"Free speech is all well and good, but not applicable in this case." - 'Len'

And there you have it: Muslim impudence on display for all to see.

No one who is American first would make such a seditious statement re: free speech. What 'Len' is really saying is, continue to look the other way while we make advances because of your complacency.

If I'm wrong, and Len is not Muslim, but for some reason has a misplaced sense of allegiance, then it's time to wake up.

Here's an example of more advanced influence of Islamic desire for dominence:

In the Belgian capital of Brussels (which is 20 percent Muslim), several immigrant neighborhoods have become "no-go" zones for police officers, who frequently are pelted with rocks by Muslim youth. In the Kuregem district of Brussels, which often resembles an urban war zone, police are forced to patrol the area with two police cars: one car to carry out the patrols and another car to prevent the first car from being attacked. In the Molenbeek district of Brussels, police have been ordered not to drink coffee or eat a sandwich in public during the Islamic month of Ramadan.
In Germany, Chief Police Commissioner Bernhard Witthaut, in an August 1 interview with the newspaper Der Westen, revealed that Muslim immigrants are imposing "no-go" zones in cities across Germany at an alarming rate.

In the Tower Hamlets area of East London (also known as the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets), for example, extremist Muslim preachers, called the Tower Hamlets Taliban, regularly issue death threats to women who refuse to wear Islamic veils. Neighborhood streets have been plastered with posters declaring "You are entering a Sharia controlled zone: Islamic rules enforced." And street advertising deemed offensive to Muslims is regularly vandalized or blacked out with spray paint.
In the Bury Park area of Luton, Muslims have been accused of "ethnic cleansing" by harassing non-Muslims to the point that many of them move out of Muslim neighborhoods. In the West Midlands, two Christian preachers have been accused of "hate crimes" for handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham. In Leytonstone in east London, the Muslim extremist Abu Izzadeen heckled the former Home Secretary John Reid by saying: "How dare you come to a Muslim area."
In France, large swaths of Muslim neighborhoods are now considered "no-go" zones by French police. At last count, there are 751 Sensitive Urban Zones (Zones Urbaines Sensibles, ZUS), as they are euphemistically called. A complete list of the ZUS can be found on a French government website, complete with satellite maps and precise street demarcations. An estimated 5 million Muslims live in the ZUS, parts of France over which the French state has lost control.
Muslim immigrants are taking control of other parts of France too. In Paris and other French cities with high Muslim populations, such as Lyons, Marseilles and Toulouse, thousands of Muslims are closing off streets and sidewalks (and by extension, are closing down local businesses and trapping non-Muslim residents in their homes and offices) to accommodate overflowing crowds for Friday prayers. Some mosques have also begun broadcasting sermons and chants of "Allahu Akbar" via loudspeakers into the streets.
The weekly spectacles, which have been documented by dozens of videos posted on and which have been denounced as an "occupation without tanks or soldiers," have provoked anger and disbelief. But despite many public complaints, local authorities have declined to intervene because they are afraid of sparking riots.

Here's a start (an older column but touches on many areas):
Growth of Islamistan in Europe means No-Go Zones for Non-Muslims
Soeren Kern August 23rd 2011
Hudson New York
Islamic extremists are stepping up the creation of "no-go" areas in European cities that are off-limits to non-Muslims. Many of the "no-go" zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services. The "no-go" areas are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations. In Britain, for example, a Muslim group called Muslims Against the Crusades has launched a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls "Londonistan" – into independent Islamic states. The so-called Islamic Emirates would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic Sharia law and operate entirely outside British jurisprudence.
The Islamic Emirates Project names the British cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as Waltham Forest in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as territories to be targeted for blanket Sharia rule.

Hi, DG: You might learn something by reading the valid arguments in the discussion on this forum. You seem to be the type who fits in the category of those with their heads in the sand., which is completely understandable because on the surface, extending special exceptions to Muslims can seem like the nice thing to do. You even put that generous (yet naive) attitude into the framework of our country's ethos; however, at the heart of our country's success is assimilation. The requests for special exceptions and circumstances may sound reasonable, but they are part of something larger and unreasonable: a foothold to greater subjugation of non-Muslims. You may be laughing at this point. Don't. Instead, start to read about the countries in Europe that are a few years ahead of us in terms of Muslim immigration.

sublime: I've noticed that you characterize others' comments as "attacks" instead of seeing them as the expresiion of beliefs and convictions based on research and compassion. Freedom of conscience and thought is limited in Islam, but it cannot be controlled in free minds, on comment boards, and certainly not in this great country; that must be very frustrating for you and your friends/advisors. You seem to be the one to throw out name-calling and accusactions quite readily. I'm wondering who is really blinded? Please know that the number of peope who see that this whole swimtime/hijab/gender-segregation-maneuvering for what it is -- a method of exerting control over non-Muslims -- is growing every day. Please know that there are others who care deeply about Freedom - including yours.

