Muslim groups want to legally censure mocking of Islam

No fucking surprise here. Same old shit.

A Swedish newspaper has printed a blasphemous cartoon of that 7th century Arab psychopath that started the wondrous religion of Islam.

Sweden's government said it regretted any hurt but could not apologise as it was not responsible for the drawing and could not prevent its publication.

An umbrella body representing 57 Muslim nations, the Organisation of Islamic Conference, condemned the latest cartoon and urged the Swedish government to punish those responsible.

They can condemn it without requesting that we Westerners change our laws to suit their ancient blasphemy taboos. THIS is what I mean by creeping Muslim demands.

At the liberal/left/asian blog Pickled Politics I recently commented

I don’t think a “paranoia” about creeping Muslim demands is completely unfounded, after self declared Muslims blew up 52 innocents, then more self declared muslims trying to follow in their footsteps, after British muslims have gone on to the streets of london saying behead those who insult islam, after islamic nhs workers try to detonate a nightclub in london, after they pathetically tried to blow up glasgow airport, after the numerous thwarted attacked including the “dancing slags” trial, I don’t think that the paranoia on the right is quite as illogical as the paranoia of many on the left.

What I should have explained it's not the terrorists so much, it's really the Muslim organisations, such as the Organisation of Islamic Conference which composes of 57 Muslim groups that actually seek to change the law, or put another way, creeping Muslim demands. If Muslims don't want to be spoken for by these massive umbrella groups of Muslim organisations then surely there would be larger counter groups?

Of course by saying the phrase creeping Muslim demands, I was instantly dismissed as "a paranoiac racist". This must all be a figment of my imagination, then.

Meanwhile artists have morphed Jesus in to Bin Laden. No beheadings or street rallies calling for the slaughter of the artists have yet been reported in response.

    These drawings also caught my imagination. I have collated todays news items from Sweden on the subject on the NER at http://www.newenglishreview.org/blog_direct_link.cfm/blog_id/9941

    The Swedish Prime Minister (no muppet jokes about "And now a massage from the Swedish Prime Minister" please) said
    " I think it's important to say two things. First, we are eager to ensure that Sweden remains a country in which Muslims and Christians, people who believe in God and people who don't believe in God, can live side by side in a spirit of mutual respect.
    We are also eager to stand up for freedom of expression, which is enshrined in the constitution and comes naturally to us, and which ensures that we do not make political decisions about what gets published in the newspapers. I want to make sure we keep things that way"

    Jonz--

    Check out the first comment here for an interesting post about "cultural Marxism" which effectively promotes the idea of redistribution of free speech rights.
