Dutch MP faces trial for hate speech

2 10 2010

From the Sydney Morning-Herald:

Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders, set to become a shadow partner of the next coalition government, goes on trial in Amsterdam on Monday for inciting hatred against Muslims.

The controversial politician with his signature shock of blonde-dyed hair risks up to a year in jail or a 7,600-euro ($A10,700) fine, according to prosecutors, for calling Islam “fascist” and likening the Koran to Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

“This is about freedom of speech,” Wilders’ lawyer Bram Moszkowicz said.

// “My client believes that in the Netherlands, one must be able to say whatever one wants, barring incitement to violence.”

Wilders, 47, will stand trial on five charges of giving religious offence to Muslims and inciting hatred and discrimination against Muslims and people of non-western immigrant origin, particularly Moroccans.

Continents and Millenniums Apart, Truth has to prove itself again.
Geert is Great, I wish him to visit Bharat (India)

I don’t know how many people know the legend, Sita’s Agni Pariksha.

When Lord Ram came back to his Kingdom after 14 years of exile, one(just one) citizen doubted her integrity, as she was kidnapped by Ravan a Demon King and Sita was in his custody for some time.

Sita even being Queen of Ayodhya was put to trial, to prove her innocence.

She stood the Trial and was proved innocent.

Gutless Greet Wilders and His Racist Supporters Are Megabyte Nazis Indeed!
For more:

Further to Gutless Greet Wilders and His Racist Supporters I’ve posted the following comments in these links:
1. Dutch MP faces trial for hate speech
2. The New Dutch Government, the EU, and the Wilders Trial

“Does any Muslim trotting the globe and inciting hate against the Christians like Wilders? The answer is no.

Does any Muslim calling to behead the Catholics (an old practice of England) for the existence of 10% child molesters in the church? NO.

So, what is your problem Ingrid? Your knowledge (?) about Islam is astounding!

Could you kindly let us know;
1. Which part of Quran permits Muslims to kill non-Muslims?
2. If anyone was killed simply for not being Muslim?
3. How many Muslims were stoned to death?
4. Why is it that when non-Muslims commit suicide, no one mentions anything about virgins or the afterlife?”

In both cases the following message appeared, “Duplicate comment detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!” and they murdered free speech!
Surely, Gutless Greet Wilders and His Racist Supporters are megabyte Nazis indeed!

All Jihadis do hate mongering, if they don’t do it they are not Jihadis.
They hate Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Sikhs and Atheists.
Furthermore, they hate truth, humanity and reason.
