Speech of Geert Wilders at the resumption of his trial in Amsterdam today

Courtesy of Winds of Jihad.

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. Everywhere the foundation of the West is under attack.

All over Europe the elites are acting as the protectors of an ideology that has been bent on destroying us since fourteenth centuries. An ideology that has sprung from the desert and that can produce only deserts because it does not give people freedom. The Islamic Mozart, the Islamic Gerard Reve [a Dutch author], the Islamic Bill Gates; they do not exist because without freedom there is no creativity. The ideology of Islam is especially noted for killing and oppression and can only produce societies that are backward and impoverished. Surprisingly, the elites do not want to hear any criticism of this ideology.

My trial is not an isolated incident. Only fools believe it is. All over Europe multicultural elites are waging total war against their populations. Their goal is to continue the strategy of mass-immigration, which will ultimately result in an islamic Europe – a Europe without freedom: Eurabia.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom loving citizens who criticize islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Everywhere the Orwellian thought police are at work, on the lookout for thought crimes everywhere, casting the populace back within the confines where it is allowed to think.

This trial is not about me. It is about something much greater. Freedom of speech is not the property of those who happen to belong to the elites of a country. It is an inalienable right, the birthright of our people. For centuries battles have been fought for it, and now it is being sacrificed to please a totalitarian ideology.

Future generations will look back at this trial and wonder who was right. Who defended freedom and who wanted to get rid of it.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Our freedom is being restricted everywhere, so I repeat what I said here last year:

It is not only the privilege, but also the duty of free people – and hence also my duty as a member of the Dutch Parliament – to speak out against any ideology that threatens freedom. Hence it is a right and a duty to speak the truth about the evil ideology that is called islam. I hope that freedom of speech will emerge triumphant from this trial. I hope not only that I shall be acquitted, but especially that freedom of speech will continue to exist in the Netherlands and in Europe.

You’ve seen me say it before here, and I’ll say it again.   Islam is truly evil in every sense of the word.  It has NO redeeming features.   As taught by the Koran, it is is anti-freedom, anti-life, anti-everything good.   It is the polar opposite to the principals of Judeo-Christianity our western societies were originally based upon, which is why there cannot be a meeting of minds between Islam and the west.  It is also why so many in the West find it so hard to grasp the depth of hatred Islam has for Jews, Christianity and the West in general.   Out of those principals of Judeo Christianity came freedom of speech, freedom of association, and most everything that makes life worth living.

Mr Wilders is a brave man and I wish him all the best.   I hope reason will prevail on his behalf in this kangaroo court, but I’m not holding my breath.   There is not much in the way of critical thinking or common-sense going on in systems that are under the sway of political correctness and multiculturalism.

I think Britain is pretty well as they say ‘Stick a fork in them – they’re done.There’s still people there fighting the good fight, but on the whole the country has sunk into dhimmitude.   The way people here in Australia are thinking as far as the powers that be are concerned, we’re not going to be far behind if we don’t wake up.   The US is also well on the way to dhimmitude as well.   What takes my breath away is the speed with which we’ve sunken to this level.   From mainly the 1960’s till now is when it’s the most obvious, but the birth of Israel as a nation is what can be pointed to as the true trigger point, and it was a trigger point pointed to prophetically by Jesus Himself.

In the end, all is happening just a prophesied in the Bible, but still we must warn where people will listen.

Islamophobic Yodeling

Islamophobic Yodeling

Austrian “hate speech” prosecutors are very busy these days. In addition to going after Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff for “prejudicial incitement,” i.e., criticizing Islam and Sharia laws at a seminar, the Austrians found the time to crack down on yet another “Islamophobic” miscreant, a 63 year old Austrian retiree.

