It's Out: 'Fitna' The Movie
Fitna, "the Movie" - by Dutch MP Geert Wilders, sparked controversy long before its release, and has had the world asking questions about Wilders' intentions, the Netherlands and its government, and about the position of Muslims in the Netherlands. The central character in this film is also struggling with these questions, and decides to travel to The Netherlands in search of answers."
... The movie offers (his (Wilders') view on Islam and the Qur'an. The film's title comes from the Arabic word fitna which is used to describe "disagreement and division among people", or a "test of faith in times of trial".Unquestionably, this film needs to be seen by everyone.
... The sixteen minute movie shows a selection of Suras from the Qur'an, interspersed with partial newspaper clippings and media clips. The movie is accompanied by music from the Peer Gynt suite by Edvard Grieg, specifically Aase's Death (Aase is the mother of Per in the play written by Henrik Ibsen).
... The movie starts with a warning, stating that the movie contains "very shocking images". During the title screen, a book is subsequently opened that resembles the Qur'an. A page in the book contains a cartoon from the Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, showing the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb on his head. Next to the cartoon, a timer starts counting down from 15 minutes.
The take home message from the film: Stop Islamization, or die - as does Western civilization.
Here, Geert Wilder's gives a 7 1/2 minute interview on Danish TV (in English) at Europe, the Dutch, Islam, and more, and he pulls no punches.
