Censorship & Federal Ban on Anonymity

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3517960,00.html
YNET News reports on the whining about Geert Wilders’ upcoming film about the demon’s book. Their report contains two crucial quotations.

Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mehdi Safari cited the 1948 Human Rights declaration’s 29th article that individual rights may be limited in the interest of respecting other people’s freedoms and “meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.”


My right of free expression, guaranteed by the first amendment to the United States Constitution, is not in conflict with any other right of any person. There is no right to be sheltered from the truth. Rights & obligations must be reciprocal, they are not one sided.

Muslims refer to us as sons of apes and pigs, the expression derives from the demon’s book. That same book invokes the demon’s curse upon us. Guess what they pray for

“Our Lord! Pour forth on us patience and make us victorious over the disbelieving people.” (2/250)

Article 29.

    (1) Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.

    (2) In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.

    (3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.

Islam arrogates to itself a false right to inflict offense while being shielded from it; they can curse us; we must be prohibited from responding.

“Freedom of speech is not unlimited,” Tehran’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Bozorgmehr Ziaran told a small group of reporters at the Iranian Embassy. The film, he added, “would just breed violence.” Wilders, Ziaran said, “is not a peacemaker, Mr. Wilders is a warmonger.”


Does anyone believe that Wilders will, in his film, incite violence? Did the Danish cartoons incite Danes to assault Muslims? Who was it that shot and knifed Priests and Nuns, who burned churches and embassies? Why did the violence follow Juma prayers? Was there no connection between the kutbah and the violence? Were Kuffar marching in the thousands, chanting curses and swearing vengance? Who was?


Reliance of the Traveler lists acts tantamount to apostasy, which carries a death penalty. [Book O8.7]
-4-to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);
-5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);
-6- to be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;
-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it

-16- to revile the religion of Islam;
-17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;
-18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;
-19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;
-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )

You know already, that they have no regard for our lives or property, having declared open season on us. Are you aware of the fact, that on December 24, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly resolved to ban criticism of Islam?

Now a new domestic threat to our liberty & privacy has appeared. WTVQ in Kentucky reports that their M.C. is seeking to outlaw anonymous posting on the web. Those of us who risk fatwa by exposing the evil doctrines of Moe’s murder cult would be forced to reveal our full names and physical addresses so that the assassins could find us easily.

From WTVQ:

Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal.


Couch’s bill would require anyone contributing to a web site to file their real name, physical address and email address with the site. Your full name would be displayed with your comments.

Fines for anonymous posting would be $500 for the first offense; $1000 for subsequent offenses. The excuse for the bill: to reduce on line bullying.

Couch’s bill would be a foot in the door, the first step toward censorship. Can attempts to regulate content be far behind?
