Free Speech For 'Hate Preachers'

Abu Hamza preached genocide of unbelievers for more than a decade. Anjem Choudary and many others like him get to speak wherever they want. But those who tell the truth about Islam are being targeted and destroyed.

mosque_2905399bI think we need a clear definition of who the hate preachers are. In the UK, the hate speech laws are used to muzzle the truth tellers, to intimidate and arrest them and to keep people like Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller out. Never trust a politician who cannot get himself to say “Islam” or “Muslim”.

Street-preacher “causing offence”

Street Preacher Charged With ‘Religious Aggravation’ for Comparing Jesus and Muhammad

Street evangelist Mike Overd, a client of the Christian Legal Centre, is being prosecuted in the United Kingdom for an alleged religious aggravation public order offence. The charges follow a complaint to police in Taunton, that Overd made a comparison between the perfect life of Jesus and the life of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.

Tony Abbott apologises to Alan Jones for not acting on ‘hate preachers’

The Guardian

Prime minister says a red card system “will happen quickly” after Alan Jones raises concerns about Lakemba lecture

“Then I suppose we need to have another look at Hizb ut-Tahrir to see if they fall under the definition. I’ll need to get fresh legal advice once the law has changed.”

The red card system for hate preachers flagged by Abbott on Wednesday morning appears to mean the government will use the existing law to prevent people entering Australia. The prime minister said what he was talking about did not require a change in the law.

Leyonhjelm:  terrorism laws are an attack on free speech

…. this is likely to criminalise a range of legitimate speech. All those campaigns to “free West Papua” or “get Israel out of Gaza” may become tedious after a while, but the possibility of attaching criminality to them is absurd.

Islamic Council of Victoria claims Muslim groups “have to take up armed struggle”

First the Islamic Council of Victoria refused to condemn the 18-year-old jihadist who nearly killed two police officers in Victoria before he was shot dead:

I’m not going to condemn what he did because I don’t know what he did,” said secretary Ghaith Krayem…

“He went there at the request of the police, this wasn’t something that he planned or plotted.

Krayem blamed Australia instead by insisting it fix ”the root causes of alienation and disaffection of people such as this”.

Now the ICV seems to justify terrorists attacking Israel:

AN Islamic group has condemned the government’s planned terror laws as “a provocation to act”, in a strongly worded statement that appears to legitimise participation in attacks on Israel.

In a submission to the joint standing committee on intelligence and security inquiry into the bills, the Islamic Council of Vic­toria has warned of a “volatile clim­ate” in the Middle East that “continues to produce groups which have to take up armed struggle”.

The submission cites the battle against the Assad regime in Syria and “the struggle against the occupation of Palestinian territory and Palestinian right to self-determin­ation in the face of Israeli aggression” as examples, adding that “many in the Muslim community support such movements and deem them to be legitimate forms of armed struggle”.

The ICV under Krayem has become disturbingly extreme.

So who is this man, seemingly so full of resentment, so seemingly eager to defend even radical Muslims?

The Office of the Legal Services Commissioner reports:

Note that virtually all the people whose trust fund money, insurance payout and property settlement Krayem mishandled had Middle Eastern or Indonesian names, and were most likely Muslim.
