Book Description

May 2012
Marked for Death


Fanatics, terrorists, and appeasers have tried everything to silence Geert Wilders, Europe's most controversial Member of Parliament--from putting him on trial to putting a price on his head. But Wilders refuses to be silenced--and one result is the book you have in your hands.


For years, from his native Netherlands, Wilders has sounded the alarm about the relentless spread of Islam in the West. And he has paid a steep personal price, enduring countless death threats and being forced into a permanent state of hiding.


Now, for the first time, Wilders offers a full account of his long battle against the zealots who have already slaughtered his countryman Theo van Gogh--whose killer also threatened to murder Wilders himself.


In "Marked for Death," Wilders reveals:
How--and why--liberal politicians, including Barack Obama, downplay the Islamic threat
The systematic suppression of free speech through lawsuits, prosecutions, threats, and violence meted out against Islam's critics
The untold story: how Islamic groups are redefining human rights to suppress non-Muslims everywhere
The true, bloody history of Islam's spread throughout the world
How the West can defend itself against an existential enemy determined to conquer the globe
Expelled from Britain, banned from Indonesia, denounced by the UN Secretary General, prosecuted in court for his beliefs, forced into government safe houses, and constantly threatened with death, Geert Wilders is unbowed and unapologetic. "Marked for Death" is a stark warning about a growing threat to our liberties written by a man who has lost his freedom--and would not see the rest of us suffer the same fate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A courageous and principled democrat. 28 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
Book Review

Recalling the contemptible treatment that Wilder's ten - minute film "Fitna" received at the hands of former British Home and Foreign Secretaries, the Right Hons Jacquie Smith and David Miliband respectively, who prevented its initial showing, every effort was made to portray Geert Wilders as a Right-wing extremist whose inflammatory views we needed to be protected from.

It is worth mentioning that David Miliband's denunciation of 'Fitna' was followed by his admission that he had not seen the film.

Savagely traduced as a populist or neo-fascist, Wilders is nothing of the kind. He is a democrat, not a demagogue and his knowledge of Islam, its history, of Middle East conflicts and the genocidal anti-Semitism of the more zealous Islamists (whose ideology is more political than religious)dwarfs that of his many detractors - often the purveyors of spent, recycled multicultural shibboleths.

This book deserves wide readership, but should be necessary reading for politicians, whether of the Right, Left or Centre, to help place them on higher alert as to the strategies and manouevres adopted by Muslim extremists in the UK and Europe. As I write this review Home Secretary, Theresa May, is proposing to ban arranged marriages in the UK and to ensure that independent financial support exists prior to dependants being allowed into the UK. It will be interesting to note what Parliamentary support these measures receive.

It can not be sufficiently stressed that Wilder's concerns are focussed on the spread of a hateful, intolerant and supremacist ideology that claims divine mandate: it is not about race, as some of his detractors are given to suggest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-pricking 3 May 2012
I like books that touch on the fundamental issue of the day and that help us come to terms with realities that we wish would just disappear, even though they persist.In this age of fundamentalism coming from all religions, but with far reaching implications the world faces from the jihadists, Geert Wilders work though extreme in some aspects does a good job of jolting us to the reality of this fringe in Islam that is silencing the majority of Muslims with its extreme views, radical actions and deceptive ways. After reading Janvier Chando's The Sweetest , and then Geert Wilder's Marked for Death:Islam's war Against the West and Me; I accept the fact that the extremists must never be allowed to triumph.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sad tale 6 July 2013
By ralphy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very disturbing account of the state of the West. We fought the Reformation to eradicate the fear and repression of a fundamentalist religion from Europe (the Catholic Church), only for our politicians to invite another fundamentalist religion back into Europe (the Islamic Church). Thus fear and repression stalk the backstreets of Europe once more, and politicians like Wilders have to live in fear of their lives. How on earth did we let ourselves be talked into this absurd and grave situation?

