Geert Wilders: "If Something is True, How Can It Be Illegal?"

Geert Wilders, the great Dutch freedom fighter, legislator, and opponent of the Islamization of Europe, has been put on trial in Amsterdam by leftist, European ideologues for standing bravely and heroically against the Islamization of his country and, indeed, that of all the West.

Wilders has always made clear that he has no objection to Muslims, but rather to a radical Islamist ideology that advocates violence, intimidates all opposition, and seeks to impose Sharia Law on Western nations.

The political show trial to which he is being subjected by suicidal, European socialists is only beginning, but Wilders has given an eloquent and historic opening speech reminding his countrymen that:
"of all our attainments, freedom is the most precious and most vulnerable. It is what people have dedicated their lives to and what people have given their lives for. Our freedom in this country is the fruit of centuries."
Invoking Thomas Jefferson, Wilders speech is a clarion call for the remnants of Christian civilization to wake up before it is too late. The barbarians are inside the walls.

Hat Tip to Gates of Vienna for the following video and their preeminent reporting on this issue.

The Counterjihad Calendar for 2008

The preeminent counterjihad website, Gates of Vienna, has produced a beautiful calendar "that displays solidarity with twelve countries that are resisting Islamization: France, Denmark, Germany, India, Sweden, Italy, United States, Greece, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Australia, and Spain."

Each month features counterjihad websites in the respective countries, and Sunlit Uplands is humbled and grateful to be included among the American websites featured in the month of July. You can see an enlarged copy of the image above by clicking on it.

You can buy The Counterjihad Calendar for 2008 at the Gates of Vienna
Café Press store, or go straight to the calendar page at this link. Your purchase will support the extraordinary work Gates of Vienna does to inform the world about every facet of the struggle between western civilization and Islam.

The purpose of the calendar is twofold:
1. To enhance a sense of community among the inhabitants of the countries of the West. We can show solidarity with one another even as we remain nationalists within our own countries. The West doesn’t require an artificial and corrupt empire like the EU or the UN to maintain its collective identity. There is something that binds us together, a common heritage that enables us to resist Islamization.

2. To facilitate a greater awareness of the struggle we are all facing and how it is approached in different countries, by listing counterjihad blogs and websites on the sidebar for each country. Sites outside of the Anglosphere often post at least some of their articles in English, and, if they don’t, machine translation is available to help.
With faith, solidarity, prayer and perseverance, the hateful totalitarianism and barbarism of the Islamists can be resisted and overcome. It is an epic struggle which is likely to consume the lifetime of all those living and these twelve nations and more, but one that must be waged and won. For as Churchill said of another world conflict between light and darkness, freedom and slavery, the goal must be:

Victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

Many, many thanks to Gates of Vienna for this superb calendar and for their valiant work in the struggle.

Protestors and Clergy: "Stop Islamization of Europe"

It is encouraging to see the beginnings of resistance to the Islamization of Europe. While the Mayor of Brussels denied permits to the Islamic resistance network, Stop the Islamization of Europe (SIOE), for a rally to commemorate the atrocities of September 11, 2001, and to call attention to the growing threat to freedom and democracy posed by Europe's Muslim community, several hundred members of SIOE showed up anyway. They were met with more than a hundred police with dogs and water cannons. According to the Gates of Vienna website, approximately 30 protesters were arrested. The group plans to hold its next protest in Marseille on a date yet to be determined.

In a Mass also commemorating September 11, that was attended by Polish government officials, a prominent Polish bishop echoed earlier comments by several Vatican officials about the dangers posed by Europe's rapidly growing Muslim population. Bishop Tadeusz Ploski, head of the Polish military chaplaincy, called for a defense of Christian culture and warned against an emerging "Eurabia."

Gates of Vienna: "There Is No Moderate Islam"

“There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” Who said that?

Robert Spencer? Serge Trifkovic? Fjordman? Bat Ye’or?

No, the Prime Minister of Turkey said it, on Turkish television.
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the leader of Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi (AKP, or Justice and Development Party), and has been Prime Minister since 2003. His party is an Islamic party, but is considered “moderate” as such things go, at least by the wishful-thinking dhimmi politicians and media pundits of the West.

Apparently, however, he’s sick of the “moderate” label being bandied about. He’d like to remind everybody that, just as there is only one Allah, there is only one Islam. None of this “moderate” crap for him!- - - - - - - - -This story has been around for a couple of weeks, but I only just found out about it. According to MEMRI’s Turkish Media blog:

Speaking at Kanal D TV’s Arena program, PM Erdoğan commented on the term “moderate Islam”, often used in the West to describe AKP and said, ‘These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”Source: Milliyet, Turkey, August 21, 2007
