It’s good news that the populist principle supporting nation-state government and rejecting globalism is sweeping Europe.
The European Union mega-state has been a dismal failure, particularly its Schengen rule of dissolving borders which allowed illegal aliens from the Middle East to swarm throughout the continent. Smaller, more local government is looking very appealing to voters sick of the distant, bureaucratic EU.
As a result, so-called “far right” candidates who have been dismissed for years by the media as fringe characters — particularly Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen — are now coming on strong in upcoming elections. Even Angela Merkel, facing elections later in the year, has recently sought to mitigate the open borders disaster she created in Europe by promising increased deportations.
The Dutch election takes place in one month, and Geert Wilders is leading. The winds of change truly are blowing.
Campaigning for the Dutch election began on Wednesday with anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders frontrunner in a vote that will test the anti-establishment sentiment that swept Britain out of the European Union and Donald Trump into the U.S. presidency.
Wilders, a eurosceptic, anti-immigration fan of Trump, has dubbed the March 15 parliamentary election the start of a “Patriotic Spring” in Europe, where French and German voters go to the polls in May and September.
Wilders and his Party for Freedom has led in opinion polls for most of the past two years, but the fragmented political landscape means a coalition government of four or more parties is all but inevitable.
Dale Hurd sat down for an interview with the candidate last week. Wilders described the social conditions affecting politics, for example the crazy hate speech conviction foisted upon him (for suggesting fewer Moroccans) from activist judges, sending the message that any speech critical of Islam may be punished. In addition, the Dutch people have suffered under extreme austerity measures, such as pensions and healthcare for elderly being cut, while great sums have been spent on welfare for illegal aliens, aka “refugees.” The oppression of lawless immigration and its cultural consequences are what Geert Wilders plans to change.
AMSTERDAM – Some say he will be the next nail in the European Union’s coffin. Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ anti-EU, anti-immigration Party for Freedom is on track to win national elections in March. But he told us why a victory still might not make him the next prime minister. He also calls his conviction on a hate speech charge, for saying there are too many Moroccans in the Netherlands, “ridiculous.”
He still lives under 24-hour police protection from death threats. And whatever you do, don’t call him the Dutch Donald Trump. Geert Wilders emerged from his trial more defiant and more popular than ever. And he granted this exclusive interview to CBN News.
Dale Hurd: After your recent conviction for hate speech, you didn’t sound very repentant, very sorry.
Wilders: No I’m not, you know, how can I be? I really said nothing wrong and the crazy Dutch jurisprudence – it’s not even our law – I think I’m the first Dutchman who was convicted for something that is not in the law because the judge decided that Moroccans, which as you know is a nationality, has to be seen as a race. Dale, the reason I said it was because 80 percent of the Dutch jihadists who go to fight in Syria are Moroccans. 80 percent. They are 22 times over represented when it comes to street crime, and 60 percent of the Moroccan youth under the age of 23 has been arrested at least once, so in any poll it proved that the majority of the Dutch people agreed with me about the Moroccans, and the judge said because of international jurisprudence, once again not even in the Dutch law, that Moroccans had to be seen as a race. So if you are in Holland, be careful not to say tomorrow that you don’t like French, German or Swedish food or people, you could be called a racist. Of course this is ridiculous. I did nothing wrong and that’s why I will appeal this crazy verdict.
Below, masked men attempt to shut down a political conference of the AfD in Stuttgart.
The Russian broadcaster RT explained the arrests with its usual snark about sovereignty defenders.
CBN’s Dale Hurd interviewed Björn Höcke, one of the AfD leaders after his electoral success in March, and the politician reflected thoughtfully about how Germany’s current difficulty.
Dale Hurd: I assume that you think a big problem with the migrants coming into Germany is that they are Muslim?
Björn Höcke: Yes it’s a big problem. We are still a nation with a Christian imprint. Even though we have many atheists in Germany and in Europe, our values are from a Christian foundation. Islam is a religion that never reformed. It stayed in the Middle Ages. And I, living in Europe, don’t want to adjust myself to Islamic values from the Middle Ages. I’m of the solid conviction that we can’t take in millions of Muslims and integrate them into Germany and Europe.
