November 29 2007

In Dutch political circles there is growing concern over the plans of the right member of parliament, leader of the Party for Freedom Heerta Wilders remove a critical film about the Quran and to arrange for display on television in late January.

From leaking to the media of information, it became known that the film will represent a kind of accusation against the Koran. " Quotes from this holy book for Muslims will be accompanied by a video-clip, which may offend the sensibilities of Muslim believers.

Wilders called the Koran "a horrible and fascist," saying that "this book encourages people to terrible crimes."

"I hope the film will open people's eyes and they realize that the Koran should be banned, just like Mein Kampf" - he said. At the same time, Wilders did not disclose what the content of the film and who is the director. He said he was not going to offend anybody with this movie.

"If someone feels offended, it is - not my problem" - he said.

Chairman of the Netherlands Muslim Council Abdelmajid Hyrum regretted Wilders plans. "Wilders insults not only Muslims but also Niderlandly in general - he said. - I think that he has not read not only the Koran but also the Criminal Code, because discrimination is prohibited by law. "

Several members of the Government of the Netherlands are trying to persuade Wilders on his idea. Enestam Minister of Justice Hirsch Ballin has warned the right policy, that such a movie can cause a negative reaction from Muslims living in the Netherlands, and lead to problems in Dutch society. Foreign Minister Maxime Ferhahen drew attention to the fact that the demonstration of the film would create a dangerous situation for himself Wilders, his entourage and for the Dutch overseas.
