Geert has finally released his video "Fitna." It is fifteen minutes long. Probably fourteen minutes longer, for non-tolerant groups, that is required for excreta to hit a rotary air circulating device and become airborne. An English version, as well as the original, is available at Live Leak. Jihad Watch will have the video after other sites get bombed! Wilders presents nothing more than truths that have been realized in modern times and how the events are correlated to verses in Islamic teachings. Actually, the most dramatic, IMHO, is the pronouncements by imams of their strict interpretations, pronouncement of death, hatred of the Jews, and the demand for the followers to achieve world domination. I am sure that the religion of peace and tolerance will go totally ballistic on this. Their jihad reaction to the Muhammad cartoons two years ago may well serve as a base for an expectation of violence in the Muslim world. Faith Freedom also has a link from their gallery that has an interesting song to explain their view of Islam.
How would Christians react to a such video against Christianity? Actually, such a video would be hard to be honestly created. True, the Old Testament had some really hellacious events. The difference is that the events are not continued today, nor are they promoted by priests or pastors of any mainstream Christian faith tradition. For Christians, the New Testament is of redemption through Christ. A Savior of love, compassion, and forgiveness. The message is to spread the Word throughout the world, but not to dominate. The Catholic Church has even gone so far as to state in the Second Vatican Council, Nostra Aetate (3), "The Church has also a high regard for the Muslims." If such a video could, hypothetically, be made, the reaction would not result in riots, beheadings, civic violence, mass murders, or burning of mosques. Let's see if the religion of peace and tolerance proves Wilders correct.
Addendum: Radio Netherlands reports "2 million page views within three hours after its release." Pages and websites are being taken down almost as fast as posts are made. Must have aggrevated someone in the religion of tolerance. Live Link has lost the video as of 7:35 CST.
