Now that Geert Wilders is free from the threat of prosecution (at least in the Netherlands) for making Fitna, he has decided to rest on his laurels and not do anything else controversial…
Today’s NIS has the story. My favorite quote: “I do not have to keep to the laws of banana republics like Jordan and Saudi Arabia.”
Wilders Weighs Fitna Sequel
Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders is considering making a sequel to his anti-Islam film Fitna.
After investigating dozens of complaints against the politician, the public prosecutor’s office (OM) decided on Monday that none of these indicate punishable offences. “The decision of the OM is a good overture to a book of Fitna 2,” Wilders said yesterday.
Wilders yesterday also asked Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen to summon the Jordanian ambassador in The Hague. A prosecutor in that country is preparing a case against Wilders for insulting Islam.

“I do not have to keep to the laws of banana republics like Jordan and Saudi Arabia,” Wilders explained. The Dutch OM’s decision not to prosecute him “should be presented in golden gift-wrapping to those lunatics in Amman.”
The threat of a possible international arrest from Jordan worries Wilders. In the Netherlands as well, Muslim organisations still continue to feel that Wilders’ criticism of Islam is an offence; they are going to ask judges to force the OM to prosecute after all.
