AMSTERDAM - The Dutch government distances itself from legislator Geert Wilders' film Fitna, Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende said late Thursday.

Balkenende told reporters during a press conference that the Dutch government regretted the fact that Wilders had decided to release the film, even though the government had asked Wilders to refrain from making it public.

Balkenende said that the public prosecutor will investigate whether the film complies with Dutch law.

    If you don't know who are the extremist muslims, then I doubt you are a good muslim. Otherwise you would know what I'm talking about.

    Very good, Mr. Balkenende. I wish that "good muslims" would distance themselves from extremist muslims the same way. But, I don't hear them.
