For anyone interested in "Hate speech", the Council of Europe has published a 104 page manual detailing what exactly might be considered "Hate speech", and thus subject to serious preventive punishment. From the manual (page 5):
The identification of statements that could be classified as “hate speech” seems all the more difficult because this kind of speech does not necessarily manifest itself through expressions of “hatred” or emotions. “Hate speech” can be concealed in statements which at a first glance may seem to be rational or normal.”
Potential "Hate Speechers" are encouraged to read the manual. It is surprisingly easy, according to the Council of Europe and Anne Weber, to engage in "Hate Speech". The easiest way to do so is to engage in Discrimination, which according to the Lisbon Treaty is outlawed in every form.
AFDI/SIOA co-founder and Executive Director Pamela Geller has won an important victory for free speech. Omar Tarazi, a lawyer linked to the Hamas front group the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has dismissed his ten-million-dollar libel lawsuit against Geller with prejudice: it cannot be re-filed.
Geller explained: "This is a huge victory for the First Amendment, truth, and the anti-Sharia movement in this country, which is exposing an insidious cancer that brings progressives and Islamic supremacists together in common cause to attack anyone who criticizes Islamic supremacism with the threat of lawsuits, actual lawsuits, or even worse, violence."

The International Islamic News Agency (IINA) reported Sunday that "in a bid to run correct news reporting about Muslims, two American universities have launched a project to teach journalists how to tackle Islam-related issues. ... Titled 'Covering Islam in America,' the project was co-launched earlier this week by Washington State University and the Poynter Institute’s News University.”
It's been one year since CBN News aired the Stakelbeck on Terror special, "The Muslim Brotherhood in America." Now, CBN News has brought back the same panel of experts to examine the Brotherhood's growing power in 2011.
Former FBI special agent John Guandolo and investigative journalist Patrick Poole say the revolutions sweeping across the Arab world have made the Brotherhood stronger than ever, not only in the Middle East, but in America.

Having passed the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I can now say with certainty that something major was missing from all of the ceremonies, the symbolism and the media coverage. It was something that not only captures the meaning of the attacks themselves, but better defines our response to them than any other single thing. It is the face of the age itself, and it is not Osama bin Laden's.

In some ways, merely discussing the legitimacy of Israel as a nation grants a victory to her enemies.

Paris, France - New research suggests there are now more practising Muslims in France than practising Catholics.
While 64 percent of French people describe themselves as Roman Catholic, only 2.9 percent of the population actually practice the Catholic faith. That compares to 3.8 percent of the population who practice the Muslim faith. The research was carried out by the French Institute of Public Opinion on behalf of the Catholic newspaper La Croix.
