So, the Pakistani government has decided to block Facebook until May 31st in protest of a Draw Mohammad Day page (which can be found here). Aside from the fact that only evil heathens full of hate who deserve to die would draw Mohammad, it's all that evil freedom that allows us to make stupid Facebook groups that is really the problem.
We shouldn't be free to do that, 'cause it hurts their feelings and is against their religion and stuff. Also, there needs to be a more permanent solution (emphasis mine):
But the Islamic Lawyers' Forum asked the Lahore High Court on Wednesday to order the government to fully block Facebook because it allowed the page to be posted in the first place, said the deputy attorney general of Punjab province, Naveed Inayat Malik.
The court complied with the request and ordered the government to block the site until the end of May, Malik said.
Lawyers outside the courtroom hailed the ruling, chanting "Down with Facebook."
Later in the day, the telecommunications authority ordered all Internet service providers to block Facebook, it said in a statement.
Pakistan's minister of religious affairs, Hamid Saeed Kazmi, said the ban was only a temporary solution and suggested the government organize a conference of Muslim countries to figure out ways to prevent the publication of images of the prophet.
So, let me get this straight.more...

Furthermore, to suggest otherwise would probably be racist.

As a wise man once said, you can’t reason a man out of that which he wasn’t reasoned into, so rather than trying to politely explain the virtues of the law, they’d better start thinking about reciprocal boycotts. Take a piece of California’s ass economically and let state officials over there deal with the headaches of their own business leaders. And at some point, some high-profile Arizona pol really should call the bluff of sanctuary cities by offering to release captured illegals into their custody in lieu of deporting them. If Gavin Newsom and Mike Bloomberg and Antonio Villaraigosa are all so hot to welcome the “undocumented,” fantastic: Arizona’s got an endless supply and will be happy to provide however many to San Francisco and New York and L.A. that they’d like.Of course, as a Californian, this would be disastrous for me, personally, but it might just be the kind of kick in the ass that our political leaders could use. An actual example of burning down the village in order to save it.
Incidentally, this is not at all related or anything.
