Egypt Salafi urges U.N. to criminalize contempt of Islam
Reuters ^ | Sept. 22, 2012 | Marwa Awad

(Reuters) - Egypt's president and other Muslim leaders should demand the U.N. criminalize contempt of religion after the release of an anti-Islamic film and cartoons which demonstrate growing racism, said the leader of the biggest ultra-orthodox Islamist party.

Despite doctrinal and political differences with President Mohamed Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafist Nour Party played a key role in supporting it during presidential elections in June.

Led by Emad Abdel Ghaffour, it now ranks as the second-largest party in parliament and plays a formidable force in Egypt's new politics.

"We call for legislation or a resolution to criminalize contempt of Islam as a religion and its Prophet," said Ghaffour, one of four permanent assistants to the president, on Saturday.

Why should the rest of the world bow to Islam? Who is the U.N. to set laws for the sovereign nations?

The UN has absolutely no legal authority to anything like that or to enforce that

Unfortunately, there are a lot of Islamic countries, something like that could go far.

I dont get it...Muslimes pray 5 times a day.

If Allah is so powerful why do Musilmes always

either try to redeem themselves or get Man to help them?

They live miserable lives in arid, dirty sh!tholes of a country and couldn’t not get by without assistance from the West.

And they wonder why the rest of the sane world doesnt want the “blessings” of Allah?

The US should recognize Islam as a political movement not a religion. It is a totalitarian form of government that aims to undermine legitimate government. It should not be accorded 1st Amendment protection inside the United States. That simple change of status would cut the legs out from under Islam’s attempt to infiltrate and overthrow the US govwrnment.

I’ve been referring to these Muslims as barbarians and unintentionally paying them a compliment. Muslims are much lower on civilization’s scale than are barbarians; Muslims are savages.

I cannot wait for the Anti-Islam theme park to open.

Sort of like a Disneyland but with Islamic theme park rides and shows, BUT...

Its definitely NOT praising Allah, instead its all about using songs like “Its a non-Islam world after all” playing nonstop to shows depicting animatronic Moslem rioting while the theme park guests burn Korans on a dark ride.

Many rides will be slap against Islam, bacon will be the most popular fragrance, dogs will be welcome as guests at any place in the park, bring along a pig and admission is free.

And the real atrocity is that our government will try to find some way to actually criminalize any “affronts” to Islaam.

Don’t think so. If I want to make fun of a so-called prophet, whether it’s Mohammed, Joseph Smith, or L. Ron Hubbard, I’m going to.
