David Letterman gets it exactly right
by Adam Turner – October 3, 2011
Kudos to American television comedian David Letterman! On June 5, 2011, Letterman smiled and drew his finger across his own throat on his CBS program “Late Show with David Letterman” to celebrate the U.S. military’s reported killing of Ilyas Kashmiri, an Islamist terrorist who apparently was the head of Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami and a senior al-Qaeda leader. Kashmiri reportedly was one of the leading organizers of the deadly November 2008 Mumbai attacks in India, which killed 164 innocent people and wounded at least 308. He was also recently indicted in U.S. federal court for conspiring with other terrorists to plan a Mumbai-style attack in Denmark, directed at the newspaper Jyllands-Posten, the newspaper that had published the infamous Mohammed cartoons. For good measure, Letterman also insulted Osama bin Laden during the same broadcast.
Geert Wilders’ Acquittal: An Important First Step for Free Speech in the Netherlands
by Debra L. Feuer • Sep 24, 2011
On June 23rd, the Amsterdam District Court acquitted Dutch MP Geert Wilders, bringing to a close a nearly two-year ordeal. The decision was a clear victory for Wilders who had faced both fines and imprisonment for charges of “group defamation” and “incitement to hatred and to discrimination” on the basis of religion and race under article 137c and 137d of the Dutch Penal Code (DPC).
“I am delighted with this ruling,” said Wilders. “It is a victory, not only for me, but for all the Dutch people. Today is a victory for freedom of speech.”

Threats to Free Speech: A Tale of Two Terry Joneses
by David J. Rusin • Oct 14, 2011
Within the span of several days, two news items concerning two Terry Joneses helped illuminate the different paths by which speech critical of Islam can be gradually extinguished.
The pastor. Lawyers for one Terry Jones, the Florida-based minister who oversaw a Koran burning in March and handed global jihadists an excuse to rampage, were in a Detroit courtroom on October 6, trying to reverse a half-year-old decision curbing his right to speak and protest.

Why the Government should not block our move to protect free speech
By Edward Leigh MP – October 08, 2011
For centuries, men and women in Britain have fought for the right to express in words what is in their hearts. Freedom of speech is, perhaps, our most precious civil liberty after the right to life itself.
But there is a widely held concern that civil liberties such as freedom of speech are being eroded. Many blame the last government for this. Even the current Leader of the Opposition admitted that the Labour government was “draconian” on civil liberties.
