Outline for the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards Consultations

An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

The committee’s mission is to write new international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. They solicited suggestions from the member nations to get the process started. Islam, because it is false and malicious, can not tolerate criticism. Islamic law prescribes the death penalty for any criticism of Allah, Moe, and their doctrines. Muslims, acting through the OIC and its clique in the United Nations, are demanding the enactment and enforcement of national and international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. While specifically complaining of the Danish Cartoons and the short documentary created by Geert Wilders, their demand for censorship is much broader.

Unlike Iran and Pakistan, the United States did not submit demands for criminalizing criticism of Islam. Unfortunately, the two page submission, which begins on page 26, displays an a high level of cognitive dissonance. [ Emphasis added.]

The United States wishes to reiterate its committment to fighting racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance and looks forward to working with other States contributing to initiatives that promote tolerance and respect for diversity. The United States is home to individuals from diverse racial, religions and ethnic backgrounds. .We are profoundly aware of the destructive consequences of racism and understand the concerns that have given rise to the work of this Committee.

“Related intolerance” is a code phrase for “Islamophobia”, which is equated with racism. There is no rational basis for fighting rational objections to Islamic doctrine and practice!

The United States has learned from the experience in our own country how crucial robust free expression and a thriving marketplace of ideas are to the promotion of tolerance, religious freedom, greater understanding among individuals of different backgrounds, and ultimately to the defeat of racist and discriminatory ideas in societies. Similarly, the United States believes in the importance of engaging in proactive governmental outreach and policies to
assure racial, ethnic, and religious groups are protected and respect for diversity is promoted. Such governmental outreach can take a variety of forms, including the holding of town hall meetings and conferences with affected groups to listen and learn of the challenges they face and develop ways for the government to better address their concerns. These actions, which are based upon a moral and social responsibility to combat advocacy to national, racial or religious
hatred, rather than a legal obligation to punish hateful expression, are essential to simultaneously maintaining robust free expression and allowing the government to take an active role in the promotion of tolerance and respect.

This would appear, at first glance to be a robust defense of our first amendment freedom of expression. But an examination of the first listed objective throws a bucket of cold water on that hope. “promotion of tolerance”, in this context, can only mean tolerance of the intolerable: Islam.

Combating advocacy to religious hatred requires combating Islam because Islamic doctrine expressed in the Qur’an is the primary source of religion based hatred.

“Rather than a legal obligation to punish hateful expression” is a loaded clause which, while appearing to deny demands for blasphemy laws, actually condemns the Danish Cartoons, Fitna, and all other truthful negative expressions about Islam. as “hate speech”.

“Promotion of Tolerance and respect” is an indication of irrational idocy. In the current context, it can only mean “tolerance of and respect for Islam”. Islam is not worthy of respect and must never be tolerated because it is perpetual war and confers an open season license to kill, enslave, rape, pillage & plunder.

The United States does not believe that amendments to the international human rights legal framework – or new interpretations of existing legal obligations – are warranted to fight the scourges cf racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. Rather than seeking additional restrictions to expression, the United States advocates for more robust governmental outreach policies with respect to racial, ethnic and religious groups as well as the institution of appropriate legal regimes that deal with discriminatory acts and hate crimes.

Nothing is warranted to fight “related intolerance“, which is a code phrase for opposition to Islam. Ordinarily, I would happily accept the rejection of Islam’s contumacious demand for legislation unconstitutionally restricting my right of free expression. But that rejection is coupled with an implicit acceptance of the enemy’s false premise, which renders it null and void.

The United States views racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance as serious challenges facing the international community and believes they must be dealt with by the Ad Hoc Committee in a methodical and deliberate manner. The United States submits that this process of self-examination and action by international community begin with greater opporttutities to exchange views and address empirical data and practice on matters related to racial, ethnic, and religious diversity, discrimination, and intolerance so as to broaden our common understanding of these important issues and provide a solid foundation f or a broad-based consensus further actions and initiatives.

Inclusion of “related intolerance“, which refers to objections to Islamic doctrine & practice, implicitly accepts the enemy’s false premise and can not be accepted. It makes me ashamed to be an American. How can my government sink so low as to condemn my advocacy of life & liberty and demand that I tolerate the existence of a predatory institution whose mission is mercenary and whose method is to deprive free men of life, liberty and property?

The submission offers a list of suggested substitutes for the legislative program demanded by Islam. It proposes to study the cause of “advocacy of hatred”, ignoring the fact that the damnable doctrines enshrined in the Qur’an, preached in every Mosque and taught in every Madrassa, are the principal source of that advocacy.

Another suggestion constitutes an irrational surrender.

  • Evolution of Legal and Policy Frameworks: An assessment of the evolution of domestic legal and policy frameworks dealing with these issues and how effective they have been in dealing with intolerance and discrimination. Such an assessrnent would also review any distinctions made within these frameworks between actions taken based upon a moral and social responsibility to combat advocacy to national, racial or religious hatred on the one hand and those based upon a legal obligation to prohibit such advocacy on the other, and analyze the relative results of each;

To the extent that a person is rational and informed, he will hate Islam, and no attempt should be made to reduce his ardor or extinguish the fire of hatred. Islam is inimical to human life and liberty. Its supremacism, triumphalism and intolerance render it intolerable. The concept of a divine mandate to conquer the world, terrorizing and killing or enslaving everyone who resists is absolutely intolerable. How can there be a legal obligation to prevent rational discussion of the doctrines and practices of a religion of world domination through genocidal warfare?

While ostensibly objecting to demands for legislation eliminating our right of free expression, our government is actually pandering and attempting to appease the enemy by implicitly accepting their false premise.

AdHoc Cmte: Pakistani Submission

Outline for the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards Consultations

An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

The committee’s mission is to write new international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. They solicited suggestions from the member nations to get the process started.

Pakistan’s submission to the committee begins on page 39 and ends on page 41. Since Pakistan acts as the representative of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, there is an emphasis on protecting Islam from criticism. It refers to Human Rights Council decision 3/103, which created the committee, and to ICERD.

The submission lists several “Action Points”, the following items are from that list. [Emphasis added.]

  • further defining the existence of link between an act of incitement and the likelihood of a violation, or the threshold required for reaching such a determinant consistent and uniform application and maximize protection for actual or potential victims.
  • development of new internationally binding normative standards in the area of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance while incorporating the following contemporary issues;
  • defamation of religions, religious personalities, holy books, scriptures and symbols,
  • provocative portrayals of objects of religious veneration as a malicious ` violation of the spirit of tolerance,
  • prohibition of publication of material with the aim of protecting the rights of others and against seriously or gratuitously offensive attacks on matters regarded as sacred by the followers of any religion,
  • racio-religious profiling,intolerance and discrimination,
  • incitement to religious hatred, discrimination and violence,
  • abuse of the right to freedom of expression in the context of racio-religious profiling, negative or insulting stereotyping, incitement to
    hatred and violence,
  • Islamophobia, xenophobia, and ideological racism,
  • new instrument should provide for;
    • mandatory prohibition by law to- eliminate racio-religious profiling or profiling based on any grounds of discrimination recognized under
      international human rights law with provisions for legal action against perpetrators, as well as legal guarantees to remedy and reparation for victims,
    • legal restrictions on the dissemination or distribution or production, in public or otherwise, of all ideas in any farm based upon racial and religious superiority or hatred and incitement to hatred, and violence,including by use of modern information and communication technologies,
    • legal prohibition of publication of material that negatively stereotypes, insults, or uses offensive language cm matters regarded by followers of any religion or belief as sacred or inherent to their dignity as human beings, with the aim or protecting their fundamental human rights,
    • legal restriction to public insults and defamation, public incitement to violence, threat against a person or a grouping of persons
      on me grounds of their race, color, language, religion, nationality, or national or ethnic origin,

    The bottom line: Pakistan & the OIC join with Iran in demanding national and international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. Western Civilization is under attack by Islam. Effective and adequate defense requires objective identification & description of the enemy and its doctrine set. The proposals from Iran & Pakistan are designed to hamper our self defense efforts.

