It’s both amazing and disgusting to witness the highly dhimmi-like attitude of the US web server, Network Solutions. I believe that Geert Wilders chose an American server just for that reason, censorship, not being convinced that a European server that wouldn’t react in the same way as Network solutions is currently behaving.
Shame on Network Solutions for pulling the site, and if they end up refusing Wilders the right to show his video at all, then I hope NS receives soo much bad publicity for their censorship reflects in their pocketbooks.
A U.S.-based web service, which Islam critic and Dutch right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders planned to use to show his film critical of the Koran, said on Saturday that it had inactivated the site due to complaints. “This site has been suspended while Network Solutions is investigating whether the site’s content is in violation of the Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy,” the company said on the site www.fitnathemovie.com.
Wilders, who has given few details about his 15-minute film, has said he plans to release ‘Fitna’ on the Internet before the end of the month after Dutch broadcasters declined to show it. Fitna is a Koranic term sometimes translated as “strife”. Wilders still plans to show his film despite the setback, Dutch agency ANP reported.
“If need be, I will personally distribute DVDs in the Dam,” ANP quoted him as saying. The Dam is the central square in Amsterdam, popular with both the Dutch and tourists.
