    You might be interested in Australia’s blasphemy laws in Victoria. It is under the Racial and Religious Tolerance act 2001, and the wiki page shows some of it’s use by Islamic organisations to silence critics.

    The two important parts in the act are:

    http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/vic/consol_act/rarta2001265/s8.html

    (1) A person must not, on the ground of the religious belief or activity of
    another person or class of persons, engage in conduct that incites hatred
    against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of, that other
    person or class of persons.

    and

    http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/vic/consol_act/rarta2001265/s11.html

    Which grants exceptions for various cases (art, debate, academic, so long as in “good faith”) and for “religious purposes” where “a religious purpose includes, but
    is not limited to, conveying or teaching a religion or proselytising.” In other words, the hateful texts in the Quran, Hadith, and teachings of Islam are exempt.

    If in australia, both of you would be charged under this act, judging by the tame examples of other charges.

    Sorry I meant to say “If in Victoria, Australia”. It is a state law not a federal law. Also there is provision in the act that the breach does not have to be made inside Victoria.

    Bangladesh protesters demand blasphemy law to Allah, Q. 5:72, 73 — April 6, 2013 AlJazeera News
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1O53QVbO0Q

    Quran 5:72, 73 “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity (God of Christinaity): for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.”

    Allah is a racist…He is an Arabic god, his chief henchman was an Arab, the Quran was written in Arabic for Arabs…Arabs are the best of people, the best looking and have the best hair (if you don’t count lice)…The entire early Islamic drama happened in Arabia where Allah still makes his home in the ka’aba…
    Blacks are raisin heads…As far as Allah is concerned all Mahoundians are equal, but some are a little more equal than others…

    Robert & David are great :-)

    Till 10 min, David explains excellent blasphemy :-)

    8:65 “O Prophet! rouse the Believers to the fight.” 3:110 “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind” (Muslims)
    vs.

    8:55 “vilest of animals” (kuffar, unbelievers) 98:6 “They (unbelievers) are the worst of creatures.”

    Robert Spencer (2:00) “These are POLITICAL statements
    NOT just RELIGIOUS statements
    … the best of people rule … the worst of people are ruled and are subjugated” (jizyah, as so-called dhimmi 2nd class citizen Q. 9:29 [or 3rd class, under Muslim women])

    26 Min … to the Taqiyyah(3:28, 16:106)-visage & Muslim speaker Reza Aslan:

    Sharia (The Path, law of God Allah vs. democracy, man made law) that comes direct form the Qur’an & ahadith Sahih (i.e. “sound, reliable”) Bukhari + Muslim

    The coward(8:17) Sadist(e.g. 10:4) Allah, Q. 5:38 “(thieves) AMPUTATE their HANDS”
    vs. German Constitution Art 2, 2 “Everybody has the right to life and PHYSICAL INTEGRITY”

    Those whom don’t live in the U.S. have no clue about the ideology of Americans. Some of you don’t have a clue about the Holy Bible and Christianity. Therefor, those people should end their ignorant judgement of the United States. For example did the United States really invade Iraq, or Afghanistan? And if they did, why did they leave. Also Egypt is quickly becoming an enemy of the U.S. through the Muslim Brotherhoods ideology. Nonetheless, the U.S. just gave them 250 million dollars. Can you imagine Islam giving the U.S. 250 million dollars?…..

    My point is the two ideologies are as far apart as fire and water. One proves strength by clever use of fear and muscle. While the other proves strength through kindness and civil rights throughout the world……

    The two will never be allies or have the same respect for human life…… But debate and communications are important to these issues….. The problem is Islam will not entire in on such an event in public…… Because their best weapon is still taqiyya and masking the truth concerning their ideology…….

    Great show. Spencer gets better and better in the ABN format. It’s always great to see Spencer and Wood together.

    Wonderful show!

    We need to fast and pray for deliverance from Islamic conquest via Shariah law. But, IF Obama signs a treaty against blasphemy with the OIC-run U.N. (like he signed the Small Arms Treaty) and the Senate votes (with SCYTL’s SOE Software counting votes, who knows) to ratify it, we will need to turn to the Book of Esther.

    In the Bible, Esther secured the right of the Jews to self-defense against “legal” annihilation. We the People would need to be prepared to speak out against Shariah law (like this show illustrates) and be prepared to enforce U.N. blasphemy laws against Muslims and Islam. Hopefully we can do it with Judaeo-Christian dignity. When a Muslim calls a non-Muslim a “dirty infidel,” which they become accustomed to do in Muslim countries, that is hate speech and would need to be prosecuted. When an Imam incites its members to abuse, plunder, rape, or murder a non-Muslim, that Imam would need to be prosecuted for inciting religious hatred and violence. We would need to demand that the Qur’an be banned as hate speech against non-Muslims. If the OIC has it’s way and we become bound to an international treaty against our First Amendment (as the Small Arms Treaty is against our Second Amendment), we would either need to submit to Islamic slavery or use their treaty against them until we rise up and reject it.
