Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Dutch Parliamentary Leader Stands Up to Islam And Wins

These days, when someone stands up for what is right according to the values of Western Civilization, it is no mean feat. Geert Wilders, a leader in the Dutch Parliament, has continually put himself on the line to say the truth about Islam and what this religion portends for decent, rightminded people. In 2009 he was briefly banned from entering England and indicted by a Dutch court for "incitement." He has continually exposed Islam though his speeches and his movie, "Fitna," for the cruel and violent religion that it is. He is truly a hero for our time. Recently a Dutch court acquitted him of all charges.

AMSTERDAM (AFP )---An Amsterdam court Thursday acquitted Dutch extreme-right and anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders on charges of hate speech and discrimination for statements he made attacking Islam.
"You are being acquitted on all the charges that were put against you," Judge Marcel van Oosten told Wilders.
"The bench finds that your statements are acceptable within the context of the public debate," Judge van Oosten told Wilders, 47, who has been on trial in the Amsterdam regional court since last October.
The flamboyant 47-year-old MP faced five counts of hate speech and discrimination for his anti-Islamic remarks on websites, Internet forums and in Dutch newspapers between October 2006 and March 2008, and in his controversial 17-minute movie "Fitna" ("Discord" in Arabic).
Wilders, whose PVV party gives parliamentary support to a right-leaning Dutch coalition, said had demanded his acquittal, saying he was "defending freedom" in the Netherlands.
He said: "I defend the character, the identity, the culture and the freedom of the Netherlands."
He went on trial for criticizing Islam and notably likening the Koran to Hitler's "Mein Kampf".
"I am obliged to speak, because the Netherlands is under threat of Islam," he said, adding "Islam is opposed to freedom."
