Wow! Geert Wilders is coming to Boston next week. A must-see! Details from Solomonia:
Geert Wilders to speak at
Ahavath Torah Congregation
1179 Central St
Stoughton, MA 02072
February 25, 2009
Controversial Dutch lawmaker and filmmaker Geert Wilders, banned last week from setting foot on British soil, will appear at Ahavath Torah Congregation on February 25th, 2009 from 6:30-7:30pm.
Mr. Wilders, a current member of the Dutch Parliament, is currently facing prosecution in his homeland for his outspoken criticism of radical Islam. For anyone who is interested in discussing the defense of Western Civilization, freedom of speech and the free exchange of ideas and liberty, Mr. Wilders' case should provoke serious thought and attention.
Mr Wilders will present his film Fitna which he describes as "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization". Following the viewing of the film (approximately 15 minutes) Mr Wilders will conduct an open dialog with the audience.
The practice of Islamist Law Fare (also known as Legal Jihad) is equally as dangerous to our liberty and freedom as a hijacked airplane or a suicide bomber, according to Mr. Wilders. Islamists are increasingly using this method of predatory lawsuits to silence free speech around the globe. Though often inconspicuous in media coverage, the results are clear and powerful examples of chilling 1st Amendment rights and bankrupting defendants. Free speech is either allowed to live, or it is stifled one ruling and one country at a time.
Mr. Wilders' visit to Ahavath Torah Congregation is sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition and the Middle East Forum's Legal Project which is currently raising funds for Mr. Wilders' legal defense.
Admission is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. Such checks may be made payable to the Middle East Forum and will be collected during the event.
