Dutch Anti-Islam Politician Won't Be Charged
Dutch legislator Geert Wilders will not be prosecuted for inciting hatred of Muslims with his film denouncing the Quran, prosecutor said Monday. Prosecutor said his film Fitna, or "Ordeal" in Arabic, and statements Wilders wrote in Dutch newspapers were hurtful and insulting but not criminal. The film juxtaposed Quranic verses against a background of violent film clips and images of terrorism by Islamic radicals. It aroused protests around the Muslim world after it was released on the Internet in March.

I'd rather be a 'victim' of "hurtful" comments that bring attention to violent atrocities, than be an innocent victim of terrorist murders. The man dramatically pointed out the truth without mincing his words. For some reason (Christianity?), we in the West are expected to be kind and understanding toward our enemies and to ignore their inflammatory words and deeds. Enough of turning the other cheek and pandering to our enemies' threats to silence us with violence. Speak out now, loudly! Or go down with a whimper.
