I certainly hope so, but the very fact that this trial against criticism of Islam is taking place shows what Bat Ye'or calls "Dhimmititude".

I know nothing about Italian law, but I would imagine laws regarding outrage against religion were enacted in Europe to defend Christianity from novelists like Flaubert (Madame Bovary's adultery) and Voltaire (general atheism) in France.

The muslims in Italy probably think they can use these antiquated laws to their benefit.

I hope they are wrong.
