Dutch counterterrorism officials notified Wilders of the plot and that the individual had been arrested.
Right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders has canceled a planned ‘draw Muhammad’ cartoon contest in the Netherlands after Islamic terrorists threatened to attack the event.
The announcement follows a threat by a Pakistani Muslim who posted a video to Facebook vowing to assassinate Wilders before he was arrested.
“The threats resulting from the cartoon contest are running out of control,” Wilders said in a statement posted to Twitter. “Now other people are in danger because of extremist Muslims who see not only me but the Netherlands as a target.”
“If innocent people are murdered then they and no one else are responsible. To avoid the risk of victims from Islamic violence, I have decided to cancel the cartoon competition,” he added.
