Here is open bloodlust and Islamic supremacism, in a film produced by Muslims for Muslims — indeed, for Muslim children. Will the OIC denounce this film? Will Ban Ki-Moon and Louise Arbour? If not, why not? Why exactly is Fitna worse than this? “Child Stabs President Bush to Death and Turns the White House into […]
But no, they have never taken this kind of action, never expressed this kind of indignation, against the violent Muslims depicted in the film. “Islamic countries want Dutch to ban Wilders movie,” by Sebastiaan Gottlieb for Radio Netherlands: The ambassadors of 26 Islamic countries want the Netherlands to investigate whether the film Fitna made by […]
Score one for freedom.
In an effort to calm things down, doncha know. Death Of Free Speech Update: “Dutch minister tries to calm Muslims over ‘anti-Koran’ film,” from RIA Novosti (thanks to Twostellas): THE HAGUE, March 31 (RIA Novosti) – The Dutch prosecutor’s office is preparing to take legal action against the maker of an ‘anti-Koran’ film in an […]
I just completed a phone interview with a FoxNews reporter (whom I will not name at this point) about Fitna. It was a bit strange that I gave long replies to his questions and then only heard him typing very briefly as I was speaking, but maybe he is a fast typist. In any case, […]
Registering an objection to the education of girls. “Security forces find 58 bodies in Kohat: Girls” primary school attacked in Darra,” from the Daily Times (thanks to Twostellas): …School attacked: Meanwhile, militants blew up the gate of a girls” primary school in the semi-tribal Darra Adam Khel area late on Saturday, a Daily Times staff […]
See? Islam really is peaceful “Geert Wilders is a Christian terrorist” — here again is the equation of the depiction of violent acts by Muslims with the commission of those acts. “Muslim hardliners in Indonesia rally over Dutch film,” from Reuters (thanks to Chris): JAKARTA (Reuters) – About 50 members of a hardline Indonesian Muslim […]
As I noted yesterday, the reactions of Muslim moderates to Fitna are illuminating in many ways. And so here is another, “The real Fitna,” by the English convert to Islam Yusuf Smith (“Indigo Jo”) at his blog (thanks to Jihad Watch reader Esther): The flaws are not hard to spot. This is basically Jihad Watch […]
Here is another article I wrote on Fitna: “Geert Wilders’ ‘Fitna’: Insightful and Inciteful,” the featured piece at Human Events today: Geert Wilders” much-anticipated film on the Qur’an, Fitna, was released on LiveLeak.com on Thursday, pulled by LiveLeak on Friday after death threats, and by Saturday couldn’t be stopped: it had gone viral, having been […]
I discuss the fitna over Fitna today at Pajamas Media: Fitna in Arabic means discord or upheaval; it is also the name of a new sixteen-minute film by Dutch politician Geert Wilders that appeared last Thursday, and has done nothing since then but”¦create fitna. The expected riots and violence did not materialize: in Karachi, a […]
This is another Meccan sura. In the first part of Muhammad’s career, a group of Muslims migrated from Arabia to Abyssinia. One of the Muslims recited the material here about Mary and Jesus to the Christian ruler of Abyssinia, showing him that Muslims believed in Jesus, but not as the Son of God. After the […]
“‘I equate evangelism with terrorism,’ Religious Affairs Minister Ghoulamullah said in an article in L”Expression on February 12.” That’s from “Algeria: Officials Order Closure Of 19 Protestant Congregations: Police in Muslim country detain Christians for carrying Bibles,” from Compass Direct (thanks to DMartyr).
All right that does it. We need some people to infiltrate Islam with a Muslim version of the Glory and Praise hymnal ASAP. (If you are not Catholic and don’t get the joke, consider yourself…lucky). From Reuters The Vatican recently put the number of Catholics in the world at 1.13 billion people. It did not […]
Just imagine for a second if any of these MPs had gotten this angry at any one of the Islamic preachers and jihadists depicted in Wilders’s film. “Jordanian MPs want Dutch envoy dismissed over anti-Islam film,” from DPA (thanks to Twostellas): Amman – At least 53 deputies of Jordan’s 110-member lower house of parliament on […]
Watch for the howls of protest to come, in which the possibility of Al-Qaeda’s actually obtaining such viruses will be lost amid cries of “racism” and infringement of privacy, etc. “M15 in terrorist checks on 800 killer virus labs,” by Jason Lewis in the Daily Mail (thanks to Sr. Soph): MI5 and anti-terrorist police are […]
Yes, Mr. Smith! Geert Wilders made up that equation of Islam with violence all by himself! It isn’t as if any Muslim ever quoted the Qur’an to justify violence! Oh, no! That has never happened! “Australia denounces anti-Islam film,” from The Age (thanks to all who sent this in): Australia has added its voice to […]
The reaction of Muslim moderates to Geert Wilders’s film Fitna is in many ways just as illuminating as that of their fiercer coreligionists. In “The Fitna farce” in The Guardian‘s “Comment Is Free” blog, Ali Eteraz, with whom I’ve had several exchanges in the past, and whom I have not found to be a completely […]
This was just posted at a jihadist website — and here is a Google translation of that site. “If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions,” with a picture of Osama bin Laden (I gather this is a quote from […]
“We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” – Benjamin Franklin “Dutch businesses threaten to sue over anti-Islam film,” from Agence France-Presse: THE HAGUE (AFP) “” Dutch businesses Saturday threatened to sue far-right lawmaker Geert Wilders if his anti-Islam film led to a commercial boycott, as several more Muslim countries condemned […]
