LiveLeak caves in on Wilders' video

Well, that didn't take long. The Religion of Peace has forced LiveLeak to remove the video. Here's what they say on their site:

"Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers. This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else.

We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high"

This is a great Comment from a Scandinavian reader:

"I'm a student at one of the largest European universities with a significant Muslim student body. This university of course is a very liberal institution which stresses inclusion and tolerance for all minorities and religions. Muslims here have numerous organizations and clubs; they have their own prayer rooms and they are even allowed to construct a large replica of Kaaba (the cube-like structure containing the Black Stone) on Ramadan, right in the centre of the campus.

One would think that Muslims would be satisfied with these numerous accommodations and that we would all coexist in harmony". [No, my friend, I for one would not think that. This is because they're applying the salami approach - for every concession yielded, look for the next one]

"However, that proved to be insufficient and recently they asked the university to provide them with halal food. The administration of course has acquiesced [naturally, we are dhimmis, after all] and the university's biggest restaurant has added halal products to its menu. But that was not enough. You see the restaurant, catering to all the students of course, sells alcoholic drinks. What's more, it has a dance floor where people, well, dance… when they feel like it.

Apparently though Allah forbids alcohol and dancing so the Muslim students' union has asked the university to ban dancing and the sale of alcohol at the said restaurant in the name of tolerance and respect. ['In the name of tolerance' - I love that!]

It's unclear how all this will play out, since these brazen demands have created a backlash among even the most liberal of students. But the moral of the story is clear. We're not dealing with extremists here. I'm sure that most of the Muslim students would condemn terrorism and that none of them would want to harm innocent people. They will graduate and find jobs. And yet they refuse to integrate culturally into the mainstream society. Why would that be?

Islam is a community and a way of life; its members share common values, assumptions and moreover they are convinced that Islam is the only way since it is the God's way. Being a cohesive group, Muslims promote their interests at the expense of the rest and their efforts will only intensify as their numbers and influence grow in our society.

That's why it's misleading to attempt to draw a line between the extremists and non-extremists. [Exactly - this is the key point]. Their means are different, but the end result – spread of Islam – is the same even if most Muslims do not ask themselves on a daily basis what they can do to advance their cause and would not want anything to do with terrorism.
What's happening at my university is a microcosm of what is taking place in Europe at large.

This brings me to another important point. Geert Wilders has done us a great service with his movie. The Muslims will likely violently overreact again like they did in the past, betraying their deep-seated insecurity, and more Europeans will start asking themselves whether they want their countries to continue mass immigration policies. This, however, is not enough. It's not enough to expose Islam; it is essential to ask why Europe is falling pray to this alien religion.

The reason is that Europeans have become a hollow, hedonistic and deracinated lot, with nothing with which to oppose Islam. Wilders urges Europeans to defend their freedom. Freedom is a great value, but without positive cultural imperatives, whether religious or national, it becomes a void which is now being filled by Islam. That's why I doubt that many Europeans will rush to the ramparts to defend their freedom with which most of them do not know what do with anyways. In the final analysis then, if Europe does become Islamized we will only have ourselves to blame. European culture is the problem, not Islam. Islam is just a consequent.

Isn't this a great Comment? He/she has it on the button. Islam's takeover is not so much a reflection on Islam, more on ourselves. If it came to a direct battle between the West and Islam, be it militarily, economic, social or whatever, the West would win hands down every time. But we've fallen into a trough of some sort which will give them victory by default. Then we'll look back and ask what happened to the freedoms we took for granted.

You can see the video now on Parapundit
"Mass immigration the biggest mistake in all of Dutch history" say the Dutch. See recent survey at this site

My information from a freind in Manchester familiar wth several LiveLeak staff suggests that it was pressure from the UK Government rather than Muslim threats that got the video taken off. Don't know which is worse.

I suspected that it was the government.

Islam isn't the enemy. The real enemy are the multi-culti liberal leftie shitheads who are allowing
this to happen.

Your "friend" is leading you down the garden path. How can they be familiar with "several liveleak staff" then only one resides and works in Manchester?

I do happen to know this person and I haven't heard about the UK government ever contacting them.

I love how that Dutch news article quickly gets the fact that a majority of the population considers Islam the country's greatest threat, and then spends several paragraphs obsessing about a pointless survey about Dutch history. Even when the MSM dares to mention the truth, it STILL buries it under a pile of nonsense.
