MIM: The PVV presented today her concept electorial program via the new Facebook page of Geert Wilders.
De PVV presenteert vandaag haar conceptverkiezingsprogramma via de nieuwe Facebookpagina van Geert Wilders.
Geert Wilders: ‘‘Ik ben ontzettend trots op het conceptverkiezingsprogramma. De PVV gaat de islam bestrijden, wil de grenzen sluiten, uit de Europese Unie en alle miljarden euro's die we daarmee besparen teruggeven aan de bevolking. Mijn boodschap aan Nederland is: Nederland moet weer van ons worden."
Dutch party suggests closing mosques, banning Quran
Dutch politician Geert Wilders' party, which is leading polls ahead of parliamentary elections next year, vows to reverse "Islamization".
The political party of Dutch politician Geert Wilders, which is leading polls ahead of parliamentary elections next year, has vowed to close mosques and "ban the Quran" in its manifesto, AFP reported on Friday.
"All mosques and Islamic schools closed, a ban on the Quran," said the document outlining the electoral program of the Freedom Party (PVV) ahead of March 2017 legislative elections, which was posted on Wilders' Twitter feed Thursday.
The PVV says it will reverse the "Islamization" of the country with a range of measures including closing the borders, shutting asylum seeker centers, banning migrants from Islamic countries and stopping Muslim women from wearing the headscarf in public.
On the back of Europe's migrant crisis, opinion polls have for months given Wilders' PVV the edge over the current coalition parties of the Labour Party and the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, noted AFP.
Late last year polls predicted soaring support for the PVV saying it could gain as many as 38 seats in the 150-seat parliament, but that has slipped back, according to the news agency. In August, a poll from Ipsos gave it 28 seats — still way up on the 12 it currently has.
The immigrant crisis has polarized the Netherlands, a nation of 17 million people, leading to heated debate and some attacks on refugee centers.
Wilders can be considered somewhat of a controversial figure, especially with regards to his views on Muslims.
His anti-Islam rhetoric has in the past sparked outrage around the Muslim world and prompted death threats that have led to him living under round-the-clock protection.
Late last year, it was revealed that Wilders had been the target of a jihadist assassination attempt.
He also sparked outrage with a plan to broadcast cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed on national television, a plan which was branded a "provocation" by local Muslims.
Wilders is known for his support of Israel, having in the past saying that the Jewish state needs defendable borders and that for this reason Jews must settle Judea and Samaria.
Yesterday, I visited Maassluis. It is a town near Rotterdam, where the indigenous Dutch inhabitants have become the victims of immigrant youths of Moroccan descent.
Cars have been demolished, houses vandalized, people threatened. The Dutch no longer feel free and safe in their own city. When the local radio station interviewed some of the victims and referred to the perpetrators as Moroccans, it received an anonymous letter: "You are racists! Your time will come! I won't take care of it because I am too old. But our boys are the new soldiers."
Maassluis. It is just one of the many Dutch towns and neighborhoods terrorized by Moroccan or Turkish youth gangs. Others are Schilderswijk, Oosterwei, Kanaleneiland, Zaandam, Helmond,… Not surprisingly, a poll shows that 43% of the Dutch people want fewer Moroccan immigrants in our country. These people are not racists; they are decent people, patriots who love their country and do not want to lose it.
The great Ronald Reagan once said that "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." These wise words are more true today than ever before. We are the free men and women of the West.
Freedom is our birthright. But if we fail to defend it, we are bound to lose it. And, sadly, that is exactly what is happening today. 2016's Black Summer of Jihad, with terror attacks all over the free world, teaches us that the enemies of freedom are already among us. The ruling elites all over the Western world have accepted millions of people into our countries without demanding that they assimilate.
Many of these immigrants acquired our nationality. But some do not care for our country at all. They do not love it. They do not respect it. Nor do they respect us and our values.
They carry our passports, but they do not belong to us. They spit on our identity and behave like conquerors. This is particularly true of many immigrants with an Islamic background. That is not surprising. Islam is a totalitarian ideology aimed at establishing tyrannical power over non-Muslims.
Islam commands its followers to make all nations submit to Islamic Sharia law, if necessary through the use of violence and terror.
