The Fall of
May, 25, 2005
In an act of total insanity, the Council of Europe,
decided to ban criticism of Islam equating it to anti-Semitism.

wrote: “Anti-Islamism has been included in the text as a “dangerous
inclination” that has to be fought against upon the insistence of Turkey
at the summit that 46 Council members attended. The conclusion draft of
the summit included the notion of "Islamophobia". The inclusion
of this notion in the European organizations' documents for the first time
is described as the success of Turkey.
The 3rd Council of Europe summit has for the first
time mentioned "Islamophobia" in the 9th paragraph of the Warsaw
Declaration that was accepted on Tuesday, May 17. The Council has reached
the following decisions regarding the issue: Condemnation of any kind of
intolerance and discrimination based on gender, race and religious beliefs
in particular, including Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, the fight against
these within the framework of the Council of Europe and the use of
effective mechanisms and rules to combat these problems.
Thus, anti-Islamism as well as anti-Semitism will be
dealt with within the framework of legal proceedings. The Council reports
will include anti-Islamist movements. The European Commission against
Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) will closely monitor these movements. The
Commission will record in which country anti-Islamism increases or how it
This is the beginning of the fall of
Europe. Anti-Islamism is not the same as anti-Semitism. Islam is a belief
system, Semites are a race. We can’t equate a race to a doctrine.
Racism is sheer evil. Apart from the fact that no race is better or worse
than other races, unless one is Michael Jackson, one can’t change his
race. Instigating hate against a race is instigating hate against mankind.
Doctrines that instigate racial hate must be condemned and those who
engage in racial slurs must be brought to justice.
Prohibiting criticism of Islam is like prohibiting
criticism of Judaism or Christianity. No one in his right mind would
suggest criticism of these religions should be banned. The very fact that
these religions have reformed and have adapted to modern times is because
they were criticized. Only during the inquisition, criticism of
Christianity was against the law. Are we trying to introduce Islamic
inquisition to appease Muslims? Are we trying to institute the blasphemy
law that is practiced in
to make Muslims happy? This is insane!
Islam advocates the hatred of the Jews in particular
but also of Christians who according to the Quran have corrupted their
Scripture and call Jesus the son of God. The Quran’s biggest
condemnation is reserved for the people of other religions and of no
religion. All these people, including Jews and Christians are considered to be najis and fuels of
This is hate. This is hate-mongering. There is no other way to put it. Why
are we not banning the Quran? Why are we not condemning Islam for
blatantly advocating hate?
The decision of the Council of Europe is oxymoronic.
How can we condemn anti-Semitism if we are not allowed to criticize Islam
that incites hatred of the Jews and says God transformed them into swine and
apes? Is this not insult?
There is a fundamental difference between religions
and people. One is made of flesh and bones and the other is merely a
doctrine. People must be protected, but doctrines don't need to be
protected. They have to be scrutinized, questioned and if found dangerous
or wrong, rejected. Doctrines that advocate
the hatred of people must be criticized and banned, not protected. How can
we protect the rights of people to life and to freedom if at the same time
we protect doctrines that incite hatred against them? If someone calls
Muslims filthy, untouchable, impure, he is inciting hate. He should be
stopped. This is
clearly a racial insult. But the Quran calls all of us who are not Muslims
najis. Najis means filthy, untouchable, impure. Why criticizing this book
of hate should be against the law? Is this not double standard? is this
not hypocrisy? Is this not dhimmitude? Why Muslims should be allowed to
insult everyone else but criticizing their hateful doctrine should be
against the law?
This decision simply makes no sense. It is a
contradiction. You can’t ban anti-Semitism and anti-Islamism at the same
time. Islam is anti-Jew and anti-Human. The two don’t go together. They
are mutually exclusive.
Today May 25, 2005 an Italian judge, Armando Grasso,
in city of Bergamo, ordered the
best-selling writer and journalist Oriana Fallaci to stand trial in her
on charges she defamed Islam in her book “La Forza della Ragione” (The
Force of Reason)
In it, Ms Fallaci. argues that
is turning into "an Islamic province, an Islamic colony" and
that "to believe that a good Islam and a bad Islam exist goes against
Fallaci wrote that terrorists had killed 6,000 people
over the past 20 years in the name of the Quran and said the Islamic faith
"sows hatred in the place of love and slavery in the place of
freedom." Fallaci spoke the truth. These are facts, not her
Adel Smith, president of the Muslim Union of Italy,
sued the writer, claiming that Ms Fallaci’s book is offensive to
So what? The Quran is offensive to all Mankind. No
one, including Ms. Fallaci, can go far enough to insult Muslims the way
the Quran insults non-Muslims, calling them, kafir (blasphemers), najis, fuels for
of God, etc. But the Quran does not stop there. It actually incites
violence against the non-Muslims. Muhammad asked his followers to instill
terror in the hearts of the unbelievers, to wage war against them, to
smite their heads from above their necks, to deceive them, to kill them
wherever they find them, even to rape their wives. Why such a book should
be protected and why criticizing it should be banned?
is threading a very dangerous path. Two things can happen in Europe:
Islam is left alone to grow unchecked, which means
will succumb to Islamism before the end of this century. Or
The Europeans sense the danger too late, panic, and
give birth to Eurofascism to counter Islamofascism.
In either case
will be destroyed.
Curtailing freedom of speech, specially banning
criticism of a doctrine of hate is foolishly dangerous.
is playing with fire. The path that
has taken today will lead to its fall before the end of this century, but
more likely it will auto disintegrate in a civil war in the next two or
Concerned Europeans must:
Write to their Prime Ministers, Presidents and
MPs and demand for freedom of speech and freedom to criticize
doctrines of hate.
Islam should not have privileges that
Christianity, Judaism or any other religion does not have.
Organize campaigns to defend freedom of speech
and beat the resolution of the Council of Europe.
Support candidates that are conscientious and are
not willing to sell their souls and your country to Islamists for
Politicians are like prostitutes, one will do
anything for your money, and the other will do anything for your vote.
Boycott those politicians who pander to Muslims for their votes with your vote.
Support parties that have anti Muslim
immigration policies and are not afraid to call a spade a spade. At
this moment, saving
is more important than your political ideology. Bite the bullet and
vote for parties that you don’t like but have clearly the interest
of saving your country from Islamofascism in mind.
