Geert Wilders steps up anti-Islam rhetoric

1 April 2011 General 6 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

Geert Wilders has stepped up his anti-Islam rhetoric by describing the Prophet Mohammed as an “insane, paedophile, rapist murderer” just two weeks before the opening of his trial on charges ofinciting race hatred.

The leader of hard-Right Dutch Freedom Party will be prosecuted in an Amsterdam court on April 13 for previous comparisons of Islam to Nazism.

On Thursday he fuelled the controversy surrounding his anti-Muslim politics and trial by publishing an article citing academics who accuse Islam’s founder of crimes ranging from child rape to murder.

“The historical Mohammad was the savage leader of a gang of robbers from Medina. Without scruples they looted, raped and murdered,” Mr Wilders claimed in the Dutch magazine HP/De Tijd.

In the article, Mr Wilders, whose Freedom Party MPs control the balance of power in the Dutch parliament, attacked fines levied on an Austrian feminist “for insulting a religion by calling Mohammad a paedophile”.

“However, that is the truth,” he wrote, citing the Muslim prophet’s consummation of a marriage to a wife who claimed she was a child aged nine at the time.

Mr Wilders, who lives under police protection following attempts by Islamist terrorists on his life, hypothesised that Mohammad suffered from a brain tumour causing the “paranoid schizophrenia” that led him to found the Muslim faith.

“Mohammad had an unhinged paranoid personality with an inferiority complex and megalomaniac tendencies. In his forties he starts having visions that lead him to believe he has a cosmic mission, and there is no stopping him,” he wrote.

In a ruling on Wednesday, an Amsterdam court ruled that Dutch prosecutors were entitled to indict Mr Wilders, if found guilty, he could face up to a year in jail or a £6,700 fine.

  1. No, he absolute not insane.

  2. I was just reading on another one of these forums that Islam is a religion not a race and that it encompases people of all colors. Now I believe this. How then is the individual above being tried for inciting racial hatred if he is going after a religion? If people in this country say negative things about Jews or Baptists do they go to jail and pay fines also?

  3. None has the right to attack others’ religious belief. I think he should be given a capital punishment for his heinous activities.

  4. really tariq? you’re not an american i assume. are you pakistani? afghan, maybe indonesian?

    intersesting contrast. westerners simply say something or burn a book and they (stupid as them may be) are villifed. but muslims kill people and they are “the religion of peace”? i love the un guy not blaming the people who actually did the killing? guess he is (rightfully so, he’s surrounded by muslims) scared for his life. maybe tariq is standing next to him. watch what you say buddy.

  5. Tariq, you have to be kidding. I would not give him a day in jail or a dollar in fines. Look at Bill Mahr, he attacks all religions several times a week. I really do not like most of what he says but he has a right to have a TV program to say it. If a religion or its members are not strong enough to stand against negative comments it is not much of a religion. Muslims cannot expect those outside of their religion to respect their tenets enough to abide by any of them. As a Christian I do not recognize Mohammad so I have no compunciton against drawing him on paper, I also have no compulsion to do so. If I ever did why should anyone care, I am not of the faith so my actions should mean nothing to those of the faith. One cannot blashpamy that they do not believe in they can only show disrespect for the belief system.

    my three news links are held up by the moderator. first is of a pakistani sufi mosque being bombed, killing 40some. the story of the afgahns killing the un workers and an old story of indonesian ahmadis being beaten to death.
