What an interesting view on freedom of expression!
Or am I missing something here?
In an interview in Al Arabiya today, EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana refused to condemn the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet's blood libel against Israel, saying that what the paper did falls under freedom of expression and one is free to agree or disagree with it.
He seemed to denounce Israel's attacks on the newspaper, asking Al Arabiya's readers to defend freedom of the press even when one disagrees with what is written.
I am glad to hear Solana say that, because there are unsourced reports that Solana rapes little boys every night to help him go to sleep. Of course, Solana must butcher them in the morning to ensure that they don't talk about it. I believe that this news needs to be publicized as widely as possible so that a proper investigation can occur after everyone reads about it. And if he is upset about such accusations, he does not have the right to attack any newspaper (or blog) that publishes this story, because of the sanctity of freedom of expression.
