When you play with fire you get burned. Making such a film without realizing the consequences is truly reckless."


Allow me to point out this sickness of which you are currently affected by. It is called Islamic fanaticism.

What you've done, basically, is knowingly or unknowing condoned a vicious murder of Theo Van Gogh. But, how you could come in here and have the audacity to say, "he got what he deserved" along with the usual putrid Islamist hypocrisy is beyond any logical or human explanation.

This great man was slaughtered in broad daylight in his OWN country for criticizing a foreign religion. His OWN country meaning a country where freedom of speech is upheld, value of human life is cherished, and the rights of individuals are protected. Even those of the coward Islamist Supremacist, who slew Theo in according with the teachings of Islam, are protected – though in my opinion he deserves NONE.

If it were up to me, I would have a public beheading prior to extreme torture. Hopefully, someday we will have a leader with my kind of mentality who will hunt down and capture those evil bastards who disregard human life - all for the sake of appeasing the unseen deity – along with their supporters and sympathizers...

Your argument was that Theo said some things he shouldn't have, i.e. criticizing this "great religion of PEACE", therefore he deserves to be murdered.

So, by that rationale, we "non-Muslims" should send hit men and killers to every Islamic nation and kill every Imams, Mullah, and Ayatollahs? Why not, right? I mean, it IS a reasonable argument according to YOU. What Theo did was rather mild compared to what the Islamic preachers of HATE are preaching in their Mosques (military bases). These artists of pain and human misery are preaching the HOLY messages of HATE in so many Mosques, every Friday, with words of killing and maiming of the disbelievers in the worst way imaginable.

p.s. Write to me.

How dare you even call your self a Persian? I'm ashamed to even think we came from the great continent of Asia. You're a disgrace. There are better, braver Persians who are fighting the good fight. Go learn: www.faithfreedom.org
