"The best reaction by the Islamic world is to avoid buying products made in those countries that allow themselves to insult Islam," Iran's state broadcaster IRIB quoted parliamentary speaker Gholamali Haddadadel as saying.

Haddadadel said European countries "would retreat from the path they are taking once they see their economies are in danger".

Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-immigration Freedom Party in the Netherlands, launched his video on the Internet last month, drawing condemnation from EU, UN and Muslim nations.

Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the Dutch ambassador to Tehran last month to protest against the video and called it "heinous and blasphemous".
