[…] Of course all our readers have already noticed what happened last Thursday. But could you perhaps describe how your impression was?
Certainly. I think there were around a thousand “Antifa” demonstrators with Muslims joined in with them, and a small group of people in our crowd. Many people didn’t come because they heard that there would be danger. And then there were about 500 police. But they didn’t really do much to protect us from the fascists. The fascists were throwing bottles, and ice, and excrement, and eggs. They were crashing onto the stage as we were speaking. But I think it was a great victory because we showed that we were not going to be frightened, we were not going to be intimidated, and we were not going to curtail our activities because of them. And so they are on notice now: We are never going to give up, we are never going to give in, and we are never going to surrender! […]
I have heard that you are now writing a book entitled “Did Mohammed exist?” So, do you have doubts about that?
Yes, actually I do. This is a question that came to my attention several years ago. I remember having a very detailed discussion with the great Islamic scholar Ibn Warraq in which he was arguing that Mohammed did not exist. And I was arguing that he did, on the basis of his having been a very coherent character, somebody that it would be hard to imagine he could have been fictional. And also there were embarrassing elements of his life that Muslims seemed to be embarrassed about and that they tried to explain away. It seemed hard to believe that they would invent these things, for any reason. But the more I looked into the question, the more I have seen, while researching for this book, that actually all the stories about Mohammed seem to have been invented for various political or religious reasons — even the embarrassing ones. The entire religion was constructed in order to justify the political conquests that the Arabs were making and to unify their new empire. One of the most telling evidences of this is that although their conquests started in the 630s, it’s not until the 690s that there is any mention in any of the artefacts that they left behind: coins, inscriptions, anything. No mention of Mohammed, Quran or Islam. And so, one would think that if they had come storming out of the desert holding the Quran and energized by the teachings of Mohammed, surely they might have mentioned this in all that time. This is a very important exploration. I hope to make it clear in this book, because it emphasizes that Islam is fundamentally a political ideology, and only secondarily a religion. It was in the first place a political ideology and system, and the religion was then developed to accompany that and to give it a foundation.[…]
If we look to Germany again, there is a party called “DIE FREIHEIT”, founded from Mr. RenÃ© Stadtkewitz. In The Netherlands, there is the PVV from Mr. Geert Wilders. In several other European countries, similar Liberty Parties have yet been established. Did you observe this development? And what is your opinion about the possibilities and chances for the future?
These parties give me great hope that Europe is not dead, that Eurabia is not a reality and never will be, and that European people will reassert their freedoms and the human rights that are threatened by Islamic law. I have great respect for Mr. Stadtkewitz. I had the great honour of meeting him several years ago when I spoke in Berlin. I am very happy that he is founding this party. It’s urgently needed, and I wish it all success.
I have heard that Mr. Stadtkewitz also invited you to join his party”s big conference about Islam and Integration on September 3rd 2011, together with Mr. Geert Wilders and Mr. Oskar Freysinger from SVP, Switzerland. So may I ask: can you already confirm that we will see you there again?
Yes! I am very honoured to come to Berlin on September 3rd! I have to re-arrange a few things with my schedule, but I will do so! I would be greatly honoured to be on the stage with Mr. Wilders, Mr. Freysinger and Mr. Stadtkewitz. I look forward to this meeting as the initiation of a new international solidarity movement that will truly fight for freedom and the dignity of all human beings!…
