Defamation of Religions Vote

Eye on the UN reports the results of the UNHRC vote on the “Revised Draft Resolution on Combating Defamation of Religions“. The resolution is a 357KB Microsoft Word document. Its purpose is to forward the OIC agenda of imposing Islam’s blasphemy laws upon the entire world.

Roy W. Brown, IHEU representative in Geneva, provides history and context to this issue in “The Slow Death of Freedom of expression” at Index of censorship.

Those UNHRC members listed in the first column failed to vote against the resolution which contains these and other egregious statements.

4. Expresses deep concern at the continued serious instances of deliberate stereotyping of religions, their adherents and sacred persons in the media, as well as programmes and agendas pursued by extremist organizations and groups aimed at creating and perpetuating stereotypes about certain religions, in particular when condoned by Governments;

5. Notes with deep concern the intensification of the overall campaign of defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general, including the ethnic and religious profiling of Muslim minorities in the aftermath of the tragic events of 11 September 2001;

6. Recognizes that, in the context of the fight against terrorism, defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general have become aggravating factors that contribute to the denial of fundamental rights and freedoms of members of target groups, as well as to their economic and social exclusion;

7. Expresses deep concern in this respect that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism and, in this regard, regrets the laws or administrative measures specifically designed to control and monitor Muslim minorities, thereby stigmatizing them and legitimizing the discrimination they experience;

13. Urges all States to provide, within their respective legal and constitutional systems, adequate protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general, and to take all possible measures to promote tolerance and respect for all religions and beliefs;

14. Underscores the need to combat defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general by strategizing and harmonizing actions at the local, national, regional and international levels through education and awareness‑building;

15. Calls upon all States to make the utmost effort, in accordance with their national legislation and in conformity with international human rights and humanitarian law, to ensure that religious places, sites, shrines and symbols are fully respected and protected, and to take additional measures in cases where they are vulnerable to desecration or destruction;

Since Council members are elected on a regional basis, its membership will always be dominated by Islamic nations and those sympathetic to them. It is therefore impossible for justice, reason or common sense to prevail in the UNHRC. There is no nothing to be gained by seeking membership in that body. I will therefore urge President Obama and my Senators to abandon plans to seek election to the UNHRC and urge them to reject it and its resolutions.We should take no part it its deliberations or its financing.

NGO Joint Statement on Defamation of Religions

UN Watch has posted a press release revealing the details of the Joint NGO Statement on Danger of U.N. “Defamation of Religions” Campaign and listing its 187 co-endorsers.

The joint statement urges nations to reject the “defamation of religions resolution”, the proposed protocol to ICERD and the Durban II conference. The list of signatories includes a few surprises.

  • Muslim Council of Canada
  • The International Quranic Center (IQC)
  • American Islamic Congress

As a lover of liberty, particularly freedom of expression, I visited http://congress.org/ and used their email form to send my personal endorsement of the joint statement and a link to the UN Watch press release to President Obama and my Senators.

The UN Will Save Hamas’ Ass.

2 Reports that have come to me. The first is from UN Watch concerning the truce they want to impose on Israel.

Take Action Now: Oppose U.N. Nod to Hamas Terror

As Israel struggles to defend its civilians from Hamas rocket attacks—10,000 since 2001, and more than 500 in the past few days alone—Arab and Islamic states have called an emergency “Special Session” of the U.N. Human Rights Council for Friday. Their proposed resolution condemns Israel alone, while covering up for Hamas’s double war crime: its deliberate targeting of Israeli civilians, and its use of Palestinian civilians as human shields. Take action now — urge E.U. leaders to vote to support democracies and oppose terrorism.

Just click here and send your message to the EU. This resolution will just impose the same failed idea that happened after the 2006 war. The one in which the UN actually helped Hizbollah rearm.

This next report comes from MEMRI. It is a short video showing the true face of Hamas and Islam taken before Operation Cast Lead. Please watch it, share it with others.

Featured are Hamas leader Khaled Mash’al, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya, Hamas MPs Mushir Al-Masri and Fathi Hamad, Hamas MP and cleric Yunis Al-Astal, Palestinian Legislative Council acting speaker Sheikh Ahmad Bahr, and Hamas clerics Wael Al-Zarad and Muhsen Abu ‘Ita.

Viewers will also witness Hamas military training for adults and children, anti-American speeches at rallies including burning of the American flag and calls of support for “The Afghan Mujahidin”, Hamas Al-Aqsa TV children’s shows, and more.

There are very many examples of these men saying the exact same thing. And many more going even further and calling for the death of every Jew in the world. It is the duty of Muslims to carry out that wish.

From the Koran and Hadiths

Sura 5:51 – O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Bukhari 52: 176 – The hour of judgment shall not happen until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Muslims shall kill the Jews to the point that the Jew shall hide behind a big rock or a tree and the rock or tree shall call on the Muslim saying: hey, O Muslim there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him, except the Gharqad tree which will not say, for it is the tree of Jews.

Bukhari 54:524 – The Prophet said, “A group of Israelites were lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and changed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.” I told this to Ka’b who asked me, “Did you hear it from the Prophet ?” I said, “Yes.” Ka’b asked me the same question several times.; I said to Ka’b. “Do I read the Torah? (i.e. I tell you this from the Prophet.)

