• FEAR WINS! French Publisher Refuses To Publish Book Critical Of Islam

    This is how the freedoms we enjoy slowly disappear.

    A French publisher is pulling a book critical of Islam for fear of a violent response.

    Radical Islam is a bully.

    They use fear and terror to intimidate the world and it looks like they are succeeding.

    Fearing reprisal from Muslims, French publisher reverses decision to publish book critical of Islam

    “Fearing Islamist reprisal, French publisher revises decision to publish book critical of Islam,” by Vijeta Uniyal, Legal Insurrection, July 28, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

    A Paris-based publishing house has revised its decision to publish a French version of the German bestseller “Der Islamische Faschismus” (The Islamic Fascism). Written by German-Egyptian author Hamed Abdel-Samad, the book was due to hit the French bookstores in September. Piranha Edition reportedly changed its mind after this month’s ISIS-inspired terror attack in Nice that killed 84 people and injured more than 300.

    If the objective of Islamist violence in Europe had been to force the continent into submission, it is well on its way to achieving them.

    Piranha Edition justified the decision of not going ahead with the publication by citing the threat of Radical Islam as well its desire of not wanting to strengthen the right-wing French groups critical of Islam. Interestingly, the head office of the Piranha Edition is just within a few minutes of walk from Bataclan, the theatre where 89 people were murdered by Islamic terrorists in November 2016.

    Earlier this week, Hamed Abdel-Samad revealed the details of the failed book deal in a German-language blog Die Achse des Guten:

    First the publisher changed the title from “The Islamic Fascism” to “Is Islam a form of Fascism?” — in order to avoid unnecessary polarisation. But after the attack in Nice, the publishing house decided not to publish the book at all, as it fearful of the consequence — as stated in [their] email — which could have been deadly. There could be another attack like the one at Charlie Hebdo.

    Had the publisher ended the email just there, I could understand, as it is a matter of life and death, and I cannot ask everyone to take the risk that I take with my book.

    But then came the second argument why the publication was not possible at this point. The book could benefit the right wing [parties]. [Author’s translation]

    When we don’t call out radical Islam for what it is we are complicit in the violence. We must not turn away.

    It is a falsehood to think if we don’t do anything to make radical Islam mad they will leave the West alone. They will not.
