Quote of the day (yesterday) comes from Gates of Vienna, which, hands down, features the most extensive English-language coverage of the Geert Wilders trial. There, translated from the Dutch, is an interview with Afshin Ellian (photo above) via Metronieuws.
A little background info on Ellian.
Ellian, born 1966, fled Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamic revolution in Iran in 1983 and now resides in the Netherlands where he is a law professor, poet, columnist and professor of citizenship, social cohesion and multiculturalism at the University of Leiden.
OK. Now the quotation.
Ellian: "If you cannot say that the Islam is a backward religion and that Muhammad is a criminal, then you are living in an Islamic country, my friend, because there you also cannot say such things. I may say Christ was a fag and Mary was a whore, but apparently I should stay off of Muhammad.”
The rest of the interview is here.
