Free speech under attack

The website of the Manchester University Free Speech and Secular Society has been attacked and deleted following the receipt of a threatening message which read;

"Please Stop mocking Muslims otherwise you will feel remorse does not work on remorse"

Surprise, surprise the message originated from that most unenlightened of countries Saudi Arabia home of some of the most vile Islam(ist) preachers on the planet.

There are far to many attacks on our right to free speech and expression. Fear prevents many from speaking out those that do, especially in countries dominated by the religion by that cannot face criticism.

Bloggers are murdered in Bangladesh, flogged in Saudi Arabia, executed in Pakistan.

The Medievalists fear what they refer to as blasphemy because it it undermines their authority over their flocks, a bit like when only priests were the only ones who could read the Bible and only they could "interpret the "word of God".

Islam is afraid.

That's what is producing fundamentalism. Their hold on the masses is beginning to weaken. Only fear and brainwashing can sustain their twisted outlook of the world.

Now is the time to fight back.

There can be no surrender to the Islamist fascists.

That means fighting for women's rights. gay rights, in fact all basic human rights, the fundamental one being freedom of speech and expression.

The simple reason that this is what they are most afraid of.

The fight for a democratic and secular future begins now.
