Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Ad Hoc Cmte: War on Free Speech


The UN’s war on freedom of expression is waged in
two parallel plains: resolutions and international covenants.  The
former have no enforcement mechanism; the latter have the force of
international law binding on signatories.   On the covenant plain,
the weapon is the Ad Hoc Cmte. and the mechanism is ICERD.  The
OIC
and its allies seek to insert Islam’s blasphemy laws into ICERD through
a binding protocol which would establish new norms criminalizing
criticism of Islam.

This plain of conflict is under reported and little
known.  the action takes place below the radar. Unfortunately, it
is the most dangerous to our cherished liberty because its outcome will
have the force of international law.

The committee holds two ten day sessions each
year.  Those sessions
have been marked by conflict which has resulted in narrowing the scope
of its deliberations, excluding Islamophobia.  This resolution is
an
expression of frustration and demand for results.

Once ICERD is amended to criminalize criticism of
Islam, the
creators of Fitna, Innocence of Muslims and the Motoons could be
persecuted in national and international courts and sentenced to prison
or death.

The HRC and GA resolutions give immoral support to
national
blasphemy laws used to persecute indigenous Christians in Indonesia
& Pakistan, but they have no teeth. The mission of the Ad Hoc
Committee has venomous fangs.

2lStSession of the Human Rights Council

Agenda Item 9

Elaboration of international complementary standards to the
lnternational

Convention on the Elimination
of All Forms of Racial Discrimination

 

Recalling its decision 31103 of 8
December 2006, in which it decided to establish, in accordance

with the provisions of paragraph 199 of the Durban Declaration and
Programme of Action, the

Ad Hoc Committee of the Human Rights Council on the Elaboration of
Complementary

Standards, with a mandate to elaborate, as a matter of priority and
necessity, complementary

standards in the form of either a convention or additional protocol(s)
to the lnternational

Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination,
filling the existing gaps in

the Convention and also providing
new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of


contemporary racism, including
incitement to racial and religious hatred
,(NHRCiResll0;30)

normative standards

The best way to translate this code phrase is to
provide examples from Shari’ah: Reliance of the Traveller, O8.7, which
lists 20 acts entailing apostasy, which carries the death
penalty.  The provisions of O8.7 are applied to dhimmis through O11.10

-5- or mentions
something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet
(Allah bless
him and give him peace), or
Islam
.

What is impermissible?

-4- to
revile Allah or His messenger
(Allah bless him and give him
peace);

-5- to
deny the existence of Allah,
His beginingless eternality, His
endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the
consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

-6- to
be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His
promise, or His threat
;

-7- to
deny any verse of the Koran
or anything which by scholarly
consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong
to it;

-16- to
revile the religion of Islam
;

incitement to racial and religious hatred

Translation of this code phrase is best accomplished
by reference to a concrete example: Fitna,
the short video by Geert Wilders which juxtaposed verses from the
Qur’an & hadith with the rabid rants of Imams and their violent
consequences.     Fitna exposed incitement, it did not
incite.  Observe what the Secretary General of the UN said about
it.

Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban
Ki-moon about Fitna:“There is no justification for hate
speech or incitement to
violence
,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not
at stake here.”

Ban’s spokesman used similar terms to describe Innocence
of Muslims
:

He
condemns the
hateful film that appears to have been deliberately designed to sow
bigotry and bloodshed.

The clear intention is to criminalize all criticism
of Islam.  The condemned videos do not incite violence, they
expose incitement.  Linking Islam to incitement to violence
constitutes reviling Islam, which carries the death penalty.  By
that standard, I could be persecuted, fined and imprisoned for exposing
the fact that the practice of Islam entails violence and terrorism,
like this:

Islam is inseverable, 2:85 condemns selectivity; Muslims must accept the
entire package, including genocidal, terrorist conquest.
Religious violence & terrorism are incited in the Qur’an (3:151, 8:12, 39, 57, 59, 60, 65, 67, 9:5, 29, 111, 120, 123, 33:26, 47:4, 49:1559:2, 59:13 & 61:10), in hadith (Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387, 4.52.177, 1.7.331 & 4.52.220, Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2635, 23.3455 & 14.2497), and Shari’ah (Reliance of the Traveller:
O9.0-9 & Hedaya Vol. 2, pg 140-230).

