Jordanian MPs want Dutch envoy dismissed over anti-Koran film

At least 53 deputies of Jordan's 110-member lower house of parliament on Sunday signed a memorandum urging the government to "dismiss" the Dutch ambassador to Amman following anti-Koran film by a Dutch lawmaker.

"The memorandum calls on the government to sever diplomatic ties with the Netherlands and dismiss the Dutch ambassador," parliamentarians said.

The 16-minute film titled Fitna, an Arab word for sedition, was made by Dutch legislator Geert Wilders, who has a history of inciting hatred.

The film is drawing stong reactions in the Arab and Islamic worlds, including calls for boycott of Dutch products.
