Islamic Da Vinci Code

Last week a movie was published by an MP in the Netherlands concerning Islam. I was one of the few who were actually able to watch it before it was pulled off the internet for the following reasons:

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.
I find it so interesting that this sort of stuff can happen. I know everyone always says this and I hope the repitition doesn't take away the powerful side to this argument but can you imagine if Christians reacted to the Da Vinci Code like this? Can you Imagine if we marched with signs like this:Photobucket Demanding the death of the producers, the actors, and Tom Hanks? Obviously we would be outside of Christ on it but still I'm not talking about that. We are blinded by a media who equates Islam with peace and who is petrified of offending the hoards because of exactly what we are seeing...again...from a group of people who have been lied to their whole entire life. Willders movies Fitna, is not offensive to Islam, it states the facts of a large sect within Islam who threatens the majority if they speak out against them. It's repulsive and it is awfully familiar. Rome didn't fall in a day right? Here is the video that is causing this outrage and just as a reminder it is pretty graphic:


"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few." Matthew 7:13-14
