23 01 2009

There are a lot of people who are up in arms about this. A show of anger and support that is quite heartening to see. People aren’t taking this lying down.

Here are some of the links from around the blogosphere and the journosphere that I was able to find, that people referred to me, and which were brought to my attention due to the wondrous invention of the Google email alert.

Via the UK Times Online – Anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders faces trial over controversial films, by David Charter:

The limits of free speech and Dutch tolerance are to be tested in a court case after judges ruled yesterday that a right-wing MP who compared the Koran to Mein Kampf should be put on trial for inciting hatred and discrimination.

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), will face charges for his outspoken anti-Islamic comments and his film Fitna, which juxtaposed the Koran and terrorist attacks including the September 11, 2001, attacks and the London Tube and bus bombings on July 7, 2005.

Mr Wilders said that it was a black day and an attack on freedom of expression after the Amsterdam appeals court overturned a public prosecutor’s decision not to pursue a case.

Gerard Spong, a lawyer who joined Islamic groups in pushing for the prosecution, said: “This is a happy day for all followers of Islam who do not want to be tossed on the garbage dump of Nazism.”