    They imply that the Danish Cartoons, which portray Muhammad as a terrorist, which, by his own admission he was, constitutes defamation of religion. They imply that Fitna, which juxtaposes Allah’s Jihad imperatives in the Qur’an with Islamic violence, constitutes defamation of religion. They demand that all such expressions be criminalized.

    Ad Hoc Cmte: Iranian Submission

    Outline for the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards Consultations

    An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

    The committee’s mission is to write new international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. They solicited suggestions from the member nations to get the process started.

    The Iranian submission begins on page 12 of the pdf. and ends on page 17. Although capturing the attitude & meaning of the document through excerpts is not satisfactory, I will not reproduce the entire five page submission here. You can click through to the pdf file and enter 12 in the page window to go directly to the full text of the submission.

    The pdf is a scanned document, requiring the use of ocr to cull excerpts. Unfortunately, the printer which created the document needs a head cleaning, and the plate on which it was scanned is dusty, so that ocr was extremely difficult. I have therefore run the spelling checker on the excerpts, they may deviate slightly from the original, but care has been taken to avoid changing the meaning of the text. [Emphasis added.]

    The Iranian submission is not novel, it rehashes malicious malarkey from previous resolutions. The following documents were referenced in the text.

    They are off to a fast start in their Introduction, asserting that Islamophobia is a growing trend, becoming pervasive and often officially condoned.

    The growing trend of defamation of religions is arising from the following factors: the conflation of race, culture and religion, concept of clash of civilizations and religions, all these provides fertile soil for the defamation of religions.
    And also on the fight against terrorism, based on defense of national identity and security, it is reduced to religious
    dimension.

    Note the clause which I emphasized. Who is it that conflates race with religion? If you can’t answer that question, re-read the initial post in this series :
    Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards, paying close attention to the quote from the report of the African Regional Conference in preparation for the Durban Review.

    Unfortunately, insults and intolerance against Islam are being provided intellectual justification by Western scholars
    and political lobbies who espouse anti-Islamic agendas, hence lending support to ideological violence against
    Muslims. Sophisticated slogans are used to provoke systematic insults against Islam. This phenomenon reflects
    the Islarnophobia which afflicts segments of western society.

    This paragraph inverts cause and effect. We developed anti-Islamic agendas precisely because of Islam’s anti-Christian & anti-western doctrines, agendas & actions. Our accurate descriptions of Islamic doctrines & practices are labled insults and intolerance. Accurate and well documented descriptions of Islamic sanctification & mandate of genocidal conquest and terrorism are labled “insults” and “intolerance”.
    The last paragraph of the introduction is severely overloaded by implicit reference to the documents listed and linked above.

    Lack of action to prevent the reprinting of blasphemous caricatures, and indifference in airing the inflammatory documentary against the holy Quran will be perceived as manifestation of insincerity towards the principles and objectives of various efforts within the United Nations system aiming at promoting understanding and respect among cultures and civilizations. [Links added.]

    It should now be clear to you that the Iranian agenda includes criminalizing criticism of Islam, specifically the Danish Cartoons and Geert Wilders’ Fitna.

    The cartoons depict Muhammad as a terrorist, which, by his own admission, he was. He never threw a bomb, because explosives were invented after he died. he used the primitive weaponry available in the seventh century to terrorize his victims with ruthless slaughter. If you do not comprehend this fact, open your Qur’an to 33:26, 59:2 & 59:13 and read them carefully.

    Fitna demonstrates the obvious connection between Islamic doctrine enshrined in the Qur’an. This fact is documented in another blog post. It is extremely unlikely that anyone else will reveal to you the source of Islam’s intense determination to criminalize criticism of itself. I will: It comes from Islamic law, codified in Reliance of the Traveller. Book O, which treats of “Justice”, includes an outline of the conditions imposed upon dhimmis, who were “people of the book” subjugated by Muslims under a “treaty of protection”. Chapter 11.10 lists five acts which violate the treaty of protection and subject the dhimmi to immediate execution. Here is the fifth item in that list.

    -5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

    The perceptive reader will want to know what is impermissible to mention. O8.7 lists 20 items which entail apostasy, and describes the list as nearly endless. Here are a few relevant items from that list.

    -1- to prostrate to an idol, whether sarcastically, out of mere contrariness, or in actual conviction, like that of someone who believes the Creator to be something that has originated in time. Like idols in this respect are the sun or moon, and like prostration is bowing to other than Allah, if one intends reverence towards it like the reverence due to Allah;

    -2- to intend to commit unbelief, even if in the future. And like this intention is hesitating whether to do so or not: one thereby immediately commits unbelief;

    -3- to speak words that imply unbelief such as “Allah is the third of three,” or “I am Allah”-unless one’s tongue has run away with one, or one is quoting another, or is one of the friends of Allah Most High (wali, def: w33) in a spiritually intoxicated state of total oblivion (A: friend of Allah or not, someone totally oblivious is as if insane, and is not held legally responsible (dis: k13.1(O:) ) ), for these latter do not entail unbelief;

    -4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);

    -5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

    -6- to be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

    -7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;

    -14- to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims (ijma`, def: B7) is part of Islam, when it is well known as such, like the prayer (salat) or even one rak’a from one of the five obligatory prayers, if there is no excuse (def: u2.4);

    -15- to hold that any of Allah’s messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent;

    (n: `Ala’ al-din’ Abidin adds the following:

    -16- to revile the religion of Islam;

    -17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;

    -18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;

    -19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

    -20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )

    By now you must be wondering about the penalty. Islamic law has that covered, too.

    O8.1

    When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    O8.2

    In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

    Islamic law is clear on its face: any criticism of Allah or his Messenger gets you killed. The Ad Hoc Committee On Complementary Standards is only the latest tool developed in pursuit of that objective.

    Under the heading of “Legal Aspects”, Iran describes the cartoons & Fitna as “inconsistent with the spirit of the UN Charter” and various resolutions.

    The elimination of discrimination and the protection against Intolerance is in part a matter of legal protection.

    They jabber on with quotes about universal freedom, equality and dignity, without finding anything relevant to the matter at hand. The next paragraph is mired in excrement.

    Crucially, according to- article 20, paragraph.2 of the ICCPR, ” any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law” This provision represents a clear limitation to-the night to fee speech which according to article 19 of the ICCPR carries with it special duties and responsibilities.

    The cartoons do not advocate hatred, nor do they incite discrimination, hostility or violence. The same is true of Fitna. Few will perceive the irony in Islam’s specious assertion: it is their own scripture, tradition & jurisprudence which advocates hatred and incites violence. If Article 20 were to be enforced, the Qur’an, hadith & Shari’ah would be banned as incitement to violence!

    The committee on civil and Political Rights in its general comment 11 provided that these required prohibitions are fully compatible with the right to freedom of expression as contained in Article 19, the exercise of which carries with it special duties and responsibilities. This is clear indication that human rights instruments recognize provisions against incitement to religions hatred as being a completely legitimate- safeguard against the abuse of the right to free speech.

    Iran is asserting that accurately describing Allah’s genocidal Jihad imperatives which are found in Surahs Al-Anfal & At-Taubah and confirmed in Sahih Bukhari’s Books of Jihad, Khumus & Expedition and codified in Reliance of the Traveller Book O, Chapter 9, Paragraphs 8 & 9 must be legally prohibited as “incitement to religious hatred”. Islamic obedience to those imperatives has resulted in 270*106 premature deaths in the last 1400 years but we must be prevented, by judicial penalties, from mentioning it.

