Dutch MP calls for ban on Quran

A Dutch member of parliament has called for the Quran to be
banned in the Netherlands,
describing it as a “fascist book” which calls on people to kill
non-believers and rape women.

Geert Wilders, leader of the far-right Freedom Party, called
for the ban in a letter published in De Volkskrant newspaper. 

In his letter, Wilders compares the Muslim holy book to Mein
Kampf
, Adolf Hitler's autobiography, and said the Quran has “no place
in our constitutional state”.  

“I have been saying this for years: there is no such
thing as a moderate Islam,” Wilders wrote.

Wilders' Freedom Party holds nine seats in the Netherlands'
150 seat parliament. 

Wilders also said several chapters in the Quran
“call on Muslims to oppress, persecute or kill Christians, Jews,
dissidents and non-believers, to beat and rape women and to establish an
Islamic state by force”.

He has warned of a “tsunami of Islamisation” in a country home to 1
million Muslims, and has lived under heavy protection since receiving
death threats from Islamist militants in 2004.

Mr Wilders said an attack over the weekend by two Moroccans and a
Somali on a young Iranian-born politician who heads a Dutch group for
“ex-Muslims” had spurred him to write.

The attack on Ehsan Jami, 22, caused an outcry in the Netherlands,
where the November 2004 murder of Theo Van Gogh, a filmmaker critical
of Islam, by a Dutch-Moroccan Muslim militant led to an anti-Muslim
backlash and exposed social tensions.

Issues of immigration and integration no longer top the political agenda, despite the efforts of Mr Wilders and his allies.

“Allah sees the death penalty as fitting for those who no longer
believe,” Mr Wilders wrote today, adding this view had fuelled the
attack on Jami, now under police protection.

“Ban this wretched book like Mein Kampf is
banned! Send a signal to Jami's attackers and other Islamic radicals that the
Quran cannot be used in the Netherlands
as an inspiration or an excuse for violence,” Wilders said. 

Wilders acknowledged that his plan would not receive
majority support in the Dutch parliament.

“I am fed up with Islam in the Netherlands:
no more Muslim immigrants allowed. I am fed up with the worship of Allah and
Muhammad in the Netherlands:
no more mosques,” his letter concluded.

He has also campaigned to ban Muslim face veils, ban the building of new mosques and halt all Muslim immigration.
