U.K. Insanity - Criminalizing Criticism of Islam

Several months ago, students at Clare College in the U.K. published an edition of their unofficial newspaper that satarized religion, including Islam. The paper included an editorial titled "Why I Hate Islam" and a front page headline "Ayatollah rethinks stance on 'misunderstood' Rushdie." On the back page of the publication was a picture of the student publisher and a cartoon depicting Mohammed, with the caption: "One is a prophet of God, a great leader and an example to us all. The other is a violent paedophile." Good taste - no. Criminal - one would think not in a country that holds insuring freedom of speech to be one of the prime functions of government. But the U.K. has already been altered from its anglo-saxon roots by the influx of wahabbi Islamists, and in the finest tradition of suicidal multiculturalism, Parliment codified the crime of criticizing Islam. And now . . . the student publishers of this satire at Clare College are being questioned by Britain's thought police for a violation of the Hate Speech law. It is an abomonation in a free society.