    Identifying the enemy and describing his doctrines is characterized as an abuse of free speech. This is nothing less than the aggressor’s program for depriving us of the ability to defend ourselves against his aggression.

    The last section of the submission is under the heading of Programme of Action.

    In sum, the right to freedom of expression should be exercised with the responsibilities and limitations as prescribed by law. The international community should initiate a global dialogue to promote a culture of tolerance and peace based on respect for human rights and cultural diversity and urges states, NGOs, religious bodies and media to support and promote such a dialogue. Developing the human rights language to address emerging issues such as defamation of religions was an important step forward that is of interest not only to Muslims but to all the internatioual community.

    Our freedom of expression must not include mention of Islam’s aggressive doctrines & practices: conquest, genocide & terrorism. A culture of tolerance and peace means being led, dumb like sheep, to the slaughter.

    Islamic Republic of Iran urges the Ad hoc Committee on the elaboration of complementary standards to call upon the States to stop the publication of blasphemous caricatures, Elms and media as well as the campaigns for anti-Islamic regulations to take all possible legal and administrative measures to prevent continuation of these deliberate offensive acts, which impinge greatly on the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion of the followers of Islam.

    They want to add wording to ICERD to criminalize every criticism of Islam. How in Hell does anything we write or say impinge on the liberty of Muslims? Why must they be allowed to continue in the arrogant assumption that they have a divine right and mission to kill, enslave, rape, pillage & plunder us?

    Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards

    Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards

    What does that title tell us? Only that a special purpose committee was instituted. “Complementary Standards” tells us nothing about its purpose. Complementary to what? What standards might the committee complete?

    We have only a high sounding title, for a committee instituted by men with lofty titles and low morals: the United Nations Human Rights Council.
    Ms. Navanethem Pillay, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has a hint for us.

    An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

    They are talking about adding a protocol to the International Convention for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The protocol would be enforceable international law, binding on the signatories. You probably overlooked some key words.

    • contemporary aspects of racism.

    What the Hell does that mean? It does not mean hating people because of their skin color, physiognomy or supposed inferior culture.

    The following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference [Emphasis added.]

    4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;

    Islamophobia implies irrational fear and loathing. Considering Islam’s historical record of 270*106 innocent victims, there is nothing irrational about fearing or loathing Islam.

    Islam is a war cult, not a race. It was contrived by an Arab, but it has enslaved people of several races, and due to their large population base and high rate of reproduction, Asian Muslims now outnumber Arab Muslims.

    The next post in this series will examine the suggestions submitted to the committee by The Islamic Republic of Iran.

    Inter Religious Idiocy

    JTA (Article by Eric Fingerhut July 23, 2009)

    The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding sponsored a conference of Rabbis & Imams to promote ethnic understanding. At the end of the four days of meetings, including visits to New York City and Washington D.C. , a joint statement was issued. Selected excerpts are reproduced below. [Emphasis added.]

    • We should explore together the commonalities in our faiths and traditions. We affirm here that we respect the sanctity of each other’s houses of worship and will stand together in case of an assault on either a mosque or a synagogue. We also stand in solidarity with each other in affirming that both Islamophobia and anti-Semitism are wrong and unacceptable, and we will fight against them together. Bigotry against any Jew or any Muslim is an attack on all Muslims and all Jews. In addition we are united in support of human rights for all peoples.


    • We denounce all forms of violence in the name of any religion or ideology and will do everything we can to prevent the spread of extremism in the name of any faith—including our own.


    • We feel sorrow and pain over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the great suffering it has brought to both peoples involved in that conflict. We pray for a non-violent resolution of that conflict that will allow both Palestinians and Israelis to live with dignity in peace and security. We have resolved to work together to strengthen Muslim-Jewish ties in our own countries and around the world. We will not allow future eruptions of violence in the Middle East to derail our efforts to strengthen Jewish-Muslim ties in Europe and North America because we understand that good Muslim-Jewish relations are necessary for the health of our own communities and our societies.

    The condemnation of “Islamophobia” stands out as a token of idiocy or insincerity. Fear and loathing of Islam is not irrational, since 270*106 innocent people have been slaughtered by Islam in the last 1400 years. Bigotry against Jews is founded in the Qur’an, including 1:7, 2:76, 3:64-65, 4:47, 9:30 & 98:6.

    Denunciation of “all forms of violence in the name of any religion” stands out as a clear case of al-taqeyya. Jihad against Jews is mandated by Surah At-Taubah 29. Renouncing Jihad is an act of Apostasy punishable by death under Shari’ah. Refer to Reliance of the Traveller, O8.7-7.

    Considering the Qur’anic mandate to make war upon Jews and the hadith which prescribes the final genocide as a prerequisite for Judgment Day, the prayer for non-violent resolution of the attempted reconquest of Israel rings hollow.

    Durban II Sham Revision: the Details

    Eye on the UN has published the Durban II revision of 03/17/09. Having read that document, I find that my earlier criticism remains valid.
    A/CONF.211/PC/WG.2/CRP.2
    [Font color & links added; background color in original, signifying text which has been voted on and approved.]

    I find the following listed members of the enumerated list to be unacceptable for the reasons included in this list.

    • 1, 2 : The DDPA is unacceptable due to its demonization of Israel and demand for Islamic blasphemy laws.
    • 3, 4, 9, 10, 16: “racism” & “related intolerance” are code words for “Islamophobia” which is a code word for saying “or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam” [ O11.10-5]
    • 8, 65, 100: thinly veiled attacks upon our attempts at promoting homeland security against Islamic terrorism.
    • 11, 66, 67: “any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law; these prohibitions are consistent with freedom of opinion and expression: Those are code phrases for criminalizing publications such as Fitna and delegitimizing the first amendment! Refer to which details Secy. Genl. Ban Ki-moon’s exemplary condemnation of that video.
    • 17: “need to increase appropriate preventive measures to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination” : a veiled demand for legislation criminalizing criticism of Islam.
    • 25: “competent, independent and impartial judiciary to determine in a fair and public procedure whether acts of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance are prohibited by international human rights law”: a veiled reference to court shopping for biased jurists who will jail us for uttering & publishing the truth about Islam.
    • E: “enhancement of the United Nations and other international mechanisms in combating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”: a veiled reference to exploitation of international conventions to criminalize criticism of Islam.
    • 26: “call upon States to diligently apply all commitments resulting from international and regional conferences in which they participated, and to formulate national policies and action plans to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance;”: a veiled demand for legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam.
    • 30: includes by reference Ad hoc Committee on the Elaboration of International Complementary Standards , which demands legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam.
    • 50, 51, 53, 54: ” comprehensive and universal approach to preventing, combating and eradicating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”: a veiled demand for legislation criminalizing criticism of Islam.
    • 55: “positive role that the exercise of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, as well as the full respect for the freedom to seek, receive and impart information can play in combating racism…”:Orwellian inversion of language,
    • 56: “the right to freedom of opinion and expression constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic, pluralistic society, since it ensures access to a multitude of ideas and views;”: another egregious inversion of language!
    • 97: “to declare illegal and to prohibit by law all organizations based on ideas or theories of superiority of one race or group of persons of one colour or ethnic origin, or which attempt to justify or promote national, racial and religious hatred”: a thinly veiled attack on Flemish & Dutch Freedom Parties which object to Islamification of Europe.
    • 119: “Commends media organizations that have elaborated voluntary ethical codes of conduct aimed at, inter alia, meeting the goals defined in paragraph 144 of the Durban Programme of Action”: a clear reference to self-censorship; the media which did not re-publish the Danish cartoons.
    • 130: shameless promotion of blasphemy laws.
    • 133: continued co-operation with the O.I.C in demanding imposition of blasphemy laws.

