Geert Wilders’ (Anti-Islam) Speech in Copenhagen
From the PVV website, here is the text of the speech given
by Geert Wilders in
Ladies and gentlemen,
Thank you, Danish Free Press Society, again for inviting me
to speak to you here in
And last but not least, I thank the Danish border police for having allowed me into the country.
Ladies and gentlemen, last week was a tremendous week. My party, the Dutch Freedom Party, came second in the Dutch elections for the European Parliament!
In many cities, including
Meanwhile here in
There is more good news these days. In Europe the socialists
— or social democrats, as they prefer to call themselves — lost nearly
everywhere: in the
I will not terribly miss Jacqui Smith, the British cabinet
member that worked so hard to have me refused in the
Why is it good news that the socialists lost by such a margin?
Let me answer this myself. It’s good news because socialists
are the most inveterate cultural relativists in
Our Western elite, whether it are politicians, journalists or judges, have lost their way completely. All sense of reality has vanished. All common sense has been thrown to the wind. They take all efforts to deny the things that take place in front of our eyes, and deny everything that is so obviously seen by everyone else.
They won’t stand firm on any issue. Their cultural relativism affects absolutely everything up to the point where they no longer see the difference between good and evil, or between nonsense and logical common sense. Everything is pushed into a grey area, a foggy marsh without beginning or end. The only moral standard they still seem to apply is the question whether or not it is approved by Muslims. Everything Muslims disapprove, they disapprove too.
And so, the voters have had enough. Because they of course
As for those present here today, I’m sure everyone knows how
intractable the problems with Islam are in
According to the Dutch Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis,
mass immigration has to date cost the Dutch taxpayer more than one hundred
billion Euros. According to the Danish national bank, every Danish Muslim
immigrant costs the Danish state more than 300,000 Euros. A Swedish economist
has calculated that mass immigration costs the Swedish taxpayer twenty-seven
billion dollars annually. In
Ladies and gentlemen, you may know of the Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels, who recently said that Muslim integration in the West is simply impossible. Now, that is not a novel idea. A certain Frenchman said pretty much the same thing in 1959. I quote, “Those who recommend integration must be considered pea-brained even if they are scholars and scientists. Just try mixing oil and vinegar. Then shake the bottle. After a moment the two substances will separate again. Do you really believe French society could absorb ten million Muslims, who would be twenty million tomorrow and forty million the day after? In fact, my own village would no longer be Colombey-les-deux-Églises but would rather come to be known as Colombey-les-deux-mosques.”
This quote, you guessed it, is from none other than the former French President Charles de Gaulle.
Now, I do not know whether Sennels and De Gaulle were right
in their conclusion that Muslims are incapable of integrating into other
cultures. I think in reality we do see Muslims on individual level assimilating
into our societies. But what I do know is that very many Muslims do not want to
integrate. Again, the facts don’t lie: four in ten British Muslim students want
Sharia law to be implemented, while one-third of British Muslim students are in
favour of a worldwide caliphate. Seven out of ten Spanish Muslims consider
their self a Muslim first, instead of a Spanish citizen. One-third of French
Muslims do not object to suicide attacks, half of Dutch Muslims admit to
‘understanding’ the 9/11 attacks. Seven out of ten youth prisoners here in
Some time ago an interview was held in
“Your laws do not coincide with the Koran, Muslims can only be ruled by Shariah law.
We will declare
We will be your Trojan Horse, we will rule, Allah akbar.”
End of quote.
Ladies and gentlemen, make no mistake: Islam has always
attempted to conquer
Unfortunately, the Al-Hijra doctrine is very successful. For
the first time in world history there are dozens of millions of Muslims living
far outside the Dar al-Islam, the Islamic world. Al-Hijra may be the end of
European civilization as we know it: The second Dutch city,
As I said, many of those Muslims in
Ladies and gentlemen, these are of course shocking facts, figures and statements. However, they are not particularly surprising to anybody who has some knowledge of the Koran and knows who Muhammad was.
In this connection, ladies and gentlemen, allow me to very briefly discuss the essence of Islam, and let me come straight to the point: Islam is not so much a religion as, first and foremost, an ideology; to be precise, like communism and fascism, a political, totalitarian ideology, with worldwide aspirations.
Of course, there are many moderate Muslims. However, there is no such a thing as a moderate Islam. Islam’s heart lies in the Koran. The Koran is an evil book that calls for violence, murder, terrorism, war and submission. The Koran describes Jews as monkeys and pigs. The Koran calls upon Muslims to kill the Kaffirs, the non-Muslims.
