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."

Yes, painful indeed, but also beautiful.

Especially chilling is the beauty of the Arabic chanting of the Koranic texts, contrasted with what they are actually saying. Notably that one text, which I don’t recall having seen before, to the effect that we will burn you and then Allah will give you a new skin so we can burn you again—coming after the words of that woman on the phone from the WTC, and the pictures of the bombed buses and trains and victims of the bombings.

The film skirts extremely close to gratuitous violence, but IMHO never quite crosses the line.

It’s not pleasant reading something like Oedipus or King Lear, either, but they are still great works of art.

I think there was a bit of a delay between the publication of the cartoons and the rioting. First the imams had to whip up their true-believers into a frothing fury.

Every time I see that plane approaching the Trade Center and then disappearing within the building I get a wash of rage that comes over me.

I had an apartment on the Battery at that time. I was seated at the window having breakfast when the second plane came by my window on the 29th floor, before rising to hit the second tower behind me at a higher level.

I can briefly see my apartment building, with my window just at the left of the frame, as the plane flies toward the building in this film. Shortly afterward, we were evacuated, and I saw the flames coming from the plane-shaped holes in the two towers from a few blocks to the south.

In the years after it happened, I walked by Ground Zero many times, to try to come to terms with it and to pray for the dead.

Just FYI:

63 Muslim countries (as defined by the CIA) from Afghanistan to Zanzibar, without a single 9/11 WTC (non-hijacker) fatality.

4 Muslim countries with 9/11 WTC fatalities:
Indonesia (92% Muslim) 1 dead
Lebanon (75% Muslim) 3 dead
Nigeria (75% Muslim) 1 dead
Usbekistan (88% Muslim) 1 dead

Giving a grand total of 6 fatalities from møøselimb countries.

Just for comparison: 140 Israelis died in the rubble of the WTC...

Jeez Cicero. I can only imagine the anger in YOUR heart. After my visit to GZ and St. Paul’s I never what to see that hole in the ground again. I’m usually stone hearted, but that little visit broke me down a notch or two.

The truth is that real prophets go to the quiet of the desert to listen to God. This Muslim “god”, Allah is simply SATAN.

Many thanks for the link. I watched Fitna in Dutch. Hope someone captures and translate the film before the Islamofascists get out their scimitars.

Actually, there’s nothing in the film we haven’t seen before. Poor Netherlands is in great danger of being totally taken over by the creeps in sheets. If they don’t wise up and fight back, the best chocolate and beer in the world will be replaced by chickpeas and dates.

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

No, but there were at least 3 times where it mentioned honor killings and the graphic violence towards women.

Thanks for the link. Downloaded to my PC

They can try to suppress the film, but with many people downloading, and then uploading to youtube and elsewhere, they will not be able to suppress it

Good morning.
“I just don’t understand the positions that the MSM, Europe & the UN take on this subject.”

The charts in Fitna showing the dramatic increase in the number of Muslims in Europe in the last twenty years explains it somewhat.

Beyond their natural socialist leanings, the Europeans are terrified by the flood of Islamists.

no spine, don't care, cowered by the oil countries, intimidated by activist groups in their own country, indifferent to the impact it's having in their own country. old and think they will not have to deal with it, bribes like oil for food........

Pick one or any combination.

Good afternoon.

My wife and I have a friend/employee who fled Belgium more than a decade ago.

She has told us horror stories of the Islamization of Belgium and has a deep and abiding hatred of the “Musselmen”.

She speaks with her family live by computer from my wife's office each day and I've looked over her shoulder more than once.

Her family becomes angry and embarrassed when she brings up what is happening to Eurabia - angry at her.

She and her family are Jewish and her father watched the Nazis take her grandfather away to death. It's tragic to see what Europe has become.

Buy ammo.