    Samples:

    Review of progress and assessment of implementation of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action by all stakeholders at the national, regional and international levels, including the assessment of contemporary manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

    A. Sources, causes, forms, and contemporary manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance

    1. Reaffirms the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action (DDPA) as it was adopted at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance (WCAR) in 2001; [adopted ad ref. ISWG]

    1. Recognizes with deep concern the negative stereotyping of religions and the global rise in the number of incidents of racial or religious intolerance and violence, including Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, Christianophobia and anti-Arabism;
    2. Reaffirms that any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law, as well as the dissemination of ideas based on racial superiority and hatred and acts of violence and incitement to such acts, and that these prohibitions are consistent with freedom of opinion and expression;
      1. Recognizes that prevention, combating and eradication of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance are of crucial importance and key elements for the promotion of cohesion and peaceful resolution of community tensions; [adopted ad ref. informals]
      2. Stresses the need to increase appropriate preventive measures to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination, and emphasizes the important role Governments, international and regional organizations, national human rights institutions, the media, non-governmental organizations and civil society can play in developing such measures and in building confidence; [adopted ad ref. informals, revised by Chair]
      1. Stresses the need for a comprehensive and universal approach to preventing, combating and eradicating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance in all parts of the world; [adopted ad ref. ISWG]
      2. Stresses the need for advocating and mobilizing the political will of relevant actors at all levels to eliminate racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance; [adopted ad ref. ISWG, revised by Chair]
      3. Calls on States to undertake effective media campaigns to enhance the struggle against all manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, inter alia, by disseminating and giving adequate visibility to the DDPA and its follow-up mechanisms; [adopted ad ref. ISWG, revised by Chair]
      4. Calls on States to take effective, tangible and comprehensive measures to prevent, combat and eradicate all forms and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance as a matter of priority;
      5. Calls on States to combat impunity for acts of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, to secure expeditious access to justice, and to provide fair and adequate redress for victims;

      I call upon President Barack Hussein Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the United States Senate and the European Union to withdraw from, Boycott, discountenance and condemn the Durban II Conference. There is no ground for acceptance of any of the O.I.C.’s contumacious demands no matter how they are veiled or concealed by indirect references and Orwellian inversions of our language.


      Durban II Sham Revision

      Anne Bayefsky reports in Forbes: “Obama Should Denounce Durban II “.

      She reports that a revised draft of the Durban II resolution drops certain offensive language, but commences with a reaffirmation of the DDPA of ’01.
      Inclusion of that reaffirmation brands the revision as an unacceptable sham. While she gives us some paraphrases and brief quotes, no link to the revision is provided in her report or any of the available news reports of the revision.

      In the absence of authoritative text, I reject the revised draft on the basis of what it affirms. Bear in mind while reading the following quotes from the DDPA,, that wherever “racism” is printed, you must read “Islamophobia”. The following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference [Emphasis added.]

      4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;


      DDPA
      pg 12

      59. We recognize with deep concern religious intolerance against certain religious
      communities
      , as well as the emergence of hostile acts and violence against such communities
      because of their religious beliefs and their racial or ethnic origin in various parts of the world
      which in particular limit their right to freely practise their belief;

      60. We also recognize with deep concern the existence in various parts of the world
      of religious intolerance against religious communities and their members, in particular limitation
      of their right to practise their beliefs freely, as well as the emergence of increased negative
      stereotyping
      , hostile acts and violence against such communities because of their religious
      beliefs and their ethnic or so-called racial origin;

      61. We recognize with deep concern the increase in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia
      in various parts of the world, as well as the emergence of racial and violent movements based on
      racism and discriminatory ideas against Jewish, Muslim
      and Arab communities;

      62. We are conscious that humanity’s history is replete with terrible wrongs inflicted
      through lack of respect for the equality of human beings and note with alarm the increase of such
      practices in various parts of the world, and we urge people, particularly in conflict situations, to
      desist from racist incitement, derogatory language and negative stereotyping;

      pg. 15

      79. We firmly believe that the obstacles to overcoming racial discrimination and
      achieving racial equality mainly lie in the lack of political will, weak legislation and lack of
      implementation strategies and concrete action by States, as well as the prevalence of racist
      attitudes
      and negative stereotyping;

      80. We firmly believe that education, development and the faithful implementation of
      all international human rights norms and obligations, including enactment of laws and political,
      social and economic policies
      , are crucial to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and
      related intolerance;

      81. We recognize that democracy, transparent, responsible, accountable and
      participatory governance responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people, and respect for
      human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law are essential for the effective prevention
      and elimination of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. We
      reaffirm that any form of impunity for crimes motivated by racist and xenophobic attitudes plays
      a role in weakening the rule of law and democracy and tends to encourage the recurrence of such
      acts;

      85. We condemn political platforms and organizations based on racism, xenophobia
      or doctrines of racial superiority and related discrimination, as well as legislation and practices
      based on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, as incompatible with
      democracy and transparent and accountable governance. We reaffirm that racism, racial
      discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance condoned by governmental policies violate
      human rights and may endanger friendly relations among peoples, cooperation among nations
      and international peace and security;

      86. We recall that the dissemination of all ideas based upon racial superiority or
      hatred shall be declared an offence punishable by law
      with due regard to the principles embodied
      in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the rights expressly set forth in article 5 of the
      International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination;

      pg. 48

      150. Calls upon States, in opposing all forms of racism, to recognize the need to
      counter anti-Semitism, anti-Arabism and Islamophobia world-wide, and urges all States to take
      effective measures to prevent the emergence of movements based on racism and discriminatory
      ideas concerning these communities;

      Those expressions are absolutely unacceptable to lovers of liberty; they should never have been uttered, published & promulgated and must not be affirmed because they constitute a thinly veiled demand for the global imposition of Islam’s blasphemy law.

      Paragraph 150 calls for all states to criminalize Islamophobia through effective legislation. There is no such entity! Phobia implies irrational fear & loathing. Islam has earned fear & loathing; the former intentionally, as celebrated in 33:26 and 59:13. A war cult responsible for 270 million deaths over the last 1384 years is worthy of loating.

      Shari’ah is unacceptable, whether it is imposed by force, legislated directly or sneaked in through the back door. It plainly states that we may be executed for saying anything “impermissible” about Islam.

      Yes, indeed, President Barack Hussein Obama should denounce the sham revision of the Durban II draft. I doubt that he will, I expect him to accept the sham as an opportunity for “engagement”. I will be pleasantly surprised if he does permanently denounce it.

      Durban II: Revised; Reject it!

      From Eye on the UN

      Revised version of the technically reviewed text (A/CONF.211/PC/WG.2/CRP.2) submitted by the Chairperson-Rapporteur of the intersessional open-ended working group to continue and finalize the process of negotiations on and drafting of the outcome document (1/28/2009)

      Reflecting the status of negotiations in the working group as at 6.00 pm, Friday, 23 January 2009.

      Always bear in mind, while reading Durban II & related documents, their manipulation & degradation of our language.
      The following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference [Emphasis added.]

      4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;

      Our language has been molested!!! anti-Semitism, Christianophobia & Islamophobia = racism ! Christianity & Islam are not races, they each include people of varying racial and geographic backgrounds. Hating a man on the basis of his skin color is irrational. Skin color is not a valid predictor of behavior and it is a genetic trait not under the control of the individual. A believing, practicing Christian, who follows the Golden Rule, is a threat to no one; there is no reason to hate him. A believing, practicing Muslim, is obligated to engage in war against pagans, Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians; our blood and property are not sacred to him, its open season! Fear of Islam is not irrational, it is intended,[3:151] [59:2] and is valid, based upon Islam’s history of violent expansion.