The lefties squawk about the conservative AfD being nazi, but it’s the masked left-wingers who use violence to shut down legitimate speech, like restricting immigration.
How do anarchists imagine their idealized borderless world will operate? If sovereign democratic states are beaten down into diminished power, who will run the one-world society? Certainly the transnational business interests would move into the vacuum and become even stronger. Have anarchists thought this through?
German riot police on Saturday arrested around 400 protesters trying to block access to the congress of the right-wing populist AfD political party, as clashes broke out between party members and left-wing activists.
The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is meeting in the western city of Stuttgart, where it is expected to adopt an anti-Islamic manifesto, emboldened by the rise of European anti-migrant groups like Austria’s Freedom Party.
The AfD congress comes a week after the far-right Freedom Party’s Norbert Hofer sent shock waves through Austria’s political establishment by winning the first round of a presidential ballot.
Heavily-armoured riot police used pepper spray to hold off protesters, many dressed in black and masking their faces, as officers escorted AfD members into the congress hall. Continue reading this article
It’s hard to figure exactly how Europe became so dangerously insane. Certainly extreme liberalism has created a cascade of bad ideas, like all diversity is wonderful and mistrust of Islam is evil racism (even though a person of any race can be a Muslim).
BRUSSELS — We now know that there has been a cover-up by governments and the media in Western Europe about the potential danger of immigration from the Islamic world. It was a conspiracy involving politicians, police officials, and journalists.
The European public was programmed by a relentless media campaign to believe immigration was good; criticism of immigration was racist.
Six months before the deadly Islamic terror attacks in Belgium, left-wing demonstrators were playing dead in the streets of Brussels, protesting for more immigration from the Middle East and against stronger borders in Europe — stronger borders that might have saved the lives of 34 people killed in Brussels last month.
Sold a Bill Goods?
The Left’s mantra has been “no walls, no borders.” But many Europeans now realize they were sold a bill of goods about open borders and immigration by the political and media class.
Voices who warned about the threat from open immigration were either branded racist or simply ignored. Belgian Jewish leader Joël Rubinfeld warned CBN News a year and a half ago that the Belgian government was too soft on Muslim extremists, and that more attacks were coming.
“We say you need a very long fork to eat with the devil. I think there is no fork long enough to eat with Islamism,” he said.
And the multicultural charade has now clearly crumbled — in Germany when the city of Cologne was caught trying to cover-up massive New Year’s sex attacks, in Sweden where the public learned that the police and media covered up large scale sexual assaults at a summer music festival in Stockholm last year, and in Brussels, which became a home to some of the most dangerous terrorists in Europe.
In cities across Western Europe, women are now afraid to walk alone at night on the street. Muslims make up almost half of Belgium’s prison population, and Jews everywhere live in fear of anti-Semitic attacks.
This didn’t just happen, but in many cases the information has been suppressed.
Sweden has been notorious for censoring the problems of immigration. Newspapers obscured the faces and changed the skin tone of crime suspects with immigrant backgrounds, while showing their faces as if they were white native Swedes. Continue reading this article
Then turn to Brussels, some parts of which host large communities of Moroccan and Turkish immigrants, mostly from religiously conservative regions of those countries. Among respondents in the city, practising Catholics amounted to 12% and non-practising ones to 28%. Some 19% were active Muslims and another 4% were of Muslim identity without practising the faith. The atheist/agnostic camp came to 30%.
This surrender is what happens when liberal governments allow the traditional enemy of Western civilization to invade via mass immigration. The eventual totalitarian conquest by Islam is the same as war, only without all the messy bombing and destruction. However the new rulers are rapefugees and women won’t be the only people to lose their freedom.
Remember, before Muslim immigration, the only drawbacks to a New York New Years Eve were cold weather and crowds. Now America has to deal with immigrants who want to murder us all and institute a totalitarian world caliphate.
Plus, the security measures in New York’s Times Square don’t sound like an evening of fun: no backpacks, no alcohol and no bathrooms inside the security corral. A long freezing night without a bottle of Jack to warm the soul? The extreme safety measures are more examples of how immigration of unfriendlies means less freedom.
Below, New York’s Times Square will have 6,000 city police to help celebrants avoid Muslim diversity.
