FITNA

Can't find FITNA? Found one of the fake versions on YouTube instead? Try this link:

AJM's FITNA

This is the version I saw on LiveLeak a few days ago.

RightCrazy has some other links as well as a downloadable version:

This thing is out there and the genie’s damned well not going back into the bottle. And now that you’ve managed to work your usual magic of murderous intimidation, even more people are going to want to see it to find out what the hell all the fuss is over.  Here’s a list of some of the places where you can still download the video and see it for yourself:


AJM (dedicated server — very fast)

Bivouac-ID (French subtitles)

Czech Infidel (Czech subtitles)

Daily Motion (flagged as inappropriate — must register to see it)

Google video

Isohunt (links to torrent sites)

Rapid Share (flv format)

Rapid Share (wmv format)

The Pirate Bay (bit torrent)


If none of those work, just click here and download it from my server (about 35MB in .wmv format for now) to keep on your hard drive.  Here’s a torrent link, if that’s more your style.  And as soon as I can find it in a format that’ll embed good here, I’ll be doing that too.


I don't know the site, but that particular post is worth reading in full.

    Well, thank you, Valda, for the kind word. Always nice to hear that I'm being appreciated on the far side of the pond. ;) I was wondering about something, though; perhaps you could enlighten me (if you don't have more interesting things to do, of course?):

    I've been getting quite a bit of feedback from folks in the UK since that post, most of it along the same track of thought: "Are you stark raving mad? Aren't you afraid that they'll try to kill you or your family??"

    Rather odd stuff, it seems to me. A friend of mine put forward the hypothesis that Brits are more easily intimidated (en masse, as it were) since disarming themselves.

    While I brushed it off at first, it did get me thinking: I grew up around guns, I own dozens of them now, and everyone here (my children included) is well versed in their safe use; and yes, I do suppose that I draw something of a sense of security from that.

    What might your opinion be?

  2. I don't see how possessing guns would stop people from fearing the Islamicists. Having a gun to hand wouldn't have helped the victims of 9/11, or London, or Madrid - only a proper foreign policy could have done that. I don't think having a gun would be much of a defence against targeted assassination either.

    As for the issue of gun possession as a right, while I don't approve of the British government's total ban, I do think guns should be subject to some sort of restriction. The trouble with guns is that it's so *easy* to kill with them - lose your temper in the car park, shoot the guy who stole your space, accidentally hit a passer-by as well... I also come from a gun-owning family btw(my father had several, including a police revolver) but I've never particularly wanted to carry a gun myself.

    Thomas Bowden of the Ayn Rand Institute wrote an interesting article on this, Defining the Right of Self-Defense by Gun - an excerpt:

    As the Declaration of Independence recognizes, governments are created to protect our individual rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The right of self-defense is included and implied in the right to life. In forming a government, citizens delegate the task of defending themselves to the police. But to delegate is not to surrender. Each citizen retains the ultimate right to defend himself in emergencies when his appointed agents, the police, are not available to help.

    But what constitutes an emergency? What acts of self-defense are permissible in such a situation? And what tools may private citizens own for emergency self-defense? The law’s task is to furnish objective answers to such questions, so that citizens may defend their lives without taking the law into their own hands.



    And Ayn Rand's own words (recorded in Ayn Rand Answers ) are worth remembering:

    Q: What is your opinion on gun control laws?

    AR: I do not know enough about it to have an opinion, except to
    say that it's not of primary importance. Forbidding guns or
    registering them is not going to stop criminals from having them;
    nor is it a great threat to the private, non-criminal, citizen if he has
    to register the fact that he has a gun. It's not an important issue,
    unless you're ready to begin a private uprising right now, which
    isn't very practical. [Ford Hall Forum 1971]

    Q: What's your attitude towards gun control?

    AR: It's a complex, technical issue in the philosophy of law. A
    handgun is an instrument for killing people--they are not carried for
    hunting animals--and you have no right to kill people. However,
    you have the right to self-defense. I don't know how the issue is to
    be resolved to protect you without giving you the privilege to kill
    people at whim. [FHF 73]
