Spain Refuses Asylum For Pakistani Blasphemer
Imran Firasat could face death for Blasphemy in Pakistan because he made a movie about Mohammad.
Spain has begun deportation proceedings against Imran Firasat, a Christian refugee from Pakistan, for making a documentary about Mohammed and thereby threatening the national security of Spain. If Firasat is deported back to Pakistan, he will face the death penalty proving that it's a short step from the Spanish Inquisition to the Pakistani Inquisition. The United States has a man sitting in prison for making another blasphemous movie, which the government spent weeks blaming for worldwide attacks on American embassies. And he isn't the first man persecuted or prosecuted for offending Islam. Offending Islam has become a national security issue involving all levels of government.Ahh Spain, home of the inquisition. Well some of the most famous parts anyway. Under the Inquisition blasphemy would have also been punishable by death. Can you imagine the cries of outrage if the a nation state still used the Catholic Church or any other Christian law to impose such a penalty for blasphemy in the modern west? But Islam and Pakistan will get a pass, because of, you know, the cowardice.
threatening the national security of Spain
Blasphemy makes terrorism seem predictable. It delivers that false sense of control that is at the root of Stockholm Syndrome, the seductive illusion that the thug can be reasoned with and that we can restore control over our perilous environment by accepting responsibility for the enemy's violence. If we meet a set of conditions then we will have peace. And what kind of lunatic wouldn't want peace? The kind who needs to be deported or locked up in the name of peace.Hat Tip: Tarek.

Sure if they are under threat and want to come glad to have them, my first choice was not to invade Iraq but to leave Saddam weakened.
That choice gone, my next choice since we invaded would have been to write Iraq a decent constitution. Ooops missed that chance too.
So of course I'd grant what I could especially in cases where the person is in clear danger.
@. on the jail thing. Lets not be coy here. He was hassled not so much because of his violations but because of the same reason this Kos kid http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/214652.php wants new laws specifically enforced against his political enemies and others let off.
You pick that guy for your straw man because he is least sympathetic. While ignoring the other cases. Cases like this one http://www.ibtimes.com/saudi-arabias-own-salman-rushdie-arrested-mohammad-tweets-968536
Justice it seems is not so blind is it. Of course if you haven't noticed that, welcome to Earth.

The truth is, all of the wars waged by USA, EU, and many other puppet countries are being waged in order to create a "Greater Israel." The Jewish people believe an "Eternal Jewish Kingdom" is promised to them by God, and they believe they are in a prominent place to pursue the creation of that kingdom.
As part of the creation of that "Eternal Jewish Kingdom," they believe the Jews must return to the holly land--which they did at this point. That Kingdom must exist between 'Euphrates and the Nile,' and all nations must obey that kingdom. When those points are accomplished, the Jews are expecting what they believe to be a "Jewish King" whose rule would be an 'eternal'.
In light of those Jewish beliefs and the stranglehold that Zionists have on American, European, Canadian, and Australian governments, the current wars, which are pursued by the western governments, are being waged in order to create "Greater Israel," and all nations, particularly, Muslim nations, must obey the kingdom that 'would be created between Euphrates and the Nile'. This is the goal of the current wars, and anyone claiming Islam is a threat is a liar and paid agent whose intention is to divert attention away his aims of increasing animosity against Muslims and the wars that his Zion masters are pursuing.
Well, Muslims have a promise, and all of these steps have been prophetized in the Holly Koran and Ahadiths. We have a firm knowledge and promise the ultimate victory will belong to Muslims; the so-called Jewish King is nothing but Dajjal (the Anti-Christ) who will be killed by the real Messiah--Jesus Christ (peace and blessing be upon him), and there will never be an Eternal Jewish Kingdom between Euphrates and the Nile.

It will eventually be outlawed as incompatible with Civilization and that majority will be freed from servitude to the gang of criminals who enslave them in mind and body.
