Trivia

This movie was directed and edited under the supervision of Geert Wilders, a Dutch right wing politician. The Dutch public broadcasting network companies refused to air it, and Wilders had declined an offer from the Moslimomroep (MO) or Muslim Broadcasting Company, who wanted to air the film in its entirety. Seeing no other options, Wilders had the film posted on Liveleak, and can now be watched on-line. See more »

Microcosm
1 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm giving this a 10 for two reasons: because it's an important warning to us in the larger tolerant Western world of what happens to smaller, tolerant countries when they make the suicidal mistake of admitting too many outsiders who are culturally and politically unable to assimilate to the tolerant mores of the host country. Wilders reminds Holland of this with the segment on the hangings and drownings of gays.

Second, since this film has gotten noticed, there's been the inevitable infantile tantrum/backlash from the very people it exposes -- proving the larger point. I urge you to take the time, seek out the web video before our own speech police shut it down entirely.

What shocks is not the actual news clippings or footage - we've read it all if we've paid attention the last few years. Our own media have gone out of the way to spare the public from the actual barbarism of our enemies, that is, civilization's enemies. So to see it without varnish is unsettling.

I find it blackly comic that people will brand this as 'racist' (Islam is not a race) or 'offensive'. Wilders has simply assembled footage of their own acts, their own 'videos', their own man in the street candid statements, etc...there's no dramatization or distortion. So how is it offensive? Western civilization long ago hounded out of existence the worst acts committed (falsely) in the name of the dominant religion. It's time Islam did the same. Christianity routinely suffers criticism for the violent passages in the Bible. Where are the riots, bombs and beheadings? If Islamic moral progress is possible, we'll know we're there when we exchange heated words in place of bullets.
