Can the “moderates” handle it? I doubt it.
More victimization without reformation.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands: — A Dutch conservative lawmaker said Wednesday he is making a film to highlight what he describes as “fascist” passages in the Koran, 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 Koran 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 Koran,” said Wilders, whose anti-Islam campaign helped his Freedom Party win nine seats in parliament in last year’s election.
In the past, Wilders has said that half the Koran should be torn up and compared it with Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf.” He has claimed the Netherlands is being swamped by a “tsunami” of Islamic immigrants.
Immigrants from Muslim countries number about 1 million of the country’s 16 million people.
Wilders’ planned broadcast is reminiscent of the film “Submission” — a fictional study of abused Muslim women with scenes of near-naked women with Koranic texts engraved on their flesh.

Justice Ministry spokesman Wim van der Weegen said the government is “taking measures” before the broadcast of Wilders’ film. He declined to elaborate.
“Based on the discussion, the ministers have expressed concern,” Van der Weegen said. “But at the same time (they) have said that Mr. Wilders has freedom of expression.”
Wilders said he is not afraid of reprisals if his film angers Muslims. “I have lived with 24-hour protection for three years,” he said.
