We received a copy this morning of a YouTube video of Geert Wilders speech at Monday’s PEGIDA Rally in Dresden with English subtitles. It projects more power in delivery than reading his text. Wilders gives voice to the West’s concerns about Islamization nurturing Jihadis in our midst attracted like bees to the beehive of sacralized barbarity, the Islamic State. His speech demonstrated solidarity with embattled Israel surrounded by the dark forces of Islam seeking its destruction. That is connected to his recurring theme: the preservation of the Judeo-Christian values at the core of Western values of rule by law, tolerance, freedom and liberty. After posting Wilders’ speech I exchanged the picture I found which had a glimpse of an Israeli flag at the Dresden PEGIDA rally with colleague “Baron Bodissey” at Gates of Vienna. He pointed out that there were Israeli flags present at all of the PEGIDA rallies. My friend Fred Taub founder of Boycott Watch drew attention to this when we posted on his Facebook page this question using an exceprt from Wilders Speech:
Who said the following this week :
Dear friends, …. patriots,
look at Israel, learn from Israel.
Israel is an island in a sea of Islamic barbarism.
Israel is a beacon of freedom and prosperity in a region of Islamic darkness.
Israel refuses to be overrun by the jihadists. So should we.
A) Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton
B) Republican Presidential Candidate Jeb Bush
C) Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party
D) Al Sharpton.
I raised with Taub the prospect that perhaps that both Israeli PM Netahyahu and Wilders who speak in Churchillian cadence are leaders of the free world. We can only hope that Wilders will become head of a ruling coalition in the Hague Parliament.
