The Blanket

Straight Talk vs Orthodoxy



Derick Perry • 12 March 2006

I am a regular reader of the Blanket and a supporter of the right of dissent and freedom of expression. Quite a lot of the views expressed I disagree with but support the right of contributors to voice it and am always interested in hearing other view points. I attach a file which may have already been seen by many but given your laudable stand against the fear induced gag imposed on mainstream media regarding the Danish cartoons and if you have not already seen it, may be of passing interest to you. It would seem that this dialogue originated on Al Jazzera. No doubt this woman is on someone's hit list somewhere!

Perhaps you may care to make it available to other dissenters on The Blanket.

Readers may view the clip referred to above via this link.
