It’s a pretty interesting freedom of speech case in Canada.

Was Steyn posting here at FR? Or did they just come her to find evidence of people correctly pointing out that the sodomites are breaking God’s laws?

I was sent a FReepmail today that one of my comments posted a long while ago was entered into evidence against Steyn. So be it. I am not going to back down on my opinion. The TRUTH is that the Muslims are going to win unless we fight back within the US as well as overseas.

I am irritated that I have been singled out. I adore Steyn. He is right. Is that something to be ashamed of, or Americans, is that something to be proud of?

If we are done fighting because of Canada, would someone please let me know?

Geesh, I am PO’ed Really, would Steyn want me to lie?

Andrew Coyne (or the plaintiff's lawyer) gets a few things wrong here. Coyne writes...

Jospeph’s got Habib reading through the comments on the Free Republic site… They’re foul. To Steyn’s unfortunate reference to Mulsims “breeding like mosquitoes,” a commenter replies: “Great analogy! Let’s get out the DDT…”

But in the article in question, Steyn doesn't say that. Instead, he quotes a Norwegian Imam, Mullah Krekar, who says: "Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes".

http://blog.macleans.ca/2008/06/05/liveblogging-the-macleans-trial-iv-habib-and-habib-not/

10:21 AM As indeed they prove.

Naiyer Habib (one of the complainants) now on the stand. From India, came to Canada in 1973. Lived in Saskatchewan until 2004, then moved to Abbotsford, B.C. (A British Columbia Muslim, at last!) He’s a medical doctor, professor of cardiology. How old? “I don’t want to say that,” he says coyly. Eventually they drag it out of him: 67.

President of Islamic Association of Saskatchewan for many years. Co-founder of Muslims for Peace and Justice, formed after 2001 to counter Islamophobia. On the national board of the Canadian Islamic Congress (hence the Elmasry connection).

Joseph is now asking him about the Free Republic blog. How did he come across it. Well, shorttly after reading the Steyn article in October 2006, which he found “concerning,” he went on the internet to “look for any impact,” ie he Googled it. He found what he was looking for on the Free Republic: the Steyn article, with comments from readers underneath, to the effect that Muslims should be “eradicated,” that they should not be here, etc.

We’re working off a printout of a Google search performed today. Porter is up, pointing out that Google searches produce different results at different times. Can’t say with certainty that what he saw in October 2006 is the same as it is now. Seems a stretch, and it is: overruled.

Argh. I’m out of power. Bear with me, until I can arrange to get near a power outlet. (SORRY - can’t be helped. There’s one power outlet in the whole room, and if you’re not sitting next to it…)

We’re on a break, so let me try to catch up…

Jospeph’s got Habib reading through the comments on the Free Republic site… They’re foul. To Steyn’s unfortunate reference to Mulsims “breeding like mosquitoes,” a commenter replies: “Great analogy! Let’s get out the DDT…” Another: “Oh, those Muzzies. They’ll get you with or without your help.” Another: “If you can’t kill the enemy at least you can piss on their God.” Another: “I will die before I have that filthy fraud of a religion forced on me.”

It occurs to me: I hope the BC Human Rights code makes exception for reports of their own proceedings. Otherwise I’m in trouble, since the code makes no allowance for reporting on a matter of public interest…

Back to the foulness. “I have this feeling that I will not live to die of natural causes, and Islam will be a factor.” Of Muslims in Gaza: “Four good nukes will solve the problem.”

Anyway. Habib says he found all this “humiliating… dishonouring… questioning our morality.” Of the original article itself, he said he found the cover shot of women in burkhas “demonizing of Islam,” that it would “make people feel that this what will happen to you if you do not wake up.” The text, he said, was “discriminating, racial, full of hate.” He objects, inter alia, to its use of a quotation from Libyan dictator Muammar Khadahfy, who “has no credibility.” We’ll come back to that.

The article, he says, makes things “dangerous for us.” His wife, who wears the hijab, has been “taunted, told to go back home.” The article “puts fuel on the fire” of a volatile situation, post Sept. 11, although he concedes he knows of no physical attacks resulting from it.

I find the Canadian system of jurisprudence humiliating, unfair, silly, small minded, and odious. Some days, because of their kangaroo courts, I feel so bad, I can't get out of bed or play my accordion.

This crap would have some validity if his wife were treated half as bad in Canada for wearing a hijab as a Western woman would be treated in Saudi Arabia for wearing a Western dress and a cross or Star of David.

“For those who haven’t been keeping up with this...they have pretty much declared the entire Internet “admissible evidence” of hatred against Muslims.’

Well...if I were Steyn’s attorney. I would flood the discovery with the thousands of Islamist websites which show videos of terrorists killing our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan...the Yahoo chat rooms for Islamists and the Islamist terror recruiting sites in response!

I would then ask the Muslim dude if those are hateful and should be taken off the ‘internet’.

This lawsuit should be thrown out on the frivolous nature alone.
