Freedom to Insult

Posted by rantingkraut on March 19, 2006

Pondering the arguments about the Muhammad cartoons I had a look at the Muslim Action Committee’s website. They are also staging a demo in London on the 25th. Judging by the banners which you can download from their site they are either much more liberal than you would think (considering the rest of the website) or they have a very poor sense of logic.
One of the banners reads: “Freedom to insult = Freedom of speech”; another: “Prophet Muhammad(S) is the founder of ‘freedom of speech’”. Now, If my memory of primary school algebra doesn’t deceive me then A = B and B = C imply A = C. In good logic then: “Prophet Muhammad(S) is the founder of ‘freedom to insult’”. Good to know.
