Reader comment on item: Canada's Muslims, Not of One Mind
in response to reader comment: They should be sued and judged by International tribunal for making false ugly accusations

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Nov 21, 2011 at 19:45

Mr Slayhy - seemingly offended at passages relating to the activities his long-dead here, Mohammed, which were recorded in the Koran and hadith, writes:

"If I know who is the source of such claims, I would sue them, for bringing wrong information about Islam"

So, how does one 'sue' the authors of those books exactly.

In any case - the imagined victim in Mr Slayhy's case is an individual who has been dead for over 1400 years - the statute of limitations well and truly applies. You cannot bring a case of slander when the victim is a dead person.

People can and do say anything they want about people long dead - and psychopaths get special attention - Nero Caesar, Hitler, Stalin , Pol Pot and many many others.

In any case Mr Slayhy does not seem to understand that the onus would be on him to prove 100% that all claims were false. He would have to prove for example that Mo was not there so was not responsible for the deaths of 800 Jews - or that - if he was physically present . Mo did everything in his power to stop that slaughter.
