Here we go... Live Leak pulls Fitna

due to serious threat. (h/t Hot Air)

In the end the price was too high.

In lieu of Fitna, this statement has now been posted at the site.

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.

Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.

We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.

It is still available via torrent here.

Update: Charles over at LGF has instructions on how to download a copy of the high-quality stereo version over at youtube. Get it while you still can.

This just makes me sick that these sonsabitches keep pulling crap like this and they always get away with it..
