Fitna فتنة: The true face of Fitna
Geert Wilders the notorious dutch right-wing controversy (and attention) seeker have released to the web "Fitna" the movie about Quran after all the broadcasting organizations in the Nietherlands have decided not to run it.
Prime minister and the cabinet found it very offensive and can't be shown even censored. Wilders have released it before to the web, but this time I will probably not be taken down
The movie if it can be considered a movie is childish at best. It's really offensive and I will not be posting a link to it
The movie fails to capture the artistic level of the movie that killed Theo Van Gogh under the name "Submission"
I saw the movie
I saw how it took words of Quran out of context and used them as indications of terror, and violence.
The movie opens up with pictures of 9/11, only to harvest sympathy from the world. As they have become the face of terror. But doesn't.
To tell you the truth, I found stuff from the moron Zakarya Butros that are way offensive and would strike a deeper nerve (even though they are preposterous as well)
And to equate Islam with Nazism, and Communism is just taking it to another level by a racist Islamophobe.
The movie is juvenile at best and plain prejudice and full of hate. Similar the the kind of hate that the Muslims are suffering from everywhere. Not because of external factors, but because a bunch of thugs decided to hijack our religion and convert it to thier Ultimate Gang in the name of Allah, when everything that God has said, and everything that the prophet Mohammad has preached disowned these "thugs"
Here are the right translations for the Sura's that were cited in the little movie:
8:60 Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know
During war, it's a sound tactic to amass the forces before the hostilities start. This is exactly what the United States and 30 other countries did against Iraq in 1990. There's nothing wrong with this from a strategic or a tactical point of view. Had Saddam at the time been reasonable, he would have probably noticed that he's at a much greater disadvantage and war could have been averted all together.
This verse does not call for Terror! Terror here is meant as fear. It's only logical that people accept such matter because they are facts of life
That's the first and main verse that many cite as proof that Islam instigates violence and terrorism. When Islam is completely against it! Even against the enemies, Islam calls for humane treatment of noncombatant, women, children, the elderly and even animals, houses and plants
That is my Islam, and what the "thugs" promote is not
This is not the end of it, here's what my "security advisers" told me
[Advisor] assesses that the release of this controversial film could lead to large-scale protests in Muslim countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, some of which have the potential to turn violent. It is also assessed that the highest risk of violence or attacks on Dutch embassies and institutions, nationals and interests is in countries with a history of violence over Islamic issues.
There is also the possibility that the retransmission of the film or reportage by Western media could result in protests or attacks against other European and Western interests and/or travelers in these countries.
[Advisor] will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as warranted.
- Travel to the Netherlands can proceed.
- [Advisor] Members are advised to avoid all protests and large public gatherings, especially those held against the release of the controversial short film about the Koran.
- [Advisor] Members are advised to maintain extra vigilance while outside after dark, and to avoid groups of youths, who often gather on street corners. Visitors unfamiliar with the area should avoid straying outside central areas after dark.
- Members are also advised to maintain a heightened sense of awareness and enhance personal security measures.
Apparently, security advisors are taking no chances and they seem to be bracing for a very long and hard turmoil over this one!
Now, can someone explain to me why do some people enjoy poking a sleeping bear?
Ok, if you're really persistent and want to watch this movie badly, (Warning the movie contains some very strong images, so viewer discresion is advised)
