After Neuman’s book, "Islam – Evil in the Name of God", was banned in Malaysia, now Muslims in the UK call for banning his book, "Prophet Muhammad: Monster of History".
When my book was banned in Malaysia on July 7th 2011, making it punishable with 3 years in prison plus fine for possessing, publishing or distributing the book, I stated: “Those of you who think that censorship regarding Islam will not happen in the USA because of the First Amendment – dream on… It’s just a matter of time before a lawsuit is filed in the USA stating that all those who oppose Islam are spreading hatred against Muslims and by doing so are threatening the peace.”
One year on, that prediction of mine has come a step closer. UK’s Daily Mail reports that the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has demanded banning my new book "Prophet Muhammad: Monster of History", which is distributed by Amazon.com in the UK. Saying that ‘Freedom of expression should not be unlimited, and publications that cause anti-Muslim hatred, anti-Jewish hatred or homophobic hatred should not be allowed’, the Muslim Council of Britain called on Amazon to ‘take proper responsibility’ for the content of the books on its site.
Adding support to the MCB’s demand for censorship, Richard Mollet, chief executive of the Publishers Association, said: ‘It’s time internet companies did start to take a better look at their practices and behaved more responsibly.’
Labour MP Paul Flynn also jumped in to support MCB’s call for censorship by saying: ‘If Amazon is providing the platform for books that wouldn’t be published otherwise, it is responsible.’
I agree with the MCB that “anti-Muslim hatred, anti-Jewish hatred or homophobic hatred should not be allowed” to be propagated in the name of freedom of expression. But the content of my book exclusively concerns Islam, its founder and Islamic Sharia Law. In no way does it express hatred toward the Muslim people. Instead, it is Muslims who, inspired by their holy books, openly propagate ant-Jewish and homophobic hatred on the streets of western countries and more so in Islamic ones. If the MCB has any concern for anti-Semitism, then they should be the first to call for banning the Quran and Hadiths, which is are worst source of anti-Semitism extant today, calling for total annihilation of the Jewish people. There is no equivocation to the fact that Islam is anti-Jewish.
ANTI JEWISH TEXT IN ISLAM TRILOGY
Meccan Quran 1%
Medinan Quran 17%
Total Trilogy 9.3%
Mein Kampf 7 %
The Trilogy of Medina is even more negative about the Jews than Hitler's Mein Kampf.
Islam is also homophobic. It seeks annihilation of gays, and it is implemented in Islamic countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia.
MURDERING GAYS IS NOT A CRIME IN ISLAM
'If you find anyone doing as Lot's people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done' (Abu Dawud, 4447).
Another hadith says that homosexuals should be burned alive or killed by pushing walls upon them:
Ibn Abbas and Abu Huraira reported God's messenger as saying, 'Accursed is he who does what Lot's people did.' In a version . . . on the authority of Ibn Abbas it says that Ali [Muhammad's cousin and son—in—law] had two people burned and that Abu Bakr [Muhammad's chief companion] had a wall thrown down on them. (Mishkat, vol. 1, p. 765, Prescribed Punishments)
Islam is also anti- Christian/Hindu/Buddhist witnessed by the carnage been committed against them throughout the Middle East and Asia.
I also state in my book that freedom of speech does not include incitement to violence. The Quran is nothing more than a terrorist manual filled with its exhortations to violence against kafirs (2:190-193, 4:89, 9:5, 9:29, 9:123, 47:4, etc., etc.)
Certainly the Muslim Council of Britain would have endless reason to call for banning the Quran and Hadiths, Islam’s sacred texts, which they not only choose to ignore, but instead they propagate those books of hateful messages. On the other hand, I challenge the MCB, the Publishers Association and MP Paul Flynn to show anything in my book that incites specific hatred toward the Muslim people.
