This is a good result.
The reasoning is bizarre.
His insults of Islam are not insults of moslims.
So, if I say, for example, that Judaism is evil and preaches taking financial control and that an eye-for-an-eye will only lead to violence and hence, all Judaism and followers of Judaism should be expelled from a country... that's fine. Because it's not hate-speech towards Jews.
Personally I couldn't care less what Wilders says. Anyone who follows his party's programme deserves a slow and painful death (note: I'm not insulting the followers directly, only what they BELIEVE).
I just find the whole argument, slightly, uh, mad.
