It seems that muslim countries are run by radicals. We are always being told that muslim extremists are a minority and not representative of most muslims. I am thinking that is bullshit because we don't ever hear from the peaceful ones and it gets old hearing all the hateful crap from the so-called moderates. muslim governments now ban anything offensive to islam.

Turkey is threatening to block Facebook unless all posts that insult islam are removed. I hate to think what happens to Turkish citizens who say anything negative about islam.

Iran has a man on death row and plans to hang him because he posted something "offensive" to islam. They are supposed to be a moderate government.

Fuck them. The ones who come here will expect the same kind of laws upheld.


From the link:

Pages that insult the Prophet Muhammad must be removed from Facebook, or the site will be blocked in the country of Turkey, a court in Ankara ruled Sunday according to the state-run Andalou Agency.

The ruling comes just days after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg publicly declared his support for free speech, saying that, "Facebook has always been a place where people across the world share their views and ideas." On January 9 he posted: "We follow the laws in each country, but we never let one country or group of people dictate what people can share across the world."

Despite Zuckerburg’s tough talk, statistics released by Facebook show that Facebook has removed 1,893 "pieces of content" at the request of Turkey’s government, the Daily Mail reported.

Although Turkey has been a secular country since 1924, it has recently been succumbing to radical elements common in the rest of the majority Muslim countries in the Middle East and begun to repress free speech.

Many in the West talk of the "moderation" of Iran’s regime. Foreign Minister Mohamed Zarif flies around the world claiming that Iran is committed to peace, justice and human rights. That would come as news to the thousands of political prisoners languishing in Iranian jail for nothing more than advocating freedom and democracy.

Soheil Arabi is one of those activists whose Facebook posts landed him on death row. What was Arabi's great "crime"? He is charged with "spreading corruption on Earth," (mofsed-e-filarz), punishable by death in Iran.

Soheil was first arrested and sentenced to death in November 2013 on the charge of "insulting the Prophet" (sabb-e-nabi). Article 262 of the Islamic Penal Code of Iran explains:

You seem to be saying that if Soheil went to the states he'd expect anti insult laws to be enforced. Have you really thought it through?
