Dutch Muslim TV offered to show Wilders' film

Reader comment on item: Will Geert Wilders Show His Film on the Koran[, Fitna]?

Submitted by Carlos D (Netherlands), Mar 27, 2008 at 03:58

Apparently the Dutch Muslim broadcaster NMO (Nederlandse Moslim Omroep) has offered to show Wilders' fim in its entirety. The only condition being that they want to view the film first to check whether anything in the film could lead to legal problems (e.g. criminal charges or libel suits) and is within broadcasting guidelines (scenes too violent for general viewers). In other words, conditions that any broadcaster would make.

Wilders has rejected this offer out of hand.


There are also growing doubts in the Netherlands whether the "15 minute" film actually exists.
