A tweet from PVV leader Geert Wilders featuring an anti-Islam slogan written in Arabic has drawn the ire of many on the social network.
NL Times The sticker is designed to look like the flag of Saudi Arabia, and says, “Islam is a lie. Mohammed is a crook. The Quran is poison,” reports Hart van Nederland. Wilders tweeted out an email address where the sticker may be ordered for free.
Wilders has told the BBC that he wants to bring down the European Union. Speaking to the station’s Europe Editor Gavin Hewitt in a TV interview that aired, he dubbed Islam an “inferior culture” and said that future Eastern European migrants should stay home. “Indeed, I believe that Islam is an inferior culture,” Wilders said. Mr Wilders recounts how a magazine has placed him in fourth position on an al-Qaeda hit list. It is to underline that he has been more outspoken about Islam that almost any other European politician.
Many responded to Wilders accusing him of being no better than the Nazis, while Twitter user Nimueh asked, “Isn’t this rhetoric a bit old and boring now?” Marina Alings asked if Wilders could “place the anti-Islam sticker on his mouth,” while others asked for a reprint of the anti-Wilders stickers handed out by the group, Anti-Fascistische Actie, in 2010.
