+ - Thousands of Muslims Protest 'age of mockery' at Google's London Headquarters-> 2

Submitted by cold fjord
cold fjord (826450) writes "A large protest planned by as many as 800 imams was held today at Google's London headquarters to protest the video, 'The Innocence of Muslims,' which is available on Google's subsidiary Youtube. There may have been as many as 10,000 protesters in what is said to be the first of several planned protests. From the story: "Speeches by more than a dozen imams . . . urged Muslims to honour the name of the Prophet and not to back down in the face of Google's continuing reluctance to act, and were met with passionate cries of "God is Great" and "Mohammad is the Prophet of God" in Arabic. . . One of the speakers. . . told The Daily Telegraph: "Terrorism is not just people who kill human bodies, but who kill human feelings as well. The makers of this film have terrorised 1.6 billion people. . . businessman Ahmed Nasar said he was worried the video could lead to violence in Britain . . . "If you push people too far," he said, "You will turn the peaceful elements into violence." . . . A YouTube spokesperson said: "We work hard to create a community everyone can enjoy and which also enables people to express different opinions. "This can be a challenge because what's OK in one country can be offensive elsewhere. This video — which is widely available on the Web — is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube." " Video of the protest"

    If ever there was a time for the playing of the world's smallest violin, this is it. Boo fucking hoo.

  • If free speech pushes people to violence in Britain then those people are probably in the wrong country.
