Iranian Regime Threatens to Sue Obama Using New UN Blasphemy Law He Signed
Gateway Pundit ^ | September 16, 2012 | Jim Hoft

In December the Obama Administration pushed a UN resolution that banned criticism of Islam.

The Obama Administration helped the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) push through their resolution condemning the stereotyping, negative profiling and stigmatization of people based on religion. Team Obama led the way for the resolution to pass through the General Assembly.

Now the Iranian Regime is threatening to sue Barack Obama using that same blasphemy law. Press TV reported:

A senior Iranian official says US President Barack Obama could face legal action in connection with the production of an anti-Islam movie by an American Jew.

“A complaint could be filed with US courts against Obama for his violation of articles 18 and 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) calling for respect of faiths,” Javad Mohammadi, the deputy head of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution (SCCR), said on Sunday.

“Article 18 and 27 of the ICCPR, adopted by the United Nation, stipulate that the religion and the rights of the minorities should be respected,” Mohammadi said.

The US government is a signatory to this covenant and has to respect it. Therefore, an individual or an NGO (non-governmental organization) can file a lawsuit against the president of the country for breach of the covenant, he added.

Mohammadi heaped praise on the Muslims for their massive protests against the movie, noting “Protest against insults to religious sanctities should not be limited to time, place and customary reactions and we should undertake legal measures.”

Don’t look at us, Barack. We tried to warn you.

Hey, can we start a class action lawsuit against various ME countries for their violent rhetoric towards Christianity? What about the butchering of Coptic Christians in Egypt?

Wait a minute, what did I miss?

Obama could face legal action in connection with the production of an anti-Islam movie by an American Jew

Is there a second movie here?
The one they're protesting about was made by an Egyptian Copt, wasn't it?

Isn’t Congress supposed to ratify treaties?

Is a “resolution” binding of all who signed; does it have the same stature as a treaty?

I can’t imagine this getting very far, but we have plenty of lawyers who need work.

Nikoula is an Egyptian Copt who is much less of a minority than islam which in truth is not a minority at all. He certainly is not a Jew in any sense of the word. This idiot threat is as insane as the person makng it.

The above is a link to a recent speech my Michelle Bachmann addressing this issue in a very good speech - was in a link from another thread by another freeper.

Washington warned us about entering into entangling alliances, But that's just such an ‘old’ idea.

Since when is a UN resolution a “law”? It carries as much legal weight as an Obama campaign promise.

Typical that Muslims will twist anything.

Articles 18 and 21 say nothing about what about these ragheads are threatening to sue over. Hell article 27 goes so far as to say they should do it among THEMSELVES!

I give you articles 18 and 27:
Article 18

1. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching.

2. No one shall be subject to coercion which would impair his freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice.

3. Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs may be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary to protect public safety, order, health, or morals or the fundamental rights and freedoms of others.

4. The States Parties to the present Covenant undertake to have respect for the liberty of parents and, when applicable, legal guardians to ensure the religious and moral education of their children in conformity with their own convictions.

Article 27

In those States in which ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities exist, persons belonging to such minorities shall not be denied the right, in community with the other members of their group, to enjoy their own culture, to profess and practise their own religion, or to use their own language.

Sam Whatsisname doesn’t exist. This is my take on it:

The movie MIGHT have been made by the Nanouk (or whatever his name is) Copt on probabtion. IF he made it, someone ordered him to or paid him to. His line of work is selling at swap meets and working in the “gas station industry”. Not movies.

Then someone took the crapola movie and dubbed it over. The real questions are who dubbed it, and who told Nanouk to make it, or did he really make it?

IMHO 0bastard’s people had him make it (through layers of deniability) so they could wave it around as the reason for this worldwide intifada. Naturally most of these crazy muzzies never saw this thing.
