"Stop portraying the Prophet Mohammed as a suicide bomber or more Muslims will become suicide bombers and murder you blasphemers." That's pretty much what Algeria's Ambassador to the U.N., Idriss Jazairy, who serves as chairman of the U.N.'s Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards told the Associated Press in an interview about efforts by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to pass a U.N. treaty banning blasphemy against Islam.
The exact quote from the AP:
"If we keep hitting this glass wall and say there's nothing you can do about Islamophobia you can do something about anti-Semitism but Islamophobia is out of bounds you give an ideal platform for recruitment of suicide bombers,"
The blog UN Watch reported on November 12th on a letter dated October 29th sent by the OIC to the Ad Hoc Committee about the proposal. (PDF file of letter here.) The letter was submitted by Pakistani Ambassador Zamir Akram.
The letter says religious insults and ridicule "creates social unrest and is a form of psychological violence."
The letter decries several European nations: Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland for having offended Islam.
In 2005, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published a series of cartoons by various artists depicting Mohammed, whose image in any form is prohibited under Islamic law.
The AP reports the Obama administration has been engaging in diplomatic "trench warfare" to "squash the proposal."
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke out strongly against the proposal last month.
The complaints in the letter and by Ambassador Jazairry that Jews are already protected is laughable--and cynical coming from the one religion with many adherents dedicated to eradicating Jews from the planet.
The OIC letter complains of "negative stereotyping" and "violence" against Muslims. The OIC needs to have a talk with Ambassador Jazairry about his threat of suicide bombers if Islam is not protected by the U.N. He certainly is promoting violence and reinforcing a negative stereotype about Islam.
But of course, SUBMIT NOW, or else, right?
Who will be the first to tell them to stuff it!!!
Non muslims warn of genocidal rage against muslims if they don’t knock this crap off.
Perhaps we should warn of the elimination of Mecca and (whatever the name of the other religious abomination is) right afterwards.
Earth to Islam. We’ve had it.
Make our day.
Need bumper sticker:
Stamp out Westerncivilizationophobia
Sounds like an extortionate demand to me.
“Stop portraying the Prophet Mohammed as a suicide bomber or more Muslims will become suicide bombers and murder you blasphemers.”
This guy is a tower of intellectual reason.
muhammad was a theif, murderer, pedophile, terrorist, liar, etc. Other than that, I am sure he was a swell guy.
They are a religion of peace, and THEY WILL KILL YOU to prove it!
The proof is right in front of the left, but out of fear they pretend it doesn’t exist.
Euthanize the remaining subjects. I'll be in the lab writing up my summary.
A friend of jihadist Hasan?
How about we institute a ban on all muslim suicide bombers and if they don’t agree we bomb all their holy sites into oblivion?
Hmpf, that sucks.
“Say we’re not suicide bombers or we’ll send suicide bombers to kill you’’. Have I got that right? F! Islam. I’m sick and tired of being threatened by this pygmy culture. These moral idiots need to understand this isn’t the 7th. century anymore, its the 21st. for cryin’ out loud!
Islam is only a religion to the extent that Satanism is.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
H. L. Mencken (maybe)
The time will come when we have had enough of this crap and death squads will form, more or less spontaneously, to take out the worst of the internal Islamist threats.
I’m not advocating it, mind you. I’m just pointing out the obvious.
Euthanize the remaining subjects. I'll be in the lab writing up my summary.'
