During Geert Wilders' Islamic blasphemy trial, which the Dutch judiciary conducted as proxies of the umma (transnational Islam) -- Wilders was acquitted, finally -- Afshin Ellian, an Iranian-born, 46-year-old law professor, poet, columnist and professor of citizenship, social cohesion and multiculturalism at the University of Leiden, gave an interview to Metronieuws. The invaluable Gates of Vienna translated the 2010 interview with Ellian, which contains what I find to be one of the most striking observations of our time:
"If you cannot say that the Islam is a backward religion and that Muhammad is a criminal, then you are living in an Islamic country, my friend, because there you also cannot say such things. I may say Christ was a fag and Mary was a whore, but apparently I should stay off of Muhammad.”
This came to mind when I saw Sunday's Prince Talal Post headline (above):
"Feds question loon who set fire to Muslim world."
Welcome to the umma.
