Politician Geert Wilders appears in several of the papers in cartoon form On Tuesday, behind a police cordon with a bomb atop his trademark blond hairdo and a sign saying "Danger! Freedom of Expression".
The cartoon is the work of Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, the man behind the Mohammad cartoons that caused an uproar in the Muslim world when they were published two years ago.
His Wilders cartoon is a nod to the controversial cartoon of Mohammad with a bomb in his turban which the Dutch politician featured prominently in his anti-Qur'an film, but without asking permission.
Wilders has now promised to remove it and several other copyright-sensitive parts of the film for fear of legal action.
