Iranian Artist convicted of islamophobia in Denmark speaks

An Iranian women who lived in Iran is speaking honestly about Islamic codes, and she is prosecuted in ..... Denmark. Europe's descent into fascist enforcement of the sharia is nothing short of stunning. Theater of the absurd. But it's not -- it's real, and it's murder.
Iranian-American activist Banafsheh Zand said: "Where do the dhimmi members of the Danish judiciary get off telling a woman who is a law abiding citizen of their society that she can not take issues with the traits of a society that she ran from, and took shelter in Denmark in? The European Union's fascist laws, and their lackeys in each European country are running amok. Their refusal to listen to newcomers who have embraced the values that was a product of thinkers of their own societies and their will to self-destruct is perhaps one of the most telling and hypocritical in the history of man. As social paradigms shift and paradoxes multiply within Europe, it is perhaps time to reevaluate European intellectual predominance all together.

"I am very convinced that Muslim men around the world rape, abuse and kill their daughters. This is, according to my understanding as a Danish-Iranian, due to a defective and inhumane culture – if you can even call it a culture at all. But you can say, I think, that it is a defective and inhumane religion whose textbook, the Koran, is more immoral, deplorable and crazy than manuals of the two other global religions combined."
Bazrafkan had appropriated the text from an article published by free speech activist Lars Pedersen, who had also been charged and convicted of racism after publishing it on the online newspaper 180grader.dk
