to Lana: sweeping assumptions are an attempt to stifle free speech

in response to reader comment: words of ignorance

Lana,

withll due respect, I think that you are jumping in at the deep end with your criticism of Stephen's comments. Whilst I will have nothing to do with the bigots at the Chick organization, I see no need for your own sweeping assumptions that Stephen was referring to all Muslims. He has a valid point about the fact that the Muslims on a world wide basis have been silent with regard to demonstrating for peace. Over the years there have been a handful of such demonstrations.

I would say that the majority of the demonstrations that have witnessed here in Australia for example have been in support of the Jihadists. They have not taken to the streets to condemn those who are committing acts of terror. The reason for this situation is found in the Satanic verses of the Koran.

You sound to me like you belong to the typical bleeding heart crowd who attempt to stifle the free thoughts of others because of the very prejudices and intolerance that you possess.

There is a difference between the Muslims who desire to know and do the will of God in a peacefu way, and the Jihadi-Islamofacist who demands that the world converts to the perversion known as Islam.

Why would civilized people want to associate with the monkeys and dogs from Palestine or Iran?
