Dutch politician and member of the ruling coalition Geert Wilders is presently facing charges in the Netherlands for inciting hatred against Muslims because he said, "I've had enough of Islam in the Netherlands; let not one more Muslim immigrate into the Netherlands." Today Pope Benedict said, "All countries have the right to regulate immigration flows and protect their borders, and immigrants must respect the laws and national identity of their host nations."

Geert Wilders was raised as a Roman Catholic and now calls himself a member of the Judeo-Christian religion. Geert Wilders says that "the Koran incites hatred and killing and therefore has no place in our legal order." In his movie "Fitna" Geert Wilders juxtaposes verses from the Koran commanding violence and war against all non Muslims (the cause) with images of terrorist acts by Islamic radicals (the consequences, the effect of the Koran.)

In September 2006, Pope Benedict gave a speech in his native Germany at Regensberg University. Condemning the concept of Jihad, Holy War, Pope Benedict quoted the 14th century Orthodox Christian Emperor Manual II, and read, "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new (the Koran) and there (in the Koran) you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his commands to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

The Dutch prosecutors decided that Geert Wilders had not committed a criminal offense and they decided not to charge him. The Dutch Appeals Court disagreed and demanded that Geert Wilders be charged. At the conclusion of the case the Prosecutors asked for an acquittal. The Court refused. The 3 member court also refused to allow Geert Wilders to call his witnesses. Then it turns out that one of the Judges met with one of Geert Wilders' excluded witnesses and told him that Geert was guilty. This was too much even for the Dutch Appeals Court which then found that the judges were biased and they ordered a new trial for Geert Wilders in front of different judges. The Appeals Court demanded that Geert Wilders and Pope Benedict be tried jointly. Pope Benedict then excommunicated the Appeals Court judges and sentenced them all to eternal damnation in Hell.
