Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, a contemporary of Marine Le Pen and Donald Trump, released a powerful response to the latest terrorist attack in Paris, as the French head to the polls to decide the direction of their imperiled nation.
He issued a dire warning to Europeans, saying that the continent is being ‘colonized’ by Muslims who seek to import incompatible customs, Sharia Law, and their often violent adherence to the tenets of the Quran.
“Today, we are all on the Islamic death list,” he advised. “Political leaders and the media are still ignoring the problem.”
“They want us to believe that Islam is a peace-loving religion, and that there are only a few Islamic extremists that are ruining everything for everyone… what a lie, what a charade.”
“The truth is that Islam is not a peace-loving religion – it is an evil ideology that has ensconced itself as a life-threatening monster in our society.”
He cited statistics, examples, and precedent to corroborate his concerns, including a study done by the University of Amsterdam that revealed at least 11% of Muslims in Holland support violent jihad – a figure that represents over 100,000 Islamists in the tiny country with an active military personnel of only 50,000.
Similar research in other countries has produced even more shocking revelations, such as in France, where one-third of young Muslims recently said they find violent jihad “acceptable.”
The full report from this study is being withheld until after the upcoming French presidential elections, which is unsettling at best.
“We are being colonized,” said Wilders. “Our population is being replaced by people with norms and values that are not ours – by a culture of hatred and violence, but this is our country and we have to take it back.”
“We will lose our freedom, and the Netherlands will become an Islamic state.”
“The political elite has transformed the Netherlands from an independent country into a province of the European Union, and now it does nothing at all to prevent us from becoming a province of Africa.”
In 2015, the Pew Research Center projected that 10% of all Europeans will be Muslim by 2050, and that the Christian population could decrease by as much as 100 million, but the escalating influx of invaders and ‘refugees’ from the Middle East and Africa, and rapidly declining European birth rates, could speed that process considerably.
Pew also finds that France has the largest Muslim population of European countries, and the Gatestone Institute estimates that it could easily double in less than 10 years, reporting, “If the Muslim population of France can be estimated at around 6 million today, it could grow to 12 million by 2020-2025.”
Wilders noted that, due to his outspoken criticism of Islam, he has been forced to live under police protection for over 12 years, rarely sleeping in the same location two nights in a row, constantly on the move and always on high alert.
12.5 years 24/7 police protection.
Thanks so much to all the heroes from the Dutch police protecting me all that time!! pic.twitter.com/VbqLNZiI7J

Even when visiting the United States, he must travel with a full security detail, as he did during an appearance at private event at the Republican National Convention, where he was flanked by no less than five armed guards.
Wilders’ Party For Freedom (PVV), whose platform centers firmly on anti-Islamization and strict immigration controls, continued to gain ground in Holland’s government, winning 20 seats in the March election – up from 15 in 2012.
Marine Le Pen faces a similar battle and nearly identical issues in her own election, of which the first round has already begun and will continue through Sunday.
