The political party of Geert Wilders (PVV) has called openly for a pre-emptive attack of western countries on Iran. Just recently Geert Wilders was in Israel to support the removal of the Palestinian people from the West Bank. Twenty percent of the Dutch support the anti-Muslim views of the PVV and Geert Wilders. The “gentleman” from the PVV who called out for an attack on the Iranian people is a new member of Dutch parliament Wim Kortenoeven. Unsurprisingly he was a former memeber of CIDI, a Likud affiliate in the Netherlands to support Israel’s policy of occupation of Palestinian territory and warfare on neighboring states.
In the meantime, the geopolitical situation in the Middle East is rapidly changing, to the detriment of the West. Iran and its neighbors, Turkey (a NATO member and would-be member of the European Union) and Syria, with Hizballah and Hamas in the back seat, are forming a Shia-Sunni strategic coalition that stretches from Pakistan to the eastern borders of Europe.
The Turkish accession to this coalition, a keystone in every respect, has happened relatively recently, but it is determined and should frighten the life out of European policymakers. The first target of the members of the coalition may indeed be Israel, with the treacherous Mavi Marmara incident underlining the Erdogan regime’s true colors and intentions. However, this Islamist coalition is also a threat to the stability of the Gulf states, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to the security of Europe and the United States. And, it will certainly blunt the effects of American and European warnings to Tehran and hamper sanctions.

Pam Geller – Anders Gravers – Geert Wilders
Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), was created by anti-Muslim bloggers and activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. It was born out of its parent organization Stop the Islamization of Europe (SIOE), an organization led by Anders Gravers (also a leader in SIOA), of whom Media Matters wrote.
SIOA’s declared mission is to educate Americans ..
“about the threat that Islamic doctrine and those who support it present to our freedoms, and the future of our democracy and country.” The organizers call themselves “scholar warriors/ideological warriors in the cause of American freedom and Constitutional government,” as well as in “the defense of… our society of liberty, knowledge, and human decency.”
The declared mission gives us a scent of the absurdity that is SIOA, what else can “the threat of Islamic doctrine and those who support it” mean except “Muslims.” In other words the groups mission is to educate Americans about the “threat that Muslims present to freedom.”
