Western Double Standards and Free Speech
Hussein Ibish, NOW Lebanon
Muslim advocates of a global "blasphemy" ban are right that efforts to restrict "hate speech" undermine Western claims about free expression and raise the issue of double standards. But the answer isn't to extend such restrictions even further to cover "blasphemy." It is to recommit to the value of free speech.
