An Iron Curtain Descends Over Hungary… Again

The Innocent Prophet

Update: I’m told that Hungary now has the same access as we have here in the USA (i.e. with the content warning).

The new Mohammed movie by Imran Firasat and Terry Jones, The Innocent Prophet, was released yesterday. Sometime yesterday one of YouTube’s “content warnings” was attached to the video, but it is still available, at least in the USA.

However, as of this morning, the video has been blocked in at least one country. Here’s the report from Vlad Tepes:

New Imran film blocked in Hungary

Hermes just sent me the following email:

Hi folks, I’ve just tried to click on my last liveleak post, that of Imran’s film, and this is what I met:

“Your country is prohibited from accessing this item!”


So now we know that countries are able to block out specific material to a degree at least, and we know that Hungary has decided to block a film about the pirate Mohamed for the sole reason that Muslims are thought likely to violently object to it.

This of course is the most likely reason as the material contains no factual error and no other material of a historical or historical biographical nature is blocked, as far as I am aware, in Hungary.

I also think it is unlikely that there will be a reaction to this film in any case, as in the other instances where riots took place, they had all been carefully stage managed well after the fact. The Danish Cartoons for example, and the other US made film which had been out for months and months with nearly no views before the riots started, conveniently and symbolically on 9/11 of this year. This will likely cause as little issues as the hundreds of other anti Islamic videos and documents which are produced daily. Many of which are downright insulting to all things Islamic and not just accurately but unflatteringly biographical.

At the end of the day this means that citizens of Hungary and for that matter, any other nation that discovers they cannot access this sort of material should take it upon themselves as a matter of social and civic responsibility, to produce this material in some manner that people can access, and make it publicly available. Perhaps printing it on DVD’s for example and starting a ‘Grateful-Dead’ style copying tree. Except without all the crappy music.

Governments do not have any right to prevent it’s citizens from accessing information or art. Triply so when it is accurate, and information that a person needs to make decisions about what sort of a future they want for their own people. They may pass laws, but they have no right. If anyone is reading this from Hungary please go to youtube and try and access the film and if that doesn’t work, we shall see what we can do from here as well.

I watched the movie. I've heard and read,previously, most of what it contains.So although it contains nothing new as far as islam is concerned, it confirmed a few conclusions I had come to regarding mohammad being a criminal with a gang that resembles the mafia. I suppose that, since Sicily was invaded my muslims, the legacy they left behind is the mafia; the killings, the omerta, the protection money, the acceptance of lying, the false adherence to religion (Catholicism in the case of the mafia). And I suspect that people such as Karl Marx and Adolph Hitler were aware of the methods that mohammed developed in spreading his evil and they must have incorporated them into their own socialist ideologies. It just makes sense, providing one uses one's eyes to see.

An interesting thought. Was Islam the first totalitarian anti-Christian dictatorship and one that has lasted for 1500 years. Is Mohammed, though long dead, still the beloved leader?

This differs from Christianity, which as it developed in Europe, was essentially feudal in nature. Feudalism was a North European and Germanic concept which spread to the rest of the continent.

Both Viking and Anglo-Saxon societies were feudal and presumably the Germanic Franks took it to France who passed it back to the Norman Vikings. Feudalism pre-dated Christianity but in christianised feudal societies there was God, then the king (kings were a Germanic invention) right down to the slaves at the bottom.

However, the whole of society was based on mutual interaction, give and take. So feudal societies were not dictatorships.

Karl Marx - apparently a satanist who referred to himself as Mr Satan - and Hitler had to remove the feudal and Christian nature of European society so that all society's thoughts were chanelled not to the next level up but to the dictator at the top, saluting Hitler or Stalin in the same blind submission that muslims show in the mosque. Interesting.

Karl Marx on Muslims (and he was definitely not a Satanist):

Declaration of War – On the History of the Eastern Question.

"The Koran and the Mussulman legislation emanating from it reduce the geography and ethnography of the various people to the simple and convenient distinction of two nations and of two countries; those of the Faithful and of the Infidels.

The Infidel is “harby,” i.e. the enemy. Islamism proscribes the nation of the Infidels, constituting a state of permanent hostility between the Mussulman and the unbeliever. In that sense the corsair-ships of the Berber States were the holy fleet of Islam."

Karl Marx in New-York Herald Tribune 1854

I get the message "Your country is prohibited from accessing this item!"

Indeed, Mr john in cheshire. I think that the word mafia is a variation of "mehia" which I think means "hideout" (or something else related to secrecy) in arabic.

Canadians can watch on YouTube. No explanation from LiveLeak about their block on Canadian access.

Mafia was started in Roman times,
pre-dating nutty moslems by at least a good 4 centuries.
