Marked for Death Fanatics, terrorists, and appeasers have tried everything to silence Geert Wilders, Europe's most controversial Member of Parliament--from putting him on trial to putting a price on his head. But Wilders refuses to be silenced--and one result is the book you have in your hands. For years, from his native Netherlands, Wilders has sounded the alarm about the relentless spread of Islam in the West. And he has paid a steep personal price, enduring countless death threats and being forced into a permanent state of hiding. 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. In Marked for Death, Wilders reveals: How--and why--liberal politicians, including Barack Obama, downplay the Islamic threatThe systematic suppression of free speech through lawsuits, prosecutions, threats, and violence meted out against Islam's criticsThe untold story: how Islamic groups are redefining human rights to suppress non-Muslims everywhereThe true, bloody history of Islam's spread throughout the worldHow the West can defend itself against an existential enemy determined to conquer the globe 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. Marked for Death is a stark warning about a growing threat to our liberties written by a man who has lost his freedom--and would not see the rest of us suffer the same fate.

A member of the Dutch Parliament since 1998, Geert Wilders is the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands. Since 2004, he has been living under round-the-clock police protection due to death threats from extremist Muslims. In 2008, he attracted international attention when he was taken to court over "Fitna," a documentary he filmed that explores Islamic terrorism and the spread of Islam in the Netherlands. Mr. Wilders now travels the world in defense of liberty and freedom of expression.

I guess any book that discusses Islam is going to be heavy going, but I found this very difficult to complete. It has interesting parts, and you get a sense of where it's going with the whole "Muslims are taking over the world" theory, but a lot of it is so over the top I found it quite boring.
Back cover copy
"In the Netherlands, Mr. Wilders' foes, whether murderous jihadists or the multicultural establishment, share the same 'strategic objective'--to increase the cost of associating with him beyond that which most people are willing to bear. It is not easy to be Geert Wilders. He has spent almost a decade in a strange, claustrophobic, transient, and tenuous existence little different from kidnap victims or, in his words, a political prisoner. He is under round-the-clock guard because of explicit threats to murder him by Muslim extremists. Yet he's the one who gets put on trial for incitement....For every independent-minded soul...there are a thousand other public figures who get the message: steer clear of Islam unless you want your life consumed--and steer clear of Wilders if you want to be left in peace." --From the foreword by Mark Steyn
