Anti-Islam film draws protests in Pakistan

Hundreds of "angry Muslims" have marched in Pakistan, protesting an "Anti-Islam" short film by Dutch Politician Geert Wilders, which includes footage of Islamist atrocities.

The 15 minute film, Fitna ("strife" in Arabic) was released online last week, and shows a series of excerpts from the Qur'an, backed up with recent video clips and newspaper stories.

Geert Wilders, who leads the anti-immigration Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Dutch Parliament, says the film is aimed at "showing how verses from the Qur'an are being used to incite modern Muslims to behave violently and anti-democratically."

He describes Fitna as "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization". The short film features footage of terrorist attacks and anti-Western, anti-Jewish rhetoric by Muslim leaders and followers.

Various video clips reveal the ultimate plan by Muslims for Islamic world domination, a goal is being assisted by the Western world under the guise of "political correctness and freedom". A verse from the Qu'ran reads, "Fight them until there is no dissension, and the religion is entirely Allah's."

The Netherlands own Prime Minister, Jan Balkenende spoke out against the short film, claiming "The film equates Islam with violence. We reject this interpretation. The vast majority of Muslims reject extremism and violence... We believe [this film] serves no purpose other than to cause offence."

Wilders says he believes Islam and the Qu'ran are "dangers to the preservation of freedom in the Netherlands." The film finishes with a message saying the West defeated the Nazis and Communism, and now must defeat an Islam that "wants to dominate, subject and seeks to destroy our Western civilization."

In the film, an Islamic leader is seen telling his followers, "We have ruled the world before, and by Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again! The day will come when we will rule America. The day will come when we will rule Great Britain and the entire world!"

Anti-Semitism is a strong part of Islam. Sheikh Bakr Al-Samarai is shown waving a sword, while telling a chanting crowd, "A Jew is hiding behind me, come and cut off his head. And we shall cut off his head! By Allah, we shall cut it off! Oh Jews!... Jihad for the sake of Allah!"

Muslims are brainwashed from a very young age to hate the Jews and the western world. A young Muslim girl is shown being quizzed on her beliefs...
I: Basmallah, How old are you?
B: Three and a half
I: Are you a Muslim?
B: Yes
I: Basmallah, Are you familiar with the Jews?
B: Yes
I: Because they are what?
B: They're Apes and Pigs
I: Because they are apes and pigs? Who said they are so?
B: Allah
I: Where did he say this?
B: In the Koran
Wilders' short film Fitna was originally posted on the website LiveLeak.com on March 28th, but was removed shortly after because of threats to the company's staff and their families. It has now been reposted on the site following various security upgrades.
