Incitement? Or the Word of Allah?

Fouad Belkacem, the spokesman for Sharia4Belgium, has been remanded in custody for incitement to violence. But Mr. Belkacem’s lawyers maintain that he was simply reciting from the Koran, and therefore his words were protected by the right to practice his religion freely.

Many thanks to Michael Laudahn for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Here are articles about the Belkacem case, in Dutch and French.

So, we'll find out next Friday whether Belgium has become a lunatic state or whether they are still a member of the sane, and civilised Western world. I suspect if the correct decision is reached, and this creature is incarcerated for a year, the consequences will be profound for us who oppose islam; ie. our views will be vindicated and there will be less opportunity for prosecutions for telling the truth about it.

This is a very important question. When I asked the HRC how they view 4.34 in the koran inciting domestic violence, they didn't even bother to reply. Meanwhile taxpayer money keeps being spent on campaigns against domestic violence. How immune should a religious text should be, when it clearly incites violence?

He'll get off. There is NO WAY they will equate direct, in context quotes from the Koran with hateful and seditious speech, even though it is exactly that. That is, they won't do so when a Muslim says them. Let an unbeliever say them, and you'll do time.
