In Holland Friday Geert Wilders is on trail for “Hate Speech” he made his opening statement to the court saying in part:
For more than eleven years, I have been living under death threats. Every day, I am reminded of this. Even today. This morning, I was driven here in a convoy of armored cars, with sirens, flashing lights, and surrounded by bodyguards. And not only today, but every day.
I will be brought home in the same way. Home is a safe-house. My office is a shielded room. And when I have to stand in court, it is here, in a bunker at Schiphol.
For more than eleven years already, I have been paying a heavy price. And I think that you as well as I know why. I am paying that price for the same reason as why I am standing in the dock for the second time. Because I dare to criticize Islam and mention the Moroccan problem…
…Because the problems of which I speak will not go away by keeping silent about them.
Silence is not an option.
Silence is cowardly.
Silence is betrayal.
If I, as the political leader of my party, during an election gathering of my party, am not allowed to say what has been written down in my party platform for a decade, then this is absolute madness and then one has to convict me.
My opinions will not change. And one will not be able to silence me.
I have been deprived of my freedom for over eleven years and the only freedom I still have is my freedom of speech. Nobody will be able to rob me of it.
Mr. Wilders is on trial for sounding the warning against Radical Islam, today in Brussels a louder warning cry was apparent:
At least 31 people have been killed and many seriously injured in attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station.
Twin blasts hit Zaventem airport at 07:00 GMT, killing 11 and injuring 81, Belgium’s health minister said.
Another explosion struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later with 20 people killed, the Brussels mayor said.
If they had struck 24 hours earlier casualty count might have included US Officials and senators.
I traveled to Brussels on March 16, to attend the German Marshall Fund’s Brussels Forum, a meeting of U.S. and European officials, foreign policy experts and journalists, where the fight against terrorism was at the top of the agenda. Two U.S. senators and several Obama administration officials who attended had just passed through the main terminal of the Brussels airport. On Tuesday morning, it was hit by what Belgian authorities described as a suicide attack. At least 26 were killed and many more wounded at the airport, and in a parallel attack on the city’s subway system.
It’s an event that hurts the narrative of the left and the media
Spanish Foreign Secretary José Manuel García Margallo immediately laid the blame with ISIS — also known by its Arabic acronym Daesh.
He said: “Let’s stop pretending, let’s worry about Daesh, which is the enemy.”
Describing the group as a “terrorist cancer”, he said: “We must be aware that as they are hit in Syria and Iraq, they are going to go elsewhere.

Already we see the hashtag #standwithbrussels, let me give those “bravely” tweeting that out a clue:

Oh and “moderate” Islam is playing the role of Spain in World War 2 in this fight. It was those same “moderate” muslims who kept silent when the mastermind of the Paris attacks hid among them for months. They must be made to choose sides, but more importantly the elites and the left of Europe has to be made to choose sides in the war that exists between Radical Islam and the West.
Will they decide to defend themselves or will they continue to prosecute and persecute those who would force them to face reality?
I regret to say I expect Pam Geller to be right:
After these monstrous acts, world leaders proclaim “we are at war” and do nothing. And my colleagues and I continue to be blacklisted and marginalized, despite being right about it all.
The problem with the “kill me last” plan is they eventually get around to killing you but I suspect the MSM will continue to be in denial.
