“‘The heart of the Muslim,’” by Howard Feldman, Times of Israel, January 11, 2015:
According to the South African Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) freedom of speech has its limits – especially when “connected to the heart of the Muslim.” In a statement that would confuse even the most intelligent amongst us, we are left wondering, despite the assertions condemning violence, where they stand on the matter.
Or maybe, sadly, we aren’t.
The statement, “We accept freedom of speech, but there is a limit to your freedom of expression when there is something that could potentially lead to hate speech” adds to the enigma, and I for one am left wanting.

Who would get to decide what might “lead us” to temptation. The MJC? One shivers at the thought.
