in response to reader comment: If Wilders is condemned, the whole principles of human rights are forgotten by the judges ..

elisseievna, I am afraid in the light of history judges have not yet proved to be the preservers of human rights. The Wilders trial is another example. Rights need to be taken, they are not given, taken against the rulings of courts and laws. It is a fight. Wilders was born with the ability and the right to speak freely.
