Swedish Government Caves to Islamic Radicals

by @ 5:03 pm. Filed under Evangelicals Under Attack, Questionable Items

The Swedish Government is the first Western government to cave to the demands of Islamic Radicals.

Swedes block cartoon website

The Swedish government tried and failed to shut down the Web site of the paper of the right-wing Democrats party over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, United Press International (UPI) reported.

It was the first time a Western government has tried to block a publication in the sudden firestorm.

But new servers kept the SD-Kuriren website running after the main host, Levonline, pulled the plug at the government’s request.

While I’m not one who is screaming “raise the Muhammad cartoons on every corner”, I am against government censoring any media outlet from publishing them. For a government to do so, is to cave into Radical Nuts. For the government of any Western nation to even speak against anyone publishing the cartoons is hypocritical. None of them ever speak out against abusive images of Christ, Buddha or any other abusive image related to faith.

Rather than “bash” with a cartoon I prefer to speak the truth that Muhammad is not the prophet of God and Jesus is the way to true salvation. And plenty of Christians have lost their lives in Arab lands saying that! How long before Muslim Radicals go after TV Evangelists that speak against the Muslim faith? I doubt it will take long. Gay activists already get Christian pastors imprisoned for “hate speech” in some countries. Blog RightFaith shows how American gay activists are already trying to angle attacks at outspoken Christians.

And the “Blame Bush” effort continues. Now Iran’s nutty President blames Bush and the USA for the cartoons.

Iran rebukes U.S., Europe in publishing caricatures

Iran’s hard-line president accused the United States and Europe yesterday of being “hostages to Zionists” and said that they should pay a heavy price for the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that have triggered worldwide protests.

In a speech marking the 27th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution Saturday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad linked his public rage with Israel and the cartoons satirizing Islam’s most revered figure.

“Now, in the West, insulting the prophet is allowed, but questioning the Holocaust is considered a crime,” he said. “We ask, ‘Why do you insult the prophet?’ The response is that it is a matter of freedom, while in fact, they are hostages of the Zionists. And the people of the U.S. and Europe should pay a heavy price for becoming hostages to Zionists.”

Of course he says nothing about the fact no Jews are trying to KILL and burn buildings over anyone questioning the Holocaust. Meanwhile, the US Government is appropriately planning how to stick some bombs up his butt. (Attack his nuclear sites.)

Fire & Hammer says freedom is under attack and sees a double standard at play which favors Muslims.

Ken at Oblogatory Anecdotes suggests that the Radical Muslim response is the beginning of an international effort of “Dhimmitude”. It is a very good read and shows that people in many Islamic nations are used to having a double standard that favors them!

No matter if I agree or disagree with what a newspaper publishes, I defend their right to say it.

Christians realize that people who attack our faith are not Christians and so they are not bound to the same rules. If it were done inside of a church building we would remove them, but beyond that we don’t use censorship via force against those who speak against our faith. Radical Muslims feel that everyone must “act like a Muslim”, even when they are not a member of the faith. But then again, their goal is to make everyone a Muslim, even if by force.

One Response to “Swedish Government Caves to Islamic Radicals”

  1. Independent Conservative Says:

    Islamic Radical Riots Over Muhammad Cartoons Comes Stateside!

    Michelle Malkin is facing cyber-attacks and she is getting death threats.
    I don’t think the radicals are going to win over any more converts to Islam with this activity.
    This is just more proof that we’ve got to kill them or they will …
