What is wrong with officials in practically every free country? Most of the officials who know about Muhammad and Islam self-censor. And that self-censorship keeps in the dark officials and the portion of the public who don’t know about Muhammad and Islam.
ARE THE LIGHTS GOING OUT?
Here’s a very incomplete list of organizations or people self-censoring, or hiring bodyguards, or going into hiding, or taking other precautions, and sometimes getting killed or wounded after receiving death threats and violence from Muslims following the example of Muhammad, who said there would be no punishment for murdering someone who had insulted him.

Countless others are self-censoring in response to the climate of intimidation. The lights are going out. The growth of Islam means the death of civil liberties. It’s time to resist.
and todays addition to the list,
What did Joseph Adams say that was inaccurate? What did he say that was false? If Muhammad was not “the first terrorist of Islam,” did he not say that he was, according to Islamic tradition? “I have been made victorious through terror” (Bukhari 4.52.220).
“Lib adviser sacked after anti-Islam web posts,” by Heath Aston for the Sydney Morning Herald, July 10:
THE O’Farrell government has been embarrassed by a Liberal adviser who posted anti-Islamic comments online, including a description of the Prophet Muhammad as ”the first terrorist of Islam”.Joseph Adams, who worked in the electorate office of the Smithfield Liberal, Andrew Rohan, was sacked on Friday. Mr Adams, pictured, had angered some of his 1000 Facebook friends – which include 15 state government MPs and four ministers – with selected excerpts from the Koran which he said prove Islam promotes killing, not love.
He was labelled a ”bigot” and the ”biggest f—ing racist ever” by shocked friends.
What race is Islam again?
A record of his posts between March 24 and June 17, obtained by The Sun-Herald, show the criticism only spurred him on to make more offensive remarks.”The religious babble you refer to is Islam,” he commented on June 4. ”There was no war. It was terrorism. Muhammad was the first terrorist in the name of Islam.”
He followed up with: “Why are you getting upset? I’m not the one who is teaching others to kill in the name of Islam. Mohommed is not my hero.”
Do Islamic jihadists not kill in the name of Islam? They consistently and unanimously explain and justify their actions with references to Islamic texts and teachings.
On March 24, he taunted ”friend” Faten Dabs with the comment: ”If you leave Islam it is HALAL for you to be EXECUTED. Lol. No wonder people are afraid to leave Islam.”
Does Islam not have a death penalty for apostasy? Do not all the sects of Islam and schools of Islamic jurisprudence teach this? Did not Muhammad say, according to Islamic tradition, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57)?
After being branded a bigot on Facebook , he responded: ”Your biblical quotes are as ridiculous as your comparisons. I guess you never paid attention at Sunday school. Jesus spoke in parables. Mohommed on the other hand gave orders to kill.
Did not Muhammad say, according to Islamic tradition, “If you gain a victory over the men of Jews, kill them” (Sunan Abu Dawud, 19.2996)?
”You seem to like standing up for killers and murderers. Is Ivan Milat a good person too? Perhaps you think Hitler was a great Prophet too? After all he did put a book together called Mein Kampf. Don’t waste our time here Aaron. The only bigot here is someone with an uninformed view.”
Mr Adams, who identifies himself as an Australian of Assyrian Christian descent, told The Sun-Herald on Friday that he was not ”thinking politically” when he made the remarks.”Rather than listen to what people say about the Koran I decided I would read it myself,” he said.
”It was nothing political, it was out of pure emotion. I didn’t think it would be used against me and people would accuse me of being racist.
”What I did was a mistake, I did not think it would be used for political purposes. In my mind I was living in a free society where we value free speech. Why should religion be a taboo subject?”
But the Premier, Barry O’Farrell, did not agree. Late on Friday a government spokesman said in a statement: ”The comments were totally inappropriate and the staff member has already been terminated.”
