Right to Speech or Right to Lie?

Islamo-facism or Islamo-phobia?

Where will this end if we don't use our "Freedom of Speech" to speak, while we still have it? - Satanic Verses? Freedom of Speech? Cartoonists drawing offensive pictures of prophet Muhammad? What does all this say about "rights" in Islam?


Salman Rusdie's book, "Satanic Verses" and he called it "Freedom of Speech - Cartoonists draw offence caricatures of prophet Muhammad and call it "Freedom of Expression" -

U.S. groups visiting universities promoting their own "Islamofacism" - Denmark Muslims hold an all day, televised symposium especially for the journalists, cartoonists and other media and politicians - detailing the Quran and teachings of Muhammad and answered their questions to their satisfaction.

But the next day, the newspaper presented very twisted the stories and manipulated pictures around to give the appearance of violence, aggression and oppression. The lied and said the opposite of what the speakers and presenters had offered at the symposium.

When the Muslims requested the authorities to have them retract this false information, the answer came back "We have the Freedom of Speech."

Isn't this more like - "The FREEDOM to LIE?"


When anyone can go around saying anything they want about anyone they want, this seems to be more of "Freedom to Lie" situation than a "Freedom of Speech."
