American Bloggers Beware! (part 2)
19 September 2013
Since I wrote American Bloggers Beware! (part 1) about a month and a half ago, Islamic supremacists around the world have been working hard to persecute and prosecute bloggers who dare commit the "sin" of criticizing Islam. I ran across most of these reports at Robert Spencer's at Jihad Watch Web site.
Less than two weeks ago there was an article entitled Bangladesh court indicts four bloggers for criticizing Islam. Here are a few excerpts:
Spencer comments: "This is the kind of law that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) wants to impose on the U.S."
A court in the Bangladesh capital indicted four bloggers Sunday [8 September 2013] for their allegedly inflammatory writings about Islam and its Prophet Muhammad. If convicted, the bloggers, who pleaded not guilty, could face up to 14 years in jail. The accused are currently free on bail after spending up to three months in jail. New York-based Human Rights Watch earlier condemned the arrests, while the Islamist group Hefazat-e-Islam has vigorously campaigned for the bloggers to be prosecuted.
Speaking of the OIC, today there was an article entitled Organization of Islamic Cooperation wants permanent seat on UN Security Council. Here are a few excerpts:
Spencer comments: "If they get this, they will step up their war on the freedom of speech and efforts to get the West to criminalize criticism of Islam."Another article posted today was Denmark: Ex-Muslim convicted of "racism" for noting that Muslim men justify abusing women by referring to Islamic texts. Here are a few excerpts:
OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said the 57-member organization already made up the biggest voting bloc at the U.N., and it was time it acquired "a new position. During the first reconsideration of the reform in the U.N., I think there should be a seat for OIC in the Security Council," Mr. Ihsanoglu said. "If you look to the structure of the Security Council of today, you have the P5 [permanent five] and there are representatives of different civilizations, different cultures, political powers ... but you won't find representative of more than 1.6 billion people of the Muslim world."
Today was a really bad day for anti-Islamic bloggers, because there was yet another article on Jihad Watch, this time about the author, Robert Spencer, himself. The gentle and loving title is "Robert Spencer must be shot head." Here are a few excerpts:
Spencer comments: "It's official: the truth is now 'racism.' Firoozeh Bazrafkan is an Iranian ex-Muslim who speaks from her own experience. She 'argues that she was not accusing all Muslim men of using Islamic codes to justify horrific acts against women, only that violence against women and children was often excused by citing Islam.' Do Muslim men refer to Islam to justify beating women? Well, recently Islamic states rejected as un-Islamic a UN Human Rights Council resolution condemning violence against women."
A Danish-Iranian artist was found guilty of racism by the Western High Court on Monday [16 September 2013] for statements she made about Muslim men, handing her a 5,000 kroner fine, or five days in prison. "The court argued that what I wrote about Muslim men was condescending and a generalisation," Bazrafkan told The Copenhagen Post. "But that's unfair, because there are many Islamic codes that are being used by Islamic men to justify their actions against women and children." Bazrafkan said she would rather spend the time in prison than pay the fine, and that she was prepared to take the case to the Supreme Court.
Why did Mr. Spencer receive this death threat? Because he dared to express his opinion that Allah is not God, but Satan masquerading as an angel of light (see 2 Corinthians 11:14). This is the very same insight which I have expressed again and again in a number of my articles:
Spencer comments: "No one will take any particular notice of this call for someone to shoot me, although if the roles were reversed, there would be international headlines — as when Islamic supremacist leader Daisy Khan said she got a death threat, and it was all over the news. I've gotten hundreds, and the authorities yawn.
But what about little old me? Surely I'm insignificant enough to be able to fly under the radar and not attract any undesirable attention? Maybe I am — or maybe not. There will probably come a day in the not-too-distant future when NOBODY will be able to fly under the radar anymore. Am I ready to face the consequences for speaking out against the evils of Islam? Am I willing to endure the constant death threats that Mr. Spencer receives for merely speaking the truth about Islam?Last, but not least, this article was posted yesterday on Pamela Geller's Atlas Shrugs Web site — Sharia in America: Florida Man Job in Jeopardy For 911 Facebook Post About Islam. Here are a few excerpts:
And that brings us to the end of my second round of reporting on the increase of Islamofascism in the blogosphere. I have no doubt that it's only the tip of the Islamic-supremacist iceberg! Our Islamic future rushes to embrace us!
This is how your first amendment rights are being obliterated. Here is a man, John Jamason, a patriot, who posted a message on our national day of grief, September 11. And because of that, his job is in jeopardy. His message was true (and even if it wasn't, this is wrong.......) Oh, the irony. Twelve years after 911, Islamic law (blasphemy) is quickly becoming the law of the land. This is chilling.
Palm Beach County Public Affairs staffer John Jamason is being investigated for a Facebook post about Islam. There is every chance that he could be disciplined for making a "critical" statement about Islam on 9/11. Where is the man's right to free speech? Apparently free speech is a secondary issue when one of Florida's leading Muslim groups is offended.
On 9/11.2013, Jamason wrote on his Facebook page, "Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don't practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate."
John Jamason is precisely correct. All Islam is radical. The Quran preaches hate. Everything he said is 100 percent truth and nothing that everyone truly aware with the nature of Islam has not said on social media and posted over and over again. This is free speech. But will speaking out cost Jamason his job?
Jamason said, "I don't think I owe anybody an apology, I didn't say anything offensive." He didn't do or say anything offensive. But when it comes to Islam, there is nothing too small or insignificant that cannot be deemed "offensive."
