Not if I can help it.
Please do take note of his dissembling. The man clearly is pimping for the OIC, whose leader BTW, as I have repeatedly made known on these pages, is an official denier of Islamic inspired and Muslim initiated, anti-Semitism. The dangers of Islam that Dutch politician Geert Wilders talks about, are openly promoted by leading Muslims in their communities, domestic and abroad. This ”analyst” is protecting Islam at all costs, nothing more nothing less.
NOTE: Please do take notice of his disingenuous attempt at painting Wilders as an extremist for demanding that the koran be banned. This is one of the more egregious disinformation/smear attempts against him. He compares the koran (and rightly so) to Hitler’s Mein Kampf, of which the latter is banned due to hate speech laws. According to the very same logic, so to should the koran be banned as well.
Geert Wilders’ hostile attitude towards Islam allows interpreting of fundamentalism, argues Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed (pictured).
– Muslims in the United States have countered radicalization
Geert Wilders, one-eyed opposition to Islam leads him to overlook the important movements in the direction of reform in Islam in recent years, said Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, internationally renowned security analyst.

Geert Wilders recently came out with the book “Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me”.
It is no coincidence that the book comes in the middle of the euro crisis in a situation where høyreekstereme and right radical parties are experiencing increased support, said Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed in the journal New Statesman. Dr. Ahmed is an expert on international security policy and director of the think tank Institute for Policy Research and Development (IPRD).
– With 24 seats in the Dutch parliament in 2010, the Wilders’ Party the third largest and supported statsminster Mark Rutter minority government. In gratitude for the support received Wilders approval for a number of anti-Muslim measures, stricter immigration policy and the burka ban. But when Wilders withdrew support to the government because of the conservation measures proposed in connection with the euro crisis, collapsed it, he writes.
Dr. Ahmed believes Wilders’ Euro-skeptical and save critical agenda has made politician popular because many voters have no confidence that the savings and cuts are a good way out of the crisis. Despite the scandals and resignations within the party, the polls have been good lately. Meanwhile, the Socialists are rising sharply in the Netherlands.
– Enemy of Islam
– But Wilders’ opinions about Muslims are so extreme that they should cause concern for the far right growth as a result of the crisis. The new book of his advocates an umbrella organization that will “fight for freedom against Islam.” The agenda is simple: the Koran must be banned, mosques need to forcibly shut down, taxed hijab, Muslim immigration stopped and potentially dangerous Muslims deported in droves, Dr. Ahmed.
Wilders’ hostile attitude towards Islam makes him unable to see the growing wave of reform in mulismske countries, according to security expert. For example, consider Wilders Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an international organization with 57 member countries, such as a hidden tool for introducing a Muslim caliphate that will “put Sharia law over human rights.”
Dr. Ahmed admits that the OIC is far from perfect, but said Wilders ignores the organization under the leadership of Secretary General Ekmeleddin
Wilders’ opinions about Muslims are so extreme that they should cause concern for the far right growth as a result of the crisis. Ihsanoglu has made important steps over the past seven years, fir to promote reform within Islam.
– In its eagerness to demonize Islam as a Nazi-like “totalitarian political ideology” and “existential threat” Wilders refuses to recognize the progressive reform measures. There is therefore no surprise that Wilders is completely unaware of the American Muslim experience. A study by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security show that the American Muslim community “has been active in preventing radicalization” and that the threats from homegrown terrorists in the starting point was “minimal” and now has dropped even further, he writes.
