Michael Savage named alongside hate preachers and a member of Hamas.

Jacqui Smith’s latest disaster: Banned U.S. shock jock never even tried to visit Britain – now he’s suing

A U.S. ‘shock jock’ DJ named among 16 extremists and fanatics banned from the UK has said he will sue Jacqui Smith for defamation.

Michael Savage, who has up to 10 million listeners, branded Home Secretary Jacqui Smith a ‘lunatic’ and a ‘witch’ after being named alongside hate preachers and a member of Hamas.

Last night lawyers suggested he had a strong case as he had not advocated violence, unlike others on the list. It was thought he could claim up to £200,000 in damages.

The presenter is furious at being put on the list of 22 hardliners banned from entering the UK because the Home Office claims they have fostered extremism or hatred.

He says he had not been planning to travel to Britain anyway and has now called on his millions of listeners to boycott the country.

Mr Savage added: ‘It’s interesting to me that here I am a talk show host, who does not advocate violence, who advocates patriotic traditional values – borders, language, culture – who is now on a list banned in England.

‘What does that say about the government of England? It says more about them than it says about me.’

The list has turned into another humiliating gaffe for the Home Secretary after officials were forced to admit not all the fanatics, like Mr Savage, wanted to come to the UK.

It has emerged their names were placed on it simply on the off-chance they may decide to visit.

At least two – teenage skinheads Artur Ryno and Pavel Skachevsky – have no chance of boarding a plane to Britain since they are currently serving ten years in a Russian jail for leading a gang which committed 20 racially-motivated murders.

Challenged to say how many on the banned list had been planning to visit Britain, a Home Office spokesman said today: ‘I do not have that information.’

Mr Savage declared: ‘I have been banned from Great Britain. I had not planned on going there, I had not been there in over 25 years.

‘When I woke up this morning I just thought I could not be true. The point is that today it is me, tomorrow it will be somebody else.’

Using his show The Savage Nation, which is broadcast on more than 350 U.S. radio stations, to attack the ban, he called Miss Smith a ‘witch’.

‘For her to link me up with skinheads who are killing people in Russia, to put me in league with mass murderers who kill Jews on buses, is defamation,’ he claimed.

‘I thought this was a joke or a mistake. How could they put Michael Savage in the same league with mass murderers when I have never avowed violence? As a result of this, I am going to sue.’

He added: ‘When has this witch heard my show, since it’s not syndicated in England?

‘Thank God we broke away from that cowardly country.’

‘That is exactly the kind of speech the founders of our country meant to protect with the First Amendment.

‘And it should send a cold chill through the heart of any man who loves freedom when he asks himself, “whose ideas and speech will be banned by government next”.’

Jameel Jaffer, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the move showed countries were prepared to ‘use their borders as a weapon of censorship’.

‘While some of these people may express views that others find disagreeable, often the cure is worse than the disease,’ said Mr Jaffer. ‘It also deprives the citizens of that country of their ability to hear dissenting views.’

MIKE SAVAGE: ‘You know, when I see a woman walking around with a burqa, I see a Nazi.’
He has called the Koran ‘a book of hate’ and added that some Muslims, at least, ‘need deportation’.

Freedom of Speech in Islam

The term ‘Human Rights’ is used by many, also by Muslims. But it doesn’t necessarily imply that the users of the term mean the same thing. This is important to note as we discuss freedom of speech and religion. There are two major global entities with their respective declarations on human rights: The United Nations (UN) and the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).

United Nations was founded after the 2nd World War. The UN declaration on human rights is based on Judeo-Christian ethics and was established in 1948. OIC was founded in 1969, has 57 member states and represents every fifth person on the globe. OIC has developed and adopted its own declaration on human rights, partly in opposition the UN version, stating that Islamic human rights are different. These Muslim countries have signed up to the UN declaration but pay little attention to it in practice, and adhere rather to the Islamic version, called the Cairo Declaration.

The Cairo Declaration states that all 57 Muslim countries should abide by the declaration. But it further clarifies that the declaration applies to the “ummah”, i.e. all Muslims all over the world, even in non-Muslim countries. This is noteworthy and remarkable. It is the norm of international treaties and conventions that nations sign up and commit themselves to abide by them. But the Cairo Declaration indirectly nullifies national borders and laws by asserting that the sharia based interpretation of human rights applies to all Muslims regardless of citizenship and country of residence. That means that Islamic laws (and the Cairo Declaration) supersede national laws, in every case and in every place.

The declaration states again and again – in the preamble, in various articles and in the conclusion – that everything is subject to sharia and should be interpreted in light of the Koran and Islamic law. Thus it may mention freedom and rights, but they are restricted according to the Koran and Islamic law.

Article 10 in the Cairo Declaration deals with religious freedom and asserts that there mustn’t be any compulsion in religion – but of course subject to Sharia. But it is a well known fact that those who leave Islam are at risk and quite a few are punished, even by death. Article 18 in the UN Declaration deals with religious freedom and has three main components: The right to have, express and change your faith. But in countries where Islam has a major influence there are definite limitations regarding expressing your beliefs and changing your religion; the latter especially for Muslims. In general Christians are allowed to convert to Islam, but it is illegal and dangerous for a Muslim to leave Islam.

This is what the Cairo Declaration says about freedom of speech: “Everyone shall have the right to express his opinion freely in such manner as would not be contrary to the principles of the Shariah. Everyone shall have the right to advocate what is right, and propagate what is good, and warn against what is wrong and evil according to the norms of Islamic Shariah.”  Thus freedom of speech is interpreted and limited by sharia.

