What's the perfect film to combat Geert Wilders?

There is already one, created by the late Moustapha Akkad, in the mid 70's. It was The Message, and I feel that this film should be reissued in light of the attacks by far-right pundits in a bid for personal gain.

On another note, be sure to check Ali Eteraz' review of the film while you're at it.

It is evident that in order to combat negative perceptions, we will have to work twice as hard to combat the messages that this man is conveying. Instead of wasting time on idiotic proposals to boycott Dutch products (which will be more of a collective punishment while inflicting zero effect on Wilders), this is a much better route to defend Islam.

I'd normally say to ignore these people, but with the massive amount of publicity this guy is getting, something has to be done. Just remember Muslims, the more you use your emotions, the further he is emboldened.

The Message is a truly amazing film. I've watched it twice already, and will be sure to watch it again.

Posted about it on my blog as well, so that it might reach a wider audience.
