Persecuted Indonesian Christians will be thrilled to know that

Dutch Prime Dhimminister Jan Peter Balkenende has written a letter to Indonesia’s largest Muslim organisation, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), in which he says that the views presented in the anti-Qur’an film of populist leader Geert Wilders do not represent those of the Dutch government.
Mr Balkenende says the Dutch authorities cannot ban the film because it has never been broadcast. However, the Justice Ministry will take steps to do just that once the film has been released, but only if there are valid reasons to do so. The Dutch prime minister wrote the letter in response to an appeal by Indonesia’s religious leaders.
