The Dutch Malaysian dairy company Dutch Lady has taken out full page ads in various newspapers to "strongly condemn this expression against Islam"--namely, "Fitna." It begins:

Dear Valued Malaysians,

Gee, do you think the salutation is unctuous enough?

Like all right-thinking persons, Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad wishes to strongly denounce and condemn the opinions and statements made in the film "Fitna" produced by right-wing politician Geert Wilders.

Sheesh. As a result, we at Dutch Lady are planning to distribute to every Valued Malaysian who purchases a pint of cream a Dutch flag and box of matches....OK, they didn't say that but the letter continues:


Our objection to this film is also shared and strongly voiced by the Dutch government...

It goes on from there, but you get the drift (utter self-abasement)...

Two things:

1) If utter self-abasement isn't your style, here is an online petition to sign in defense of Geert Wilders that promises a boycott Dutch goods in the event that the Dutch government takes action against him for exercising freedom of speech. (A good place to start such a boycott  would be Dutch Wimp, I mean, Dutch Lady.)

2) Hugh Fitzgerald asks an excellent question at Jihadwatch: What makes Geert Wilders "right-wing" anyway?

Meanwhile, the International Herald Tribune reports:

Dutch Ambassador Lody Embrechts said Tuesday that the film's release was regrettable but has called on people to refrain from boycotting Dutch goods and engage in dialogue instead.

After total Dutch capitulation, what more is there to say?
