Excerpt from Geert Wilders’ speech in Australia

“This brings me to the second major topic of my speech. The nature of Islam.

Is it not strange that we, who are not Muslims, are punished by Islam for breaking Islamic rules? Religious rules do not apply to people who do not belong to a specific religion, do they? Indeed, a religion — every religion — should be voluntary. Yet, Islam imposes its rules on everyone.

Why does sharia law alter our Western secular legal system in such a dramatic fashion? The answer is that rather than a religion, Islam is a totalitarian political ideology which aims to impose its legal system on the whole society.

Islam is an ideology because it is political rather than religious: Islam is an ideology because it aims for an Islamic state and wants to impose Islamic Sharia law on all of us.

Islam is totalitarian because it is not voluntary. It orders that people who leave Islam must be killed.

Contrary to all the other religions — real religions — Islam also lays obligations on non-members.

Your fellow Australian, the theologian Mark Durie has said — I quote: “Islam classically demands a political realization, and specifically one in which Islam rules over all other religions, ideologies and competing political visions. Islam is not unique in having a political vision or speaking to politics, but it is unique in demanding that it alone must rule the political sphere.” — end of quote.

We can see what Islam has in store for us if we watch the fate of the Christians in the Islamic world, such as the Copts in Egypt, the Maronites in Lebanon, the Assyrians in Iraq, and Christians anywhere in the Islamic and Arab world. The cause of their suffering is Islam. Indeed, the only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe to be Christians is Israel. Israel is also the only democracy in the Middle East, a beacon of light in an area of total darkness. We should all support Israel.

My friends, I always make a distinction between Muslims and Islam. Most Muslims are moderate, but the ideology of Islam is dangerous. The moderates are the captives of a totalitarian system. If only they could liberate themselves from the Islamic culture of fatalism and apathy, then the most beautiful things could happen to them and the whole world.”

    If Gert Wilders’ came to this great democracy of Canada (sarc) he would now be arrested for saying that, under the Harpercrite party policy of protecting religious freedom I.E. Islam.

    Pissedoff, please provide some evidence to back up your claim. I was not and am not in favour of this latest government creation, only because government needs to decrease in size not increase. The same function could have been carried out by the existing bureaucracy. Furthermore we need to protect religious freedom at home before we go abroad to do so, and our HRCs are famous to attacking Christians.

    What would be very possible however is that Gert Wilders would be stopped from entering Canada in the first place.

      Maybe if Harper had not announced this in a mosque. So what is the difference arrested or not allowed to enter? Still suppression of free speech in a so called democracy.
