The Koran and Mein Kampf: From Winston Churchill, to Geert Wilders


 Their Agreement on the Koranic Kampf

Update (hat tip Jihad Watch): Wilders Steadfast

Wilders said Monday (yesterday) he has begun negotiations with Dutch broadcasters about airing the 15-minute film, “Fitna” He said he will only allow them to show it in its entirety, and if they refuse, he plans to show it to the media and post it on the Internet.


While we await the release of Dutch MP Geert Wilders 15 minute documentary on the Koran and Violence, it is worth recalling (hat tip Daniel Pipes) that  Winston Churchill  on p. 50 of From War to War, the first part of the first volume of his 6-part Second World War, proclaimed Hitler’s Mein Kampf to be, 

“…the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.” 

Here is a Parliamentary speech Wilders gave on the subject of the Koran, Islam, and violence this past September (on his birthday), which appears to anticipate the contents of his documentary: 

Madam Speaker, allow me, first, to express my sincere thanks to you personally for having planned a debate on Islam on the very day of my birthday [September 6]. I could not have wished for a nicer present!

Madam Speaker, approximately 1400 years ago war was declared on us by an ideology of hate and violence which arose at the time and was proclaimed by a barbarian who called himself the Prophet Mohammed. I am referring to Islam. 

Madam Speaker, let me start with the foundation of the Islamic faith, the Koran. The Koran’s core theme is about the duty of all Muslims to fight non-Muslims; an Islamic Mein Kampf, in which fight means war, jihad. The Koran is above all a book of war – a call to butcher non-Muslims (2:191, 3:141, 4:91, 5:3), to roast them (4:56, 69:30-69:32), and to cause bloodbaths amongst them (47:4). Jews are compared to monkeys and pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:166), while people who believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God must according to the Koran be fought (9:30 [9:29]). Madam Speaker, the West has no problems with Jews or Christians, but it does have problems with Islam. It is still possible, even today, for Muslims to view the Koran, which they regard as valid for all time, as a licence to kill. And that is exactly what happens. The Koran is worded in such a way that its instructions are addressed to Muslims for eternity, which includes today’s Muslims.This in contrast to texts in the Bible, which is formulated as a number of historical narratives, placing events in a distant past. Let us remind ourselves that it was Muslims, not Jews or Christians, who committed the catastrophic terrorist attacks in New York, Madrid and London; and that it was no coincidence that Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered by a Muslim, Mohammed Bouyeri.Madam Speaker, I acknowledge that there are people who call themselves Muslims and who respect our laws. My party, the Freedom Party, has nothing against such people, of course.However, the Koran does have something against them. For it is stated in the Koran in Sura 2, verse 85, that those believers who do not believe in everything the Koran states will be humiliated and receive the severest punishment; which means that they will roast in Hell. In other words, people who call themselves Muslims but who do not believe, for example, in Sura 9, verse 30 [9:30], which states that Jews and Christians must be fought, or, for example, in Sura 5, verse 38, which states that the hand of a thief must be cut off, such people will be humiliated and roast in Hell.Note that it is not me who is making this up. All this can be found in the Koran. The Koran also states that Muslims who believe in only part of the Koran are in fact apostates, and we know what has to happen to apostates. They have to be killed.

Madam Speaker, the Koran is a book that incites to violence. I remind the House that the distribution of such texts is unlawful according to Article 132 of our Penal Code. In addition, the Koran incites to hatred and calls for murder and mayhem. The distribution of such texts is made punishable by Article 137(e). The Koran is therefore a highly dangerous book; a book which is completely against our legal order and our democratic institutions. In this light, it is an absolute necessity that the Koran be banned for the defence and reinforcement of our civilisation and our constitutional state. I shall propose a second-reading motion to that effect.

Madam Speaker, there is no such thing as “moderate Islam”. As Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said the other day, and I quote, “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it”. Islam is in pursuit of dominance. It wishes to exact its imperialist agenda by force on a worldwide scale (8:39). This is clear from European history. Fortunately, the first Islamic invasion of Europe was stopped at Poitiers in 732; the second in Vienna in 1683. Madam Speaker, let us ensure that the third Islamic invasion, which is currently in full spate, will be stopped too in spite of its insidious nature and notwithstanding the fact that, in contrast to the 8th and 17th centuries, it has no need for an Islamic army because the scared “dhimmis” in the West, also those in Dutch politics, have left their doors wide open to Islam and Muslims.

Apart from conquest, Madam Speaker, Islam is also bent on installing a totally different form of law and order, namely Sharia law. This makes Islam, apart from a religion for hundreds of millions of Muslims also, and in particular, a political ideology (with political/constitutional/Islamic basic values, etc). Islam is an ideology without any respect for others; not for Christians, not for Jews, not for non‑believers and not for apostates. Islam aims to dominate, subject, kill and wage war.

