Painful Truth: ''Islamic Countries Want Dutch To Ban Wilders' Movie Fitna''Topics: Understanding Islam
The ambassadors of 26 Islamic countries want the Netherlands to investigate whether the film Fitna made by Dutch right-wing populist MP Geert Wilders can be banned, and have asked Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen whether it is possible to start legal proceedings against what they are calling an anti-Islam film. It seems that Muslims believe that the film insults "their" Prophet Muhammad and hurts the feelings of all Muslims.
However, what I find perplexing is how Muslims can possibly find Fitna anymore insulting to "their" Prophet and any more hurtful to their feelings than the "real" acts of terrorism shown in the film and those committed all around the world on a daily basis - ALL by Muslims - and overwhelmingly against their fellow Muslims. The film utilizes real images from real events in calling for Islam to reform itself, nothing is "made up."
How is it that Muslims themselves aren't condemning their fellow Muslims that consistently commit these acts of terrorism, hate, and intolerance, and instead focus all of their anger at a film about Islam that focuses on the very real need for Islam to be reformed and "rip out" those passages in the Quran that call for hatred, violence, and terror against unbelievers?
Meanwhile, in what demonstrably proves Geert Wilders points in making the film, Muslims were calling for Wilders' death long before the film was released, and such threats continue. The Internet host, LiveLeak, that first hosted the film initially caved-in to death threats to its staff, and has only today agreed to re-host the film.
One has to ask himself how is it so many non-Muslims fail to realize the true objective of the Islamists has nothing to do with interfaith dialog. It has only to do with "Interfaith = 1 Faith = Islam." The images we see in Wilders' film are not concocted, they are the actual images of Islamic terrorism, as are the images and reports that we see on our television screens and read about every single day.
See the movie, and see for yourself; the threat and horror of Muslim extremism is very real and growing, and the doomsday clock on the survival of Western civilization, and with it free speech and democracy, is ticking down - ever so quickly.
"... Nothing makes people want to see something more than banning it, or even better yet, telling them they may not be able to handle it ... . On that basis, the new film Fitna, must be pulling in internet viewers by the tens of millions."

Comments on "Dutch movie FITNA" released by a Dutch MP.
* If you see the movie FITNA by an open mind/eyes, you clearly see, the mind/thinking working behind this is only hate of an individual against Islam.
* The film maker picked the verses of Quran out of context and tried to develop hate to Islam among innocent people of other faiths by joining the video effects/clips.
Producer tried to play with innocent hearts by joining video clips like, Twin Tower attack clips, with verses.
I AM ASKING YOU PEOPLE, SHOULD ANY MUSLIM MAKE A MOVIE LIKE THIS "FITNA" AND JOINS THE TEACHING OF "BIBLE" WITH THE PICTURES/VIDEOS OF US ATTACK ON IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN......AND TRY TO PROVE THE SAME AS IN "FITNA"? SURE.....NO. THERE IS NO ANY MUSLIM IN THIS WORLD WHO CAN THINK TO COMMENT THE PROPHET JESUS AND HIS TEACHINGS. IF ANY DOES THIS, HE IS NOT A MUSLIM AT ALL, MAY BE HIS NAME IS LIKE OF MUSLIMS.
* In this movie, speeches of Politician doesn't mean that it is the sayings of Islam. and individuals' act don't mean the sayings of Islam.
Quran Says: "ONE WHO SAVES THE LIVE OF ANY INNOCENT HUMAN IS AS HE SAVES THE WHOLE HUMANITY"
We believe in "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" but with responsibility. By this kind of so called FREEDOM, actually you are hearting the millions of people. In humanity, freedom should be constructive, not for promote the hate in society/world.
More Important: MUSLIMS ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO THE HOLY QURAN and ALL PROPHETS INCLUDING MUHAMMAD, JESUS, DAVID, MOSIS and all others.
I personally feel, the act of Dutch MP is based on hate to Muslims. Not only for Muslims but he is also against his society and country. His Movie will work as a fire in the society of Netherlands as well as in between thousands of Muslims and Christians in the world.
May God/Allah help us to live with peace.
