Reader comment on item: The West Stands Up for Its Customs
in response to reader comment: Behead (or kill) those who insult Islam!

Submitted by William Hill (United States), Jul 14, 2008 at 14:32

Behead those who insult islam. Definately right of free speech or is it a call to arms, hate violence and murder commited on anyone who doesn't believe the way the islamist do? It's an incitement to violence and in no way relates to what we have called free speech, just like free speech covers what could be considered insults to other parties. if those statements made about someone aren't true they are not covered under free speech.

In the US statements made, say for instance about saudi's financing terrorist cells for violence against innocent civilians in Israel, the US or on any location around the world, are protected when the facts listed as evidence for these claims that so and so is helping to fund violence are investigatable and can be found to be literally TRUE!

My calling for neighbors to kill the landlord because he raised the monthly rent from $485 to $500 is not protected. I really as should all others noticing these inciteful statement made by muslims, adherents to islam wonder why it is this supposed religion is so damn touchy about anything negative coming out about the ideology; do they have something to fear, is their allah unable to watch out for himself, could mohamed have truly been a thief, murderer and child molester? Making those statements in the US would be protected since they are all easily proven, by only a simple reading of mohamed's own words and what they profess are the literal words of their allah as true, therefore, true and protected under the first amendment.