      Whenever you read racism and / or related intolerance, substitute criticism of / resistance to Islam.

      Key to the Draft Document from the update email.
      Ed. Note: Square brackets mean not yet decided. Ad. ref. means ad referendum, or adopted pending agreement on the whole document. A cluster is a group of paragraphs. Para means paragraphs. DDPA is the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action adopted at the first Durban Conference in Durban, South Africa, September 8, 2001. Over the course of the week (January 19-23, 2009), the drafting committee considered only 40% of the document before them and agreed on approximately 20% of the provisions covered.

      A/CONF.211/PC/WG.2/CRP.2
      {Bold face & font color added for emphasis.}

      1. [Emphasizes] the need to [identify/address all forms and] [eradicate all] manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance [in all parts of the world] [as identified in the DDPA, including contemporary manifestations], especially in light of developments and challenges that have occurred since the adoption of the DDPA [with a view to prevent,] and to combat [and eradicate] those manifestations wherever they occur;

      The authors want the final document to emphasize the need to identify and eradicate all manifestations of criticism of and resistance to Islam.

      3. [Affirms that the [effective implementation of the DDPA can contribute to combating racist and xenophobic trends] [failure to fully implement the DDPA [has contributed to] [would result in] the intensification of worrying racist and xenophobic trends,] including the political instrumentalization and intellectual legitimization of racism as well as racist violence;]

      The authors are obviously striking out at the development of anti-Islamic political parties in Europe along with web sites that publish the fatal facts of Islamic doctrine & practice.

      4. Notes the continued existence of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, and inequality in all spheres of human life, and non compliance with specific obligations in the promotion and protection of equality at the national, regional and international levels and reaffirms the obligation of States to take action in this respect; [Adopted ad ref.]

      5. [Notes that other obstacles hampering progress in the collective struggle against racism and racial discrimination include [first and foremost the absence of political will, the denial of the existence of contemporary racist tendencies,] weak [national] legislation and policies, lack of effective strategies, [lack of political will,] lack of implementation of international legal framework and commitments, impunity on different grounds [ – including [[negative] abuse of] freedom of expression, [counter-terrorism, and national security] [stereotypical association of religion with terrorism and violence by the media and national security forces]– as well as an increase in extreme right wing xenophobic political platforms. Hence the need [arises] to deal with this menace in all its forms and manifestations with all available tools at our disposal];]

      6. Underlines that racial discrimination condoned by governmental and state agencies, policies and practices violates human rights and may endanger friendly relations between peoples, cooperation among nations, and international peace and security; [Adopted ad ref.]

      Paragraph 4 is an obvious veiled reference to legislation. That concept is reinforced in paragraph 5. Note this combination of expressions.

      • impunity on different grounds
      • [ – including [[negative] abuse of]
      • freedom of expression

      The authors are bitching bitterly about the protection afforded to me and my fellow bloggers by the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits legislation abridging freedom of political speech. We have an absolute Constitutional right to tell the truth about Islam; its damnable doctrines and practices. We are God blessed well determined to preserve, protect & defend that right, which alone guarantees the continuation of our liberty. They are demanding legislation which would violate the first amendment by denying our right to accurately describe Islam. Accurate description of the enemy in time of war is an absolute necessity. Disproving denial of the enemy’s doctrines and the intentions founded thereon is an unacceptable threat to the war effort, which stands alone between our liberties and Islamic theocratic tyranny.

      • [counter-terrorism, and national security]

      The authors are bitching bitterly about our civil & military efforts to protect ourselves against their evil intentions, schemes, plans & attacks with which they hope to injure our persons, destroy our property, ruin our economy and conquer our nation. To Hell with those fiends! Their fabulistic mopery is perfectly unacceptable. They arrogate to themselves the ‘divine’ ‘right and duty’ to attack & conquer us and simultaneously deny our right to defend against their attacks.

      • stereotypical association of religion with terrorism and violence by the media

      Snake Feces!!! The assertion is absolutely untrue, false on its face & malicious in its intent. By God, I have proof, derived from Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegeses & jurisprudence and I will submit it. I will extract the core expressions and provide links so that the reader can verify them and read the context. Terrorism & genocidal Jihad are intrinsic sacraments of Islam. Annual attacks against Kuffar are a basic requirement of Shari’ah (Islamic law).

      • aggressive conquest: [Insets are from Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, underlined phrases are linked.]
      • 8:39 fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ].
    1. 8:60 Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]
    2. 9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
    3. 9:123 Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you
    4. Bukhari1.8.387 “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us
    5. Bukhari4.53.386 Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”
    6. Muslim19.4294 If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them...
    7. Abut Dawud23.3455 When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

    9. O9.1 The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.
    10. O9.8 The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…

    12. O25.9 and if the area has a border adjacent to enemy lands, an eighth duty arises, namely to undertake jihad against enemies, dividing the spoils of battle among combatants, and setting aside fifth (def: o10.3) for deserving recipients.
    13. terrorism
      • 3:151 We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve
      • (I was given five things that no other Prophet before me was given. I was aided with fear the distance of one month, the earth was made a Masjid and clean place for me, I was allowed war booty, I was given the Intercession, and Prophets used to be sent to their people, but I was sent to all mankind particularly.)

    14. 8:12 I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.
    15. 33:26 Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
    16. 59:2 But Allah’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts,
    17. 59:13 Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah.
    18. Bukhari1.7.331 Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
    19. Bukhari4.52.220 I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),
    20. genocide
      • 8:67 It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land.
      • 47:4 So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm
      • Abu Dawud38.4390 I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.

      Allah’s word: “fight them”, “fight those who”, “we shall cast terror”, “I will cast terror”, “he cast terror” and Moe’s word: “made me victorious by awe”, “made victorious with terror” clearly prove the assertion of stereotypical association to be malicious malarkey of the worst sort. This proof is confirmed both by exegeses and by Shari’ah. The Order to fight, command to fight, the Caliph makes war; what could possibly be more clear? Islam is evil by design, mercenary & martial; terrorist & genocidal; created for Moe’s emolument & empowerment. Muslims and their allies seek to criminalize the revelation of these fatal facts.

      • racial discrimination condoned by governmental and state agencies, policies and practices
      • may endanger friendly relations between peoples, cooperation among nations, and international peace and security

      Paragraph 6 is a pretext for a threat of war. That is absolutely unacceptable.

      7. Confirms that [recognition of and full] respect for cultural diversity [and multiculturalism] [is an important tool to combat racial discrimination] [contributes to combating racial discrimination] [Stresses that the respect for cultural diversity is a fundamental principle to combat racial discrimination.] [while bearing in mind the significance of national and regional particularities, as well as social, cultural and religious backgrounds, it is reiterated that they may not be invoked to disregard [internationally accepted] [international human rights law] [human rights and fundamental freedoms] [while reiterating that cultural particularities cannot be invoked to [derogate] [disregard] [from] international human rights law];

      8. [Alarmed at the intellectual and political [resistance] [opposition] to [cultural diversity,] multiculturalism, which is one of the root-causes of the resurgence of racist and xenophobic violence, reiterates that rejection of diversity has led to the negation of the very humanity of the immigrant, foreigner and other racial and religious minorities;]

      ALT: Reiterates that the rejection of diversity is one of the root causes of the resurgence of racist and xenophobic violence;

      In paragraphs 7 & 8, we we have a prime example of projection. Islam is supremacist & intolerant. “then their blood and property will be sacred to us” from Bukhari 1.8.387 (quoted above) shows us who denies the humanity of “religious minorities’.

