May As Well Learn To Speak Arabic

I like the introductory sentence to this story:

Here’s a nauseating story from Germany, where they’ve apparently already accepted their new masters: German court convicts man for insulting Islam.

Compare that to this statement, which comes from our friends at CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations):

"The right to free speech is not absolute," Rishi said. "It does not give a right to defame Prophet Muhammad or any other" religious figure.

Defaming religious figures isn't nice, and it certainly isn't civil. But--well, do I really need to go on here, or can anyone with more than four operational brain cells finish my thought correctly?
