It seems that Geert Wilders’ fifteen-minute film on the Qur’an, called Fitna , has a few nasty things to say about the Islamic text as well as some of the atavistic ideas imported into his country. So much so that it has caused the Netherlanderisherite government (I can never remember the correct adjective) to raise the terrorist threat level to “substantial.”

There hasn’t been this kind of scare over a movie since Lindsay Lohan made I Know Who Killed Me .

Seriously, though, given what happened to director Theo Van Gogh , there is probably good reason for concern.
