Dutch MP Geert Wilders lives in fear because of Islamist threats against his life. He denounced Turkish President Abdullah Gul on the latter's visit to Amsterdam.

Geert Wilders

Turkish president Abdullah Gul wrapped up a three-day visit to the Netherlands on April 19 that was mainly about trade relations but was also marked by a pointed exchange of insults with a Dutch politician concerning religion.

Referring to relations between Turkey's Islamist-led government and the country's religious and ethnic minorities, opposition Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders - who has been given 24-hour police protection because of Islamist death threats that emerged from the release of his short movie 'Fitna' - called Gul a "Christian-bullier," "friend of Hamas" (the militant Islamist movement in the Palestinian territories) and "Kurd-basher."

Ethnic Kurds within Turkey have accused the government of human rights violations. In addition, Armenians continue to demand recognition of the genocide of Armenians and other Christians by the Ottoman Turks some 100 years ago.
