When I was asked to write a foreword to Geert Wilders’ new book, my first reaction, to be honest, was to pass. Mr Wilders lives under 24/7 armed guard because significant numbers of motivated people wish to kill him, and it seemed to me, as someone who’s attracted more than enough homicidal attention over the years, that sharing space in these pages was likely to lead to an uptick in my own death threats. Who needs it? Why not just plead too crowded a schedule and suggest the author try elsewhere? I would imagine Geert Wilders gets quite a lot of this.
And then I took a stroll in the woods...
Steyn, from his introduction to Marked For Death
Fanatics, terrorists, and appeasers have tried everything to silence Geert Wilders — from putting him on trial to putting a price on his head. But Wilders refuses to be silenced — and one result is this book, in which Mark's introduction sets the scene for one man's remarkable story and an awful warning of what awaits the rest of the west.
Wilders, the leader of the Netherlands' third largest party and the man who just brought down the Dutch government, has been for years a lonely voice among a craven European establishment sounding the alarm about the Islamization of the west. He has paid a steep personal price, enduring countless death threats and being forced to live in hiding in one safe house after another. But his enemies, from all sides, have failed to silence him.
Now, for the first time, Wilders offers a full account of his long battle against the zealots who have already slaughtered his countryman Theo van Gogh — whose killer also threatened to murder Wilders himself. Expelled from Britain, banned from Indonesia, denounced by the UN Secretary-General, prosecuted in court for his beliefs, forced into government safe houses, and constantly threatened with death, Geert Wilders is unbowed and unapologetic. This hardcover book, with a sharp and trenchant introduction by Mark,is a stark warning about the loss of our liberties written by a man who knows how that feels — and would not see the rest of us suffer the same fate.
Marked For Death brings together in one book a transatlantic pairing of two of the west's most prominent champions for our civilization's core liberties.
