Muslim dissidents face dire consequences in Islamic countries. To a great extent the western media and the western governments are to be blamed. Not only they don’t condemn these human rights violations, they are often reticent to report them. This silence is interpreted as a green light by the governments in Islamic countries and a seal of approval.
There is nothing unwise in criticizing any religion. All religions are regularly criticized. Why Islam should be an exception?
Millions of people in Islamic countries live in constant fear. They are the ones who can bring moderation. Instead of protecting them and supporting them, the western media ignores them and in most cased cooperates with Islamic fundamentalists to shut them up. Critics of Islam are called “haters” and “Islamophobes.” Thus name calling is designed to silence the legitimate criticism of Islam and the result is more extremism.
There are millions of people like Kashgari in all Islamic countries. All they want is to be free. Isn’t this the basic human right? But they are denied freedom, not just by their oppressive governments, but also by westerners who think respecting a religion, no matter how egregious it may be, is more important than human rights and even human lives.
Only truth will set us free and truth is that killing people for having different views is barbarity. Is it not? Then why not say it? Why not denounce and ban a creed that promotes such barbarity?

Major Troy Gilbert was shot down in Iraq in 2006. His body was stolen from the wreckage and used as propaganda to show the “evil” America for what it is.
I could give a rats ass what the misinformed think about America. Winning the hearts and minds of the ignorant (willful or not) and our enemies has proven to be a monumental task. What I do care about is that the family of Major Gilbert know that the American people are grateful for what he willingly gave, in the service of humanity, and in the service of his country. His life.
Folks, please spread this video as far and wide as possible. It may be the only way we as individuals can help, but hopefully with momentum, somewhere along it’s travels it will reach the right hands and the Mother’s plea – “Please, please, help us get him home” – will be honored.
“For five years, five years, we have been waiting patiently. Patiently waiting for the Air Force and every one over there to do their business and find our son.”
“I felt just like, after a hundred years of service this family has given to the United States Air Force, I feel like we have been tossed to the wind.”

“The real threat to the United States is not terrorism. The real threat is the sophisticated forces of Islamism, which have collaborated with the American Left not only to undermine U.S. national security but to shred the fabric of American constitutional democracy.”
