Freedom of speech is the right to offend

Reader comment on item: Stealth Islamist: Khaled Abou El Fadl

Submitted by Putupwithit (Canada), Oct 3, 2008 at 23:05

Khaled Abou El Fadl is an Islamic supremacist who believes Islam takes a place above all societies, judges them by Mohammed's standards and then pronounces the sentence. There is no freedom of speech in Islam.

The Islamist cannot "get" the reason for freedom of speech, because when you have a caliph, no political consultation is needed. The caliph imposes sharia, lines his own pockets and those of his friends and then gets assassinated by people whose toes he stepped on. Look at Islamic history. It is a river of blood. This is the Islamic political system that Khaled Abou El Fadl wants to implement in America, but unlike his Al Qaeda brothers, he is not in a hurry. It will occur in Allah's time.

Islamists are totally miffed by freedom of speech. The Islamic world has never had it. Why would any one want to criticize the perfect religion, the perfect book or the perfect prophet. The cartoon-freak-out Moslems never did understand Kurt Westergaard's motive: To ridicule the suicide bombers who use Mohammed as a role model to kill innocent people.

They are unable to see themselves as the narcissists in the mirror. The Islamists are puffed up with their own self-importance and the West is used to deflating people like that. The West is not going to give in. Look at this website. There are new ones every day. Many ex-Moslems are anonymously declaring exactly what drove them from this information-control and mind-control ...cult.

There are no "sacred cows" in the West. Get used to it, or go back to berserkistan.
