Geert Wilders: Suicidal Dutch leader

The leader of the right-wing Freedom Party, Geert Wilders is working on a film about Islam. He is following in the footsteps of Theo van Gogh who directed "Submission" about the plight of women in Islam.

The film is yet to be released.

The expectations are that the film will be offensive to Muslims. The Quran calls on Muslims to kill those who insult Islam.

At Brussels Journal Thomas Landen has a thoughtfull piece on Wilders' film, the Muslim threat and extremism in Dutch culture. I recommend that you read the whole piece titled "Geert Wilders on a suicide mission".
