Free Speech Slammed in Finland as Politician is Brought up on Blasphemy Charges…….

Jussi Halla-aho to stand trial for blasphemy against Allah

Believe it or not, Finland still has blasphemy laws on the books, but there have been repeated attempts to rescind Section 10 of chapter 17 of the Finnish penal code. All attempts however, at removing the anti-modern statute from the law books have proved unsuccessful, with the latest attempt failing in 1998.

Helsinki city councilman, Jussi Halla-aho was charged with blasphemy and incitement of an ethnic-group in the Helsinki district court today, and ordered to stand trial for publishing on his blog that Islam’s prophet was a pedophile. According to the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, Jorme Kalske:

“Halla-aho had uploaded to the Internet and submitted writings to the general public, in which Islam and its sacred institutions were combined with pedophilia, and in which was also presented the robbery of pedestrians and the ooting of tax revenue was a certain national group or a specific genetic characteristic.

The charges were presented in the Helsinki District Court. Halla-aho denies the charges”

Courtesy of the blogger Vasarahammer, here is Helsinki City Councilman, Jussi Halla-aho’s post that the Finnish state wants him prosecuted for. It is addressed to Mika Illman, the Finnish state prosecuting attorney, in response of the Finnish state’s prosecution of Seppo Lehto last year.

A couple of baits for Mika Illman

State prosecutor Mika Illman’s winning streak continued a few days ago, when a specialist of rude humor Seppo Lehto was sentenced for two years and four months imprisonment and to pay tens of thousands of euros in damages for several accounts of gross defamation, incitement against an ethnic group and for religious worship (TT: blasphemy). The issue has been discussed around the internet so much that I probably don’t have to repeat the self-evident facts:

a) Filth blogs created by Lehto fulfill all possible criteria for “gross defamation” but

b) Nobody has ever been sentenced for two years and four months for these kind of crimes. I don’t blame Mika Illman, he is obviously a man worthy of his last name, who does what he thinks he is supposed to do, but those district courts that have lamely given Mika everything he dares to ask have a reason to be ashamed of themselves.

c) Illman’s selection of plaintiffs and recipients of damages consisted only of his fellow prosecutors and members of parliament, and not, for example, Teemu Lahtinen, to whom Lehto’s filth blogs possibly caused real damage during the last parliamentary election. The thinking in which public figures deserve more protection than regular citizens has so far been alien to the democratic state and rule of law.

Let’s stop talking about defamations. Lehto was also convicted of disturbing religious worship. According to the district court Lehto violated muslims’ religious worship by defaming the prophet Muhammad. Professor Jaakko Hämeen-Anttila has confirmed the interpretation according to which Muhammad is a revered figure in Islamic faith.

According to state prosecutor Mika Illman and Tampere district court insulting the prophet Muhammad is illegal, because Muhammad is revered by muslims.

(On the other hand professor Hämeen-Anttila could certainly confirm that in Christianity Jesus and God are holy figures. Of course, this doesn’t prevent anybody to defame Jesus or God freely in the way he or she chooses.)

Next I intend to throw Mika a bait:

Prophet Muhammad was a pedophile and islam revers pedophilia as a religion. Islam is a religion of pedophilia. Pedophilia is Allah’s will.

Are these statements illegal? They certainly insult muslim’s religious feelings. Let’s approach the issue logically:

As a 50 year-old man Muhammad was engaged to six or seven year old Aisha. Their marriage was “consummated” when Aisha was nine years old. It is possible to think that they were living in another age and Muhammad’s deeds must not be judged according to today’s standards, but as we have learned during the last few years, schoolbooks from the 50’s were racist when they spoke about ”negroes” (even if ”negro” was not a racist term at the time by anybody’s standards), it’s equally justified to call a child rapist who lived 1400 years ago a child rapist .´

What has to be done so that the bolded statements were not true? You must insist that

a) … Quran is not literally true (i.e Muhammad did not have sexual relations with a nine year old girl). This will not do, since according to Islamic doctrine and muslims’ opinion Quran is a literal word of Allah. Consummation and Aisha’s age cannot be denied without insulting muslims.

b) …Muhammad’s actions were not always acceptable. This will not do either, since according to muslims (and Tampere district court) criticizing Muhammad is the same as criticizing Allah and therefore blasphemy. The penalty is death. Muslim’s believe that Muhammad’s actions were the will of Allah. Because Muhammad had sexual relations with a child, that was Allah’s will as well.

