Blasphemy: Islam’s Achilles Heel

Discussion posted by: Arye ben-Shaoul

All around the Islamic world, and even in the West, “blasphemers”—those who would talk against Islam—are under attack; some are murdered, many imprisoned. Validating this assertion is almost futile, as blasphemy-related stories surface with extreme regularity. The recent murder of an American citizen being tried for blasphemy in a Pakistani courtroom is just the most “spectacular.” Incidences of Muslims beating or imprisoning (two with death sentences) those who say or do something critical of Islam—to say nothing of just rioting in general—have in recent days and weeks been reported from Austria, Bangladesh, Egypt, France, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway, Tunisia, and the UK.
