Freedom of speech does not mean that one can go around spreading false propaganda and hatred and not held accountable for it. Unfortunately this is exactly what west is becoming an icon of.

Under the excuse of freedom of speech people like Mr Wilders deliberately conceal, distort and misquote out of context to mislead the unsuspecting public. Thus hurt and incite hatred against others which is in direct contradiction to Article 20(2) of Human Bill or Rights (http://www2.ohchr.org/english/law/ccpr.htm), which states: Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law. Thus any Nation failing to respect this provision is indeed placing itself beyond the basic expectations required from civilized societies

Following videos expose the lies of Mr Wilders and show how he has distorted the truth and mislead the public.
