Plantagenet wrote:The Dutch fears about this movie seem to have been exaggerated, so far. No riots, no bombings, no murders have occurred.
Plantagenet wrote:Did it have that effect on you? Do you hate and fear Moslems now?
I remember you posted earlier that the movie would somehow cause people to start rioting and killing other people.
Now that you've seen it---did it cause you to do a criminal act in protest against the film?

Bomb all Islamic countries with porn magazines. And after 1 week bomb them again with more porn. That will sure cause them a headache

Islamic religous nuts threaten violence
Hmmmm----novels, cartoons, movies, museums, plays, websites in the EU are all censored or under threat by Islamic extremists.

Its not paradoxical at all.
Its in the very nature of free speech. When people are free to express their views on controversial issues, then it leads to constructive dialogue about those issues.
Its the death threats and soft censorship that cause the problems, not the cartoons or the movies or the museum exhibits or the plays or the exercise of free speech.

Its best not to allow fearful people to control what can be shown in movie theatres or written in books.
