These are the kinds of laws that Islamic supremacists want to bring West. “Indonesian jailed for Prophet Mohammed cartoons,” from MSN News, June 14 (thanks to David):
An Indonesian man arrested after writing “God doesn’t exist” on his Facebook page was jailed for 30 months Thursday for sharing explicit material about the Prophet Mohammed online.
Alexander Aan, 30, was found guilty of “deliberately spreading information inciting religious hatred and animosity”, presiding judge Eka Prasetya Budi Dharma told the Muaro Sijunjung district court in western Sumatra.
Aan started an atheist group on Facebook on which he shared comic strips of the prophet having sex with his servant, Dharma said.
He also uploaded three articles on his account, including one describing the prophet being attracted to his daughter-in-law.
Horror of horrors. In reality, the Qur’an alludes to this incident (33:37), and the details of Muhammad’s attraction to and subsequent marriage to his former daughter-in-law are filled in by the historian Tabari and others. Even the modern Muslim biographer of Muhammad, Muhammad Hussein Haykal, never challenges the authenticity of the story, but asserts that this was the sort of thing to which Muhammad was entitled: “The rules which are law to the people at large do not apply to the great.”
“Under the Electronic Information and Transactions law, we sentence him to prison for a length of two years and six months,” Dharma said.
“What he did has caused anxiety to the community and tarnished Islam.”
Aan was beaten by an angry mob and arrested by police in his hometown of Pulau Punjung in western Sumatra in January after posting the material online and declaring himself an atheist….