This is a sad and sobering tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breath of Fresh Air 29 April 2012
By Bruce - Published on Amazon.com
Geert Wilders new book, "Marked for Death" is an absolute must read and a breath of fresh air. In a methodical way it traces exactly why Islam has been such a curse for all those societies where it is practised. In the words of Mr. Wilders, "Throughout history, Islam has brought poverty, social strife, backwardness, intolerance, and tyranny to societies where it was practiced. This trend continues today, as the curse of Islam hampers the quest for freedom and democracy in the Middle East." The dangers it poses to the West cannot be underestimated and our pandering to Islam and indeed encouraging Muslim immigration to our lands can only undermine our democratic values. Mr. Wilders explains why Islam does not merit the description of it being a "religion." Rather it is really a totalitarian system of beliefs based on hatred and inequality and ultimately control of the human being.

5.0 out of 5 stars David CAN defeat Goliath: all it takes is courage'; Geert Wilders: 28 April 2012
By A. J. Stuijt - Published on Amazon.com

Marked for Death: Islam's War Against the West and Me" David can defeat Goliath ... all it takes is courage ' - Geert Wilders
- Book review of Dutch politician Geert Wilders' boek: "Marked for Death, Islam's War Against the West and Me', - reviewed by retired Dutch/South African journalist Adriana Stuijt a.j.stuijt@knid.nl

April 28 2012 - Dutch MP Geert Wilders represents the more than 1,5-million Dutch voters who at the previous election -- and despite a massive demonisation media-campaign against him -- voted to support the third-largest political party in The Netherlands, a small northern European trading-nation of 16,5-million citizens. The same trading-nation which founded the city of New York, the city of Cape Town, the city of Jakarta, and many other cities worldwide...

You won't easily find this latest book in Dutch bookshops however - even though it's in my opinion, a `must-read' for every Christian who is serious about wanting to oppose the islamisation of their suburbs, their cities and their countries - and the resultant destruction of their own religious and cultural heritage.

Because of the massive demonisation campaign waged against him in the mainstream news media, it's probably not widely known that Wilders is an erudite, well-informed scholar of Islam who travelled widely throughout the Middle East before he embarked on his political career. In other words, he knows what he's talking about.

In the foreword to his book, `Marked for Death, Islam's War Against the West and Me' - formally introduced in the USA on May 1, 2012 - the Dutch statesman is describes by the Canadian Free Speech advocate Mark Steyn as follows:
Steyn: "Geert Wilders, unlike most of his critics, has traveled widely in the Muslim world. Unlike them, he has READ the koran - and re-read it on all those interminable nights holed up in some dreary safe house, denied the consolations of family and friends. One way to think about what is happening is to imagine it the other way round. Rotterdam has a Muslim mayor, a Moroccan passport holder born the son of a Berber imam. How would the Saudis feel about an Italian Catholic mayor in Riyadh?"

"Islamo-fascism is a political doctrine, not a religion:"

Wilders exquisite knowledge of islamic culture and history becomes crystal-clear as he describes what he terms the march of `Islamofascism' in the first chapters of his book - and returning to it often in later chapters. The rise of Islam is described by Wilders in such riveting detail that the reader switches from astonishment to abhorrence -- and even incredulity at the gullibity of Westerners -- in quick succession. He describes, for instance, the way in which the contemporaries of Muhammed in Mecca in 610AD viewed this former caravan-driver, the son of a respected member of the Banu Hashim (Hashimite/Quraish) tribe - the dominant tribe in Mecca.

Muhammed's `revelations' were initially greeted by his bemused contemporaries as being `a medley of dreams,' `inventions', that he was `possessed', a `madman'. Wilders: In Muhammad's day, Arabia was inhabited by Jewish, Christian and pagan tribes. Mecca was a trading hub, with contacts to Ethopia, India, Persia, Egypt and the Levant. It was also an important religious locale where worship centered on the Kaaba - a stone possibly the remnant of a meteorite. The pre-Islamic Kaaba was a shrine housing a pantheon of gods - containing up to 360 idols, with three female deities - Al-Lat, Al-Uzzah and Manat as the most prominent - but also statues of Hindu gods and icons of Jesus and the Virgin Mary. "The Meccans", writes Wilders, were `multiculturalists avant la lettre. They were pluralistic and tolerant, willing to accommodate new religious groups.'

