The legal advocacy group Lawfare Project has released a 4-minute video that cites examples of the Islamist threat to free speech.

The clip, titled “Your Free Speech at Risk,” lists instances when criticism and discussion of radical Islam was censored, suppressed or prohibited. The video explicitly states, “Virtually every religion is open to conversation, except Islam.”

“Talk about Islam, particularly militant Islam, and it’s no longer a conversation,” says the narrator. “It’s met instead with censorship, intimidation, lawsuits and even violence.”

Among the incidents highlighted in the clip is the crusade by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to suppress free speech in the United States. In spite of the First Amendment, conversations in the U.S. about Islam “have been stifled too,” the narrator states. According to The  Lawfare Project, journalists were sued in an attempt to be intimidated into silence after they wrote about the Islamic Society of Boston – a mosque affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, attended by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and founded by an al-Qaeda operative.

The Lawfare Project brought attention to efforts by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) to impose blasphemy laws on the West. It was additionally noted that references to Islam and Jihad have been removed from FBI training manuals.

The video concludes with a warning that global Islamist supremacists are attempting to create “a society where freedom of speech is exchanged for fear of it…Either we have a conversation about this now, or we may never have it at all.”

  • Looking back it seems the first step was for the media to replace the word ‘terrorists’ with the word ‘militants’. Political correctness has crossed the border into moral equivalence between a legit state like Israel and a terrorist group like Hamas, ISIL, Taliban, al Qaeda, Hezbollah. The Taliban murdered about 150 pupils and teachers in Pakistan this week. ISIL has murdered thousands of innocent civilians. In Gaza 160+ children died digging Hamas terror tunnels, according to The Journal of Palestine Studies, summer 2012 issue. These groups are not ‘militants’.

    A conversation, or we respond in kind with our own censorship, intimidation, lawsuits and even violence. I’m definitely not trying to incite anyone the point is Islamists are not interested in a conversation anyway especially when they use lies and disregard facts and logic. Conversation can be had with those who aren’t flying the black flag, peaceful Muslims, nation states, Europe, lots of parties willing to chat but maybe we shouldn’t waste our time dreaming of an improbable dialogue with people who want to kill us.
