Since YouTube allows videos extolling the virtues of Hezbollah, we can assume they have no problem with showing murderous Islamic thugs and terrorists, but one wonders what terms of service the film Fitna violated when it merely criticized Islam; read the details over at Just a Girl in short shorts talking about whatever.
There are two ways to incite Muslims to riot, pillage, attack Christians, burn churches, rape infidel women, brutally behead unbelievers, blow up embassies, savagely violate children, and in general to behave violently:
- Release a film critical of Islam and the Qur'an.
- Let them simply read the Qur'an.
If you haven't yet heard of Fitna, a film by Dutch politician Geert Wilders, you can get the details from Wiki.
Christians who live in countries with large Muslim populations will need to take cover.

Dutch Christians and Muslims join forces to limit Fitna's impact
The anger felt by some people in the Muslim world has already reached such a level that a delegation from the Dutch Protestant church, the Dutch Council of Churches, the Muslims and government contact organisation (CMO) and the Islamic contact group is to go to Egypt in a joint effort by these organisations to ward off possible disaster.
the members of the delegation hope to demonstrate clearly that the Netherlands is not an anti-Islamic nation.
Bas Plaisier says it's extremely important that the message gets across clearly in the Muslim world. He's been receiving disturbing reports from Dutch nationals all over the world, including ones about fear of repercussions among Christians in Sudan, the Middle East and Indonesia, with churches being the target. In the case of Indonesia, the wave of church burning which took place only a few years ago is still fresh in people's memories. Bas Plaisier was in Jakarta fairly recently and found that it was in fact moderate Muslims who would ask him: "What in heaven's name are you doing in the Netherlands, are you actually aware of what you are doing?"
Let me translate that last line for you: "Don't you know that we are going to riot and kill anyone who insults Islam?"
Youtube obviously knows the consequences and in fear of their miserable lives has already killed the account.
So this is how information will be distorted in the modern world: by appeasers to Islam like the New York Times (1) or by knee-shaking cowards like YouTube and Network Solutions who backed away from hosting the site.
Now if only that Dutch Christian group can convince the rest of the Muslim world that Holland is already filled with Dhimmis and is ripe for an Islamic takeover, perhaps they can be spared violence and destruction.
By the way, I do not agree with Wilders that we should ban the Qur'an. No books should be banned, none, no matter the content. We should, however, ban Muslims. The problem is not the book, but the people who faithfully follow its precepts.
The film, before anyone had even seen one clip, had already sparked violence by Muslims:

Dutch Raise Terror Threat Level After Film Stokes Muslim Hostility
The Dutch centrist coalition government has raised the terrorism alert level from "limited" to "substantial" because of "increased international threats," a justice ministry spokesman announced Thursday, March 6.
NATO, meanwhile, is believed to be concerned about the safety of its troops in Afghanistan after hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Mazar-i-Sharif earlier in the week in protest. The crowds set fire to Dutch flags and called for the immediate withdrawal of the Dutch army from Afghanistan.

"Fitna": The Left Paints Itself into a Corner
Yesterday, the IS (International Socialists) hosted a demonstration on the Dam in Amsterdam. Nederland bekend kleur (translated: "The Netherlands admits color"). This demo was supposed to show solidarity with ethnic minorities, but in actuality it was a "let's bash Wilders in public" demo.
It was a complete fizzle. At least 5,000 demonstrators were expected. Less than a thousand showed up. The national media weren't even present.
Aligned with those leftists, Al Qaeda offers its two cents:

Al Qaeda Fatwa against MP Wilders
The terrorist network Al-Qaeda has given orders for the assassination of MP Geert Wilders, newspaper De Telegraaf reports. The Party for Freedom (PVV) leader must be 'slaughtered', the orders say, because he has insulted Islam and the prophet Mohammed.
The newspaper based its report on a recent message on a protected web forum of internet site al-ekhlaas.net, which De Telegraaf claims is affiliated with Al-Qaeda. The internet threat, which was posted on 28 January, was intercepted by the American research institute SITE Intelligence Group, the newspaper reports.
"In the name of Allah, we ask you to bring us the neck of this unbeliever who insults Islam and the Muslims and ridicules the prophet Mohammed," the site says about Wilders, according to the newspaper.
The message honours Mohammed Bouyeri as a hero. This Amsterdam-born Moroccan Muslim cut Islam-critic Theo van Gogh's throat on 2 November 2004. The message also appeals for readers to "terrorise" the Netherlands to prevent Wilders' controversial film on the Koran from being broadcast.
Blogger Black Sheep has a suggestion:
Network Solutions: Bought by Terrorists
Network Solutions, a major Internet hosting service, has taken www.fitnathemovie.com offline in an unbelievable act of American censorship.
I don’t expect all you sheep to stop eating grass but it would be nice if you’d raise your heads from the meadow and grow some horns long enough to follow this advice from Kees: E-mail:Network Solutions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them toll free by phone: 1-800-333-7680 and 1-800-361-5712, outside the US: 1-570-708-8788, and give them your feelings on Internet censorship, especially censorship paid for by Islamists.
Here's a suggestion:
Infidel Bloggers Alliance,
Official IBA Policy: Regime Change At Network Solutions
The people who run Network Solutions must be removed from their positions of authority, and replaced with executives who have respect for the Constitutional system of the United States.
The business they are in is supported by a culture dedicated to Free Speech. Without such a culture, no one would be interested in the internet, thus their business would dry up.
They like the benefits of free speech, but are absolutely unwilling to support free speech themselves. This is not a simple issue of Free Enterprise. Trucking companies have to pay special taxes, because trucks do more damage to the roads than do ordinary automobiles. Network Solutions ought to be willing to support the system which allows them to thrive.

US ISP Caves In To Maddened Horde
This is what Political Correctness brings us to. Free Speech, Denied. It isn’t like comparing pisslam to Little Adolph’s Big Book of Hate is anything new; every year you read that Mein Kampf is on the best seller list all over the arab world. And since your average Achmed isn’t exactly a big reader, there has got to be a few similar themes that keep Herr Schicklegruber’s meistervork selling year after year. It can’t be just hating on the Jooooos. That’s everywhere over there.
Given the refusal by Network Solutions to host a film one has to wonder why it is that Network Solutions actually violates U.S. law and is hosting radical Islamic websites, some of which belong to (or are closely affiliated with) terrorist groups.
As Rick Moran writes at American Thinker and as we noted in our previous post, "Given the freedom radical Islamists enjoy to spout their hatred on the internet one wonders why Wilders unseen film should suffer from being banned arbitrarily."
How do we cut down on honor murders in the West? According to some people, you do whatever it takes to keep the girls from dishonoring their families so that their families do not have to honor-murder them.
According to the New York Times, "home schooling” the girls in America, re-creating a feudal, rural, parallel universe in California in which girls and women are kept hidden and apart, is the sensible, merciful alternative to honor murders in The New World.
At a time when Islamists are at full jihadic throttle, the New York Times features a mild and lovely—a truly non-judgmental article about the proliferation of home schooling among Muslim communities in America.
