The Dutch Aren't Backing Down Either

Iran seems to be running into a stone wall when it comes to asking the West to betray it's beliefs in order to stay in line with Islam's dictates. First Denmark, now Holland:
Iranian government Urges Netherlands To Ban Qur’an Film

The Iranian justice minister, Gholam Hussein Elham, wrote to his Dutch counterpart, Ernst Hirsch Ballin, calling for a ban. He urged Ballin to prevent this "provocative and satanic act on the basis of European Convention on Human Rights.

"We must not allow the freedom of speech … to be used as a cover for assaulting the sensibilities, and exalted moral and religious values which are respected by all of humanity," Elham said in the letter.
Holland has declined to do Iran's censoring. Good for them. The Dutch have, however, made plans to evacuate their nationals from the Middle East when the predictable Muslim violence begins.
