This is the ONLY photo from the film in the wire coverage I see on Yahoo, everything else is of Geert Wilders or the protesters:

Wilders released a film criticizing Islam and its holy book the Quran on Thursday, March 27, posting it on a Web site. The Dutch government had warned Wilders that a film offensive to Muslims could spark violent protests in Islamic countries, like those two years ago after the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. Banner says: 'Extremist, will cause serious damage to you and society.' (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)

Muslim countries warned Friday of strong reactions to an anti-Islam film posted on the Internet by far-right Dutch deputy Geert Wilders, though initial reactions in the Netherlands were calm.

Also, what race is Islam? I know some followers believe non-muslims to be subhuman "kufir" but to oppose Islam imperialism is not racist. It is more "racist" to speak out against Aryan Nazism (since they defined themselves as a race) but it shouldn't have prevented the side of truth and justice from speaking out and denouncing Nazism.
Even native arabs and semites etc who are not muslim are considered second class citizens in muslim nations. Opposition to Islamic theocratic rule is not racism. Despite what these Dutch protesters claim.
Useful idiots alert
The Dutch denounce the film as racist while the Islamic protesters denounce the Dutch and the West altogether.
Fine print of the banner says "Internationale Socialisten".
More pinkos protesting on behalf of tyrants. Such was the history of the 20th Century too.
Must have just stumbled out of the coffee house...
Honestly, do the Dutch have a cultural suicide wish?
Can't these people get JOBS?????
I don’t know how many visit LiveLeak.com, but it has pulled this video due to...... you guessed it, death threats from the religion of PEEAACCEEEEEEE.
