Dutch politician puts sticker on his door challenging Islam
Dutch politician Geert Wilders has published a line of stickers.
These stickers resemble the flag of Saudi Arabia (green field with arab text), but the text on them is changed.
The original is:

ا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله ومُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله
lā ʾilāha ʾillā l-Lāh wa Muḥammadun rasūlu l-Lāh
"There is no god but God and Muhammad is the messenger of God
(wikipedia)
While Wilders' sticker reads:

Islam is a lie.
Muhamed was a criminal.
The Kuran is toxic.

Politically correct Holland has condemned the stickers: Calling it as bad as Nazi germany.

Your thoughts please.

I fail to see how stickers are as bad as killing six million Jews. Consider

Calling stickers saying a faith is bullshit as bad as Nazi Germany is a bit of an over-reaction don't you think? It's not like the stickers are advocating the killing of Jews or Muslims.

If those stickers are as bad as Nazi Germany, one has to wonder what our own Pictures to Laugh at Religion thread is comparable to...

Its obviously insurance fraud on their foreign embassies.
instead of soaking a rat in gasoline its Muslims.

There is no proof that islam is a lie, and to deface another countries flag like that is a bit too much.

that said , I would have no problem with a sticker quoting the parts of the Quran where Mohammad grooms a 6 year old and rapes her at age 9.
and this lovely quote;

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:
Narrated 'Aisha:
I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

I think he should make a sticker with the Satanic verses :
"Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-‘Uzzá
and Manāt, the third, the other?
These are the exalted gharāniq, whose intercession is hoped for."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satanic_Verses

(proof of the real origins of Islam).

What is the goal of these stickers?

1. Convince Muslims that they chose the wrong religion? Do you think
such stickers have a compelling argument?

or

2. Make Muslims feel most unwelcome in the Netherlands. Hopefully,
with stickers posted all over the place, they will feel so miserable
and threatened that they just move to another country.

Much of the criticism of Islam also applies to Christianity.

I believe that Wilders has a deep seated hatred of Muslims (despite what
he claims), so he made it his #1 goal in life to fight a (culture) war
against them.

I do not think that the stickers of Wilders are considered politically incorrect
in the Netherlands. He is the leader of the most popular political party according
to opinion polls. I think that defending Muslims in the Netherlands is
way more politically incorrect.

I am no fan of Islam, Christianity or Geert Wilders.

I do believe he is disproportionately going after Islam. If he went after other religions he would be more respectable.
But his base lies in the christians and the elderly.

It's PC insanity to say the sticker is comparable to Nazism. It does seem designed to piss off Muslims, though.
Netherlands does have freedom of speech - sort of.
