THE NETHERLANDS - The Dutch right-wing Freedom Party is furious about a paragraph in a primary school textbook in which party leader Geert Wilders' film Fitna is put on a par with Adolf Hitler's book Mein Kampf.

The textbook, which will be distributed to 2,000 primary schools, cite Fitna and Mein Kampf as examples of one-sided thinking.

The Freedom Party says it's a disgrace that the textbook was subsidised by the Dutch government. The party speaks of political indoctrination and demands that the authors, the Day of Respect foundation recall the textbooks.

The foundation says that even though it is not entirely happy about the phrasing of the passage in question, it has no intention of cancelling distribution.

The Day of Respect will be marked next week on Thursday, 13 November 2008.

    In Fitna, Wilders says little if anything at all. He simply quotes from the Koran and Islamic core texts and shows the actions of those who follow those teachings. It is irresponsible to ignore the hate speech in the Koran when presented with it and then shoot the messenger.

    did you see the fitma film? did you listen to what they said? it hardly represents both sides, i'd say that's an example of single minded thinking.

    Totally disgusting and abhorrent. The real Nazis are the Day of Respect foundation with their totalitarian PC thought control. Wilders should take them to court for defamation and libel and parents should also sue the schools that are using this pernicious and vile material.
