Film Fitna pulled after multiple threats "of a very serious nature" to staff of web host

Film Fitna now on Google video!

Yes, after about 24 hours Geert Wilder's film Fitna was pulled by video-hosting site LifeLeaks, after receiving "a barrage of threats":

In place of the video Friday afternoon, a brief and poignant message appears on-screen: "Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature.... LiveLeak has been left with no choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

"This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net.... We would like to thank the thousands of people from all backgrounds and religions who gave us their support."


Google has picked up another copy, shown below:

La seule vrai vérité contre les fanatics sans bornes qui continu leur terreur à travers le monde, je suis d'accord pour s'il le faut à offrir résistance et risposte si ça continu, les croisades devrais revenir le faire comprendre que la jihad ammene la violence.

This is the best film ever.
It's honest, enlightening, motivating, empowering, depressing.
It made me laugh and cry.

It's far from the "best film ever". The film's main weakness is its equation of Islam with extremism; they are not the same thing. Wilders' simplification seems to miss the necessary nuance to be considered "best".

Nevertheless we can't ignore that many people use Islam to further their own causes; but that includes Geert Wilders himself.

You can't equate Islam with extremism, it is the way it is and some extremists interpret it and take it to heart in a different way than others. I can say that some parts of the Kuran are enlightening and useful, but there are without a doubt parts in the Kuran that are racist and are an appeal to incite violence and hatred. Geert Wilders merely states that those parts of the Kuran need to be removed. It's not explicit, but I believe he may be implying that 'many people are not as critical and as good at thorough reasoning as others and may take these parts of the Kuran very seriously', since there are people that have seen the Kuran in this way (which he shows with various footage), many people have died due to those 'extremists'. If there is nothing that can invoke violence in the Kuran, then there can be no extremists in the first place.

I apologize for any grammar errors, and I meant to spell it Quran (or Qu'ran).

Fitna is powerful because Wilders uses the words and images from Muslims themselves. Had Wilders produced a 17 minute commentary using his own words, one could have seen it as shallow drivel. Does Fitna accurately reprsent Muslims? Far from it. But that is not the point. A few people can shape the image of a religion by their words and actions. If one thinks of Catholicism, the pope only represents one person out of millions. Yet in the eyes of his followers and the general public, he represents practically all of Catholicism.

Mé said...

That should be Roman Catholicism.

Everyone need to be aware that Islam does want to take over..in Britain they now have their own banking system and will lead to integrated politics and possible end to Britishness as we know it..the radicals have their fingers and are too blind to the submissive brainwashing polices and that does truely reflect the Real Islam but the radical twist which has been seized upon by various peoples mis interpretation of what Islam is all about...if people continue with this radicalism whay are the top radicals not taking upon themselves to commit attrocities rather than the brain wash the younger generation who blindly follow and do not question what they are being fed...this is dangerous and i do believe GOD himself gave us a brain to think for ourselves to be good human beings and help one another rather than commit suicide in the name of Allah...who has been to Heaven and seen the 50 virgins they keep talking about...show me this person..poor souls who get brainwashed.

As I live in a Muslim country, I'm not amaze to see that movie. They call Islam as peace religion but they can't hide that verses (Al-Anfal, the first Sura of the film, is translated 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."). Killing is peace to them. Taking others' life is legal. They (Islam) want to be respect but won't respect others.

No matter how hard Islam call them self as peace religion but their bible (Quran) calls for killing. Who is telling the lie? You who trust the Quran? or The Quran who You believe?

Well, Moslem doest like any hurt n killin'. Its not true U know.. okay, get lookin back,:
1. WHOS BEHIND THE WAR in IRAQ??
2. WHOS BEHIND THE WAR OF JEWISH N MOSLEM IN PALESTINE?
3. WHOS BEHIND THE WAR OF IRAQ N KUWAIT??

I THINK u KNOW THE ANSWER.....

MOSLEM IS JUST KINDA LIKE victim U know, we know that nasrani neva like us. But Moslem aint same with Christian. In Qur'an there's an Ayah state that the closest religius relation of moslem is NASRANI not Jewish, so why did U do it all Holland?

HEY, U dont know Qur'an deeply..

As for the film, the Quran was taken out of text, they used words, twisted it, and make you believe that is really in the Quran. If one was smart enough they would go look up those stated, on the internet to read the whole verse and know the real meaning of it. As for attacking others and religion, we in today's society should grow up and learn how to tolerate others, what makes one better then anouther? Has there not been enough blood shed in this world we need to keep blaming religions? No! We are to blame, for not standing up, for not tolerating each other, and for being so blind and raciest, it is coming to anouther HOLOCOST where history repeats itself.
As for the film maker, I see him as someone who wants to profit only on making the fitna( means= problems)for religions to hate each other, a now-a-days HITLER! guess he has balls now, but how can you sleep at night knowing you made such trash?

anton said...

This is very very bad film !!. It doesn't reflect the peacefully of Islam in the world. If you all think and looking back of what the catholic or christian people did to all the nations in the world. They made several terorism action, such as imperialism, war and rape women in the country that they had occupied. If you looked back of what the dutch did in Indonesia, they made such terorism as they occupied Indonesia as an imperialism catholics, the dutch killed and tortured the Indonesian with cold blooded...!!!

