Obama and Clinton apologize for an American exercising their free speech rights inside this country.
Obama portrays a weak America to the world, ready to disregard her principles if they offend others.

Having lived in a former communist country I see no advantage to free speech. Free speech doesn't help you find a job or pay your bills. Free speech only makes you think you're free.

Free speech allows you to speak out against those in power whose policies make it where you cannot find jobs to pay bills. It allows you to join with others to bring about necessary change without fear of being attacked or jailed.

Dutch to prosecute Arab group for holocaust cartoon

THE HAGUE: An Arab organisation will be put on trial in the Netherlands for publishing a Holocaust-denying cartoon in response to caricatures of the prophet Mohammed, prosecutors said Wednesday.‘This cartoon is discriminatory,’ the prosecuting authority said of the sketch on the website of the Arab European League (AEL) which it said depicted the Nazi holocaust as a figment of Jewish imagination.‘This is offensive to Jews as a group,’ said a statement. Last month, Dutch prosecutors ordered the league to remove the cartoon from its website or face prosecution. The cartoon was punishable, they found,‘because it offends Jews on the basis of their race and/or religion’.
