VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Geert Wilders Trial: Truth is No Defense


Google published an article from Canada Free Press about recent developments in the trial of Geert Wilders.  One prosecutorial qoute  stands out like sore thumb and must be addressed.  Thanks and a tip of the hat to Jihad Watch.

“You can expect a politician to be aware of the impact of his words and in any case, the legal limit may not be crossed, no matter how important it may be to address supposed problems and to contribute to matters of general interest,”   Prosecutor Birgit van Roessel [Emphasis added.]

The relevant statutory provisions are revealed in the summons.  Expressions which “insult a group of people”  and/or ” incites hatred or discrimination” against them are arbitrarily prohibited.  No defenses are allowed.

If Muslims, motivated by the normative doctrines of Islam enshrined in the Qur’an and exemplified by Muhammad’s Sunnah, murder film makers, assault homosexuals, threaten members of parliament and pose an existential threat to the cultural identity and continuance of a free & democratic Netherlands, public disclosure of the facts is prohibited and can not be excused on grounds of necessity.

Besides mandating national suicide, the prosecutor has a severe cognitive dissonance problem. She moved for dismissal of charges of insulting Muslims because the insult was to Islamic ideology, not to Muslims.  If the insult was to Islam, then the incitement &  discrimination must also be against Islam,  not Muslims.  All of the charges should be dropped, they should never have been filed.

Geert Wilders on Trial: Testimony of Wafa Sultan


Thanks and a tip of the hat to Vlad Tepes for  embedding these informative videos.  In these two videos, with a total run time of 19:14, we hear the  chairman of the judicial panel reading from the testimony of expert witness Wafa Sultan.

I doubt that the judge was comfortable reading that content, but he made an obvious effort to avoid displaying his disgust. His relief is obvious when he finishes reading the testimony.  The defendant and his lawyer were obviously struggling to maintain decorum.  A few  audience members in the gallery were not so successful in maintaining  a straight face.  A good view of the prosecution side might have been priceless.

Unfortunately, the dry reading of her testimony lacks the passion with which Sultan drove her points home in an interview the day before her testimony.
[Wafa Sultan Interview ]

Though lacking the chapter & verse specificity of  previous testimony, Sultan confirms it  plus Fitna and Wilders’ statements.  She illustrated her testimony with examples from her own  experience in her early life in Syria.

If truth were a defense against the charges  on which Wilders is being tried, Sultan’s testimony would be devastating to the prosecution’s case. Had her testimony been  public and properly covered by the news media, it would be devastating to Islam.
