Dutch Lawmaker Plans Anti-Koran Film
Geert Wilders, the anti-Islamist Dutch politician with hair that puts John Edwards to shame, has announced he’ll be making a short film criticizing the Quran.
One fatwa, coming up.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands: A Dutch conservative lawmaker said Wednesday he is making a film to highlight what he describes as “fascist” passages in the Quran, his latest high profile criticism of Islam.
The interior and justice ministers said they were concerned, but believed they had no authority to prevent the lawmaker, Geert Wilders, from screening his film.
Wilders plans to depict parts of the Quran he says are used as inspiration “by bad people to do bad things.”
Less than 10 minutes long, the film is expected to air in late January. It will show “the intolerant and fascist character of the Quran,” said Wilders, whose anti-Islam campaign helped his Freedom Party win nine seats in parliament in last year’s election.