Muhammad did not obey the rules of warfare: helpless prisoners were ordered tortured, slaughtered, massacred...

Wilders believes that only by understanding Islam's aggressive military doctrine of world-domination, will Christians be motivated enough to want to defeat it actively. He emphasises the personality of the faith's founding father, Muhammed, in lurid detail the way in which Muhammed's growing intolerance grew as his power grew - which he gained primarily through incredibly vicious violence: by attacking the all-important caravan trade between Mecca and slaughtering anyone who opposed him.

"From Medina,' wrote Wilders, `Muhammad began raiding the camel caravans of Arab traders... these plundering raids are called ghazi in Arabic, from which the (nazi) word razzia is derived. Muhammad organised 82 razzias - twenty-six he personally led. He frequently violated the pre-Islamic Arabs' chivalrous warcode: "allowing him to defeat his opponents who obeyed the rules and who simply could not imagine that their enemy would not do the same.'
"Because these regimes have made `the universal truth' into a political ideology, they do not obey rules of warfare..." For example: In Badr in March 624, about 300 Muslims led by Muhammad defeated a Meccan escort three times their number and captured several important Quraishi leaders (i.e. members of Muhammad's own tribe). The spoils of battle went to Muhammad in accordance with a Koranic revelation that came to Muhammad immediately after the battle. It ordered: "The spoils belong to Allah and the Apostle'. Not content with mere robbery, Muhammad had the captured Quraishi leaders massacred, because, according to the Koran, `a prophet may not take captives until he has fought and triumphed in his land.' When people objected to this massacre, Muhammed had them slaughtered too. Wilders describes the way in which Muhammad ordered people to be tortured: for instance, by making fires on their chests and then cutting off their heads; cutting off their hands and feet and dumping them to die in the desert, even with crucification...

He emphasizes over and over again that only because they were willing to fight back, did the Christian Byzantines manage to hold off the onslaught of Islam against that magnificent city of Constantinople for 800 years - as did Frankish king Charles Martel at the French city of Tours, and the Viennese fought back against the Muslim sieges.

`Christianity was saved in Europe solely because they have been able to resist the Mohammedans by the sword...' US president Teddy Roosevelt

Wilders quotes an American president he greatly admires, Teddy Roosevelt, as noting the importance of this willingness to fight back against the Mohammedan invasion with the sword: "Roosevelt,' he wrote, `understood the importance of the victories at Tours and Vienna for the survival of Western civilization. Christianity was saved in Europe solely because they have been able to resist the Mohammedans by the sword.'

Roosevelt wrote in his 1916 book ` Fear God and Take Your Own Part ': "Wherever the mohammedans have complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of (Frankish King) Charles Martel to the sword of (Polish King Jan Sobieski in Vienna), Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could and would fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor'... Roosevelt also warned:

"To make a statement that all religions are the same is as naive as saying that all political parties are the same. Some religions and belief systems give a higher value to each human life and some religions and belief systems give a lower value. As generations of Americans past, our time has come to defend the beliefs and values that made this nation great, such as equality before the law... there are such `social values' today in Europe, America and Australia only because during those thousand years, the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do - that is to beat back the Moslem invader.'
Close link between the Nazis and the Muslims: "Eichmann gave a tour of Auschwitz to the grand mufti of Jerusalem, and showed him the gas chambers..."

Wilders also dwells in detail on the close link between the Nazis and the M uslims. "The Nazis recognized in Islam a kindred evil soul,' he writes, noting:

`Adolf Hitler deplored the fact that the Germanic Franks had won in Tours in 732: `Had Charles Martel not been victorious, then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glories the heroism and opens up the seventh heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so,' he quotes Hitler...'
And this admiration between Nazis and Muslims is mutual: `In 1941, Mohammad Amin al-Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem, who led several anti-Jewish pogroms in the Middle East in the 1920s and 1930s, visited Hitler and Himmler in Berlin. Auchmann - overseer of the Holocaust - gave him a private tour of Auschwitz and showed him the gas chambers. At the post-war Nuremberg trials, Dieter Wisliceny, Eichmann's deputy, revealed: 'the mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and had been a collaborator and advisor of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of this plan. He was one of Eichmann's best friends and had constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures'.

