Rabat - As usual, while the rest of the world listened to Trump’s speech before the Arab Islamic American Summit and heard talk of a united Arab world and the west, the Netherland’s, Geert Wilders, was hearing something else entirely.
Rabat – As usual, while the rest of the world listened to Trump’s speech before the Arab Islamic American Summit and heard talk of a united Arab world and the west, the Netherland’s, Geert Wilders, was hearing something else entirely.
Those who thought, or hoped, that the Dutch election put a metaphoric muzzle on the Party of Freedom’s racist leader, Geert Wilders, were reminded Sunday that the man and his rhetoric aren’t going anywhere quietly, anytime soon.
But islam is evil. And barbaric and violent by nature. It wants all non-muslims to submit. Nothing will ever change that. We must deislamize https://t.co/rAfGZjLH4X

Raging against a machine of his own creation, that of an Islamic conspiracy to take over the world by any means necessary, Wilders took to Twitter Sunday to proclaim that “Islam hates us.” He continued, identifying Saudi Arabia as “the biggest sponsor of terrorism and our own culture is far superior to Islam.”
He wasn’t finished. Calling Islam “evil,” Wilders described the religion as “barbaric and violent by nature.”
Even as US President, Donald Trump, and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman were urging a visionunified of worldwide cooperation to eradicate Islamist extremism, Wilders figuratively covered his ears and sang a tired refrain that went something like this: Islam “wants all non-Muslims to submit. Nothing will change that. We must deislamize.”
Earlier Sunday Wilders tweeted an image of a party poster with the words: “Islam is a dangerous totalitarian ideology in the guise of a religion.” Hardly words meant to inspire bridge-building but perhaps not altogether unexpected either.
