Canada as repressive as Afghanistan

Compare what is happening to journalists in Afghanistan to what Canada, with it's vaunted Human Rights Council, is trying to do to Mark Steyn. Granted Canada is not going for the death penalty, but the end results are the same, to shut up voices critical of Islam.
Afghan journalist sentenced to death
An Afghan journalist sentenced to death for distributing an article that allegedly violated Islam is actually being punished for reporting by his brother about abuses by northern warlords, a media group said Wednesday.
Sayed Parwez Kaambakhsh, 23, was sentenced to death Tuesday by a three-judge panel in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif for distributing a report he printed off the Internet to fellow journalism students at Balkh University.

Steyn: The Canadian 'Human Rights' Sham
NRO: Free Steyn
the radical Islamic front group calling itself the “Canadian Islamic Congress” has filed mindcrime complaints against author Mark Steyn with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, in an effort to stifle criticism of Islam and intimidate other writers. It’s the legal jihad in action.

One other word of caution. The AP article carries a by line from a Afghan reporter named Amir Shah, whom I mentioned in the case of the incident in Afghanistan involving Marines who were ambushed and then accused of killing several civilllians which resulted in a spineless general ordering the unit out of the country.