This extra policing must cost taxpayers a bloody fortune, but media reports normally omit that detail, perhaps so citizens won’t reflect on the expense of unwise immigration.
Authorities are stepping up security for New Year’s Eve celebrations across the U.S. as revelers prepare to welcome 2016 amid widespread nervousness after recent terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif.
In America’s two largest cities, officials assured the public Wednesday that there were no known credible threats against either New York or Los Angeles ahead of three of the most famous New Year’s events on the calendar.
“Leave the worrying to the NYPD,” said James O’Neill, chief of the department. “People should feel safest this New Year’s Eve because we’re there.”
About 1 million people are expected to pack the blocks around Times Square Thursday night to watch the 11,875-pound Waterford crystal ball drop, marking the official start of 2016. Continue reading this article
CBN’s Dale Hurd interviewed JihadWatch’s Robert Spencer last month about jihad plans for the future of Europe and it inhabitants. Rome, and the Vatican in particular, should lock and load because the Pope’s church has a big target on its dome in the minds of Allah’s gangsters.
Noteworthy is Spencer’s remark about how the hordes of Muslim illegal aliens flooding into Europe (aka Hijrah) are an opportunity for the Islam tribe to accomplish its task, assigned by Mohammed, to conquer Rome.
SPENCER: Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi who is probably the most influential and popular Muslim sheikh in the world — he’s a TV preacher, actually he has a show on al Jazeera, and he has said that now is the time that the Muslims are going to conquer Rome. He states it as if it’s just an established fact that’s going to happen, and that he thinks it’s going to happen actually through a massive influx of immigrants and that is exactly what we’re seeing in Europe today. Then there are other preachers who are actively calling upon Muslims to conquer Rome, saying that the time is nigh now with so many immigrants in Europe and the European countries being so weak and supine.
When the Pope visited the United States recently, he was surprisingly quiet about the genocide of Christians in the Middle East and the threat to Christians and European civilization generally coming from jihadist Islam. Does he think that his gentle outreach will convince Allah’s psycho-killers to renounce their violence against non-Muslims? Francis appears to believe that liberal pacifism is the correct Christian posture against the monstrous evil that would destroy freedom in the world.
Presumably the Vatican’s security forces are more realistic than their boss, but the weakness of the world’s best known Christian leader is troubling.
ROME — The Islamic State has a plan to conquer Rome. Yes, it might sound crazy, but ISIS believes the conquest of Rome is central to its mission.
They believe it is necessary to fulfill what Islam teaches was the prophecy of Muhammed and to prepare the return of the Muslim messiah: the Mahdi.
“ISIS thinks that Rome is one of its primary goals and is in its timetable,” Robert Spencer, author of The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS, said.
“It has a timetable where in the 10 years, by the year 2025, it hopes to bring about Armageddon, the final struggle between good and evil or between the Muslims and the non-Muslims,” he explained. “And that one of the chief stepping stones to that Armageddon battle is the conquest of Rome, which they think they’re going to be able to do with the next five years, by 2020.”
Two Cities, One Mission
Muslim scholars say Muhammed prophesied that the two great Roman cities would be conquered: Constantinople and Rome. Constantinople is now Istanbul, a Muslim city.
Rome remains to be conquered.
“Once Rome is conquered, in this view, within the next five years, then Israel will follow shortly after. They also believe that during this time period they’re also going to conquer Saudi Arabia and Iran,” Spencer said.
Now, before you laugh, consider that phase one of the Islamic State’s plan to take Rome may already be underway: flooding Europe with ISIS fighters under the cover of the current refugee crisis.
“They’re not talking about doing it by conventional armies; they’re talking about doing (it) by overwhelming these lands with sympathizers from within, and in influx of people from outside,” Spencer said.
“And that’s something we see happening right now in Europe. And so it’s not that far outside of the realm of possibility that they could at least make these attempts,” he continued. Continue reading this article
Dale Hurd has done another of his European reports where he finds interesting people to interview. From the latest, I learned that Muslim gangs in Malmo, Sweden, chuck hand grenades at rivals during their rumbles, a new diversity fact.