I find it disgusting and outrageous that KPBS has allowed the hate-speech and cyber-bullying on here tho stand,obviously someone connected to one of the groups listed on the SPLC website.This helps to undermine domestic and international security, also off topic
I was wondering if you could please clarify your comment. What exactly are you saying is "hate speech and cyber bullying"? There are basically two sides of thought on this comment board (three if you want to include the people who just think we should all keep our heads in the sand): those who see serious problems with the ideology if Islam, and those who defend Islam's doctrines and jurisprudence. Are you suggesting that the voices of those who have lived, studied, and thoughtfully discerned, and formed an opinion on the dangers of Islam, are not allowed to have a voice. Do first amendment protections only apply to one side? Nope. Not here. Not in the United States of America (unless you're Molly Norris - more on that later) where everyday religions are scrutinized and criticized (see Catholic Church, Mormon Church, etc) . That's good! And Islam should not be excluded from the applications and judgments of critical thinking skills. We do not have blasphemy laws.

There is the possibility that the hate speech you were referring to are the actual Koran verses calling for killing infidels, spousal abuse, etc. In that case, I would agree with you that that is hate speech, but I fully support the broadcast of those verses so that people can begin to understand what Muslims read and teach.

Regarding your comment that criticism of Islam undermines domestic and international security. Is that a threat? Or simply an observation that when criticized (as in the truth pointed out), Mulsims threaten violent protests and offer death threats to those who disagree with them? I believe real 'Islamophobia' is fear of violence and being put on the 'bad' list of Muslim organizations that engage in their own form of very real bullying. Trey Parker and Matt Stone could tell you what I'm talking about. Molly Norris could, if she didn't have to go into hiding for exercising free speech rights. Theo van Gogh could tell you, except angry Muslims who did not like what he had to say killed him. Perhaps you feel safer self-censoring criticism, but do not expect others to do so.

How do you feel about nominally "Christian" Nativists who refer to undocumented immigrants as "cockroaches" and Mexican Americans as "anchor babies"?
Why would you ask that? "Cockroaches" is a despicable name for anyone, of course. It's a deplorable attitude and heart and mind-set, which is exactly why Islam's hate is so destructive. How can one rightfully recognize and condemn that hatred, and yet turn the other way or even condone hatred rooted in supremacist attitudes of Islam? It makes no sense. Christian doctrine calls for loving one's neighbor, so actions of hate are an aberration from that; those fringe "Christian" groups are following their own sick, twisted cult, but they do not represent true Christianity. Isalmic doctrine is the opposite, calling for "those who do not embrace Islam to be pursued and destroyed by a piercing flame" for one Koran example. The most pure examples of CHristians fully embracing their faith are the servants and saints of history who have spread good not evil (think Mother Teresa). Sadly, the most devout followers of Islam are those who fully embody the Koran verses and act on those many verses that call for the subjugations killing of infidels (think Khalid ALi-M Aldarsari).

I do not follow Glenn Beck. The word 'coward' may be a book title, but it is very useful for descibing people who hide behind self-righteous indignation.

"Nyeemah: robert spencer a humanitarian? Well if you are attacking the good work of SPLC who bankrupted local white supremacist Tom Metzger and other white supremacist and challenged the hate groups across the country whether it be anti semities, islamophobes, anti gay groups, etc than you have issues."

You misrepresented what I said about SPLC; I specifically criticized their nonsense re: Islam, yet you chose to turn that into something it wasn't. For the record, however, I do know that SPLC is the most profitable non-profit in the US, raking in tens of millions above and beyond their spending to squash fairly weak and marginal fringe groups like the ones you mentioned through shakedowns and hustling. Outrage is big business. The SPLC are extrememly wealthy cowards who, rather than take on the very real hate in Islam, go after the people who draw attention to the human rights abuses that are inherent in islam. I'll be impressed by them the day they have something to say about the Koran verses that refer to non-Muslims and Jews as pigs and apes, etc. and all the other hate-filled verses that address the punishment that non-Muslims deserve, according to the Koran. Mosques all over the US teach and preach hate; SPLC could be quite busy but it wouldn't be profitable or safe..

And yes, Robert Spencer works to advance human rights and freedom through education.
