Fitna, Not-na!

There is a U.S. Internet service provider called Network Solutions that has just banned a Dutch film called "Fitna" because it goes against their "fair use" policy!

It claims the film advocates violence because it quotes passages of the Quran that sanctions the use of war and terrorism to promote and spread Islam.

Even though the film itself was not shown yet, but rather had a notice that it was coming, there was so much of an uproar from the Muslim community that the web-site was closed down by Network Solutions.

We can't even call this "Political Correctness" because terrorist organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-Qaida have, or have had, sites on Network Solutions.

There is something rotten in Denmark (or in this case, the Netherlands!) as the old saying goes, and I'm not talking about just political cartoons here.

This might help explain the controversy better!

A lot of people are cancelling their subscriptions to Network Solutions because they gave in to radical Islamists............. and I don't blame them!

The main problem with Islam right now is that when radicals commit autrocities there is barely a murmour from the Muslim community at large, but if something seems to slight or denigrate THEM, then there is a great uproar and kerfufle including such extreme reactions as death threats and calls for revenge for damage to their "honor!"

Fitna will be on other sites by this weekend so let's see what happens!
