Blasphemy and the law of fanatics

By Fareed Zakaria

When governments try to curry favor with fanatics, eventually the fanatics take the law into their own hands. In Pakistan, jihadis have killed dozens of people whom they accuse of blasphemy, including a brave politician,Salmaan Taseer, who dared to call the blasphemy law a “black law.”

We should fight the Paris terrorists. But we should also fight the source of the problem. It’s not enough for Muslim leaders to condemn people who kill those they consider as blasphemers if their own governments endorse the idea of punishing blasphemy at the very same time. The U.S. religious freedom commission and the U.N. Human Rights Committee have both declared that blasphemy laws violate universal human rights because they violate freedom of speech and expression. They are correct.

    Hang on. A band called Bloodstone has volunteered to fill-in for Kid Frost. RIP Tupac Shakur. He did not take the bribe.

    Ladies and Donna's and gentlemens. I bring you BLOODSTONE.

    Natural High

    Song by Bloodstone

    Why do I keep my mind on you all the time
    And I don't even know you

    Why do I feel this way
    Thinking about you every day
    And I don't even know you

    Take me in your arms
    Thrill me with all of your charms

    And I'll take to the sky on a natural high
    (I want to take to the sky)
    Loving you more 'till the day I die
    (On the natural high)
    Take to the sky on a natural high
    (I want you to be mine)
    Loving you more.

    If you have anything to do
    Call me and I will do it for you
    And I don't even know you

    If I only had one wish to give
    That wish would be for you to live forever and ever.
    When I see you on the street
    My heart skips a beat

    And I'll take to the sky on a natural high
    (I'll just take to the sky)
    Loving you more till the day I die
    (on a natural high)
    Take to… Full lyrics on Google Play

    Here I Am

    Song by Bryan Adams

    Here I am, this is me
    There's nowhere else on Earth I'd rather be
    Here I am, it's just me and you
    Tonight we make our dreams come true

    It's a new world, it's a new start
    It's alive with the beating of young hearts
    It's a new day, it's a new plan
    I've been waiting for you

    Here I am
    Here I am

    Here we are, we've just begun
    And after all this time, our time has come
    Yeah, here we are, still goin' strong
    Right here in the place where we belong

    It's a new world, it's a new start
    It's alive with the beating of young hearts
    It's a new day, it's a new plan
    I've been waiting for you

    Here I am
    Yeah, here I am
    Here I am
    Yeah
    Waiting for you

    Here I am, this is me
    There's no where else on earth I'd rather be
    Here I am, it's just me and you
    And tonight… Full lyrics on Google Play

    Awe. This music show has been preempted by listers of words. Just like my small business TV commercials are by people running for election every 2 years. It really sucks when your TV ad is scheduled to run and instead some stupid fat biatch comes on TV begging for votes. Argh!

    THE HIGHWAY TO PEACE: PALESTINE AND INDIAN OCCUPIED KASHMIR.

    I would like to take a moment in silence to respect the memory of all those who have perished/injured in this terror war. May they rest in peace and god give them eternal abode in the kingdom of heaven. To those who are injured, may you have a speedy recovery. Amen/Ameen/Ah-Mayn.

    This has been the longest war in mankind’s history. There will be no conclusive end to this struggle. The causes of this war must be identified and isolated and addressed. They have been hanging out there for over 60 years ...Palestine….Indian Occupied Kashmir where genocide has been ongoing for decades by predominantly hindu Indian army.

    It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that there will be no peace on this earth till the Israel and Indian Occupied Kashmir issues are resolved. Period.

      Your thesis is right on and like rose petals. I mean why would one need 70 years to solve these issues and still not done. Only if you don't want these issues resolved. Period.

    When Pakistan sneezes the world catches a cold! The obsession with Pakistan is understandable. It is the new regional leader. It is the new gateway to CAS, China and Europe ! It is on The Silk Route. Without Pakistan, America's honorable withdrawal from Afghanistan is not possible. It is a frontline state that has contributed the most, sacrificed the most but gained the least in establishing a new world order. It beckons that a Marshall Plan be established for Pakistan by Western Allies to propel it to the level of prosperity envisaged by Friends of Pakistan. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our friend and ally Pakistan and together we shall achieve common goals. In God We Trust.

      Why is Fareed envious of Pakistan? Is he being paid to spread propaganda by CNN/CIA? Or because India and Pakistan are enemies? Fareed originates from India where he was subjugated as a muslim minority by hindus.

    There are two balls of fire globally. Israel and India. One larger than the other just like my sweaty balls.

    All you have to do is map out terror on a map and you will see these two cults right in the center.

    Fareed Zakaria, read my lips. Your biased bigoted reporting has been met with disdain. How will you look your children in the eyes and explain to them the polluted legacy that you have left them behind. Your logic is flawed. Your facts are wrong. Your journalism is unethical. You are a plagiarist.

    I hope you can find salvation in this life or in India.

    @Zane, Rusty, Molly, Gus and Haji kudos to you for hitting the nail on the head and sharing your thoughts. I agree with your premises.

    The existing geo-political paradigm has failed. Poverty, schisms, conflicts, democratic demise is prevalent and the world is a divided place. We need change. Change from status quo. Change from the UN system. Change from current superpower imbalance and ineffectiveness. In this context, everything else becomes redundant and irrelevant.

    America and EU have lost their bearings and moral platform to lead this world. We need a new political paradigm. A new democratic model. A new security strategy. What we have now ain't working no more as CNN has become a terror channel instead of a news channel.

    Fareed the very country that you are also a citizen of and born in is involved in heinous crimes of genocides. Your leader, the Prime Minister, the Modi guy is a murderer. You people burn brides for money and dowry. How dare you cast an eye on Islam.

    Now go tell your peers at CNN you ain't fooling us Americans anymore. Feel free to shut these forums down to shut people up. Like you did the other forums. Fascism is alive and well.

    Very glad to see some pertinent comments being posted this morning. I don't agree with all but welcome the discussion. @Blue Saffron your dissection of issues and getting to the heart of the matter is very refreshing. Are you an entrepreuner?

    @chrissy you need to see a mental health counselor. And please stick to the subject matter of this article. We are not interested in your personal life nor is this a gossip forum. Try matrimony dot com for your needs. And also I am not into your list of characters. And please dont respond back with lame justifications and innuendos about me or others.
