This should have never gone to trial anyhow. May our enemies ESAD!*

(minor update: The BBC have finally recovered from the initial shock:Â Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders has been acquitted of all charges of inciting hatred against Muslims).
Wilders is a free man again. And because of this we all are (still) allowed to say what we think. This is a good day!
Here’s Andrew Bolt: Wilders acquitted
Andrew BoltÂ â€“ Thursday, June 23, 11 (07:20 pm)
It’s a crime that the case even went to court, and much damage is already done:
Dutch politician Â Geert Wilders has been acquitted by a court in Amsterdam where he was on trial for inciting hatred and discrimination against Muslims.
Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party, has described Islam as a “fascist ideology”, comparing the Quran to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He was acquitted on all five charges that were pressed against him.
The judge on Thursday said that Wilders’ statements were “rude and condescending” but not a criminal offence according to Dutch law.
“The bench finds that your statements are acceptable within the context of the public debate,” the judge told Wilders, who has been on trial in the Amsterdam regional court since last October.
Wilders has said he has a “problem with Islamic tradition, culture, [and] ideology; not with Muslim people”.
The judge interpreted Wilders’ remarks as challenging Islam as an ideology, which is not a criminal offence in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands to Abandon Multiculturalism
In any event, he was to be vindicated regardless of the show trial outcome, as Holland attempts to turn back from total islamization and social collapse:
[A new integration bill (covering letter and 15-page action plan), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: “The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.”] Read it all….
