Enough is Enough

I'm afraid things are not too good for we lovers of freedom at the moment, not only has Pat Condell's video Welcome to Saudi Britain been banned by YouTube, but now it appears that Sherry Jones' book The Jewel of Medina has been put on permanent hold after the fire-bombing of the London offices of its publisher Gibson Square Books last week. It's owner, Martin Rynja has gone into hiding. The book was supposed to be out in on Oct 15th but now only its American publisher Beaufort Books will continue as planned to publish this novel on that date. Meanwhile Gibson Square's London office remains boarded up and Martin Rynja continues discussions with security forces on how he can avoid being killed for wanting to publish a book in the free world.

My question to you is this:

What can we do? What can we the people of this fragile free world do to stop the incessant erosion of our hard-earned freedoms by this most dreadful of ideologies?
We can't wait for Gordon Brown or David Cameron, for George W Bush, Barak Obama or John McCain. They are actually more genuinely afraid of losing their lives than even of losing their pensions.
We the people have to do something. Something that will let everyone else know that we will no longer stand by as a mutually contradictory world ideology threatens our liberty, our freedom, our human rights.
I want you to make your suggestions about what you and I and all our fellow lovers of freedom can do. Remember that YouTube may not allow us much more time to speak together. But while they do, please share your ideas on how we can effect global change. How we can mark a line in the sand that states, this is our free world. Our parents and grandparents fought for it. We want it for our children. Enough is enough. I say this in peace and without any desire for violence. We only need humour, intelligence and strong resolve to win this battle. We only need to shine a bright light on the dark reality to reveal what is there. But more than this, at this crucial period in western history, we need each other.

I read in the Telegraph that the publishing of the book has been postponed indefinitely. I don't blame the publisher after his house/business has been firebombed.

It can be bought from Amazon £11.21...although I shall request it be put in stock in my local library first, even though it's probably not my cup of tea.

In response to the video.

Yet another attack on our freedom of expression.

I suggest that a hundred people or more go into the towns and cities of there countries all seperatly, wearng a t-shirt with a statent or criticism printed on it concerning the erosion of our freedoms. Each would wear a gag on their mouth as a symbol of that silencing. Go about ones business fro a few hours as if 'nothing is wrong'.
