    True

  2. John Sutton Says:

    Whilst a significant number of its followers threaten, with violence, our right to free speech Islam will continue attract justified loathing. Its adherents need to realise that many Europeans would be more open to Islamic values if we were allowed to discuss them publicly. Instead, we apply a high degree of self censorship in case we inadvertently offend the religious rage-boys.

    Hirsi Ali is all too familiar with advocating free speech in the Muslim world. Were it not for the efforts of many, she would have likely expired long ago. Read about here here: http://www.samharris.org/site/security_trust/ayaan_hirsi_ali

    She has a lot more to say on the subject than just the short (true) passage above.
