Dutch MP to make gay Islam film

BBC reports A Somali-born Dutch MP who collaborated on the film that led to the murder of director Theo van Gogh has written a sequel, about Islam's attitude to gays.

Look for the next attack of the Islamofascists to be in the Netherlands.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali received death threats after her work on Submission, a film about Islam's treatment of women. Van Gogh was shot and stabbed by a Muslim radical, Mohammed Bouyeri, as he cycled through Amsterdam in 2004. The film will use anonymous actors and carry no credits in an effort to protect those involved in the project. Ms Ali told Dutch media that she had co-written the script with Van Gogh in the summer of 2004, months before he was killed last November. "I examine the position of homosexuals in Islam in the film Submission II," she told the De Volkskrant newspaper. "In the movie, they are called Allah's creatures," she added. The MP is an outspoken critic of Islamic values and describes herself as a "lapsed" Muslim. Mainstream Islamic thought treats Islam and homosexuality as incompatible, and hostility to homosexuals is widespread in many parts of the Muslim world.
When Christian Churches point out verses in the Bible that say homosexuality is a sin, they are accused of being homophobic. The Christians dont kill anyone, or bomb any buildings, they just speak out against homosexuality. It will be interesting to see what the reaction will be when Muslims react to this new Dutch film.

It is a sin in Islam too. The reaction by the extremist is what we seen in the world today. Other religion too also have their own extremist. Understanding the Islam itself it is hard to non Islam. Islam was a moderate approach, it is not hard to study about Islam if we avoid all the bias during a our research. People study about the begining of universe, yet Islam is younger than what they study and still deteriorate to understand Islam as one of religion who ask the follower to have a better life.

I have no doubt that there are many moderate Muslims who are shocked by what the Islamofascists are doing in the name of Islam, but unfortunately they are for the most point silent, and hence they go unnoticed by the world.

When these extremists make wild claims about what the Koran calls for, and when they do obscene things in the name of Allah, you should speak out loudly against them, and provide quotations from the Koran that show that they are wrong. For example, when they attack Christians and Jews, you should point out that Surat al-Baqara, 136 (Qur'an 2:136) says Say ye: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them.

We are all "People of the Book" (or ahl al Kitâb) Surat Al 'Imran, 64 (Qur'an 3:64) says "O People of the Book! Let us rally to a common formula to be binding on both us and you: That we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God."
