“Freedom of Speech” and “Democracy”

Freedom of Speech!
I hear this and I cringe because I know it is a not-too-coded code to take a bash at Islam and Muslims. Just as when I hear the word “Democracy”, I know someone’s freedom is about to be crushed as we have done so frequently in the past and even today.
We support Israel in the name of “Democracy” but Israel is farther away from democracy than even White South Africa was in its heyday. Palestinians are as animals, to be humiliated, dispossessed, killed, exploited and starved, all in the name of protecting Israel, the only democracy in the Mid-East. One might laugh if it were not so tragic.
Yet nobody in the US, seems to make it a matter of concern that we pour well over ten BILLION dollars into that rat-hole every year, just so they can practice newer ways to kill and to oppress millions of people. We, the United States of America, supposedly the greatest democracy in the world, have a knack of supporting the worst examples of oppression over man, all over the world. Even in this country today, we have made it a mark of true patriotism that some of our leaders should target Islam and Muslims as the greatest threat to the US and to the West, while the rest of our leaders remain steadfastly silent in case their future political aspirations should be endangered.
That’s it, isn’t it? WE allow evil to be done in our names because we say nothing against it; Democracy, War, Freedom of Speech, what is the difference? They are all fig-leaves of convenience to disguise the real pupose…Greed and self-interest.
Freedom of Speech!
What is it really? Bigots say it is their God-given RIGHT to say as vile a thought as comes to their minds and if they hate Islam and Muslims, they should be free to say so. Of course they are right because how do we stop the free expression of thought, without curtailing people’s freedoms?
