A “Fitna”

There is no contest between those who hate; they are all alike and perhaps they deserve each other, but this planet and the majority of the population on this planet do not deserve them.

The movie Fitna, is testament of shame both for its filmmakers and for those appearing in it who preach hate to empower themselves. This is a movie made to give rise to hatred, under the guise of warning about hatred. Another moviemaker could just as well show images from Iraq, Guantanamo, Afghanistan etc… and mix these with speeches made by US conservative preachers , certain politicians and talk show hosts, but what will all this achieve except more hatred and more killings?!

There is no contest between those who hate; they are all alike and perhaps they deserve each other, but this planet and the majority of the population on this planet do not deserve them.

The film ends, with the words: “defend our freedom”!

If the words were to be “defend our human values”, then this movie would have never been made. Because one may be free to hate, but one can not be humane and hate with so much conviction and on this level, whether an atheist, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Jew , Muslim or …
