anti islam in the Netherlands
I am worried about things that are happening in the Netherlands. There's this MP who made a youtube movie criticizing islam. Almost everyone is accusing him of being a racist, but if you listen to what he says and if you watch his movie, he's criticizing islam. One of his points is that if no muslims speak out against acts of terrorism committed in the name of islam, you have to assume they don't disagree.
I don't agree with this MP's political opinions but I do think he has a point. There's others, like Pat Condell, who make the same point. But I'd like them to put their islam criticism in an anti religion context so they can't be accused of being racists. Christianity has had their inquisition, which was as cruel as today's islam terrorists.
I am very worried about the Dutch govt urging an MP to give up freedom of speech in order not to offend islam. Companies are threatening to sue the MP for the damages in trade with Arab countries. Isn't this weird? Shouldn't freedom of speech prevale over religion?
