More Fall-Out on the Dutch Prostration Before Obscurantism

By the way, let's get something straight! Islam has nothing to do with race. That myth is pushed on the basis that children born to a Muslim father, are automatically absorbed into the collective Ummah. One could argue on that basis that - like race - to be a Muslim isn't a matter of choice: one cannot help it, as it were! But acting against the pernicious influence of Islamism, as a religion and as a total-ideology, has nothing to do with racism.

Here's that despicable piece of solidified hatred produced by the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. Read it! You'll be amazed how fast a country can slip into the abyss! The essence of the indictment is, insults against Islam. Since when is that notion part of Western culture? The Dark Ages are actually starting to look relatively bright in comparison! What's next? Heresy laws? The stake or the rack?

You can help and contribute towards Wilders' legal funds on this site, and ... or - and this is fun - you can order printed t-shirts from the Flaming Blog here--a wonderful American grassroots initiative by the way!

This is, after all, a liberal democracy, and their lordships enjoy the rights of freedom of expression and freedom of association, not to mention certain parliamentary privileges for the protection of their function in the legislature.

But no sooner had the unsuspecting baroness sent out her invitations, Lord Ahmed raised hell. It is reported that he ‘threatened to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House and threatened to take the colleague who was organising the event to court’. And so Fitna has been cancelled: it shall not now be screened in the House of Lords on 29th January.
The Pakistani Press is jubliant, and Lord Ahmed is praising Allah for delivering ‘a victory for the Muslim community’. (...) >>>
