Tribune: THE HAGUE: Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders claimed Saturday that the state broadcaster ‘sabotaged’ his planned airing of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on television.
“Sabotage by the NOS (broadcaster) everything was confirmed but not broadcast,” Wilders tweeted after a previous party political broadcast about immigration was aired instead of the cartoons.
“I will put the images on YouTube and next time on television even if I have to go to (the studios in) Hilversum,” Wilders said.
Wilders had said Friday that he would show the cartoons in the name of his Freedom Party (PVV) on Saturday morning and again on Wednesday and July 3.
Wilders said he was making the broadcasts to defend freedom of speech after two militants were shot dead while attacking a draw Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas last month.
