Liveleak Pulls Fitna

It can still be viewed at different avenues on Google Video.

Michelle Malkin updated her site at 4:45 with this notice from Liveleak:

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.

The Drawn Cutless says Liveleak has also been under a hacker attack.

Creeping Sharia questioned Liveleak’s dhimmi-like caveat in the posting of the video:

LiveLeaks’s Statement – “LiveLeak – Redefining Bias” Kudos to LiveLeak for allowing the posting of Fitna, but check out the dhimmi-like caveat: “LiveLeak.com has a strict stance on remaining unbiased…We in no way endorse Geert Wilders, his views, nor the views expressed within Fitna…some of the messages therein are personally offensive…”

So much for the self-proclamation of “unbiased”, and “maverick” as labeled by a WAPO dhimmi. Which of Geert’s 101 words did LiveLeak find offensive?

I wondered the same thing after having seen it. Was it just a CYA type pronouncement designed to placate the fanatics? Well, apparently it didn’t work.

The Jawa Report says in today’s world, thuggery does work.

Mark Steyn on All The News That’s Fitna.

UPDATE ( 3/29):

Outstanding! A Muslim Cleric makes Wilders’ point better than he ever could:

Omar Bakri, the Libyan-based radical Muslim cleric who is barred from Britain, did not think the film was very offensive. “On the contrary, if we leave out the first images and the sound of the page being torn, it could be a film by the [Islamist] Mujahideen,” he said. […]

UPDATE: 

Well well well, what do you know?

Liveleak has had a change of heart.
