Iran: Obama can be sued in US courts under UN blasphemy law that he signed onto

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.

Iran: Obama can be sued in US courts under UN blasphemy law that he signed onto

Hoisted by his own anti-free speech petard. If they do this, we will see whether treaties that the U.S. has signed can supersede the First Amendment. “Obama can be sued over insulting film: Iran official,” from PressTV, September 16 (thanks to JW):

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

And surely “the rights of minorities” includes free speech?

  1. If this goes to court. It will just marginalize more people away from the UN, Islam and the Democrats.

    Obama had no right signing that treaty and should be impeached and arrested for treason.

    All laws that he signed should be seen as null and void.

    Who is going to enforce the judgement?
