Offend Christians, tough. Offend Muslims, they sue

It is so amazingly un-American and un-democratic that I am shocked Italy would even consider the thought of hearing this case. I am very disappointed.

Oriana Fallaci's trial started today in Italy. Her charge? She wrote a book that had a few paragraphs which offended Islam. Oh? No one sued Adel Smith, president of the Muslim Union of Italy, when he called for the elimination of all Christian reminders in Italy! THAT is offensive.

Michelle Malkin has her finger on the pulse of this story. So does Robert Spencer. I wonder, where are all the free-speech activists? Where are all the women's rights activists? Where are all the media (she is a journalist)?

Another case in point. Korosh, an Iranian from Love America First, has shown us what it is truly like to fight for women's rights. Have we forgotten so quickly that not even 100 years ago we were not allowed to vote, to own property, to get a divorce, etc.? Many of these rights are new. Some of them are certainly abused, but that is the price we must pay for freedom.

After all, freedom has never been free. There has alway been a price to pay. Should the women of Iran suffer in silence because we don't want to think about them? I say, "NO." Please call your Congressperson and Senators. Express your concern. Speak up for those whom have no voice...yet. God bless you.
