Jihad Against Free Speech

The UN’s Jihad Against Free Speech
In a crushing blow to the freedom of speech worldwide, the United Nations Human Rights Council last Thursday approved a resolution calling upon member states to provide legal “protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general.”

Free Speech Tried, Convicted, and Fined in Finland 
Finnish court that has convicted Helsinki Councilman Jussi Halla-aho of "defamation of religion" -- i.e., blasphemy about Islam -- for criticizing Mohammed/Islam on the councilman's (Finnish) blog Scripta.
What did Halla-aho say? He called Mohammed, a man who married a six-year-old, infamously consumating (if you can call it that) the marriage when the child was nine, a pedophile, and "insulted" the lawlessnes prevalent in Somali immigrant culture.
Finnish population for 2008 is 5,244,749, including some 40 000 Muslims -- less than one percent.
The District court in Helsinki fined the City Councilman to pay 30 day fines amounting to 330 euros. This judgement by the Helsinki District Court violates the very essence of what “Freedom of Speech” stands for; the right to say out loud, that, what people do not want to hear.