Last week, we had an important debate in the Dutch Parliament. We discussed the future of our country. I pointed out that we will have no future if we do not de-islamize the Netherlands. Our time is a time for action.
Islam is an existential threat to our survival as a free nation. It violates all the basic principles and freedoms of our Constitution. It discriminates non-Muslims, who have no rights under Islamic Sharia law.
It discriminates women, who according to the Koran are worth only half a man. There is no freedom of religion under Islam. Apostates deserve the death penalty, the Koran tells Muslims that Jews are pigs and monkeys, and Christians have to submit or die. There is no freedom of speech in Islam either. Criticism of Allah or Muhammad is punishable by death. There is no right to personal integrity. Islam advocates cruel corporal punishments, such as whipping, amputations, stoning, beheading. There is no right to live in peace and dignity. Islam orders war until the whole world has been submitted to Allah.
Some seem to think that by allowing freedom to the enemies of freedom we prove that we stand for freedom. The opposite is true. By refusing to draw boundaries to our tolerance, we are handing away our freedom. If we continue being naive we will lose everything. By depriving Islam of the means to destroy freedom, we are not violating freedom; we are preserving it. We should not turn freedom into a snake eating its own tail. Freedom requires a democracy willing to defend itself.
We need a political freedom agenda. It looks like this.
We must end all immigration from Islamic countries. There is more than enough Islam in our countries already. Eurostat, the European Union's statistical office, expects 77 million immigrants to enter Europe in the next half century. Most of them are Islamic. If we do not stop them, we will be facing a catastrophe. We will be colonized and Islamized. We will cease to exist. We can already see how disruptive relatively small groups are. Research by the University of Amsterdam showed that 11% of the Muslims in the Netherlands are prepared to use violence for the sake of Islam. This is more than 100,000 people.
The more Islam we get, the more dangerous and less free our society becomes. Let us keep our countries safe. And lock the door to Islam. We must also stimulate voluntary remigration of those who are already here. And those who stay must adopt our values; they must assimilate and integrate. It is not extremist to demand that Muslims, who want to live in our midst, renounce the hateful doctrine and texts of Islam and abide by our laws. If they commit crimes, act against our laws, impose Sharia law, or wage jihad, we must expel them. My party wants to strip all criminals with dual nationalities of their Dutch nationality and expel them to the country of their other nationality.
These measures are part of our de-islamization plans and have been on our party platform for over ten years. And, finally, in order to remain free, we must honor our freedoms by using them. That is why I will never give up my freedom of speech. Not in parliament nor anywhere else.
I have been dragged to court for asking party members at a meeting whether they want more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. 65% of Dutch Moroccan youths have been suspected of criminal activities. They are six times as often suspects of violent crime as indigenous Dutch, and 22 times as often of hold-ups and street robberies.
They also constitute almost 80% of the Dutch jihadis traveling fighting in Syria for IS. Just last week, a Dutch Moroccan was arrested in Rotterdam for supplying French jihadis with Kalashnikovs and explosives. Nevertheless, according to the public prosecutor, asking Dutch voters whether they want more or less Moroccans in the Netherlands is a criminal offense.
But no matter the outcome of the trial, I will keep speaking. No judge will ever be able to silence me. And no jihadist will succeed either. For twelve years already, I have been on the death list of several Islamic terror organizations, from al-Qaeda to IS and the Taliban. I am under 24/7 protection by the police. I live in a safe house, am driven around in armored cars, have to wear bullet proof vests in public, and have to stand trial in converted bunkers. But I will never shut up. The more they try to do so, the louder I will speak.
It is time to raise our voices. Let them sound like thunder: Freedom has a price. The price is to always defend it, no matter the consequences. To be brave and let no-one bully us into submission. So, let us do our duty and ensure that Reagan's warning never becomes a reality: Extinction is not an option! Freedom or Islam. You cannot have it both ways. There is no middle way.

De SGP wil de islamitische gebedsoproepen verbieden. Een christelijke partij die de godsdienstvrijheid van ánderen in de weg zit? Het leidde vrijdag tot verbaasde reacties.
