Movie Portrays Islam as Violent and Bloodthirsty
Arutz 7 ^ | March 28, '08 | Hillel Fendel

Posted on 03/28/2008 8:34:42 AM PDT by Nachum

(IsraelNN.com) The long-awaited and controversial movie Fitna, which graphically portrays Islam as a religion seeking to dominate the world and slaughter non-believers, finally debuted on the internet on Thursday night.

Within two hours of the film's release on Britain's LiveLeak.com video site, close to two million people had seen it. More than half of them were from Holland, home to the film's producer, Dutch politician Geert Wilders.

The screening of the movie had been in doubt after the world's largest website name registrar, Network Solutions, decided to block the movie's home site. The decision to censor the film bolstered concerns that the extent of the fear of Islamic violence has even affected WWW content.

On Thursday, the UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution against the movie. Proposed by Islamic countries, the resolutiion passed by a 21-10 vote, over the opposition of Europe and Canada.

Despite all, LiveLeak stepped in to film the movie, at , explaining, "There was no legal reason to refuse Geert Wilders the right to post his film on LiveLeak.com, and it is not our place to censor people based on an emotive response." Many websites feared even to list the URL at which the movie could be seen.

Response to the film has not been as intense as feared - though Dutch police had upped security precautions to near-top levels. The movie was condemned by Iran, Indonesia, and the Netherlands, but no rioting or other reactions like those that followed the publication in Denmark of anti-Mohammed cartoons have broken out.

Fitna includes graphic footage of Moslem terror attacks around the world, including beheadings, disfigured bodies, destroyed buses, and the like. The scenes are accompanied by the relevant verses in the Koran, such as, "Prepare for them whatever force and cavalry ye are able of gathering to strike terror, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah and your enemies." This particular verse is followed by clips of a plane slamming into the World Trade Center and setting the building afire, and imams calling for the annihilation of all infidels.

One Moslem cleric is seen calling for the murder of Jews; he unsheathes a sword and cries out in nearly uncontrollable frenzy, "By Allah, we shall cut off the Jew's head! Allah is great! Allah is great! Jihad for the sake of Allah!" The audience, in a similar frenzy, cheers him on.

The film ends with the sound of a page being torn out of a book, followed by stark sentences on the screen reading, "It is not up to me, but up to Moslems themselves to tear out the hateful verses from the Koran. Muslims want you to make way for Islam, but Islam does not make way for you. The government insists that you respect Islam, but Islam has no respect for you. Islam wants to rule, submit, and seeks to destroy our Western civilization. In 1945, Nazism was defeated in Europe. In 1989, Communism was defeated in Europe. Now, the Islamic ideology has to be defeated."

I was surprised it didn’t go into graphic details of the stoning of women who are said to have committed adultery.

I wathced it last night. It is scary to see the world making the same mistakes that were made in the 1930s. There will be a war between the Islamic world and the civilized world, it is just a matter of when. I say light the fuse now and get it over with. Don’t wait for the enemy to become stronger and maybe even gain control of nukes. But that’s just me.

Too bad limp-wristed Europe doesn’t have a strong bunch of real U.S. men to come save their asses this time. We’re too busy applying skin conditioners and getting manicures to even notice that our own country is being invaded.

They are afraid. The bloom is off Islam and soon they will not generate they fear they do now. Then they are doomed.

Any religion that has the notion of a “jihad” is not a religion, but a bloody cult.

The war between Islam and the civilized world has been going on for 1400 years. Civilization just refuses to bring it to an end.

America’s entrance into that war is immortalized in the 2nd line of the Marine Corp Hymn.

Iran is now condemning the film. Its funny, considering the film shows Iran hanging gays and Mamood A. saying Islam will take over the world.

God Bless everyone responsible for this film. Truth requires great courage. Pray hard for Wilders, for the Dutch, for the timid world that is at stake here.
Let the last Crusades begin, here-now- with each one of us who can see a horrifying truth and fight it.

Very much worth seeing. I’ve watched it several times. Hard to object to it, since all it does is let the Muslims portray THEMSELVES for what they are.

I seriously don't know if any of the channels talk about anything other than the election 2008. It's Hillary this and Obama and that what they do put on in between is fluff news.

notice how none of the media accounts talk about the fact that it is ALL islam in its OWN WORDS.

Direct from Quran
Direct from the speakers

Direct images of islamic directed attrocities which are word for word sanctioned in islam.

There's no doubt in my mind that the "angel" that visited Mohammed was the "light-bearer," or Lucifer.

Congratulations to this brave film-maker.

There will be a war between the Islamic world and the civilized world, it is just a matter of when.

The war has been going on, in hot and cold phases, for 1300 years. Remember the Crusades? America is just new to the party.

It's making big news in the Netherlands:

De Telegraaf (a daily paper) has it on their home page, but down about 1 screen. There are five separate stories about the film.

Algemeen Dagblad, another daily newspaper, has a few stories, also down one screen. At the top banner, you can click to view the movie (Bekijk hier Fitna).

De Standaard, a Dutch language newspaper in Belgium, has a story about it on the top of its website, but the article is about the reaction in Netherlands. They also have a link to view ("Bekijk")

The movie is in Dutch, or at least, it has Dutch subtitles to Arabic or whatever the people are speaking when they aren't speaking Dutch.
