Tom Trento Interview with Geert Wilders on January 25, 2009. Free speech or hate speech–you decide.
Life, Psychology, education, current events, religion, finance, and humor (not) are all part of this story:
From a Reuters , January 22, 2009 article , Prince Turki-al-Faisal , member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family, gave U.S. President Barack Obama some harsh words last Friday. His message was that the Middle East peace process and U.S.-Saudi ties were at risk unless Washington ‘changed’ some tactics and showed some loyalty:
“Unless the new U.S. administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the U.S.-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk…”
“…If the U.S. wants to continue playing a leadership role in the Middle East and keep its strategic alliances intact — especially its ‘special relationship’ with Saudi Arabia — it will have to drastically revise its policies vis-a-vis Israel and Palestine.”
Hmm..a “special relationship”; I wonder just exactly how “special” that relationship actually is… because Turkey actually suggested that, Saudi Arabia will “lead a jihad, or holy war, against Israel.”
Last week Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wrote to HMRH Saudi King Abdullah urging Saudi Arabia to lead a “jihad,” or holy war, against Israel. Our nice friend and ally, Turkki said that if pursued, the call for jihad would create “unprecedented chaos and bloodshed” in the region.
Turkkki said that “So far, the kingdom has resisted these calls, but every day this restraint becomes more difficult to maintain,” he said.
Humor, psychology, culture, life, thoughts, education, random…???
What is wrong with telling the truth? That is exactly what Geert Wilders did when he made “Fitna.” If 2.6 billion good Muslims are having a fit over “Fitna”, who is really in denial here? Perhaps good Muslims do not like hearing verses from their own book either….
I thought good Muslims were trying to spread their religion, so why not let it all hang out so we can all “understand” once and for all? Geert is Great…He is helping non-Muslims understand why they are not Muslims…
If the Koran verses that Geert, the Great, used are innacurate there is a simple solution…remove them from their source. Burn or ban them whatever… don’t interrogate someone who shares them, for heaven’s sake. (I think it’s called “slaying The Messenger”)–In this case, Geert is the messenger, and God is Great).
But who’s kidding who?? I am definitely not kidding when I say that I recognized the verses Geert the Great used (in Fitna) as the very same that I read in the Koran years ago. In fact, I thought Geert presented them mildly, honestly, and sincerely. They are just quotes from the Koran…After all, the Koran is pure and simple …right??
And don’t try to use that “innacurate translation from Arabic” line. If Arabic was such a universal language; sooo-oo perfect, with noo-ooo room for error, it would be easy to translate.
