Dutch film calls for Christian-Jewish front

A controversial Dutch film on Islam calls for a Jewish-Christian alliance to face down radical Islamism.

“Fitna,” the film released online Thursday night by Geert Wilders, a controversial Dutch lawmaker, includes numerous examples of extreme anti-Jewish rhetoric, including calls by Islamic clerics to behead Jews.

Dutch authorities feared the film would spark outbreaks of violence by Muslims enraged by its content.
