Contrite convert: Former Geert Wilders colleague apologizes for past ‘blasphemy’

In 2008, Dutch politician Geert Wilders and members of his Freedom Party co-produced “Fitna,” a short film that portrayed Islam as a violent, terroristic religion. Wilders came under heavy fire from Muslims and liberals for his “hate crimes,” but fellow party member Arnoud van Doorn stuck by him — until recently.

Earlier this year, van Doorn experienced an ideological turnaround and converted to Islam.

And, as he proudly displayed on Twitter today, he has officially apologized for blaspheming Islam and the Prophet Mohammed:

Former Dutch Islamophobe and a former leading member of far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ party Arnoud Van Doorn visited the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah to pray and say sorry for becoming part of a blasphemous film.

Doorn was among the Freedom Party leaders who produced the blasphemous film, Fitna. Last month he reverted to Islam after an extensive study about the religion and the Prophet (peace be upon him).

He said that the worldwide outrage against the film made him study about the Prophet (pbuh) and that eventually led to his conversion.

If Muslims on Twitter are to be believed, all is now right with the world:

We can’t help but wonder what Wilders thinks of all this.

  • Garth Haycock

    So, does he now condone what the terrorists do in the name of Allah?

    • BlahBlah

      BRB Lemme Google translate from Terrorese what he said.

  • Jefferson Tea Party

    So, he’s sold his soul for a cancellation of his Fatwa? Good for him, may he rot in hell.

    • DanStlMo

      or is it a possible long term infiltration?

  • BlahBlah

    I guess we’re looking at the new Current TV anchor.

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Never EVER give in to the primitive savages.

  • Josephine (D)

    How is producing a negative film on Islam a “hate crime”? Or did Wilders do something else that was anti-Islam?

    Personally, if I were Wilders, I’d give van Doorn a chance to show me how he acts regarding his new faith. If he’s a nutjob, drop him like a hot potato.

    • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

      He’s a ‘nut-job’.

  • descolada9

    Well, he is rather close to Stockholm…

      That was hilarious, good one!

  • JackD

    Hopefully this guy is going undercover to expose the hateful invaders and what they are doing to Western Europe – but I doubt it.

  • grais

    To each his own.
    I do find it kinda funny though, that he was an ardent member of a far-right party, and now he describes himself on his twitter page as “Liberal”

  • Achilles

    I hope Allah gives him a warm greeting in hell.

  • Tantalus XVI

    I’m guessing these people believe they are on the winning team, and that their names will be on “the list” when its time to head to the bunkers. The movie tropes say those people usually die the most violently.

  • bo1921

    He probably got tired of looking over his shouder. You know, for when the knife comes.

  • ballsack_bob

    Clear sign that van Doorn has brain cancer. He’s all mixed up in his head. His wife is heartbroken that he’s dumped her for a camel. His coworkers are heartbroken that he’s quit bathing.

  • Dominic

    When one converts to Islam one stops using the cognitive part of the brain.

  • CombatDiver

    The prophet muhammad was a pedophile. That is all.

    • PChandler

      … and an intolerant, bigoted, sociopathic, racist, misogynist, imperialist crusader!

  • Rosie

    An extreme shift in both religion and politics. Guess this means he’s officially lost it.

  • Joe W.

    The pervert just wants a go at the 72 virgins……

  • KansasGirl

    It’s gotta be hard for Doorn to walk around without a spine.

  • Deborah Hallsted

    If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em? What a complete idiot.

  • Jayve

    May allah bless you dhimmi, piss be upon you.

    • PChandler

      Pork be upon him and pork be upon Pedohammed.

  • NRPax

    Just for amusement, I ran his statement through Google Translate. Part of it says that Muhammad is Allah’s slave. Oh look! My shocked face! -:-|

    • Bosniac

      Not Muhammad… We all are his slaves…

      • NRPax

        I’m not a slave to anyone. God gave us free will and I choose to put it to good use.

        • Bosniac

          Yes… The Qur’an said that too… If you believe in God and you are a christian… Let’s look it this way… God mad the first men… So He made you… He owns you… He decides when you die (he sends the angel of death)… After you die… He decides where will you go… Heaven or hell… He controls you… Slaves also have their opinions an decisions.. they can rebel or obey.. But in the end other control their lives… So tell me what are you if not a slave… I admit… It sounds a little bit ugly… But so it is… Or can you tell me an another word for thant…

          • NRPax

            God decides when I am to be born and when I am to die. What I do in between is my choice, for good and evil. And yes, the term slave sounds ugly because it is ugly.

          • Bosniac

            He decides when you are born… Where you will born… When you’ll die… Where will you go after you die…
            Like i said slaves can also do what they want (as you can) they can obey their master… Or the can rebel (as you can) but in the end other control their lives (as God controls yours)… So be real… We all are some kind of slaves 😉

  • John (it true me am)

    Anyone else ever just floored by the Islamic arrogance in using the word “revert”? Considering it was the last of the 3 Abrahamic religions founded..

