Wilders Warned He May Have to Leave

DUTCH NEWS: MP Geert Wilders has been told he may have to leave the Netherlands temporarily when his short firm over the Koran is completed, the anti-Islam campaigner says in an article he has written in Wednesday's Volkskrant.

Wilders says the warning came from the government's terrorism tzar Tjibbe Joustra.

The film was due to be ready for screening at the end of this month but has been delayed for several weeks, says Wilders. [Source: Wilders warned he may have to leave]

This is the comment I have left with the newspaper. It will be interesting to see if it gets published. Is freedom of speech still alive and kicking?
Geert Wilders is a courageous politician in a sea of craven fools!

What he is stating is so obviously correct; yet most of the other Dutch politicians are afraid of telling the people that he is right.

A politician is a public servant: He is elected into office in order to serve the best interests of the people. He believes - rightly in my view - that the Netherlands and Europe is under threat from Islam. It is therefore his duty to inform the vast majority of people who have far less understanding of the problem than he.

As has been written in the UK's 'Daily Telegraph', Holland is governed by people who are fearful of Islam. It would have been more accurate to have stated that ALL Western nations are being governed by people who are fearful of Islam! For all Western governments surely are.

I applaud the courage of Geert Wilders! We need more politicians like him. Would that there were many, many more. Then, perhaps, the West would have a better chance of survival. - ©Mark
