Michigan imam calls for Sharia restrictions on free speech
Jihad Watch ^ | 6/17/2014 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 06/18/2014 2:17:25 AM PDT by markomalley

This is not the first time that al-Husainy has called for restrictions on the freedom of speech. In 2012 he declared: “They should put a law not to insult a spiritual leader.” Al-Husainy is also a virulently antisemitic supporter of Hizballah. With the President of the United States having declared the “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” and many in the mainstream media eagerly practicing self-censorship to appease Islamic supremacists, he probably sees this as his best chance to impose Sharia speech restrictions upon the U.S.

I’m not in favor of book burnings, but to use the burning of any book to impose free speech restrictions is to destroy a foundation of free society and bring tyranny to the U.S.

“(UPDATED) Qurans burned at Dearborn mosque; imams consider new law,” by Aysha Jamali, Press & Guide, June 17, 2014 (thanks to all who sent this in):

DEARBORN — Several Qurans were burned in front of a mosque at about noon Tuesday in possible connection with anti-Islam Pastor Terry Jones’ expected visit to the city Saturday.

The three copies of the Quran, Muslims’ holy book believed to be the word of God, were set on fire and left to burn at the curb in front of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center, 15332 W. Warren Ave.

The imam of the mosque, Sheikh Husham Al-Husainy, confirmed that the incident occurred and that police are investigating….

Why are they investigating? It isn’t illegal to burn a book in the U.S. — at least not yet.

Imam wants new law banning burning of holy books

Several attorneys also met with the imams at Thursday’s meeting. Al-Husainy said they helped with legal advice in his plan for a new law making it illegal to burn or desecrate holy books.

“We want all of the religions to cooperate with us to bring respect to the word of God, whether the Quran, Bible, or Torah,” he said.

He said he understands it will be a challenge.

“But again, a journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step,” he said.

He and the imams will collect signatures of supporters before addressing the City Council to inquire about making a new city ordinance.

Al-Husainy said it’s a duty to protect the divine word. He said he worries that a nation where the words of God are burned in disrespect will not be blessed anymore.

Several attempts to legally prohibit the desecration of the American flag have failed in the U.S. for reasons that it violates rights to free speech.

Al-Husainy needs to show his conviction and leave the US for good.

Ayup. There's your problem, right there.

Who decides what is "Holy"?

From what I have seen, to different folks that runs the gamut from The Holy Bible to the owner's manual for a 67 Chevelle.

Its only since Obama has been in my White House that Islamic imams and others have thought it OK to destroy the Constitutional rights of Americans...

I don’t remember much of that sort of un-American activity before that...

‘...not to insult a spiritual leader.’ What kind of spirits are we talking about? The spirits of Islam are from Satan. Not to insult the spirits of hell? Give me a break!

Muzzies burn their tattered worn-out Korans all the time.

The Imam may have marked these for destruction but put them to PR use instead. False flag to da max!

“But again, a journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step,” he said.”

We must never forget that the Islamic enemies of liberty are boundlessly patient and persistent. The OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) is the largest voting block in the UN, and they are determined to make it illegal worldwide to in any way insult Islam. They will try to impose these laws on America through treaties, and at the moment they have vigorous allies in the White House.

I have no doubt that the excessive political-correctness we are seeing on college campuses and in government institutions is part of this initiative. The very concept of “hate crimes”, followed quickly by “hate speech” will lead inexorably to making it a crime to in any way speak ill of Islam and its so-called prophet.

Think of the destination that this journey of 1,000 miles is leading to.

“They should put a law not to insult a spiritual leader.”

Insulting spiritual leaders, or more specifically leaders of any kind, is a recreational sport in America.

Well OIC cannot be here, there or everywhere and there will still be those who will not put up with the OIC’s nonsense.

This idiot is such a fitting metaphor for so many things out of balance in the nation today, one hardly knows where to begin.

A first reaction is to remain silent, at first, all the while watching to take note of those who agree with him. It's a pretty good test of the 'man in the street's' rudimentary knowledge of the Constitution and our nation's history.

What could be more obvious? Everywhere such a policy is enacted ceases to be America, and must be retaken.

It's time to reinstitute "the rail" and the Tar and Feathers.
