This study explores from a religious-studies perspective the responses of leaders of various religious and humanist organizations in the Netherlands, both Islamic and non-Islamic, to criticism of Islam. In particular, it asks what the factors are that shaped those responses. The focus of this study is on the response to five expressions that can be seen as critical of Islam and/or anti-Islamic: the film Submission by Theo van Gogh and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the film Fitna by Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the internet film An interview with Mohammed by Ehsan Jami, the Danish cartoon affair and the Swiss ban on the building of minnarets.
