Netherlands: Geert Wilders to PM Rutte: You have imported a monster called Islam into our country! (VIDEO)
“So it’s not just a few rotten apples who make other Muslims look bad...This is large majority of 700,000 [out of 900,000] who reject our free society.” said Wilders
Geert Wilders, the leader of the populist Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands, slammed liberal Prime Minister Rutte during a recent debate over freedom of expression in the Dutch parliament, saying that his pro-mass migration policies have allowed for the importation of a “monster called Islam into our country.”
The words from parliamentary leader of PVV in the Dutch House of Representatives come weeks after the spate of deadly Islamic terror attacks in Austria and France, including the beheading of Samuel Paty — a French history teacher who showed a picture of the Islamic prophet Muhammad during a lesson on freedom of expression in his class.
Before addressing Dutch prime minister directly, Wilders opened up the debate by recounting the Islamic attacks and threats that have occurred in recent weeks. The right-wing populist leader also commented on Amsterdam imam Yassin Elforkani, who late last month called on Dutch lawmakers to adopt legislation that would criminalize any insult aimed at the Islamic prophet.
Imam Ismail Abou Soumayyah, a known Salafist extremist of the Quba mosque in The Hague, recently launched a petition which calls on the Dutch government to adopt Sharia blasphemy laws. The petition has reached well over the 40,000 signatures required which can, in theory, force a debate in the House of Representatives.
During his address, Wilders refuted claims often parroted by liberal politicians like Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, that only a small minority of Muslim immigrants in the Netherlands and Europe support terrorism and reject secular democracy.
“So it’s not just a few rotten apples who make other Muslims look bad,” Wilders began. “I say to the prime minister, stop pushing this nonsense fairy tale. This is large majority of 700,000 [out of 900,000] who reject our free society.”