      15. [Deplores the numerous occurrences of [armed] [internal] [and international] conflicts and inter-ethnic and intra-religious or communal violence, including those that appear to be based on tribal lines, which have lead to casualties and killings, torture, massive displacement, rape and destruction of property and infrastructures, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide;]

      16. Emphasizes that the multiple factors of a situation that might lead to genocide, as defined in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, include the resurgence of systematic discrimination, the prevalence of expressions of hate speech targeting persons belonging to national, ethnic, racial or religious groups,requests States to respect and implement the responsibility to protect in conformity with paragraphs 138 and 139 of the World Summit Outcome [especially in the context of serious and systematic violation of human rights] [especially if they are uttered in the context of an actual or potential outbreak of violence, and serious and systematic violation of human rights] [and ]; [proposal to move second part to section 5]

      Paragraph 15 is supreme hypocrisy. Currently ongoing genocide, such as that in Darfur, arises from Allah’s word & Moe’s example. It is perpetrated by Muslims against those they consider Kuffar or hypocrites. Paragraph 16 carries hypocrisy to a new level of accomplishment.

      • prevalence of expressions of hate speech targeting persons belonging to national, ethnic, racial or religious groups,

      Muslims need not go far to find examples of hate speech, it is as close as the nearest Mosque, where they express their hatred of Jews & Christians five times per day while reciting Surah Al-Fatihah.

      • 1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).
      • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
      • 9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!
      • 9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

      (Racial profiling, counter-terrorism)
      22. [Draws attention to the impact of] [Strongly deplores the [overt and covert] discriminatory] counter-terrorism measures [on] [that have led to] the rise of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance [including the practice of racial, ethnic, national and religious profiling;]

      NEW PARA: Also condemns all acts of ethnic, racial or religious profiling and segregation in any society, wherever it may occur, and its concomitant negative impact on the human rights of affected segments of population [and urges States to take resolute action against those responsible both in the public and private sectors]; [proposal to move to section 5].

      NEW PARA: Reaffirms that counter-terrorism strategies should not undermine the protection of human rights and the fight against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance;

      Both attacks on the World Trade Center, the attack on the Pentagon, the attack on the Madrid rail system and the London subway and bus systems were perpetrated by young Muslim males, not elderly nuns. Terrorism is mainly perpetrated by Muslims. Common sense dictates putting Muslims under close scrutiny. There is one reasonable solution: sent the Muslims home, where they won’t be profiled nor suffer discrimination. And keep them out of our countries so we won’t suffer terrorism. Let them walk or swim instead of flying & sailing. That would reduce the lines at airports considerably and restore security too.

      (Freedom of religion, incitement to religious intolerance, hatred, or violence, defamation of religion, freedom of expression)


      23. Reaffirms the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief and expresses concern over intolerance[s] and discrimination [practiced, misusing religions or belief] [on the grounds] [and] [in the name] of religion or belief;

      Except, of course Dhimmitude & Jizya, imposed upon conquered Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians. Oh, you did not know about it? Read the Pact of Umar.


      24. Recognizes with deep concern the global rise in the number of incidents of intolerance and violence against members of religious minorities in various parts of the world [in particular] motivated by [different forms of religious intolerance] [Islamophobia, anti-Arabism, anti-Semitism and Christianophobia];

      Such as discrimination and pogroms against Christians in Egypt? Are you concerned about their rights & welfare? How about Christians being persecuted by Muslims in Bethlehem?

      ALT: Recognizes with deep concern the global rise in the number of incidents of intolerance and violence against members of religious minorities in various parts of the world;

      25. Condemns any advocacy of racial or religious hatred which constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, and recognizes that only a competent, independent and impartial tribunal established by law may determine, case by case, in a fair and public hearing, whether the facts presented qualify as incitement to racial or religious hatred [prohibited by law];

      Why don’t you come right out and openly condemn the Qur’an, which declares war on Pagans, Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians? I previously showed you the ayat declaring war and one hadith confirming them. Why don’t you do something about that?

      ALT: Condemns any advocacy of racial or religious hatred which constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, and [should be prohibited by law;]

      The Qur’an inculcates hatred of Jews, Christians & Pagans. Why don’t you condemn it? Why don’t you specifically & explicitly condemn 8:39, 9:29 & 9:123? Why don’t you condemn the ahadith which confirm those imperatives to conquest?

      26. [[Notes with concern] [Seriously concerned at the] instances of defamation of religions, which manifests itself in [projecting negative, insulting and derogatory images of religions and religious personalities,] generalized and stereotypical association of religions, in particular Islam, with violence and terrorism, thus impacting negatively on the rights of individuals belonging to these religions, including Muslim minorities, and exposing them to hatred and discrimination. Such situations are further aggravated by the imposition of restrictions on the profession of religions, including [the surveillance of places of worship and restrictions on their construction] [the construction of places of worship and their surveillance];]

      Paragraph 26 is redundant; I previously proved that the assertion of stereotypical association of Islam with violence & terrorism is malicious malarkey.

      28. Reaffirms a holistic approach to human rights guaranteeing the indivisibility of all human rights, and stresses that [fundamental freedoms of expression and association should continue to contribute and promote the positive and desirable phenomenon of multiculturalism, respect for cultural diversity and tolerance among all religions, peoples and societies.] [the fight against racial and religious hatred should not serve as a pretext to legitimize impermissible limitations to freedom of expression] [as the right to freedom of expression constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic society as it ensures individual self-fulfillment and a pluralistic, tolerant society with access to multitudes of ideas and philosophies];

      ALT/NEW PARA: Reiterates that freedom of religion or belief, freedom of opinion and expression and non-discrimination are interdependent and stresses the need to strengthen the process of effectively adjudicating cases associated with incitement to national racial and religious hatred in accordance with the permissible limitations under article 20 of the ICCPR and analogous instruments;

      NEW PARA: Recognizes the importance of the positive role that can be played by the media in this context in particular through a responsible media that abstains from diffusing hate or defamatory information and that engages to fight against such practices;

      Islam will not tolerate criticism. Here is an example: the Secretary General condemning Fitna

      Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about Fitna:

      “There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not at stake here.”

      Fitna displays verses from the Qur’an with rabble rousing Imams, Islamic mob scenes and the aftermath of terrorism. It shows cause & effect. That is neither hate speech nor incitement; it is objective factual reality. Saying anything negative about Allah, his Messenger or their canon of scripture is a capital offense.

      • O8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam
      • -4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);
      • -5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

      • -6- to be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

      • -7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;

      • -16- to revile the religion of Islam;
      • -19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

      • -20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )

      • O8.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
      • O8.2 In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

      The pact of Dhimmitude is violated if a Dhimmi says anything negative about Islam.

      • O11.10 or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam

      143. [Calls on CERD and the Human Rights Committee to elaborate model legislation on [the necessity of upholding respect for human rights and reputation, public morals, as well as] incitement to racial and religious hatred and freedom of expression;]

      We have already seen their determination to silence Islam’s critics. They are demanding criminalization of expression critical of Islam.

      Action at the national level (Racist theories, ideologies, doctrines, incitement to racial hatred, nationalist ideologies, national preference theories)

      NEW PARA: Calls on States [that while identifying] [to identify] [different forms and manifestations of] [new emerging forms and manifestations of] racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance] [and] take effective, tangible and comprehensive measures to prevent, combat and eradicate them as a matter of priority;

      NEW PARA: Calls on States to prohibit by law and adopt necessary policy measures to combat [in accordance with norms of international law] the dissemination of all ideas based on racial superiority or hatred and incitement to hatred; (Racist crimes, hate crimes, urban violence)

      152. Calls on States to combat impunity for acts of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, [and to grant appropriate redress for victims] [by securing access to justice, by granting [and maximizing] [maximum] [fair] [just and adequate] [appropriate] redress for victims];

      Remember that criticism of Islam is equated with racism in their Orwellian new speak. These provisions effectively demand the passage and enforcement of legislation outlawing and penalizing criticism of Islam in clear and open violation of the first amendment.

