"If need be, I will personally distribute DVDs in the Dam,"

"If need be, I will personally distribute DVDs in the Dam," ANP quoted [Wilders] as saying. The Dam is the central square in Amsterdam, popular with both the Dutch and tourists.

A U.S.-based web service, which Islam critic and Dutch right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders planned to use to show his film critical of the Koran, said on Saturday that it had inactivated the site due to complaints.

"This site has been suspended while Network Solutions is investigating whether the site's content is in violation of the Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy," the company said on the site www.fitnathemovie.com.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands, March 22 (UPI) -- Muslims in the Netherlands demonstrated Saturday against a film on the Koran made by a right-wing member of parliament.

The protest in Amsterdam occurred the day after the Netherlands Islamic Federation asked a court to determine if Geert Wilders could be blocked from showing the film, Deutsche Welle reported. The court is scheduled to rule next Friday on whether to set up a board of censors to review the film.

Non-Muslim groups participated in the protest, arguing that Wilders, head of the Party for Freedom, is a racist.

They haven't seen the film, and if they had it wouldn't make any difference because the Netherlands is not a totalitarian nation so far. Wilders has a legitimate right to show a political film there and on the Internet, so far. And again: What race is Islam?

Similar attempts to shut down all criticism of Islam via complaints to internet website hosts is bound to increase as Mohammadans find ever more ways to exploit Western technology and multi-culti shibboleths to promote soft-Sharia. For fear of upsetting any Muslim who claims to be offended by anything, the West will essentially end up submittiting itself to Sharia by default.

Will the West never wake up and defend itself from this latest Mohammadan onslaught?

Due to technical daemons mucking with the works here, I have managed to lose a comment from the people at the always intelligent and reasonable site, Muslims Against Sharia. I apologize for that, regardless of the cause, and have now disabled the moderation feature here. Post away and wait for me to correct anything inappropriate as I am able. I'm very much down on death threats directed against third parties.

I've found and copied the comment from Muslims against Sharia, the link likely not working directly here. Please copy and paste as you will:

Wilders Movie Website, Network Solutions, Is Caving Into Radical Islam.

Muslims Against Sharia neither endorse nor condemn "Fitna"; we have not seen the film. However, we find it disturbing that Network Solution suspended "Fitna" website while hosting a multitude of radical Islamic websites, some of which belong to (or are closely affiliated with) terrorist groups.
