Regarding the "crime” of blaspheming Islam’s prophet, thus spake the Islamic Yoda of our generation, circa April, 2006:
"The jurists on the whole tend to take a rather mild view of this offense.”
Professor Carl Brockelmann (1868-1956), the renowned scholar of Semitic languages, and arguably the foremost Orientalist of his generation, made these candid observations in 1939 about the Sharia’s injunctions pertaining to penal law in general, and so-called "blasphemy and apostasy,” specifically—Islamic Law being "valid” eternally, and all too widely applied in Brockelmann’s era, till now.
Will Lech Walesa intercede with the King of Saudi Arabia in defence of Hamza Kashgari awaiting in custody for blasphemy trial?
The signature of ACTA by European countries does not mean the deal is done, needs to be ratified by the European Parliament.
They will vote on june 2012 to either ratify or reject ACTA. Please read more how to act and call your MPs, tell them tovote against ratification. This would disarm ACTA in Europe.

Interview with Kamal Fahmi, director of Set My People Free (10th of December 2011, Stockholm).
What is the purpose of today’s event?
Today, actually is the international day of human rights. This is one of the reasons we chose this day, and the second one also, that it is that we give the Nobel prize, so there is a lot of media attention, and what we want to bring the attention of the people to is the apostasy law in Islam, which not many people know about. Islam is a one way religion. If you are a Muslim you can not change your belief. And this is very sad that this is happening in the 21st century.

EuropeNews has now reached 50.000 posts, marking more than four years of uninterrupted service in basically the same form as we started
The fundamental aim of EuropeNews remains the same as well, namely providing a compact overview of news that matter. Also unchanged is our slogan:
"No Tolerance for Intolerance – No Apology for Being Free”.
The Paradox of Tolerance
The first part of our slogan derives from the Paradox of Tolerance, that a person or a group taking pride in his supreme tolerance might in fact be profoundly intolerant, not least against those he judges to be "intolerant”, be it in the form of "bigoted”, "discriminating” or even "racist”. The classical notion that discriminating is wisdom and a virtue, not a sin, seems all but forgotten.
