Alongside a resolution adopted by the U.N. General Assembly this week calling for a moratorium on the death penalty, the world body passed a raft of other human rights-related motions. One of them, introduced by Islamic nations, focuses on combating the “defamation of religions.”……Introduced by Pakistan on behalf of the OIC, it passed on Tuesday by a 108-51 margin, with 25 abstentions. As with many of the other votes, the U.S. lined up with democracies in Europe, Asia and elsewhere against developing nations, including repressive regimes.Although the resolution refers to defamation of “religions,” Islam is the only religion named in the text, which also takes a swipe at counter-terrorism security measures.
It expresses alarm about “discrimination” and “laws that stigmatize groups of people belonging to certain religions and faiths under a variety of pretexts relating to security and illegal immigration.”
Muslim minorities are subjected to “ethnic and religious profiling … in the aftermath of the tragic events of 11 September 2001,” it says.
The resolution decries “the negative projection of Islam in the media” and voices “deep concern that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism.”
Muslims targeted? I should hope so. Considering that Islam is more like an fascist ideology than a religion, and the proponents have been responsible for thousands of deaths in the name of “Allah”. It damn sure wasn’t Catholics, Protestants, Baptists, Espiscopalians, or wacky snake-handling Pentacostals from Appalachia who killed 3000 people on this soil in a single day, stuck a knife in the chest of Theo Van Gogh, or threatened authors, journalists, and cartoonists with death over ‘religious insults’.
The United Nations was a platform for communist nations and their sympathizers for over 50 years. Now, they’ve switched to being a mouthpiece for Islamic zealots attempting to legitimize their religious-based terrorism.
The government’s response to this lunacy has been pretty weak. There’s a growing Islamic malignancy in this country abetted by the media and apathetic Americans.
If this keeps up, the U.S. Capitol will soon be replaced by a Minaret.
