Max is right about the various islamist political factions using the 'palestinian' people (arab bedouin origin) as pawns in their strategy. Fatah, hamas, hezbollah, the PA and previously the PLO et al

Mashugana would probably be more appropriate in this case.

So you haven’t got a certificate in Segway cleaning, from Saltech, IoM University college, or even your Manor.  First time for everything. You’ve never admitted not knowing about something before

They say that talking to yourself is the first sign of madness.

I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years
Been over the edge for yonks
Been working me buns off for bands

I've always been mad, I know I've been mad
Like the most of us, very hard to explain why you're mad
Even if you're not mad

Pink Floyd "Speak to me"  First track on the first LP I bought :)

Learn something everyday - I've clearly never read segue before and when Segway came along thought it was using the word I'd heard defining a transition from one subject to another, while clearly it wasn't!

I think the guy on Manx Radio on the evening pre-recorded show has learnt that word too. Doesn't stop using it.

I have to say I don't think there is much to be proud of in this thread.  Rudeness, insults etc.  Shame.

TBF, the title of the thread is "Freedom of Thought and Speech" ;)

TBF, that is half the problem.

People seem to have a problem differentiating between what its "okay" to think, and what its "okay" to say.

A swear word or two to address a fellow poster, must be more acceptable than the racism shown in several threads lately ?

Can you link to these allegedly, 'racist' threads?

Reread my post. I said racism IN threads.

Restriction in free speech is only one small step away from book burning, and restriction in free speech constrains thought let alone freedom of thought.

IMO any constraints applied to free speech, no matter what is being said, is a very dangerous step first step on a very dangerous road.

Incitement to hate when based on nonsense, now that's a different matter, but when it's based on truth ---.
