Dutch Film to Highlight Violence of Koran
Posted by Joshua Price on February 29, 2008
From today’s Washington Times:
Europe’s uneasy relationship with its Muslim minority faces another blow next month, when Dutch politician Geert Wilders releases a 15-minute film that compares Islam to Nazism and communism.
The film is called “Fitna,” an Arabic term for “discord.” It intersperses verses of the Koran with footage of terrorist attacks and other Islamist-inspired violence.
“The film will show that the Koran isn’t a dead work, but the face of Islam — a tremendous hazard,” Mr. Wilders told the daily newspaper NRC Handelsblad.
He said the film calls the Koran “the latest test to Western democracies since Nazism and communism.”
Here’s another interesting part of the story:
Dutch authorities fear that Mr. Wilders, already the recipient of numerous death threats, faces similar dangers to the assassinated Mr. van Gogh.
Now if Islam is truly a “religion of peace,” why would Mr. Wilders’ life be in danger? I’ll let you forget that one out.
And please do not come with the Timothy McVeigh argument. McVeigh was an athiest; he did not blow up the federal building in Oklahoma in the name of Christianity like the appeasers of Islamofascism would have you believe.
