Geert Wilders Final Remarks to the Court (Video)

Via Gates of Vienna, Geert Wilders made his concluding remarks to the Amsterdam court where he is being tried for "inciting hatred."  His crime:  he made the film "Fitna" that quoted passages from the Koran, juxtaposed with images of Muslim atrocities, including 9/11 and Madrid, as well as with videos of Muslim leaders voicing hatred and pledging violence.

In short, Geert Wilders is on trial for telling the truth, that Islam is a totalitarian ideology that is violent and hateful.  The Netherlands, like much of Europe, has become extremely intolerant of free speech, stating that the truth of the speech is not a defense against prosecution.  Europe has become what the left wants to create here in the USA, to prosecute people for political reasons, for thought crimes, for voicing their opinions.
