It is interesting that Mr.Hussain said the criminal case was being used to squash dissent, there is no free speech in islamist areas !

Reader comment on item: Should We Believe Rashad Hussain?

Mr. Rashad Hussain claim is that the accused was being unfairly targeted to silence him. This is silliness taken to extremes. Two fold, first because there are so many many people who are free to say the same things Sami Al -Arian would say, secondly the islamist do not permit any dissent at all. People who speak their minds in islamic countries disappear, or wind up in prison and tortured. Even in non-muslim countries, people who speak their mind against islamic terror or honor killings face huge problems from islamists. Theo Van Gogh was murdered just for pointing out that islam treats women poorly. The gentleman from Denmark who drew a pic of " prophet " mohammed with a bomb in his turban received huge amounts of hate mail, death threats and with in the last few months, an attempt was made on his live, at his home while his granddaughter was there. Then there is every islamists favorite whipping boy Mr. Rushdie and now the fair hair boy is Geert Wilders, both of whom are greatly hated by islamists for telling the TRUTH !

I said it before, so I'll say it again, the first victim of war is the truth, and yes islamists are at war with all non-muslims.
