Charles, the Mein Kampf - Qran comparison by Geert Wilders I cannot comment on. Frankly because I have never read "Mein Kampf". Translating Dr Pipes argument into "Nazis are what Nazis do" I see no reason to read the book, millions dead speak for themselves. Wilders will force the court to read the book however. It would be much more advisable to look at Nazi times news reports about propaganda event or even better read life stories of people who experienced the Holocaust as victims.

Now there is at least one. Anne Frank's diary is written in Dutch language and most likely the alltime bestseller of originally dutch-language books. That is something Wilders should tell the judges. Why was she sitting there writing this diary, why did she die, is it true thing can never possibly turn out that bad ? Is not true the whole world read the book and the dutch state would stand by today and tolerate antisemitism ? This young girl defeated Hitler's book in sales, credibility and importance.
