why is that when someone says something against Jews or the holocaust in America they can get arrested for it but when they say something against our religion,Islam, its considered as freedom of speech?
I should clarify for all the people out there who might get the wrong meaning from the above statement that am NOT against Jews but i am against racism!
I was reading an article in time magazine a few weeks back about the controversy of building a mosque near ground zero. I did some research on this topic and was flabbergasted(Well not realy since i already know your opinion about Muslims) to see that half of the comments were kinda like this
-Some of the Muslim leaders associated with the mosque "are clearly terrorist sympathizers." — Kevin Calvey, a Republican running for Congress in Oklahoma.
-"There should be no mosque near ground zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia. ... America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive designed to undermine and destroy our civilization." — Gingrich.
-"This religion's plan is to destroy our way of life. ... If we have to let them build it, make them build it nine stories underground, so we can walk above it as citizens and Christians." — Ron McNeil, a House GOP candidate in the Florida Panhandle, in an exchange reported by The News Herald in Panama City.
I would like to take this opportunity to clarify you people out there who agree with the above comments that our religion Islam is all about peace and harmony. It does not allow any Muslim in any circumstance to kill an innocent human being even in war whether he/she is a Muslim or a non-Muslim. What happened on 9/11 was because a bunch of people claiming to be Muslims. If someone points at a cat and say its a dog doesn't mean your gonna believe that slightly deranged person.
As for the second comment, Saudi Arab is a one religion based country it never claimed to be supporting any other religion, as for America it was founded on the belief of freedom justice and equality, where every citizen has a right to do what they want (as long as it is not illegal of course) and say what they want or to put it in your words "freedom of speech".
the recent survey has shown that hatred against Muslim is a very open and acceptable kind of racism.Its actually quite sad to know for a country whos supposed to be well educated and totally against racism you guys believe everything you hear! how bout doing some proper research..get to know about our religion a little before you go on hating it, but i guess its easier for you people to believe whatever you hear no matter how stupid it is...
