At last! Finally, Eklemeddin Ihsanoghlu’s wildest dream comes true. Of course, its all nicely wrapped in a package of “Global efforts for the total elimination of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”.

“We are disappointed to see that despite our efforts and discussions on this resolution, the text once again seems to take us farther apart, rather than helping to bridge the historical divides,” said John F. Sammis, an official of the U.S. Mission to the U.N., told the committee considering the resolution. “Most importantly, the resolution still seeks to curtail and penalize speech.”
But if Muslims had heard them, they would have been offended, doncha know. A British court upholds Sharia: “Anti-Allah outburst earns EDL supporter Â£200 fine after protest in Leicester,” by Terry Hall for the Leicester Mercury, via JW….
“Controversial opinions” are verboten! You can have any opinion you want, as long as it is that of the political and media elites! Atlas Shrugs is getting blocked for the same reason. There will be no veterans committing thoughtcrime!
