Islamofascism Is Real And Dangerous

Iran Warns Netherlands Not to Air Controversial Anti-Muslim Film
A senior Iranian lawmaker warned the Netherlands on Monday not to allow the screening of what it called an anti-Islamic film produced by Dutch politician, claiming it "reflects insulting views about the Holy Koran."

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, promised widespread protests and a review of Iran's relationship with the Netherlands if Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders' work is shown.

"If Holland will allow the broadcast of this movie, the Iranian parliament will request to reconsider our relationship with it," Boroujerdi said, according to IRNA, the official Iranian news agency. "In Iran, insulting Islam is a very sensitive matter and if the movie is broadcasted it will arouse a wave of popular hate that will be directed towards any government that insults Islam.

Wilders calls his 10-minute film "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamicization, " and said it could air as early as this week on Dutch television.

"People who watch the movie will see that the Koran is very much alive today, leading to the destruction of everything we in the Western world stand for, which is respect and tolerance," Wilders, the 41-year-old leader of the right-wing Party for Freedom, said last month in a telephone interview with FOXNews.com.

"The tsunami of Islamicization is coming to Europe. We should come to be far stronger."
First of all, Mr. Boroujerdi, fuck you. Second, if you take a long, slow look around you might notice that the Netherlands isn't in Iran, and as such neither the people of Holland nor I care what you might find offensive in your dusty little corner of the 12th century. Finally, in the Western world we believe in freedom of speech and expression, which means we can criticize any religion we want, any way we want, any time we want. So stick your complaints in your Mullah-hole and shut up.

Now on to our own housekeeping. It does appear that ol' Geert may have stepped off the right side of the political spectrum himself, having called for the Koran to be banned. Still it's his right to express such opinions without the threat of violent retribution. But here's a warning of my own for the radical Muslims in Europe: the Europeans are always only about one vote away from a pogrom, and it doesn't take much to push Europe down that slippery slope...

The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe. - Tom Wolfe (Referencing French Socialist Jean-François Revel)
