The importance of the Fitna Rosetta Stone project is underlined by recent events in Indonesia. I wanted to include a translation into Malay, but I don’t have a contact who knows the language. If anybody knows someone who can translate into Malay, please refer them to me (email@example.com).
On Tuesday the Indonesian government banned the broadcast or distribution of Fitna. But that wasn’t enough to protect their sensitive citizens from possible damage, so they have called on YouTube to remove copies of the video from its site.
Also, from NIS News comes this report:
Indonesian authorities yesterday failed to prevent disturbances at a Dutch consulate. The Netherlands does not want to conclude that this was intentional, but is making contact with Jakarta.
Some dozens of Islamic students besieged the Dutch consulate in Medan, Sumatra yesterday in reaction to MP Geert Wilders’ anti-Koran film, Fitna, released last week. They vandalised the gateway, tore down the Dutch flag from the flagpole and set fire to it.
All of this explains the massive number of visits to our Fitna download posts by Indonesians who find GoV via internet search engines. After all, there’s nothing like banning a movie to make people want to see it. I only wish that we could provide them a link to a version with subtitles in their own language.
The latest table of Fitna download sites is below the jump. Readers have been keeping me informed, and I removed a couple of dead links, corrected some errors, and added two direct YouTube links to versions with Italian subtitles.

Hat tip for the NIS article: Fjordman.
I wonder if, since the Koranic quotes are in Arabic, Arabic is being forgotten about. There are a lot of newspaper headlines and spoken dialog that is not Arabic so it is also a major language to get a translation for.
Snake Oil —
I didn’t forget Arabic; I tried to find a volunteer translator for it, but never got one.
I would love to have translations into the major languages of Muslim countries. I’d like to cover all the significant languages, especially those along the Bloody Borders.
For what it’s worth, this is my current wish list for languages:
I left out Korean and Japanese because of the very small number of Muslims in those countries. And I probably left out others, too, but I’m sure someone will remind me. 🙂
Please try Laura Mansfield for the arabic translation:
It is Really A good job, World and especially the Muslims need to see more and more of that so they change whatever wrong in their religion, and please all Muslims, you need to be fair before you condemn this work.
Just to clarify my position, I didn’t feel that your site or project was personally forgetting about Arabic but rather that those who were capable of doing the translation might have not been aware of the need due to the Arabic textual content in the film.
I think it is a great idea to amass these translations and the fact that several of them are in torrent form allows those of us with no multilingual skills to at least help out by downloading the file to help its distribution.
I have been running six links to direct download sites for the past week. I too got a large number of visitors from Indonesia; they outnumbered all others. Most were from Google searches.
I want to save copies on my own hard drive of various versions in case of a censorship crackdown. I didn’t have one in Dutch, but thanks to your links I do now (from JewTube).
The Indonesian anti-Jihadists have resided here since many years back:
Go to someone who is active at the main/English FFI forum and they should be able to find a translator for you.
i used Moyea flv downloader,it’s free.
