Europe's auto-immune disease

Melanie Phillips no Mail Online:

In decadent Europe, freedom of speech is dying. Loudly trumpeted as a ‘human right’ for any attacks on America, Israel, Christians or on the core values of the west, it is swiftly transformed into ‘hate speech’ and the shutters are slammed down on the speaker whenever Islam is in the frame. Lars Hedegaard is President of the Danish Free Press Society, which is devoted to defending freedom of expression -- particularly against the threat from radical Islam to extinguish it on the spurious grounds of ‘Islamophobia’.  With no sense of irony, Denmark is trying its damnedest to shut Hedegaard up on precisely those grounds."
