Religion and free speech: a couple of links

Two powerful articles on the threat to freedom of expression from political Islam:

Johann Hari on the shameful UN vote against 'defamation' of religion (I know it's only a non-binding resolution, but why isn't there some kind of campaign against this?)

and Christopher Hitchens , writing two decades after the Rushdie affair, on the West's self-imposed 'cultural fatwa'.
