Geert Wilders: Today's Update

In a debate in Parliament today the Dutch Foreign Minister stood firm by his refusal to discuss in the broader EU political arena, Wilders MP being barred from entering the UK by the Brown Labor Government.

The opposition Liberal Party (VVD) leader led the attack against the Christian Democrat/Labor coalition's refusal to act on a previous motion voted in by House. The Labor Party abandoned its earlier support for the initiative on the grounds that "time had lapsed". Apparently the highest democratic principles have a pretty short expiry date.

The Speaker of the House rebelled against her party, as sole Labor member holding firm in support of the motion.

While individual EU countries have the discretion to bar a persona non grata from their country, refusing entrance to another country's Member of Parliament is almost unheard of!

Wilders' meanwhile has reiterated his opinion that Gordon Brown "is the greatest coward in all of Europe", adding that the Dutch PM and Foreign Minister have the honor of sharing second place. Regretably Wilders is copying the Postmodern debating style, which couples false analogy and gross exaggeration to ad hominem attacks.

Also today in ground breaking news the Dutch Supreme Council has ruled that defamation of a religion is insufficient ground for an indictment. Not even if the faithful "feel" subjectively insulted.

The Court threw out a case in which a man, following the slaughter of Theo van Gogh, had put up a poster reading, "Stop the cancer of Islam". The man was earlier condemned by two lower Courts.

According to the Supreme Court, a distinction must be made between the defamation of a religion or ideology, or of its followers, in which case it's apparently "discrimination". Wilders is indicted by the Amsterdam Court of Appeal on precisely those grounds.

Here's the text again - you be the judge if lumping the Koran with "Main Kampf" is objective truth, a slur to either a religion and/or an ideology, or discrimination of Muslims.

Don't forGeert Wilders!
Stop talking, start acting.
Isn't Geert's freedom worth a stamp? And yours?

If Geert Wilders falls, then Freedom of speech is dead in western countries. We are launching an extensive International Action SITA including two possible texts ; one comparing Wilders and Winston Churchill and another Wilders and Charlie Chaplin:

LAST RESULTS

SITA action in support to Geert Wilders, report N°2 (Fev 25, 2009)
It's already one month ago (Jan 21-->Fev 25) we have been launching an international SITA action in support to Geert Wilders the "Voltaire" of four time.
The beginning success with 2 large peaks of 400 views(01/26/09) then 300(Fev 07) is confirmed with presently more than 3500 views (.Mar 4).
Still better, our SITA websites (coranix.org and SITAmnesty.wordpress.com) have been visited by Dutch Ministery of Justice: http://tinyurl.com/agl2kn
It's clearly the proof SITA mails are disturbing Dutch authorities. So much better it's our aim.
Let's forget peaks, from now on we must keep on sending from time to time (once a week or month) a SITA mail in order the dhimmis from Amsterdam receive every day one or two letters, not necessaryly an amount. Think about the drop of water falling regularly at the same place and capable to make a hole in the hardest rock.
For example you could send a SITA mail every month at the date of you birthday so it would be an almost random process. A little effort from every one and a great success for all of us. Let's maintain the pressure.
