But this is the country that only a few days ago had their foreign minister march arm in arm with other dignateries at the front of the Charie Hebdo march. Clearly their grasp of the freedom of speech concept is more than a little flexable and only given lip service when conveniant.

But seriously, the loss of freedom of speech were the factors that gave us dictatorship in Franco's Spain, Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia.

I would defend the right to that over all else.
