Truth Hurts

Muslims around the world are imploring the Dutch government not to release the Geert Wilder video "Fitna". They are using the threat of violence and intimidation as an excuse to censor the short film.

But why are Muslims so afraid of "Fitna"? Are they concerned millions of Muslims may view it and leave Islam? Is their faith that frail? Or maybe they're worried the movie might portray Islam in a bad light. Like Islamic terrorists don't do that already. But they are Muslims, and Muslim terrorists receive more support from other Muslims than the 'Kuffar.' Or maybe they just don't want a widely publicized anti-Islamic video? Do they realize their protests have brought more publicity than even the most effective PR firms could have managed?

The Council of Churches in Indonesia has joined a growing chorus of calls for a controversial Dutch film about Islam not to be shown.

The film, made by far-right politician Geert Wilders, is entitled "Fitna", an Arabic word used to describe strife or discord, usually religious. Wilders has said the 15-minute film, expected to be released later in March, will show how the Quran is "an inspiration for intolerance, murder and terror". - Indonesian church council urges Dutch Islam film not to be shown

Do not be intimidated by Muslim threats of violence. When the video is released, download it and share it.

Truth cannot be subdued.