Tabari 7:97 – The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”

Tabari 9:69 – “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

I could have placed hundreds of quotes from the Koran and Hadiths here, those were just a few. The ones every Muslim knowns by heart and is committed to carrying out.

The UN has become the center of Islamic anti-Semitism in the world. And the Western nations will just go along with whatever their Muslim masters say, for to do otherwise would stop the flow of oil to their lands. Or would it?

It is time for the leaders of the Free World to stand up to these barbarians and say NO!

CONSPIRACY THEORIST SHOULD LEAVE U.N. JOB

In San Francisco there are many Moonbats, but a few voices of reason do come forward now and then to speak the truth. This is one of them.

CONSPIRACY THEORIST SHOULD LEAVE U.N. JOB

By Joel Brinkley

Millions of Americans believe the Sept. 11 attacks were not the work of Muslim fundamentalists. They like to call the strikes “false flag” operations — a conspiracy planned and executed by the Bush administration. Why? Under this unusual theory, the attacks provided President Bush and his aides the pretext to launch international wars and to enact policies that “led to widespread denials of rights under the pretext of homeland security.”

So writes Richard Falk, a professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University — and also a special representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who is charged with investigating Israeli abuses against the Palestinians.

Anything believed by millions of Americans, according to (perhaps suspect) public opinion surveys, can hardly be called an underground movement. But I, for one, had never heard of this until a row broke out last month between Falk and U.N. monitors who try to defend Israel.

What does this have to do with Israel and the Palestinians? Nothing, really — except that the U.N. monitors who already view Falk with grave distrust are now throwing up his advocacy of the 9/11 conspiracy theory as further evidence that he is not qualified to serve as an important U.N. envoy. (The Islamic nations chose Falk for the position early this year in large part because he once compared Israel to Nazi Germany.)

Of course, Falk’s supporters on the council — Egypt, Pakistan and other members of the Islamic conference — are not bothered by any of this. That should be no surprise. If the Bush administration actually perpetrated the Sept. 11 attacks, then the world’s distrust of Islam would be largely unfounded.

It’s hard to reconcile the 9/11 skeptics’ story. But one common idea among them is that government operatives planted explosives throughout the two World Trade Center towers, and that those bombs caused the buildings to collapse.

After a cursory look at the books, articles and Web sites, (including 911truth.org) I was able to discern the advocates’ broad notion: The government knew that the 9/11 hijackers were on their way, and let them carry out the attack — even aided and abetted them.

Well, even if we could accept this theory of unadulterated evil intent, it’s patently clear that the government is not competent to pull off something this complex. In any case, last month an organization called UN Watch published an angry press release attacking Falk for publishing an article in a Scottish newspaper, entitled, “9/11, More Than Meets the Eye.” In it, Falk does not say flatly that the theories are correct — just that they warrant further investigation. Still, Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch, wrote: “The very credibility of the U.N. mission to preserve international peace is at stake.”

I talked with Neuer, and with Falk. In any conversation about Falk, Neuer’s fundamental concern is on a different plane. The Human Rights Council, he notes, has fired its special representatives for Cuba, Liberia, Uzbekistan — even Congo. But one state has a permanent monitor not subject to debate or renewal. That is Israel, and Falk holds that position. “He has a very serious mandate,” Neuer said. “People who question whether 9/11 happened are not serious people. No one in the United States or the West could be in positions of authority if they engaged in 9/11 conspiracy talk.”

Falk, of course, disagrees. He notes that his position is part-time — and unpaid. “I’ve been trying to balance different agendas and roles. I am an academic and a citizen. And I don’t think those roles reflect on my position as special rapporteur.”

Fair enough, but these 9/11 conspiracy theorists remind me of the people who used to think that Neil Armstrong didn’t really land on the moon 40 years ago; the entire exercise was actually carried out in a water tank. It’s a free country; you’re entitled to think whatever you like. But this is fringe stuff. Would we ever have appointed an advocate of the water-tank theory to a senior position in government? The Human Rights Council is already an embarrassment to the United Nations. Certainly reasonable people can criticize Israel, just as they can find fault with the Palestinians. But the council’s pathological obsession with Israel is its defining characteristic, and Falk is its embodiment.

I wouldn’t have cared that an academic wrote the foreword several years ago for a book that is the conspiracy advocates’ bible. But I do care that the man whose job now is to help the Islamic states pursue their vendetta against Israel also believes that the U.S. government is capable of such unspeakable evil. What does that tell you about his frame of mind for his United Nations job?

It seems that the idiots are running the asylum. 9/11 was caused by the US government to bring us into a war. Israel is the worst abuser of human rights (forget about the lack of rights for women, gays or non-Muslims in every Muslim nation.), up is down, and black is white. Doublespeak is the only speech that is excepted.

9/11 was executed by 19 Muslims. 15 of which were from Saudi Arabia. 7/7 and Madrid was executed by Muslims. Mumbai was executed by Muslims. Not the US government and not by aliens from outer space either.

But to the UN it all these were done by the Jews. For the UN is controlled by Muslims and whatever they say, is the new truth.

The second day of infamy!

We will never forget!
