(Newser) – A Saudi Arabian blogger has released his response to the anti-Islamic film Fitna, attacking the Bible in Schism much as the Dutch effort savaged the Koran, Der Spiegel reports. “Schism” places images of war alongside the Bible. “It is easy to take parts of any Holy (sic) book … and make it sound … inhuman,” the film concludes.

Fitna, released on YouTube last month by Dutch politician Geert Wilders, has sparked protests across the Muslim world, but not the apocalyptic response many feared. Saudi Raed Al-Saeed has fought efforts by administrators to take his film offline, Der Spiegel notes, arguing it was unfair to remove his effort while allowing Wilders' to remain.
