Below is the speech by Geert Wilders, Chairman, of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem.

Wilder is scheduled to come to Australia in February 2013. I assume that he will tell us something similar to what he told the Americans. Luckily, we still have freedom of speech in this country, a luxury nonexistent in Islamic countries.

What he says is thought provoking stuff, as well as alarming and sobering; and what he says could well be in store for Australia in the future.

A great number of Australians are getting increasingly apprehensive about what they see is happening in European countries that opened their doors to Muslim immigration. Forming a parallel society, by not integrating and assimilating into the culture of their host countries, is one sticking point. And, the doctrine in the Koran that Muslims should consider Christians and Jews as infidels and should not mix with them and kill them is another. So, the question begs: Can a Muslim who sticks religiously to this dictum become a good Australian?

Some of what Wilders is saying is already manifestly obvious in some suburbs in western Sydney, where non Muslin Australians dare not go.

The Dutch are doing something about their Muslim problems, and to read more about that and, what Canadian Professor Mahfooz Kanwar; a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress said, click here.

I would like to stress that I do not necessarily agree with the sentiments expressed in Wilders speech, but thought it may be of public interest to be elucidated. The Australian public is smart enough to draw their own conclusions. Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, Please send it to every free person that you know, it is so very important.  - Werner

Here is the Speech by Geert Wilders.
Dear friends, Thank you very much for inviting me.

I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe.  Then, I will say a few things about Islam.  To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem ...

The Europe you know is changing.You have probably seen the landmarks, but in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the police as well.  It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children.  Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead.  There are mosques on many street corners.  The shops have signs you and I cannot read.  You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity.  These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics.  These are Muslim neighbour-hoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe.  These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congre-gations than there are in churches.  And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden .  In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.   Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighbourhoods.  Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils
.  In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin .  The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system.
Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers,
on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel .  I could go on forever with stories like this.  Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe.  San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers. 
And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But there are few signs of that.  The Pew Research Centre reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France .  One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks.  The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favour of a worldwide caliphate.  Muslims demand what they call 'respect'.  And this is how we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept Sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey ..

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.   Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators 'settlers'.  Because that is what they are.  They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. 
His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a paedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time.  Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.
  Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life.  Islam means 'submission'.  Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is Sharia.  If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. 
The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel .  First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defence.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia . Israel is simply in the way.  The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel.  It is a war against the West.  It is jihad.   Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.  Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favour of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behaviour, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.  They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can get Israel , they can get everything.  So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'.

In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a danger greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing.  The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts.  My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All throughout Europe , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. 

My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe 's children in the same state in which it was offered to us.  We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams.  Future generations would never forgive us.  We cannot squander our liberties.  We simply do not have the right to do so. We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

Since I enjoy a lemon drink with honey everyday, the following article about frozen lemons caught my eye and, it makes sense to me; using the whole lemon instead only squeezing them and waste half of it. Lemon peels contain a spectrum of vitamins, minerals and fibre that can give your menu a nutritional boost and flavour. This article is supplementary to a previous posting. Start your day with a lemon.

Boost your health with a lemon, they alkalise your system which contributes to good health.. Although lemon is thought of as an acidic fruit, it is highly alkalizing once it goes into your body.  This means that it helps your body to be in a state that is more balanced and health-creating.

The "lemon" is used to mean a faulty or defective item. A typical use in Australia is to describe a second hand car that, once bought, turns out to have serious faults, as a "lemon". I’m at a loss why this delicious fruit packed with goodness is associated with faulty goods? – Werner

Mores interesting links about lemon, just click on them.

Watch a practical demonstration.
And 22 Uses for Lemon Peels.
Why is Lemon Water Alkaline?

 Amazing frozen lemons! All it a frozen lemon.

Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the
entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple; place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky.... the list is endless.

All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting.

But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the wholelemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating 

toxic elements in the body.

So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your 

meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live 
 healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret! Better late than never, right? 
The surprising benefits of lemon! Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumours.

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types.

