Dutch MP releases anti-Islam movie

The Dutch cabinet is holding an extraordinary session this evening to discuss the release of the film Fitna by the anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders.

Earlier this week Network Solutions pulled the plug on a promotional website for the film and YouTube removed the first part of the videoclip, citing "terms of use violation". Wilders was also turned down by all Dutch broadcasters.

The movie is now hosted by LiveLeak, based in the UK, a video sharing site which allows controversial and uncensored clips of war, conflict and death. In the past, the site showed videos of the execution of Saddam Hussain and a failed suicide bomber’s final moments. Due to heavy traffic, the site loads slowly.

Wilders is the leader of the anti-immigration PVV Party who was raised a Roman Catholic and claims tight connections with the Mossad.

Fitna, a Koranic term translated as 'strife', shows footage of the attacks on the US in September 2001, and images of the bomb attacks on London and Madrid. Wilders suggests that Muslims should "tear out half of the Koran".

The Dutch government is afraid the film will cause protests by Muslims. The Dutch public prosecution department said it would investigate the film to see if it contained anything that is "punishable by law", but never saw it. The Dutch Islamic Federation is petitioning a Dutch judge tomorrow for a fine of €50,000 per day if Wilders airs the film, and a €5,000 fine for each instance of an "injuring remark". ®
