A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Censorship

Posted by Godefroi on July 4, 2007

I discovered a couple days ago that access to Jihad Watch has been banned at my workplace. It’s been classified as a “hate” site. Anyone with a modicum of sense who has read Robert Spencer’s (and Hugh Fitzgerald’s at Dhimmi Watch) postings can see that there is NO intentional incitement to hatred. He cites news sources and Islamic texts together showing that the “terrorism” that’s rampant in the world today is nothing other than the continuation of the jihad that started 1400 years ago, as the first Muslims aggressively expanded their religious and political domain through military raids and outright warfare. Like Mr. Spencer, I will never understand how quoting religious texts and their adherents is tantamount to hate speech. The jihadists are the ones making the religious connection…someone please correct THEM.

Well, it turns out that my recent discovery is not unique, as JW was also banned at several other places at essentially the same time (June 29). I am also not alone in that I can access several other sites, like unindicted co-conspirator CAIR’s site (CAIR is a Hamas front group, for those unaware), and rabid anti-Christian Acharya S.

One of the commenters at JW said this:

Too many mohammadans in high places and places of technical expertise.

This, admittedly, was my first thought as well. The vast majority of the IT folks where I am employed are from the Middle East, which lends a high probability that they are Muslims, and I’m fairly certain that any Muslim with the power to limit access to sites which highlight Islam’s problems would be quick to do so. This perception is unfortunate, but it would not be so if not for the voluminous evidence I’ve seen that almost all Muslim’s are absolutely unwilling to tolerate any scrutiny of their religion. It’s possible, however, that it’s merely a corporate decision made in order to prevent the perception of a hostile work environment, and hence the possibility of a lawsuit. It’s interesting, though, that “anti-Christian” sites are still available while “anti-Muslim” sites are not. For the record, “anti-Muslim” is in quotes because JW is not anti-Muslim, but rather anti-jihad (as am I), hence the organization’s name. It will be interesting going forward to see if the PC forces continue to be so oppressive, and more of the jihad awareness sites become unavailable…not just at workplaces, but at servers, or even whole ISP’s. I hope I’m just being pessimistic, but I’m expecting it to be so.
