“Publish stuff we don’t like, and we’ll kill you”-“Top Syrian cleric says media can cause war” — when they publish stuff that offends Muslims.
* What should really worry us is why this PoS gets to speak in the EU parliament!
The Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmed Badreddin Hassun delivers a speech during a plenary session…
STRASBOURG (AFP) – Syria’s top Sunni Muslim cleric urged the media Tuesday to use caution when reporting on religion, saying that the choice and timing of a report can cause a war.
* Bear in mind too that in the mind of belligerent Islam, “media” = “Jews”.
“A simple piece of information can spark a war. If a man dies because of information that you have made public, his death will be on your conscience,” Shiekh Ahmed Badreddin Hassun told reporters at the European Parliament.
His remarks came in response to questions about the 2005 crisis when satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed first published in Denmark caused an uproar in the Muslim world, resulting in protests and several deaths.
The Grand Mufti expressed regret over what he said was the “instrumentalisation of this dossier, which arose from a simple, isolated case.”
“Some television stations chose Friday, one hour before prayers” to broadcast the story, he said, adding that “there are media who want to create a conflict” between the West and the Muslim world.
The Koran does not explicitly ban images of the Prophet Mohammed, but attempts to capture his image, in drawings in this instance, are seen as an insult.
Earlier, in a speech to the assembly which was part of the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, the Grand Mufti voiced confidence that the world would not soon see a holy war.
“I am confident. I don’t think there will be a holy war. Wars are never holy. Peace, though, is holy,” he said.
* Indeed: the jihad is very unholy. But the way these EUro dhimmi’s are prostrating themselves before Muhammad worshiping headbangers like this mufti is an insult to our forefathers who fought to keep us free from the Muhammedan nightmare
The Grand Mufti denied there is such a thing as “Holy war”, telling the gathered MEPs that there is only “Holy Peace”. However, completely missing from the EU’s own reporting was the warning Dr. Hassoun has for the Netherlands (NL):
Should it come to riots, bloodshed and violence after broadcating the Quran movie by PVV-leader Geert Wilders, then Wilders will be responsible.
This was said by the Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun, Tuesday in teh European Parliament, where he gave a speech at the invitation of the fraction presidents.
If Wilders tears up or burn a Quran in his film ‘this will simply mean he is inciting wars and bloodshed. And he will be responsible’, according to te Grand Mufti.
Al Hassoun thinks it is ‘the responsibility of the Dutch people to stop Wilders’.
Which comes down to a case of blackmail against the Netherlands, in direct contradiction to the ‘peaceful’ nature of the Grand Mufti’s speech as reported by the EP’s own site, doesn’t?
Why was this primitive loudmouth allowed to address the EP in the first place? And why wasn’t he taken to task anout the persecution of Christians and others of a faith not islam in Syria and the ME at large? It speaks volumes about the EUnions dedication to freedom (none) that the entire parliament enthusiatically applauded a speaker that made some not very veiled threats against one of the EU member states, one of the founding states, even. No protests, just a gushing report on the speech, glossing over the less refined passages in it. Mustn’t offend the Mufti, you see.
Appeasement, that is what matters.
Can we leave yet?
