asked the Baha’is to
see how Muslims insult their faith and persecute them? Why Aljazeera does not protest when Ahmadinejad, the president of
says he will stop
? Islam does not respect any other belief. This claim is
hypocritical and a patent lie.
Before we can establish democracy in any country we
must lay its foundation. First we have to fight the censorship of thought.
You can’t have democracy without freedom of speech. Freedom of speech
means freedom to criticize any belief. Beliefs do
not have to be protected. It’s the right to criticize them that has to
be protected. Beliefs must be scrutinized and if found wanting
discarded. True beliefs don't need protection and fallacious beliefs don't
have to be protected.
How can you respect the faith of someone who believes
it is his God given duty to kill you because your faith is not
"right"? Should you respect the belief of one who thinks God has
rendered your wife and property halal to him? The very notion of
respecting beliefs is absurd. Belief means acceptance of a postulate as
true without evidence. Why should such a fallacy be respected?
Muslims threaten the Media when a journalist or a
broadcaster casts doubt on the “peacefulness” of Islam. They demand
apologies and resignation. Often they get what want and the
“offending” journalists are forced to apologize or lose their jobs.
Sadly the public, like sheep, watches this violation of rights and does
not intervene or protest. What they don't know is that this is an attack
on THEIR freedom.
Say NO to the
appeasers and the useful idiots
We are destroying our own democracy by our own hands.
Our own misguided politicians are hard at work chipping away our
democracy. It is regrettable, to put it mildly, that the Council of Europe
(CoE) should criticize the Danish Government for its refusal to impose a
ban on freedom of speech in Demark in order to appease the Muslims. They
has a tradition for tolerance and respect for others. Notwithstanding this
tradition, a strong seam of intolerance has developed in Danish society,
particularly towards immigrants and also Muslims.”
Shouldn't the CoE demand tolerance from Muslims and
condemn them for bullying
to violate the freedom of speech?
The CoE has become so dhimmi (servile to Muslims)
that they even condemned
for prosecuting Muslims who incite hate. That is unbelievable!
This council even organized a seminar to condemn the
criticism of Islam and equated
it to anti-Semitism. In another place they called criticism of Islam
“islamophobia” and said it is a “dangerous
How can they be more wrong? Semites are people; Islam
is a belief system. This is comparing apples to oranges. Shouldn't people
in such high positions be intelligent enough to know the difference
between a race and a creed?
People have to
be protected, not beliefs.
You can’t change your race and ethnicity but you
can change your belief. Destructive beliefs that preach hate and
discrimination must not be protected. They must be criticized and banned.
Prohibiting the criticism of such beliefs, or any belief, is insane! Are
the Christians or the Jews demanding the ban on criticism of Christianity
and Judaism? Has anyone suggested that the books of Bertrand Russell or
Thomas Paine who were critical of Judeo- Christianity be banned? The
believers of no other religion demand apologies or threaten to boycott you
or kill you if you slight their religion. Why should the word apologize to
Muslims when it is they who have to explain the
violence and the hate that is in their holy book and the crimes
committed by their prophet and apologize?
Before taking democracy to Islamic countries, let us
save our own democracy at home. Our own democracy is under attack. We are
afraid to talk in our own “democratic countries”.
Most Media are scared to publish articles critical of Islam. Those
who do publish them deserve praise. If you speak the truth, the way you
see it, you can loose our job like Michael
Graham or the editor Jacques
. Or you’ll be forced to apologize like Paul
Harvey and Lowell
Greene, face lawsuits like Oriana
Fallaci, or be stabbed to death like Theo
Van Gogh. Where is our democracy? Where is our freedom of speech?
Why spend so much money and sacrifice the lives of
our young men and women to bring democracy to a people who have no
appreciation for it and are not grateful of our sacrifices? "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs.”
Get rid of those despots who threaten our world and
let the Muslims sort their own problems. They must learn democracy on
their own. Often democracies are born out of bloodshed. If that is the
rout they want to take, let them. We have a model of democracy that works
and they are welcome to use if they want, and yes it was born out of
bloodshed too. But if they want to have it their way, who are we to stop
them? We must protect our own freedom, which is in grave danger.
Today, we must stand by
that is hurting
because of the boycotts imposed on it by the Muslims. Stop feeding the
Pedestrians who bite your hand a billion dollars a year. Use that money to
and the other victims of Islamic bullishness. Say no to Islamofascism and
defend our own freedom of speech and our democracy.
