    Here is <em>Fitna</em> - Jihad Watch

    CNN) -- Controversial Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders appeared in court Wednesday on charges of inciting discrimination and hatred that relate in part to his much-criticized film about Islam.

    Wednesday's session at the Court of Amsterdam was a pre-trial hearing and a full trial was due to begin later this year. A court spokesman said the hearing was expected to last one day but could stretch into Thursday.

    Wilders, who heads the Dutch Party for Freedom, said he has done nothing wrong. "I will fight," he promised in a statement Tuesday on the party's Web site.
    Prosecutors initially decided not to pursue the case, saying in June 2008 that Wilders' statements were not liable to punishment, the Public Prosecutions Service said. They said that even though Wilders' comments were "defamatory and hurtful to a great number of Muslims," they fell within the limits of free speech.

    "Far-right MP Geert Wilders on trial for discrimination against Muslims," by David Charter for the Times Online, January 20:

    Geert Wilders, the far-right MP who likens the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf, goes on trial today in a politically charged test of the limits of tolerance and free speech in the Netherlands.
    Mr Wilders, 46, leader of the Freedom Party, is charged with incitement and discrimination against Muslims over his outspoken comments attacking Islam and for his film, Fitna, which juxtaposed images of 9/11 and beheadings with verses of the Koran. He has called the Koran "a fascist book" and described Islamic culture as retarded.
    Mr Wilders, who has made no secret of his ambition to become Prime Minister, has called his indictment a political trial but the Amsterdam Court of Appeal decided that it was in the public interest to prosecute him because his comments have been "so insulting to Muslims".
    "I am being prosecuted for my political convictions," Mr Wilders said this week.

    From what I read, all of it is in marginal taste but only the most thin skinned could get upset about it. What the Muslims say about the rest of us is 1000 times worse.

    Here, it would be protected speech even on the wost PC campus.

    Let him say what he wants. The notion that a single peroxide-crazed moron can impede the inevitable spread of Islam is beyond ridiculous.

    Objecting to Islam is futile.

    The quran does call for genocide, there are limits to free speech already in place.

    You're confusing the Qur'an with your own religious scripture.
