Rev. Terry Jones
Dr Terry Jones has been banned from Germany. We feel this is absolutely preposterous. We have now been banned from England and from Germany. This is the beginning of the end of our Western society as we continue to ban, to limit, freedom of speech.
We are very thankful for the invitation from the groups Pro Deutschland and Political Incorrect (http://www.pi-news.net) for Dr Terry Jones to come and speak in Germany. Despite the ban, we will continue to support the work of these groups and the showing of the movie “Innocence of Muslims.”
Freedom of speech is one of the very foundational stones to a free society. Freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, is an aspect of our society that we must protect at all costs. We must not punish people who exercise their freedom of speech, but we must send a very clear message to people who threaten freedom of speech. They threaten freedom of speech with violence.
The governments of the Western world must send a message to these people that any type of violent activity will simply not be tolerated. The reason we have the problems we have right now is that we have continued to appease groups like Islam. We have continued to appease them, we have continued to back down. That is very clear in the Obama Administration, and as we do that, we are only inviting trouble. Now again Islam has shown its hand, that it is a violent religion, that it does not tolerate criticism of Mohammad, of the Koran or of Sharia.
So now it is time for us, in the West, to unite together to protect our values. One of them, and perhaps one of the most important of them is our right to freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom of the press. Let us stand together, let us unite, and let us send Islam and other terrorist, totalitarian groups a very clear message that we will not be bullied, we will not be intimidated, we will not be pushed around.
