International Free Speech and Secularism Petition

As was to be expected, Islamacist bullies have issued a death-order for those who dared publish a manifesto against Islamacist bullies. Some, not much, info here, at Andrew Sullivan's blog.

From the manifesto:
[W]e must assure universal rights to oppressed people. For that reason, we reject “cultural relativism,” which consists of accepting that Muslim men and women should be deprived of their right to equality and freedom in the name their cultural traditions.

We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of “Islamophobia,” an unfortunate concept that confuses criticism of Islamic practices with the stigmatization of Muslims themselves.

We plead for the universality of free expression, so that a critical spirit may be exercised on every continent, against every abuse and dogma.

We appeal to democrats and free spirits of all countries that our century should be one of enlightenment, not of obscurantism.

The petition is here. Read it; sign it. If they fatwa all of us, so be it.
