How Similar Are These Two Books?


In a Wall Street Journal article, Stop The Trial Of Geert Wilders, Leon de Winter wrote:

The Amsterdam court trying the controversial Dutch politician is now preoccupied with the question of whether this book, sacred to more than a billion believers, can be compared to one of the most vile publications in the history of Western civilization — Hitler's "Mein Kampf."

In his writing and speeches, Mr. Wilders has found these two works to be similar in terms of their anti-Semitism and incitement to hatred, and has thus called for a publishing ban on the Quran similar to the one in place for "Mein Kampf." This is what triggered Mr. Wilders's prosecution for discriminatory and insulting remarks against Muslims and Islam.

The court will have to determine just how similar the two books are! And they will do it on camera.

This trial may be the best thing that has ever happened to the citizen warriors of the world who have been trying to educate our fellow non-Muslims about Islam's relentless encroachment. Geert's trial is going to help bring to light the content of Islamic doctrine to an audience who would normally avoid the knowledge.

Thank you, Pastorius, for bringing this article to my attention.

The Wilders trial is also the best thing that could happen to muslims. They must face their truth

I've tried to imagine what the hell
the crooked Dutch judiciary were attempting with this quasi-soviet style show trial.
If he is exonerated then the Dutch electorate will almost certainly view this result as a victory for common sense.
On the other hand if convicted Wilders will be seen as a martyr to
whims of a judiciary that have abandoned free speech;giving Wilders a large sympathy vote in the upcoming general election.
As a dyed in the wool cynic I can only believe that there is a cynical plot to divert Wilders' attention from campaigning.
If the latter explanation is correct then I believe the Dutch electorate will see it for what it is and Wilders will get a possibly bigger sympathy vote on the basis of attempted manipulation.
Taking any option the prosecution was an act of madness or at the very least ill conceived.

I disagree with the last comment, the Dutch Judiciary is fiercely independant and amongst the most respected a-political systems on the planet. When Wilders faces court it will be based on the law and the law alone.

If anything, Wilders is the only person who is politicizing the case and if it goes too far, he can be charged by the judges themselves with the usual punishment being that if found guilty it will force the maximum penality that crime proscribes.

No show trial at all, but certainly a most important test for the laws themselves.

If you want to read more about Wilders by the Dutch themselves and in English - does it well.

What a ridiculous statement. Its clear that the judges were biased. one even tried to get at a witness.

This trial is a farce, a complete farce, and it is a man who is trying to stop your country being over run with foreigners who wish to kill you.

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
