Dutch Lawmaker to Edit Anti-Quran Film

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) – A Dutch lawmaker whose anti-Quran film drew worldwide condemnations will edit out a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad after complaints of copyright infringement, his office said Monday.
mo-turban-bomb.jpg Geert Wilders used the cartoon by Danish artist Kurt Westergaard twice in the film “Fitna.” The drawing, which depicts Islam’s prophet wearing a bomb-shaped turban with a lit fuse, provoked violent protests in Muslim countries when it was published by European newspapers two years ago.

The Danish Union of Journalists has said it would sue Wilders for copyright infringement.

Wilders’ spokeswoman Daphne Rozenboom said in an e-mail that Wilders would replace the cartoon and make other minor edits. She could not give details on how Wilders would change a film that has been dispersed widely over the Internet and downloaded millions of times since its release late Thursday.

In Denmark, Westergaard said he was happy with Wilders’ decision and believed the lawsuit would be dropped.

He added that Wilders might have won his permission to use the cartoon if he had asked.

“I don’t want my drawing to be used in something that I don’t know anything about. Had Mr. Wilders contacted me, we could have talked together and I could have found out what he wanted with the drawing,” he said.

The 15-minute film showed verses from the Quran juxtaposed with scenes of violence and terrorist attacks by Muslim extremists.

It led to protests in Pakistan and drew condemnations from Muslim countries and politicians around the world. The Dutch government also denounced the film, and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called it “offensively anti-Islamic.” = TRUTH

About 40 hard-line Muslims demonstrated outside the Dutch Embassy in Indonesia in a protest that began Monday and continued Tuesday, calling for Wilders’ death. The protesters from Islamic Defenders Front – a small group that has occasionally staged violent protests against Western targets – threw plastic bottles and eggs at the compound before dispersing.

Malaysia’s Islamic opposition party delivered a protest note to the Dutch Embassy and urged Muslims worldwide to boycott Dutch products.

In Kuala Lumpur, a supermarket chain marked Dutch products with red labels, giving customers the option of boycotting them.

Ameer Ali Mydin, managing director of Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd., told The Associated Press on Tuesday that 40 of his stores would take part in the nationwide campaign.

“I think as a Muslim, we have to take a stand,” he said.

Mydin buys $18.8 million worth of Dutch goods a year, from dairy and cosmetics to electronics.

Wilders, whose party holds nine seats in the 150-member Dutch parliament, said the film was intended to warn the West of the dangers posed by Islam.

On Monday, Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen met with ambassadors of countries belonging to the Organization of the Islamic Conference to assure them the film “in no way reflects the opinion of the Dutch government,” spokesman Rob Dekker said.

He said the diplomats inquired whether Wilders would be prosecuted for violating hate speech laws. Prosecutors have said they have not yet decided whether to take action.

Free speech is a fine concept as long as you do not speak out against Islam. So feel free to say as you please but be good little dhimmis and do not tell the truth about Islam.

Complaint lodged against Wilders’ film

Thursday 27 March 2008

A lawyer from Lelystad has lodged a police complaint against Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam film which was released on the internet on Thursday evening, reports ANP news service.

Els Lucas made the complaint on Thursday evening, claiming the leader of the anti-immigration PVV party breaks the law by creating a link between the number of Muslims and the increase in violence in society. That is the point twit!

She believes the film Fitna incites discrimination and violence (from arrogant barbarians), reports ANP. ‘I have lodged a complaint because I do not believe this contributes to a peaceful society,’ she told ANP.

Dutch Gov’t Repudiates Koran Film

(CNSNews.com) – Bracing for reaction, the Dutch government late Thursday distanced itself from a lawmaker’s newly released film linking the Koran to violence and terrorism, saying the problem was “not religion, but the misuse of religion to sow hatred and intolerance.”

Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, whose government earlier urged Geert Wilders not to release the provocative film, said he rejected its equation of Islam with violence. [eye roll] The film was posted on the Internet on Thursday (see related story).

“The vast majority of Muslims reject extremism and violence,” Balkenende said in a statement read during a press conference. “In fact, the victims are often also Muslims.

“We therefore regret that Mr. Wilders has released this film. We believe it serves no purpose other than to cause offence. But feeling offended must never be used as an excuse for aggression and threats.”

Wilders late last month accused the prime minister of cowardice, saying he appeared to be so fearful of the consequences of the film that was willing to capitulate, rather than defend democratic freedoms.

On Thursday, he conceded that Muslims may be unhappy with his film, and said he hoped it would not spark disturbances.

Radio Netherlands quoted him as saying the film was not intended to provoke disruption, but to make clear the dangers, and he hoped it would lead to debate in the Netherlands and elsewhere.

Wilders is the leader of the Freedom Party, a small right-wing party he formed in 2004 under the slogan “Stop the Islamization of the Netherlands.” It holds nine seats in the 150-member Dutch parliament, the Tweede Kamer.