Some say it isvery useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant that combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating:
it comes from one of the
largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells. So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your whole body will love you for it!!!!!

If life throws you a lemon - make lemonade. - Joan Collins

Alan Jones’ foot in the mouth.

I totally disagree with the appalling comments made by Broadcaster Alan Jones that PM Julia Gillard’s father died of shame because she is telling lies. Yes, she told a big lie by saying, “There will be no carbon tax under a government I lead” and then reneging on it. However, this is no reason for Alan Jones to make such disparaging comments. Julia Gillard is our Prime Minister whether we like her or despise her; she deserves respect.

Telling fibs is part of a politician’s work manual,
this is nothing surprising. Those denigrating comments will be counter productive and will go against the Liberal Party, who should have censured Jones immediately.

Alan Jones apologising is like wanting to unscramble an egg.
In other words, if you hit somebody on the head with a cricket bat and then apologise, that will not take the pain away.

While the comments by Jones were a hit under the belt, and well over the top,
we have to give him credit where credit is due. Jones is involved in many good causes, like for instance, bringing into the open the catastrophic effects of coal seam gas exploration and the disastrous effect it has on our food producing farmers. He has also justifiably chastised the duopoly of Woolworths and Coles - who are destroying our farmers with their actions.
Now this, in my opinion, is more significant, than the unfortunate uttering by Alan Jones.  See also my previous posting. (Scroll down!)

The old adage:
“Make sure your brain is engaged before putting mouth in gear,”
is perhaps what Jones should adhere to.

Following is my own story. Perhaps Alan Jones could learn something from the moral at the bottom of my story. - Werner

The difficulty I had with saying, I’m sorry.
By Werner Schmidlin
When I was ten years old I was given a pocket knife for my birthday – it was the "In thing" in those days. To test the sharpness of this knife I went to a paddock full with fruit trees belonging to an elderly lady, and sliced some bark off one of the trees. I could have done the same on trees belonging to us, but I was smart enough not to use one of our trees as "sharpness tester," simple, because I would have been a suspect with my new knife, and I knew the consequences that would have come my way.

Unbeknown to me however, I was observed testing my knife by two of the neighbour’s kids and they reported my activity to the schoolteacher. The following day I was hauled before the teacher in front of the class and was "Pauline Hanson-ed’ – “Please explain!”
I could see that I it was useless to deny the tree-bark-slicing job, there were two witnesses against me, and I pleaded guilty. The Judge (teacher) said to me, I give you two options.

"One: You go and seal the wounds of that tree with wax, and then bandage it. Then you go to the old lady and apologise and say SORRY. I’ll give you one day to fix the tree up and one week to see the lady and say SORRY." He continued, "If you have not accomplished these two "assignments," a second option will come into play – I bring the matter to the attention of your parents". In those days parents and teachers were powerful forces, for whom one had great respect. (I wish this would still be the case today).

After school that day, I quietly went about my task and fixed up that tree. Then the hardest task, the apology, was in front of me. I made countless attempts to go to the lady and say SORRY, but I got no further than the front door of her house, with my finger bent and ready to knock on the door. But each time, I could not muster the courage to move my hand and knock on the door – and I went away - to try again later.

The seven-day deadline was approaching rapidly, and one the seventh day, finally, with a tremendous mental effort I mustered enough courage to knock at the lady’s front door. The lady opened the door (I can still see it today) and I said to her that I damaged one of her trees, that I had fixed it up and that I was SORRY. The lady smiled and said thank you for letting her know and that it was nice of me to say “Sorry.” I left with a good feeling of having done the right thing and as a reward a tremendous weight had come off my shoulders.

The moral of this story is: Not only did I learn a valuable lesson, but also, I swore to myself never ever to get myself into a situation when I would be required to say “I’m SORRY.” The lesson was: To think things through, always asking myself would I have to say "I’M SORRY" after saying or doing something. Only after careful weighing out every angle would I do or say something, and this principle is still with me today.

My thought for today. Werner
Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them. Unknown
