AMSTERDAM – The government has looked into whether the anti-Koran film from Geert Wilders can be banned before its release. Sources closed to the cabinet have confirmed this, the Telegraaf reports.

The government prosecutor has investigated whether there are legal grounds to prevent the film from being released.

Taking the matter to court would not be entirely hopeless, in light of the threats from abroad, the Telegraaf reports. A ban would come upon opposition from Labour PvdA however.

    yes to Wilders, Yes to everybody that can make Muslim aware that this is Europe and we have built our culture and freedom with centuries. If you Muslim want to live in EU change or go back from your country. And then let us know if there is better than here, do not come to EU if you are not going to change your life stile. This is a place of freedom not for burkas. Wake up Europe or these obsolete religion will desctroy our peace.
    Islam is a new religion they are now where Europen were at the end of Middleages. We had already our developpement process, now is their turn if they are not ready go back to your Muslim country and again let us know if there is better than Europe.
    Wilders and W all the other smart brain that defend out cultura.

    Your stupid thoughts shoud be banned.

    You're living in the fear already, before even anybody has seen the film! So!? We're living (unwillingly) in the fear anyway. And who's imposing it? Wilders definitely not! Stupid extremists.

    Why Dutch people sacrifice their own safety for the sake of this kind of stupid film? In the name of freedom? Come on! If then you live in fear ... that's not freedom anymore!