“Helmut G. was busy on Friday afternoon, mowing his grass. ‘And because I was just in such a good mood, I yodeled along with it and sang a few songs,’ says the retiree, speaking to the Styrian Crown. That was not all right with his neighbors — believing Muslims. They had gathered in their house at prayer hour, which was also broadcast into their yard by loudspeaker… Consequently, several of them felt disturbed in their religious exercises by the grass-mowing 63-year old — and promptly reported him to the police. ‘In the statement it said that my yodeling sounded like the call of the muezzin,’ Helmut G. shook his head, bewildered. ‘It was definitely not my intention to imitate him,’ the Graz native assures us. The court did not believe him and sentenced him to a fat fine.”

In a way, I am glad that the Austrians have helped to flesh out further the debate regarding Islam and Islamism. As you know, LP works to protect the right to comment on radical Islam, terrorism and related issues without fear of legal retaliation. It is often hard to discuss such politically charged topics without knowing exactly what the rules of the debate are. At the very least, we need to determine how far we can go before violating them and/or if we are going to be violating them. So, it is probably a good thing that in the past two decades, in a piecemeal, case-by-case fashion, the elites of the European nations – and to a lesser extent, the US – have been steadily compiling and revealing the rules of discussion regarding Islam, radical Islam, and Islamist terrorism to educate ordinary folks like you and me. These rules apparently include the following:

* Thou shalt not accurately describe Sharia law. See Geert Wilders. See Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.
* Thou shalt not criticize any Islamic doctrines. See Geert Wilders. See Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.
* Thou shalt not report on and/or criticize the funding of terror by Islamists. See Rachel Ehrenfield.
* Thou shalt not disparage – or even depict – the Islamic Prophet Muhammed. See the Jyllands-Posten Danish Cartoons. See South Park.
* Thou shalt not criticize the appropriateness of building any mosque, anywhere. See the Ground Zero Mosque debate.
* Thou shalt not admit to any politically incorrect thought(s) about Muslims, even if you immediately disavow it (them) as “irrational” and denounce it (them) on air. See Juan Williams.

Violating any of these rules – in the US and in Europe – is, according to the elites, a clear sign of “Islamophobia.” Violating any of these rules – in Europe alone – is also a sign of criminality.

So, thanks to the Austrians, we now know that we should add “thou shalt not yodel along with the call of the muezzin” as another rule to be followed. And I, for one, am thankful for this addition. Who knew that “Islamophobic Yodeling” was a problem?

No matter where I look in the news (main stream) I see so much dhimmitude.

Robert Spencer defined it best in my opinion:
Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, “protected” or “guilty” people, are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur’an’s command that they “feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the legal superstructure that global jihadists are laboring through violence to restore everywhere in the Islamic world, and wish ultimately to impose on the entire human race.

Is that not a perfect description of what so many of our “betters” (in govt, local govt, lawmakers and on and on) are doing in relation to Islam. Muslims in all our western countries are demanding “rights” (and getting them) and tolerance and in return we the westerners are receiving nothing but contempt. Islam has learned very quickly how to use our own laws against us.

I see so many putting their heads in the sand where Islam is concerned. They have made their aim very clear – a World Caliphate. If we in the west continue to deny reality we will be overrun by Islam in their stealth jihad against us. They will outbreed us, they will change our laws, they will intimidate and when those things don’t work will use direct force (violent protests and terrorism) Make no mistake, we are already in a war with them. Islam knows it, but the west denies it and it will be the death of the west if we don’t wake up.

Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty

Vodpod videos no longer available.

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change skeptic, gave a presentation at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. In this 4 minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty, scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming.

We know why the global warming crowd has been pushing this whole screed on us.

It has been and is about global control.

You in the US are about to lose your country to tyranny, and it is at a point where I don’t think it’s possible to stop it – too many people are asleep to what is happening.  I’m often sad at seeing what is happening.

The very fact Obama was able to get into power is a pretty good indication of the spiritual condition of America.   Don’t get me wrong – this is not an anti America rant.   I love the American that was, and I have many good friends among you – mainly in the Bible belt, naturally.  Heh.

