GENEVA (AP) - Islamic proposals to ban criticism of religion, which have gathered strength since the publication of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad two years ago, threaten to derail an already troubled U.N. anti-racism conference planned for next year.

Well, whatever. These guys who are complaining have eliminated the publication of images and words offensive to some Moslems through he simple expedient of cutting off the heads of those they think might have done so.

I strongly encourage them to just stay at home and leave us alone.

Besides, they are all all apostates and hypocrites themselves and should just kill each other as dictated by the Koran.

This is the same EU that just banned screenings of Fitna. Somehow I don’t believe they really care about free speach, esp. if it could be construed as “insulting” to islam...

There. That's better.

Any so-called “religion” that hates dogs is sick and twisted.
