Mobilizing for Wilders
There is, as you know, an active and growing mobilization in favor of Geert Wilders. Once again here is the URL for the petition which now has over 24,000 signatures.
Riposte Laïque has translated the petition into French:
French readers who linger a while at Riposte Laïque may want to read the current editorial by Cyrano that recapitulates the long list of those who have been persecuted or prosecuted because they dared to speak out against Islam. These are the famous names. The names that made it to the headlines of Le Figaro. We will never know all of the names of the millions of people who, through the centuries, have been terrorized, assaulted, tortured, exiled and murdered as a result of their refusal to become Muslim, or their willingness to fight rather than submit, or their outspoken criticism of the ideology that is both a vindictive religion and a relentless conqueror of "infidel" nations.
In the comment section to my recent post on The Lambeth Walk, a reader has left a sample letter to Ernst Hirsch Ballin, the Dutch Minister of Justice, which you can copy or replace with a letter of your own. Here is the opening paragraph:
Dear Mr Ballin
Amsterdam Court of Appeal vs. Mr Geert Wilders
As you now seek to jail Mr Geert Wilders on charges of discrimination and hate speech I wonder if you will also seek to ban the Qur'an that has page upon page of discrimination and hate speech, calling for death and punishment for a vast range of activities which are perfectly legal in The Netherlands - such as for not being Muslim, particularly for being Jewish, for being an apostate or an adulteress or for a selection of other actions or beliefs that would hardly rank as indiscretions or misdemeanours by any non-Qur'anic terms of reference? (...)
Another reader (or the same one, since they are both "anonymous"), has provided a link to a Free Geert banner for your website (or maybe you can print it out and enlarge it ):
There is more commentary on Wilders at The Lambeth Walk, and Robert Spencer penned this article for Front Page Magazine two days ago. Do a Google and you'll find articles all over the web.
See my next post for the SITA action being launched to free Wilders.
