Geert Wilders: kicking ass and taking names in L.A.

I just finished watching video footage of Geert Wilders' California appearance. He spoke at the David Horowitz Freedom Center on April 4, 2009, and I have to say he was even more on point than when I had the honor to hear him speak in Washington, DC back in February.

Some excerpts:

The first thing everybody needs to know about Islam is the importance of the Quran. As you probably know, the Quran calls for submission for hatred for violence for murder for terrorism and for war. The Quran calls upon Muslims to kill non-Muslims. The Quran describes Jews as monkeys and pigs. And the biggest problem is that the Quran is to be considered as Allah's personal words, with orders that need to be fulfilled regardless of the place or the time.


The second important thing everybody needs to know to understand Islam is the importance of the so-called Prophet Mohammed. His behavior is an example for all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Well let me tell you the truth about this so-called "prophet." Mohammed indeed was a warlord, he was a conqueror, he was a pedophile and he was a mass-murderer. Islamic tradition tells us how he married and consummated [with] the young girl Aisha before she reached the age of 10 years old. How he fought in battles, how he murdered his enemies, how he slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. And for millions of Muslims the Quran and the life of Mohammed are not ancient history but are an inspiration.

Amen. You can get a feel for the entire evening at David Horowitz TV, including speeches by Robert Spencer and David Horowitz, the short film Fitna in its entirety, and the Q & A session after Wilders speech.
