The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) passed a verdict last Thursday that insulting Islam’s Prophet Mohammed would be a punishable offense and will not be protected as ‘free speech’.

Court Case

A panel of seven-judges decided that defaming or demeaning the Prophet Mohammed goes ‘beyond permissible limits of an objective debate.  And it could cause prejudice in the society and will risk religious peace’.

The court case was about a lecturer who would talk about Mohammed being a pedophile. The court said that the woman’s comments did not abide by freedom of expression.  Then the court stated that “the applicant’s statements had been likely to arouse justified indignation in Muslims” and “amounted to a generalization without factual basis.”

This is a huge strike against freedom of speech in Europe. The court just decided that feelings are more important than free speech.

A win for Islamists and a loss for Freedom Loving Muslims

This European court has just allowed sharia law to be part of European law. This is a huge win for the Islamists who are out to conquer Europe through cultural jihad, bringing about internal changes to comply with sharia law.

This is a huge loss for all those Muslims who escaped the intolerant and violent Muslim Middle East for the freedom of the West. Instead of receiving the protection of Western democracies to stop the intolerance and violence of their fellow jihadist Muslims, Western “democratic” Europe is capitulating to the Islamists. In essence, those freedom loving Muslims, who ran away from their own co-religionists, are now in more danger as well.  Western Europe is incorporating the intolerance of Sharia law.
