Clinton urges EU to convict publishers of caricatures
Daily Times Pakistan ^ | 2/17/06 | Daily Times

Posted on 02/17/2006 3:18:19 PM PST by voletti

ISLAMABAD: Former US president Bill Clinton on Friday condemned the publication of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) caricatures by European newspapers and urged countries concerned to convict the publishers.

Talking to reporters after meeting Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Islamabad, Clinton said he disagreed with the caricatures and that the publication was against religious and ethical norms. Clinton said he had no objection to peaceful demonstrations being held worldwide, but this was not the time for violence. He said it was the time to promote inter-faith harmony and stand together on the issue.

He said the people’s religious convictions should be respected at all costs and the media should be disallowed to play with the religious sentiments of other faiths. He said the media could criticise any issue including governments and people, but nobody had the right to play with the sentiments of other faiths.

Clinton said people in the US had also condemned the publication and were deeply concerned over it. He said they respected Islam, as it was the fastest growing religion in the US. Clinton also called on President Pervez Musharraf and both men discussed the India-Pakistan peace process and Afghanistan’s peace and stabilisation process.

Musharraf underlined the centrality of the Kashmir issue in the Indo-Pak peace process and the importance of moving towards the conflict resolution stage. Clinton praised Musharraf’s efforts to promote peace and stability in the region. Musharraf thanked Clinton for the support extended to the Pakistani government by the Clinton Foundation for the HIV/AIDS programme. He also expressed the gratitude of Pakistanis to the relief and reconstruction assistance provided for the earthquake victims by the US.

Earlier, Aziz told Clinton that Pakistan was working towards peace and stability in the region through a strong economy, effective diplomacy, credible defence and promotion of inter-faith harmony. He said Pakistan was also making efforts to ensure peace in the region by settling disputes in an amicable way. He said Islam was a religion of peace and Muslims had been hurt by the publication of the caricatures, which reflected the ignorance and insensitivity of the western media. Clinton praised the role played by Musharraf and Aziz in achieving a high degree economic growth and wide-ranging structural reforms besides pursuing peace in the region and across the globe.

Clintoon's been shooting his mouth off abroad, just like Al Gore. Whoring away for $$ or publicity and willing to say anything and everything however bad that may make America look or imperil our freedoms and values. Then there's Sandy berger, another clintoon admin crony who tries to steal sensitive documents, not to mention janet reno and then there's hitlery herself....
Shame on the clintoon admin and all its beneficiaries.

Right. Our punk anti Christ isn't happy with the work he did to proliferate nuclear weapons. He has his eye on Kofi's job, wants to make the UN more of a menace. Anything can happen. Kofi Annan could keel over next week from a heart attack or get hit by a subway train

I agree. I am no fan of Clinton but would be shocked if he urged the EU to convict publishers. That is un American and unconstitutional. Maybe that's why he's not pushing for conviction of the few who published them in the US>

AS LONG AS THE RELIGION IS NOT CHRISTIAN.

Maybe it's time Christians begin to react to their grandual extermination by the press and the jurists. But no, Christians do not riot, and so the ... beat ... goes ... on.

"He said the media could criticise any issue including governments and people, but nobody had the right to play with the sentiments of other faiths."

But, Oh Bent One, the muzzies don't play. The just murder those of other faiths outright.

"Clinton said people in the US had also condemned the publication and were deeply concerned over it. He said they respected Islam, as it was the fastest growing religion in the US.

Speaking for himself, I'm sure. Whoever 'they' are, I don't think a handful of fearful and appeasing liberal/socialists democrats are representative of the opinion of millions of Americans who are in a state of controlled rage against the murderous cult masquerading as a 'religion' and invading our country.

I truly think this was a shot across by the bow by Clinton -- don't post negative articles about Her Shrillness or we'll get you. They probably still control minions within the IRS and can do extraordinary damage to their enemies.

I've always thought of Clinton as supremely corrupt and amoral, but now he exhibits tendencies of troglodite-like ignorance. Convict them? Of what, religious sacrilege? Wouldn't the majority of the leftist atheist block of the Democrat Communist Party be vulnerable to prosecution if such a precedent were established? Including his wife and the leader of the party itself? Or is it just cartoons he wants to outlaw? Then that Rall "cartoonist" fellow better find a good place to hide.

For once DeBorchgrave has it right; this whole "Cartoon Intifada" is a sham, a fraud. These people aren't rioting because they are insulted at the abomination of the Danish cartoons.What do they know from Danish cartoons?

If the Danish Islamist Imams hadn't spread them all over the middle eastern press, and added a few phony "ringers" just to make their claims of sacrilege ring true, none of these Pakstani villagers, or Egyptian peasants, or Lebanese city dwellers would have ever heard or seen any of the cartoons in question.

No, this is just a new gambit in the Al Qaida Wahabbists war against Western Civilization, since they are currently losing both militarily and in the PR sense. Support for Bin Laden and his terrorist ilk has declined precipitously since the foolhardy attacks by Zarquawi in Jordan, and the successful elections in Iraq.

Remember the old Warner Brothers cartoons, where some character is bamboozled into being a "sucker" and his entire head is replace with the image of a giant candy sucker for a moment? Look at Clinton as he spouts this nonsense and realize that this "brilliant" Rhodes Scholar has been taken in and sold a bill of goods by the worst terrorists in history. Stupid isn't the word for it... gullible is more appropriate. Heaven help us if these idiots gain power again!
