Wafa Sultan, the indomitable defender of the West against the savagery of Islamic coercion has been forced into hiding in response to a fatwa issued against her by an Islamic scholar (HT: Noodlefood, LGF). From the report I read, it is not clear just who issued the threat or what country he or she lives in, but if this threat is confirmed, I think America's response should be plain. Either this person is arrested and punished for issuing a death threat by his home government, or our government should bomb that nation until it submits.
Ms. Sultan is an American citizen and no one has a right to threaten her life for any reason; it is our government's mission to protect her and anyone else's right to speak openly and freely about any subject they choose, including the depravity of Islam. A foreign power that permits death edicts against the lives of Americans is committing an act of war and it is the duty of our government to treat these acts as such.
If Wafa Sultan is not free to speak her mind, than neither you nor I are free to speak ours. None of us can tolerate this encroachment upon our ability to communicate our ideas. It will be telling to see just what our government's response to this outrage will be, and I suspect we will have to fight long and hard to compel it to take the proper steps in defense of our liberty.
