Jawa Report gets "take down" letter from Geert Wilders

Funny, after all the Geert Wilders post I’ve done, including posting the movie, I haven’t received any such letter. I feel kinda left out! ;)

But the Jawa Report seems to be the initial target…

Rusty Gets a Cease and Desist Request from …. GEERT WILDERS

He’s also contemplating whether or not to ignore the letter:

So, what should I do?

On the one hand, it seems a bit of an insult after all the effort at this blog to support Geert Wilders’ freedom of speech, including a petition started at this blog by Ragnar in which we threatened to boycott the Netherlands if that country prosecuted Wilders criminally or civilly for exercising a fundamental human right, that he would turn around and try to suppress ours. Yeah, I know it’s his lawyers behind it, but still.

On the other hand, I like Geert Wilders* and think his film Fitna–even the second version of it–should get the widest possible distribution. I’m not looking to start a conflict with Wilders and the main point of the film has not essentially changed, even with the forced edits. The point that Islam is somehow connected to Islamist terrorism remains the theme.
