Reuters) – A Jordanian prosecutor on Tuesday charged Dutch politician Geert Wilders with blasphemy and contempt of Muslims for making an anti-Koran film and ordered him to stand trial in the kingdom, judicial sources said. In Riyadh, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a league of 56 Muslim nations, said it was “deeply annoyed” after Dutch prosecutors said on Monday they would not take action against Wilders as he was protected by the right to free speech. “The decision … encourages and supports the irresponsible defamatory style followed by some media outlets and instigates feelings of hatred, animosity and antipathy towards Muslims,” the Saudi Arabia-based OIC, said in a statement.

October 10, 2009

By: Thomas Lifson – American Thinker The two major opinion polls in the Netherlands show that the PVV Party of Geert Wilders is leading, and if PVV obtains a plurality in the next election, Wilders would be called upon to organize a ruling coalition. Maayana Miskin of Israel National News reports: A Synovate poll released Wednesday shows PVV in a tight race with the Christian Democratic Alliance (CDA), which currently holds 41 seats.

Geert Wilders – Wikipedia Entry

October 6, 2009

Geert Wilders (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈxeːrt ˈʋɪldərs] or [ˈʝeːʁt ˈʋɪldəʁs]; born 6 September 1963) is a Dutch politician and leader of the Party for Freedom, a party in The Netherlands. Born in the city of Venlo and raised as a Roman Catholic, Wilders attributes his politics to his support for what he calls ‘Judeo-Christian values’. He formed many of his political views in his travels to Israel, as well as the neighboring Arab countries and his early job at the Dutch social insurance agency moved him to politics, where he worked as a speechwriter for the liberal People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy. In 1996, he moved to the city of Utrecht, and was elected in the city council, and later the House of Representatives of the Netherlands. Citing irreconcilable differences on the party’s position on Turkish accession to the European Union, Wilders left the People’s Party in 2004 to form his own party, the Party for Freedom. Since…

Geert Wilders at Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem

October 6, 2009

Posted by Robert Spencer on December 15, 2008 Geert Wilders at Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem: “If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other places to release its energy and its desire for conquest” I’m on the way back to the Jihad Watch offices from the Facing Jihad conference, which was held at the Menachem Begin Center in Jerusalem on Sunday. I served as Master of Ceremonies for the conference, which featured presentations by John Lewis, Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch, Daniel Pipes, and others. Pamela Geller covered the conference on Twitter and has more coverage at Atlas Shrugs (where I got the photos above, and she has others there also) — with, I believe, some videos and more yet to come. The highlight of the day was a screening of Geert Wilders’s film Fitna, receiving its Middle East premiere. Wilders delivered this address after the film. Thank you very much.It’s a…

Holland's national suicide note

October 6, 2009

By Ezra Levant on January 21, 2009 The Dutch court of appeal has ruled that Geert Wilders, the Member of Parliament and anti-terrorism activist, must stand trial for hate speech. You can read the English page of the court’s website announcing the decision here. It is a national suicide note, a white flag of surrender flown by a once-great empire in the face of illiberal fascists and hoodlums. It is a homicide note, too — announcing the murder of freedom of speech and freedom of religion. And it is a warning note to other Western democracies. The warning is this: liberal democracy, multiculturalism and immigration — pick any two. Holland has picked multiculturalism and immigration, and has heaved liberal democracy overboard. The announcement is so eye-scratchingly stupid, it really must be read line for line. Here goes. (The spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors are from the court’s own English translation): Amsterdam, 21 january 2009 – On 21 January…
