"Fitna" & Islam Part 3

Robert Spencer has a great post on Pajamas Media about the fitna caused by Dutch MP GeertWilders' film "Fitna". Robert breaks down the passages of the Qur’an and corresponding words and actions of MUSLIMS depicted in "Fitna". He correctly points out that with a few edits "Fitna" could be a film by the Mujahideen. Yet the liberal politically correct West continues to cave in to Islam's demands in the name of tolerance and dialog.
And that points up the odd myopia of virtually all of the objections to Fitna. It was not Geert Wilders, but the many Muslims he shows in his film, who link Islam with violence. And that link has already been made innumerable times around the world - by Islamic jihad warriors, not by non-Muslim “Islamophobes.” Omar Bakri, once the leading jihadist in Britain but now in exile from the Sceptered Isle, even went so far as to say that with a few small edits, Fitna “could be a film by the Mujahideen.” And that’s precisely the problem: while a growing chorus of Muslim and non-Muslim voices denounces Fitna, what are they doing to limit the activities of the jihadists the film portrays? (emphasis mine)
Robert also touches on LiveLeaks fear and reaction to backlash in their decision to pull "Fitna" from their servers. He agrees with me that LiveLeak's concern for their staff is real. Despite Islam's reaction about Dutch MP Geert Wilders' film, Geert is absolutely correct in showing the connection of violence and Islam. It is NOT a religion of peace and tolerance. Will the West ever stand up for liberty? Or is it doomed to be conquered by a fascist religion that talks peace only when it wants a hudna or when all other religions and states have been subjugated under Islam. All else would be destroyed or put under jizya, the subjugation tax imposed on Christians and Jews and Islam's idea of tolerance. The problem is, the tolerance and so-called peaceful co-existence espoused by Islam forbids the open practice of a person's faith if it is not Islam.
LiveLeak’s concern for its employees is legitimate. The employees didn’t sign up for this. But beyond LiveLeak, if Americans and Westerners and all people who are threatened by the global jihad and Islamic supremacism aren’t willing to give their lives for this cause, then all is lost. Because the jihadists certainly are willing to give their lives for their cause. For them, no price is too high. And if any price is too high for us, then ultimately all we will have to pay is jizya - the tax specified by Qur’an 9:29 for certain non-Muslims (particularly Jews and Christians) subjugated as inferiors under the rule of Islamic Sharia law.

What ever happened to “Give me liberty, or give me death?”


UPDATE 3/31/08 02:36 PM: LiveLeak has reinstated "Fitna"! Good for them. At least someone is willing to stand up the so-called religion of peace.
