A Jordanian Muslim group has filed a lawsuit in a protest gesture against a Dutch lawmaker for his anti-Quran film portraying Islam as a ticking bomb against Western democracy. The group, named Rassoul Allah Yajmana - or "The messenger of God unites us" in Arabic - said it filed the suit Tuesday against Dutch politician Geert Wilders for his 15-minute film entitled "Fitna," Arabic for "ordeal." The film, posted on the Internet earlier this year, sparked fury among Muslims worldwide.
