Fitna to be tied- The Muslims win (yet again)

Just as I had predicted previously, as of today LiveLeak has pulled 'Fitna' from its servers.

Here is how Mark Steyn covers this sad occasion:

Geert Wilders' film is a hit - over 1.5 million views in English, over 2.5 million in Dutch last time I checked - but it's nevertheless been yanked by LiveLeak, with the following statement:

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers. This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else.

Indeed. The Internet will keep Fitna alive in odd corners hither and yon, but only to those who actively seek it out. In the wider world, it goes without saying that such a film is unacceptable, and that this time round the pre-emptive rage (as Diana West calls it) was so successful the next Fitna will have an even harder time: no movie theaters or broadcast networks or obscure cable channels would even consider showing it, and Google and YouTube and the other Internet biggies have grown increasingly comfortable with political speech-policing, and now one more small net operation has learned that, unless you want to be a 24/7 crusader on this issue, it's not a business worth being in. In effect, the Islamobullies have been rewarded yet again for threatening physical violence. The best way to end the debate is not to make the price of having one too high.

To reprise Douglas Murray's point below, a film such as Fitna might not even be necessary were the western news organizations not so absurdly deferential toward Muslim sensibilities that they go out of their way to avoid showing us anything that might cause us to link violence with Islam. Even that footage of those depraved West Bankers jumping up and down in the street and passing out candy to celebrate 9/11 appears to have been walled up in the most impenetrable vault of the archives these last six years. Both CNN and the BBC could only bring themselves to show the Danish cartoons by pixelating Mohammed's face - the first time this technique has ever been applied to a drawing, as if the Prophet had entered the witness protection program. At one level, they make Wilders' point for him, but, at another, they make it less likely anyone else will step forward to try to make the point next time.

In reality, it's the small band of people trying to resist the de facto universalization of Islamic prohibitions that have to enter the witness protection program. Wish Mr Wilders good luck. Neither his own government nor the feeble equivalence peddler who serves as US ambassador to the Organization of the Islamic Conference are much help to him.

These are the men with balls in the west of weeny pussies. The Pope, Allam, and Geert Wilders. Watch the Pope who planted the mustard seed way back in Septemebr 2006 and who is a true Leader of the emasculated, pussy West. It will be civilisation vs barbaric islam, already foretold to die.

Signs of its demise: Islam-Watch reports in Russia, some two million ethnic Muslims converted to Christianity last year. Ten thousand French Muslims converted, as did 35,000 Turkish Muslims. In India, approximately 10,000 people abandoned Islam for Christianity. In his book Epicenter, author Joel Rosenberg details amazing stories of Muslims converting to Christianity. In Algeria, the birthplace of St. Augustine, more than 80,000 Muslims have turned to Christ in recent years. This, despite the stiff opposition from Islamic clerics who have passed laws banning evangelism. In Morocco, newspaper articles openly worry that 25,000 to 40,000 Muslims have become followers of Christ in recent years. The stories are even more amazing in the heart of the Middle East. In 1996, the Egyptian Bible Society sold just 3,000 video copies of the JESUS film. In the year 2000, they sold an incredible 600,000 copies. In Sudan, as many as five million Muslims have accepted Christ since the early 1990s, despite horrific persecution of Christians by the Sudanese government. What is behind the mass conversions? According to a Sudanese evangelical leader, “People have seen real Islam, and they want Jesus instead.” In Iraq, “More than 5,000 Muslim converts to Christianity have been identified since the end of major combat operations,” says Islam Watch. And just a few days ago, the first-ever Roman Catholic church was consecrated in Qatar, a Sunni Muslim state where the Wahhabi brand of Islam is practiced. This was the first time Christians in Qatar have been allowed to practice their faith openly. Ten thousand people attended the opening mass. These conversions have not escaped the notice of Islamic leaders. In 2001, Sheikh Ahmad Al Qatanni, a leading Saudi cleric, delivered the disturbing news on Al-Jazeera: Every day, he said, “16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity . . . every year, that is six million Muslims becoming Christians . . . A tragedy has happened.”

Filthy muslims accept Abraham to be their ancestor, then they should also accept that the god of Abraham had CURSED them to be annihilated. And they will, soon.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright says Israel is a dirty word:
Barack Obama's Mentor, Jeremiah Wright - Anti Israel Sermon

His `flock` member Mahdi Obama believes Israel should be divided

And now this condoleeza rice, the horse`s ass, whom even the Hizbollah told to go do something about the gap between her teeth.
She can`t - she`s been lying thru her teeth too much.

THE HAGUE, 28/03/08 - While the cabinet is losing sleep over MP Geert Wilders' unpublished Koran film, a second film is due out on 20 April. Ehsan Jami plans to launch a cartoon film featuring the Prophet Mohammed as a paedophile.

Here in the States, television and cable news seem to have completely ignored Fitna and its message. Talk about stonewalling!

Oh my gosh I had no idea that many Muslims were converting to Christianity. Well, even though I am an atheist and have no respect for the Pope, I am glad to see people turning away from that blood soaked death cult.