Indeed, it may be in God’s purpose that it not be stopped.   There has to be a point of God’s judgment, both in the US and in all western countries – we have all to a larger or smaller degree turned our backs on the Lord.


“This isn’t my country anymore.” by Heidi.

Heidi has written an excellent article on the value of family and each individual on her ‘Pebblechaser’ blog.

An excerpt:

The point is this: It is not within my power to determine the quality or effect of the life of a person. The soul shines through regardless of length or our ridiculous notions of quality. God’s breath in each person as their days are meted out according to His schedule. Not mine. Never mine.

Life is precious. All of it, from the beginning to the end. It is a circle that must be seen. Must be protected. Must be insured. So we don’t forget where we come from and where we are headed.

Euthanasia is a frightful and dreadful concept that slaughters the weak. It is the evil twin of abortion and a perversion of compassion at such a degree it makes me ill. Both are concepts supported in large by the young, healthy and self-absorbed and ones by which our bloated, decrepit and vile society will be judged.

But that’s not the country I grew up believing in. That isn’t the society I was excited to bring my sons into not all that long ago.

I look at the political landscape, the talking heads, the frantic screams from both sides and I truly don’t know where we, as a country, are headed. But I know this.

It doesn’t feel like my country any more.

She writes so well and touchingly of the value of each person in a family, and I have no doubt that most of my readers will find themselves in complete agreement.

Each person’s life has intrinsic value, which makes what Obama and his administration are attempting to do so terribly, terribly evil.   I pray and hope they will not succeed.

And it’s happening here in Australia, too.  Not as fast, but all the signs are evident.   The dumbing down of our society, the rampant socialism in our education system, and oh! that great destroyer of our society – political correctness.    Australia is no longer the land I once knew, either.

Object Lesson

From Tim Birdnow’s blog “Birdblog” comes this great little illustration.

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.


The professor then said, “OK,  we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.


All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.


After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.   The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.


As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.  The second test average was a D!   No one was happy.


When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering,  blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.


All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.


Could not be any simpler than that.

Indeed.

Obama Slyly Maneuvers for Socialism

From an article at Newsmax

(Hat tip to Tim Birdnow at Birdblog for this lead.)

President Obama showed his hand this week when The New York Times wrote that he is considering converting the stock the government owns in our country’s banks from preferred stock, which it now holds, to common stock.

This seemingly insignificant change is momentous. It means that the federal government will control all of the major banks and financial institutions in the nation. It means socialism.

The Times dutifully dressed up the Obama plan as a way to avoid asking Congress for more money for failing banks. But the implications of the proposal are obvious to anyone who cares to look.

So, if Obama gets away with this, it will mean that at a stroke of the pen the USA will have become a socialist country – no longer a democracy or republic as your founders envisioned it.

I’ve been watching since Obama has become President and have been appalled at just swiftly the USA is heading towards becoming a tyranny.  It seems to me from reading around the blogs and the forums I visit that quite a few people are aware of whats happening but feel powerless to do anything about it.   But we should, by prayer and actions that speak from repentance towards God.   Most other actions done apart from that may be good from a purely human point of view but are still just a band aid without that spiritual dimension added.   I mean, the whole reason your country, and the UK, and us here in Australia (all in the same sinking boat) are in such trouble is because we turned away from God in the first place.  And to add to our judgement all our administrations are turning more and more against Israel, which is a sure road to full judgement from God.  We need to be active in whatever way we can that may delay God’s judgement against us all, and in the end only repentance can do that.

The Call to Dunkirk

This is a video every thinking parent needs to see.

Today’s government schools are godless in every way.    There is no possible way that any Christian parent can counter the indoctrination their children receive in these social engineering centres.  On school days these people spend more or equal time with the kiddies as the parents do.

“Hymn to Hitler”, By Lori Kalner

As the US elections are so close, I thought this might be appropriate.   I saw it on one of my favourite forums.   Thanks Marlene.

