An important victory for free speech...

Among all the cartoon craziness, there was an important victory for free speech that no one seems to want to notice. Nick Griifin, a British politician, was criminally tried for saying some truths about some Muslims at a public meeting.

The jury acquitted him on one count and did not convict on the others. This letter to The First Post lays out the facts better than any news story, including the actual "criminal" words used- calling some rapists "bastards" and saying that Islam is a "wicked" and "vicious" religion, whose Koran encourages ill treatment of non Muslim women.
