Geert Wilders acquitted! Will not be silenced!

Writing at New English Review, our friend Jerry Gordon reports the good news!

The decision by the Amsterdam District court today acquitting Hon. Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom party (PVV) in the Hague Parliament in The Netherlands is a major victory of free speech and the right to criticize a totalitarian doctrine exploiting the rights of a religion, Islam.

The Freedom Party issued this statement by Wilders:

“I am delighted with this ruling,” says Geert Wilders. “It is a victory, not only for me but for all the Dutch people. Today is a victory for freedom of speech. The Dutch are still allowed to speak critically about islam, and resistance against islamisation is not a crime. I have spoken, I speak and I shall continue to speak.”

Judy and I had the pleasure of hearing Wilders speak in Washington, DC in February 2009, here.   You can follow all of our posts on his battle for free speech in the Netherlands in our archives here.

Be sure to read the whole post at New English Review and note that Far Left lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr. stuck his nose into the debate recently.   Longtime readers know that it was old Uncle Ted (Kennedy) who opened the door to Muslim refugees coming to the US—but don’t bring any to Hyannis Port!  (here)

Update!  A reader just reminded  me of the film that brought the wrath of Islam on Wilders—-watch Fitna here.
