Liveleak has pulled “Fitna”, the new Geert Wilders movie after reveiving multiple death threats to their staff.  You can still find the video on Google for now.  Click here to watch.

Here is their statement:

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been
left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to
place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would
like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and
religions, who gave us their support. They realised LiveLeak.com is a
vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.
Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a
discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can
accept one anothers culture.

We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.”

    Liberty requires freedom of speech, and liberty is never established without courage and sacrifice. Any threat against God-given liberty is in fact a declaration of war.

    A government which fails to defend the liberty, and therfore the freedom of speech of its citizens, should eventually be overthrown – either by the enemies of liberty, or by its own citizens – preferably the latter.

    You are a coward, either as an individual or as a nation, and don’t deserve liberty, if you voluntarily relinquish liberty to its enemies. It is better to die a free man than to live as a coward.

    I do hope those who were making threats are found, arrested, confined, and then deported. We do not need them in this country.

    Muhammed was a gangster, and Islam a gangster code of conduct (A Religion! HAH) Specifically, TAKE the Meccan Caravan for loot. The Quaran in Chapter 8 specifically describes distribution of loot. Muhammed? The Perfect Gangster? Killed for money and vanity. Tortured for money. And it just gets worse. Islam, the totalitarian gangster religion. You say no. Haw, they will kill me be just as soon as they can find me.

    Primative human sacrifice.

    Those who will not give their lives for freedom, deserve neither
