Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion: Mandate Extension

The initial draft resolution on the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, tabled  June 7, consisted of three boilerplate paragraphs and an enumerated list of seven items.

A revised draft tabled June 9 consisted of four boilerplate paragraphs and an enumerated list of seven items.

A revised draft tabled June 11 by Spain for the European Union  consisted of eight proposed boiler plate paragraphs and an enumerated list of  seven items.  It appears on initial inspection that the first four paragraphs and seven enumerated items are the same as the other revised draft.  But the four new proposed paragraphs are different.

On June 14, Pakistan submitted proposed amendments on behalf of the OIC.

They would extend the Reporteur’s mandate to include:

  • Examination of incidents of incitement to religious hatred, stereotyping, etc. and recommend   remedial measures.
  • Encourage adoption of policies to ensure respect for places of worship and public expressions of belief.
  • Report on instances of violation of the right to freedom of religion.
  • Working closely with mass media to ensure the creation of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religions…

Resolution 14/L.5/Rev.1 Freedom of religion or belief: Mandate of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief.  This draft is expected to be voted on June 18.   It consists of four preambular paragraphs and an enumerated list of fifteen items.  Eight of these need some attention.

  1. Condemns all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief,  as well as violations of the freedom of thought, conscience, religion or belief,
  2. Stresses that everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion or belief, which includes the freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of one’s choice and the freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest one’s religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance,
  3. Condemns any advocacy of religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence,
  4. Deplores the overall rise in instances of intolerance and violence directed against  members of many religious and other communities in various parts of the world,
  5. Deplores also the global rise and number of incidents of religious hatred, discrimination, intolerance and violence, which may be manifested by the derogatory.   stereotyping as well as stigmatization of persons based on their religion or belief,
  6. Expresses serious concern at all attacks on religious places, sites and shrines in violation of international law, in particular human rights and humanitarian law, including  any deliberate destruction of relics and monuments,
  7. Emphasizes that, restrictions on the freedom to manifest one’s religion or belief are permitted only if limitations are prescribed by law, are necessary to protect public safety, order, health or morals, or the-fundamental rights and freedoms of others, are non-discriminatory and are applied in a manner that does not vitiate the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion,
  8. Emphasizes the important role of media in the creation and promotion of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity, as well as – multiculturalism,
  1. Do they really condemn dhimmitude, which subjugates conquered Christians in a sub human state of submission?  Do the really condemn violations of freedom of religion, specifically the death penalty for apostasy from Islam and non-recognition of conversions to Christianity?  I doubt it.
  2. Does that include the freedom to be totally secular, or atheist?  Does that include the right to change one’s religion from Islam to another faith?  Yeah, right.
  3. Do they really condemn the Qur’anic denunciation of Jews and Christians as the worst of living creatures and its cursing of them?  Do they really condemn its declaration of perpetual war against them?  Yeah, right.
  4. Do they really deplore the burning of churches in Kenya, Indonesia and Pakistan? Do they really deplore the mass murder of Christians and Ahmadia?
  5. It is obvious that the reference is to the Motoons and  moves to ban minarets, the hijab & niqab.
  6. And I have some beach front land to sell you in Arizona.
  7. Of course the Pact of Umar met all those criteria.  Yeah, right. Try to build a church in Egypt.
  8. The authors deserve to go to Hell.  Any delegates voting for it should go with them.  It is not possible to express my contempt & detestation for them in polite terms.
  • “important role of media: self censorship”: The HRC is demanding that the press, broadcast media and bloggers not publish anything negative about Moe’s War Cult.
  • “promotion of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity”:  The idea of promoting respect & tolerance for a War Cult responsible for 270*106 premature deaths in the last 1387 years is unconscionable.  Nobody with a scintilla of morality would suggest it.  No self respecting lover of liberty who knows about the doctrines & practices of Islam will accept it.

This blog post would be illegal in several  nations as it is.  Recent Combating Defamation Resolutions passed by the HRC & General Assembly would specifically outlaw the last item in the unordered list immediately above.

At the end of November, the Ad Hoc Committee on Elaboration of Complementary Standards is scheduled to meet for the purpose of drafting a protocol to ICERD would enshrine their censorship demands in  binding international law.

Islam has declared and is prosecuting war against us. We need to be free to identify and accurately describe the enemy.  Islam is striving to criminalize that which is essential to our self-defense,   We must counter attack; there is only one way to do it.  ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG contain provisions which, enforced, would require that Islam be proscribed by law.

We must make the world, particularly the World Court, painfully aware of those provisions of international human rights law and the Islamic doctrines which violate them.  The International Qur’an Petition is our best weapon.  We must use it!  For the love of liberty, sign that petition, send its url to everyone you can influence, with an exhortation to sign and forward it.
