The European Court of Human Rights ruled that criticism of Muhammad constitutes incitement to hatred — meaning that in Europe, criticizing Muhammad is no longer protected free speech.
What the court has actually done, however, is rule out the possibility of any debate in which a range of various experts and members of the public could take part. Now, it seems, the only views that will be respected in the public forum are those of devout Muslims.
A three- and four-year-old brother and sister scuttle around together on a patch of grass. At first glance they are a pair of happy children playing. But on closer observation, their skin is dry and their hair unwashed. Their clothes are dirty. The boy has a large wound on his forehead reaching to the side of his left eye and the girl has a swollen sore on her right cheek.
The Kurdish siblings are among hundreds of refugees sleeping rough in a woods in northern France in makeshift camps controlled by smugglers. Along with their parents, they are among a growing number of families enduring the cold temperatures so they can leap into the back of lorries or set sail in small boats in attempt to cross to Britain.
Refugees? How many countries have they passed through? Why Britain?
“Happy Birthday, Muhammad,” the New York Times proclaimed happily last Tuesday in a propaganda piece by Haroon Moghul, the author of a book confidently entitled How to Be a Muslim. I’d say it was a new low for the Times if the Gray Lady didn’t keep stooping lower every day.
For nearly 200 years, headgear has been prohibited within the House chamber of the U.S. Capitol. The Democrats — who will be in the majority in January — have proposed to allow religious headwear — hijab. The change was presented by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who is the likely Speaker of the House of the incoming Congress, Incoming Rules Chairman Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), and Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). Born in Somalia, Omar is one of two Muslim female Democrats who were elected last week.
As awareness of the dangerous globalist agenda to subvert freedom and self-government grows across the Western world, totalitarians within the European Union are in such a panic that they are now openly demanding censorship of the Internet, the press, and free speech. They are also dictating to national governments that organizations they disagree with must be totally banned. And they called for governments and companies to actively propagandize the public. Critics of homosexuality, gender confusion, Islam, open borders, and more are all in the EU’s crosshairs. And ironically, the EU bigwigs are making all these totalitarian and intolerant demands in the name of “democracy” and “tolerance.” Welcome to the Orwellian world of globalist EU double speak.
Britain has rejected an appeal for asylum from Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian acquitted of blasphemy last week who is under the threat of death from Islamic leaders who struck a deal with her government to block her exit.
The new head of the CPS has been accused of adopting “deeply unhelpful” language about terrorists after spending 90 minutes with CAGE, the group that described ISIS executioner Jihadi John as “a beautiful young man”.
Freiburg is a city that has been rocked by migrant related incidents. On 14 October this year, a teen girl was raped by seven Syrians and two years ago teenager Maria Ladenburger was raped and murdered by an Afghan migrant.
Mohammed Hanif, the author of this disgraceful op-ed published Friday in the New York Times, is a Pakistani novelist, and so it is perhaps understandable that he may wish to observe Islamic blasphemy laws, but why is the New York Times, which is supposedly a journalistic outlet in a nation that upholds the freedom of speech, validating his doing so?