` Ironic that his critics accuse Wilders and other patriots of fascism and nazism... `

Wilders writes: "It is ironic that some of my critics accuse me and other patriots - who defend our national identity against Islamization and who honour Charles Marte and John III Sobieski as heroes of Western civilization - of fascism and nazism. It is Islam that lays claim to that charge.'

In Chapter 13, `To Turn the Tide', Wilders writes that Islamisation can be stopped - but it takes courage and a steely will to succeed. He warned: `As Franklin Roosevelt declared: "Let not the defeatist tell us that it is too late. It will never be earlier. Tomorrow will be later than today'.

" David can defeat Goliath ... all it takes is courage ' - Geert Wilders

He exhorts his countrymen and his fellow-Europeans to fight back - by pressuring their governments to close the borders to the tide of non-Western immigrants. "In 2010 alone, 52,000 non-Western immigrants entered the Netherlands, of whom more than 19,000 hailed from Islamic countries. I agreed with (two other major parties in the Netherlands, the liberal VVD and the Christian-Democrat Alliance CDA) that the cabinet would aim to reduce the number of non-Western immigrants by a very substantial number by 2014. This could lead to a decrease of 50 percent - and to also restrict the `family formation and family reunification' policies through which many non-Western immigrants are brought to the Netherlands by family members. "Furthermore, labour immigration from outside Europe is no longer allowed unless the employer can prove that it was impossible to fill a specific vacancy with Dutch or European employees'. Further requirements are that all newcomers must be obliged to integrate. to become Dutch in its political spirit, in its language and in its culture: "Those who fail their civil integration examination will... have their temporary rsidence permits revoked.'

From his hiding place, Geert Wilders not only exhorts us to fight back, but he also sends Christians worldwide a message of hope when he writes:

WE MUST BAN THE BURKA - PEOPLE'S FACES ARE THEIR IDENTITY:
"We must cherish our national identity. We must ban the burka - people's faces should not be hidden in society, for it is our faces that give us our identity and our fundamental means of communication with others. And (...) all it takes is courage. The Dutch example shows that when people overcome their fear, David can defeat Goliath. For decades, the multicultural elite suppressed dissent by denouncing as racist anyone who questioned their pro-Islam, pro-mass-immigration dogma. But finally, after silently watching for years the immense damage to our nation by the elite's policies, the Dutch people had enough. In the face of all the threats and intimidation levelled against my supporters, enough people had the courage to vote for the PVV that we fundamentally altered our country's policies'.

The high price paid by Geert Wilders and others -- such as the murdered political-science professor Pim Fortuyn; the murdered Dutch self-described `court-jester' Theo van Gogh; the exiled Dutch-Somalian MP Ayaan Hirshi Ali -- all fighting for their hard-won freedom in this small northern-European country, has already been immense.

Geert Wilders was also marked for death for criticizing Islam, writing: "For asserting our rights to say what we really think about the political ideology that disguises itself as a religion, we have been hounded by Muslims seeking to make an example of us. `Offend us,' they are saying to the world, andyou will end up in hiding like Wilders, attacked like (Danish cartoonist) Westergaard, or dead like Van Gogh"...

Wilders describes his current life as follows: "I live in a government safe house, heavily protected and bulletproof. Since November 2004, when a Muslim murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh for the crime of offending Islam, I have been surrounded by police guards and stripped of nearly all personal privacy. I am driven every day from the safe house to my office in the Dutch Parliament building in armoured police cars with sirens and flashing blue lights. I wear a bulletproof jacket when I speak in public. Always surrounded by plaincvlothes police officers, I have not walked the streets on my own in more than seven years... Why do I need this protection? I am not a president or a king; I am a mere member of the Dutch Parliament, one of 150 elected parliamentarians in the Tweede Kamer, the House of Representatives of the Netherlands, a small country of 16.5-million in Western Europe.'...

