A Salute to Wilders

I’ve managed to see Fitna, though I worry I spent more time on that than Wilders did making it — and I can’t believe the credits took a minute.

It’s as described in the media I read.

An item I didn’t see mentioned is that Wilder’s shows Muslims saluting with arms straight.

Well, at least Wilders managed to avoid making the same mistake as Hecubus.

See the red cross in the middle right? I found instructions on how to spray one of your own from the Lebanese Forces, whose cross it is. They are a Christian organisation and one time ally of Israel. The salute they make in that picture is not a Nazi Salute. And neither is Hezbollah’s.

But to Wilders… It’s worth putting into the film to underline just how evil the Muslims are.


That seems to sum up Wilders’ style. He knows how to push buttons.

I also watched Shism, whose author made clear he was attacking Wilders not Christians.



  1. And there’s nothing new to Wilders’, errr, ‘alarmist’ style. Here’s an ‘alarmist’ quote of Churchill (or whoever he authorised to write in his name):

    From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States)… this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

    All invention is imitation — da Vinci
