Denmark is again ready to exercise its free speech and press principles by releasing a controversial novel about Mohammed's child wife An American novel about the 6-year-old wife of Mohammed, Aisha, may end up being released in Denmark, after publishing...

An American novel about the 6-year-old wife of Mohammed, Aisha, may end up being released in Denmark, after publishing company Random House dropped its plans to print the book.

Danish publishers association Trykkeselskabet has given its blessing to Sherry Jones' novel 'The Jewel of Medina' to be released in Denmark. Random House pulled out of its contract to publish the book after fear of reprisals from Muslims, and Jones' agent is looking for buyers.

The novel was brought into the spotlight in the US after Denise Spellman, a professor of Islamic history at the University of Texas, was quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying the book was 'much more controversial than the Mohammed drawings from Denmark'. She called any decision to publish the book a 'declaration of war' against Muslims.

But Trykkeselskabet indicated that it felt the book needed to be published.

'Fear or threats should not keep a book from being published,' association spokeswoman Helle Merete Brix told Nyhedsavisen newspaper. 'It would be principally and entirely a renewal of all that Denmark has already been through with the Mohammed cartoon affair.'

The book is a fictitious account of Mohammed's revelations told through Aisha's eyes. Mohammed had 13 wives in all - Aisha being the youngest and, according to many sources, his favourite.

But Spellman called the novel 'soft-core pornography' and that it 'takes advantage of people's ignorance' of Islam.

Jones' agent, Natasha Kern, wrote to Trykkeselskabet to congratulate them on their decision to approve the book's publication in Denmark.

'When you consider what's happened in your country, I admire your readiness to ensure that freedom of expression is not obstructed.'

The Islamic Faith Society in Copenhagen had, as of Friday morning, not taken an official position on the book's publication.

The islamic faith society (an umbrella organisation of groups that under normal condition are good for nothing but bickering amongst themself) would do well to just let this one pass.

Denmark is apparently one of the few countries who have the balls, to print wahabi islam critical books. We are aware that we are bordering bad taste, and very well so, but someone has to draw a line in the sand. And if you compare the mohammad drawings, or this book to any and all the anti jew propaganda comming out of any and all "muslim" countries, we have case of. STFU!!! They want free speech for themself, but wants to limit everybody elses in the same breath by coercing people into self cencoring. The answer to such an offer simply must be NO!

I know that the book is based on spurious sources at best, and i dislike its content, but i will defend it nonetheless.

The intention here is not to support free speech, but to stir shit up and be more divisive. Divide and conquer, it's the oldest trick in the book. Free speech has nothing to do with deliberately being insensitive or inflammatory, the intention of that clause was to prevent the state from censoring legitimate criticism or suppressing progressive ideas. Only in modern times, have we equated freedom of speech as an entitlement to be insensitive, offensive, or plain immature. Freedom in any sphere of life also entails responsibility, it's not terribly responsible or mature to make a point, get attention, or shed light on an issue by being deliberately confrontational, insensitive, and apathetic. I support free speech too, in fact was one of the Muslims who defended right after the Muhammad Cartoons incident. I recognized the fact that being a juvenile rebel is legal, but a hallmark of insecurity and immaturity. So associating free speech with a right to be deliberately inflammatory or offensive has nothing to do with it's original purpose and is nothing more than an abuse of that right / privilege / civil liberty; a perversion of it. I also believe that the state should not have a monopoly over violence, but I also believe people should not need to resort to it. At the same time, if someone's asking for it, they really have no reason to bitch about it later. Fuck the libtards and fuck the fundamentalist. There, I just pissed both of you off by exercising (or abusing) my right to free speech, or I could have been more mature and grown up about it, and refrained from being derogatory or condescending all together... by avoiding needles [fucking] profanity and talking like an adult that doesn't need to rely on crude language to be expressive;).

there is no such thing as 'free speech'. free speech is an anathema. all words come with value attached, otherwise we would not use them.

The prophet never said he married Aisha at the age of nine. Go back to arab history chronicles and u will find out Aisha was born 17 yrs before Hijra, i.e emigration to Medina. Which means before he was the prophet he was, Aisha was still 17. After the Hijra when the prophet started marying, she was atleast 17.

This is means miss Aisha was already 17 yrs old when Mohammad emigrated. She was not his wife yet (and she was 17 yrs old...at least)

Joseph, Mary's husband, was "90 years old" when he married 12 to 14-year old Mary! Was he too a pedophile?




Theres a good discussion in that link.

Well put and an excellent cartoon to reinforce your point.

Haha, I believe the same way as you about these divided 'Ummah' societies. Here in the US, we have 2 (or more?) major divisions called the Isna, or Islamic society of North America, and Cair. As long as people are joing these organizations, there cannot be an Ummah and the Muslims will remain weak and oppressed.
