Islamic states push for global anti-blasphemy resolution
cna ^ | December 3, 2010

Posted on 12/03/2010 1:24:18 PM PST by NYer

Madrid, Spain, Dec 3, 2010 / 03:58 pm (CNA).- The Organization of the Islamic Conference has sponsored a draft resolution at the United Nations that would condemn the “defamation of religion” and create a global “anti-blasphemy law.”

The draft resolution was presented by Pakistan in the name of the Islamic conference, which holds a majority of the seats on the U.N. Human Rights Council, according to the Spanish daily ABC.

The Muslim organization hopes to secure passage of the resolution by the U.N. General Assembly. However, the resolution has been met with widespread rejection, especially for its condemnation of the criticism of radical Islam by the media.

The United States and European countries have warned that a resolution of this kind constitutes an attack on freedom of expression and could lead to greater persecution of religious minorities.  Experts say “defamation” can only be liable to legal sanction when it involves persons and not concepts or feelings.

According to the Spanish daily, many Muslim states have a legal system based on Sharia (Islamic law) and have established anti-blasphemy laws that in practice only condemn insults against the prophet Muhammad but not against other religions.

Would that also help stop many of the rapes, murders and desecration of all things Christian in primarily Muslim countries?

Jesus is the Son of God.

There, I’ve just violated the UN’s “blasphemy law”.

Nope, this is “one way” for the Muslims.
They, like all leftists, always hide the true intent behind other words.

I strongly doubt it. IMHO, this is the next phase of Islam's attempt to actualize Sharia law, worldwide. As the number of christians continues to shrink through limited reproduction, Muslims are reproducing in large numbers.

The following is a description (slightly modified) from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. www.frontline.org.za/books_videos/sti.htm

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness.

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs [Europe, Australia, USA and Japan]. Six percent of US prison inmates are Muslim. Like any other minority, they won’t integrate, but work to build their own separate community.

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. South Africa's Muslim population is 2%, but they control 35% of the businesses, a large percentage of the banks and have five Cabinet seats while Christians (77% of the population) have none.

They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves (along with threats for failure to comply).

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia; Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world, but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. (Ei: car-burnings in France last October.) Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats.

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (India, Mindanao, Philippines).

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare [Indonesia].

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya (infidel tax). (Sudan, Kosovo, Lebanon and Egypt).

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide [Western Papua (New Guinea), Iran, Biafra, Turkey and North Nigeria].

100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" - House of Peace - as in Saudi Arabia, Libya and Yemen.

"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."

I guess their oil is the only POSSIBLE reason to shed American blood for these people. It begs a question: WHY THE HELL AREN’T WE USING OUR OWN?? ARE WE MAD? (Don’t answer that.)

There was a most revealing scene in the classic film “Lawrence of Arabia” that expresses the muslim penchant — indeed, REQUIREMENT — to lie to non-muslims to further their cause.

Go to 4:45 in the link directly below to see that scene.

If you STILL don’t think the West is under attack, you are clearly delusional.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZHKujjul-I

THEN go to the link at the bottom for a real eye-opener!

The below message from my contact, a retired USAF Fighter Pilot (served in combat), living in Alaska. He is fluent in Arabic reading as well as speaking, and has read the Qu ran in the original Arabic. He vouches for the content of the Video presented in the link below. Below are his words to his correspondents. I suppress his name and e-mail address to protect him as he has previously received death threats for what he has published. See the video and wonder why, the best known apostate in the world (BHO) from Islam has not had a FATWA of death issued by the Jihaddist Imams of the world!

A group calling themselves “White Roses” created a video to inform non-Muslims about Islam. The name of this video is Three Things About Islam
White Roses is head quartered in Sweden. This first version is in English. The name “White Roses” is based on a student resistance group “Die weiße Rose” in Nazi Germany. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, from June 1942 until February 1943, which called for active opposition to Adolf Hitler’s regime.

I urge all of you to view this video. You may be familiar with the points made in this video but many Americans are not, either out of a desire to put their heads in the sand to avoid confronting the problem or just simple ignorance of the crisis we face. It may not be possible to get all the Dramatis Persona to acknowledge this Islamic road to perdition but those Americans, who just do not know, out of ignorance, just might find the learning experience worthwhile.

As a person who has spent lengthy time studying Islam I can tell you this video is one of the best I have seen…it’s short and to the point and all those points are dead on!

Well if they REALLY want an anti-blasphemy resolution then they will have to outlaw Islam because it is anti-Christ which actually IS blasphemy!

Difficult for me to give credibility to the quotation being so blatant, not that I put it past the Saudis to believe such and actually act as such. I believe this goes back to the first Iraq war when papa Bush came out promoting a ‘new world order’. Further I tend to think there are money/power ties between western Europe and far east oil.

We’re going to carve a likeness of Mohammed on our Christmas ham. That way, sooner or later, everyone who partakes will be able to ‘issue’ a ‘statement’ regarding one of history’s greatest monsters.

We’ve requested that everyone flush twice.

Fine. Start with the blasphemy that is Islam. I volunteer to drive the bulldozer that takes down the abomination that they call the Dome of the Rock, and the flea market next to it that they call a mosque. It was a noble sanctuary before the Muslims showed up.

It's impossible to blaspheme a Satanic abomination faux religion like Islam. The best you could hope to do would be defile its irrelevant concepts of piety, like peeing on a Koran, or smearing pig fat all over a convenient imam, or failing to genitally mutilate your daughter.

Islam -- in any form -- is the problem, period, end of story.

We see no distinction in quality between Islamic terrorism and Sharia law: only a distinction in degree. -- Terrorism By Degrees
