Everywhere (at least in so called blogging world) we hear phrase ‘Freedom of Speech’. Since Rocky Bru and Jeff Ooi kena saman dengan NST, blogger around
I want to ask all blogger (expecially Muslim blogger) and my friend here to read about this young man story…. Abdel Kareem Nabil

As usual, I don’t think anybody going to click the link. So, here the synopsis:

For me, everything has a limit. There is no total freedom. Yes, we can express our feeling, it is our right to give any kind of opinion. I don’t know how to explain this to non muslin, but for me anybody who kutuk Islam or insult Nabi Muhammad, I personally consider to kill him myself.
Something that struck me deep in my heart:
Despite the trial, Kareem has been selected as a nominee for one of the 7th Annual Index on Censorship Freedom of Expression Awards.
Can’t believe it, he got an award for insulting Islam and Nabi Mohammad? I can’t found any parties that condemn what Nabil did, everybody sound agree with his unethical behavior. Where the hell all Islam activist? What Islam organization going to do about it?
But also reach to my knowledge, Nabil not 100% insult Islam and Nabi Muhammad, some of his article are about gender discrimination, Mubarak’s ‘dictatorship’ ruling and some other ‘good’ thing. But, mungkin kerana terlalu asyik, sometimes dia terbawa-bawa sehingga mengutuk Islam dan junjungan besar nabi kita.
Antara petikan dari Blog Nabil:
“…Muslims revealed their true ugly face and appeared to all the world that they are full of brutality, barbarism and inhumanity…" - His comments regarding riot all around the world resulting from comical picture of Prophet Muhammad.
“In a later essay not cited by the court, Nabil clarified his comments, saying Muhammad was "great" but that his teachings on warfare and other issues should be viewed as a product of their times..” - WashingtonPost
“He called Al-Azhar the ‘other face of the coin of al-Qaida’ and called for the university to be dissolved or turned into a secular institution….” - WashingtonPost
Dia bodoh..? mereka bodoh..? or kita yang bodoh..?!
Update: Thanks to Bro Roslan SMS, sebab memanjangkan isu ini kat blog beliau.