Many surveys measuring various freedoms shows – again and again – that citizens in Muslim countries suffer oppression. They lack basic human rights and freedoms when it comes to politics, media, religion, gender equality, and so forth. One may speak of human rights, but Islamic versions of the same lead to the opposite, as a result of the supremacy of sharia law in Muslim faith and practice globally. This also includes freedom of speech and religion. Thus we need to be aware of similar or same terms that may be filled with different contents.

See Public flogging of women in Islam

These Muslim men in this given video shown flogging the women are said to be following rules in the Islamic holy book Koran which they say allows women to be flogged in public. How humiliating, how hurtful it is to the person hurt in front their children, parents, spouses, friends and relatives is something I don’t have to say. Do I have to add the self esteem of such women is below level zero? Public flogging of women is a rule in most Islamic countries in including Saudi Arabia, Pakistan Yemen Malaysia Iran etc.

Saudi Arabia’s Curriculum of Intolerance

WASHINGTON – A symposium discussing the newly released report Saudi Arabia’s Curriculum of Intolerance brought together a panel of experts and scholars who concluded that the official Saudi set of textbooks used by more than 5 million students of Islam is an ‘‘incubator for terrorism.’’

“One of the things that is absolutely manifested – looking back at the events that have already happened – is that there is an incubator for the ideas of terrorism,” said Danielle Pletka, the symposium moderator and vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at American Enterprise Institute. “An incubator that is filled with hatred of the West, with ‘can’ts’ about Christian and Jews, with [the sense] of separateness…”

“While I don’t think that is necessarily what Islam is all about, it is certainly what a lot of the textbooks propagated by the Saudi government contain.”

On Wednesday, one day following the release of the report on the Saudi textbooks by Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom, Pletka, the Center’s director Nina Shea, and Saudi scholar Ali al-Ahmed took part in a panel discussion hosted by the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research.

Al-Ahmed, an expert on Saudi political affairs, believes that the education system plays a significant part in creating terrorists.

“The Saudi education system is often an ignored front in the war on terror,” said al-Ahmed. “The Saudi 9/11 hijackers were products of this education system. As children they were indoctrinated with this curriculum that is full of hatred and hostility to others. It is not hard for them to be converted to al-Qaeda terrorists in a matter of months….

“Reforming the Saudi education system must be an integral part of the war on terrorism, before it is too late.”

Freedom House’s Shea, the principal author of the report documenting the textbooks, elaborated on the use of Saudi religious education to teach “intolerance” against unbelievers. She noted that even a Saudi royal study group analyzing the kingdom’s religious study curriculum a couple of years ago found that the curriculum for boys on religion “encourages violence towards others and misguides the people into believing that in order to safeguard their own religion, they must violently repress and even physically eliminate the other.”

Al-Ahmed agrees.

“The textbooks teach hatred and violence against other Muslims who do not follow Wahhabi Islam and against all non-Muslims,” he said.

“These textbooks turn millions of children into hateful, angry, and misinformed youths that are just one step away from being the perfect terrorist.”

Both al-Ahmed and Shea highlighted the network of belief schools and academy in 19 of the world’s capitals that use these Islamic text including London, Paris, Rome, Madrid, Moscow, Beijing and Washington, D.C.

During her speech, Shea refuted the Saudi government’s repeated assertions that they have removed intolerance from the textbooks and “cleaned” them up.

“What we found in this report is that it is an ideological curriculum of intolerance against the unbelievers, or polytheists,” said Shea. “And this includes explicitly Christians, Jews, and other Muslims who are all demonized. They assert that peaceful co-existence is not possible.”

“The first grade text condemns Christians and Jews explicitly to hellfire, plant idea that they are evil. Keep in mind that this is not a religion talking but the government of Saudi Arabia; this is the official textbook.”

Shea summarized some of the indoctrination taught to students in Saudi Arabia and students using the texts around the world: fourth graders are taught that Muslims must hate the unbelievers; ninth graders’ text say Jews and Christians are enemies of believers; eleventh grade students are instructed not to greet the infidels; and twelfth graders are taught that it is a religious obligation for Muslims to engage in battle against the infidels to spread the faith or a military jihad.

“So why is this important?” the human rights lawyer asked. “In addition to being the intellectual foundation for terrorism, one must keep in mind that Saudis are trying to assert themselves as the most authoritative voice within Islam.”

Shea also pointed out that the Saudi government has “unlimited funds for these propaganda” and it is estimated that the country spends three times as much on ideological propaganda as the Soviets did per a year during the height of the cold war.

“Instead of hate, these textbooks must teach more than tolerance,” concluded al-Ahmed. “Tolerance is not enough. It must teach harmony, cooperation, and even to embrace the others in humanity. There are million of children that are victims, and that is why these textbooks must be reformed now.

“These toxic seeds of hate and bigotry implanted in the young minds are more dangerous than tons of explosives in the hands of terrorists.”

Class dismissed in Swat Valley

What Strict Islam or Sharia can do to the culture and education of a place is so evident from this video, very touching indeed. Class dismissed in Swat Valley Pakistan is a documentary profiling an 11-year-old Pakistani girl on the last day before the Taliban close down her school.  This is exactly what Hardcore Muslims with the support of Pakistani Army wanted to do in neighboring Kashmir valley, India. Indian Army has successfully been resisting this for the last 20 years. Europe and America should be aware of this; Sharia starts from small seemingly non harmful activity like a head scarf for girls and ladies to slowly transgress to extremes like this. Let us not take our democracies, which our fathers and forefathers gifted us, for granted and be complacent.
