Lars Hedegaard’s “Racism” Case Goes Before Supreme Court

Lars Hedegaard | Today, April 13, 2012, President of the Danish Free Press Society Lars Hedegaard will have his day in the Danish Supreme Court to which has appealed his previous conviction for so-called hate speech. Concerning the background of the case, read Ann Snyder’s article <http://pjmedia.com/blog/round-three-in-the-trial-of-lars-hedegaard/>. Here is an English translation of his final words to the Court: Honourable Supreme Court, My attorney has presented juridical arguments to the effect that I must be acquitted and I shall refrain from elaborating. However, allow me to express my quiet bafflement that somebody can claim that it has been my intention to accuse every last Muslim father in the world of abusing his children – particularly in light of the fact that I have carefully explained that it was never my intention to disseminate such an absurd contention. For precisely that reason, I would have welcomed an opportunity to review the statements I now stand accused of having uttered before they…

In UK Israel Apartheid Week Sparks Issue

February 29, 2012

Janet Daley | The Telegraph   The Lib Dem peer Jenny Tonge has done it again. Appearing at an Israel Apartheid Week event (the basic premise of which was that Israel is an “apartheid state”) in which a fellow-speaker spewed forth a tirade attacking Jews who did not condemn Israel, she predicted that the “Israel lobby” – sometimes known as the “Jewish lobby” – in the United States would soon be told by Americans in no uncertain terms that “enough was enough”. Baroness Tonge, while sarcastically welcoming reporters from the Jewish Chronicle to the gathering, insisted that she was not anti-Semitic. Well, enough certainly was enough for her party leader – and the leaders of all the other parties too, for that matter, who denounced her most recent outburst. Nick Clegg told her that she must apologise or he would take away the party whip. Needless to say, she didn’t and he has. To which one can only ask: what on earth took him so long? This woman has repeatedly made offensive attacks on the continued existence of…

Norwegian Schools Preach the Wonders of Niqab

January 10, 2012

  –Bruce Bawr, Front Page Magazine The news came three days before Christmas: The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has announced that the Department of Defense will now allow Muslim and Sikh students participating in Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) to wear headscarves and turbans while in uniform. When I read this, the first thing I thought was: What?! And the second was: Since when does CAIR make announcements on behalf of the Department of Defense? The background was as follows: a Muslim girl in Tennessee was told by her JROTC commanding officer that she could not wear her headscarf, or hijab, in a homecoming parade.  She contacted CAIR, which in turn contacted Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, asking for a change in policy.  And instead of informing CAIR that the Department of Defense does not take its marching orders from fronts for terrorist organizations, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Larry Stubblefield fell right into line, writing a…
