Fitna: The Movie, And The Petition On Behalf Of Geert Wilders

According to IMDb:
Fitna is a film by Dutch politician Geert Wilders, leader of the Party for Freedom in the Dutch parliament. The movie offers a critical view of Islam and the Koran. The name comes from the Arabic word fitna which is used to describe "disagreement and division among people", or a "test of faith in times of trial".
The webpage begins with: "Warning! This synopsis contains spoilers"
If there is anything in this movie that you don't already know about, you've been asleep.

Then again, if you have--you are not alone.

A full overview of the video is available on Wikipedia

Of course, the film was greeted with criticism--instead of the violence the movie discusses.
The ambassadors of 26 Islamic countries want the Netherlands to investigate whether the film Fitna made by Dutch right-wing populist MP Geert Wilders can be banned. They asked Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen whether it is possible to start legal proceedings against the anti-Islam film. The meeting at the ministry in The Hague was attended by ambassadors of countries including Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
Here is a petition you can sign on behalf of Geert Wilders, who made the film.
