Facebook, Draw Mohammad Day, and Pakistan - oh my!

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.

You hate us because we're free.

You hate us because we can express ourselves.

You hate us because we're wealthy.

You hate us because we're strong.

But you especially hate us because we made a Facebook group with some 40,000 members dedicated to drawing a picture of your prophet - after members of your religion threatened to fucking kill someone for not actually drawing pictures of your prophet.

Does that about fucking sum it up?
