Today’s quote of the day could hardly have come from anywhere else, could it?
If something is true, it cannot possibly be illegal, can it?
(Complete speech in NL and in EN)
That is going to be the litmus test, isn’t it? Have things gone so far in the Netherlands that telling the truth (about the contents of the Koran, or the contents of Muhammeds character, for that matter) will now become illegal?
Coverage of the trial is abundant, so I will refrain from repeating what others have probably said much better then I could possibly do. I’ll just refer you to:
Geert Wilders: “If a politician is not allowed to criticize an ideology anymore this means that we are lost, and it will lead to the end of our freedom”
“According to Wilders, the truth about Islam must be made known, even if it is painful and unpleasant for certain people”
Al-Jazeera proves Wilders’ point
Wilders: “If expressions reflect the truth, how could they be criminal?”
Gates of Vienna:
“You Are Living in an Islamic Country, My Friend”
The Opening Salvos
“It Is Becoming Frightening Now…”
