freedom of speech: the geert wilders case

feb 18th, 2009

and also the attack on subramaniam swamy raise the following question that i quote from the article:

"And if the difference in these cases is that mockery of Islam has the tendency to lead to riots, death threats and murder, should committed Christians now seek a kind of parity with Islamists by resorting to violent tactics to express their sense of religious injury?"

just substitute 'hindu' for 'christian' above.

Symptoms of Offended Muslim Syndrome (OMS)

Irritability, agitation, anxiety at the sight of women who are not fully covered

Prolonged rage or unexplained killing sprees

Significant changes in immigration patterns

Brooding about the past glory of the Caliphate

Decreased effectiveness and minimal work productivity

Difficulty in understanding new information without a trial lawyer

Feelings of despair or hopelessness about the existence of Israel

Recurring thoughts of death to the infidels

This is very strange and surprising

On Obama's takeover

As for current policies, I think Obama looks more aggressive and violent than Bush. The first acts under his administration were attacks on Afghanistan and in Pakistan, both of which killed many civilians, building up support for the Taliban [Images]. He wants to extend the military side of the war. There is an Afghan peace movement, which is calling for a reduction or an end of terror. President Karzai has pleaded with the United States not to carry out attacks that will hit civilians and, in fact, has demanded a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign forces, American forces, but that's just totally disregarded and the opportunities for a peaceful settlement are just ignored.

And of course newspapers are all accolades (http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/Raj-Thackeray-finds-support-in-Mumbais-Muslims/387325/) for this Anti-North Indian racist who should be charged with sedition.

Compare these attention hungry protests with none when it comes to Hindu Rights and cases like this

Chomsky is truly an idiot and if you exchange emails with him, you will realize that yourself. As for Rediff, their editors suffer from inferiority complex and believe that anyone with White skin has to be an expert. Do you think Rediff will ever present an Indian as an expert on Western culture?