Wilders has lived with security protection since the 2004 murder of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, who was targeted for making a documentary about the treatment of women under Islam.

Dutch security officials this month raised the national risk level to “substantial” and Dutch embassies have been circulating statements on the government’s view of the film, amid concerns about a possible backlash against Dutch nationals and business interests. Place the blame where it belongs!

The Dutch Council of Churches Thursday called the film a “caricature” of Islam, and a Dutch lawyer, Els Lucas, lodged a legal complaint against Wilders, accusing him of inciting violence and discrimination. Lucas has in the past filed complaints against Wilders, charging that his stance on Islam violates Dutch law.

In a separate legal challenge, a Dutch court Friday is due to consider a petition, brought by the country’s Islamic Federation before the film’s release, asking whether the material breaches hate-speech laws. Hate speech (sharia law) laws put in place for Muslims

Early reactions among Dutch Muslims to the film’s release reportedly were muted.

When the film went online, it was late at night or early Friday morning in large parts of the Islamic world — including Pakistan and Indonesia, where protests against the film took place earlier.

The Web sites of many major newspapers in the Middle East and South Asia were slow to pick up the story, although leading Arabic television networks al-Jazeera and al-Arabiya on their English-language sites carried wire service reports on the release of the film.

There was no immediate reaction from key Islamic bodies such as the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which has been leading a drive to have the “defamation” of Islam outlawed.

(Hours before the film was released, the U.N. Human Rights Council Click link to read statement of dhimmi cow ‘UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour < – Example of her dhimmified hypocrisy here. in Geneva passed a resolution, proposed by Islamic states, urging governments to prohibit the defamation of religions, and expressing “deep concern at attempts to identify Islam with terrorism, violence and human rights violations.” For God’s sake! Islam is terrorism, violence and riddled with human rights violations. Under islamic (sharia) law! The vote was 21-10, with European countries and Canada leading the opposition.) Note free societies opposed this attempt to enforce sharia law across the globe.

Reaction may be forthcoming this weekend from the Arab League, which begins a summit in Damascus. Some key leaders are staying away because of Lebanon’s drawn-out political crisis, but the Koran film’s release could provide the participants with an issue to rally round.

The Arab European League (AEL), a Belgium-based party, accused Wilders of collaborating with “Zionists” to make the movie.

“His political agenda and his attacks against Islam and Muslims co[m]bined with his unconditional support to the Zionist project in occupied Palestine is welcomed and supported by the majority in the Zionist camp.”

The AEL was founded in 2000 by a Lebanese-born political activist. Recent postings on its Web site praise the assassinated Hizballah terror chief Imad Mughniyah, and call last month’s murder of eight Israeli religious students “a heroic attack,” congratulating the “resistance martyrs” responsible. Oh but that is ok?! Maggot!

‘Unfair translation’

Comments by Muslims carried on the Islam Online Web site reacting to the film’s release included accusations of Islamophobia, warnings of the fate awaiting “infidels,” and allegations about “unfair” translations of the Koran used in the film.

The film does not indicate what translation Wilders used.

Some Islamic scholars say that any translation of the Koran from the original Arabic is no longer the literal word of Allah. That is how they trick Non-muslims not fluent in Arabic.

A short film speaking the truth about Islam is offensive?
I’ll give them OFFENSIVE!

This is the first I had heard of the impending sale of Westergaard’s original (Muhammad turban bomb.) drawing. I would love to have that for myself! Oh yeah! Anyone want to buy it for me, my BD is in June. lol Just playin’.

Muhammad ‘bomb’ cartoon for sale

A DANISH cartoonist whose drawing of the Prophet Muhammad sparked riots across the Muslim world wants to sell the original drawing “to make something out of a difficult situation”.

The small, ink cartoon is locked in a bank vault as Kurt Westergaard, 72, hides from Islamic militants who have vowed to kill him.

His drawing, featuring a bomb in the prophet’s turban, is by far the most famous of a dozen “Muhammad cartoons” published three years ago by Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper for which Westergaard works.

It could command great interest at auction. But auction houses were voicing doubts about the wisdom of putting such a controversial item on sale.

“It’s too hot to handle,” said Franck Lombrail, an auctioneer in Paris. “It would represent a risk for the public at the sale.”

Flemming Rose, cultural editor of the Jyllands-Posten, called the cartoon “a great cultural icon of the 21st century” and thought it was only fair for Westergaard to make money out of it.

Rose said that on a visit to the US last year, he had autographed posters of the cartoon collection, which had sold for £500 ($1079) each.

One option might be to put the cartoon up for sale on the internet.

Islam is such a lovely way of life. Freedom is the cornerstone. No thought police. No facisim. Everyone should give slavery under Islam a whirl. You will no longer have to think for yourselves. Sharia will do it for you. How freeing is that! Whoopie! /sarc

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
