Muslims across Word Protest against anti-Islam film by Coptic Christian in USA: Hypocracy & Double Standards, Where is Freedom of speech for laws against Holocaust Denial in 17 European/ Western Countries?


 Rebuttal to Anti Islam film “Innocence of Muslims”:  http://lnkd.in/Cz4uyq


On the pretext of freedom of speech USA and West allows the extremists to insult Islam, Quran and Prophet Muhammad [pbuh]. They are well aware that this will hurt the feelings of 1.5 billion Muslims, the world over who can not bear any non sense on the pretext of freedom of speech. On the other side In order to please just 13.3 million Jews Holocaust denial is explicitly or implicitly illegal in 17 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Switzerland.



Why can't they care for sentiments of 1.5 billion Muslims? Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution is not absolute; the Supreme Court of the United States has recognized several categories of speech that are excluded from the freedom of speech, and it has recognized that governments may enact reasonable time, place, or manner restrictions on speech. There are exceptions to these general protections, including the Miller test for obscenity, child pornography laws, speech that incites imminent lawless action, protection from imminent or potential violence against particular persons (restrictions on fighting words), or the use of untruths to harm others (slander). US ambassador and 3 people have died in Libyan protest, many more Muslims will die in the protests by police trying to control protesters in Muslim countries. [remember Danish caricature controversy, Salmon Rushdi's blasphemous book]. 

One is inclined to conclude that such actions are preplanned to create hatred and violence, help the religious extremists for strong justification for violence. 
The European Union's Framework decision on Racism and Xenophobia states that denying or grossly trivializing "crimes of genocide" should be made "punishable in all EU Member States". Slovakia criminalized denial of fascist crimes in general in late 2001; in May 2005, the term "Holocaust" was explicitly adopted by the penal code and in 2009, it became illegal to deny any act regarded by an international criminal court as genocide. The Parliament of Hungary adopted the most recent legislation, which declared denial or trivialization of the Holocaust a crime punishable by up to three years imprisonment, in February 2010.
A number of deniers have been prosecuted under various countries' denial laws. French literature professor Robert Faurisson, for example, was convicted and punished under the Gayssot Act in 1990. Some historians oppose such laws, among them Vidal-Naquet, an outspoken critic of Faurisson, on the grounds that denial legislation imposes "historical truth as legal truth." Other academics favor criminalization. Holocaust denial, they contend, is "the worst form of racism and its most respectable version because it pretends to be a research." In the Belgian Senate the Minister of Justice Laurette Onkelinx compared laws criminalizing Holocaust denial with those condemning incitement to ethnic or racial hatred in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
What should be done?
  • This appears to conspiracy to destabilise the newly established Islamic governments in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt etc and provided pretext for US /Western interference. Muslims should exercise restraints, protests should remain non violent, the extremists should not be allowed to exploit the situation in their favour. US has made ingress to these extremists, they are manipulated to act as US tool unwittingly acting as fools.  
  • The Muslim governments should launch official protests to US government and UNO, the OIC should be activated to play its role. They will not do it because most of them are US puppets, so only peaceful protests will force them.
  • Muslims demand from UN,  USA & West to make laws to respect the sentiments of 1.5 billion Muslims, as done for Jews on Holocaust Denial  & Antisemitism. 
  • If the US/West does not change their hostile attitude towards Muslims, then in the long term Muslims should consider use of economic power to pressurise USA and West i.e. boycott of some products/ restrict trade, use of alternate means instead of US $ in trade. Gradual withdrawal of money from US/Western banks. This cannot be expected from present rulers which should be gradually replaced through peaceful democratic protests / process. 
Remember:  
  • "LET NOT the believers take those who deny the truth for their allies in preference to the believers - since he who does this cuts himself off from God in everything - unless it be to protect yourselves against them in this way. But God warns you to beware of Him: for with God is all journeys' end.[Quran;3:28] 
  • [But] it may well be that God will bring about [mutual] affection between you [O believers] and some of those whom you [now] face as enemies: for, God is all-powerful - and God is much-forgiving, a dispenser of grace. As for such [of the unbelievers] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, God does not forbid you to show them kindness and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, God loves those who act equitably. God only forbids you to turn in friendship towards such as fight against you because of [your] faith, and drive you forth from your homelands, or aid [others] in driving you forth: and as for those [from among you] who turn towards them in friendship; it is they, they who are truly wrongdoers! [Quran;60:7-8]

    Our Captured, Wounded Hearts: Arundhati Roy On Balakot, Kashmir And India

    With his reckless “pre-emptive” airstrike on Balakot in Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inadvertently undone what previous Indian governments almost miraculously, succeeded in doing for decades. Since 1947 the Indian Government has bristled at any suggestion that the conflict in Kashmir could be resolved by international arbitration, insisting that it is an “internal matter.” By goading Pakistan into a counter-strike, and so making India and Pakistan the only two nuclear powers in history to have bombed each other, Modi has internationalised the Kashmir dispute. He has demonstrated to the world that Kashmir is potentially the most dangerous place on earth, the flash-point for nuclear war. Every person, country, and organisation that worries about the prospect of nuclear war has the right to intervene and do everything in its power to prevent it.  Keep reading  >>>>

    Kashmir Jihad - Analysis & Options

    PDF: http://bit.ly/2k0Vqpm

    Kashmir is an incomplete agenda of partition of India. Since 1947, India and Pakistan have fought three wars on this issue. According to UN resolutions, Kashmiris have to decide their accession to Pakistan or India through impartial plebiscite, which could not take place due to Indian reluctance. Recently, India revoked Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted special autonomous status to Kashmir, it was done to unilaterally integrate occupied Kashmir. This is a violation of the UN resolutions and the Simla bilateral agreement, which demands to maintain status quo until the final settlement. The US and world powers are emphasizing that Kashmir should be resolved bilaterally, though India has refused to hold talks with Pakistan. In the present scenario, while India has turned Kashmir into the largest prison of 9 million people, denying basic human rights and oppressing the Kashmiris' who want freedom from India, Pakistan cannot watch as a silent spec…
