First there was ‘Submission,’ by Theo Van Gogh, who was slaughtered in the street for his film. Then ‘Fitna,’ by Geert Wilders who lives under constant death threats and must travel everywhere with security. Now comes ‘Interview with Muhammad,’ a new film about women’s rights, Jews, and apostasy.
According to Moroccan newspaper Al-Jarida al-Ula, European Islamist organizations are calling for a boycott of Dutch products because of Ehsan Jami’s movie. The movie will premier December 10th, Jami announced this week in an interview with weekly HP/De Tijd.
The unnamed organization are upset that Jami is coming out with a cartoon move about Mohammed. The ex-Muslim originally planed that, but called it off at the end of March at the urging of justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin. The organizations are calling, according to the newspaper, for a boycott because of the publication of ‘a cartoon movie about the wives of the prophet Muhammad.” Already since last month there have been calls to boycott Dutch products circulating on the internet.
In the 10 minute long movie “Interview with Mohammed”, the former chairperson of the Committee for Ex-Muslims questions Muhammed about women’s rights, Jews and apostasy. In the clip the actor who plays Muhammed will be unrecognizable. The movie will be in English. Jami invited Hirsch Ballin to the movie’s pre-premiere. The anti-Koran movie Fitna of PVV head Geert Wilders led in the past to protests in the Muslim world and several calls to a boycott of Dutch products.
In case you missed these excellent films…
Short film by Dutch movie maker Theo van Gogh in association with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The film deals with the opression of women in many Muslim countries. Van Gogh was killed by a Muslim fanatic in 2004 because of the film. And a note was left on his body saying that Ayaan Hirsi Ali would be next. Submission is the translation of the Arabic word Islam.
Fitna, Geert Wilders’ film about the Quran. Kudos to LiveLeak for taking the kind of principled stand our mainstream media won’t. FITNA’s filmmaker, Geert Wilders,’ life has been threatened by Muslims around the world and now he is facing arrest and trial by Islamic countries that want to silence him for good.
