Schism: A Muslim’s video response to Geert Wilders’ anti-Qur’an film Fitna
Barry Duke of The Freethinker writes:
“IT had to happen – a Saudi man has hit back at films criticising Islam in a Fitna-style video which portrays Christianity as a religion of violence.
The film, entitled Schism, was made by Raed al-Saeed. It splices together Bible verses and Iraq war images – including British soldiers beating civilians.
Other images show Christian extremists in America apparently encouraging children to fight a “war” for Jesus.
The film, which was posted on the internet last month, was initially removed by YouTube, the video sharing site. Mr Saeed complained to the site and it has been restored.
And quite rightly so.
Saeed said his film was not intended to outrage or provoke, but rather to illustrate how all religions could be depicted as preaching violence.
In Schism I have used the same methodology that Wilders has used and that involves taking texts out of context.”
