You just know that after a statement like this, the jihadist nut jobs are going to work!
Today Geert Wilders again came out guns blazing. In an op-ed in the flamingly multicultural Volkskrant (NL) he stated that like 'Mein Kampf' the Quran must become a banned book.
Geert Wilders, the controversial leader of the anti-immigration PVV party, has called for a ban on the Koran in the Netherlands. The Islamic holy book is, he says ‘Fascist’, ‘wretched’ and encourages violence. He wants the book banned from shops, homes and mosques.
In a letter published in today’s Volkskrant, Wilders compares the Koran to Hitler’s Mein Kampf and points out that this book has been banned since the end of the Second World War.
A ban on the Koran would be a clear signal to Islamists which use the book as an ‘excuse and inspiration’ for violence, says Wilders.
The op-ed was inspired by the attack on Ehsan Jami, president of the Dutch Committee for Ex-muslims, this weekend. Jami, leaving a supermarket with a woman friend, was roughed up by three characters he described as 'two moroccan looking and one somali looking, with a beard'. According to Jami, the three called him a 'Jew' and a 'traitor'(1).
Geert Wilders is the kind of politician we could use in Canada and the U.S. Someone who sees things for what they are, and what must be done about them.
