A free speech killer UN warns: Don't defame religions, especially Islam
WashingtonTimes ^ | 2/2/09 | Nat Hentoff

OP-ED: On Inauguration Day, after it got the United Nations to pass a gag rule on insulting religions, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) told our new president in a New York Times ad that Muslims "have compelling strategic and moral reasons to cooperate and peacefully coexist with the United States in particular, and with the West in general."

Many Muslims here and elsewhere want that partnership; but some, jihadists in the name of Islam, disagree violently. In its address to our new president, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (which has permanent status at the United Nations) made no mention of its own strategic skills that resulted, on Dec. 18, in the passage by the U.N. General Assembly of a nonbinding resolution (with strong advice to its members) that condemns "defamation of religion," especially Islam.

In an 83 to 53 vote, with 42 abstentions, the U.N. General Assembly urged nations to provide "adequate protections" in their laws or constitutions against "acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general."

Only Islam and Muslims are specifically named in this resolution against religious defamation, sponsored by Uganda on behalf of the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference, and cosponsored by Belarus and Venezuela. Opponents included the United States, a majority of European

I wouldn’t do that (defame Islam). They do a good enough job of that myself.

When Mohammed married 6 year old Aisha, and consummated the marriage at 9 years of age, are you calling Mohammed a Pedophile?

Inquiring minds want to know!

This religious anti-defamation proclamation is ONLY about Islam.

They don’t even try to hide it very well, besides its Orwellian name.

Intimidation is a major weapon of the Islamists and the Left. They have similar tactics and both intend to rule the world. The loser in this battle is freedom.

Yes...but their liberal, globalist, and free trader friends would pitch a fit if their beloved UN was moved out of New York...and putting them in The Hague will have the America-haters running to the Intl Criminal Court every time an American exerts one of their God-given rights.

I would prefer the UN permanently disbanded

There are no moderate muslims.

UN get the hell out.

Deport, no mosques, don’t let any in.

Or the people’s will be done.

I’m going straight to the mosques to record.

Al Farooq, two in Brooklyn, Newark and Jersey City... then we’ll see what’s up. I’ll send them what the children learn from as well. Of course they could care less, they even remove Israel from a map. United Nations my *ss.

Islam and republics (or democracies), don’t mix, period.

They only come for one reason, to take over from within.

Hamas, CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, JI, PMA all have decades plans on site re: taking over this country in stages. That enough is enough to take action.

I wonder if they’ve said anything re: honor killings and women beaten and held as slaves by muslims here in the US?

Nevermind.

And may I add that shouldn't someone be talking to the muzzy's about respect for those who think differently from them?

How bout we stop defaming them when they stop earning condemnation — attacking everybody and everything, bombings, chopping heads, ranting and raving, etc.?

defamation of religion should include killing the infidels, and when that is broken, we can institute the eye for an eye law that Jesus will enact in the case of the unrepentant. Notice I did not say in the case of the deserving.

Detroit area muslims trying to stifle free speech over alleged defamation of “prophet” Muhammad

Broadcast angers Muslims
Leaders want radio station to stop airing comments by priest they say defame Muhammad.

Gregg Krupa / The Detroit News

SOUTHFIELD — Muslims and interfaith leaders in Metro Detroit are asking a local radio station owner to discontinue broadcasts in which, they say, a Coptic priest has repeatedly defamed the Prophet Muhammad over the past year.

In an Arabic-language broadcast Wednesday on WNZK 680/690 AM, the Rev. Zakariah Boutros said the Muslim prophet Muhammad had engaged in necrophilia and gay sex, according to the Council on American Islamic Relations.

Boutros has previously come under fire from area Muslims, who say he disparages Islam. The controversial, American-based priest can be heard on purchased time slots on radio stations internationally. His words have stirred controversy in Egypt and Great Britain, and are embraced by a number of bloggers and Web sites that criticize Islam.

Amani Mostafa, who hosts the program “Questions About Faith” on which Boutros spoke Thursday, said Boutros was “reading from an Islamic text” when he said,

Problem is, “defaming” Islam requires nothing more than accurately reporting on the actions of its adherents.
