I oppose all “hate speech” laws. What constitutes “hate” is a subjective judgment. Whoever gets to decide what is and isn’t “hate speech” essentially controls the public discourse, and there is no longer a free society. What’s more, this case shows that “hate speech” laws are essentially tools to protect Islam and Muslims from criticism; they don’t really apply to any other group or belief system.
“Norway Rules ‘F**k Jews’ Remark by Muslim Rapper is Not Hate Speech,” Sputnik News, January 11, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Norwegian Muslim rapper Kaveh, who was accused of inciting racism for saying “f**k Jews” during a concert last summer, said the remark was taken out of context and misinterpreted, insisting that he is neither a racist nor an anti-Semite.
After reviewing the report filed against 23-year-old rapper Kaveh over allegations of inciting anti-Semitism during a family concert last summer, Norwegian police found no evidence of hate speech and decided to close the case, the Dagen Christian newspaper reported.
Belgium, in its well-intended welcome of newcomers from the Middle East, is now facing a persistent terrorist threat and a “wave of jihadism”, according to a new report published by the Belgian State Security Service (VSSE) on November 30. The main reason for these recent acquisitions, notes the report, is the ongoing Islamic radicalization of inmates in Belgian prisons and the risk of terrorist convicts engaging in terrorist acts once they have served their sentences and are back out on the street.
“In the coming years,” states the report, “the VSSE will be brought to pay particular attention to monitoring detainees convicted of acts of terrorism [after they are] released into freedom”. The authors of the report do not reveal how many radicalized prisoners there are in Belgium; only that in September 2018, there were 130 inmates sentenced for terrorism or “in preventive detention in the context of a terrorism record”.
“Taking into account the persistent recidivist tendency among former terrorism detainees, never mind radicalized common criminals, Belgium will continue to face a latent terror threat for some time to come,” the report lets drop.
The Belgian intelligence services do not appear to consider Islam a factor in generating Islamic terrorism. Instead, the report offers up other explanations why Islamic terrorism is committed internationally: “… Real or perceived discrimination, political instability, poor economic conditions, unemployment, level of development.”
Said Jenkell: “Given the unique and justified sensitivities surrounding the World Trade Center, it came to my mind to propose to remove the sculpture showcasing the flag of Saudi Arabia, or relocate it to a less sensitive location. But there is no way I can do such a thing as the flag of Saudi Arabia is entirely part of the G20 just like any other candy flag of this Candy Nations show.”
City officials should move it. Would a giant sculpture containing Shinto inscriptions be put up at Pearl Harbor? But nothing will be done about this. To move it would be “Islamophobic,” and the de Blasio administration would rather have its teeth pulled out with rusty pliers than do anything that might even give the appearance of “Islamophobia.”
“A Sculpture Celebrating Saudi Arabia Has Been Erected on Ground Zero,” by Davis Richardson, Observer, January 9, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A sculpture celebrating Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit was erected on the World Trade Center grounds last week, a stone’s throw away from the 9/11 memorial.
Last week, new members of the US Congress were sworn in. While there were a few “firsts” to be celebrated, there was one that should not be: the first time that a member of Congress has proudly and openly endorsed the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
Both Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar now brazenly support the BDS movement, although they equivocated on the issue during their campaigns.
The founders of the BDS movement sometimes try to claim that they support a “two-state solution,” but in reality, they seek the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state. Why? Because the boycott movement calls for all Palestinian refugees to be absorbed into Israel, which would mean the end of the Jewish state.
I have no problem with refugees returning to a future Palestinian state. However, the return of the Palestinian refugees to Israel, now numbering in the millions (because the UN has uniquely assigned refugee status to descendants of Palestinians), would mean an end to the Jewish majority, and thus Jewish self-determination in Israel.
As part of its expansionist neo-Ottoman agenda, the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been building mosques and setting up Islamic educational institutions around the world. The mosque that Ankara is currently constructing in Tirana, Albania, will reportedly be the largest of the dozens of its mosques in the Balkans.
Through the Maarif Foundation — established in 2016 by means of a law enacted by the Turkish parliament, which gave it the authority to open schools abroad — a kindergarden, primary-, middle- and high-schools were built in Tirana. In October 2018, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu was the keynote speaker at the inauguration in Albania of the Maarif-run University of New York Tirana.
According to the 2016 Maarif law, the foundation aims to “give and develop services of formal and informal education abroad.” Some of its activities include “giving scholarships to students, opening schools, educational institutions and dormitories and training educators who will work at these institutions.”
Muslims are “the best of people, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong” (Qur’an 3:110), while non-Muslims are “the most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6). So why should Muslims, who are the people on earth who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, ever accept the rule or the laws of the non-Muslims?
“Only hell awaits if non-Muslims lead, Hadi says in piece calling for Islamic supremacy,” by Zurairi AR, Malay Mail, January 8, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 8 — Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has delivered a warning to Muslims to place their trust in Muslim leaders regardless of their wickedness, claiming that believers will end up in hell if led by non-Muslims.
In a lengthy opinion piece titled “Rule of Law: Where is Allah?” today, the PAS president stressed the importance of religion in keeping the law, and the importance for Islam to reign supreme in the governance of country.
“If the one leading is a Muslim, even if he were cruel, at least (others) can become cattle herders,” the Marang MP wrote.
“Not long ago, there was news that in Israel a shopping center for trafficking in women had opened, and the video of [the center’s inauguration] was shown worldwide. The report showed that they sat the women like merchandise in the store windows, with price tags on them.”
Ayatollah Hossein Nouri Hamedani issued this lurid libel in a letter to the contestants in a Quran memorization contest for women. This epitomizes the Iranian regime as a whole: ostentatiously pious in its Islamic observance, and built on hatred and lies.
