New anti-Islam film in the making...

If one is not enough, rightwing Dutch MP Geert Wilders has told the Dutch De Telegraaf newspaper that he is planning to make a follow-up to his controversial anti-Islam film, Fitna. The maverick MP and leader of the opposition Freedom Party says his new piece will deal with the negative effects of what he calls 'the advance of Islam' in Western countries.
He hopes to receive help from professional film-makers in the United States and says the new film should be ready next year.
A court in Amsterdam last year ruled that Mr Wilders should be prosecuted for inciting hatred and discrimination. Fitna (the word means 'strife' or 'ordeal' in Arabic), is being cited as part of the evidence against him.
I'm not sure what his real purpose is, but if will create some uproar again...
