This is sharia in the West. Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen has been arrested over a speech she made in Belfast addressing the jihad threat and teachings calling for holy war. Whether you agree with Jayda Fransen is of no import. Her right to say it is everything. It is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced. Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths. If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others.
Islamic law forbids criticism of Islam, Quran, Muhammad. If they cannot be criticized in the US, we are in effect accepting Islamic law as overriding the freedom of speech. This would establish Muslims as a protected class and prevent honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. If speech that offends a group is outlawed, that group has absolute power, and a free society is destroyed. A group that cannot be criticized cannot be opposed. It can work its will no matter what it is, and no one will be able to say anything to stop it.
Here is the speech Ms. Fransen was arrested for. “London has fallen”:
Britain First leader Paul Golding said: “A large group of plain clothes police detectives from Belfast of all places jumped out of nowhere and have arrested Jayda.”

In a video posted on his Twitter feed, the far-right group’s leader Paul Golding said his second-in-command will be taken to Belfast to be interviewed over comments she made outside the City Hall in August.
He said: “A large group of plain-clothes police detectives from Belfast of all places jumped out of nowhere and have arrested Jayda.”What have they arrested her for?
“Both of us addressed, made a speech, at a public demonstration outside Belfast City Hall all the way back in August.
“The detective I spoke to told me she is being flown to Belfast tonight to be interrogated.
“It’s absolutely ridiculous – this is non-stop with me and Jayda, non bloody stop.”
Ms Fransen and Mr Golding were in Belfast on August 6 for a demonstration by around 50 people calling themselves Northern Ireland Against Terrorism.
It took place on the same day as a Republican march organised by the Anti-Internment League to mark the use of detention without trial by the British Army during the height of the Troubles in 1971.
A PSNI spokesman said: “A 31-year-old woman has been arrested by PSNI Criminal Investigation Branch Detectives in London today.
“The arrest was made in Bromley by PSNI detectives working with officers from the London Metropolitan Police Service.
“The woman is being brought to Belfast to be interviewed under Art 9(1) of the Public Order (NI) Order 1987 in relation to speeches made at the Northern Ireland Against Terrorism Rally on Sunday 6th August this year.”

It is the conflict of our age, yet no one dares talk about it. The true story of the Islamic Supremacist war on free speech as told by those on the front lines fighting for our First Amendment rights,
Pamela Geller tells her own story of how she became one of the world's foremost activists for the freedom of speech,
individual rights, and equality of rights for all. "It's my story, it's what happens when someone fights for freedom in America today,"
Today Islamic supremacists are demanding more accommodation of Islamic principles
and practices than ever, and daily growing more aggressive in eroding our freedoms – with politically
correct public officials only too happy..
