For some real "Hate Speech," please turn to the Koran

Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at UCLA

Submitted by Acharya S (United States), May 17, 2007 at 03:02

Will "hate speech" laws that prevent people from speaking against the anti-unbeliever attitude found in the Koran and within fundamentalist Islam also prohibit the very Koranic scriptures by which that attitude is inculcated?

In other words, would not several of the anti-infidel verses in the Koran fall within the definition of "hate speech?"
