Geert Wilders is a Dutch politician protesting the Islamization of the west, particularly in his own country, The Netherlands. He says Islam is not primarily a religion, but a political movement seeking world domination. He is the most threatened politician in the Netherlands and requires constant security around him because of death threats. (Interesting considering the universal mantra that Islam is a religion of peace.)
I've read both pros and cons about Wilders, but his primary political agenda is to protect the judeo-Christian and humanistic roots of Dutch culture, which doesn't seem to me to be such a bad thing. He's been demonized for producing his film on Islam and was actually prevented from entering the UK for a time. As I was researching him today I couldn't help thinking of those who tried to warn the world about the rise of Naziism which, one could argue, was as much a pseudo-religious movement, with Hitler as messiah, as a political movement. Naziism was filled with pagan religious symbols and pseudo religious ceremonies. For example, in the Lebensborns, maternity homes for young unmarried German women breeding the master race, a "naming ceremony" replaced baptism. When too many of the young women snuck into nearby towns for secret christenings, Himmler established a rule prohibiting the women to leave the homes without an SS escort.
Wilders compares the Koran to Mein Kampf. Both books have been used to justify incredible violence against innocent people, both seek world domination through the sword.
The Church fought Islam for a reason when it launched the first crusade which prevented the Muslims from dominating the West. Have the goals of Islam really changed?