An old German woman’s perspective on Obama.

In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression. Money was worth nothing. In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s, which we have
read about in Thoene’s Shiloh books.

In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to
power by promising “Change” He blamed the “Zionists” around the world for all
our problems. He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused
every problem we had. He promised when he was leader, the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished. The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth. So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote. A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader. Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him. Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would.

The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs
in praise of Hitler. This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement. It
began with praise of the Fuhrer’s programs on the lips of innocent children.
Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the school rooms
and in the play yard. Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as
they walked home from school. My brother came home and told Papa what was
happening at school. The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was
coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust. I will never
forget my father’s face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best propaganda of the
Nazis was song on the lips of little children. That evening before he said
grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands upon the heads of my brothers and
me and prayed the Living Word upon us from Jeremiah 1:4-5.

‘Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying,
“Before I formed you in the
womb I knew you,
and before you were born
I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to
The nations.”

Soon the children’s songs praising the Fuhrer were heard
everywhere on the streets and over the radio. “With our Fuhrer to lead us, we
can do it! We can change the world!” Soon after that, Papa, a pastor, was turned
away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals. The people he had come to
bring comfort of God’s Word, were “no longer there.” Where had they vanished to
while under nationalized health care? It became an open secret. The elderly and
sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as “mercy killing” became the
policy. Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were
euthanized. People whispered, “Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of
misery. They are no longer suffering. And, of course, their death is better for
the treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a
burden.” And so murder was called mercy.

The government took over private business. Industry and
health care were “nationalized.” (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The
businesses of all Jews were seized. (Perhaps you remember our story in Berlin on
Krystalnacht in the book Munich Signature)

The world and God’s word were turned upside down. Hitler
promised the people economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer’s very
ancient Delusion leading to Destruction. What began with the propaganda of
children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children. The
reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present generation
cannot imagine it. Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a book or show in
a black and white news reel.

When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things,
she wept and said she could not bear to write them. Perhaps one day she will,
but I asked her, “who could bear to read our suffering?” Yet with my last
breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in the name of the Lord, Unless your
course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the
Lord, there are new horrors yet to come.

I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American
children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who
claims he is the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says
about abortion and the “mercy killing” of tiny babies who are not wanted.

There are so few of us left to warn you. I have heard that
there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians.
Where are your voices? Where is your outrage? Where is passion and your vote?
Do you vote based on an abortionist’s empty promises and economics? Or do you
vote according to the Bible? Thus says the Lord about every living child still
in the womb.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you
were born I consecrated you.”

I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my
youth. I see them again now. Christians! Unless you stand up now, you will lose
your freedom of religion. In America priests and preachers have already lost
their freedom to speak openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political
candidates. They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to
the precepts of scripture! American law forbids this freedom of speech to
conservative pastors or they will lose their “tax exempt” status. And yet I
have heard the words of Obama’s pastor Damning America! I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small towns because you “Cling to your religion.” But I am a woman whose name is unknown. My life is recorded as a work of fiction. I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the pages of a book. (Though the Zion Covenant books are mocked and condemned by the Left in America.) I am an old woman and will soon go to be with my Lord. I have no fear for myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble. I tremble at the hymns to a political leader which your children will sing at school. (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is against the law in public school!)

Your vote must put a stop to what will come upon America if Barrack Obama is elected. I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your children and your grandchildren. Do not be deceived. The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up!

“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth,’ for to all whom I send
you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them for I am with you, declares the Lord!”

I am in Prayer for you, and for the Church!
Spoken to you in the authority of Jesus the Christ,
the Name Above All Names.

Lori Kalner

Update:   Mon 24/11/08

I’m quite surprised at how many comments this post has generated.   Unfortuately I haven’t had a chance to do any blogging recently, though I do keep an eye on comments via RSS.   The main bone of contention I’ve seen in here is some people don’t like seeing their new ‘god’ being compared to Hitler.   Nobody has said Obama is Hitler, just that there are some very unsettling similarities in the methods used by Obama.  One can certainly expect Lori Kalner to be very unsettled by what she sees happening, as any one would who lived through the terrible Nazi years.

