Dutch Protest Film about Islam
Dutch protesters object to this month's internet release of the controversial 15-minute short film, directed by Geert Wilders, a right-wing politician who describes Islamic ideology as "the enemy of freedom".
The BBC Reports:
Some protesters in central Amsterdam carried signs that said "Stop the witch hunt against Muslims".
"We can no longer remain silent. There is a climate of hate and fear in the Netherlands," said Rene Danen, a spokesman from anti-racism organisation Nederland Bekent Kleur (The Netherlands Shows its Colours), which organised the protest.
The film has already been condemned by several Muslim countries, including Iran and Pakistan.
