Tehran, April 28 (DPA) Iran is to counter the anti-Islamic video Fitna (Discord) made by Dutch legislator Geert Wilders with two documentary films, Fars news agency reported Monday. The Iranian films are titled Reply to Fitna and Beyond Fitna and aimed at what the filmmakers call neutralizing the “plot” by the Dutch against Islam.

The two Iranian filmmakers have also declared their readiness to have a debate with Wilders over his film.

Tehran has condemned the anti-Islamic video, terming it “insulting and anti-Islamic” and symbolic for the “deep antagonism” of some Western states towards Islam and Muslims.

The Iranian foreign ministry last month summoned the Dutch ambassador to Tehran to lodge a protest against Wilders’ video.