As for whether Lori is a real person, I’ve done research on the net and concluded she’s quite real, and no I don’t intend to enumerate everything.   Most of my readers are intelligent people who are quite capable of using search engines and research tools, coming to their own conclusions if they’re undecided about it, while those who’ve already made up their minds will not bother.   I know Snopes says some of her stuff is supposedly a hoax, but I’m not putting too much faith in that since they started leaning strongly to the left.

I could go into a lot more about this but don’t have the time right now.   I just thought I should post at least something so it wouldn’t appear I’m totally ignoring this.

SAS soldiers in debt after fighting Taliban

ELITE SAS soldiers who fought Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan have been hit with a $30,000 pay debt, forcing their families below the poverty line.

Some married diggers with children are being forced to live on $250 a fortnight as they struggle to repay tax-free allowances, with after-tax income docked from their pay without consultation, The Australian reports.

I can’t possibly express just how furious this makes me.   These guys have risked life and limb to defend freedom and they end up getting treated like crap by their own country!    This is why I hate bureaucracy in all it’s forms – heartless and soulless as it is.   The rules and guidelines must be followed at all costs, with no thought of consequences for those it affects.  Bah, I hope these sons of bitches get dumped on by the south end of a north bound camel.   There is absolutely no excuse for treating them like this – none.

It appears there will be an inquiry into this mess, but it should never have happened in the first place.   Why is it that those that give service for their country are often the ones who get mistreated the most.

The Drumbeat

By William Staneski

What a great piece this is, forcefully stating the forces of unGodliness arrayed against the Judeo/Christian based societies of the west.   Saw it at Ace’s place.

Excerpts.\:

The drumbeat. It’s always there. Day and night. Rain or shine. Winter or Summer. Sunday or Monday. It comes at you from every direction. It comes over the TV, the radio, at work, at school, in music, in the newspapers, from the politicians, in conversation with others, even in church. It wears you down. It robs you of the will to resist its message. Even short-lived victories, which stop it briefly, leave you with the knowledge that it will return; each minor victory bound to be lost to the redoubled efforts of this patient and persistent force. You can’t escape it. It never stops. It never gives up. It never ends. It rains upon you from every possible angle, from every possible source.


It’s the drumbeat of the left. It is political, philosophical, theological, and social. It pervades every activity. It is post-structural, post-modern, post-everything in the parlance of the day. It is tolerant, diverse, non-judgmental, non-discriminatory, egalitarian, politically correct, multicultural, globalist, and collectivist. It insists that there are no rights and wrongs, no moral absolutes. It turns everything upside down in its looking glass world. It denies the correctness of all that produced what our culture revered before the deconstruction of the world in accordance with the tenets of cultural Marxism.

The cultural Marxists convince us that the truth is that there is no truth. And even though this unresolvable paradox lies at the very center of all this, the constant drumbeat keeps the masses in line, anesthetized enough to not make an issue of it. Fed a constant diet of sex, drugs, poisonous pop culture, materialistic trinkets, and unkeepable promises of security provided by huge leftist government, ever more globalist in nature, the masses are diverted from realizing, as they are told there is no truth, that this claim itself is subject to the same test. It is logically impossible for the leftist drumbeat to be true by its own axioms.

If you believe that all this is a paranoid overreaction, you have plenty of company. Those of us who can still see the water and hear the drumbeat are subject to attempts to make us sound evil and foolish. To believe in traditional Western cultural values, American Exceptionalism, God, and moral truth is to be branded as old fashioned and foolish, even by the best assessments of those who have bought into the cultural Marxist’s message. And by the worst of them, we are branded as stupid and evil, and in need of being destroyed.

Read the whole thing.  A great piece, and an accurate summation of where our societies are headed.
