Wilders Announces "Facing Jihad" Conference in Jerusalem

Robert Spencer has posted at Jihad Watch the full text of Party of Freedom, the Netherlands, chairman Geert Wilders' September 25th address at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem in December. Wilders concisely describes to his audience the situation of a Europe abandoned by its political and cultural leaders and facing a capitulation to Islam that may arrive even sooner than expected:

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 danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.
But Wilders sees also the beginnings of hope in Europe:

Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their backs on freedom, the public does not. 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 to our national identity. I don’t think the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.

Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded parties in Europe. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at the time.
Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also be Europe’s last chance.

This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. Thanks to Professor Aryeh Eldad, a member of Knesset, we will be able to watch Fitna in the Knesset building and discuss the jihad. We are organizing this event in Israel to emphasize the fact that we are all in the same boat together, and that Israel is part of our common heritage. Those attending will be a select audience. No racist organizations will be allowed. And we will only admit parties that are solidly democratic.

This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support.

As the US slips and slides towards an Obama presidency that will aide and abet Islamization in every form that it can get away with, cheered on by our own craven cultural "elites", we too must depend on the ability and willingness of enough real patriots to wake up, pay attention, educate themselves about the danger we face, speak out, and take action. Geert Wilders is once again taking a courageous and pivotal step in that direction by organizing this conference. He and all those who recognize this as yet another round in the death match between freedom and totalitarianism deserve our encouragement.

During my middle school adolescence, students memorized speeches and poems of historic significance, like the Preamble to the Constitution to the United States of America, The Gettysburg Address, "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus engraved at the Statue of Liberty etc.

What future are we going to permit for our progeny? Will our children learn to recite these meaningful words, and embrace this remarkable speech given by Geert Wilder's - - - or the qur'an?

Geert Wilders is an incredibly brave intellectual mensch! He asks for our support . . .

" This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. . . .This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support."

I have pasted this speech along with the link to FITNA (rosetta stone translations page) into e-mail and sent it to everyone in my address book.

BTW, if you missed it . .. Geert Wilders was on Glenn Beck's show this week and parts of FITNA finally aired on national tv.

This speech will piggy-back enormously well with the mass circulation (28 million DVD's distributed for free) of OBSESSION (39 minute clip via google).

I repaired the link in your post. You had a comma instead of period before the suffix.

Thanks AOW. At least now I know it was my eyesight and not the link process, which seems to be improved from last time I posted.

All that said in this fine post is true. I suggest all liberals in Europe to become right wing at least in the face of the Islamic menace and stop any more immigration of the diabolic folk.
America is also in the same danger.
