On March 28th, the United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution (32-0) that directs the body’s expert on free speech to report on
“individuals and news media for negative comments on Islam.” Lists of those that speak negatively towards Islam will be drawn up.
So much for free speech. And what will happen to those on the hit list?
(reminds me of a Nazi list ... write up people who disagree and turn them in)
No other religion is covered by the Muslim-backed resolution
There is a question as to if the UN has violated it’s own Declaration of Human Rights with this vote. Also – it is believed that the resolution
will give repressive regimes, both Islamic and non-Islamic, a further excuse to crack down on ‘dissent’ in their own countries.
What about Muslim discrimination against other religions in Islamic countries? For example, in Pakistan and Egypt, the two countries that proposed
the anti-free speech motion, Christians are a persecuted minority. What about the president of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi? Last month he insulted
Christians and Jews worldwide when he went to Uganda and called the Bible a forgery.
