March 31, 2008: In late 2007, Geert Wilders, a member of Tweede Kamer (House of Representatives of the Dutch Parliament) for the Party for Freedom, announced that he would make a 15 minute movie about Islam. The movie intends to expose the Koran's violent and intolerant teachings. It is also "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization", according to Geert Wilders. Released on March 27, 2008, "Fitna", which is Arabic for "disagreement and division among people" or a "test of faith in times of trial".
The movie was first mentioned by the Dutch media on November 27, 2007. Immediately, this sparked massive Muslim and leftist outrage. Wilders was branded as a "racist" and a "bigot" although he has never made any racist statements (Islam is a religion, not a race) or any statements about Islam without using the Koran's own violent teachings, which commands Muslims to kill Non-Muslims and conquer their lands. It should also be noted that other major religions, such as Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism, don't teach or encourage violence. Still, major protests and countless threats began coming in from ordinary Muslims, Islamic terrorist organizations and even Islamic governments! Iran is even threatening to boycott the Netherlands! Al-Qaeda and several other terrorist groups issued a Fatwa (an Islamic edict for assassination) against Geert Wilders!
Many Western European nations were also outraged, greatly concerned for their security, and fearful of the repeat of the Muslim response to the Mohammad Cartoons "Controversy". In an episode almost identical to the American comical cartoon series South Park's "Cartoon Wars", "the Dutch government has expressed great concern about the upcoming film release and has made emergency evacuation plans available to all its consulates and embassies worldwide. It is also hardening security measurements around military installations abroad." Other Western European governments have done so too.
If all of this wasn't going far enough, Dutch citizens soon began a "Sorry for Fitna Campaign". They literally apologized for the movie and, in some cases, even for Geert Wilders and even his existence! What makes all of this even more absurd and insane is the fact that a fictional comical cartoon show, South Park, which meant to exaggerate the Mohammad Cartoons "Controversy" in a parody, turned out to be only a preview of the actual reality. It has shown exactly how the West responds to crises, where their freedoms and survival are at stake. In the South Park episode of "Cartoon Wars", the majority of South Park tried to figure out how to best "apologize" to Islamic terrorists and differentiate themselves from a show that would visually depict Mohammad and ended up deciding to literally bury their heads in the sand, which, they then actually did.
It's amazing for anyone to write an article defending free speech and use a comical cartoon as one of their best examples but this is where the world, especially the West, has come to and Geert Wilders has already succeeded in exposing the West to itself. The West has buried its heads in the sand too. Instead of supporting the release of Fitna, regardless of whether they agree with its content or its message, many Westerners have yielded to Islamic terrorist threats and have even sided with the terrorists themselves, by apologizing to them for being associated with "offensive", "hateful", "bigoted" and "racist" individuals.
Ironically, it was not the Muslims who caused widespread panic in the Netherlands, but leftists and the administration of prime-minister Jan Peter Balkenende. While Wilders wanted to expose Islamic terrorism, Balkenede's fearful actions achieved the opposite and totally overshadowed the purpose of the movie, creating a crisis in the Netherlands far before the release of the movie. To prevent the movie from being released, Balkenende and his party, the CDA, examined the possibility to sue Wilders but as Wilders made clear, he stuck to the law. Balkenende almost called for a state of emergency, warning not only the Netherlands but the European Union as well to "stay" calm as he seeked assistance from the EU in case of a "crisis", failing to understand that the EU is not meant for national issues. Balkenede repeatedly reminded the Netherlands that Wilders' alleged views on Islam are not shared by his administration.
What many Westerners have done is side with the enemy. Imagine if Hitler would've threatened to invade a European country, unless it didn't quell anti-Hitler and anti-Nazi sentiment in Public and that country would've actually capitulated to his demands – in fact, that did happen! Poland literally silenced those who opposed Nazi Germany, because they feared being invaded. That method worked in making Poland even weaker, and thus, easier for Nazi Germany to occupy. Today, the entire West is silencing anyone who dares to criticize Islamic terrorists in any way, due to fears of violence and terrorism along with Economic warfare from the Islamic world!
Today, we are in the same situation as we were in the 1930s – the ATC personally sees 2008 as a new 1938. Back then, few people realized the Nazi threat. Today, even fewer people realize the theocratic fascist threat by Islam! Unfortunately it apparently takes a country to be nearly completely Islamized, as the Netherlands, for a modern Winston Churchill to show up. In case of the Netherlands, Pim Fortuyn stood up, created a party, and decided to eliminate the Islamic terrorist threat. He was killed, allegedly by leftist. Hirsi Ali followed, created a movie, "Submission", to expose the Islamic treatment of women. Ali got expelled from the Netherlands, the director of the movie, Theo van Gogh, got murdered by a Muslim who got "offended" by the movie.
Now Geert Wilders is continuing the battle in the Netherlands for freedom and justice. His goal is to ensure that every single man, woman and child understand exactly what is going on just as well as he does. Most importantly, Geert Wilders wants to prevent another WWII. He wants us to wake up before it's too late and to prevent any more genocides from happening, as well as put an end to the ones that are currently in progress. Already, theocratic fascists have killed more than 100 million Hindus, 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 to 1923 alone, more than 100,000 Serbs, more than 100,000 Jews, 10,000+ Americans, Dutch, French, Danish, Italians, British, Spaniards, Thais, 100,000s of Sudanese, Australians, Russians and many others. It is these same theocratic fascists that are threatening us with violence and terrorism. Thus, in fact, the theocratic fascist threat should be more obvious and clear than the Nazi threat of the 1920s and 1930s ever was to us.
Nevertheless, the release of Fitna was not only being fought from within the Netherlands, but also outside, in particular the USA. Network Solutions, the domain and hosting company that hosts the official website of Lebanese theocratic fascist and terrorist organization Hezbollah, provides the domain for the official Ku Klux Klan (KKK) website, to mention a few, banned Wilders' Fitna website. Network Solutions is the biggest domain name registrar in the USA.
Liveleak.com, where Wilders turned to release his movie instead, banned, against their will, Fitna from their website after death threats by theocratic fascists of Islam. Saying that safety comes first, Liveleak.com has expressed their disappointment and said it was a sad day for freedom of speech.
Interestingly, Fitna turned out to show only images we know from the media, ranging form the 9-11 terrorist attacks on the USA to the Islamic murder of Dutch Islam critic Theo van Gogh, alongside verses from the Koran that call for such actions. At the end, the viewer is reminded that in 1945, Nazism was defeated in Europe; in 1989, communism was defeated in Europe and now, the Islamic ideology hast o be defeated.
Balkenede, in reaction to the movie, called the movie offensive for Muslims(!). UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, from South Korea, called the movie "offensively anti-Islamic". It should also noted that on the same day, South Korea recognized the existence of Kosovo as an independent state, despite it being illegal under international laws and despite that the Western World, led by the USA, illegally attacked Yugoslavia in 1999, together with Al-Qaeda, to advance the goals of Albanian Islamic theocratic fascists to establish a state in Serbia which was planned by Mussolini and Hitler during World War 2 to gain support from Albanian Islamic theocratic fascists.
It is imperative that this movie be released, for at stake is the preservation of freedom of speech - our human right; the survival of freedom, itself; the survival of Western and all other civilization; and above all, our own survival!
Thus, the ATC announces its intentions to host Fitna. Furthermore, the ATC would be honored to do so.
Update - April 5, 2008: The ATC has obtained a copy of Fitna and it is now online.
