AMSTERDAM - Ehsan Jami, founder of the Committee for Former Muslims, has followed Ayaan Hirsi Ali's example and made a short film about radical Islam, the Telegraaf reports.
The film entitled The life of Mohammed should be ready in February or March of next year and will cause more of a commotion than the Danish cartoons of Mohammed, the former Labour PvdA member says.
"I show how violent and tyrannical Mohammed was. This man murdered three Jewish tribes, killed people who left the faith, and married a 6-year-old girl, with whom he had sex when she was 9," Jami says in comment on the contents of the 10-minute film.
The politician, who is still under heavy protection, says the film only shows the facts and does not aim to polarise the situation. "I will give EUR 50,000 to anyone who can refute these facts."
Jami says that the film "is a small step for a man, but a big step for humanity and freedom."
The television station that plans to broadcast the film will not be announced until the last moment. News programme Netwerk has had contact with Jami for some time and has shown interest. The programme will wait until the film is finished before deciding if and how to broadcast it however.
Jami says he has also had contact with CNN, which may decide to air highlights from the film.
Jami says it is a coincidence that Freedom Party PVV leader Geert Wilders is also working on a film on Islam at the moment.
