"Fitna" & Islam Again

LiveLeak succumbed to pressure and threats about its posting of Dutch MP Geert Wilders' film "Fitna". You can see their official statement in my post below when you try to play the film. I have posted it again in a different format courtesy of The Jawa Report.

Why do radical Muslims seethe and breathe threats when anyone criticizes the actions of Islam? They are blind to the fact that their own words and actions convict them. Geert Wilders has simply put together images and film clips from Muslims' own mouths.

Here is what LiveLeak says about their dilemma.
"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 don't blame LiveLeak at all. But its a shame liberals and our own dinosaur media have not cried out with indignation at the intimidation and threats toward the bedrock of our liberties: The freedom to speak.

WARNING! There is some graphic detail but it could have been a whole lot worse.

Religion of peace indeed...
