Fail. There is simply no way to have Freedom of Religion without also having Freedom From it. Religion is an active practice, Speech is merely the communication of Ideas and requires no Action. Everyone, including the Religious, has the Freedom to not be active in some others Religion.Ahmadinejad's position on Freedom of Speech is quite similar to Liberals position on Freedom of Religion.
Both see it as Freedom from speech/religion.
Just as Liberals claim it means 'freedom' from hearing/seeing others' religious activities, Ahmadinejad thinks it means 'freedom' from our speech he doesn't like.
