"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Dutch Foreign Minister Stands up for Geert Wilders

From Gates of Vienna

The Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Uri Rosenthal, dissociates himself from a call by the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to the Dutch government to stop the “campaign of hatred” of PVV leader Geert Wilders.

“The Dutch government dissociates itself fully from the request to silence a politician. The Netherlands have a very high regard for freedom of speech,” Rosenthal said on Wednesday.
