Update 3/30/08:

From Klein Verzet:
This Week: Fitna, The Movie

Fitna the movie - openings shot

Dutch parliamentary member Geert Wilders has announced that his Islam critical film named “Fitna” will be ready at the end of this week. The film, he announced, will soon have its own website:

www.fitnathemovie.com

Revealing fact is that the Dutch parliamentary member choose to host the website not from a server in The Netherlands, but from a server located in North America. Presumably to hold it out of reach of the Dutch government.

Next week, says Wilders, he will start negotiating with Dutch broadcasters to get his 15 minute film broadcasted in The Netherlands. A process that, according to him, can take up to several weeks. This could be sign that the movie will not be released the end of this week. But it could also be a way to put pressure on the Dutch broadcasters who don’t want to broadcast the whole movie, because they all politically oppose Wilders, but who at the same time would even sell their own mother for a scoop.

We keep you posted about the developments around the film Fitna. In the meantime, if people like to provide some free PR to the movie, they should create as many back links as possible to the website “fitna the movie”. This can be done by simply placing links to www.fitnathemovie.com. This can be done on you’re personal blog, other people’s blog comments, discussion forums, websites, etc.

Remember that massive YouTube outage last Sunday?

From The Times of India:
Pakistan lifts curbs on YouTube

26 Feb 2008, 2206 hrs IST, PTI

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani authorities on Tuesday lifted a ban on popular video-sharing website YouTube after it removed “objectionable content” insulting Islam.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had ordered about 70 internet service providers last week to block the website because it had hosted a trailer for a “blasphemous film” by Dutch politician Geert Wilders that portrays Islam in a negative light.

The move by Pakistani authorities to block access to the website caused an accidental near global blackout of YouTube on Sunday.

YouTube , which is owned by Google, said on Monday that an ISP complying with Pakistan’s ban had caused a blackout of the website on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Senate or upper house of Parliament strongly condemned the republication in Denmark of the blasphemous cartoons caricaturing Prophet Mohammed that were also posted on YouTube.

A resolution passed unanimously by the Senate said “serious tensions” are also brewing because of a “sacrilegious film against Islam” made by Wilders.

(Emphasis is ours.)

That’s right… the controversy even brought down YouTube!

These crude and heavy-handed efforts to stop people from watching Fitna will eventually backfire. The harder our foes work to censor vital political speech, the more attention it will get, and the more curiosity will be aroused. That’s just human nature; after all, if the movie warrants that much consternation, then what it contains must be very important indeed.

But even though totalitarian censorship fails in the long run, before that happens it always does enormous damage to human societies and to the human spirit. Geert Wilders’ movie is going to be huge – and it deserves every opportunity to reach its eagerly-awaiting audience.

Here’s where YOU come in:

  • Cross-post the Fitna movie announcement on your own blog.
  • Email the link to http://www.fitnathemovie.com to your friends.
  • Add the link to your bookmarks, favorites, or blogroll.
  • Publicize it on social news sites, forums, and relevant comments on blog posts.
  • Explain why this movie, and the freedom to distribute it and view it, is so important!

Wilders threatened? Sure! /sarc off!

Hope this film gets a lot of support.
Spread the word.

Gramfan,

There’s a tremendous amount of interest in the movie – but it needs our active support so that those people who want to see it will know where to find it, and to keep the lines of communication open so that people can get to it.

As always, it’s about freedom of speech and freedom of the press. It’s about protecting our inherent, God-given rights as human beings to speak and proclaim the truth. It’s our job to keep those rights from being violated. You deserve our thanks, once again, for working so hard to spread the word!

🙂

Contact me further on this. I think I follow from A to B to C what is going on in what is posted here but do not understand how it affects anything going on ‘out there’ in the common normal world. Forgive me my ignorance, please. Perhaps this said ignorance has something to do with my growing up in the center of Illinois.

GOD Bless,

Curtis,

Have you seen the trailer and the Geert Wilders interview videos? Links to them are provided at the end of the above article.

In a nutshell, Geert Wilders is showing us that the aggressive, expansionist, and indeed totalitarian characteristics of Islam are inherent in the Koran, and that this is what makes the ideology of Islam incompatible with the liberties that Western nations value (or claim to value).

The fact that Muslim organizations and governments are trying so hard to stop us from seeing the movie speaks volumes about the fact that the growing influence of Islam in the west is a danger to our rights and liberties, even in the US.

If you have more specific questions, please let us know.

Thanks,
1389

A good site with information on the Wilders movie:

Islamic countries teach hate against everyone of a not-Islam background, calling them infidel dogs that must be murdered, just watch this link: http://www.dumpert.nl/mediabase/20908/fa3e05ec/haatmuis_vervangen_door_killahbee.html
Islam is against gay’s and Imam’s commands muslims to throw gays off rooftops. Do gays go to war and fight moslems? No. Do normal thinking western people go to war after seeing the Islamic childrens show on tv? NO!