As we see, all the argumentative ways to disprove the bolded statements have been theologically exhausted. The fact that Muhammad was a pedophile and Allah supported pedophilia can only be denied either by denying the literal truthfulness of Quran or Muhammad’s status as a messenger of Allah whose actions are according to the will of Allah.

Therefore I repeat my claim:

Prophet Muhammad was a pedophile and islam revers pedophilia as a religion. Islam is a religion of pedophilia. Pedophilia is Allah’s will.

The next bait reads:

Robbing bypassers and living at taxpayers’ expense as a parasite is a national, possibly genetic characteristic of Somalis.

Is this claim inappropriate? My fellow blogger Kekke filed a complaint to the Media Council for the editorial that appeared in newspaper Kaleva, in which killing people while intoxicated was described as a national, possibly genetic characteristic of Finns. Media Council dismissed the complaint. According to Council secretary Nina Porra:

”The writer probably refers to studies, in which heavy drinking has been observed to be a specific feature in Finnish drinking culture. It has also been observed that there is a correlation between intoxication and violence. The genetic backround of the problem is not handled as a fact, but the writer gives his own opinion.”

Naturally, the decisions made by Media Council are not legally binding so inquisitor Illman doesn’t have to take notice. But on the other hand, “incitement against ethnic group” is a felony and because Illman (whom the matter belongs to) has not reacted to the Kaleva article, it can be concluded that negative ethnic and genetic stereotypes can be published as long as they are not handled as facts.

We can’t think that there are different rules for different people in Finland, can we?
Naturally, not all Somalis commit robberies or live at taxpayers’ expense, but not all Finns kill while intoxicated either.

Somalis who constitute 0.2 per cent of Finland’s total population commit 12 per cent of robberies reported to the Police. One in ten Somalis living in Finland has a job. Committing robberies and living at taxpayers’ expense are a lot more common among Somalis related to their share of the population than killing while intoxicated among the ethnic Finns. Therefore, I present my assumption (that I do not regard as fact):

Robbing bypassers and living at taxpayers’ expense as a parasite is a national, possibly genetic characteristic of Somalis.

With this, I wish Mika a nice day.

    Lisätietoja antavat apulaisvaltakunnansyyttäjä Jorma Kalske p. 010 362 0802 ja valtionsyyttäjä Mika Illman p. 010 362 0824.

    So it is this Jussi’s post: Muutama täky Illmanin Mikalle.

    This so amazing that it would be nice if you could translate the whole post for the English speaking public!

  2. The following document provided by the state prosecutor proves the sorry state of Finnish justice system.

    Prosecution document (PDF in Finnish)

    Kalske’s interpretation concerning the offensiveness of the text is something that should not exist in a country that claims to be a Western democracy.

    Welcome to Finlandistan!

  3. Europe is filled with Marxists who use the Muslims to weaken our countries. Our free Western world is over — unless we fight back. Together. Physically.

  4. The only thing needed pyhiscally, is for people to get off their comfortable sofas and pick the phone and call their politicians to express their concern about Islamization, as well as becoming active in other anti-Islamization activism.

  5. Whenever I refer to the politics of absurdity I illustrate by the insane Finnish policy of importing refugees from Somalia.

    Can anyone seriously conjure up a more crazy policy doomed to failure?

  6. What has made us so insanely hate our own civilization that we do stuff like this? I still just can’t believe it that the barbaric ideology of Islam is so warmly invited in Europe. Why? Is it still Marx that haunts us? Or is it our guilt about European fascist moment? Hard to say I guess. Like most people I am still in denial, maybe just like many Jews in the 1930’s must have been. And that makes me wonder, what did these people go through in that period in time.

    One thing is for sure; the current situation is not at all stable. Opposition forces are slowly growing in Europe, harsh repression is the response. Unknown is the outcome. But one thing is for sure: change is coming…

  7. There are two aspects:
    – Islam and pedophilia
    – Somalians, who would be robbers because of genetic characteristics.