Madam Speaker, the Islamic incursion must be stopped. Islam is the Trojan Horse in Europe. If we do not stop Islamification now, Eurabia and Netherabia will just be a matter of time. One century ago, there were approximately 50 Muslims in the Netherlands. Today, there are about 1 million Muslims in this country. Where will it end? We are heading for the end of European and Dutch civilisation as we know it.

Where is our Prime Minister in all this? In reply to my questions in the House he said, without batting an eyelid, that there is no question of our country being Islamified. Now, this reply constituted a historical error as soon as it was uttered. Very many Dutch citizens, Madam Speaker, experience the presence of Islam around them. And I can report that they have had enough of burkas, headscarves, the ritual slaughter of animals, so‑called honour revenge, blaring minarets, female circumcision, hymen restoration operations, abuse of homosexuals, Turkish and Arabic on the buses and trains as well as on town hall leaflets, halal meat at grocery shops and department stores, Sharia exams, the Finance Minister’s Sharia mortgages, and the enormous overrepresentation of Muslims in the area of crime, including Moroccan street terrorists.

In spite of all this, Madam Speaker, there is hope. Fortunately. The majority of Dutch citizens have become fully aware of the danger, and regard Islam as a threat to our culture. My party, the Freedom Party, takes those citizens seriously and comes to their defence. Many Dutch citizens are fed up to the back teeth and yearn for action. However, their representatives in The Hague are doing precisely nothing. They are held back by fear, political correctness or simply electoral motives. This is particularly clear in the case of PvdA, the Dutch Labour Party, which is afraid of losing Muslim voters.

The Prime Minister said in Indonesia the other day that Islam does not pose any danger. Minister Donner believes that Sharia law should be capable of being introduced in the Netherlands if the majority want it. Minister Vogelaar babbles about the future Netherlands as a country with a Judeo‑Christian‑Islamic tradition, and that she aims to help Islam take root in Dutch society. In saying this, the Minister shows that she has obviously gone stark raving mad. She is betraying Dutch culture and insulting Dutch citizens. Madam Speaker, my party, the Freedom Party, demands that Minister Vogelaar retract her statement. If the Minister fails to do so, the Freedom Party parliamentary group will withdraw its support for her.

No Islamic tradition must ever be established in the Netherlands: not now and also not in a few centuries’ time.Madam Speaker, let me briefly touch on the government’s response to the WRR [Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy] report. On page 12 of its response, the government states that Islam is not contrary to democracy or human rights. All I can say to that is that things can’t get much more idiotic than this.

Madam Speaker, it is a few minutes to twelve. If we go on like this, Islam will herald the end of our Western civilisation as well as Dutch culture.

I would like to round off my first-reading contribution with a personal appeal to the Prime Minister on behalf of a great many Dutch citizens: stop the Islamification of the Netherlands! Mr Balkenende, a historic task rests on your shoulders. Be courageous. Do what many Dutch citizens are screaming out for. Do what the country needs. Stop all immigration from Muslim countries, ban all building of new mosques, close all Islamic schools, ban burkas and the Koran. Expel all criminal Muslims from the country, including those Moroccan street terrorists that drive people mad.

Accept your responsibility! Stop Islamification!  Enough is enough, Mr Balkenende. Enough is enough.

