Recently, an incident at the prestigious Venetian museum, Ca Rezzonico, caused a stir when one of their guards asked an Arab tourist to remove her niqab, a veil concealing all but her eyes. After she had purchased a ticket to the museum, she made her way to the second floor with her family and was advised to remove her veil. She refused, and a political firestorm ensued.
The museum director apologized. “It was a decision taken by the guard who has committed a serious error.” But was it really a mistake? According to their own guidelines for immigrants issued in 2007, it wasn’t. Instituted under the previous center-left government, the law prevents niqabs and burqas because, “they prevent the identification of the person and are an obstacle to the interaction with others.”
Member of the anti-illegal immigrant Northern League, Sen. Castelli requested that the justice minister ensure the safety of the guard’s position at the museum. “He should be given an award, not punished,” cautioned the deputy mayor of nearby Treviso.
Whether the guard was justified in his action, at least the concerning parties are in an environment where they can speak openly and candidly without being labeled racists.

So when they (the Jews) exceeded the limits of what they were prohibited, we said to them: “Be you monkeys, despised and rejected.” ~Surah 7:166 of the Koran in describing how Allah transformed Jews into monkeys and pigs as punishment for their transgressions (from the book Islam and the Jews by Dr. Gabriel PhD).
That’s my small attempt to protest the outrageous removal of ‘Fitna’ from various web sites.
Millions watched ‘Fitna’ for the few hours it was online. Millions are concerned with the ongoing sanitization of Islam carried out by western elites, and millions want to learn about verses which came after Mohammed’s Mecca revelations. Elites don’t like what Islam became after Mohammed failed to convert Jews and Christians in Medina. ‘Fitna’ doesn’t incite, it tells the truth by using the words of Mohammed, peace not be upon him.
In the film, Wilders merely uses sermons from imams, words from the Koran and actions of faithful Muslims to provide a more complete picture than the one we are getting from elites in the media and educational institutions. And I applaud him.
