‘Girt’ Wilders on al Qaeda death list

Dutch anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders is included on an apparent al Qaeda death list, according to RTL news on Friday.

‘Girt Wilders’ is in fourth place on the pastiche film poster, which also includes Danish newspaper editor Carsten Juste, responsible for publishing cartoons about Mohammed, and other anti-Islam campaigners. Dutch academic Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who now lives in the US, is in 10th place.

The poster, apparently published on a jihadist website, includes the slogan ‘Yes we can’, made famous by US president Barack Obama and the text ‘a bullet a day can keep the infidels away’. This is a play on the English proverb ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’.


A spokesman for the Dutch counter terrorism bureau NCTb told RTL news the circulation of death lists is a popular al Qaeda tactic.

Also on Friday, Wilders’ PVV published a pamphlet outlining the party’s ‘resistance’ to government policy. In the document, Wilders says the current government is reducing the Netherlands to ruin by its cuts.

The party plans to launch a nationwide ‘resistance tour’ to gather support for its position.
