Fitna film title.jpg

Fitna is a fucking epic film made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders that was released on the internet sometime last Thursday. Fitna is one of a long line of films from the Netherlands that really piss off Muslims - except this one has more of a shock image feel to it. It was first posted on Liveleak only to be promptly taken off the server after the staff received death threats. See below for links.

Fitna - A Quick Review

Allah says your bitch ass got owned, Berg.
Yeah! Fuck you freedom...wait, what?

Fitna is composed of readings of inflammatory and violent passages in the Q'uran intermixed with footage, newsclippings, images of violent acts by Muslims accompanied by Jihad videos and terrorism in action. We see video worthy of, including:

If you can fap to this you are truly a great man.

Quotations by Muslims in the movie

I put on my robe and wizard's hat, and then I pull out my sword and eviscerate a Jew.

A Jew is hiding behind me, come and cut off his head! And we shall cut off his head! *pulls out sword* By Allah, we shall cut it off! Oh Jews! Allahu Akbar!


— A Muslim cleric, expressing common Muslim beliefs

[on Jews] They're apes and pigs!


—Basmallah, a 3 1/2 year old chimera, part little girl part Muslim

Islam is a sacred religion. The best religion there is. If someone converts to Christianity he deserves the death penalty.


— Some Muslim dude

Islam is a religion that wants to rule the world. It has done so before and eventually will rule again.

Fitna's Release

Fitna was released to on March 27, 2008 at 6pm CET. By 9pm the Dutch version had been viewed 1.6 million times. The following day, however, the video was pulled from the website, with this explanation:

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.


—'s staff

By this point, however, thousands of people already had their copies and had plastered it across Bittorrent sites. Even Google Video had gotten in on the fun.

By the 31st, LiveLeak felt itself ready to host the video again.

On the 28th of March was left with no other choice but to remove the film “fitna” from our servers following serious threats to our staff and their families. Since that time we have worked constantly on upgrading all security measures thus offering better protection for our staff and families. With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules. We apologise for the removal and the delay in getting it back, but when you run a website you don’t consider that some people would be insecure enough to threaten our lives simply because they do not like the content of a video we neither produced nor endorsed but merely hosted.

Reaction from Muslims

The Muslim community had a fit after the release of Fitna. YouTube was banned by Pakistan after a trailer for Fitna went up on their website. The website run by the director was promptly shut down by the host. The United Nations Secretary General denounced the movie. The director has had a fatwa issued against him by the friendly folks at Al Qaeda. Governments around Eurabia have gone into overdrive, warning their embassies to be extra careful. Dutch troops in Afghanistan have already been singled out for attack in the last couple of weeks - more attacks are anticipated. Protests have erupted from Denmark to Iran.

Amongst all this bullshit, the Czech National Party offered to host the video to demonstrate freedom of speech.
