I have no trite or easy words to say in defence of the killing of the innocents. I would only add that this murder of the innocents also happened when the British Government bombed Dresden - should we ban UK government websites; every week to both Palestinian and Israeli innocents - should we ban Palestinian and Israeli websites; to the innocents who died in Vietnam - should the US Govt have their websites banned, or if they kill innocents in Iraq; in the North of Ireland, on both sides of the divide - should we ban Protestant and Catholic from having websites; in Chechenya - should we ban Russian websites; then there was Tienanmen Square - should we ban Chinese websites and save them the trouble of doing it themselves? And of course, the USA in September 2001 - more innocents, more lives devastated.
In short, the killing of innocents is hateful all over the world. Even when we take up arms to protect the innocent, we can often end up devastating the innocent as well.
So rather than ban all rival groups, I suggest we "study the opposition" and try to understand them through what they publish - the good, the bad and the ugly.
Otherwise who's next? Homosexuals in Zimbabwe? Christian websites in an Islamic state? Dissidents in China?
It's not next, is it? It's already happening. The desire to "control" and the desire to "censor" even what is private.
Having worked as a prison warden, I know first hand what an unpleasant intrusive job it is to have to censor people's private mail home. And yet that's exactly what we may drift to within our various states.
The Internet freedoms need to be defended vigorously, and the trouble is that if we start by banning some groups, we may end up banning many. It is a very dangerous precedent.
Clearly depraved child porn, or snuff movies, or specific instructions to injure people have to be addressed. It is clear that the Spanish authorities have already taken a political decision within their own jurisdiction to ban Batasuna materials.
Would you support the Russian government in suppressing Chechen materials in the same way?
Minority opinions, minority views, minority causes can be attacked in any society.
So can innocent people.
In the end, I believe, freedom is strong enough to prevail in the struggle against hatred and ignorance, as long as we don't jettison freedom along the way, or reduce our own standards, and become, ourselves, the persecutors of the innocent.
