Further evidence of the power of the Islamic nations is seen at the UN.
The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), a group of 57 Muslim majority nations, holds the largest voting bloc in the UN. The OIC
Secretary General, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, is the one who congratulated Obama on his inauguration, and appealed for the new president's help to work
out problems that face the Muslim world.
In 1990, the OIC adopted the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam at the nineteenth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers on August 5, 1990
dictating that Islam is the only legitimate religion.
The ACLJ said, in promotion of its petition opposing the resolution, that: "They're attempting to pass a sinister resolution that is nothing more
than blatant religious bigotry."
It is very important to understand. This radical proposal would outlaw Christianity ... it would make the proclamation of your faith an
After Bush resisted years of such initiatives at the UN, the Obama Administration is co-sponsoring with Egypt, another anti-free speech resolution
at the UN.
This resolution has no immediate effect in law but provides Muslim countries with ammunition when they feel central tenets of Islam are being
challenged. Approved by the U.N. Human Rights Council in early October 2009, it calls on states to condemn and criminalize "any advocacy of national,
racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence."
The real hate and discrimination is directed against non-Muslims in the UN Defamation of Religion. The U.S. has no business participating in alliances
and organizations that endorse a specific religion or in any way limits free speech. Against all the freedoms enjoyed and valued in the West, if we
remain members of the UN, we will not only be assimilated into a one-world government, but a Shari'ah one-world government that dictates everything
from finances to personal and religious rights. All that the Constitution stands for is being mocked and abused by even allowing such an organization
to convene on American soil.

This part of your post is blatantly wrong, sorry.
The Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam only concerns countries that are members of the OIC. This is NOT (!!) a UN declaration! This
declaration talks about human rights in the OIC member countries, and in one of the sections, it states that Sharia shall be the legal basis. All OIC
member countries are Muslim, so it makes only sense that they use THEIR law.
The UN's anti-defamation resolution is something completely different. First of all, it's a NON-BINDING resolution. Secondly, all it states is that
open racism shouldn't be allowed. It doesn't state you can't DISCUSS religion, it only says you can't follow a random Christian 8hrs/day while
shouting "you believe in a talking snake...you're an idiot". Because that would be racist. Dunno about you guys, but racism is something
despicable...so I got nothing against this declaration. It doesn't free speech as long as it's REASONABLE and not just a HATE RANT with any facts.
Either way, the resolution is non-binding.
I know rightsidednews.com loves to mix up those 2 resolutions by stating they're set in stone and valid for all EU countries...or that they state
Islam is the only true religion. They take it completely out of context and portray it as an "invasion of Islam" to monger fear in people.
As for the rest of your posts. I disagree with many Muslim core believes. But first of all, they have a right to follow their belief as long as it
doesn't hurt anyone. And secondly, there's plenty of Muslims who don't take things literally...just like there's plenty of sane Christians who
don't believe the world is only 5-6000 years old, or that there are talking snakes, or that we once roamed the earth with dinosaurs. You shouldn't
take religious scriptures literally...and many Christians/Muslims/Jews don't.
It's obvious you're trying to portray the Muslims as horrible people who are trying to invade us. You are using parts of Islam you disagree with
(and some of them rightfully so) to claim there is some sort of evil invasion, and you generalize a whole people by the actions of few.
And your claim that they're in a "perfect situation" to invade now and take over our world is total bull#. Do you really think the average Muslim
wanted those wars? Do you have any idea with how much prejudice they have to cope since those few fundamentalist assholes attacked the Western world?
Do you know how bad that was for their business?
Yes there's fundamentalist assholes...but they exist on both sides of the fence. Talk to a Taliban and you wanna puke, but I've spoken to some
fundamentalist Evangelicals and to me it sounded like I'm talking to Hitler. They're a MINORITY, arguably a minority that screams very loudly, but
still a minority!
