As you might recall my post here i am forced again to repeat:


Blasphemy laws?

Well for each case where someone is sentenced to anything else but exposure to criticism you will get a "fuck Allah" from me.

Not because i believe it (how could i anyway) but because i won't let such idiotic laws stand there and cause such harm.

This time we have a 15 year old girl in the UK arrested. Not even in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia. No, it's god old Britain. Of course there the law is not to arrest someone for insulting the holy prophet or the divine. Clever as the British are they use a better formulation: inciting religious hatred

I wonder why they didn't arrest the Pope when he linked atheism and secular world views to the Nazis.


Catherine Heseltine, chief executive officer of the Muslim public affairs committee, said burning the Qur'an was one of the most offensive acts to Muslims she could imagine.
"The Qur'an is the most sacred thing to over a billion Muslims worldwide. You can see that in the way Muslims treat the Qur'an, washing before touching it, and in many Muslim homes you will find it on the top shelf above all other books, and we will never destroy the Qur'anic texts."


Lady Heseltine doesn't get it and she has obviously no imagination. Whether the Quran is the most sacred text to Muslims or not is of no relevance for the owner of a copy of it. No matter how stupid or ludicrous a burning of a book might be, if you paid for that book it's yours and you do with it what you want to.

And don't you think that this girl did something special. You know how many books get destroyed each and every day because of negligence, boredom or disinterest. But of course the deliberate burning of one copy of the Quran in a small school by a 15 year old kid is totally different.

Here we have Muslims feeling terribly offended by a childish act that wouldn't be worth a second in the news for any other book. Is that religion so vulnerable? Are the people so vulnerable?

And why would the authority in Britain actually care for this nonsense? Is the British government so afraid that they enforce an anticipatory obedience?


But it get's even more ludicrous. If burning a book of which millions or perhaps even billions of copies exist is one of the most offensive act to Muslims that is imaginable by that Lady, then she is already living in Wonderland in the first place. Tell that to the thousands of women raped each day, tell it to the people suffering from warfare or hunger. You might be lucky and survive a few minutes before they rip you apart for that idiotic remark.

Any book that promotes mass genocide in the name of a false god should be burned in my opinion and of course Britain doesn't like it because that would intefere with the morality of followers that the keep under cover with the laws of the so called holy. UGH
