Hate speech

Paul Weston of Liberty GB found out something about free speech in Britain when he got arrested for quoting Winston Churchill on the subject of Islam.

In the same vein, I wonder what the reaction would be if someone were to hand out leaflets in the street with some of the choicer suras on one side and the same on the reverse, only referring to Muslims rather than unbelievers. What might it reveal about the reality of our hate speech legislation and its application?

For instance, something like this:

And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated! (Koran 2:65)

We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve because they ascribe unto Allah partners, for which no warrant hath been revealed. Their habitation is the Fire, and hapless the abode of the wrong-doers. (3:151)

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (5:33)

O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. (5:51)

Surely, the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are the disbelievers, who will not believe. (8:55)

Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low. (9:29)

O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him). (9:123)

…But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads, Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning. (22:19-22)

When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds… (47:4)

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves… (48:29)

Lo! those who disbelieve, among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings. (98:6)

And ye know of those Muslims, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated!

We shall cast terror into the hearts of Muslims because they deny the Trinity. Their habitation is the Fire, and hapless the abode of the wrong-doers.

The recompense of those who wage war in the cause of Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.

O Jews and Christians, take not Muslims as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them.

Surely, the worst of beasts in the sight of God are the Muslims, who believe.

Fight against the Muslims who believe in Allah and the Last Day….until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.

O non-Muslims! Fight those of the Muslims who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that God is with those who keep their duty (unto Him).

…But as for Muslims, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads, Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning.

When you meet the Muslims, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds…

Non-Muslims are hard against the Muslims and merciful among themselves…

Lo! those who believe in Islam, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings.
