First, don't make a movie without running its content past al-Qaeda for approval:
al-Qaeda has handed down a death sentence against Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders for his not yet released film about the Koran. "Jihad against Wilders" is splashed in huge letters across its front page. The paper writes that the al-Qaeda terrorist network has called on its followers to "bring us the throat of this unbeliever" and has also called for the Netherlands to be terrorised to prevent the film being shown.Second, watch out who you have coffee with:
A married university professor has been sentenced to 180 lashes and eight months in prison for having coffee with a female student.So, he agreed to meet the woman, provided she bring a chaperone. But, like Marion Barry, the bitch set him up:
The professor of psychology at Umm al-Qra University in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, was caught in a "honey trap" operation after angering members of the religious police during a training course, his lawyer said.
The academic is said to have received a call from a supposed student, who asked to discuss a problem in person; he agreed, provided she brought along a brother as a chaperone.
When the man arrived at the meeting place, the girl was alone, and he was arrested for being in a state of khulwa - seclusion - with an unrelated female.How would you like to live in a "society" in which you could be whipped and imprisoned for being alone with a woman that the police had sent to be with you?
Update: I recieved the following comment from my friend Tanja, who is Dutch.
Geert Wilders is a nutcase. He knows very well what he is doing by making this movie, full with hatred. This is pure provocation, and has nothing to do with freedom of press or speech anymore.The fact that the Islamists can be stirred to call for violence and murder by the ravings of a nutcase just goes to prove the point that they permit no perspective other than their own. The point of my post was not so much to bring attention to Wilders, but to the unreasonable expectation of the Islamists to live in a world in which no person is permitted to offend them.
It is dumb. I guess he thinks he is quite something that he can shake up everyone with his movie, and so gets known all over the world. Too bad he made it into your blog
