6. I've watched Fitna.
Geert Wilders should not be on trial for telling the truth. He is being held responsible for showing the images of religious conflict. The term that we refuse to accept and call it a "War On Terror" instead. And just as governments don't want us to see our children and relatives killed in our wars, the Dutch are afraid of showing a facet of Islam that they'd prefer not to think exists. So Fitna is hard to look at for these reasons. It shows us dead bodies and it shows us who made them.

In the end, it is merely the same genocidal language which can be easily found in the Bible. And the Torah. Its the one consistency between all the Abrahamics. Death for their god's sake and to the unbelievers. So no one's got a right to point fingers at anyone else here. It's just religion once again being itself -- barbaric and Bronze Aged. I don't know how people expect for peace to come from the passages of such barbaric blood-thirsty tomes as these. Particularly since we're little better today than they were. We've just gotten much more efficient at killing now that we've graduated to push-button death. So we don't have to look if we don't want too, even if someone like Geert Wilders shoves it in everyone's face.

-">But judge for yourselves (NSFW), it took only about 17 minutes to tell the truth......
