Salman Rushdie surprised Amnesty "suffering from a kind of moral bankruptcy"

Quote of the day:

To be free is better than to be unfree – always. Any politician who suggests the opposite should be treated as suspect.— Margaret Thatcher

“Amnesty International has done its reputation incalculable damage by allying itself with Moazzam Begg and his group Cageprisoners, and holding them up as human rights advocates. It looks very much as if Amnesty’s leadership is suffering from a kind of moral bankruptcy, and has lost the ability to distinguish right from wrong. It has greatly compounded its error by suspending the redoubtable Gita Sahgal for the crime of going public with her concerns. Gita Sahgal is a woman of immense integrity and distinction and I am personally grateful to her for the courageous stands she made at the time of the Khomeini fatwa against The Satanic Verses, as a leading member of the groups Southall Black Sisters and Women Against Fundamentalism. It is people like Gita Sahgal who are the true voices of the human rights movement; Amnesty and Begg have revealed, by their statements and actions, that they deserve our contempt.”

    Right is wrong and wrong is right with Muslims and lefties– no wonder they are allies in spite of being political opposites. Ultimately these fascists and communists hate democracy more than they hate each other. Let's not forget that we are fighting two great evils: it's not just Islam, but communists that are our countrymen as well.