  1. Dear Mr. Bostom,
    I live just a few miles from where Geert was born and brought up. He was bought up just too the North of me in Venlo in Limburg right on the German boarder. It is very Catholic and therefore very conservative. People are angry but they don’t show it. The Dutch don’t talk much unless they know you and trust you. I live in a small hamlet well into the country and the area around has not been culturally enhanced apart from the large towns Venlo and Roermond and here crime is going through the roof, especially Roermond. It is difficult to gage the mood of the people, but if I go into my local pub here in the hamlet and mention the word muslim or Islam I am bound to get a warm response. This is something that would not have happened a few years ago. The religious divide between the Catholics and the protestants was still in the 60s a very sensitive subject so people tended to hold there own council, don’t rock the boat and I think that this mind set is still one of the main reasons the Dutch are weary about religious debate, it has caused so much problems in the past they are frightened that these religious sores will be opened up in the future debate between Islam and Christianity. A few are aware that a clash is inevitable but the rest are trying to avoid having to confront the inevitable. They are certainly worried and feel that the Government should do something but they don’t know what. There is certainly support for Geert here in Limburg. Many are ashamed that that a Dutch parliamentary leader has to have an armed guard when he goes for a piss in the Houses of Parliament and cannot walk freely in the town of his birth because muslims want to kill him. I can only describe it as a growing sense of frustration and anger which when it explodes will have terrible consequences. Geert started off as a one man party when he left the VVD (Liberal Party) he has now 9 members in the Parliament and if there was an election now would get over 20, expect a hell of a lot more if there are a few out breaks of violence between now and the next election. The Dutch system is proportional representation and it is almost impossible to gain a majority in the Dutch parliament and all parliaments since the war have been coalitions. 9 members were not enough to prevent the formation of the present coalition. But if he gets well over the 20 member predicted by opinion polls, it will be almost impossible, if not impossible to form a government. This time it took several months of horse trading before they could form a government, next time it will take years. We will have to wait and see if the predicted crisis blows up over his film and the Muslims react violently. We have seen the Prime Minister doing the respect bit and the rest of his cabinet running around in damage limitation mode. The true Dutchman is not amused by these antics.
    I personally do not see any real problems although the Dutch economy is far more exposed than the Danish economy which has just come through the second Motoon confrontation a couple of weeks ago Islam is still too weak for a concerted attack on the West. Two years ago the Muslim world launched a premeditated attack on Denmark one of the smallest countries of the E.U. to try and hang it out to dry as an example to the rest of Europe what would happen to them if they didn’t toe the line. I think it was 13 muslim ambassadors lead by the Egyptian Ambassador demanded a meeting with the Danish Prime Minister and an apology. The Danish Prime Minister politely declined. When the dust settled the Danes counter attacked and the two muslim imams who went too the middle east and were instrumental in starting the crisis, one has now gone to that brothel in the sky and the other left Denmark for Gaza lamenting how unappreciated he was by the Danes. I don’t think the Danes shed many tears. This last crisis instigated by the Danes has had in fact had the opposite effect. The Muslim faith Society (Danish version of CAIR) has been back pedaling like hell. The rest of the muslim organizations have been distancing themselves from them as if they had the plague. Well you don’t get many brownie points when the Danish Prime Minister accused the leader of speaking with two tongues that the muslims should get an education and there are plenty of jobs at the moment. Literally translated stop lying get some qualifications and get a job, and stop living off the society. We have also seen the leaders of the left wing of the Danish political spectrum dishing it out. One told the muslims if they didn’t want to abide by the Danish laws to go to Hell and bugger off. I don’t mean politely, I mean literally . The Car-be-ques and the burning down of schools has really got the Danes irritated so there are plans afoot by certain political parties to get Blasphemy taken off the statue books and parents to be responsible for the Damage their Kids do and make them pay compensation. The Danes have lost there fear, once the Dutch do the same we will see a change in the mood of Europe. There is a slow grass roots movement over here that is not reported. Once the political parties realize that they can gain votes as the left in Denmark has seen, we will see a shift, Europe is not dead. By the way Andrew it was nice meeting you at the Dinner last year in the Flemish parliament. I am only sorry that I did not get to speak too you for more than a few minutes. You and Robert are always worth listening too.

    Deep Regards

    Yorkshire Miner

  2. BRAVO !!!

    SUPER !!!

  3. Yorkshire Miner’s comment is immensely significant and heartening to me. It means we in the West are not necessarily doomed. The general public is starting to get the message and is starting to fight back. Can we possibly get some of those common-sense citizens he describes to take over our colleges and universities, please?

    Thanks for the informative post on the situation in the Netherlands.

    The fact that Danish Muslims are back pedalling is no surprise. They are afterall doing what is necessary – to protect the ummah in Denmark. The same will happen in Holland or elsewhere – Muslims will simly lie low or become stridently nationlist.

    Let us consider a situation that all Muslims at present living in the West accepted the call to clean their communities of extremism. They even went further and made the changes in their teachings of the Koran and the jihad. Such an outcome would no doubt come as a relief to all. But I counter that all such changes were being done merely to protect the ummah while it grows at ever-increasing pace in the West. Once a near majority is achieved, that future generation of Muslims will simply revoke any changes and return to the traditions of the Koran. They will even praise this generation of Muslims for having done what was necessary to protect Islam.

    I’m sorry to say but there is no alternative but a separation from Islam.

  5. It was welcoming to read the comment by Yorkshire Miner that people in his part of the country are taking a stand for their country and their heritage.
    Just this past year I have been reading and hearing of the matters on which the Muslims here in the US are moving in(I see it as testing the waters just to see how far they can go). Lets see praying to allah, making comments in their language, etc., on a plane and then along with CAIR suing everyone who made a complaint against them. I would of done the same, what after 911 many people see the red flags. It is really disturbing, in the fact that what they are taught and want to impliment are so distructive. They now want to take my freedom away and are slowly wanting their Islamic ways brought to fruitation. As I have read of the changes in our Universities, special washing stalls and a number of other things, I could name several.
    I look forward to the release of Dutch MP Geert Wilders, 15 minute documentary on the Koran and Violence.
