And yet another round of senseless violence from the adherents of the ‘religion of peace’ over allegations of A blasphemy by a Christian.
Over 3,000 Muslim protesters turned violent over derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed allegedly made by Sawan Masih, a 28-year-old Christian, three days earlier, police official Multan Khan said.
Dont trust the news.
Depicting Islam as manifestly medieval, backward, and cruel is not new…. Recognizing that the propaganda that is being ground out in the mainstream media derives from that conflict, it is easy to understand why Muslims are persistently portrayed in negative terms…
objective is to justify the seemingly unending series of wars in Asia, presenting the local people as lacking in the civilized moral and political values that we all hold dear.

This wouldn’t be the first time the news misinformed the public about the Muslim world. For examples, see
Renowned Theologian Hamza Yusuf Hanson states
accepted by consensus. There is no vigilantism in Islam. Muslims believe in state authority.
Does it make more sense to
A. trust the consensus of qualified scholars who have devoted their whole lives to studying Islam
B. trust lay people living in scattered countries, many of whom are poor, uneducated, and dont even know classical arabic (the language of the quran)
I would like to thank you, however, Asanta for bringing up the issue of ‘‘freedom of speech’‘.
That is a slightly debated topic even in the US (or at least made controversial thanks to the history channel).
So I just want to know, what people think is the limit for free speech. Most people I know use the 10 ammendments from the US constitution as their reference.
They are secular and interesting clauses to study. So I am curious to know if you agree with this or not. Whats your view on using the constituion as a reference?
