Pakistani Foreign Minister on anti-Muslim video: America should ‘rethink’ free speech
The Daily Caller ^ | Sept. 24, 2012 | Jessica Stanton

Posted on 09/23/2012 10:45:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

In the aftermath of violent protests across the Middle East and the slaughter of four American diplomats, Pakistan’s foreign minister believes the United States should “rethink” its commitment to freedom of speech.

“It is not good enough to say, ‘It’s free speech, it should be allowed,’” Hina Rabbani Khar said during an interview with CNN on September 20. ”I think if this does provoke action against American citizens or Americans anywhere else in the world, then maybe we do need to rethink how much freedom is okay.”

Khar said nations should come together in a “civilized manner,” to address the concept of freedom speech and how far it extends.

“I think what we need is more tolerance for each other’s views. What we need is to be able to give mutual space for us to be able to demonstrate what is culturally, religiously important to us and not to hold each other — not to judge each other for that,” Khar said.

“We really we have to be sensitive to religious sensitivities.”

Perhaps Pakistan should reconsider eating and breathing.

We should make a million insults and let Muzzies grow up and accept the rest of the world isn’t in their death cult.

OK, I’ve re-thought it. Now I’m re-thinking the supposed immorality of blowing our enemies away.

Pakistan should rethink its adherence to Islam - any belief system that’s so insecure and so fragile that a third-rate youtube video is a threat to it is a belief system that’s as thin as Obama’s resume.

How many Mexican Catholics shall we send to Pakistan so that the Pakis can show their religious tolerance to the world? We have around 15 million extra.

This is perfectly acceptable to our Muslim Usurper, however, along the lines of junking our Constitution, can we rethink this whole restriction about not gassing and cremating an entire religion?

I'll bet real money that we can improve on the 2500 units per hour of Treblinka...

The time is long past that we should “re-think” our foreign aid programs. Cut them off. Now. They also need to go home, where the custom is “more comfortable” for them & they, naturally, have a say in the laws & customs..
I almost spit soda all over my keyboard. Civilized? Seriously?

Yes Imam Jakass, that’s the way we feel about our
Sacred Constitution, so get used to it.

I think what we need is more tolerance for each other’s views

At that point, logic got up and left the room.

Yes, indeed. And they’ve already discussed it at the UN. They have a UN Resolution that they’re dying to sign and this global display of staged rage was to hasten the signing. A small army need to crawl through every paper that Bolshevik signed when he’s ousted this election.

Appease murdering savages?

Islam really needs a Christ (their putting Jesus below a pedophile and assasin is their biggest sin) to bring their cult out of the Dark Ages.

Methinks there’s more to this than what’s visible on its face. A few weeks ago our dear leader made statements that we should consider revising the First Amendment. Now Nancy Pelosi says that if the dems win back the House, she’ll initiate a Constitutional amendment to void Heller. Now we have the State Department playing ads all over Pakistan blaming our First Amendment for all the ills causing rioting and unrest,

I’m starting to believe that these episodes are an orchestrated attack to back door us into revising the First Amendment.

Our dear leader will come out (if he wins re-election) and say that we must give up some of our free speech, not because of his beliefs (avoiding any blame or responsibility), but due to world opinion - in spite of the fact that this First Amendment, for more than 225 years has kept the government at bay, has kept the government from imposing religious beliefs on any of us, has been one of the key components (when joined by the Second Amendment) that allow us to enjoy our freedoms.

Thoughts?

“It is not good enough to say, ‘It’s free speech, it should be allowed,’” Hina Rabbani Khar said

He makes a good point and I fully agree.

What is good enough to say, though, is that free speech is not something to be allowed, it is something that cannot be prohibited. Other than that, go hump a goat, Khar.

This is rich, coming from a country that routinely tosses Christians in jail for “blasphemy” against a “prophet” and a “holy book” they don’t believe in. Islamic “tolerance” is strictly a one-way street.

“America should ‘rethink’ free speech”

Naw, we’ll keep our free speech thank you very much douche bag.

I’m seriously rethinking my ability to engage in civil discourse regarding these cavemen... But then again, let them continue to run their fork-tongued mouths and piss off even more Americans.

There will be a reckoning, and it gets closer by the day.

You completely missed the point of my entire comment. I was pointing out the hypocrisy of islamists not respecting Christianity in their lands.
