Marked for Death
Fanatics, terrorists, and appeasers have tried everything to silence Geert Wilders, Europes most controversial Member of Parliamentfrom putting him on trial to putting a price on his head. But Wilders refuses to be silencedand one result is the book you have in your hands.
For years, from his native Netherlands, Wilders has sounded the alarm about the relentless spread of Islam in the West. And he has paid a steep personal price, enduring countless death threats and being forced into a permanent state of hiding.
Now, for the first time, Wilders offers a full account of his long battle against the zealots who have already slaughtered his countryman Theo van Goghwhose killer also threatened to murder Wilders himself.
In Marked for Death, Wilders reveals:
- Howand whyliberal politicians, including Barack Obama, downplay the Islamic threat
- The systematic suppression of free speech through lawsuits, prosecutions, threats, and violence meted out against Islams critics
- The untold story: how Islamic groups are redefining human rights to suppress non-Muslims everywhere
- The true, bloody history of Islams spread throughout the world
- How the West can defend itself against an existential enemy determined to conquer the globe
Expelled from Britain, banned from Indonesia, denounced by the UN Secretary General, prosecuted in court for his beliefs, forced into government safe houses, and constantly threatened with death, Geert Wilders is unbowed and unapologetic. Marked for Death is a stark warning about a growing threat to our liberties written by a man who has lost his freedomand would not see the rest of us suffer the same fate.
In the Netherlands, Mr. Wilders foes, whether murderous jihadists or the multicultural establishment, share the same strategic objective—to increase the cost of associating with him beyond that which most people are willing to bear. It is not easy to be Geert Wilders. He has spent almost a decade in a strange, claustrophobic, transient, and tenuous existence little different from kidnap victims or, in his words, a political prisoner. He is under round-the-clock guard because of explicit threats to murder him by Muslim extremists.
Yet hes the one who gets put on trial for incitement....For every independent-minded soul...there are a thousand other public figures who get the message: steer clear of Islam unless you want your life consumed—and steer clear of Wilders if you want to be left in peace.”
—From the foreword by Mark Steyn
