Supporting Free Speech Proves Danish Intolerance - Is This Goodbye Europe Hello Eurabia???Topics: Eurabia
A report on Denmark released yesterday by the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance has got Egyptian Sandmonkey banging his head in disbelief...
A commenter at ESM offers a rational perspective: "Muslim clerics engage in a months-long campaign involving false statements and made-up cartoons in order to incite riots, and the recommendation by the ECRI to the Danish government is to penalize Danish citizens for hate speech against Muslims?" ... "Somebody please tell me this report is a parody. It would be funny as a parody".
Unfortunately, the report is no parody, and is what one writer would refer to as the begining of the fall of Europe:
(...) This is the beginning of the fall of Europe. Anti-Islamism is not the same as anti-Semitism. Islam is a belief system, Semites are a race. We can't equate a race to a doctrine.In the light of comments such as these, and an ESM decision so devastating to the freedom of speech and a gift to Islamofascism, one could say with little danger of being very far off base, that Europe has indeed crossed the line of reason and has entered into the realm of the end of Europe as we know it - it is undoubtedly becoming what Bat Ye'or calls Eurabia
(...) Prohibiting criticism of Islam is like prohibiting criticism of Judaism or Christianity. No one in his right mind would suggest criticism of these religions should be banned. The very fact that these religions have reformed and have adapted to modern times is because they were criticized. Only during the inquisition, criticism of Christianity was against the law. Are we trying to introduce Islamic inquisition to appease Muslims? Are we trying to institute the blasphemy law that is practiced in Saudi Arabia , Pakistan and Iran to make Muslims happy? This is insane!
(...) Today May 25, 2005 an Italian judge, Armando Grasso, in city of Bergamo, ordered the best-selling writer and journalist Oriana Fallaci to stand trial in her native Italy on charges she defamed Islam in her book "La Forza della Ragione" (The Force of Reason)
(...) In it, Ms Fallaci. argues that Europe is turning into "an Islamic province, an Islamic colony" and that "to believe that a good Islam and a bad Islam exist goes against all reason".
(...) Fallaci wrote that terrorists had killed 6,000 people over the past 20 years in the name of the Quran and said the Islamic faith "sows hatred in the place of love and slavery in the place of freedom." Fallaci spoke the truth. These are facts, not her opinion.
