A Paris-based publishing house has revised its decision to publish a French version of the German bestseller “Der Islamische Faschismus” (The Islamic Fascism). Written by German-Egyptian author Hamed Abdel-Samad, the book was due to hit the French bookstores in September. Piranha Edition reportedly changed its mind after this month’s ISIS-inspired terror attack in Nice that killed 84 people and injured more than 300.
You can't criticize Muslims; they'll kill you!
Saying anything remotely negative about Islam in the Muslim world is a certain death sentence. The police and the judicial system don't need to get involved. The halaal neighbours will do the deed.
But now, this wretched censorship is afflicting the Western world.
Given the almost omnipresent threat of violence inside the Muslim majority countries, we can give up on our hopes of hearing any substantial criticism of Islamist theology from within the Muslim World. But what is happening to Muslim dissenters in the West is no less sinister. The violent campaign to shut down any opposition in the Muslim World is complimented in the West by the activism of the Left.
Yes, that "progressive" Left.
Nothing could be more ironic than a publisher refusing to publish a book titled “Is Islam a form of Fascism?” having being deterred by the fear of organised violence and death. The tragic case of Hamed Abdel-Samad’s book in France is another milestone in Europe’s piecemeal surrender to Radical Islam.
