South Park vs Islam [Video]

DL at

So the US-based Muslim website posted a barely concealed veiled threat against the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear costume.

Well kudos to the South Park creators for showing the backbone to defiantly stand against those who hope, through threats of violence, to have a chilling effect on free speech.

I see no reason to mince words here. Theo van Gogh was killed for nothing other than making a film critical of Islam. He was shot, stabbed and beheaded in the capital of a First World country. Over a hundred were killed world wide in riots etc over the Danish cartoons.
-It is unacceptable, unthinkable, that we should stand by and allow such folk to import the core of their religion, -the core which has kept their civilization in the dark ages for the last 800 years into our enlightened civilization. Not while I have my strength. I have seen the fruits of the Enlightenment, and I have seen the stagnation of the Middle East.
We cannot allow them to do this as firstly they do not have the maturity to wield the power of the Age of Reason, and secondly who in their right might would wish to re-embrace the Dark Ages.

Sharia Law is an irrelevance in the first world, and if you think that if someone draws a picture of your 'Prophet' that this means you have the right to kill them, then you have no place in the First World.

Is Islam a hate crime?
