Wilders Trial Begins

Girt Wilders, the Dutch member of Parliament who has, both in the Netherlands and elsewhere, attacked Islam, is on trial in Amsterdam on charges that he has incited violence against Muslims.

The trial is pitting the desire to protect a segment of the population against promoted attack and the long-standing belief in free speech in the Netherlands.

Wilders film, Fitna, argues that the Koran promotes violence by Muslims against non-believers.
