An anti-immigrant politician is making a meteoric rise with his call on the Dutch to stop Islam taking over Europe

Bruno Waterfield:

Geert Wilders, the 43-year-old leader of the Freedom Party, is convinced that governments are being forced to accommodate a 'tsunami of Islamisation' that is fundamentally incompatible with European social values.

"Islam itself is the problem. Islam is a violent religion," he told The Daily Telegraph. "The Prophet Mohammed was a violent man. The Koran is mostly a violent book. We should invest in Muslim people but they have to first get rid of half the Koran and half of their beliefs," he said.

The Freedom Party has jumped from six to 10 per cent in opinion polls since November. His passionate campaign for a ban on the Islamic veil, or burqa, in public places is gaining such momentum that the country's new coalition government could be forced to introduce the ban it does not support.

On the burqa, Mr Wilders is adamant: "It is a medieval token of a barbaric time, of how not to treat women, even if they want to wear it themselves," he argues.

Allowing Muslims to wear the burqa in the Netherlands, or to have segregated swimming sessions so as not to offend religious sensitivities, amounts to "religious apartheid" he says.

The new government coalition of mainstream centre right and left political parties had planned to ditch a decision by the previous government to ban the burqa in the Netherlands which now has a population of one million Muslims, six per cent of the total population. But, Mr Wilders crows, weekend opinion polls show 66 per cent of Dutch citizens support a ban.

The minority opposition leader who has won two previous votes for a ban on the burqa is convinced that support will be there for new legislation he will table in the spring as the Dutch become increasingly concerned over Muslim separatism.

Wilders is convinced there is growing support for his views across Europe but its political leaders, particularly in Britain, are too obsessed with being politically correct.

"There is almost no country more politically correct than the UK. Look at the terrible things that happened in London after Madrid, you have more reason than most to make this debate transparent and public," he said.

Mr Wilders split from the Dutch liberals in September 2004 over their support for EU membership for Turkey.

Two months later he was living in fear after police arrested suspected terrorists, armed with grenades, accused of planning to kill him. The Dutch politician says he and his wife have received more than 600 death threats.

Mr Wilders, who is always surrounded by plain clothes police guards, said: "I lost my freedom and privacy because of my opposition to Islam."

Europe's tolerance finds its limit: Death of multiculturalism

Why does he need guards? Is he in some kind of danger? From who? Can anyone tell me who? Is is Christians, Jews, Hindus or Wotanists or Nazis (after all Holland is close to Germany)? It wouldn't be muslims would it? I had thought all along islam was a religion of peace and tolerance. "Arrested suspected terrorists..." They must have been Buddhists. Good luck to him, but I bet the muslims will get to him too. Too bad, he is right about islam. That is why he has to die.

The really sad thing is that so few European politicians have the guts of Geert Wilders. I'm pretty sure that he says the things that they really think but are too cowardly to say for fear of Muslim violence.

Like I always say, it is too bad the OAS isn't around any more. Those guys didn't take any shit, no way, no how. A real tough crew. Maybe these softy Western Europeans could hire some Serbian Chetniks. Thos guys could use the work and I am sure they would be happy for it.

I don't think any Serbian would come to the aid of Western Europe since Western Europe was (foolishly) on the side of the Bosnian Muslims.

You are probably right Paul. They wouldn't help us either. We stupidly bombed them and then helped the Bosnian and Albanian muslims set up organized crime syndicates and islamic centers through opur stupid charity. Christ, what a waste. Then again one could hope that maybe if some European nation went to them and apologized and sincerely asked for help, the Serbs might lend a hand. You never know. They have invaluble military skills, as do the Croatians, especially in urban combat, counterinsurgency stuff, torture, etc...They are hardened fighters. I'd want them on my team. One can hope.
