European Commission braces for anti-Islam film

The European Commission warned all of its offices around the world ahead of a film criticizing the Quran by a Dutch politician. “We have informed our delegations that the film – due for release soon, although we don’t know exactly when – could draw protests,” said EU external relations commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner’s spokeswoman, Christiane Hohmann. Hohmann continued that no alarm should be raised, but it is important to be prepared, and to monitor the issue as needed.
