LIVELEAK.com removes "Fitna" after death threats
Liveleak ^ | Mar. 28, 2008

Posted on 03/28/2008 1:44:12 PM PDT by Alouette

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised LiveLeak.com is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.

Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture. We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.

Ah, those moderate, peace-loving muslims. I love the way they continue to prove out the stereotype that they protest.

It’s a good thing Islam is the Religion of Peace.

If it weren’t, things could get really nasty.

Islam is proving by it's works that it is SATANIC. No other conclusion is possible!

In the long run this move will make them less safe as this will only embolden muslims for further acts of violence.

The Jawa Report still has it.

Once it's on the net, it's on the net. They can pull it off their site, but it's still out there. On other sites with more anonymous backers, on hard-drives waiting to be file-shared, etc.

BTW, we could see that one coming a mile away. Rioting and threats are a natural response of the islamists whenever somebody tells the truth about them.

And yet the Socialisten Dutch find the filmmaker/politician to be an extremist racist making something out of nothing:

Caption this: Dutch protests of Geert Wilders' film 'Fitna' about Islamic tyranny.

"Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture."

The only discussion the islamists will have is one in which we unconditionally accept their culture. Period. I'd almost go so far to say that this sentence sounds like they think the film makers and their fans should "learn" from this experience in a way that allows them to "accept" the opposing culture, the very one that threatens to kill them.

Activists of hardline Pakistani Islamist party the Jamaat-e-Islami shout slogans at a demonstration in Karachi against the controversial film critical of Islam by a Dutch right-wing politician. Muslim countries warned Friday of strong reactions to an anti-Islam film posted on the Internet by far-right Dutch deputy Geert Wilders, though initial reactions in the Netherlands were calm.

Glad I got to view "Fitna" before it became history.

It is (was?) an extremely powerful documentary of Islamic brutality, thuggery and mid-evil mindset....all supported by passages from their holy book...the Quran.

Damn shame it is no longer available. Hopefully DVD's will surface in time.

Why on earth did this get removed from Breaking News. This is the first time I have EVER seen Liveleak.com remove a video...

Sounds like this video needs to be released all over the Internet if you ask me...

Above Freedom of Speech? Thank God we only have to depend on Live Leak for videos of funny dogs, and explosions.

Live Leak=p*****s. If I knew how to host and had the money to provide everyone with a view, I would. Live Leak does, and they are giving in to the ENEMY.

I hope the Live Leakers understand what Islam is about...although I fear they still would vote for Obama if the election was held today. And I know they would never be for restrictions on immigration and increases in deportation. This is why, in one form or another we will lose this war.

"This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else."

I totally agree. The more I think about this the more it makes me angry. When are we going to learn to value our freedom of speech? When we're all dhimmi? Men fought and died so we could have that freedom. They placed the freedom of speech for OTHERS above their own lives! And these cowards are unwilling to give their lives for their OWN freedom of speech. That's not only infuriating and sad, it's scary. It proves that we, as a society, are unwilling to even put ourselves at risk for our rights. If push comes to shove we'll just give them up without a fight! That should tell you something about how easy it will be for islamic extremists to take over. I know the people here are different, but liveleak and other popular websites are the reflection of our modern degraded society. The masses will cave and the rest of us will have to carry their dead weight in our fight to maintain our rights.

I watched it last night and glad I did.

It wasn’t what I expected (not as gory as I thought it could be)but an excellent film.

I got into another argument with my bible study facilitator last night (prior to watching the film) who insists that Islam isn’t a threat, that Mohammed is a prophet, the Koran doesn’t preach hate, Allah is just another name for Abraham’s God, our God.

If you download Realplayer, it will allow you to download and save almost any clip. When you pass your mouse over any clip it will give you the option to download it and save it. Also, Realplayer will play almost any file.

Has your Bible study facilitator ever spent time in the Middle East? If not, they haven't a clue. They are just buying into the pro-Muslim propaganda, because it sounds like something we want to hear.
