Instead of condeming and punishing the perpetrators of this heinous offense, the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton says freedom of speech is an ideal that Washington upholds even when the results denigrate some. "Our country does have a long tradition of free expression, which is enshrined in our Constitution and in our law. We do not stop individuals from expressing their views no matter how distasteful they may be."
Yes Mrs. Clinton. We know waht your "Freedom of Speech" is doing to Bradley Manning, ex US army soldier who is languishing in jail on the suspicion of sharing details of your "War on Terror" in Iraq, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protesters in your country are greeted with tear gas, batons and pepper sprays. While "reverend" Pastor Terry Jones, who openly burnd Holy Quran and arranged the screening of this blasphemous movie, roams around freely.
Last year, your government stripped Wiki Leaks of its ability to raise money via PayPal, MasterCard and Visa. The CEO of the whistle blower website; Julian Assange has taken asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London fearing arrest by the Swedish authorities and a subsequent deportation by Washington. His fault is that he exposed inhumane acts like assassination, sabotage, espionage and black operations your "freedom-loving" government carries out through the large network of its embassies and consulates all over. God bless your government and your idea of freedom.
After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the west considered Islam as its most serious threat. The west, especially the US and the fake Zionist regime, have intensified Islamophobia with the pretext of September 11, 2001, that highly dubious event.
Meanwhile, the Islamic world has started a new chapter with the Islamic awakening auguring a fresh era. Yet the oppressors of the world, who are losing their strangleholds one by one, resort to ignominious and mean acts to lengthen their dirty life. The recent blasphemous movie by the US and Zionism was done as per this agenda.
The spectacular spread of Islam has angered the enemies of Islam so that they try through insulting moves to humiliate the ideas and beliefs of Muslims. The last example of these biased moves is the production of an insulting movie against the messenger of mercy and peace, Prophet Mohammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam)
The film was released by the anti-Islamic cultureless American pastor Terry Jones.
Sam Bacile, the scrip writer and director of the movie which is named "The Innocence of Muslims" is a Jewish American from California working in the Estate sector, but Terry Jones has assumed the screening of the movie.
Sam Bacile has told the American daily Wall Street Journal that over 100 Jews had delivered 5 million dollars for the movie. The film has 60 actors and actresses with 45 crowd scene.
It was once screened privately at an empty hall in Hollywood and it was planned to be displayed on the anniversary of September 11 in Terry Jones Church but the display was cancelled.
Despite cancelling the official screening of the movie, some parts of the film were published on the internet and since this was carried out by the Egyptian Immigrant Copts, the first reaction against the film was made by Egypt and then Libya, Yemen and other countries.
Now that the US regime has faced the wrath of Muslims, it tries to acquit itself from this abominable act. Nonetheless, the US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has commented about the film "The Innocence of Muslims" as, “The US never deprives its citizens from expressing their viewpoints.” She means Washington supports screening of the movie which insults the sanctities of about 1.5 billion Muslims. Therefore, production of such a film and other anti-Islamic measures can not be done without the green light of the White House officials.
History bears witness that during the life of Prophet Mohammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam), the pagan Arabs carried out silly works to prevent the spread of this divine religion. Now, too, another chapter of paganism has opened and the enemies of Islam through fascinating and humanitarian slogans like freedom, human rights and the like target Islam and the holy Prophet with the ugliest insults. Freedom of expression, as one of genuine slogans of Islam, has turned into a tool for the west to blaspheme Islam. Could these offensive acts be called freedom of expression or freedom of insult?
Another question: Is this freedom of expression an unlimited right? Can one question and insult every belief in the name of freedom of expression? If so, why do the thinkers who raise ambiguities on the Holocaust face harassment and persecution?
Freedom of expression means that a person can freely choose any kind of political, social and religious thought he likes without being under pressure for his choice. Freedom of expression is the manifestation of freedom of idea and means free expression of thoughts and beliefs.
This right is one of the rights which have been stressed in all human rights declarations and has been supported in the laws of many countries.
Article 19 of Human Rights Declaration asserts that everyone enjoys the right of freedom of expression and idea and the right stressed that no one should fear in his ideas.
Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ICCPR says: 1- No one can be disturbed for his ideas. 2- Everyone enjoys freedom of expression and this right includes freedom of study and publication of information and thoughts regardless of borders whether verbally or in written form or any other form.
But paragraph 3 of article 19 of the ICCPR stipulates that: freedom of expression requires specific rights and responsibilities. A- Respect of dignity and right of others. B- Preservation of security, order, health and public ethics. Paragraph 13 of the US human rights convention under the title “Freedom of Thought and Expression” does not consider it absolute and limits it in case of aggression to the dignity of individuals.
Therefore we see that while accepting freedom of expression as a basic right for human being, the international laws have taken certain limits into consideration.
So freedom of expression can not justify production and broadcasting of a diabolical film that insults the sanctities of a great divine religion.
Meanwhile, the Zionists' involvement in producing the 5 million dollar movie revealed their deep hatred and rancour against Muslims; with this mischievous act they showed their anger towards spread of Islam, the teachings of the holy Quran and the ever luminous image of the messenger of mercy and divine values Prophet Mohammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam).
Today the western world's desperation and frustration vis-a-vis Islam is clearly shown by producing such sacrilegious movies. Islam is the religion of logic and ration and invites everybody to argue on the basis of rational reasoning. But the west, instead of giving logical response to this peaceful invitation, has always adopted the path of insult and desecration. Desecration of Prophet Mohammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and targeting the most genuine ideas of Muslims indicate the expedited decline of the western civilization and the criminal Zionist regime.
However the important point ignored by the US and Zionist leaders is that this act will boomerang and it is they who will suffer the most; and the Islamic world will benefit from the sordid act of the modern pagans, en shallah. This event will even lead to the acquaintance of non-Muslims with the radiant image of Islam and especially its prophet.
The enemies of Islam who once insulted the holy Quran and another day insulted the most holy personality will further help unify and consolidate Muslims. Although Muslims from different denominations have several commonalities such as: faith in the One and Only God, the holy Quran, the holy Ka’aba and Prophet Mohammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam).
Therefore we see that Shiites and Sunnis in all parts of the world have made strongly rallied against the silly film.
Day by day the image of the US and the Zionist regime become more hated by human beings especially Muslims.
Muslims call on international circles and especially the Islamic Cooperation Organization and the United Nations to take effective measures against this sordid crime.
