Mr Joustra refused to elaborate on the exact nature of the threat, butÂ de VolkskrantÂ writes that Arab-language jihad sites are encouraging attacks on the Netherlands because of the Wilders film.

Gregorius Nekschot Will Visit Denmark
by Baron Bodissey
Steen is reportingÂ that the Dutch cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot will be the guest of honor at a Trykkefrihedsselskabet (the Free Press Society) meeting in Denmark next year.
As you may recall, Mr. Nekschot was arrested earlier this year for the “racist” content of his anti-immigrant political cartoons. If he can stay out of prison until his appointment in Copenhagen, he’ll have a chance to speak his mind in a country which still recognizes the right of free speech.
As of this writing, all the information on this topic is in Danish. Links to previous articles about Gregorius Nekschot are below the fold.
