Consider the case of the Saudi journalist Hamza Kashgari. After using Twitter to express some thoughts about the Prophet Muhammad which some considered blasphemous, he fled to Malaysia, apparently fearing for his life. Over the weekend the Malaysian government put him on a plane back to Saudi Arabia, ignoring the pleas of liberal Muslims in their own country.
Compared to the rage against anti-piracy measures, this is a fairly muted protest so far.
Does Free Speech really matter, as long as Piracy survives?
Nice to know the Loons have their priorities straight.
