KT McFarland: Islam is finally starting to reform

The Islamic community is finally starting to reform. That’s exactly why we need to label terrorism “Islamic,” exactly contrary to Obama’s misguided policy.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Let’s have a complete overhaul of Islam

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has a message for Western governments – Canada’s included – that think they will curb extremist terrorism by tightening legal limits on expression: You are only making the problem worse.

“I’m a free-speech fundamentalist. There should be no censorship,” says the Somali-born anti-Islam campaigner. “You want things out in the open so you know what you’re fighting against. All these hate-speech laws are counterproductive.

“You’re creating the conditions for getting more lone wolves, because there will be less chatter to follow them. … More and more lone wolves will succeed in their homicidal actions. Instead of censorship, let’s challenge the ideas of the extremists.”

    Nice to see the shout out for free speech.

    Silence, especially government enforced silence in the name of avoiding so called hate speech, means that only the professional Islamists are heard.

    Let them freely declare themselves the enemy of free peoples everywhere, then expel them or kill them trying to do so.

    I’m with Ayaan on free speech but with Raymond Ibrahim on ISIS being the result of Islamic reformation.

    They are reforming alright from Al Qaeda to ISIS. They are getting much worse.

    The hate speech laws are not practiced against Islam — they’re practiced against anyone who criticizes Islam.

    Ayaan is a confused thinker.

    Reform Islam? It’s kinda like thinking less poison in your food is an improvement.

    the only way to defeat islam is to deport those who will go and kill the rest
