Twenty Percent of Dutch in Muslim Countries Expect Danger

Twenty percent of Dutch people living in Islamic countries expect problems resulting from the forthcoming screening of the movie on the Quran by Geert Wilders. Less than 10% have been given instruction by the Dutch embassies regarding precautions to be taken to ensure their safety. About half are concerned that the film will have negative effects on them. Over 50% of the 1,000 people polled expect a boycott of Dutch products as soon as the movie appears. The poll was carried out by the Dutch world radio service Wereldomroep. The screening of the Wilders movie is now planned for March.
