THE HAGUE, 01/04/11 - Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders wants a public debate on the "real nature and character of Mohammed." Such a debate can give insight and support to Muslims worldwide to leave Islam, says Wilders in an article in newsmagazine HP/De Tijd.
Wilders maintains that Islam is highly dangerous and that this becomes clear from reading the Koran, but also by looking at the character of Mohammed. "The historic Mohammed was the harsh leader of a band of robbers from Medina, who plundered, raped and murdered without scruples. The sources describe orgies of savagery in which hundreds of people had their throats cut, hands and feet hacked off, eyes put out and whole tribes wiped out. . . When we are confronted today with the madness of Islamic terrorists, it is not difficult to discover where this madness comes from,"
The debate on Mohammed is necessary, Wilders claims, because those who want to escape from the grip of Islam and Mohammed may pay for this with their life. "It is time that we help these people by unmasking Mohammed."
Wilders quotes the Iranian ex-Muslim Ali Sina, founder of an organisation for Islamic apostates. Sina called the Prophet "a narcissist, a paedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, sexually obsessed, a sect leader, a lunatic, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a robber."
This is a timely article which coincides with the news that Nezar Hindawi must be released, 25 years after his failed attempt to blow up an air liner. His story resonates beyond the simple details: he struck up an affair with an Irish woman, promised to marry her, seduced her and she became pregnant with his child. Then, offereing to marry her 'in Palestine' put her and this unborn child on a flight carrying a bomb as big as Lockerbie and a detonator. His own fiancee, his own child. No story has ever better illustrated the moral compass of Islam than this one. Mohammed has indeed inspired a truly chlling value system
