Celebrating Eid and Free Speech (Express Tribune)

May Peace Win

My two latest at The Express Tribune Blogs, my suggested title “Free Speech: Ban All or None” was switched for the anodyne “May Peace Win” (March 3, 2015):  “Most Muslims can ignore and shrug off blasphemy. Murder is far more offensive. In the future, non-Muslims, including the growing number of former Muslims, will criticize Islam. Muslims can either respond with calls for violence or peace.”

Next, Mayor Bill Blasio made Eid a holiday for NYC public schools (March 11, 2015):  “ …whether an entire country should satisfy less than two per cent of the population is a decision that should be decided democratically.”
