islamophobie, un outil pour réprimer la liberté d’expression.

Je rejoins totalement l’analyse de Keith.  Comme le rappellent les récents incidents à l’ULB, les accusations d’islamophobie, par leur volonté d’assimiler critique des excès des religions et le racisme, visent surtout à museler les esprits libres et à tuer le débat démocratique. Il n’est guère douteux – si l’on dressait le catalogue des persécutions – que l’athéistophobie tiendrait une très méritée première place tant les religions sont unanimes dans la détestation des mécréants.

ONE LAW FOR ALL

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION RALLY, OPPOSITE UK PARLIAMENT

11 FEBRUARY 2012

 

Speech by Keith Porteous Wood, Executive Director, National Secular Society

(A shorter version was delivered, due to time constraints.)

This oppression of freedom of expression by Islamists in universities, even in this country, is – sadly – nothing new. I remember being shouted down on a discussion about gay rights in the 1980s at Brunel University in Uxbridge. I was less shocked by the attempt to silence me, than by the completely supine attitude of the students and the organisers of the acceptance this behaviour is normal – and by implication acceptable. Beyond an apology for the rudeness disruption, no further action was taken. I expect that part of the reason for this was that the perpetrators were from an ethnic minority. That dangerous conflating race and religion is even more a problem now.

For those of you who like solving simultaneous equations, or are logicians, I have a little exercise.

If criticising Islam = Islamophobia, and Islamophobia = racist (as we are told), and racism = unacceptable (as we agree), is therefore criticising Islam unacceptable?