      [ALT: Calls on States to combat impunity for acts of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobiaand related intolerance and provide [by providing] [just and adequate] [maximum] [fair] redress for victims, including through securing expeditious access to justice;]

      153. Urges States, as a matter of priority, to [prohibit] [and criminalize] [any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence in accordance with [all] pertinent international instruments] [and punish violent, racist and xenophobic activities of neo-Nazi groups in accordance with pertinent international instruments]; ALT: Urges States, as a matter of priority, to prohibit [and criminalize] any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence in accordance with all pertinent international instruments and punish violent, racist and xenophobic activities [of neo-Nazi groups] accordingly;

      154. Invites Governments and their law enforcement agencies to collect reliable information on hate crimes in order to strengthen their efforts to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance; [Adopted ad ref.]

      According to those arrogant, self-righteous AssWholes, this blog post is a criminal offense. Re-examine The Secretary General’s egregious remark.

      Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about Fitna:

      “There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not at stake here.”

      Watch the video again, through the link I provided. Is that hate speech? Does Geert Wilders incite anyone to violence? Were the ayat he quoted hate speech? Did those ayat incite violence? Did the Imams ranting & raving in the video utter hate speech and incite violence? Did Ban Ki-moon condemn the wrong person, letting the real malfactor go condoned, not condemned?

      To Islam and its United Nations Dhimmis, pointing out Islam’s hate & violence is hate speech and inciting violence. That is Orwellian moral inversion at its finest!

      (Freedom of religion, incitement to religious intolerance, hatred, or violence, defamation of religion, freedom of expression)

      159. Urges States to take effective measures to address contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, and to take firm action against negative stereotyping of religions and defamation of religious personalities, holy books, scriptures and symbols;

      160. Calls on States to develop, and where appropriate to incorporate, permissible limitations on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression into national legislation;

      161. Reminds States to promote and protect the exercise of the rights set out in the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief, proclaimed by the General Assembly in its resolution 36/55 of 25 November 1981, in order to obviate religious discrimination which, when combined with certain other forms of discrimination, constitutes a form of multiple discrimination;

      162. Calls on States to ensure that lawmakers discharge their responsibilities in conformity with paragraph 2 of article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and article 4 of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, taking into account General Comment 15 of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination;

      These demands for legislation criminalizing revelation of the truth about Islam from its own canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence is absolutely unacceptable! I will not accept it. I curse and condemn it and its authors.

      I disrespectfully demand:

      1. That Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly reject the Durban II draft document as revised and forswear U.S. participation in the conference.
      2. That the Congress pass and President Obama execute legislation withholding payment of such part of our U.N. assessment as would be used to finance the Durban II conference.
      3. That the Congress pass and President Obama execute articles of withdrawal from the U.N. and legislation expelling that organization and its appendages from our soil.

      I urge and exhort all U.S. citizens who read this blog post to join me in those disrespectful demands. Please sign and promote the following related petitions:
      Quit the U.N.!
      Outlaw Islam!

      Durban II: Egregious Arrogance Repackaged

      Now comes word [a special report] from Eye on the UN that the Durban II Draft has been revised.
      Eye on the UN has a special page set aside for Durban II where you can find links to vital documents related to this issue. The revision is in the form of a 38 page, 192KB pdf document. The release notes follow.

      Criteria used for technical review:

      • The structure of the current document follows PC.2/8;
      • All themes and messages of the compilation have been preserved;
      • Duplicate provisions were deleted;
      • Similar paragraphs were merged;
      • Provisions identical to the DDPA were removed;
      • Provisions similar to the DDPA and thus weakening it were removed;
      • Region-specific language was made general or deleted;
      • Paragraphs from the compilation marked with an * for which no language has been submitted were condensed or deleted;
      • Paragraphs were located in accordance with the objectives of the respective sections;
      • The annex to section 4 containing examples of best practices is suggested to be removed;
      • Grammatical corrections were made as well as soft editing;
      • Subheadings in italics were temporarily introduced to facilitate future work.

      But did they make the draft report acceptable to lovers of truth, justice, life & liberty? Hell no! If you expected substantive improvement, you are severely deluded and probably require institutionalization.

      Eye On the UN lists four areas of concern.

      1. Demonizing Israel
      2. Thwarting the war to end terrorism
      3. Limiting freedom of expression
      4. Creating the Islamic victim

      I do not recall seeing mention of one particular issue which angers me: corrupting our language by conflating objections to Jihad with racism.

      4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;

      That festering lump of feces comes from: Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference.

      Opposition to Islam is not phobic! There is absolutely nothing irrational about it. Islam’s demonic mandate to conquer and subjugate the entire world, expressed in two ayat containing explicit imperatives to make war [8:39, 9:29] confirmed by hadith [Bukhari 1.8.387] and reflected in Islam’s Sharia law [Reliance of the Traveller Book O9.8, 9.9] renders Islam absolutely intolerable. Nor is Islam a race; it victimizes people of several races, so that Allah’s slaves include people of Black, Caucasian and Asian heritage.

      Hence forth you know that whenever you read ‘racism’ or ‘related intolerance’ in a UN resolution, you can substitute rejection of Islam. Durban II word count:

      • racism: 108
      • related intolerance: 67
      • terrorism: 9
      • Islamophobia: 2
      • profiling: 7
      • defamation: 7
      • defamation of religion: 5
      • defamation of religions: 3

      On page 5 of the pdf, we find this maggot encrusted lump:

      Notes with concern instances of defamation of religions, which manifests itself in generalized and stereotypical association of religions, in particular Islam, with violence and terrorism, thus impacting negatively on the rights of individuals belonging to these religions, including Muslim minorities, and exposing them to hatred and discrimination. Such situations are further aggravated by the imposition of restrictions on the profession of religions, including restrictions on the construction of places of worship and their surveillance; (merger paras 2, 42, 43, 45, 46 section 1)

      • stereotypical association of religions, in particular Islam, with violence and terrorism

      I already showed you why Islam is associated with violence; why is Islam associated with terrorism?

      • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve…
      • 8:12.I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.
      • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
      • 8:60.[Abdullah Yusuf Ali] Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know.
      • 33:26.And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
      • 59:2. But Allah’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
      • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allah).
      • Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
      • Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220: I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),

      Got a clue yet? If not, you must be a LibTard, and never will have a clue until the Mujahideen are sawing your head off with a dull knife. Moe was ordered to fight, made victorious by frightening & terrifying his victims and made wealthy by conquests, yet we are sternly advised that Islam is stereotypically associated with violence and terrorism. Yeah, right. That feces spewed from the mouth of Hemayet Uddin, inter alia.

      • Such situations are further aggravated by the imposition of restrictions on the profession of religions, including restrictions on the construction of places of worship and their surveillance;

      How many churches are there in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia? There are many Christians imported as service workers, but no churches, why? What happens when Copts wish to build a new church or repair an old one? Why?

      • O11.5-7 and are forbidden to build new churches

      A hint for the clueless: Is there some reason why the profession & practice of Islam should not be restricted? Should Mosques not be surveilled after weapons and CBW related materials and equipment were found in a British Mosque?

      The terminally ignorant do not comprehend the fact that Jihad: aggressive warfare to propagate Islam and seize real & personal property, genocide: making a great slaughter and terrorism: casting terror are intrinsic sacraments of Islam. You can not properly practice Islam without practicing them.

