The Counter-Jihad goes on. After being threatened by members of the “religion of peace”, LiveLeak was forced to remove the Fitna movie due to safety reasons for it’s staff members. The full explanation is below the video. Thanks to Pamela at Atlas Shrugs for the info about the video being uploaded by Rusty at My Pet Jawa, and to Baron Bodissey for the transcription of the LiveLeak announcement. *L* KGS

The Removal of “Fitna”
Official LiveLeak statement

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed comments from certain members of the British media that could directly affect the safety of some staff members, Liveleak 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. They realised LiveLeak.com is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.

Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one another’s culture.

We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.

  1. on March 31,2008 LiveLeak has restored Fitna with the following statement:

    On the 28th of March LiveLeak.com was left with no other choice but to remove the film “fitna” from our servers following serious threats to our staff and their families. Since that time we have worked constantly on upgrading all security measures thus offering better protection for our staff and families. With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules. We apologise for the removal and the delay in getting it back, but when you run a website you don’t consider that some people would be insecure enough to threaten our lives simply because they do not like the content of a video we neither produced nor endorsed but merely hosted.

    Bravo.
