Wilders: It is five minutes to twelve for the survival of Europe. It is time for harsh measures. If they break the law or indulge in sharia or jihad; send them home the same day.

  Kurt Strand - Geert Wilders

Wilders is to speak at The Free Press Society's (Trykkefrihedsselskabet) free speech conference Sunday June 14, 2009. Participants are apart from Wilders amongst others Wafa Sultan, Diana West and Ann Fishman. Images and situation report (so far only in Danish) live coverage at Snaphanen.

The conference will be held in the Danish Parliament building Christiansborg in Copenhagen.

Extreme security measures are in place in order to protect Geert Wilders, who is under constant threat from islamists and left wing extremist lunatic 'lone wolves' such as Volkert Van der Graaf who murdered the Dutch patriot and adversary of Islam Pim Fortuyn.

The danger of a lone gunman is ever looming, but also actions from organized islamic and extreme left wing groups which pose a growing threat to our democratic institutions and the rule of law can not be ruled out.

How much of a free speech advocate is Wilders really?

There's no doubt that Wilders is a patriot who wants to counter the onslaught of Islam in Europe. But how much does Geert Wilders actually support freedom of speech? His proposal to ban the Koran has been cause for speculation about his position as a self appointed free speech advocate. Will we get answers to some of the basic questions concerning that subject at the free speech conference in Copenhagen today?

EJC: Geert Wilders' Freedom Party, the Danish People's Party, the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ), Hungarian Jobbik, and the British National Party which all made surprisingly big gains in the recent European Parliament elections, were demonized as right wing radical, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, racist etc. by the European Jewish Congress. In a letter to the EU, the Jewish organization demanded more legislation against opinions it does not approve of.

The Danish People's Party (Dansk Folkeparti) was also on the list, but was taken off the list after Danish Jews complained, while Wilders' extremely pro-Jewish and pro-Israel Freedom Party so far remains. Much more:

So far I have found no comments from Geert Wilders on the actions of the European Jewish Congress.

No comments are known either on Wilders' position on the proposal of his former party member VVD chairman Mark Rutte, to expand freedom of speech, which would include decriminalization of revisionism (often hatefullly described as 'holocaust denial') and lifting the ban on Adolf Hitlers book 'Mein Kampf'.

Translation / transcript of the programme Knevel & Van den Brink where Mark Rutte first mentioned the intended expansion of free speech, including decriminalizing revisionism, which caused furious reactions amongst others from Jewish groups.
