Dutch Prosecution Asks Court to Find Wilders Not Guilty of Inciting Hatred; Updated with Wilders’ Final Remarks at Amsterdam Trial

06/01/2011 1 comment

If Dutch prosecutors in the Geert Wilders trial can actually employ a bit of sound logic and reason, let’s hope that the judges sitting on the case also feel inspired to do the same.  After all, who are the ones here that really need to be tried for inciting hatred?  Brave souls like Geert Wilders who speak the truth about the global Jihadi nature of radical Islam (and who was subsequently banned from entering the UK for saying out loud what millions of people were already thinking), or those who spew hatred behind a cloak of ‘religion’ and call for Geert Wilder’s beheading (yet are still permitted entry)?

Update June 23, 2011:  ‘A Victory for Freedom of Speech’: Dutch Populist Geert Wilders Acquitted of ‘Hate’ Speech – “Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders was acquitted of inciting hatred of Muslims in a court ruling on Thursday that may strengthen his political influence and exacerbate tensions over immigration policy. The case was seen by some as a test of free speech in a country which has a long tradition of tolerance and blunt talk, but where opposition to immigration, particularly from Muslim or predominantly Muslim countries, is on the rise.” Read more.

“The public prosecution department on Wednesday called for PVV leader Gert Wilders to be found not guilty of inciting hatred, as it tied up its case against the MP.

Prosecutors say Wilders’ remarks are critical of Islam which is not the same as inciting hatred against muslims themselves.

Earlier in the day the prosecutors said Wilders’ should be found not guilty of insulting a group because he has not stated any conclusions about muslims. Instead he has merely criticised their religion, the prosecutors said.

Reluctance

The decision to call on judges to find Wilders not guilty follows on from fact the department did not want to take the PVV leader to court in the first place.

However, it was forced to do so by the appeal court following protests from a number of ethnic minority groups.

The final charge against Wilders, incitement to discrimination, will be discussed later today.” Source – DutchNews.nl.

Islam a Threat to Western Freedom: Wilders

By Jessica Hume – “The presence of Muslims in Canada threatens the country’s freedoms and democracy, and only if immigration from Islamic countries is suspended can the cultural deterioration of the country be stopped, controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders told a packed house Monday night in Toronto.

‘Our Western culture is far superior to Islamic culture,’ Mr. Wilders said. ‘And only once we are convinced of this will we be able to defend our civilization.’

The event, held at the Canadian Christian College in north Toronto, marked Mr. Wilders’ second stop on a three-city tour. The visit, his first to Canada, is sponsored by the International Free Press Society.” Read more.
