Geert Wilders and the Anti-Muslim Movie Fitna

Geert Wilders and the Anti-Muslim Movie Fitna

This chapter consists of an analysis of H Gerrt Wilders’ controversial anti-“Islamisation” film Fitna, and of the polemics that both preceded and followed its release. To do justice to this debate, both Wilders’ criticism of Islam and the response it generated will be described, contextualised and assessed. In addition, the chapter will present a more broad discussion about the important role played by new information and communication technologies in the discourse on Muslims in Europe, with both detractors and defenders of Islam increasingly turning from the older print medias to the high-speed, and sometimes volatile, discussion-climate of the Internet.
