Pro-Islam film to be released in response to 'Fitna' from Iran govt.

A short film titled Beyond Love will soon be released by the Iranian-based NGO Islam and Christianity (IC), in response to the anti-Islamic Dutch film Fitna, the Iranian news agency IRNA reported.

"The film aims to introduce the real Islam. It will be useful for those who want to get acquainted with Islam," said IC spokesman Muhammad Karimi.

Earlier this year, Dutch filmmaker Geert Wilders produced Fitna, which claimed to have explored Quranic motivations for terrorism. The film was condemned by many in the West, as well as in the Muslim world. Al-Qaeda even issued a religious decree against Wilders, while the Dutch government was quick to distance itself from the film.

While IC claims to be an independent organization, Radio Netherlands quoted an Iranian journalist a few months ago as saying that it was created by the government itself.

"It is an NGO of 'convenience'; it is absolutely clear that this is a government initiative," said Mina Sa'adi, a journalist working for the independent Farsi-language website Shahrzad News.

1. This is what logicians refer to as begging the question
"A short film titled Beyond Love will soon be released by the Iranian-based NGO Islam and Christianity (IC), in response to the anti-Islamic Dutch film Fitna, the Iranian news agency IRNA reported. "

Play... spot the legal fallacy for $10 alex!

4. the film Iran will not like
Last month Iran released a film honoring the assassination of Egypt's president Sadat called "death of a Pharaoh" that made the Egyptian very angry, and Egypt is soon going to realse a film about Khomayne called "the imam of blood" - it's going to be interesting watching.
