HILVERSUM – Now that Fitna is online, fewer Dutch people are worried there will be riots than before the release of the film.

A survey by television programme EenVandaag indicates that 20 percent of the Dutch expect there will be riots, while more than half of the population expected this before the film was released.

About 10,000 people took part in the survey. 44 percent agree with Wilders' standpoint that 'Islam is out to destroy Western civilisation.'

A large majority (82 percent) of those surveyed thinks there has been "much ado about nothing."

A survey by pollster Maurice de Hond showed Friday that almost a third of the Dutch have watched the film Fitna either in its entirety or in part.

A poll of 853 people by TNS Nipo, commissioned by RTL, indicates that 61 percent of those asked said they felt that, in hindsight, it was right that the broadcast of the film was not banned.

Of those who have seen the film, more than half (55 percent) say they thought it was a bad film.

    Ryan, true I thought he could of done a better job. It makes me upset how this idiot can try to ride his party and his fame in the political arena by take cheap shots at religions and feeding into what some people like to hear. I am just happy that this time around the muslim people did not go crazy on the streets, because its this that causes others like the Dutch politican to become popular we already made Hersi Ali famous and rich I might say. When I say we I mean us the muslims.
    Again we cannot go fighting every tom dick and harry when they say something insulting. It is a free world and just as they can make movies we can make movies about them and discredit them or their parties. MUSLIMS WAKE UP AND THINK LOGICALLY!

    I am considering rioting over how appalling the editing and production of this "film" were. Shameful effort from beginning to end.
