"Disdaining religion," eh? Such "insolence"! This is an increasingly strong challenge to a fundamental basis of a free society. If one is not free to write something critical of any belief-system or group, if any belief-system or group is held immune from such criticism, then freedom of speech does not actually exist. A free society means the freedom to reject, to criticize, even to ridicule. Without this freedom of speech and freedom of thought are hollow and meaningless.
"Muslim World League calls for UN interventions against disdaining religions," from the Kuwait News Agency, with thanks to Twostellas:
RIYADH, Jan 28 (KUNA) -- Muslim World League (MWL) called Saturday on the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to activate international laws against insolence of religions.
MWL Secretary General Dr Abdullah Al-Turki condemned, in a letter addressed to Annan, the discretion of Prophet Mohammed (PBU) by Danish and Norwegian newspapers, which published cartoon depicting the Prophet in a disrespectful way.
Al-Turki said in the letter that Muslims around the world felt very offended by the unethical campaign, noting that international laws prohibited scorning religions and other hatred-provoking practices.
He stressed that UN should intervene to stop media campaigns against Islam, which might ignite clashes between different cultures.
Moreover, he called on Annan to immediately and directly contact the Danish and Norwegian governments to demand them to ban media campaigns against Islam and to officially apologize for the Muslim nation.
Al-Turki also called on the international community to adopt a clear law criminalizing individuals and institutions that disrespect religions.
Man these people need to get a life and a sense of humor!
Does anyone have a link to the cartoon?
(Denny Crane: "I Don't Want To Socialize With A Pinko Liberal Democrat Commie. Say What You Like About Republicans. We Stick To Our Convictions. Even When We Know We're Dead Wrong.")
I can think of several countries to start with before Denmark and Norway.
Now that we know it bothers them so much we need ten thousand copycats to drive them over the edge.
Try taking a Bible into Saudi Arabia and see how you are treated.
Islam, the Religion of Perpetual Outrage.
so says Al'stuffus Hallot Ocrapen.
Remember that daring artist that created the PISS CHRIST? Bet he ain't got the guts to create the PISS KORAN.
"Al-Turki said in the letter that Muslims around the world felt very offended by the unethical campaign, noting that international laws prohibited scorning religions and other HATRED-PROVOKING PRACTICES."
I'm sure that he demanded that the UN take action against islam for their hatred-provoking practices.
Now if such a request came from Christians who are offended when Jesus Christ is made the butt of jokes, ridiculed, defamed, blasphemed (generally, the same treatment He got the first time He walked the Earth), the U.N. would dismiss the complaint as without merit and declare that "every world citizen has the right to express their views, even when those views are offensive to others."
Of course, Christians are highly unlikely to hijack an airliner and crash it into the U.N. headquarters in New York, or gawd forbid, into the "holy" sites at say, Mecca.
But now those Islamofascists? Oh Mr. Koffee Anus isn't about to run the risk of those jokers kidnapping him and sawing his head off ala Nick Berg. He'll respond "how high would you like me to jump?" and then he'll *leap* like a little toad on a hot summer highway.
"He stressed that UN should intervene to stop media campaigns against Islam, which might ignite clashes between different cultures."
Translated into muslim-speak: The UN should stop the media from telling the truth about islam so that people will believe that islam is peaceful while we are slitting their throats.
Make as much fun of islam as you can. Lets get them so pissed that they heat up WWIII into a hot war....give the United States the opportunity to wage total war, horrible and devistating. Lets get rid of islam once and for all...
There is absolutely no chance of "peace on Earth" until islam is gone.
Searching for humor in the Muslim World? FUGGEDDABOUTIT!
They have studied the democrats - comply or we will call you names .. and amazingly, people continue to comply.
The one thing that Islam cannot tolerate is laughter and ridicule. Make Islam the butt of jokes, make it the common perception that Muslims are (at best) hopeless losers or (at worst) psychotic murderers, and Islam will start to collapse
