Syrian Grand Mufti Claims that Wilders will be Held Responsible for Bloodshed

The Grand Mufti of Syria Ahmad Badr al-Din al-Hassoun, during a speech in the European Parliament, said that, if the planned film on the Quran by Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, results in violence or bloodshed, Wilders will be held responsible. This will be even more serious if the Quran is burned or torn up in the movie. The mufti added that it is the responsibility of the Dutch people to prevent Wilders from doing such things. Wilders’ recent statements have led to major worries in the Dutch cabinet. Police in a number of major cities are already preparing for possible riots once the movie is shown.
