Dutch MP Wilders publishes Islam movie
BBC News ^ | Thursday, 27 March 2008, 18:29 GMT | BBC web-editor

Posted on 03/27/2008 11:46:44 AM PDT by Dutchguy

Dutch right-wing politician Geert Wilders has posted a film which is critical of Islam's holy book, the Koran, on the internet. The short film, which he says describes Islam as "the enemy of freedom", was posted on a video-sharing website.

He has called Islam's holy book a "fascist" text that incites violence.

This is the only moment in recent history that I think I can proudly tout my Dutch heritage. Wilders is my hero of the week!

It's probably not the film itself that's not suited for young people, but certain accurate depictions of some modern Muslim practices.

Liveleak disclaimer
Liveleak.com presents "Fitna the Movie"

LiveLeak.com has a strict stance on remaining unbiased and allowing freedom of speech as so far as the law and our rules allow. There was no legal reason to refuse Geert Wilders the right to post his film (Fitna) on LiveLeak.com and it is not our place to censor people based on an emotive response. We in no way endorse Geert Wilders, his views, nor the views expressed within Fitna. To many of us involved in LiveLeak.com some of the messages therein are personally offensive. That being said, our being offended is no reason to deny Mr Wilders the right to have his film seen. Pre-emptive censorship or a discriminatory policy towards freedom of speech are both things we oppose here on LiveLeak.com. A person has a simple, clear choice about whether to view this film. No one is being forced to view it and nor is it being broadcasted on every channel on their television set. If you click on media simply to be annoyed, it is pointless to blame others for your choice.

We do not intend on defending the content of Fitna, only our choice to allow it. Anyone has the full right of reply on LiveLeak.com. Any person or organizations are free to post their opinion and, dependent on said response falling within both the law and our rules, we will afford such responses equal exposure. There are undoubtedly better ways to spark a discussion but this film is now out there and we believe we should all grasp this opportunity to create an open dialogue and discussion on this subject.

I hope this gets the muslim freaks boiling with anger and madness, to the point where their brains explode. Like in “Mars Attacks” This film will be like Slim Whitman to them.

Most of this I have seen before, but probably the majority have not. It was mild compared to the full length documentaries.

I don’t think there will be any disclaimers when liveleak allows angry, Jew-hating, Christian-hating venom filled hate-mongering videos from the religion of peace.

I watched the first minute and was so pissed off I had to stop.

Maybe next he can do a movie on how the democrats and the media are conspiring to lose the WOT.

I just watched the entire video. My emotions are raw! As I watched the video of the planes flying into the towers, my first thought was, “How soon we have forgotten”. It was when he got to the part of Nicholas Berg's beheading, that I lost it.

This must be shown far and wide. Especially by Christians. This is not a war between East and West, but between God's people and Satan's followers. This is a religion that worships Satan. Islam is vile, and evil. If we sit back and do nothing we have no one to blame but ourselves. Thank God for Pres. Bush and our troops for fighting this evil. And may God protect MP Wilder.

Please try to see it though and hope that it has a galvanizing effect on everyone who sees it.

Gutsy bit of video, that... And, nothing false or misleading about it. That probably explains why the muzzies want it buried somewhere...with Wilders, I’d guess.

And may God protect MP Wilder.

He's going to need that level of protection. The ironic part is that in killing him the Muslims will have proven him right.

Still up at Hot Air, which has the same Live Leak Version, along with much discussion and many other good links.

Great! At the time of posting I was only aware of the Dutch version. Amazing how quickly things can spread across the net.