The failures of multicultural immigration keep piling up, but Europeans are undaunted, or at least their ruling elites are determined to stay the course. Pro-sovereignty parties are becoming more popular particularly in smaller nations, but the more powerful countries like Germany and France still favor the open borders model of the European Union.
LONDON — It is a staggering humanitarian crisis: the largest refugee influx since World War II. More than 300,000 Africans and Asians have crossed Europe’s border this year, double last year’s pace. Hundreds more have died trying in just the past few weeks.
The other side of this tragedy is how it will change Europe. Non-Western migrants had already been flooding into Europe for decades. Leaders refused to stop it for many reasons. Some saw migrants as cheap labor. Others were afraid of being branded racists for opposing it.
But long before this present crisis, experts were asking if Europe would still be Europe if immigrants someday outnumbered natives.
The Great Replacement
“It’s increasingly clear in Western European countries that as populations reach a tipping point, that there are increasing groups of people,” George Igler, with London’s Discourse Institute, told CBN News.
“If the political establishment continues to get its way, in five, in 10, in 15 years, how many Germans are going to be left in Germany?” he asked. “How many French people are going to be left in France? How many English people are going to be left in England?”
French writer Renaud Camus calls the influx “the great replacement” and says it is the biggest thing to happen to France since the 15th century.
“Because what is happening, the population is changing,” he explained. “Can France be the same with a different people? And obviously, the answer is no.” Continue reading this article
CBN reporter Dale Hurd recently interviewed Mona Walter, an ex-Muslim living in Sweden, to learn about her spiritual journey. After she left Somalia for Scandinavia as a refugee, she read the Koran for the first time and discovered the truth of what Islam is about. Her search eventually led her to Christianity, but her mission is still with Islam, namely to tell Muslims what the Koran really says.
Truth-tellers, particularly when the subject is Islam, often face a lot of resistance. Walter gets death threats and sometimes needs security when she travels. She is brave to do outreach to the Allah tribe, but the hostile reaction of Muslims again demonstrates what a monster the west has created by allowing Islam immigration.
GOTHENBURG, Sweden — Mona Walter is on a mission. Her mission is for more Muslims to know what is in the Koran. She says if more Muslims knew what was in the Koran, more would leave Islam.
Walter came to Sweden from Somalia as a war refugee when she was 19. She says she was excited about joining a modern European nation with equal rights for women. But as a young Muslim woman, that was not the Sweden she encountered.
A Real Introduction to Islam
It was in Sweden that she first experienced radical Islam on a daily basis.
“I discovered Islam first in Sweden. In Somalia, you’re just a Muslim, without knowing the Koran. But then you come to Sweden and you go to mosque and there is the Koran, so you have to cover yourself and you have to be a good Muslim.”
Walter says she grew up in Somalia never having read the Koran.
“I didn’t know what I was a part of. I didn’t know who Mohammed was. I didn’t know who Allah was. So, when I found out, I was upset. I was sad and I was disappointed,” she recalled.
And it was in Sweden that Walters says she discovered Allah is a god who hates, and that Islam is not a religion of peace.
“It’s about hating and killing those who disagree with Islam. It’s about conquering. Mohammed, he was immoral. He was a bloodthirsty man. He was terrible man, and Muslims can read that in his biography — what he did to Jews, how he raped women, how he killed people. I mean, he killed everyone who didn’t agree with him,” she explained.

[. . . .] Massive immigration has made Malmö today one quarter Muslim, and stands to transform it into a Muslim majority city within just a few decades. One of the most popular baby names is not Sven, but Mohammed. Pork has been taken off some school menus. Want to learn to drive? You can attend Malmö’s own “Jihad Driving School.”
But despite Malmö’s usually placid appearance, this experiment in multiculturalism has not gone well. In the Rosengaard section of Malmö, a housing project made up primarily of immigrants, fire and emergency workers will no longer enter without police protection.
Unemployment in Rosengaard is reported to be 70 percent. An immigrant-fueled crime wave affects one of every three Malmö families each year. The number of rapes has tripled in 20 years. [. . .]
Here’s the video version of the report, which stands up well for being six years old:
Today’s report from The Local is too politically correct to name the source of the violence in the school, but it can be safely assumed to be the Muslim students.
