|This video contains grisly scenes and should not be watched in the presence of children.Israel Insider here posts “Fitna”, the controversial movie by Dutchman Geert Wilders that seeks to show how violent verses of the Koran and preaching of Islamic clerics are translated into global terror.The 15 minute movie starts with the bomb-headed Mohammed cartoon that previously triggered riots throughout the world, and then juxtaposes Koranic passages with grisly scenes of carnage carried out by Muslims in recent years and Moslem clerics calling for murder and violence towards all non-believers. In one case a frenzied imam pulls out a sword and acts out the beheadings he would like to carry out: “By Allah, we shall cut off the Jew’s head! Allah is great! Allah is great! Jihad for the sake of Allah!” The audience, similarly enthused, cheers him on.The film was banned first by internet registrar Network Solutions and then video site LiveLeak.YouTube has continued to allow the streaming of a Dutch version with passable English subtitles, which is embedded here.”http://www.youtube.com/v/bCrCsTMokTU&hl=en”The movie has drawn condemnation from Arab countries around the world, as well as from Australia, Holland, the European Union and the United Nations. Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith rejected the film’s premise of equating Islam with acts of terror and violence and said it was an attempt to incite racial hatred. The Netherlands’ Central Jewish Board called the film’s focus on anti-Jewish preaching by Muslims “counterproductive” and “generalizing.”One of the Koranic verses quoted in the movie reads, “Those who have disbelieved our signs, we shall roast them in fire. Whenever their skins are crispy like a turkey’s skin, we shall substitute new skins for them, that they may feel the punishment. Verily, Allah is sublime and wise.” This is followed by scenes of enemies of Islam being dragged through the streets, a bombed-out bus in London, an imam calling for death to all Jews, and signs at Moslem rallies reading, “Be prepared for the real Holocaust,” “God bless Hitler,” and “Islam will dominate the world.”
Another quoted verse: “Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks, and when ye have caused a bloodbath among them, bind a bond firmly on them.” Another Moslem preacher is then seen saying calmly, “Throats must be slit and skulls must be shattered – this is the path to victory.”
Imams and Moslem leaders are shown preaching, “Islam is a religion that wants to rule the world. It has done so before, and eventually will rule it again… By Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again! The day will come when we will rule America! The day will come when we will rule Britain! … You will take over the USA! You will defeat them all! You will get victory!”
The Washington Post has an Associated Press story concentrating on the reactions to the movie, with nothing about its content; the report relates to the film as an “insult” to Islam, with quotes by many Islamic political leaders to this effect and comparing it to the Danish cartoons about Muhammed. An earlier Reuters story in the Washington Post followed the same line, though it included one and a half sentences describing the film’s actual content.
At the end of the film, the seconds tick down and end with an explosion.
Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende said in a statement that “the vast majority of Muslims reject extremism and violence.”
“In fact, the victims are often also Muslims. We therefore regret that Mr. Wilders has released this film. We believe it serves no purpose other than to cause offense.”
