He commissioned the cartoons, he tells Liberty Law Talk , because he was taken aback by the self-censorship in Denmark, and throughout Europe, on the subject of Islam and its status in European democracies. The effect, Rose notes, is to drive controversial ideas or arguments out of the public sphere. We discuss the new model of interaction exercised by political leaders in Europe, which is to deal with individuals within minority groups solely as members of those groups, religions, or ethnicities rather than as individuals. There is no doubt that Rose is a tremendous journalist who demonstrated his commitment to the basic truths of a free society.
This interview is an opportunity to hear from someone who has ventured much in the defense of freedom. About the Author. We need more people like him to stand up for the spirit of openness and honesty and truth.
Otherwise, the retreat in allowing groups without checks and balances will once again plunge the world into anarchy and tyranny, making it a place of horror in which to live. If the West does not stand up for the wisdom produced from its Judeo Christian Ethic, its checks and balances, we will repeat the mistakes of the past, so to speak, and such group think will lead inevitably to the abyss.
I appreciate Mr. This could be rephrased more simply for our Muslim brethren as: in the West, we and they have the right to be offended without our having to kill the person who so offends. Because this is the way we conceive God in the West: God is not injured, and cannot be injured, nor can his prophets, by the words of mere men. Item s unavailable for purchase.

We appreciate your feedback. The line between maligning the Holy Prophet and questioning a law made by a bunch of mullahs was done away with. What would come next? During the last two months sar tan se juda off with their heads has become as familiar a slogan as all the corporate songs about the Cricket World Cup. Banners appeared all over Karachi and Islamabad last week demanding death for a Pakistani writer. The only problem is that nobody quite knows what she has written.
Her last book came out more than eight years ago and, if it wasn't so scary, it would be ironic that it is called Blasphemy. It was a potboiler set mostly in religious and spiritual leaders' bedrooms. The banners condemning her say that not only she has insulted the prophet, she has insulted religious scholars. So now disagreeing with anyone who has a beard and armed bodyguards can get you killed.
The PPP government has tried to appease this lot by silencing the one-and-a-half liberal voices it had. In an attempt to allow Muslims and non-Muslims alike the chance to form their own opinion of the Prophet Muhammad, Salim Bachi presents the fictionalized story of this exceptional man told by four key characters--his first wife, Khadija; his closest friend, Caliph Abu Bakr; the fiery warrior, General Khalid; and his last love Aisha, who became his wife at the age of nine.
