Islamsts ban Wilders quoting the qran

in response to reader comment: One problem with Geert Wilders

Is raising the issue of a quran ban a "tactical mistake" ? I would see this very much as a tactic to open the discussion on two subjects: the consequences of propaganda and the mein kampf - qran comparison. The Islamists asking for a ban on Wilders' fitna film essentially want to shut down Wilders quoting the qran, which is as far as text goes, everything he does in the film. I find this a remarkable logic.
