Geert Wilders Is a Dutch politician and is the head of the Freedom Party in Holland. He has been on the forefront of the battle against the advancement of Islam in Europe. He has also been trying to warn us in North America so we don’t make the same mistakes that the European nations have made.
Those of you who follow Fortress of Faith know that I lived in Europe for nearly 30 years and I too have been trying to warn North America about the dangers of Islam and how Islam has been advancing in our part of the world. I don’t have a problem with Muslims. Muslims are people with souls and they need the truth of the Gospel just as others who are without Christ. They are the biggest victims of Islam. Like anyone else, Muslims who die without Christ, will suffer eternal punishment.
We are not a Muslim bashing ministry. Our goal is threefold. We are a warning ministry pointing out the dangers of allowing Islam to advance. We are an evangelistic ministry dedicated to reaching Muslims for Christ. The third aspect of our ministry is to bring revival to the churches in North America.
I would like to point out that the Shariah law practiced in the UK did not come by the hand of the terrorists. It was the “moderate” Muslims that brought it there. We need to understand that it is the “moderate” Muslims that will bring Shariah to North America if we don’t take steps to stop it.
Here are some of the remarks from Geert Wilders in a speech he gave a few years ago in New York.
I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing, the United States as the last bastion of Western civilization facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two the US will ask itself who lost Europe.
Imagine if what he said is actually true. What if, in the next generation or two, Europe becomes an Islamic state? Can you imagine what North America would look like as it tried to defend itself against the Islamic ideology? Do you realize the power that Europe has with its nuclear weapons? Do you understand the wealth these people would control? The broken ties between Europe and the US would have devastating effects on the rest of the world.
There are cities in Europe where one quarter of the populations are now Muslims. There are thousands of mosques throughout Europe and the congregations in the mosques are larger than those in the churches. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because because of Muslim sensitivity in these European countries. There are neighborhoods in France that are “no go” areas for women that are not wearing head scarves.
Let me explain how Europe became so overwhelmed with Muslims. It goes back to WWII. The infrastructure in Europe was destroyed. The manpower was greatly reduced due to the war. In order to rebuild, these countries had to open their doors to immigrants. France and Spain brought in Muslims from North Africa. Germany opened its doors to Muslims from Turkey, England brought in Muslims from Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. Because of this influx, Europeans were told to be tolerant and accepting of these Muslim. They were to become multicultural and multi-faith and just get along.
The Muslims population grew through procreation and more immigration. The average British family will only have 1.4 children, while a Muslim family will have 4.7 children. This means that the British population is in decline, but the Muslim population is increasing. The Muslim population will eventually dominate the British population. The largest Muslim population growth is in France, where the average Muslim family has 7.4 children.
I am not saying that we should take up arms against immigrants. I spent most of my life as an immigrant. Immigrants need to understand that while they are living in someone else’s country, they are guests. They are to assimilate into the culture of their host country. Muslims will not do this because their religion will not allow them to do so.
Europe is struggling with this problem. There was a time when they needed these immigrants, and they needed to be accepted. We are finding that Muslims have abused this opportunity.
Angela Merkle, the channeller in Germany said:
Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have utterly failed.
Another German politician said:
It was obvious that the immigrants from different cultures, like Turkey and Arab countries, all in all find it harder to integrate.
Why is this? It is because of their Muslim faith. Their Islamic ways, Shariah, would not allow them to take on Western cultural ideas.
We see the same thing happening in North America. Muslims come into our communities with their religion and their cultural ways and they are not interested in assimilating or accepting our ways.
To be fair, there are Muslims who are looking for a way to escape the hard lines of Islam. They are looking for liberty and freedoms.
There is a wonderful opportunity, while Muslims are living in Christian nations, to share our faith with them. Many Muslims have never been invited into a Christian home. No one has taken the time to answer their questions. Some of them are looking for a way to escape the oppression of Islam. They are enjoying the freedoms they are given here.
I want o look at some other things that Geert Wildere said. He quoted from Bernard Lewis, who is one of the foremost expert on Islam and the Middle East. He said the Muslims will have a majority in Europe by the end of this century. Geert said:
Now these are just numbers, and the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslims had a strong desire to assimilate.
As I said earlier, because they will not assimilate, and because they will not adapt to the country that they have made their adopted country, it is becoming a threat to these nations. It will become a threat to us in North America as well.
The Pew Research Center found that in France half the Muslims there see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. They also found that one third of the Muslims do not object to suicide attacks.
In England, the British Center for Social Cohesion, reports that one third of the British Muslim students are in favor of a world wide caliphate. This is what their religion teaches. If a good Muslim is going to follow the Qur’an, then his goal is to bring the world under an Islamic caliphate.
Geert said that the leaders in Holland are ready to give up. He said that one cabinet member suggested that they turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays. Another cabinet member suggested that they claim Islam as part of the Dutch culture. The Attorney General was willing to accept Shariah in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.
These things should be of great concern to us. We should learn from what is happening in Europe.
