A red carpet premiere missing its star- Independent
Tolerance? Thats just Double Dutch- Jon Gaunt in The Sun (who owe me money)
Flying Dutchman flies home with 'fascist book'- Channel 4 News
Two responses to Geert Wilders- Sid at Pickled Politics
Geert Wilder’s freedom of speech hypocrisy- Sunny at Pickled Politics

I am pretty non plussed about all of this. I can't see any point in stopping anyone speaking. Better out than in, whether I agree with it or not. Anyway, there is some truth in what Geert Wilders says. Some Muslims believe this is Islam. Some think this is taking the Koran out of context. If you look at The Supporters of Shareeah website from back in the day it says this

...The following verse makes it clear that there is no other reason to fight them except that they are Mushriks. Mushriks could save their blood, money and honour by entering a treaty with the Muslims or by paying Jizya (Islamic duty upon responsible, mature non-Muslims, not children below the age of puberty ). Refer to sura 9: v 5.

Also Allah said "Fight them until there is no more fitna, and the whole of the religion is for Allah". After these ayahs were revealed the Prophet e never made a treaty with the Mushriks until he died. The only alternative given to the Mushriks was Islam, sword or Jizaya...

Fitna is here. Some Muslims have made a film illustrating a Bible version of "Fitna" here.

A Mushrik? That's a cross between a Muslim and a beatnik, right? Or is it a cross between a mushroom and a beatnik?
