Global Censorship urged by Pakistani President

Well, it's finally here. Forget freedom of speech in United States and globally as well. In "Pope expresses Muslim respect," an article by Denis Barnett in Washington Times (9/21/06), Pakistani President Perves Musharraf said,
"It is most disappointing to see personalities of high standing oblivious of Muslim sensitivities at these critical moments." Gen. Musharraf called for a global ban on the "defamation of Islam."
Who would be arbiter of what speech is defamation and what speech is not? Who is responsible for Islam getting a bad rap today? Certainly not the West. Must not hurt their feelings. Eh? Personally, I have a few sensibilities that are not being listened to and those happen to deal with Western folks anywhere in the world are intimidated, murdered, tortured, kidnapped by terrorists. What are we to do and what are we to think? Like it has been said, not all Muslims are terrorists but it turns out that all terrorists are Muslims. On giving up freedom of speech, no way!
