Words of a French President and a Dutch Leader
-The Times (UK)
Today, French President Francois Hollande spoke to his nation about the Paris attacks. One thing he said was positive; he acknowledged that the attack on a kosher grocery was an act of anti-Semitism. But he also reverted back to his standard line that "the attacks had absolutely nothing to do with the Muslim religion." As far as I am concerned the French president is still standing on square one.
Meanwhile, another politician spoke. In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders, one of the world's most courageous people, a man who has to live his life under heavy security, said this:
Note that Wilders did not condemn all Muslims. He knows that would be wrong. However, he pin-pointed the problem and laid much of the blame on Europe's political leaders who allowed all this to happen-to build up over decades to the point that the very fabric of European society is now being torn apart by a force that has no regard for the culture of the countries where they have been allowed to settle.
It is now up to the Europeans to save their own societies and their own countries. Their current leaders and the hacks in the EU will not do it. Europeans must elect strong people like Geert Wilders and their parties to lead their governments. They cannot simply depend on the magnificent and professional work done these past few days by the French police and intelligence services. That only comes after the fact when innocent people are laying dead. We all know that more attacks are coming not only in France, but Europe, Canada, Australia and the US. We have to fight this evil.
This is war.