    There is pedophilistic characteristics in islam. It can be criticized.
    I recognize islamism as a Totalitarian system. It is ok to criticize Islam.

    But it is racism, if e.g. Somalians are told be robbers etc., because of
    “genetic characteristics”.
    I think there is racism in the part which concerns Somalians.

  8. You would have a point if that were Halla-aho’s aim, but it wasn’t. He was only drawing attention to the hypocricy of the state where ethnic groups are concerned.

    Read what he wrote once again, and then get back to me. KGS

  9. Long time ago I escaped from communist E.Europe to Finland, but when I saw what I ascaped from are coming after me there I left to West

    For an objective and uncorrupted observer/reader the police investigation and the court proceedings of the case #1200-K81114-07 — B 4586-08 must appear as framed. The Police manipulates, procedural errors are committed and the hole trial shows an unacceptable intellectual and logical confusion.
    Go NewSweden (or rather Kretinostan)! Go!

    Also the Swedish variant of Scandinavian languages have a word justitiemord, which is literally translated justice murder. The term exists in several languages and nowdays, with capital punishment decreasing or nonexisting, the expression has acquired an extended meaning, namely any conviction of a person of a crime he/she did not commit. The retention of the term murder both demonstrates universal abhorrence against wrongful convictions and awareness of how destructive wrongful convictions are. Justitemord can be translated to miscarriage of justice which is sometimes synonymous with wrongful conviction, referring to a conviction reached in an unfair, maybe framedup or disputed trial.

  11. Halla-aho did not “combine” Islam and its “sacred” institutions with pedophilia, Mohammed did:

    “My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse took over and wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was brought in while Muhammad was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. The other men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old” (Tabari 9:131).

    “Narrated ‘Aisha [Mohammed’s six-year-old bride and nine-year-old sexual “partner”]: ‘Allah’s Apostle said (to me), “You were shown to me twice in (my) dream [before I married you]. Behold, a man was carrying you in a silken piece of cloth and said to me, ‘She is your wife, so uncover her,’ and behold, it was you. I would then say (to myself), ‘If this is from Allah, then it must happen.'”‘” (Bukhari Volume 9, Book 87, Number 139 and 140).

    “Narrated Aisha: The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became alright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age” (Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234).

    “A’isha . . . reported: Allah’s Apostle . . . married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old” (Muslim Book 8, Number 3310).

    “Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death)” (Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64 and 65).

    “Narrated ‘Ursa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88).

    “Narrated Hisham’s father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consum[mat]ed that marriage when she was nine years old” (Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236).

    “Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: The Apostle of Allah . . . married me when I was seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. According to Bishr’s version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to the Apostle of Allah . . . and he took up cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door, and I burst into laughter” (Bukhari Book 41, Number 4915).

    “Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: When we came to Medina, the women came to me when I was playing on the swing, and my hair were up to my ears. They brought me, prepared me, and decorated me. Then they brought me to the Apostle of Allah . . . and he took up cohabitation with me, when I was nine” (Bukhari Book 41, Number 4917).

    “Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)” (Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151).

    “‘A’isha . . . reported that Allah’s Apostle . . . married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he [Mohammed] died she was eighteen years old” (Muslim Book 8, Number 3311).

  12. I like your post…
    Nice your blog… nice you too…

  13. Your situation is gaining attention worldwide. Greetings and good wishes from Houston, TX USA.

    I'd also like to think the Finnish government for proving that we Americans don't have a monopoly on stupid.

  14. Thanks Ron, much appreciated. we need to get these highly counterproductive laws off the books before too much damage is created. KGS

  15. CHANCELLOR OF JUSTICE MIKKO PUUMALAINEN RUINS FINLAND'S REPUTATION AGAIN

    According to one blogger, an investigative journalist, Mikko Puumalainen is the wrong man for the job as vice Chancellor of Justice in Finland. Despite earlier actions by the Finnish authority which is supposed investigate and correct anomolies in handling of cases by civil servants, Puumalainen decided to do just the opposite of what the Office had done in 2006-2007 and let the University of Helsinki go, despite an obviously scandelous mistake on their part.
