End the Shariah War on Women

Og den meget lange følgetekst – Clare Lopez dukkede aldrig op:

This Thursday, May 10th, at 10:00 a.m. in the Bloomberg Room of the National Press Club, the Center for Security Policy launches a national public education campaign to ask America’s leaders to end the real ‘war on women’ — the Shariah War On Women. (

Shariah law oppresses women’s liberties and human rights, denying them their unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness:

* Life: Shariah destroys women’s lives through honor killings, physical abuse, female genital mutilation, and rape. This occurs not only to Muslim women but also to Christian and secular women through acts of kidnapping, imprisonment and murder.

* Liberty: Shariah crushes women’s liberty through censoring free speech, freedom of religion and freedom of association.

* Pursuit of Happiness: Shariah punishes women’s pursuit of happiness by denying equal rights and freedom in marriage, divorce, child custody, education and employment

A panel discussion, moderated by Center President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. and featuring several prominent civil liberties and human rights activists, will launch the national campaign to end the Shariah War On Women. Panelists will include:

Two cheers for Danish justice

Melanie Phillips – 22 April 2012

In the event, Denmark pulled back from the brink. Following my piece here a few days ago about the witch-hunt against the President of the Danish Free Press society Lars Hedegaard, the Danish Supreme Court ruled last Friday that he was not guilty after all of hate speech and racism – the second time he has been acquitted of this charge in a roller-coaster of a case which has stained Denmark’s reputation for justice, free speech and common-sense.

So a victory, certainly — but still only two cheers for Denmark’s legal system.  First, as has been the case throughout this saga, the acquittal – like the previous acquittal and conviction – turned merely on the narrow question of whether the remarks by Hedegaard which were in contention had been made in a private forum. The Supreme Court decided that he had had ‘no intention of disseminating his remarks to a wider audience’, and that therefore no offence had been committed.

Europe’s auto-immune disease

Melanie Phillips – 17 April 2012

Melanie Phillips Blog The Daily Mail

In decadent Europe, freedom of speech is dying. Loudly trumpeted as a ‘human right’ for any attacks on America, Israel, Christians or on the core values of the west, it is swiftly transformed into ‘hate speech’ and the shutters are slammed down on the speaker whenever Islam is in the frame.

Lars Hedegaard is President of the Danish Free Press Society, which is devoted to defending freedom of expression — particularly against the threat from radical Islam to extinguish it on the spurious grounds of ‘Islamophobia’.  With no sense of irony, Denmark is trying its damnedest to shut Hedegaard up on precisely those grounds.

The Prosecutor Lies in Wait

by Lars Hedegaard – April 23, 2012

Article 266b, under which I was charged, remains unchanged. Thus, we still have no right to refer to truth if we are indicted under this article.

I am satisfied that the Supreme Court has delivered a verdict in accordance with the evidence given in lower and superior court. The prosecution had this evidence before it decided to press charges so I cannot understand why it went ahead.

The prosecutor has burdened the courts and the taxpayers needlessly for more than two years.

This judgment is not necessarily a victory for free speech. Article 266b, under which I was charged, remains unchanged. It remains a disgrace to any civilised society and is an open invitation to frivolous trials. Thus, we still have no right to refer to truth if we are indicted under this article.

Free Speech Found Guilty by Europe

by Soeren Kern – April 23, 2012

The ruling showed that while Judaism and Christianity can be disparaged with impunity, speaking the truth about Islam is subject to swift and hefty legal penalties. The Supreme Court stressed that the substance of the charges — public criticism of Islam – is still a crime punishable by imprisonment. Under Danish law, it is immaterial whether a statement is true or false. All that is needed for a conviction is for someone to feel offended.

Lars Hedegaard, the president of the Danish Free Press Society, has been acquitted by the Danish Supreme Court on charges of “hate speech” for critical comments he made about Islam.

The verdict, however represents only a partial victory for free speech in a Europe that is being stifled by politically correct restrictions on free speech, particularly on issues related to Islam.

Infidel Hedegaard avoids prosecution for Islamic blasphemy in Denmark. For now.

Andrew G. Bostom – April 21, 2012

Intrepid Danish journalist, historian and President of the Free Press Society Lars Hedegaard, has been acquitted unanimously by a panel of seven Supreme Court justices.  led by Chief Justice Børge Dahl. Hedegaard was accused of intentionally denigrating Muslims in breach of Article 266b of the Danish Penal Code, which states,

Whoever publicly or with the intent of public dissemination issues a pronouncement or other communication by which a group of persons are threatened, insulted or denigrated due to their race, skin color, national or ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation is liable to a fine or incarceration for up to two years.

Danish Supreme Court Acquits Hedegaard

by Ann Snyder  •  Apr 21, 2012

On April 20, 2012 in a 7-0 decision, the Danish Supreme Court acquitted Lars Hedegaard of violating Article 266(b), the infamous “hate speech” provision of the Danish penal code.

Hedegaard’s case has been winding its way through the courts for some time now.  Readers will recall that he was first acquitted and then retried and convicted—a decision he appealed to the country’s highest court.

Lars Man Standing, Final Score

By Mark Steyn – April 22, 2012

I’ve written previously about Lars Hedegaard of the Danish Free Press Society, my host in Copenhagen in 2010. Lars was charged, acquitted, re-charged, convicted and fined 5,000 kroner for remarks about Islam made during a conversation in his own home. He appealed to the Danish Supreme Court, and late on Friday they struck down his conviction 7–0.

Justice in Denmark: Supreme Court dismisses Lars Hedegaard’s racism and hate speech conviction

20 April 2012 – Jerry Gordon

There is sweet justice in Denmark. We received news that the Danish Supreme Court acquitted Lars Hedegaard, President of the Danish Free Press Society of Prosecutor charges of ‘racism’ and “hate speech under Article 266b of the penal code that were upheld in a conviction and fine by the Eastern Superior Court in May 2011.  The headline of the Supreme Court  press release was “Dismiss the case on insulting and degrading statements about Muslims “  This is a major victory for free speech in Denmark and the EU.  This legal victory in Denmark should also be welcome news to the Hon. Geert Wilders in The Netherlands and hopefully useful news for Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff in her legal proceedings in Austria. The opinion of the seven justices convened by the Danish Supreme Court was posted on the website of the Danish Supreme Court. Hedegaard indicated that he will have an English translation for us later today along with observations about the decision. As we can appreciate it he has been swamped with congratulatory phone calls and interviews by the Danish press. In our last post on  Hedegaard’s Supreme Court case heard last Friday, we noted:

Lars Hedegaard – The Scene at Yesterday’s Danish Supreme Court Hearing

Jerry Gordon – 14 April 2012

We had the occasion today to speak with Lars Hedegaard, President of the Danish Free Press Society (DFPS) about the circumstances behind yesterday’s hearing before the Danish Supreme Court.  A mutual Canadian colleague and friend, Bjorn Larsen,  flew to Copenhagen to observe the proceedings. Larsen is a Board Member of both the Canadian and International Free Press Society. He sent us some photos of Hedegaard and his counsel, Karoly Németh and DFPS board member, Jette Dali.  Németh escaped from his native Hungary as a teenager during the 1956 Revolt and has become a brilliant advocate in his adopted country. Németh arrived at the Supreme Court on his own power. He rode a bicycle. Larsen said in an email that the entire proceeding lasted approximately three hours. The prosecutor spoke for almost two hours, Nemeth for 40 minutes and Hedegaard for approximately 10 minutes. […]
