Not so Dutch Treat: Geert Wilders Trial on PJTV

I interviewed Dutch novelist/filmmaker Leon De Winter for PJTV yesterday on the subject of the Geert Wilders trial.  I was fascinated by a lot of what Leon said and we have made the interview available free (with registration) here.  Apparently, we are on the cusp of the Dutch Trial of the Century, especially since Wilders has allegedly equated the Koran with Mein Kampf.  (Mein Kampf, as I learned, is illegal in Holland as it is in Germany, except for scholars with special requests.)  In any case, the allegations are so incendiary,  De Winter is not even sure this will get to trial.  Have a listen.