Us western people are 700 years further in our development and clearly have a better sense of judgement and common development.

Us western people are simply put, better in putting things in perspective and we are able to recognise a joke. The Islam clearly is not.

I hope Europe will get back to become an area where Islam is forced to adapt to our culture instead that the host has to change to suit to his guests.

Cheers,

Hans de Wit, a devout atheist

Posted the link to the site on my blog. Primarily to make sure I remember to check it regularly – Geert Wilders has as yet not mentioned when the film will be viewable.

Of course, the moment its online, the beandip hits the fan.

Kinda peeved at the reactions from the Muslim world – never thought they were such cinema-critics. They never said much about some of their own horrid productions – anybody remember Nick Berg?

Muhammad the founder of the worlds most intolerant religion is also a religion that puts women as second class to males. Everyone that does not believe Islam should be subjugated, converted or killed and those are Muhammad’s words from the Quaran. Those Muslims think they are superior to all others, and yet Muslims kill Muslims for not being Muslim enough. Muslim believers rape, plunder from others to fullfill their idiology of superiority, does not sould like a very tolerant religion. Leaders of Muslim lands try to keep their people from learning the knowledge of the world by censorship to keep them subserviant. To keep them uneducated is a way to keep them under control. Knowledge is power and if people who practice other faiths, or none at all must be tolerant of Muslim beliefs then why are they not held to the same standards? In America a University has decided to put a foot bath in for the students of Muslim faith, but yet they don’t allow for prayer or symbols for other faiths. I say why not make it Holy water blessed by a priest. What are they afraid of? 💡

Fitna, the Movie

11 Farooq March 8, 2008 at 5:12 am

“Little knowledge is dangerous thing” and same applies for those who don’t have enough and in-depth knowledge about Islam. Such people are just limited to the extent and believe whatsoever negative propaganda their media or literature portrays about Islam. Those who have misconceptions about Islam should read it carefully with open mind, from reliable sources, instead of “moving in circles” and criticizing just for the sake of criticism. Many Muslim Scholars have clarified the Misconceptions of Non Muslims about Islam and among them one is Dr. Zakir Naik. Those who are open minded can clarify their minds and study before commenting. One link is http://www.irf.net/irf/faqonislam/index.htm

12 Fah Cough March 16, 2008 at 3:29 pm

Farroq:

Your ‘faqonislam” is a tissue of lies. What about Mohammed being a murderer, rapist, and pervert who screwed little nine year old girls? What about him spreading his delusional “faith” by the sword?

What does your slick Dr. Naik have to say about that?

Why won’t he address those FACTS?

Don’t respond by saying stupid things about Christianity or Judaism, for I believe in neither.

Truth about islam by an ex-muslim lady (youtube)

Islam in Muhammad’s Own Words
http://www.prophetofdoom.net/

Islam is a caustic blend of paganism and twisted Bible stories.
Muhammad, its lone prophet, conceived his religion to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money.
He was a terrorist. And if you think these conclusions are shocking, wait until you see the evidence.
Critics of Prophet of Doom claim it is offensive, hatemongering, and unnecessarily violent.
We agree – but we didn’t write those parts.
They came directly from Islam’s scriptures.
Over the course of these pages, we quote from most every surah in the Qur’an
– putting each verse in the context of Muhammad’s life by quoting vociferously from Islam’s most trusted sources.

Dear all,

It is very shockingly amazing to hear and read about the contents of a movie by a Dutch parlimentarian, supposed to be a man with a great sense of responsibility which he is not.

I really feel very sorry for the voters who voted for such an idiot who rather than bridging the gap among the different cultures and religions is spreading hatred in the world by twisting the facts.

The fact should not be forgotten that Mr. Wilders is using rather misusing his position and the EU shoulder to fulfill his ill willed agendas to bring enemity between Muslims and Christians. What does he really want???

I would like to conclude on the yesterday’s report by Vatican that Islam has outnumbered the others and have become the most observed religion of the world, may i ask why???

Do both things have any connection??

love and peace for all

❓ It’s okay for Utube and Live leak and other websites to show Muslims beheading people and committing other atrocities…but it’s not okay to show a factual movie about the foundations of this destructive religion.
This world is doomed if we dont stop wake up!!!

19 Jason February 27, 2009 at 5:37 am

Islam has already gone too far. American Corporation are afraid of the muslims making threats and so they bow down to them.

http://www.fitnathemovie.com is out of business, thanks to Network Solutions and Qwest Communications. Americans are going to start targetting any organization that sides WITH islam, so they are between a rock and a hard place.
