(Reuters) -Â France confirmed on Friday it would allow no street protests against cartoons denigrating Islam’s Prophet Mohammad that were published by a French magazine this week.
A Muhammad Cartoon a Day Â (Daniel Pipes)
When Salman Rushdie mocked Islamic sanctities in 1989 in his magical realist novelÂ The Satanic Verses, Ayatollah Khomeini did something shockingly original: He pronounced a death edict on Rushdie and all those connected to the production of his book. By doing this, Khomeini sought to impose Islamic mores and laws on the West; we don’t insult the prophet, he effectively said, and neither can you.
That started a trend of condemning those in the West deemed anti-Islamic that persists to this day. again and again, when Westerners are perceived as denigrating Muhammad, the Koran, or Islam, Islamists demonstrate, riot and kill.
July 15, 2011: Shown here are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu signing away free speech in Istanbul.Â Such prominence is given to this totalitarian organization.Â
Where are the “good”, “moderate” Muslims protesting the actions of the OIC?
The UN, largely driven by the largest bloc of countries (Muslim countries), continues to vigorously pursue the impostion of sharia law across the world.
Speaking candidly about Islam is blasphemy under Islamic law. Restriction of free speech is a basic tenet of sharia law and what was behind the cancellation of my event in Sugar Land, Texas andÂ Nashville, Tennessee. The war on the truth.
Expect the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) to pursue this non-binding resolution vigorously. Stealth jihad.
The OIC is the new Comintern, dedicated to subversion, infiltration, sabotage and destruction of the Western way of life. OIC agents within the West (which includes many politicians, academics and media hacks) are guilty of treason.
Dutch state taken to UN court of human rights over Wilders
Thursday 17 November 2011
Three Dutch Moroccans have made a complaint against the Netherlands to the UN court of human rights, claiming the Dutch state has not protected them from incitement to hatred instigated by Geert Wilders, Nos television reports.
The three, who are not named in the court filing, say the ‘systematic incitement to hatred and discrimination against Muslims and other migrants’ committed by Wilders has left them feeling ‘discriminated against, humiliated and threatened’.
‘They are of the opinion that Wilders by his continued hate speech has poisoned the social climate in the Netherlands that has become more and more anti-migrant and anti-Muslim,’ the statement says.
incident such asÂ Charlie HebdoÂ will continue happen until the end of time, is destiny. this is what makes history goes on.
Islam is a mercy for the whole of nature, but if them suppressed, Muslims will react violently.

If The Guardian offices get bombed, did they deserve it?!
If a reader, so offended by Crumley’s excuse-making for theocratic nutcases, bombs TIME’s Paris Bureau, would that make Crumley a “victim” of his own obnoxious cowardice?
Â “No one has the right not to be offended. No one has the right to firebomb a newspaper that offends them.”
Over the past decade, that civil war jihad has intensified on the streets of Western cities; Amsterdam, (where the artist Theo van Gogh was murdered in broad daylight for a film which criticized misogynistic Koran verses), NyhamnslÃ¤ge, (the Swedish village where the home of cartoonist Lars Vilks, who drew images of Mohammed, has beenÂ repeatedly attacked), Aarhus (the Danish town where fellow prophet-image-maker Kurt Westergaard had to hide in a “panic room” after an axe-wielding Muslim broke into his home). It has thus been heartening to see this fundamental understanding among writers â€” that, no matter our political disagreements, we are all colleagues in a vitally important element of the free society â€” flower in response toÂ a truly vile little excrescenceÂ by Bruce Crumley, the Paris correspondent for TIME magazine.
On Tuesday morning, the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo were firebombed after it named the Prophet Muhammed its “editor-in-chief” for an upcoming issue. In an article entitled, “Firebombed French Paper Is No Free Speech Martyr,” Crumley taunted the paper’s editors. “Do you still think the price you paid for printing an offensive, shameful, and singularly humor-deficient parody on the logic of ‘because we can’ was so worthwhile?” he asked. Crumley, who would make an excellent propaganda commissar in Uzbekistan or Iran, chided French politicians for “denouncing the arson as an attack on freedom of speech, liberty of expression, and other rights central to French and other Western societies,” which is exactly what it was.

Yale University Press is a well-regarded academic press; it is shocking to many observers to find such a university and such a press surrendering to a kind of ghostly coercion exercised not by violence but by predictions of violence. (More)
That choice is all yours, dear readers. Bruce Crumley Â seems to believe that the suit he wears makes him an adult who is “sensitive” enough to understand Islamic terrorism, and Â if it wasn’t for ourÂ ” childish, Islamophobic, idiotic, divisive, and destructive efforts” Â which force Muslims to firebomb newspapers they don’t like, Â we could all sing kumbaya and pretend we like each other.
Next he’ll be blaming Parisian women for their rapes for not Â “voluntarily” covering up with a burqa. Â Yes folks, that’s where we are headed with dim bulbs like this…… ( thanks to KGS for the reminder….)
What journalist wouldn’t want to be Paris Bureau Chief forÂ TimeÂ magazine, or anything else? Sounds so glamorous. But look closer and the job qualifications — sharia-compliance — are more than a little off-putting, certainly as exemplified by the man with the job, Bruce Crumley, on weighing in onÂ the bombing ofÂ Charlie Hebdo. Poor man. Full-blown, late-stage and terminal Dhimmitude.
1) “Not only are such Islamophobic antics futile and childish, but they also openly beg for the very violent responses from extremists their authors claim to proudly defy …”
2) It’s “hard to have much synpathy for [Charlie Hebdo] after it published another stupid and totally unnecessary edition mocking Islam.”
3) The “issue was certain to enrage hard-core Islamists (and offend average Muslims) with articles and “funny” cartoons featuring the Prophet Mohammedâ€”depictions forbidden in IslamÂ to boot.”
4) “…do youÂ stillÂ think the price you paid for printing an offensive, shameful, and singularly humor-deficient parody on the logic of “because we can” was so worthwhile? If so, good luck with those charcoal drawings your pages will now be featuring.”
5) “If that weren’t enough to offend Muslims sensitive to jokes about their faith, history helped raised hackles further. In 2007,Â Charlie HebdoÂ re-published the infamous (and, let’ face it, just plain lame) Mohamed caricatures initially printed in 2005 by Danish paper Jyllands-Posten.:
6)”Apart from unconvincing claims of exercising free speech in Western nationsÂ where that right no longer needs to be proved,Â it’s unclear what the objectives of the caricatures were other than to offend Muslimsâ€”and provoke hysteria among extremists.”
7)” It’s yet to be seen whether Islamist extremists were behind today’s arson, but both the paper’s current edition, and the rush of politicians to embrace it as the icon of French democracy, raises the possibility of even moderate Muslims thinking “good on you” if and when militants are eventually fingered for the strike.”
8)”So, yeah, the violence inflicted uponÂ Charlie HebdoÂ was outrageous, unacceptable, condemnable, and illegal. But apart from the “illegal” bit,Charlie Hebdo‘s current edition is all of the above, too.”
In my article at Front Page today I wrote this: “The worst aspect of this firebombing is that there are certain to be voices in the West over the next few days â€“ some of them no doubt quite prominent and respected â€“ who will call on Westerners to be more ‘sensitive’ toward Muslims, and to end this unacceptable hurting of Muslim feelings by drawing cartoons of him and making him the honorary editor-in-chief of a comedy magazine.”