  • Francophile Dawg

    Enjoy Hell, Arnoud

  • ClinkinKY

    Does this mean the fatwa calling for his beheading is now rescinded? (Just kidding…I think)

  • Bosniac

    One question… Did anyone of you guys read the Qur’an… A single page… Anybody held the Qur’an in his hands??? I guess not… And yet you talk about islama and the Holy Qur’an…

    • NRPax

      Yes, I have. And yes, we talk about Islam and the Koran because we are free to do so. Any other questions I can help you with?

      • Bosniac

        Ok… You have… But the others… I just can’t understand… How can somebody talk about something he/she dont know anything about… I just would like people to read the Qur’an, Bible, Tora etc…. And then they should say this is good religion or that is a shiti religion… You just cant judge the whole religion becouse two people blew themself with bombs

        • NRPax

          No, but when you see a pattern of people blowing themselves and others up with bombs and their religion is the common denominator, you are led to believe that the religion might be the problem.

          And when members of said religion justify bombings, it reinforces that thought.

          • Bosniac

            You said you read the Qur’an… Can you please tell me where is written that you shold blow yourself up… There are proofs that 9.11 and boston are conspiracy… Just to attack arabs becouse the oil… And what would you do.. If other people came to your land an killed civilians.. Your family… Burned your house… Would you let them do that..

          • NRPax

            The very fact that you believe in 9/11 conspiracies and Boston conspiracies is all I need to know about you. I have no desire to listen to your fantasies or read about your demented worldview any longer.

          • Bosniac

            Good arguments man… You beat me… 😉 people gave proofs for that… 😉

        • PChandler

          “… becouse two people blew themself with bombs”—

          Of course, this is the first time Muslims commit a violent act.

          Tras de ladrón, bufón.

        • PChandler

          Cool ad hominem, bro!

    • PChandler

      Yes, i read the german version of the Quran: Mein Kampf.

      I had to, it was a college assignment and i felt dirty afterwards.

      • Bosniac

        OK.. You just said enough… 😉 you just said all about yourself 😉

      • Bosniac

        Why dont you tell me just one dirty thing you raed…

        • PChandler

          One? How about three:

          “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — 9:29

          “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens…” — 47:4

          “Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.” — 98:6

          Want more? read it for yourself

          • Bosniac

            Fight them… Not kill them… You can fight them with words and arguments… You cant read the Qur’an as a unit… You have to understand it like a whole thing.. Did you read the part where it sais… If you kill a inocent human… It is same as you would kill the whole humanity… Muslims dont kill people if they dont want to convert to islam… The church vatican.. Did it 😉

          • PChandler

            “The church vatican.. Did i”—

            Cool psychological projection, bro! No religion but Islam punishes apostasy…. and it punishes it with death!

            Oh, and BTW. I’m an atheist. You lost the game before starting it! tsk, tsk, tsk…

          • Bosniac

            Ahap… Right… From x till xv century… The pope ordered non catolic people to convert to catolicism… Those who didnt want where killed… 😉

            Nope… Wrong… Islam dont punishes… God punishes… Who am I to judge people… And decide who needs to live and who needs to die?? Like i said… Killing a inocent human is like killing the whole humanity…

            Sorry man… But if you’re a atheist you’re a moron…

          • Bosniac

            2nd part… I dont undersan what is dirty… It says that you shouldn’t kill… You should stop the war… Not go and kill every unbeliever…

            3rd part… I again dont understand what is dirty here… Ofcourse that non muslim will burn.. Lets imagin it said… You dont have to be muslim… And you will go to heaven… Tell me… What would be the point of the religion then

          • PChandler

            “I dont undersan what is dirty”—

            Of course you don’t.

          • Bosniac

            Not killing and saving as many lives as possible is “dirty”… Your right…
            But i understand you… You love mein kampf and you hate people you even dont know…
            Dont worry ill pray for you… May Allah show you the right way 😉

  • PChandler

    He “apologized” for Wilders who hasn’t done anything to anyone. When is he, and other Muslims, going to apologize for what their comrades did in Boston?.

    Tras de ladrón, bufón.

    • al fonso

      Boston explosion? Your people did it to your own people.

  • PChandler

    “And, as he proudly displayed on Twitter today, he has officially apologized for blaspheming Islam and the Prophet Mohammed:”—

    And when is he going to apologized for the crimes committed by Pedohammed and his henchmen during the Muslim crusades that still exist today in Nigeria, Philippines, Thailand Somalia, Russia-Caucasus, Chechnya-, Kenya, Burma, Tanzania, Malawi, Mali, India, China-Xinjiang-… etc. ?.

    De nuevo. Tras de ladrón, bufón.
