FITNA Release Leads to Death Threats on LiveLeak Staff

The recent web release of the film FITNA by Dutch Politician Geert Wilders was hosted on British run website LiveLeak.com and has since been removed (although the link still works) due to death threats against its staff. This is the statement from LiveLeak’s website.

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, Liveleak.com 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 LiveLeak.com 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.

I have watched the 15 minute film and it is a compilation of verses out of the Quran calling for violence, footage from terrorist activities, and Muslim leaders preaching violence against Jews and Christians. Geert Wilders has already been targeted with assassination before, but is much more likely to face it after releasing this film. He also faces some copyright charges, but that’s irrelevant if he’s killed for this.

The film is very damning against radical Islam and seeks to have the Quran banned in Holland for the same reason that Mein Kamph was banned.  It’s isn’t very well made, but it is powerful.  Geert Wilders has a right to say what he thinks without being threatened with death.

The film was downloaded from LiveLeak.com and made it onto YouTube. If you want to watch the film, the two parts are below. It is about 15 minutes long total. I wouldn’t recommend watching it with kids.

  1. Death threats were used to successfully shut down Fitna on LiveLeak — confirming the very points made in the film. If that doesn’t make the point, what will? This is a great opportunity for the so-called “moderate” muslims to stand up with one voice and unequivocally denounce and condemn radical muslims. But surfing around on blogs about Fitna — all one sees from the apologists is lame excuses, justification, etc. Will muslims ever stand up and condemn these acts of murder and hate? Why is it so easy for them to riot over a cartoon bomb on mohammed’s head — but radical muslims sawing off a live human’s head is to be justified? I commend Mr. Wilders for taking a stand on the truth, not matter how hard the lying mass media tries to bury it.

  3. Thanks for posting these.

    I’d linked to the liveleak originally and was looking for alternate sources after that one disappeared.
