'Koran film' on YouTube not from Wilders

THE HAGUE – A clip presented on the website YouTube as a film on the Koran by Freedom party PVV leader Geert Wilders is "fake". Wilders said this on Thursday in response to a report in the Volkskrant.
He has also informed the justice department, which contacted him about the film clip. The cabinet warned Wilders in November about the unrest that his project may provoke in the Muslim community.
The clip on YouTube is titled 'Forbidden' and shows former British prime minister Tony Blair and US president George Bush talking about Islam as a peaceful religion being abused by terrorists. That is not Wilders' standpoint; he claims Islam is violent and wants the Koran to be banned.
Wilders says his own film project is not yet completed and that he will not be releasing any kind of preview. The PVV leader hopes his 10-minute film will be ready by the end of the month.
Wilders is in talks with the television programme NOVA about airing the film. He sets the condition however that the film must be shown in its entirety.
