Finally - Fitna the Movie released In English

The Original link to Live Leak has been removed because according to them:

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.

Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.

We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.

Hot Air has links to the video as well.

Muslims have called this film anti-Islamic. Except for the last 60 seconds where we are entreated to stop Islamization, not one word in this documentary came from non-Muslims. Everything that was uttered, everything that was said, everything that was written or displayed were the words of Muslim leaders or everyday Muslims or text directly from the Qur'an.

Imagine a documentary on America where except for the last 60 seconds when the audience is admonished to stop the spread of Democracy throughout the world but everything else came from Americans, where everything that was uttered, everything that was said, everything that was written or displayed were the words of American leaders or everyday Americans or text directly from our Declaration of Independence or our Constitution, would Americans rise up and denounce the film as anti-American? Obviously not. We would disagree with the sentiments expressed at the end but certainly the bulk of the documentary would be very complimentary to America.

So I wonder, what is it that Muslims find disagreeable about the film? Their own words from the Qur'an? From their Sermons? From the pronouncements of their Imams? From their actions on the world stage? That we say, as infidels, we do not wish to be subjugated? Is that what offends them if not their own words? That we wish to live as free men, to choose our own religion or not?

There is a bit of irony, the cartoonist who drew the bomb-turban Mohammed is upset:

BBC News,
Cartoonist to sue over Islam film

Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who depicted the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban, says he will sue the maker of an anti-Islam film.

Mr Westergaard says his cartoon, which sparked riots two years ago, was used in the film by Dutch politician Geert Wilders without permission.

Mr Westergaard told Danish TV that his cartoon was a protest against terrorism, not Islam as a whole.

Mr Westergaard has lived in hiding in Denmark since his cartoon led to unrest in Muslim lands in 2005. But I wonder if he's really worried about Osama Bin Laden types or the average Muslim in Denmark? Who is more likely to attack him? Whether he likes it or not, his real worry is from Islam as a whole, not terrorists.

Muslim nations condemn Dutch Koran film

AMSTERDAM, March 28 (Reuters) - Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia on Friday condemned a film by a Dutch lawmaker that accuses the Koran of inciting violence, as Dutch Muslim leaders urged restraint.

Islam critic Geert Wilders launched his short video on the Internet on Thursday evening. Titled "Fitna", an Arabic term sometimes translated as "strife", it intersperses images of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States and Islamist bombings with quotations from the Koran, Islam's holy book.

The film urges Muslims to tear out "hate-filled" verses from the Koran and starts and finishes with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad with a bomb under his turban, accompanied by the sound of ticking.

Idiot Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, a non-Muslim, puts his two cents in:

Muslims demand ban on anti-Koran film

Islamic leaders in the Netherlands will ask a court later today to ban a film which accuses the Koran of inciting violence. Dutch MP Geert Wilders launched his film on the internet after local distributors refused to release it. Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende added his criticism of the film, saying it was offensive to Muslims.

Or are we all racists and bigots for pointing out the obvious about the Qur'an?

Jihad Watch,
Armchair Critic: Blogger who posted "The List of Things That Offend Muslims" deserves to be shot

The growing Muslim indignation over Geert Wilders's movie Fitna manifests anew a phenomenon we have noted here many, many times: when non-Muslims point out that Islamic jihadists commit acts of violence and justify them by reference to the Qur'an, many non-Muslim and Muslim apologists for jihad, include many who are widely known as "moderates" respond by claiming that the one who is pointing out all this is committing an act of "hatred," "bigotry," "Islamophobia," and the like. They don't have a word to say about the actual acts of violence, hatred and supremacism committed by the jihadists -- no, the real villain is the one who reports on these actions.
