Ehsan Jami’s Deflower Power?

His new animated film reportedly shows the Muslim prophet, accompanied by his child bride Aisha, on the way to a mosque to “deflower” her. Wilders’ film (and the reaction to it) may be  humdrum, in comparison!

As the world awaits the release of Geert Wilder’s much anticipated film, “Fitna,” we learn that ex-Muslim Ehsan Jami’s animated feature entitled, “The Life of Mohammed,” will also be released within weeks. Jami (b. 1985) is an Iranian émigré to the Netherlands, and member of the city council of Leidschendam-Voorburg, belonging to the Dutch Labour Party. He was one of two founders of the Central Committee for Ex-Muslims in 2007, is a routine recipient of death threats, and at one point, beatings.   

Today from Expatica (Netherlands) we learn that Jami’s animated film on Islam, which “..is bound to come up against opposition. The Contact body for Muslims and the Government has already announced it will take legal steps against the film,” is nevertheless slated to be released April 20th.  

An acute decapitation prevention alert may be in order for Mr. Jami, if and when his film is shown, based upon these pre-release details: 

“Netwerk [a current affairs program]  showed a drawing from the film, which is entitled The Life of Mohammed. The drawing shows the prophet Mohammed in the company of his 9-year-old wife Aisha. The prophet is on his way to a mosque to deflower his bride.”

  1. Reaction to Fitna, which I just watched, will the Mary Tyler Moore Show next to reaction to this.

    Freedom of Speech is like freedom of navigation. You just have to have the Gulf of Sidra’s to ENSURE FREE PASSAGE.

    Freedom of the seas is ultimately guaranteed by the crudest of methods. Lets hope that we are equally determined to defend this.

  2. Hmmm….This will make Fitna look tame.
