Free Speech; that's what its all about!

Letting terrorists dictate what we may read or see

Terrorists are now exploiting the YouTube clip Innocence of Muslims to foment hatred and curb the free speech of democracies – and I fear they will succeed with the timid West:

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Monday to tell the United States it would face more anger and grave repercussions across the Muslim world unless it suppressed a film that demeans the Prophet Mohammad.

If we give in to threats from such people, we do not deserve our freedom.

But why wait for Muslims to threaten to cut our throats, when “human rights” groups are doing it for them already?

Where will the demands for censorship stop? First, The Satanic Verses had to be banned.  Then the Mohammad cartoons. Now Innocence of Muslims.  Next, even Dante’s Inferno?

Gherush92, a human rights organization that consults for UN bodies on racism and discrimination, is calling for Dante’s “Divine Comedy” to be removed from schools and acknowledged as racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic.

Glenn Beck gets it, too:

“You’re being set up, America. Your freedom of speech is being set up and it’s being set up all over the world,” Beck said. “If you say somebody on YouTube can’t make a video that is offensive to somebody else, you stop everything, free speech is dead, the First Amendment is over. That’s what this is really all about.”

Yudhoyono rallies the OIC:

Indonesian president urges UN to issue rules on religions defamation

… In a speech before a national meeting of the Nahdlatul Ulama in Cirebon, West Java, Yudhoyono said “I call on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the UN to mull over international protocol to prevent things like this from happening again,” referring to the anti-Islam film “The Innocence of Muslims.” …

Paki Islamic supremacist leader warns: “The US must make a law against blasphemy – or we will not let the US consulates in Pakistan function”

There should be severe blowback, instantly:

Obama should say that he will protect both the freedom of speech and the consulates — not that we really need the consulates in Pakistan. But he won’t. “Ultimatum to US: ‘Criminalise blasphemy or lose consulate,’” by Rana Tanveer for the Express Tribune, September 17 (thanks to JW):

LAHORE: Several Muslim parties and a Christian group held rallies on Sunday to protest against a movie released in America.

Speaking to a large  gathering, Jamaat-i-Islami Ameer Munawar Hasan said the film had been produced by a Zionist with US support.

He said, “If the US claims to be a civilised nation, why does it stoop to insult other religions and civilisations?”…

So for Hasan, the height of being “civilized” is being an authoritarian state in which Muslims are a protected class and Islam is immune from criticism.

But W0J readers know that the honor of muslims lies in insulting the kuffar, so which truth is he telling today?

“The honor of Islam lies in insulting the unbelief and the unbelievers (kafirs).  One who respects kafirs dishonors Muslims…  The real purpose of levying the Jizya on them is to humiliate them… [and] they remain terrified and trembling.” Islamic Jihad

  1. For a long time I have stated that fear is the key, which Muslims have used to subjugate Western society. Even though Muslims are a minority, they are united, and around a central authority – the mosque. It is thus a war between a united force, which is also armed, against a large group of disorganised and disunited individuals. This is a “no contest”. Moreover, Muslims have the support of 50 odd Muslim countries, and have also shown that they are not averse to using lethal force.

  2. You Tube will probably submit and remove the video “innocence of muslims”. They have form. They removed British Freedom and Islammonitor vidoes. Islammonitor was actually banned from YouTube. Videos which told only the truth about Islam and muhammedans.

  3. Beck is correct.

    This ‘is’ a set up.

    And ain’t it just convenient enough, that the American elections are less then 50 days away.


    We are awake and watching.
