[Bumping this up.]
Geert Wilders' film is out (in case you didn't know by now). Here's the full 15 minutes.
It's in Dutch, but you get the picture. (Got the English) "Subtle" is not the word that comes to mind.
Update: The New York Times says the film "...matches graphic images of terrorist attacks and death threats against Jews..." Talk about not getting it.
Update 2: Richard Landes called me to alert me to the fact that LiveLeak had pulled the video citing threats. That tells you much. Play the video above to see LiveLeak's statement -- they cite "ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media" among other things. Earlier, Richard had commented that through some eyes, the video could actually be seen as an effective Jihadi recruiting video. See posts at LGF and Atlas Shrugs.
Here is the video at YouTube (for now -- clearly a reposted version of the LiveLeak -- still has the watermark):
I downloaded the .flv of the video and can make it available if necessary.
Update 3: Canada to the rescue! The Ghost emails with a link to his post with links to torrents and a live, full version (the Youtube above is not complete): Cowards.
You know, I can appreciate LiveLeak's decision given credible threats, but let it never happen that my country ever backs down in such a way. Please, never my country. A nation can never behave that way. Europe may practice a different calculus. Let's hope North America never does.