      Jihad is not an anachronism; it must be continued until all resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped. It must be continued until all “people of the book” are subjugated & extorted. Jihad will be practiced continuously from the beginning of Moe’s prophetic career in 610 to the last day. Abandoning Jihad for more productive pursuits will cause Muslims to be cursed until they return to their “original religion”.

      Acknowledges that a most disturbing phenomenon is the intellectual and ideological validation of Islamophobia. When it is expressed against migrants it takes the form of religious-ethnic or religious-racial tones, when it is expressed in the form of defamation of religions, it takes cover behind the freedom of expression and when it is expressed in the form of profiling, it hides behind the war against terrorism. Believes that association of terrorism and violence with Islam or any other religion, including through publication of offensive caricatures and making of hate documentaries, would purposely complicate our common endeavours to address several contemporary issues, including the fight against terrorism and the occupation of foreign territories and peoples; (para 45 section 1)

      They are bitching about the Danish cartoons, FITNA and blog posts such as this. They want to criminalize exposing Moe as the terrorist he was.

      Urges States to take effective measures to address contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, and to take firm action against negative stereotyping of religions and defamation of religious personalities, holy books, scriptures and symbols; (para 100 section 5)

      Calls on States to develop, and where appropriate to incorporate, permissible limitations on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression into national legislation; (para 96 c) section 5)

      Would it have been proper, in 1935, to criminalize criticism of Hitler and his Nazi Party? How can we debate strategy & tactics in the current war without identifying and accurately describing the enemy and its doctrines? The UN has been co-oped by the enemy and is attempting to disarm us so that we will be led, dumb like sheep, to the slaughter.

      Calls upon States to develop, in cooperation with multilateral organizations, Internet service providers, private sector stakeholders and civil society, and taking into account the principles of multilateralism, democracy and transparency, a coordinated global strategy to formulate a voluntary code of ethical conduct with a view to prohibiting the proliferation of ideas of superiority and the justification of racial or religious hatred and discrimination in any form, and promoting mutual respect and tolerance among all peoples; (merger paras 107, 110 section 5)

      • prohibiting the proliferation of ideas of superiority and the justification of racial or religious hatred and discrimination in any form

      How are you going to outlaw the Qur’an? It has been published in many languages, copies exist in Mosques, Madrassahs, private homes, libraries and book stores all over the world. Anyone who does not perceive the perverse absurdity of that call should remove himself from the gene pool for the benefit of society.

      The bottom line: The Durban II Draft is an intolerable affront to logic, morality, truth, justice and liberty. It must be rejected. The American people must rise up as one disrespectfully demanding abstention from the Durban II meetings and withdrawal from the UN. We must rise up as one to condemn & curse those who condescendingly demand that we submit and surrender to Islam. Their arrogance can not be accepted. We must extend to them the impudent digit and the
      thumb of death.

      In this blog post, I have presented evidence from Islam’s own canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence. The source documents are easily accessible on the web. The links to hadith will lead you to the USC MSA’s Compendium of Islamic Texts where you can access the Qur’an in three parallel translations and the four major hadith collections. At scribid.com you can read a scanned image of Reliance of the Traveller, using a search engine to find specific text or the Book & Chapter designators.

      Those ignorant, deluded fools who believe that I quote the Qur’an out of context, perverting, distorting or mis-translating it should turn to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir which will expose their idiotic assumptions. http://www.qtafsir.com has a search engine with which you can look up any verse included in the tafsir. Try these topics, which confirm the validity of what I have posted here.

      I dissected the previous draft, exposing the lies, deceit & hypocrisy therein contained in the posts listed below.

      Moe’s Legacy of Violence

      OIC Statement by Ambassador Masood Khan on “Incitement to Racial and Religious Hatred and the Promotion of Tolerance” at The Human Rights Council, Geneva, 21 September 2006

      First the immediate context. Pope Benedict XVI’s recent speech in Regensburg University has led to protests in the Muslim world. His quotation from the 14th century Byzantine Emperor, Manuel II Paleologos, has deeply hurt the sensibilities of the Muslim all over the world. Since then we are reassured that the Pope has expressed regrets, distanced himself from the quotation from the emperor and given an invitation for frank dialogue, with mutual respect.

      Unfortunately, that is not the end of the story because the Pope’s remarks have ignited a controversy about the true message of the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and Islam. The Pope’s qualified and carefully worded apology, if it can be called one, or the Vatican’s clarification gives the impression that the Muslims have not fully understood the intent and reasoning behind the papal lecture. The irony is that they have.

      The Emperor’s quotation is based on three elements: allegation against the Prophet’s legacy; a statement that Islam was spread by the sword; and a derivation that there is a nexus between violence and Islam and violence in Jihad.

      The Ambassador takes up the three elements individually.

      1. Moe’s legacy.

      One, the Prophet’s legacy is one of peace and amity; not of strife or war. He was a peace-maker and a peace-builder.

      Is that statement objectively true? Leaving the Qur’an aside for the moment as Allah’s legacy, not Moe’s, lets consider the Hadith which are Islam’s oral tradition of Moe’s legacy.

      • Sahih Bukhari
    21. Sahih Muslim
    22. Abu Dawud
    23. Malik’s Muwatta
    24. Was Moe a man of peace?

      • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
        Narrated Anas bin Malik:
        Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
      • Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
        The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.
      • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:
        Narrated Abu Huraira:
        The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.
      • Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4294:
        It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraid through his father that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of Muhairs and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajirs. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muilims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai’ except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them...

      If you imagine that I have cherry picked selections to make Moe look bad, click the link to the Book of Jihad in Malik’s Muwatta and read the section heading. The saying quoted below reveals Moe’s true nature; for this reason it has been Bowdlerized from most of the on line collections.

      Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

      Those are not the sentiments of a man of peace; that is the attitude of a pirate, not a prophet.

      1. Islam was spread by the sword

      The footnotes to 2:190 the Hilali & Khan translation are informative.

      Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s word is made superior, (his word being La ilaha illallah which means none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and his Religion (Islam) is propagated. …

      [Note: the Qur’an Complex English translation is not being displayed. If you desire to verify the quote, you can download the pdf version from http://abdurrahman.org/qurantafseer/muhsinkhan.pdf. [29.5MB] Turn to Pg. 52 of the pdf and scroll down toward the bottom of the page. ]

      If Islam was not propagated militarily then explain the prominent place of conquests in this table of contents of Islamic history.

      1. and a derivation that there is a nexus between violence and Islam and violence in Jihad

      Hilali & Khan stretched matters a bit with their claim that Jihad is a pillar of Islam; it is not in the recognized list. Note their definition, in the foot note quoted above. Compare it to the definition found in Sharia.

      The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
      BOOK O: JUSTICE
      >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

      Chapter O-9.0: Jihad
      (O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.
      “We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.”
      The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b-7) is such Koranic verses as:
      1- “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);
      2- “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);
      3- “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);
      and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
      “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;
      and the hadith reported by Muslim,
      “To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.) [Emphasis & links added.]

      Now it is established, by Islamic law, that Jihad is warfare to establish the religion. What is the the connection between Islam and violence? To fully comprehend it, you should read the entire Qur’an. Three Surhas, 8, 9 & 48 are particularly significant, but violence runs throughout the book, in 164 verses.

      Jihad is mandatory, not optional.

      • 2:216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.

      The penalty for shirking is extreme: eternity in Hell fire.

      • 9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allah is Able to do all things.

      Jihad is the key to salvation.

      • 64:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.
      • 64:11. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
      • 64:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.
      • 64:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allah (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) to the believers.

      Is there any violence? Is fighting violence? Do killing & wounding involve violence?

      • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
      • 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost,

      Did any truth pass the lips of Ambassador Masood Khan when he spoke to the HRC? I doubt it, he was off to a very dishonest start.