The problem is that the injunctions in the Koran are not restricted to time or place. Rather, they apply to all Muslims, in any period. Another problem is that Muslims also regard the Koran as the word of Allah. Which means that the Koran is immune from criticism.
Apart from the Koran, there is also the life of Muhammad, who fought in dozens of wars and was in the habit of decapitating Jews with his own sword. The problem here is that, to Muslims, Muhammad is ‘the perfect man’, whose life is the model to follow.
This is why Jihadists slaughtered innocent people in
Now is clear why Winston Churchill, in his book ‘The second
world war’, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Literature, compared the
Koran to Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’. Now is clear why the famous Swiss
theologian, Karl Barth, in 1936 said, and I quote, “It is impossible to understand
national socialism unless we see it in fact as a new Islam, its myth as a new
Allah, and Hitler as this new Allah’s prophet.” Now is clear why Heinrich
Himmler was an admirer of Islam. And now is clear why President Obama, who last
Just like communism, fascism and nazism, Islam is a threat to everything we stand for. It is a threat to democracy, to the constitutional state, to equality for men and women, to freedom and civilisation. Wherever you look in the world, the more Islam you see, the less freedom you see. Islam is a threat to the Europe of Bach and Michelangelo, Shakespeare and Socrates, Voltaire and Galileo.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is one Western country that has
been forced to fight for its values since the very first day of its existence:
Ladies and gentlemen, I am very much in favour of a
two-state solution. One Jewish state called
Ladies and gentlemen, wherever Islam and cultural
relativism, advocated by Shariah-socialists, come together, freedom of
expression is threatened. In
Ladies and gentlemen, I strongly suggest that we should defend freedom of speech, with all our strength. Free speech is the most important of all our many civil rights. Free speech is the cornerstone of our modern free societies. Without free speech there is no democracy, no freedom. It is our obligation to defend free speech. It is our obligation to preserve the heritage of the British Magna Charta and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man. It is our obligation to defend the American Bill of Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Human rights protect the freedom of individuals but they do not protect ideologies. I propose two things:
I propose a boycott of the UN Human Rights Council. Annually this Council adopts resolutions that attempt to kill free speech and the concept of human rights. Let there be no mistake about it, the UN Human Rights Council is a threat to free speech in the West.
I propose to repeal all hate speech laws in
Unfortunately, however, if we really wish to combat the Islamization of Europe effectively, we will have to do more than guard or extend freedom of speech. In this regard it is my firm conviction that we will have to take the following measures:
First, we will have to end all forms of cultural relativism. For this purpose we will need an amendment to our constitutions stating that our European cultural foundation is Judeo-Christian and Humanistic in nature. To the cultural relativists, the Shariah-socialists, I would proudly say, “Our Western culture is superior to Islamic culture.” Or to quote Wafa Sultan when she compared the Western culture with Islam: “It’s not a clash of civilizations, it’s a clash between barbarity and reason”. I fully agree with her.
Second, we will have to stop mass immigration from Muslim countries and promote voluntary repatriation.
Third, we will have to expel criminal foreigners and, following denaturalisation, criminals with dual nationality. I have a clear message to all Muslims in our societies: if you subscribe to our laws, values and constitution you are very welcome to stay and we will even help you to assimilate. But if you cross the red line and commit crimes, start thinking and acting like jihad or sharia we will expel you the same out of our countries.
Fourth, we will have to close down all Islamic schools for they are fascist institutions, to prevent any further indoctrination of young children with an ideology of violence and hatred.
Fifth, we will have to close down all radical and forbid the
construction of any new mosques, there is enough Islam in
Sixth, last but not least, we will have to get rid of all those cowardly so-called leaders. We enjoy the privilege of living in a democracy. Let’s use that privilege by replacing cowards with heroes. Let’s have fewer Chamberlains and more Churchills. Lets elect real leaders.
In short, ladies and gentlemen, my main message of today is that we have to start fighting back. No defence, but offence. We have to fight back and demonstrate that millions of people are sick and tired of it all and refuse to take any more. We must make it clear that millions of freedom-loving people are saying ‘enough is enough’.
Ladies and gentlemen,
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. My generation does not own this freedom, we are merely its custodians. We cannot strike a deal with Mullahs and imams. We cannot surrender and give up our liberties, we simply do not have the right to do so.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the winning mood! Cultural relativists and Shariah-socialists are losing, freedom loving people are winning. Things are changing for the better.
Ladies and gentlemen, and I leave you with this: We will never give in, we will never give up, we will never surrender, we have to win, and we will win!
Thank you very much.
