Dutch Government Afraid of Muslim Terror Attacks and Boycotts

Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende has expressed publicly great concern regarding the proposed broadcasting of the documentary on the Quran, violence and incitement by Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders. Balkenende said that he has never before experienced such a situation. The government is afraid of terrorist attacks, threats and an economic boycott of Dutch products. The Prime Minister has said that he does not exclude the possibility that people might get killed. Balkenende based his announcement on an analysis by the National Coordinator of Fighting Terrorism. This analysis also indicated that the situation may lead to attacks against Muslims and mosques in the Netherlands.