This Film is just like the title, Fitna means blame something or someone which/who never do the thing accused.
Wilders takes benefit of freedom to provoke Muslim with another in order to get attention from publics and hoping people get influenced to choose him in elections just because his famed. But one thing for sure, Muslim will not be provoked by him because there so much things more important than giving attention to his crazy paradigm.
This film is so Crazy and have no base at all, it's just a kind of provocation. Al Qur'an couldn't be described and translated as easy like that, Al Qur'an is Allah's Language, only selected people who got guide from Allah can understand it exactly....

The muslims are just upset you through a wrench in he works. There Whole goal is to take over the world with there False religion by an evil self appointed prophet. It is time for the truth to come out. They what everyone to do as they say but they do not want to compromise with no one and think they are right. Before everyone gives into there demands. How about they start treating evryone else with the respect they demand. They brainwash the weak minded to carry out there dirty work. Bring it on these people have know Idea of what they are starting. Islam knows no peace and never will, and for you Islamic sympathizers, one they don't need you anymore they'll do the same to you that they do to everyone else. Wake up seed of Ishmal you heritage has been hijacked by a false prophet. Instead of civilized talk all they come back with is hatred and death threats. Good start mr. wilder now others need to reach dwon and grab ahold and come out against this evil force of satan. In the name of the Lord I rebuke mohammed the false prophet. Come threaten me and I will send you to mohammed in his resting spot in hades.

This film is far from truth. Not even close one. In that film, it's just only sees another people doing terrible thing by name himself Islam. Wilder just don't know anything about what his doing. In Qur'an surat Al-Anfal (Hopefully correct) that he include, the meaning is far far from the real one. Moslem maybe have different ways. I approve that there is Moslem radical ways and moderate ways. But, I certainly sure that they will not doing horrible thing as that. And YOU Wilder! How evil are you to include our prophet Muhammad SAW in picture. Don't same our prophet with your prophet. Even we Moslem, still honor what you believe. but you ruin your believer and your political position. I hope your god can forgive your very heavy sin.

For all due respect to other people who read this comments, all this comments isn't intend to insulted other religion or it's believer. But i want to make it clearly for once, in that film not all Moslems do terrible things like that. And this film Fitna is clearly meant to Islam. We Moslems want to clear the people's view about Islam. Not all of us Moslems doing such a horrible things, and what they doing is not on the name of Islam. They doing merely for themselves, not Islam. So, don't hate Islam because of some Moslems (Maybe!) done such horrible thing. I want to represent all Moslems in the world, we never want to insult other religions. It's just we cannot except Wilder's Film Fitna!!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CLAIM THAT YOU AGREE WITH WILDER'S OPINION MEANS THAT YOU STATE YOURSELVES BEING SO FOOL............ READ THIS, IN EACH RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY HAS VARIOUS KINDS OF PEOPLE. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS TO EXPRESS THEIR BELIEF. SOMETIMES THEY HAVE DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS TO SHOW THEIR BELIEFS WE DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IS CORRECT. IT HAPPENS NOT BECAUSE OF THE BIBLE OR THE SOURCES THEY READ, BUT THE WAY OF THINKING.... THAT'S THE PROBLEM.I DO BELIEVE THAT THIS SITUATION ALSO HAPPENS IN EACH RELIGION. ONCE AGAIN IT'S NOT BECAUSE OF THE BIBLE. NOW I'D LIKE TO HAVE A QUESTION FOR U GUYS IN HOLLAND........... HOW GOOD YOUR RELIGION IS.......... BE OPEN MINDED DEAR....... NOTHING IS PERFECT IN THIS WORLD............N WILDER, BY SHOWING THIS FILM MEANS THAT YOU LET YOURSELF GET THE TICKET TO HELL.HOPEFULLY YOU CAN REACH MUCH MONEY FROM THIS FILM TO PAY YOUR EXPENSE OF YOUR OWN BURIAL CEREMONY . REST IN PEACE IN HELL WILDER

I am Professor Salman with an interest in the study of comparative religion.I feel this movie is based upon a very poor and superficial knowledge of religion and made just to hurt the feelings of the muslims.NO religion in the world recommends voilence in any form.The actions of a politically voilent group who happen to be muslims does not represent the teachings of Islam.Do the terrorist actions of IRA represent the teachings of Christ or Christianity at large?The Suras of Quran are quoted out of the historical context when muslims were compelled to defend themselves against the Pagans of that time.Why has the movie maker ignored the Quranic verse in Sura 1 which equates the followers of all faiths including christians,jews,muslims and followers of other faiths by saying that allah/god would determine the fate of every human on the basis of their good deeds irrespective of their particular adherence to a particular religion.The quran also says that if anyone kills just one human being it is just like killing all humankind; and if anyone saves one human life it is just like saving the whole humankind.I would request not to confuse political issues with the faith of islam which professes peace.The veils of women are not islamic but peculiar to specific cultures.Kindly educate yourself well before you spit out your biases in this form of movies based on ignorance.Those who use the name of Islam to further their political agenda are doing a great disservice to the faith.And those who are ignorant enough to take the minority of terrorists belonging to various religions to be repreentatives of those religions are doing a great injustice to the silent majority of peaceful humankind belonging to all faiths.It would have been pertinent if the similar statements in all holy books including the Quran had been made the subject of this movie to spread the message of peace for all humankind.This is why a little knowledge is so dangerous that it can mislead the whole globe and spread hatred rather than love and in that sense you are an accomplice of the terrorists who are bent upon using the name of god for their voilent acts with an underlying political agenda.
