Free speech has its limits

This morning I heard the most terrible news on Israel Radio. There is a planned demonstration against Israel outside the Israeli Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden in which they plan to burn a Torah Scroll. The Swedish police is considering allowing this in the name of free speech. There must be a limit to free speech, and it must not be allowed to insult the religious or any other sensitivities of others. There must be a very loud voice against the burning of any sacred books, whether they be a Torah scroll, Koran, Bible, or any other sacred texts. This coming on HMD, we know what the burning of such texts led to. Therefore Sweden, or any other country or group must be made aware that there is a limit to free speech.
