BBC is bowing down to fucking Islam again - what a surprise

Quote:
Dear Friend,

You may remember Lloyd Newson’s verbatim hit play ‘Can We Talk About This?’ which enjoyed a successful run at London’s National Theatre and Sydney Opera House amongst others. The play focused on the reluctance of media and political figures to openly discuss the dangers of Islamism and Sharia law.

Featuring speeches and interviews with leading figures from across the political and cultural spectrum, including One Law for All’s Maryam Namazie and Anne Marie Waters, the play explored issues of freedom of speech, censorship and violence, as well as the impact of significant events such as the ‘Rushdie Affair’, the murder of Dutch film-maker Theo Van Gogh, and the Mohammed cartoons.

‘Can We Talk About This?’ received rave reviews around the world and won several high profile awards, including ‘Best Dance or Ballet’ (Helpmann Awards, Australia 2012) and dance ‘Production of the Year’ (Germany, 2011/12).

Channel 4 decided not to commission the play due to the ‘current climate’ even though Lloyd Newson’s last film, the Cost of Living, was commissioned for Channel 4 and won 17 international awards, including a Prix Italia and the coveted Rose D’or. Similarly the BBC, which had commissioned previous films from Newson, declined to film the play though they broadcast ‘Jerry Springer – The Opera’ (which featured Jesus Christ in a nappy). So much for the supposed ‘bravery’ of Channel 4 and the ‘impartiality’ of the BBC when it comes to Islam!

This blasphemy-law-by-stealth must be opposed. One Law for All vehemently objects to the climate of censorship and fear when it comes to Islam and calls on supporters of freedom of expression to exert pressure on UK broadcasters to screen this highly successful and relevant play. We must demand an end to censorship particularly for the many who are suffering under Sharia law and Islamism across the world and facing threats, imprisonment and the death penalty for merely speaking their minds.

Please write to the BBC at BBC Audience Services, PO Box 1922, Darlington DL3 0UR and/or Channel 4 at Channel 4 Television Corporation, 124 Horseferry Road, London SW1P 2TX and ask for this important production to be screened.

We look forward to your support.

Thank you.

Muslims are bigger babies than Christians.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Could we have a page on this forum for Muslim images, mainly Mohammed? Those pages would be indexed and it would be so funny to have "enforcers" try to ban it.

Others have obviously done the same. Similar to Ghoulies Jesus page. We may all of course get stoned to death, and I am not eluding to Jamaican Woodbines.

A theist is just an atheist with a space in it.

It sounds like a lot of fun. I would require some crazy bastard to waste many of the hours of his existence maintaining it.

They never stop. It's just coming out that the older Boston Marathon bomber was heavily into militant islam.

Apologies for this also coming out all over the place, of course.

Not sure how true this little gem of jizzlamic tolerance is, but it wouldn't surprise me if it is indeed from the bottom of the shit-stained barrel.

In Syria, a girl was stoned to death for having a Facebook account. The girl, Fatoum Al-Jassem, was executed by a mob of Islamic extremists after being sentenced to death by a Sharia court, according to a Feb. 14 report filed by India Today.

Even if it's not real, it's sad that it even sounds likely.
