Wilders’ anti-Islam book set for US launch next April

Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam Freedom Party, is currently working on a book about the history of Islam. Press agency Novum has announced that the book will be launched in the US in late April 2012 and then published in other countries.

The work will examine the “true nature of Islam” and the worldwide battle against Islamisation. The populist politician claims Islam is not a religion, but an ideology: “An ideology of hatred, of destruction, of conquest. It is my strong conviction that Islam is a threat to Western values, to freedom of speech, to the equality of men and women, of heterosexuals and homosexuals, of believers and unbelievers.”

The book on Islam will be Mr Wilders’ second major publication. In 2005, he wrote a short autobiography, entitled Kies voor vrijheid (Choose Freedom).
