Randall Parker over at Parapundit has organised a multi-blog posting day on behalf of Geert Wilders. That was yesterday - I missed out I'm afraid, but better late than never.
I have a slightly different take compared to most others in that I think the trial is a good thing. I say this because first it throws up a number of glaring paradoxes:
1: A a man constantly surrounded by security guards to protect him from Muslim assassins is the one on trial for his supposed crimes against Muslims
2: The Dutch government is actually trying to imprison the leader of the main opposition party
Is that un-Dutch or what?
Then the trial will give Wilders a superb platform to highlight, in front of the international media, the full horrors of the Koran and what passes for life under the Religion of Peace. Unless the courts move strongly to interdict him, which will exacerbate the paradoxes I referred to above, he has the stage to himself.
And in a worse case scenario which sees him convicted and jailed.... well what sort of a reaction do you think there'll be to that in tolerant, open, liberal Holland?
All in all, far more positives than negatives methinks!
