World’s Hypocritical Standards on Religious Tolerance

While Satanist students from Clemson University, in the US are carrying out public bible burning exercises, which the press applaud as an exercise of personal inalienable rights, (http://www.olivetreeviews.org/news/headlines/item/12361-satanist-students-at-clemson-university-hold-bible-torching-ceremony), the whole world keeps mum when Islamists visit perceived insults on their religion or its symbols with extreme violence.  For instance Gov Ahok (see last edition of CA!) finally lost his governorship, and might in addition be on his way to jail for supposedly speaking against the Koran.  In the latest developments, Pakistan is currently pressing Facebook and Twitter to reveal identities of Pakistanis resident in other countries who dare post anti-Islam materials even from those countries. And there is hardly any outrage!. https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/03/pakistan-asks-facebook-and-twitter-to-identify-pakistanis-outside-country-who-post-anti-islam-material
            Pakistan has actually gone further to mobilizing other Muslim countries to press the UN for “legal options” against “blasphemy” on social media.  Ambassadors from 22 Islamic countries were present at the inaugural meeting to strategize on the issue. http://gulftoday.ae/portal/e3410db6-76a6-485a-a4f1-41f546f1175a.aspx.   
            Meanwhile, prosecutors in Pakistan have been offering Christians out-of-court settlements if they would be willing to convert to Islam.  Yet seeking the conversion of a Moslem to Christianity is punishable by death.