Muslim immigration is a bad mistake for any first world nation. America should end it immediately.
A secondary school in Malmö has been closed after the teachers’ union declared that it is too dangerous a place for students and teachers to attend due to widespread violence and criminality.
Violence, threats and visits from adult criminals eventually became too much for the teachers’ unions at Varner Rydén School in the Malmö suburb of Rosengård, whose safety officers have now closed the premises.
“Violence, threats and verbal abuse. There has also been trouble with students from other schools,” said Hans Nilsson at the City of Malmö to news agency TT.
The responsibility now lies with the teachers’ employer, the City of Malmö, as the school closure can only be waived by the Swedish Work Environment Authority (Arbetsmiljöverket).
The students at the school have been notified of the closure. But it is not yet clear where they will be placed.
“Fighting among the students means that security can’t be guaranteed,” said Catharina Niwhede at the National Union of Teachers in Malmö to the local Sydsvenskan daily. Continue reading this article
Allah’s thugs in the Boko Haram gang have been marauding through Nigeria, mass-murdering and kidnapping school girls along the way to be forced to convert to Muslims and become sex slaves of jihadists, a common practice of Islam. In fact, the Boko violence has caused Nigeria to postpone its upcoming presidential election which was scheduled for February 14. More than 6000 civilians were killed by Boko jihadists last year.
However, a few girls have managed to escape their captors, and provide insight into Boko Haram’s particular flavor of Islamic barbarity, hinted at by the group’s name, which means “Western education is sin.”
It’s been more than 300 days since Islamic terrorists with the group Boko Haram snatched more than 270 girls from a boarding school in Nigeria in the dead of night.
Despite a worldwide outcry and military action, most of the girls are still missing. But some have managed to escape.
“They told us that if we do not convert to Islam they will slit our throats. They asked the healthy ones to perform the (Islamic) rites while we, the sick ones, did not perform the rites,” 15-year-old Abigail John, who was held by Boko Haram for more than four weeks, said.
John was among three girls who recently escaped from Boko Haram. She had worried she would never see freedom again.
“The way they spoke to us, they had no intention of releasing us,” she said. “They said we would be married off as soon as we got well and that they would marry us to their members who were single. We never thought we would regain our freedom.” Continue reading this article
France is in a terrible state, where hostile Muslim attacks are ratcheting up, particularly in the mass murders at the Charlie Hebdo office, but the old habit of political correctness remains in place. The Hebdo slaughter was a major shock to the French psyche, yet the willingness to deal with the cancer of Muslim immigration is missing, according to a report from CBN’s Dale Hurd. In fact, his report asks, “Does France face civil war?”
PARIS – French Holocaust survivors gathered last month on the 70th anniversary of the liberation the Auschwitz.
They are men and women who saw terrible anti-Semitism as children and who must again live in a time when some in France and in Europe want to kill Jews.
France’s Jews have felt like a target for a long time. And the killings by Muslim terrorists at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and kosher supermarket have only confirmed their worst fears, and it will cause more of them to leave France for Israel and the United States.
Post-Charlie: Same Old, Same Old
Some have called the massacre France’s 9/11. But America clearly changed after 9/11. It’s not at all clear if France has changed enough.
Yes, there have been arrests and more police and soldiers have been deployed. But political correctness is still so deeply rooted in France that speaking out too strongly against Muslim immigration and being labelled a racist can still end a career.
French TV commentator Eric Zemmour was fired in December for saying that Muslims should be deported to avoid “chaos and civil war.”
Zemmour has written the bestseller, The French Suicide, about how France is being destroyed. CBN News had hoped to interview Zemmour, but his publicist told us he was in hiding because of death threats.
One week after the killings, Paris police banned an anti-Islamization march.
Even popular far-right leader Marine Le Pen has been tiptoeing around the subject. She’s reportedly feuding with her foreign policy adviser, Aymeric Chauprade, who gave an exclusive interview to CBN News.
Chauprade angered Le Pen by saying that France is at war with some Muslims and in danger from what he called a fifth column of 1 million radical Muslims in France.
“The problem, which is maybe worse, is the sympathy from a large part of the Muslim population in France toward jihad and towards the radical idea,” he told CBN News.
