Wilders stronger with only 3 witness, what about witness to the prosecution ?

Charles, as the judge accepts 3 ouf 18 experts to Wilders' defense I believe it makes him stronger. It makes it difficult for judge to selectively prefer one expert over another, based on what they say, given there are only 3 to pick from. It is far easier for Wilders to establish a unanimous statement by 3 experts rather than 18. On the other hand 3 is a number high enough to use the term an unanimous statement on the part of the judge. Are there any witnesses to the prosecution ? Can the prosecution somehow prove that people actually hate muslims as a result of what Wilders said. Are there any muslim victims of discrimination or violence where the criminals would refer to Wilders as an inspiration ?