Yet Wilders is asking Christians to show similarly great courage: "We will not be picking up axes and breaking into people's homes. But we will not remain silent either. Moderation in the face of evil is not what our age needs. We must uncap our pens; we must speak words of truth. We are facing a determined enemy who is striving through all means to destroy the West and snuff out our traditions of free thought, free speech, and freedom of religion. Make no mistake: if we fail, we will be enslaved.'

"You can help fight the fight just by reading this book - which explains the many ways in which Islam has marked for death not just me, but all of Western Civilisation'. We must, in the worlds of Revolutionary War veteran General John Stark: "Live free or die'.

By Charles - Published on Amazon.com

I am a dutchman and I have just read Wilders book. It is very well written en contains a wealth of information, with a thick index and lots of notes. It is clear that Mr Wilders has put in a lot of time and effort to research his book and the result is not only well written but one which reads well too. Mr Wilders is by far the most important politician/personality in the Netherlands today. Since the murder of Dr Fortuyn in 2002 and film- and opinionmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004, the Netherlands has been engulfed in violence and clashes with the muslim community in a scale never seen before in our small well organized and tolerant country. Right up to the smallest community level, Dutch people have witnessed a dramatic 'changing of the guard' in their neighborhoods and streets. Everywhere muslim people started to move in, the typical Dutch social infrastructure slowly disappeared and disturbances and irritations appeared. Within 30 years the Netherlands have seen a enormous immigration flow which has risen from next to zero to almost 1 milion muslims. Mind you, our very small country now harbours 16 million people, so you can immediately see what the problem is. Especially if you know that most muslims always group together in the larger cities, the problems all come together. Mr Wilders was not the first politician to warn against the islamic influx in the country. In the 1980's the first voices started to be heard, mostly in the extreme left and right in Dutch politics. Not much happend (although the right was vilified and demonized). In the 1990's Mr Wilders old party, the VVD continued a very polite discourse on the subject, but again were margelized by the political correct mainstream, supported by a even more virulent political press. Then came Dr Fortuyn in 2002, taking the country by storm only to get murderd right before the elections, after an all out frenzy by the press and the multicultural elite, demonizing him as the next Nazi Fuhrer who would open the deathcamps again, this time for the muslims. He was executed by an extreme leftwing activist (who btw, will be released from prison shortly, serving only... 12 years). The rest is history. Are the Dutch going nuts? No. People are responding ever louder to the call: enough is enough. Stop islam, stop islamization, stop islamic immigration. Stop importing intolerance. On the 12th of september there will be new elections. Let's wait and see. This book is absolutely your money's worth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wilders' struggle is our struggle 19 April 2012
By Marcfrans - Published on Amazon.com
Following the defeat of fascism in WW2 and the collapse of Soviet communism in the late 1980's, Fukuyama and others posited the `End of History' thesis, by which was meant that ideas of freedom and liberal democracy had won the day. How wrong they were! During the long years of the `Cold War' and of the `Pax Americana' in Europe and East Asia, cultural changes were gradually taking place in sheltered countries whose cultural elites in media, academia and politics, began to lose touch with the realities of the world. Deep resentments, born from both envy and free-rider guilt, were taking hold in many minds and, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, anti-Americanism raised its ugly head even in official policies of various West-European countries. Freed from the fear instilled by an immediate external threat, Europeans came to believe in illusory `soft power' and that freedom could be `free'. Much of the media and education systems preached moral relativism in countless ways, and multiculturalism became an explicit dogma and official policy in many political circles. Economic globalization and lax immigration policies opened the door to the rise of a new form of totalitarianism in Europe, islamofascism, facilitated by the immigration of millions of Muslims and sustained by the proliferation of legislated restrictions on freedom of speech. These restrictions usually took the form of so-called anti-hate, anti-discrimination, and/or anti-negationism laws, but they were inevitably selectively applied and all had the same deleterious effect on European cultures. They stifled free thought and speech, and they were abused by the powerful to silence their critics. A few selective examples of `Kangaroo trials' in a couple of countries (Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, etc...) sufficed, and self-censorship has become the order of the day in Europe. That is the `big picture' context in which this book by Geert Wilders should be seen.

