The anti-Islamic short by Geert Wilders entitled Fitna is a good rhetorical ploy in the ongoing War of Ideas. But it is no substitute for our most exigent necessity: an Anti-Islamic Manual.
Because it is not merely Muslims who would protest against Fitna. It is the vast swathe of the broad majority of Westerners who will deem it to be an inflammatory propaganda piece motivated by “Islamophobia”. For, the essence of Fitna is the linkage between the core text of Islam—the Koran—and various expressions of violence by certain Muslims in various locales around the world. That linkage is not permitted according to PC MC, and most people in the West will dismiss Fitna as an unfair attempt at such linkage.
Not only that. Fitna provides only the barest of bones of a schematic of the Problem of Islam. Certainly, that schematic is more than enough for loyal Jihad Watchers. But most Jihad Watchers do not seem to understand that most of the West does not think like them. What eminently suffices for Jihad Watchers does not suffice for most Westerners who are still beholden to the PC MC paradigm. Therefore, much more is needed to turn the worldview of the West, profoundly formed by PC MC as it is, around to rationality with regard to the menace of an Islam Redivivus.
Only an Anti-Islamic Manual will help to begin to chip away at the PC MC paradigm that massively prevents the contemplation of the possibility that the founding texts and the historical traditions of classical Islam are, in fact, a major source of the violence exhibited by Muslims all over the world. For, the film Fitna is missing most of the Sunnah—which is as important (if not more so) to the majority of Muslims than the Koran—, as well as many key verses of the Koran and tafsirs thereof that would copiously supplement its point. In addition, Fitna is lacking in documentation of current legal rulings by Islamic clerics and scholars of the 20th and 21st centuries that reflect and keep alive the supremacist barbarism of medieval Islam.
Without such an Anti-Islamic Manual, Fitna will make a brief splash, but will end up being a drop in the bucket—or worse yet, it will add its splash to the bewildering ocean of too much information, luxuriantly disorganized and confusingly complex, about Islam out there.