Under the standards demanded by the OIC, Arab
League, Non-Aligned Group and European Union, this blog post would be
illegal because of the proceeding paragraph.

Underlining the imperative need for the
Ad Hoc Committee to achieve its mandate (NHRCI

13118 updated)

I. Decides that the Ad Hoc
Committee shall convene its fifth session from 13 to 24 May


2013; (AIHRCI 13118

Discrimination,

2. Invites the Chairperson-Rapporteur of the Ad Hoc Committee to

hold informal consultations, within existing resources, with
regional and

political coordinators during the inter-sessional period between the

discussion on the topics of xenophobia, establishment, designation or

maintaining of national mechanisms with competencies to protect against
and

prevent all forms &-and manifestations of racism, racial
discrimination,

xenophobia and related intolerance; and procedural gaps with regard to

the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial

Racism and Related Intolerance: Free Speech Endangered!


http://www.eyeontheun.org/assets/attachments/documents/10563from_rhetoric….pdf

21” SESSION OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS
COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM 9

211 … From rhetoric to reality: a global call for concrete action
against racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and related
intolerance

racism

 

related intolerance

The
following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional
Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference

[Emphasis added.]

4.  Emphasizes the urgent need to
address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia
as contemporary
forms of racism

as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and
discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish,
Muslim and other communities;

These terms, when used in UN resolutions, imply Islamophobia.
They are used to condemn and criminalize all criticism of Islam, Allah,
Moe and their doctrines & practices.

Alarmed by the use of
the internet and
social media
by extremist
groups
and individuals_     _

to disseminate racist ideas
and propagate racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and


related intolerance,
(NEW, Paragraph 12 of Report AIHRCl20138)

 

extremist groups

This is a code phrase for EDL, Velams Belang,
Freedom Party, Tea Party, etc. It is a smear: an attempt to link
defenders of liberty with Nazism & Fascism.

Deploring the use of the print,
audio-visual and electronic media including the Internet,

and any other means to incite
acts of national, racial or religious violence
, xenophobia or

related intolerance and
discrimination against any
religion
, as well as the targeting of

religious symbols and venerated
persons
(AIHRCIResolution 10122, updated)

 

incite acts of religious violence

Religious violence is incited in the Qur’an (3:151, 8:12, 39, 57, 59, 60, 65, 67, 9:5, 29, 111, 120, 123, 47:4, 49:15 & 61:10), in hadith (Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387, 4.52.177, Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2635, 23.3455 & 14.2497), and Shari’ah (Reliance of the Traveller:
O9.0-9, Hedaya Vol. 2, pg 140-230). Muslims riot because of rabid kutbah in
the mosques and mass media, not because of cartoons such as the Motoons or videos such as Fitna
& Innocence
of Muslims
.  Those videos do not incite, they expose
incitement.

any religion

Islam! That is all the OIC and their dhimmis are
interested in.

religious symbols

The Qur’an.

venerated persons

Allah & Moe.

4. Recalls that preventing and
combating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and

related intolerance is a primary responsibility of States, and in this
regard,

recommends:

(a) That States should develop and implement national action plans to combat

racism and racial
discrimination, and to promote diversity, equality, equity,

social justice, equality of opportunity and participation of all. These
plans

should aim at creating conditions for all to participate effectively in
decisionmaking

and realize civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights in
all

spheres of life on the basis of non-discrimination, (NEW, based on
paragraphs

50, 51 & 56 (a) of Report AIHRC120133)

action plans to combat racism

They are demanding national legislation to
criminalize criticism of Islam and prohibit “profiling”.

6. Reiterates, particularly
considering contemporary challenges in this area, the primacy      

of elaborating additional
protocols to the International Convention on the Elimination


of All ~orms-of Racial
~iscrimination
, filling both procedural and substantive gaps

with a view to maximum protection, adequate remedies and combating
impunity for

no-recurrence.(NEW)

protocols to ICERD

There is an Ad Hoc Committee for this purpose, which
meets again in May of 2013. Its deliberations have been stalled on both
procedural and substantive issues.  Its mission is to code binding
protocols which, when signed, will be legally binding and
enforcible.

substantive gaps

This is a code phrase for the lack of provisions
criminalizing criticism of Islam.  They want the guts of the old
defamation resolutions injected into ICERD so that they can be enforced
in court.