Wilders paints a grim picture of daily life under constant death threat from radical Muslims and illustrates the craven responses from major contemporary political and cultural figures in the Netherlands, and more broadly in the West, to islamofascism. His claims about Islam as a violent intolerant ideology are well documented in this book through appropriate references to numerous Koranic verses, the Hadith, speeches, etc... He also contrasts the responses of contemporary Western politicians with quotations from major American historical figures like Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and the like. He explains well, and documents, that Islam does not really preach and follow the Golden Rule (that we would do unto others as we would have them do unto us), and thus clarifies why President Obama's Cairo speech on June 4, 2009, was so misguided. Such appeasement and projection of moral weakness can only strengthen Islam's political agenda and weaken courageous individual Muslims who resist intolerant Islamic doctrines.

While Wilders is right in claiming that Islam is incompatible with Western constitutional systems and attendant individual liberties, it is not always clear that he is willing to extend such liberties to Islamists and their ideas. That is understandable for someone who is (intolerably) "marked for death" by barbarous Islamists, but other free people can genuinely disagree about appropriate methods to fight this new fascism in our midst. By all means, debate, expose, speak freely, reject pc-speak and political correctness in general, assert your constitutional rights, insist on strict maintenance of `rule of law', but beware of bans that would push this ideology underground and that would create `martyrs' (in the minds of many nave Westerners). Wilders is very good at exposing how the ruling paradigms of cultural and moral relativism in the West are undermining our basic freedoms, and exposes the nefarious role played by Western apologists domestically and by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (of 57 Islamic countries) internationally.

Wilders is not defeatist and believes that the tide can be turned, in part because of the recent political success of his new Freedom Party in the Netherlands and very recent courageous actions by the current Dutch government. While one could argue about some of his specific recommendations, the underlying principles he defends are solid and commonsensical: defend freedom of speech, reject cultural relativism, counter Islamization, and cherish national identity.

Americans, Canadians, Australians and others in the relatively `free world', better take heed and learn from the recent experiences of Mr Wilders and of other brave singled-out Europeans, because their cultures too are displaying similar trends of preemptive capitulation to islamofascism, and they are going down the same ruinous cultural path that Europe has followed in recent decades to growing bondage. Mark Steyn wrote an excellent and entertaining foreword to this book. He puts it well at the end: "Geert Wilders is not ready to surrender without exercising his right to know, to utter, and to argue freely--in print, on screen, and at the ballot box. We should cherish that spirit, while we can". Indeed we should, while we still can, not only for our own sake, but for that of our progeny too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading 3 May 2012
By A. Field - Published on Amazon.com
The West, and Europe in particular, needs a lot more men like Geert Wilders. Nearly 70 years ago, we defeated the fascists of Germany and Japan, yet no sooner had we defeated these two fascist regimes did the fascist cult of Islam begin to rise. Whereas Nazi and Japanese fascism were based on ideas of "racial superiority", Islam is based on "religious and cultural superiority". Due to followers believing they are carrying out God's teachings, Islam is arguably even more dangerous than these other two fascist regimes (in no way do I seek to minimise the evil of the Nazis or Japanese in WW2).

Stupidly, the cancer of Islam was self-inflicted on the West by naive politicians through mass Islamic immigration, clueless as to the dangers posed by this evil, barbaric "religion" (death cult).

Today, the West, including our politicians, are fast waking up to the extreme danger posed by this fascist cult, yet are in many cases scared to speak out in view of the inevitable violence that will result, or the threat to their own safety by "Religion of Peace" fanatics. Making the fight against Islam even more difficult is the huge array of human rights laws in Europe, which Muslims exploit to their advantage.

History shows that when things go too far in one direction, there is inevitably a violent reaction in the opposite direction. That is, people will only tolerate so much nonsense before demanding change. In my view, we are fast approaching this point, where Islam and Muslims suffer a violent backlash in Europe. When this happens, Muslims will of course play the victim card, as they are so good at doing.

Geert Wilders quite rightly realises that there can be no peaceful co-existence with Islam. We either fight or surrender to this evil cult. He is a brave man; we need many more like him.
