U.N. Defames Freedom

The group with the United Nations so laughably named the Human Rights Council adopted the non-binding resolution, proposed by Pakistan on behalf of Islamic states – with a vote of 23 states in favor and 11 against, with 13 abstentions – to define the defamation of religion as a human rights violation.

Of course, since Pakistan was fronting for the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) when they crafted the resolution, the document in question doesn’t mention Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, or any other religion as needing or deserving special protections.

Only Islam is mentioned. From Reuters:

Pakistan, speaking for the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), said a “delicate balance” had to be struck between freedom of expression and respect for religions.

The resolution said Muslim minorities had faced intolerance, discrimination and acts of violence since the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, including laws and administrative procedures that stigmatize religious followers.

“Defamation of religious is a serious affront to human dignity leading to a restriction on the freedom of their adherents and incitement to religious violence,” the adopted text read, adding that “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism.”

Leaving aside the intrinsic wrongness and gross stupidity of trying to declare defamation of any religion as a human rights violation, and also leaving aside the evil intent in evidence in trying to limit freedom of speech in favor of religion, the solely Islamocentric nature of this abomination of a resolution makes nothing more than an effort at using the United Nations to wage a white-collar jihad against the free peoples of the world.

My response is what every right thinking, freedom loving human’s response should be to this sort outrage perpetrated evil vermin masquerading as men: Go to Hell on the camel you rode in on, Abdur-Iblis!

To make the point a little clearer for those with linguistic, cognitive, cultural, or evolutionary deficiencies:

Are the above images grossly offensive? Yes, incredibly so. Are they a violation of anyone’s human rights? No, not in the least – unless you’re willing to claim that you have the basic human right not to be offended. Of course, in that case, your opinion is offensive to me and violates my human rights. 😉

Now please understand, I have nothing in particular against Islam – certainly little or no more than I have with any of the Abrahamic faiths - or Muslims in general, though some of the actions of the more radical sects of Islam and those of certain individual Muslims are of a sort that I would gladly exterminate them unto the last adherent and/or scion.

These quite offensive images were posted in response to the U.N.Human Rights Council’s attempt to criminalize free speech and expression critical of Islam – and theoretically any religion.

As I’ve posted before, I will fight the Islamists’ white collar jihad with my voice, my vote, and – if needs be and the Devil will out - my attorneys. If they want to take it beyond that, I have developed a fondness in recent times for the M24A3 chambered for .338 Lapua Magnum – much more punch than my old .300 Win Mag and lighter and very much more accurate than my old, but still loved to this day, M82A1 – which should solve for most “problems” within 1200m or so.

    I read about this the other day and mentioned it to some online friends. While I usually don’t intentionally provoke people by downing their religious “characters” (for lack of a better word), I agree with the Canadian diplomat who said that individuals, not religions, have rights. I know already in some countries one can be in trouble if people believe her to speak against the Quran or Muhammad. I would hate for more of the world to become that way. It’s like political correctness (which I tend to dislike anyway) gone mad!

    OTOH, and I know this is not the issue being discussed, I don’t support people using tax money to draw pictures of crucifixes in urine. You can do that with your own pens and paper, but don’t ask ME and other believers in Jesus Christ to pay for something we personally find offensive.

    I hope the difference in those situations stands out to you.

    I completely understand the difference between private expression and state subsidized expression, and I agree with your opinion to some extent. I say “to some extent” because I’m always concerned about the stifling effects of governments choosing what is and what is not sponsored, whether it be art or other things.

    I don’t make a habit o denigrating people’s religions or religious figures either. In fact I had a hard time working with the images in this post. Yet, if the U.N. is going to try to say that people can’t freely express themselves – especially if they base their case on a single religion – I’m going to fight against and post that sort of image.

    This makes me sad. This is a perfect example of good intentions, stupid/wrong/idiotic/mentally retarded etc. choice. I

    Given who wrote the resolution and who has control of the Human Rights Council, I don’t think that there were any “good intentions.” This all came about in the wake of those Dutch cartoons that so pissed off the Muslims.

    For once, you and I are in total agreement.

  6. Aafke Says:

    I haven’t been on your blog lately and have missed a lot of good things I see 🙂

    While I find all these cartoons pretty offensive, except the one on the left top-row, which is mildly, slightly, funny, I think these cartoons don’t even deserve the name, because they lack a crucial quality: they are not funny.
    However, if you don’t like them, don’t look at them. And until the muslims stop publishing the same low level, offensive and not-funny cartoons themselves, but targetting Jews, christians and Americans, they have no right to complain.

    This resolution is fake anyway, because what they really mean is that nobody is allowed to critisise Islam, while everybody and everything else is still fair game.

  7. jonolan Says:

    Welcome back; I’ve missed you.

    Of course, Aafke. That was the idea beyond this abomination – sheltering Islam from criticism and furthering the Islamists’ agenda against humanity.

    But it will thankfully come to naught, as all or most UN resolutions do, and on the off chance that I’m wrong in this, mankind can and will deal it in the same way we deal with all disease-ridden vermin; we’ll exterminate them.

    Sadly, in the latter possibility, a lot of good people of the Islamic faith will be killed alongside the misborn creatures that mock mankind with their poor aping of it.
