A German court recently sentenced journalist Michael Stürzenberger (pictured) to six months in jail for posting on his Facebook page a historical photo of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, shaking the hand of a Nazi official in Berlin, in 1941. The prosecution accused Stürzenberger of “inciting hatred towards Islam” and “denigrating Islam” by publishing the photograph
Can this really be happening? The German Government has now outlawed Free Speech. Well, let me be more specific: They have outlawed True Speech along with specific Hate Speech, but continue to lend a blind eye to other specific forms of Hate Speech.
Hate speech, outside the law, is speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation. (Dictionary.com)
Attacks Attributes. Words that can mean whatever you want them to mean. A malleable definition. Perfect for Government use to accomplish an unstated objective. Note that there is no mention of truth or falsehood here. One meaning of “attacks” that is currently in vogue, for example, is if the person’s feelings are hurt. In other words, certain truths cannot be spoken because some do not want to hear it.
Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. (USLegal.com)
This has a little more clarity: “carries no meaning…” is pretty explicit. But this is a current, USA definition, definitely NOT a German one. For example, publishing a photo of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem shaking the hand of a German official – a historical event – is considered hate speech by the German Government. At the same time, hatred toward non-Moslems by Moslems is ignored, as is the rising anti-semitism. However, it is not devoid of meaning.
Germany is using a very selective “hate speech” definition that is much more aggressive Thant the USLegal.com definition. If it is not positive toward Islam and its orgy of murder and hatred, than it is unlawful. And this is under the guise of preventing terrorism? You know, because terrorism is really caused by people who have nasty things to say about … Islamic terrorism. Because, you know, Islam is a “religion of peace” and thus could not, ever, do anything like terrorism, murder, rape, torture… unless of course a right-wing nut said something negative about them… sure.
Hate speech is talk that attacks an individual or a specific group based on a protected attribute such as the target’s sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability, color, or country of origin. Some countries consider hate speech to be a crime, because it encourages discrimination, intimidation, and violence toward the group or individual being targeted. (legaldictionary.net)
So the governments of the world have decided, apparently, that one attribute that is protected is being Islamic. And, that attribute superceeds all others. While the west used to be concerned about anti-semitism, anti-semitism coming from an Islamic person is fine, because they are in a protected class. Under no circumstances may you accuse a Moslem of any terrorist act, because (by definition) Islam is a religion of peace. It must be due to some other cause, no doubt islamophobia. Hate speech against Islam by those who want to warn the world of the horrors of Islamic practice and beliefs.
Another non-protected group is Christians. The West has decided Jews and Christians are no longer protected under the law, but Moslems are. In spite of the overwhelming evidence that almost all terrorism comes from Islam, and in spite of the bloody history of Islam.
So what do you say, when you see the world turn away from telling the truth about the belief system that has murdered or enslaved more humans in recorded history than any other belief system (including communism and Nazism), suppressing that truth, rewriting history to hide that truth, putting people in jail who speak that truth, deleting comments in social media that are against that belief system, and at the same time allowing those that represent that belief system to have free reign in the marketplace?
It’s called Choosing Darkness Rather Than Light. Jesus said that the world prefers darkness, so their evil deeds can be done in darkness. This is exactly what you see here. The “human rights” that have for so long defined the west, and have come straight out of the teachings of Christianity, are being destroyed in a headlong effort to turn away from the source of the very foundations of Western Civilization, and to support a world takeover by Islam, satan’s Very Own Religion, where darkness reigns supreme. A new Dark Age without Christ, because of rejection of Christ.
Can there be any doubt that the Tribulation is coming soon?
