I have a question for this forum, actually only to the intellectuals and scholars. If you are'nt a Phd please dont bother responding.

I am sure you all have watched Wilder's movie, Fitna. Despite the movie being extremely graphic and focused on the GANGS of middle east (as this is a middle east forum ONLY, other gangs all over the world are pardoned here) What was your opinion on this movie? As an religious scholar if this was submitted to you as a project what would you rate it at?

Let me just highlight a few points to make this grading alittle more easier,

Fristly, All the translation to the quranic verses were Either:

1. completely incorrect as he missed out on Key words and included Extra words that never existed. Hence completely changing the whole translation into somthing New and violent.

2. used completely out of context that they are in.

Secondly, the views of the people in this movie are not of those of a Muslim. Anyone can pay some kid to carry a hateful banner or say hateful words to prove a point. All of the things mentioned in here are the views of some gangs, warlords, drugloads, lawless tribesmen... if these people were tried under islamic law they would be nothing but criminals.

Lastly, The overall message of the movie is "Let's rip out the verses of the Quran that spread hate (refer to point one above, there are no such verses), Islam is out to rule, submit, and destroy the western civilization (WOW, when Islam was revealed and completed, more than a 1000 years ago, no one cared for the western civilzation... so what could have changed, definately not Islam).

My opinion...

1. he is a politician and what do politicians do best... LIE.

2. he is not qualified or has the credentials to form an opinion on a religion... he doesnt even have a bachlors degree in religious studies, let alone being a scholar.

3. His movie is only "hate speech". Common sense dictates that freedom of speech is limited when it comes to Human rights and therefore hate speech is a violation of human rights. Everyone has the right to be respected as a human being and Mr. Wilder's has violated my Right of Respect. As a Muslim I deserve an apology from him for falsely accusing my religion....

Submitting....