HOT! HOT! PICTURES Visit Keith Gladdis, newsoftheworld. SHE was Malaysian child maths genius who won a place at Oxford University aged just 13—but now the only sums Sufiah Yusof is interested in are the ones she earns as a HOOKER. For sad Sufiah the daily equation she has to solve is simply sex equals £130 as she sells her body to punters over the internet. The gifted girl with the winning smile had the world at her feet ten years ago and should be a rich woman by now—but last week she was busy subtracting her underwear for our undercover reporter in her dingy back street flat. "Would you like to start your half hour now?" said Sufiah, 23, as she danced on the bed, displaying her body for examination. Then she listed all the sleazy plus points she would throw in for our man if he took up her offer. Calling herself Shilpa Lee, the former child prodigy still juggles with figures on a hookers’ website, describing herself as a "very pretty size 8, 32D bust and 5′5" tall—available for booking every day from 11am to 8pm." She says she is a "sexy, smart student" who prefers "older gentlemen"— but a former pal who has witnessed her downfall told us: "It is all desperately heartbreaking. "With her amazing brain she should be able to make money any way she wants. But instead her life has spiralled completely out of control." Life has never quite added up for Sufiah. Her descent into prostitution in Salford, Manchester, is the latest in a long line of tragedies to have engulfed her since the sunny day when she posed with her university mortar board for the world’s press outside prestigious St Hilda’s College. Our shock revelations today come in the week her domineering dad Farooq was jailed for sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls as he home-tutored them in maths. And he was always at the root of all her troubles— even as she passed the further maths A-Level she needed for entry to Oxford at the age of 12. In those days Sufia was a strict Muslim child who prayed five times a day and was subjected to her father’s famous Accelerated Learning Technique. Her days involved stretching and breathing exercises in freezing rooms to keep her brain attentive. Sufiah would then study hard and be forced to play tennis with just as much intensity as fanatical Farooq drove her on. The routine was so effective Sufiah was seeded number eight in the country for under 21s. But three years into Oxford, the 15-year-old sparked a massive police hunt after running away. Abuse At the time her father bizarrely claimed Sufiah had been kidnapped and brainwashed by an organisation seeking the key to her intelligence. But Sufiah sent an email to her family describing her life under her father as a "living hell". One message to her sister read: "I’ve finally had enough of 15 years of physical and emotional abuse. You know what I am talking about." Sufiah was missing for two weeks before being found in an internet café in Bournemouth where she had been working as a hotel waitress. She refused to go back to her parents and instead was taken into the care of social services. It was then revealed that Farooq had been jailed for three years in 1992 for his part in a £1.5m mortgage swindle. Before that—at the age of 19—he had been sent to borstal for his role in a conspiracy involving £100,000. Free from the spell of her father, Sufiah returned to Oxford to complete the final year of her Masters in Maths. But she was now more concerned with enjoying herself—and failed to finish the course after meeting trainee lawyer Jonathan Marshall. They were married in 2004 when Sufiah was just 19 and Jonathan 24. But the strains with her family were still there. Despite being invited, Sufiah’s parents and four brothers and sisters failed to turn up to the wedding. Her dreams of a happy life with Jonathan were shattered when the couple divorced just a year later. Now, in her sad little flat, she uses her body to pay the rent. Sufiah met our man, posing as a punter, at the entrance to her building wearing a tiny skirt, leather boots and a tight t-shirt. She was carrying three mobile phones. She laughed and joked as she led him to her small apartment where a bed was already set out in the lounge. She told him it was £130 an hour and offered him a glass of water before putting some music on to a cheap portable stereo and nervously stripping down to her red lace bra and knickers. Sufiah then peeled off her underwear and danced on the bed. She told him she did full sex with a condom and oral sex without protection. After our man had made his excuses, Sufiah kept him talking by telling him how she was studying for a Masters degree in Economics on a part-time two year course in London. The former prodigy added: "I’ve got exams coming up and I’m thinking ‘Oh my God!’" Once described by her parents as "naïve and unstreetwise", she works alone from her flat without any obvious physical security or protection. She even admitted to our reporter: "It’s always a surprise who you are going to meet." Cheerful Sufiah gave no indication of any sadness at the jailing of her father the previous day. On Wednesday Farooq, 50, was sentenced to 18 months at Coventry Crown Court for touching two 15-year-old girls when he was home tutoring them at maths. The court heard how in May last year Farooq arrived at one of the victim’s home for a maths lesson. He started whispering in her ear and kissing her hair and cheek. He also touched her breast and told her she was a genius and pretty before putting her hand on his upper thigh. Destroyed Farooq’s defence lawyer Tim Hannam said: "He’s been back in prison for over five months and knows there’ll be no more teaching and any hope he had of gaining an income from the teaching method he had developed to a high degree of success is lost to him. His reputation is destroyed." Now it’s clear the daughter who fled his strict regime has almost been destroyed too. Her friend said last night: "Sufiah has suffered so many knocks in her life. I just hope she can drag herself out this life she has got herself into. "She is a good person and deserves a much better life than this. Her gift really has been a curse." Muslim scums, here's wishing you go into apopletic fits and break multiple brain capillaries!! Lost the one on Ayatollah Khameini's daughter in similar fashion. Roams the streetsof Europe bra less and in shortest mini skirt.
