Progressive Muslim country’s mask has slipped

Turkey is held up by left-wingers as an example of how progressive and peaceful a Muslim society can be. Under the leadership of a devout Muslim leader, Turkey is reverting to its roots. Progressive Muslims are not good Muslims because they choose to ignore Islamic law and Islamic values.

Turkey’s capital has banned the public showing of films and exhibitions related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues “to provide peace and security”.

Turkey is not a model democracy, but it is still a travesty for liberal democratic ideals when its government limits which ideas and thoughts can be voiced because the government is unable (or unwilling) to defend a fundamental freedom from attack.

ISTANBUL – The Turkish capital Ankara has banned the public showing of films and exhibitions related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, the governor’s office said on Sunday, citing public safety concerns.

“Starting from Nov. 18, 2017, concerning our community’s public sensitivity, any events such as (LGBT) cinema, theatre, panels, interviews, exhibitions are banned until further notice in our province to provide peace and security,” the governor’s office said in a statement.

It is not just Turkey that is restricting people’s freedom using public safety as an excuse. In France and other Western countries, Jews have been prevented from celebrating their holidays and festivals because the government has said that it was a public safety issue.

In Australia, they refused permission for a Synagogue to be built because it might become a target for Muslim violence. In Sweden, a Gay march through Muslim areas was cancelled because of death threats and again the public safety issue was used to take away their freedom. It is called the Hecklers veto and it is being used worldwide to take away people’s freedoms.

Soon enough Christian festivals and traditions will be targeted. Already Christmas trees are being removed from key areas in order to avoid offending the intolerant inside Western countries.
