Geert Wilders Verdict: West 1, Islam 0

Big Government 24 June 2011
By Pamela Geller

The judges in the Court of Amsterdam delivered their verdict Thursday morning in the heresy trial of Dutch Freedom Party politician Geert Wilders. Wilders has been found not guilty of all charges of inciting hatred against Muslims. The judge, Marcel van Oosten, and the other Dutch authorities ended up doing the right thing, no matter how cowardly and compromised they may have been. They must have known how history would view them if Wilders had been found guilty: as troglodytes who ushered in the return of the Dark Ages.

When do the Islamic supremacists go on trial for inciting hatred against non-Muslims?

The latest trial for such a crime began last week, the Mail reports. Yet this gang is hardly the only one. News reports in the Mail and elsewhere suggest that Muslim-controlled sex slavery is quotidian routine, along with the proliferation of  burqas and marching for Sharia law, in merry old England.
