Geert Wilders Statement on Norway

Hat tip to Gates of Vienna

The below statement comes from Dutch politician Geert Wilders concerning the terrorist attack in Norway. I got it off Gates of Vienna. I think it is important to post.

Statement of Geert Wilders concerning the massacre in Norway

"The brutal murder of dozens of innocent Norwegian civilians several days ago has shocked the Freedom Party (Dutch PVV). We mourn and stand by the Norwegian people who suffer from a massive blow.

The manifesto of the perpetrator makes clear that this is a madman. He wants to work with Al Qaeda (which he cherishes great admiration for), craves the bombing of cities, dreams of knights that surgically mutilate themselves, and wants to meet his hero Karadzic.

Breivik also refers to the Netherlands. That the fight against Islam is violently abused by a psychopath is disgusting and a slap in the face of the global anti-Islamic movement. It fills me with disgust that the perpetrator refers to the PVV and me in his manifesto.

Neither PVV nor I are responsible for a lone idiot who twisted and violently abused the freedom-loving anti-Islamization ideals, no matter how much some people would like that. We are democrats at heart. The Freedom Party has never, ever called for violence and will never do. We believe in the power of the ballot box and the wisdom of the voter. Not bombs and guns.

We fight for a democratic and nonviolent means against the further Islamisation of society and will continue to do so. The preservation of our freedom and security is our only goal."

— Geert Wilders

Well stated, Mr Wilders.

For Wilders its not bad, and he may well be sincere. But we must remember that at one time, Hitler considered sending the Jews to Madagascar.

Muslim carries out horrific terrorist attack: indicative of the entire Muslim community and symptomatic of the religion itself.

Right-wing, white Christian carries out horrific terrorist attack: just a lone madman.

Duly noted.

I surmise that Breivik was typical of most Europeans- secularized and Christian in name only. If you wait another 20 years, you may see another such attack. To see the next jihadist massacre, you need wait only a few days.

How many people do you see cheering and supporting Breivik? How many nation-states give support to Breivik? How many Christian clerics or any other religion- exhort their followers to go out and kill others?

Do the math.

And if the queen had balls, she would be the king.

But she would not be the queen, which removes an essential element from your premise.
