Fitna (film)

Fitna Arabic is a 2008 short film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Approximatelyminutes in length, the film attempts to demonstrate that the Quran motivates its followers to hate all who violate Islamic teachings. The movie shows selected excerpts from Suras of the Quran, interspersed with media clips and newspaper cuttings showing or describing acts of violence andor hatred by Muslims.

The Friends of the Party for Freedom PVV foundation commissioned the film. It contracted a production company credited in the film as Scarlet Pimpernel Productions, a pseudonym adopted out of fear of reprisal. In fact large parts of the documentary Obsession Radical Islams War Against the West written by Wayne Kopping and Raphael Shore were copied.The exact nature of Fitnas release had been uncertain up until its official launch. This was due to concerns of the legality of its content and anticipated acts of terrorism. The Dutch press centre Nieuwspoort offered to release the film, on the condition that Wilders would pay for the increased security required during the press conference and the weeks after it. Wilders declined to do so, citing prohibitive costs. ........
