Dutch MP ready to provoke Muslims again with a provocative anti-Islam film

Amsterdam, 02 December, (Asiantribune.com): A political storm is brewing over the proposed move of the Dutch member of parliament, Geert Wilders, to produce a 10-miniute TV movie highlighting what he calls the "fascist" aspects of the Koran which prompts Muslims to commit bad acts.

Geert Wilders has been campaigning against Muslim migrants and the Koran. Highlighting "fascist passages" he argues that the Koran inspires people to commit bad acts.

Wilders, a right-wing politico, has even compared the Holy Book of Muslims to Hitler's Mein Kampf.

The Dutch government fears a backlash but the Justice Ministry has refused to intervene on the grounds of his right to freedom of expression.

His first film, Submission, exposing abuse of Muslim women was directed by Theo van Gogh who was murdered in the streets of Amsterdam by a Muslim fundamentalist, Mohammed Bouyeri in 2004. After his throat was slit a message was written on his body warning the Muslim script writer, Ayaam Hirsh Ali, a Dutch Liberal MP. She is now under 24-hour police protection. His lagtest film is expected to be a sequel to Submission.

The anti-Muslim campaign of his Freedom Party won nine seats in the last election. Freedom Party is opposed to flooding the nation with Muslim migrants. Of the 16 million, one million consists of Muslims. With this film the intention is to keep the anti-Mulsim vote alive and kicking.

Wilders may have a problem of screening it as he has not yet found a slot in the national TV stations.

He has refused to reveal the contents of the film. He says: "Let the people go and see it."