“(French leaders) refuse to accept the idea that violence is rooted in Islam. I do not say all Muslims are violent but that violence is rooted in Islam’s holy texts,” he said.
An Outpouring of Hypocrisy
The world saw millions of Frenchmen flood into the streets to say “I am Charlie.” It was a touching outpouring of support for free speech in the face of Muslim terror.
But conservatives in France saw something else: hypocrisy.
The same French leaders marching for free speech have not allowed free speech critical of Islam, except for few Charlie Hebdo cartoons, and have crafted policies that have allowed Muslim extremism to flourish in France.
French author, journalist and publisher Jean Robin says the government brought on the attacks, by being harder on critics of Islam than on Muslims. Continue reading this article
Dale Hurd’s recent interview with the Dutch freedom fighter Geert Wilders got personal about the sacrifices made to speak honestly about the danger of Islam to Western civilization. Wilders has lived like a prisoner for the last 10 years, starting with the murder of filmmaker Theo van Gogh by a Muslim assassin on an Amsterdam street after the artist criticized Islam. Police thought the outspoken Wilders might be next and arrived at his home, informing him he had three minutes to leave.
Such is the life of a well known critic of Islam and Muslim immigration — living in safe houses with 24/7 police protection.
Hurd asks whether it has been worth the personal cost to live with a target on his back. Wilders answers that the price has indeed been high, but the truth must be told about Islam’s threat to Western freedoms. He wishes more people would do it.
Hated by millions and marked for death, Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders is one of the most controversial politicians in the world.
Wilders believes the religion of Islam is violent and dangerous, and because he has said so, publicly and persistently, he has had to forfeit a normal life. November 4 marks exactly 10 years Wilders has lived under police protection.
It began with the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who had made a film attacking Islam. Van Gogh was murdered by a Moroccan Muslim on the streets of Amsterdam after the film was made.
Dutch police believed Wilders might be in the next victim and showed up at his door.
Geert Wilders: They were wearing machine guns and bullet proof vests and I said, “Hey, what is happening?” And they said, “We don’t know what is happening but you have to leave now, in three minutes.”
I just took some shirts and we went away and I didn’t know where we went, where we would go. The police didn’t even know. We changed cars and we ended up in an army barrack. And since then, 10 years ago, I have not been home.
It’s something you don’t wish your worst enemy to experience. It’s not only the threats. It’s the fact that you lose your freedom, your privacy. My wife and I lived for a few months in a prison cell, a prison cell in Zeist where the Lockerbie suspects used to be imprisoned. Nowadays we have safe houses. I live in a safe house provided by the state.
Dale Hurd: Do you every wonder if you made a mistake? Has this been worth it?
Wilders: I am sure I made no mistake. I make mistakes every day. I’m just human. I am full of mistakes. But to speak the truth about Islam, as I see it, and as the reality, is not a mistake. I wish many people did it.
I understand why few people do it because the price is very high. Besides the death threats you get from average people, from Islamic dissent, from organizations like al Qaeda or the Taliban, also a lot of people label as a “bigot” or a “racist” or an “extremist” – they try to hurt you in any possible way.
You are sued as I have been, and will be again, by a criminal court or by another court. They will sue you, they will threaten you, and they will label you.
So, I understand, it’s not very attractive to speak out against the dark forces of Islam, to be proud of our own values and identity, which I believe are based on Christianity and Judaism and humanism and not about Islam. And you pay a very high price, so I understand why people don’t do it.
But people should do it and what has happened with the Islamic State nowadays in the last few months has opened the eyes of so many people, so I hope it will change.
Hurd: You never wished you had done something else to have a normal life?
Wilders: No. I wish I had a normal life, yes. I would be lying to you if I didn’t say that my most important wish is to lead a normal life. But even more important than that is to fight Islam, to fight for our freedom, the freedom of our society, to be proud of who we are.
And I really strongly believe that Islam is dangerous, Islam is violent, Islam wants to dominate and not assimilate in our societies. And our countries, our free societies will change. And Christians, Jews, apostates – we will be the first ones to pay a price if Islam gets its way in our free societies. Continue reading this article
