Geert Wilders and the Dutch Republic

Geert Wilders”€™ courage, charisma, strength of character and intelligence are not in question”€”and he is obviously right to point out the danger posed by the recrudescence of Europe’s historic enemy. But brave though he may be, by attacking the Koran so intemperately and by failing to acknowledge that there are moderate Muslims whose support could be co-opted, Wilders may actually be uniting rather than dividing Muslims. And although it makes sense to couch our current critique in the political terminology of the hour, in the long term can Islamic eschatology really be combated by appeals to bloodless “€œhuman rights”€? If we are successfully to avert Eurabia, we must first rediscover our own heritage and reexamine our present presumptions. Only then will we be able to offer a fuller, more positive vision for the post-Islamic Europe we all desire.
