That anti-Islam film getting all the attention
Geert Wilders’ new film, “Fitna,” has been getting a lot of attention. A former Malaysian diplomat said the film, which is highly critical of Islam, would make the rioting and violence sparked by the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad look like a “picnic.”
The film was originally posted at LiveLeak today but was taken down after 3 million views and a lot of threats.
GoogleVideo still has a 17-minute clip from “Fitna.” Many images are very, very disturbing—from the physical brutality of a beheading to the rhetorical venom of a 3-year-old girl who says Allah told her Jews are pigs and apes—and some resemble segments of “The Path to the Final Solution.” Fortunately, most Muslim Americans shy away from such extremist attitudes. Most.
