Today’s Wilders Round-up

22 02 2009

I’ve decided to make the round-up a twice-weekly segment. It’s just way easier to keep up on, and besides, the story is sort of starting to die down, update-wise. Perhaps eventually I’ll even be able to make it into a weekly segment. If there are any really breaking updates, then maybe I’ll just post about that individually, and then I can do a blanket round-up once or twice a week in the future.

Vlad Tepes – Geert Wilders speech. Rome February 19 2009:

I feel very honoured to have been invited to speak here in Rome, to speak here in this splendid city, the cradle of our Western civilization.

As you perhaps know, Oriana Fallaci is one of my heroes. She definitely was one of the greatest examples of bravery and honesty. Her brilliant books ‘The Rage and the Pride’ and ‘The Force of Reason’ are my guidelines that inspire me day after day. Mr. Manocchia, Una via per Oriana, thank you very much for remembering the great Oriana Fallaci. The world should remember her forever.

Ladies and gentlemen, following in the footsteps of Oriana Fallaci, I want to warn you for a great threat. This great threat is called Islam.

The Telegraph – Geert Wilders to sue Jacqui Smith over decision to deport controversial film-maker:

The legal action would have the backing of the Dutch Government, in a move which could aggravate the diplomatic row over the ban between London and Amsterdam.
Mr Wilders said he was looking to take legal action against the Home Secretary for “blatant discrimination” in the High Court or International Court in the Hague.


The Dutch Politician and film maker was sent back to Holland on Thursday night after trying to enter Britain to show his anti Muslim film Fitna in the House of Lords.


Mr Wilders had been invited to Westminster by Ukip peer Lord Pearson to show is 17 minute film Fitna, which criticise the Koran as a “facist book”.

Mr Wilders is being encouraged to sue the Government by Maxime Verhagen, the Dutch foreign minister who is still furious with the Home Office’s decision.

He said he would back Wilders in a possible decision to bring a case against the British Government’s “disgraceful decision”.

Mr Verhagen said: “Everybody, but especially a Parliamentarian from an European Union member country, has the right to freedom of speech.”

Beer ‘N’ Sandwiches – Geert Wilders Shows Fitna in Rome :

Fitna was shown in Rome and Wilders was present proving that Italy is a much more free society than Great Britain which constrains and cajoles in the name of the intolerant New Labour creed that tolerates no dissent from its worldview. It is good to see that the cultural heart of Western Civilisation stands firm against the tide of Islamist intimidation that says that no one can speak out against or question Islam. The Italian’s have shown the metal of their imperial Roman roots and stood firm against the bullies who want to transform their society into an Islamic state under sharia.