Partijleider Kees van der Staaij kwam ermee in het AD en op televisie. Zijn uitleg: zulke oproepen passen niet bij „onze culturele gebruiken". ‘Allahu akbar', zei hij ook, wordt soms geroepen door moslims die „mensen de keel afsnijden". „Dan is een wat bescheidener manifestatie in de openbare ruimte alleszins redelijk."
De SGP was óók verbaasd. Maar dan over de ophef. Dit hebben we altijd al gezegd, klinkt het in de partij. Als standpunt is het inderdaad niet nieuw. In 2009 riep Van der Staaij al eens op tot „wijze terughoudendheid" bij culturele uitingen die bijdragen aan „gevoelens van vervreemding en van aantasting van de historische Nederlandse identiteit". In het verkiezingsprogramma van 2012 stond een soortgelijke passage.
SGP wil behoud Nederlandse cultuur: ‘Einde aan oproep minaretten'
‘Dit is niet het Midden-Oosten'
‘We zijn hier niet in het Midden-Oosten,' legt Van der Staaij uit. ‘Moslims hebben hier al ontzettend veel ruimte, veel meer dan religieuze minderheden in moslimlanden. Wij mogen ook gewoon voor onze eigen cultuur opkomen, dat is niet een monopolie van de PVV.'
Toch is het opvallend dat juist de SGP met dit plan komt, de partij die de vrijheid van godsdienst altijd wil beschermen. ‘Maar die vrijheid is niet onbeperkt. We mogen er grenzen aan stellen.' Om het aantal oproepen per moskee aan te pakken zou wel een grondwetswijziging nodig zijn, waarna losse gemeentes mogen ingrijpen.
Heel anders dan kerkklokken
Van der Staaij vindt de islamitische oproepen iets heel anders dan het geluid van kerkklokken. ‘Dat is een Nederlands gebruik, wat ook niet alleen maar in kerken te horen is. Het is een onderdeel van de Nederlandse cultuur. Wat in moskeeën gebeurt, dat ‘Allah is de Grootste' over straat wordt geschald, past daar niet bij.'
Update: Geert Wilders was sentenced to a penalty of 5,000 euros by the Public Prosecutor for exercising his right to free speech.
Reaction Geert Wilders to penal demand of Public Prosecutor
I just heard the penal sentence demanded by the Public Prosecutor: a penalty of 5,000 euros.
Speaking about one of the biggest problems of our country – the problem with Moroccans – is now punishable according to the elite. And, hence, we are slowly but surely losing our freedom of speech. Even asking a question is no longer allowed. Even though millions of people agree. And Moroccans have suddenly become a race. So if you say something about Moroccans, you are now a racist. Nobody understands that. It is utter madness. Only meant to shut you and me up.
While in other countries the people send the elite home, here they want to silence an opposition leader. The Netherlands is running the risk of becoming a dictatorship. It looks like turkey. The differences between The Netherlands and Turkey are getting smaller. The opposition is silenced.
I was elected by nearly a million people. That number will be even higher on March 15th next year. And it is my duty to talk about the problems, even when the politically-correct elite led by Prime Minister Rutte prefers not to mention them. Because looking away and remaining silent is not an option.
I have to say it like it is. What is the use of political cowards who no longer dare to speak the truth? Who are silent about the problems in our country? Who pander to the government? Who cowardly look the other way? Nothing at all! Putting one's head in the sand is cowardness. And if you must keep quiet about problems, because simply asking a question has become punishable, the problems will only grow bigger. Then, The Netherlands will become a dictatorship of fearful and cowardly politicians.
I will never accept that. I will continue to fight for a free and safe Netherlands. That is why Islamic terrorists have been trying to kill me for 12 years. Today, these terrorists rejoice. Wilders is going to be punished. The Public Prosecutor has made himself their ally today.
But I will not allow anyone to shut me up! No terrorist will be able to silence me! No prosecutor in a black gown or cowardly prime minister will get me on my knees! I shall therefore not care about their penal demand at all. They can do whatever they want. It will only make me stronger. I will only get more motivated.
And you can support me with this. By continuing to fight with me for the preservation of freedom of expression. For the maintenance of a safe and free Netherlands. Our country.
