Geert Wilders on Islam

Yesterday, Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician was acquitted on a charge of hate speech for criticizing Islam.  The charges apparently stemmed from comments he made comparing Islam to Nazism, as well as a film he made, entitled Fitna ("Discord" in Arabic) in which he interspersed images from the 9/11 attacks with verses of the Koran that arguably justified them.  Mr. Wilders rightly called his acquittal a victory for freedom of speech.

On his website, he publishes a Message to Muslims that is a must read for everyone, Muslim or not.
