Anas Hajjar who has been at one time a secretary for the FIS, had this to say about the movie he didn’t watch, “but knew all about it.”
" I believe it to be wrong if free speech is used to attack other people and spread hatred. I got the understanding form the film’s promo that it’s spreading hatred. European laws should prevent such activity, because the spreading of hatred is against the law.”
