AMOS YEE IS A KID BUT IS THAT THE REAL ISSUE HERE?

Yes, freedom of speech is important, but I think may supporters of Amos Yee fail to think about this point: how much freedom of speech do you want? Something like Charlie Hebdo or the recent draw the prophet campaign in Texas, where two gunman were killed when they tried to attack officers guarding the campaign? Do we want our society to evolve into one where everyone has the permission to offend everyone else?

SINGAPORE AMBASSADOR: MUSLIMS IN SINGAPORE ANGERED BY CHARLIE HEBDO, UNWILLING TO VOICE OUT DUE TO FEAR OF BEING MISUNDERSTOOD

What is the impact of Charlie Hebdo in Singapore? My own sense is that with the majority of the population, there was shock at the terrorist murders, but not much discussion. Among the Singapore Muslim population, there was a great deal of discussion in the mosques and on social media, which is still ongoing. Singapore Muslims are angry at the utter disrespect for the religion of others demonstrated in Charlie Hebdo and the double standards of the West. They are quite disturbed that another cartoon was published again of the Prophet which was just as unacceptable.

ALFIAN SAAT: THESE EXTREMIST FUCKERS ARE THE REASON I FEEL INTERROGATED AT IMMIGRATION

Because of these fuckers, I find myself feeling interrogated at immigration counters due to the 'Bin' in my name. Because of these pigs, I feel safer passing off as a clean-shaven ambiguous Southeast Asian while traveling in a European country. Because of these balaclava-ed sub-animals with shit for brains, the phrase 'Allahu Akbar' has become, in the popular imagination, more an obscene war-cry than an invocation of the sublime. (As if it has parted company with the serenity of 'amituofo', the cosmic vibration of 'om', the joy of 'hallelujah'...)
