Wilders

Reader comment on item: Western Civilization on Trial: Why We Should Be Watching Geert Wilders

Submitted by Janusz Kowalik (United States), Feb 8, 2010 at 14:27

I think tthat Mr Wilders trial is a scandal showing how the Duch government is corrupted and betrays the principle of freedom of speech.Every idea and view should be evaluated freely by intellectuals and everybody else. There is absolutely no reason why Islam could not be discussed and evaluated .We can only criticise Mr Wilers if what he expressed in rhe film is not true.Killing the freedom of speech is a suicide of the Western culture.

After WWII we know that appeasement toward a bad ideology leads to catastrophic results.Bombing pf Rotterdam was a result of Germans supporting Adolf Hitler's ideology. How many times we have to see this again.
