The hide and the chutzpah of these Koranimals is galling. First they throw a guy in jail for 10 years for allegedly sending anti-profit tweets, and when somebody Â in the dhimmified western media reports it fairly and squarely they also throw hissy fits. Is there not one polit-prop left among us who has the cojones to tell these jerks to stick their profit up their asses or wax their mustaches with what’s left of him?
“Islam, an absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, a rotting corpse which poisons our lives.”--Â attributed to Kemal Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey.Â (disputed)
Â Turkish Muslims slam blasphemous article on Yahoo News
(AhlulÂ BaytÂ NewsÂ Agency) – An article on popular news website Yahoo News on Monday has drawn widespread criticism from Turkish theologians for its blasphemous content and manipulation of fundamental Islamic principles.
The controversial article, written by Donald Pennington, refers to Islam in its headline as “dangerous” and “outdated” and suggests that it should be rejected by all. Referring to the conviction of a Kuwaiti man, Hamad al-Naqi, to a 10-year jail sentence for insulting the Prophet Muhammad, it describes Islam as a threat to the freedom of expression.*
Professor Hamdi DÃ¶ndÃ¼ren, a theologian, said the allegations in Pennington’s article are groundless and based on ignorance about fundamental Islamic principles.
DÃ¶ndÃ¼ren warned that the publication of such articles that insult Islam and the Prophet Muhammad foment Islamophobia in the West. (Me thinksÂ DÃ¶ndÃ¼ren Â is full of shiite/ed)
Pennington’s article also referred to the protests in the Islamic world in response to a Danish cartoonist’s publication of images of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005. He claimed that the controversy showed that “any religion with such vehement hatred for free expression must be kept in check.”
Professor Ã–mer Faruk Harman, another theologian, said he supports freedom of expression, but this does not mean that people are free to insult the values of another person.
(“….Â supports freedom of expression, but…” that does it for me.)
“One can enjoy freedom of expression as long as they do not violate the freedom of others. For instance, a Muslim cannot use insulting statements about Jesus Christ,” Harman said. According to Harman, the reason for frequent attempts among Western writers to present their own misinterpretation of Islam is because Islam has since its birth been seen as a threat to the spread of Christianity.
I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea. He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap. My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will; every man can follow his own conscience, provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him against the liberty of his fellow-men.
