How Sharia Kills Free Speech

Al Qaeda‘s English language magazine Inspire, in its latest edition, has expressed the jihad terror organization’s outrage over the “Innocence of Muslims” video trailer, an amateurish production which merely depicted some of the less salutary aspects of the Muslim prophet Muhammad’s biography, based upon the sacralized Islamic sources.
These threatening statements appear on p. 4:
O Muslims, the film produced in America which insults our Messenger Muhammad comes in the chain of the crusade attacks on Islam. In response to these consecutive assaults, the Muslim ummah revolted in honor of their noble Messenger.
The plot of the enemies backfired and became a disgrace and shame on them, a penalty for their insults on the status of the Prophets, violation of the sacred lands and trespassing the boundaries of war ethics. Meanwhile, the status of our Messenger remains high and honorable. No insult could ever tarnish him. Whoever hates him is cut off from success and prosperity in this world and the Hereafter… We affirm that defending the honor of the Prophet is an inevitable obligation in Islam upon the Muslim ummah, every individual as per his capability… We call upon our brothers in the West to fulfill their Islamic obligation. They are obliged to defend the Prophet, for they are more capable of crushing the enemy at his heart.
The violent nature of those threats is made explicit in imagery featured on pp. 14-15, entitled, “Wanted Dead…”
The burning desire to impose Sharia blasphemy law — which mandates the killing of those exercising free speech critical of Islam — is hardly limited to Al Qaeda. Mainstream, institutional Islam, including the creed’s mainstream religious organizational representatives in America, share the same totalitarian goal of destroying our nation’s — and Western civilization’s — bedrock liberty, freedom of speech.
