CAIRO: Two Egyptian Christian children, Nabil Rizk, 10, and Mina al-Farag, 9, have been taken from their parents and arrested after a Muslim man accused the two youngsters of desecrating the holy Qur’an in a small village in Bani Sweif in the Nile Delta region.
They will face the public prosecutor on Sunday as the investigation begins.
Blasphemy charges know no age limit, but as Deputy Secretary General Eliasson reminds us, freedom of speech is a privilege that only Muslims are entitled to when they’re burning churches or spray painting graffiti on ads that they disapprove of. That privilege is not extended to children being charged with blasphemy by a Muslim Brotherhood regime that we helped erect in the name of freedom.
There are two possible approaches to Islam’s blasphemy mandate. Either we begin obeying an unjust law and hope that tamps down Muslim violence, a tactic that clearly does not work, or we defy the law and make it irrelevant.
