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 »

Brace yourselves! The Omen Has Arrived!
27 March 2008 | by martinjakobsenSee all my reviews

For its purpose, Gert Wildeers pulled off a horrifically tragic and impressive piece of short-film. It shows how Islam and the Quran is misinterpreted by radical Muslims and a couple of the consequences of just that. The short-film is designed to bring out fear in the audience by telling the old sad story of terrorism and the bad experiences that has risen throughout Europe and the USA.

No doubt - What is shown is true. What this movie doesn't show us is the good Muslim doing his job, the Muslim making friends with Europeans and Americans and the Muslim adapting to his new environments. To generalize and expect people to be dumb as cattle are not the way to go about these matters. Digging even deeper trenches between the Islamic culture and western culture is a bad idea. Unless You just wanna say "fcuk it" and arm up as we speak. I don't have the solution to these problems that we experience these days. I just don't feel that this short-film is going to help solve anything at all... Especially in this turbulent time of satiric drawings and no-good trade embargoes.

Somebody needs to give that man a hug. There are lots of Muslims acting retarded in this world. But luckily there are significantly more acting like the rest of us.

God bless us all!

//Martin Jakobsen
