Free Speech

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Liz Reynolds (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 11:40

As individuals, we must stand for free speech. It is the backbone of a free and democratic society. Hypocritical hysterical Muslims must not be allowed to prevent or even dampen free speech anywhere in the world. The US State Department must rid itself of Islamists who defend the rights of Muslim clerics and Imams to foment terrorism in the guise of "protests". Americans will tolerate Islam, even fight for a better life for Muslims BUT but we will never submit to the excesses of Islam and the repressive demands of its followers. Time to respond with some force. Let people world wide protest with vigor but when they foment or partake in violence it must not be tolerated and the clerics and Imams together with their violent followers can share the same cell or if they wish, grave.
