With thanks to TundraÂ Tabloids:
* Ihsanoglu, Islam’s emissary in charge of ‘Islamophobia’ and censorship, is tirelessly advocating islamic causes in the lands of the infidels, which must be brought under Islamic rule. Ishanoglu, right hand man for Islamist and Turkish PM Erdogan, Â represents the worlds largest lunatic asylum (the words of Pat Condell) which is Saudi Arabia. This account fromÂ TundraÂ Tabloids should be a nail in the coffin of this ridiculous organization. But with all the money the Saudi’s throw at it we are likely to be subjected of more of his efforts, which are all designed to bring us into the fold of Islam:
Stop the presses! U.N. anti-blasphemy resolution curtails free speech!
* Is somebody waking up?
The presidential candidates should be asked what they think about this. “U.N. Anti-Blasphemy Resolution Curtails Free Speech, Critics Say,” by Jennifer Lawinski forÂ FoxNews, October 3:
Religious groups and free-speech advocates are banding together to fight a United Nations resolution they say is being used to spread Sharia law to the Western world and to intimidate anyone who criticizes Islam.The non-binding resolution on “Combating the Defamation of Religion” is intended to curtail speech that offends religion — particularly Islam.
Pakistan and the Organization of the Islamic Conference introduced the measure to the U.N. Human Rights Council in 1999. It was amended to include religions other than Islam, and it has passed every year since.
In 2005, Yemen successfully brought a similar resolution before the General Assembly. Now the 192-nation Assembly is set to vote on it again.
The non-binding Resolution 62/145, which was adopted in 2007, says it “notes with deep concern the intensification of the campaign of defamation of religions and the ethnic and religious profiling of Muslim minorities in the aftermath of 11 September 2001.”
It “stresses the need to effectively combat defamation of all religions and incitement to religious hatred, against Islam and Muslims in particular.”
But some critics believe the resolution is a dangerous threat to freedom of speech everywhere.
The U.S. government mission in Geneva, in a statement, told the U.N. Human Rights Council in July that “defamation-related laws have been abused by governments and used to restrict human rights” around the world, and sometimes Westerners have been caught in the web.
Critics give some recent news events as examples of how the U.N. “blasphemy resolution” has emboldened Islamic authorities and threatened Westerners:
— On Oct. 3 in Great Britain, three men were charged for plotting to kill the publisher of the novel “The Jewel of Medina,” which gives a fictional account of the Prophet Muhammad and his child bride. FOXNews.com reported U.S. publisher Random House Inc., was going to release the book but stopped it from hitting shelves after it claimed that “credible and unrelated sources” said the book could incite violence by a “small, radical segment.”
— An Afghan student is on death row for downloading an article about the role of women in Islam, FOXNews.com also reported.
— In December 2007 “a court reportedly sentenced two foreigners to six months in prison for allegedly marketing a book deemed offensive to Aisha, one of the Prophet Muhammad’s wives,” the U.S. government said.
— A British teacher was sentenced to 15 days in jail in Sudan for offending Islam by allowing students to name the class teddy bear Muhammad in November 2007.
— In February 2007 in Egypt an Internet blogger was sentenced to four years in prison for writing a post that critiqued Islam.
— In 2004, Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was murdered after the release of his documentary highlighting the abuse of Muslim women.
“It’s obviously intended to have an intimidating effect on people expressing criticism of radical Islam, and the idea that you can have a defamation of a religion like this, I think, is a concept fundamentally foreign to our system of free expression in the United States,” said former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton…
Ä°hsanoÄŸlu: Islam “not just a guest in Europe”
* Â Europe owes its civilization to the Muzz:
Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ä°hsanoÄŸlu has said Islam is not an extrinsic addition to, but a fundamental element of European culture.Â
On a recent visit to Helsinki at the invitation of Finnish President Tarja Halonen, Ä°hsanoÄŸlu gave a lecture titled “Islam in Europe.” Stressing that his aim in giving this lecture was to stop Islamophobia from becoming widespread in Europe, Ä°hsanoÄŸlu told the Cihan news agency: “We argue that Islam is among the founding elements of Europe. The Ottomans ruled for five centuries in the Balkans, and Muslim rule in Andalusia lasted eight centuries. Above all, 41 million Muslims live in Europe right now. So Islam cannot be regarded as an extrinsic element in Europe. It is one of the founding elements of the European civilization.”Stressing that European civilization was built with many contributions from Muslim culture in terms of science, philosophy and humanistic values, Ä°hasanoÄŸlu said, “If we can share the idea that Islam is an essential element of Europe, Europe’s perception of Turkey’s EU membership would change.” Ä°hsanoÄŸlu said there is confusion about the place of Islam in Europe. “Islam has been in Europe for 14 centuries; it is not a foreigner in Europe,” he added.
Ä°hsanoÄŸlu also said it was not acceptable to equate those who engage in terrorism on behalf of Islam with Islam itself, adding: “Where do they get the authorization to commit terrorist acts under the name of Islam? Nobody has such a right, either in religion or in politics.” Ramazan Kerpeten/
