Not gonna happen.
Via Arab News:
The Kingdoms Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh called on the international community to criminalize acts of abusing great prophets and messengers such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all), according to a statement issued today.
The statement was issued in response film in the United States denigrating Islam and ridiculing the Prophet (pbuh).
Al-Asheikh also appealed to the Ummah to react to any attempt to denigrate Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by strictly adhering to the values advocated by the Prophet (pbuh) instead of unleashing violence against innocent people, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The mufti said the attempts of a filmmaker filled with hatred to Islam would not harm the great personality of the Prophet (pbuh) or anything in Islam in any manner but would only reflect on the people who spread venomous ideas.

Via Egypt Independent:
Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayyeb has demanded a UN resolution criminalizing blasphemy against Islam and other world religions, as well as demanding that those he described as misled be punished for committing these heinous acts of abuse to the Prophet.
In a statement released Saturday, Tayyeb called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to criminalize the defamation of religion, saying that such actions and words threaten world peace and international security.
Is not that irresponsible tampering, Mr. Secretary General, similar to the issue of [anti-Semitic] prejudice, which you condemn all the time, and [against] which verdicts were issued against alleged perpetrators in many countries of the world, even if they are great thinkers and scientists? Tayyeb asked in the statement.
Tayyeb also called on all Egyptians to keep calm and condemned attacks on innocent people and expressed sympathy for victims of the recent violence. He also stressed the need to protect diplomatic missions and the headquarters of international organizations.
When churches can open in Saudi Arabia.
Awesome! Will they include not blaspheming Judaism & Christianity?
Hillary had better watch it. Her Muslim friends she’s trying to usher into power along with her medai minions and the Prez, will throw her over like a skank as soon as she’s no longer useful to them.
If I were shilling for them I’d read the Koran, but not her.
Why do Muslims spit after writing Mohammed’s name?
Think I’ll go outside and face east towards mecca and take a leak in honor of the gutter religion of peace.
F U .
Its mere existence is a blasphemous insult to Christianity.
Mohamed can kiss my butt.
Im into parking lots in that part of the world are you?
Just wondering how soon the 1st. Amendment, the free speech part, will be cancelled with “anything is a hate speech crime”.
This internationaL law would be like America’s hate laws.
The hate laws only apply to whites. Blacks are never guilty.
This law would apply only to Islam,Jews Christians and other religions would never be found to need the law.
The Left will support this. They want to criminalize criticism of their great prophet Obama.
Not very politic are they? If they really wanted this to get support, they’d also list the Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu (and the other Taoist masters), Zoroaster, Bahá’u’lláh, L. Ron Hubbard, and (oh, and what the heck, give the secularists a thrill) Darwin.
Mohammad says Praise Jesus Christ the LORD and God Bless America
Okey Mr Mufti, that might be worth considering IF we can also get laws against. . .
Hijacking planes full of innocent people and crashing them into buildings. . .
Ordering your sons to find and kill their own sister for wearing makeup. . .
Sawing the heads off of live jews on video. . .
Burning churchs full of live christians. . .
Strapping bomb vest on your own children and sending them into pizza parlors. . .
and on and on and on. . .
We shouldn’t say “peace be upon him” about Jesus — He’s still alive.
Mohammad isn’t. Big difference.
He was, He is, and always will be The Son of God!
This hits the liberals directly -- the Da Vinci code would have to be banned as would The life of Brian, Jesus Christ Superstar, SouthPark etc. etc. also the various "art" (and I use that loosely) works like "P*ss Christ", etc. would have to be banned.
a liberals v/s/ Mo0selimbs fight...
