Please stop using the "Freedom of Speech" excuse to justify your hatered to Islam. Read the following facts and explain to me what did you do about it:

- British historian David Irving has been jailed in Austria for 3 years for making a speech about the Holocaust because it offendes the Jews.

PARIS (AFP) — A French senior civil servant has been sacked for publishing a violent anti-Israeli diatribe on a web site, the interior ministry said.

Bruno Guigue, deputy prefect of the southwestern town of Saintes, wrote in an online column this month that Israel was "the only state where snipers shoot down little girls outside their school gates."

The author of several books on the Israli-Palestinian conflict, Guigue wrote of the "Israeli jails where -- thanks to religious law -- they stop torturing on the Sabbath."

Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie dismissed the official after learning of the column on Wednesday, the ministry said.
