I have so many thoughts on this that I don’t even know where to begin. It’s a sad day in the world when you have to fear radical Islamists coming to your offices because you published books critical of Islam. It’s indicative of a serious mental problem on the side of the terrorists, but it is also indicative of a courage problem on the side of the publishers.
There was a time in this country where we would have proudly said, “We don’t negotiate with terrorists.” Now not only are we negotiating with them, we’re putting their feelings ahead of our own God-given rights out of fear that they will violently retaliate.
Adelaide’s Imam Mohammad Tawhidi was told that his book could not be published for no reason other than because the company feared that they would be attacked if they carried on with the publishing process. You see, the good Imam wanted to write a book about his religion, but the company demanded he take out any passages therein that may upset radicals. (Which really could be anything, because they’re clearly an unstable bunch.) When he refused, the company responded with an apology and a denial.
“They were willing to publish it if I agreed to erase certain passages and reword a number of paragraphs.”
“I respect their feelings and concerns but I refuse to accept their requests.”
This is not the first time that Tawhidi has been targeted for his anti-extremist rhetoric. It’s only a matter of time before the total wussification of Australia is complete and they completely bend to the will of terrorists.
There is no excuse for this kind of cowardice. These publishers have not succeeded in making Australia safer and I would argue that empowering terrorists like this (letting them know that they control the information in your country) will only lead to bigger problems down the road.
