And they’ll get it, too. Once they do, the ones who get to decide what constitutes “religious hatred,” as opposed to the telling of unpleasant truths, will wield immense political power, and become a protected class within society.
Note also that the police carted off one pro-freedom voice, while Islamic supremacists are allowed to heckle and shout down counter-jihadists with impunity.
“Protests against US anti-Islam film reach Scottish Parliament,” from The Scotsman, September 21 (thanks to Twostellas):
AROUND 150 Muslims have demonstrated outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh calling for a ban on offensive material such as the anti-Islam film which has sparked protests around the world.
Demonstrators waved banners reading “No religion is allowed to insult any other religion” and “We demand international law to stop religious hatred”.
The amateur film Innocence Of Muslims, made in the US, has sparked international unrest which has claimed lives including US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
Protest spokesman Akeel Umar said the demonstration outside Parliament is peaceful, while likening those involved in the violence elsewhere to football fans who get carried away on match day.
Police removed a bystander who shouted at the protesters: “20,000 terrorist attacks since 2001. How do you justify that?”
Mr Umar said the protesters come from a range of local Islamic organisations.
“We want to raise our concerns with the Scottish Parliament so that some necessary changes can be made with reference to Ofcom and the regulators to stop promotion of any hateful media clips,” he said.
“Perhaps the laws need to be looked at and reassessed.”
He said Muslims in Edinburgh are “more hurt than angry” about the film.
“The video itself was made by a director who conned some of the actors,” he said.
