It in some ways has a slightly better chance than many other muslim countries - it was a bigtime Roman colony and they know through their history that being under the influence of a European power while having drawbacks - also has a lot if advantages.
Plus they have the actual geographic proximity to Europe and no doubt get European media.
The most realistic hope you can have is that enough of the younger ones may have already had a gutful of Islamic BS and realise there are better ways of doing things and relating to common garden variety Infidels. But then, even more so of course, Libyan migrants of all ages already in Paris, Rotterdam, Berlin, London, Brussels etc. - how many of these still secretly wish for sharia and their rightful positions at the top of their newly adopted societies?

"I'd be heartbroken to read all these patronizing comments again about the futility of doing the right thing for the right reasons.I guess, we all we see shortly."

You'd only be heartbroken if you were attached to a particular outcome. Another point you've just inadvertently made - why should we be doing the 'right thing' at all? Isn't it Islam's turn to do some giving?

"Then, why stop with a Fosters. Should'nt a public burning of the Quran there fall also under Free Speech?"

You answer the question nicely further along in your post: "You'd experience a hailstorm of legal, if not social unrest and battles.Putting a Fosters on a makeshift shrine - I could claim I was following my appreciation for the god Bacchus. Burning a Koran in public could be seen by some muslims as if I actually had an issue with their cults beliefs. They might even think that I'd be so ignorantr that I
would think that sex with a nine year old girl was sick - or so close-minded that I dismiss all possibility of Buraks . But I certainly have the right to burn one in my own home. And post it online.

"In Germany just a few weeks ago, some muslim org started to hand out free Qurans to the people on public places."
Yes I pointed out what are the salafists going to do when 95% + of die Gut Deutsch Folk throw them straight into the trash? A massive nationwide fatwa against Germany? "Hey, but you gave US the trash in the first place - we're not beholden to any of your laws regarding its disposal". "Be silent while you can, Infidel - before you scream in the flames of hellfire for eternity for such blasphemy'.

"I was so close to seeking out one of those places and burn one just to create a precedent for Free Speech in the other direction."

But the kiddies will throw a tantrum. And burning isn't so ecologically sound if the heat isn't put to good use. Here, try this: http://www.siotw.org/modules/burnaquran/

"But, in conclusion, no western nation seems to be at present truly willing to even treat Islam equal to other cults and religions.They get special, preferred treatment, even, if they shamelessly provoque conflict."
It's like a mafia really , it's a lot to do with fear but also on the natural civility of people in Western society to give people a 'fair go' . But it is not helped by our idiotic cultural suicide laws which place few limits on how far people with evil intentions can go to sabotage our way of life - under the guise of religious freedom and multiculturalism. The PC crowd don't understand that this 'cultural enrichment' is really 'cultural erosion'. They have no consideration for our beliefs or culture - and many have no concern for human life. And some of course not even their own lives. And that 5th column now lives in our societies - ready to intimidate any who oppose it.

"How can it be possible for muslims of the Saudi kind (Salafists, if I am right)todistribute their books without any repercussions, while trying the same thing in Ryadh you'd likely faced incarceration?

Exactly.

"Frack Fosters, how about suing the league for prayer rooms for Catholics? Why should they get something, which would be impossible for the traditional churches?"
Actually there was a big outcry - the AFL made the point that the prayer rooms are not for exclusive Muslim use - though in practice - my guess is that they will be.Unless I can convince lots of AFL fanatics to come and celbrate with me the joys of Bacchus. Come to think of it - a lot of them would.

"Man, I'm almost angry now for not having made the trip to Germany ..."
I can't imagine too many people there WON'T be burning and trashing them, especially in Munich.

...
Amen!
