Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Obligation to Prohibit Violence Based On Religion


A/C.3/68/L.48 Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping,stigmatization, discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against persons, based on religion or belief continues with reaffirmation of another accursed lie.

Reaffirming also the obligation of States to prohibit discrimination and
violence on the basis of religion or belief and to implement measures to guarantee
the equal and effective protection of the law,

Are Egypt, Pakistan and Indonesia obligated to prohibit and punish violence against Christians and their churches based on the victim’s status of not being Muslims?  Who gives a damn about such an obligation? Who enforces it?

Instead, Muslims implement Allah’s Jihad imperative, expressed in Surah At-Taubah 9.123, secondary to 9.29,  to wage war neighboring Jews and Christians.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).

Who do Muslims obey: the United Nations which can not enforce its edicts, or Allah who will damn them to eternal Hellfire for not waging war?

Combatting intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization


The 2013 edition of “Combating Defamation of Islam” is entitled:  “Combatting intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization“. The new resolution
incorporates the boilerplate of previous resolutions reaching back to
the Durban Declaration and Plan of Action by reference. Those wishing
to read the entire pile of drek can find it here:  http://www.humanrightsvoices.org/site/developments/?d=11282

This resolution contains one boilerplate paragraph
which warrants detailed deliaring; I intend to concentrate on that
paragraph. [Emphasis added.] [For a point by point dissection of the other malignant malarkey in the resulution, refer to this post which dissected last year’s resolution.]

Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms
and manifestations cannot
and should not be associated with any religion, nationality,
civilization or ethnic group, (UNGA resolution 67/178, pp7)

Associated?

    Death &
Damnation!!!Terrorism is an
intrinsic sacrament of Islam!! Who in
Hell associated terrorism with Islam???

 

Allah!

How did Allah associate Islam & terrorism?
Directly & explicitly in the Qur’an! [Translated by Hilali &
Khan unless otherwise noted,]

  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts
    of those who disbelieve
    , because they joined others in worship
    with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the
    Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and
    wrong­doers).
  • 3:152. And Allâh did indeed fulfil His Promise
    to you when you were killing them
    (your enemy) with His
    Permission; until (the moment) you lost your courage and fell to
    disputing about the order, and disobeyed after He showed you (of the
    booty) which you love. Among you are some that desire this world and
    some that desire the Hereafter. Then He made you flee from them (your
    enemy), that He might test you. But surely, He forgave you, and Allâh
    is Most Gracious to the believers.

    • Allah next conveys the good news that He
      will put fear of the Muslims, and feelings of subordination to the
      Muslims in the hearts of their disbelieving enemies
      , because of
      their Kufr and Shirk. And Allah has prepared torment and punishment for
      them in the Hereafter. http://www.islam-universe.com/tafsir//3.9541.html
  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the
    angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast
    terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved
    , so strike them over the necks, and smite over
    all their fingers and toes
    .”

  • 8:57.  If thou comest on them in the war,
    deal with them so as to strike fear
    in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember. [Pickthall]

  • 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the
    utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror
    into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others
    besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye
    shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall
    not be treated unjustly. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]

  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture
    who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought
    them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts
    ,
    (so that) a
    group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captive
    s.
  • 33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands,
    and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not
    trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers
    among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî
    An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think
    that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would
    defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place
    whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror
    into their hearts
    , so that they destroyed their own dwellings
    with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take
    admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

  • 59:13. Verily, you
    (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a
    fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh
    . That
    is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power
    of Allâh).

Moe!

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given
    to any one else before me.

    1. Allah
    made me victorious by awe
    , (by His frightening my enemies) for a
    distance of one month’s journey.

    2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for
    praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my
    followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

    3. The booty
    has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone
    else before me.

    4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of
    Resurrection).

    5. Every Prophet used to be sent to
    his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
    shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror
    (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while
    I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to
    me and put in my hand.
    ” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has
    left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures
    (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Casting Terror

Allah, in his Qur’an, said that he would and did
cast terror into the hearts of disbelievers. Moe said that Allah made
him victorious through terror.  How did Allah cast terror?
Lets look a little deeper below the surface.

On page 326 of The Life of Muhammad, Ishaq summarizes
NQ8:57 & 60 thusly:

‘If you come upon them in war, deal
with them so forcibly as to
terrify
those who follow them, haply they may take warning,’ i.e.. make a severe

warning of them to those that come after, that haply they may
understand.

‘And prepare what you can against them, and cavalry by which

you may strike tenor
,”to the enemy of God and your enemy, as far as HIS

words. ‘And whatever you spend in the way of God will hc repaid to you:

you will not be wronged; 1.e. you will not lose your reward which God in

the next life and a rapid recompense in this world.

Allah told Moe to threaten his victims with the strongest possible army
and rough them up enough to terrify prospective victims.

Readers who are aware of current events will recall incidents of
Muslims taunting Jews with cries of  “Khaybar”, one of Moe’s
brutal genocidal conquests,. The practical application of 8:57 is
exemplified by Khaybar’s effect on Fadak, which is revealed on page 523 of The Life of Muhammad.

When the apostle had finished with
Khaybar. God struck terror to
the


hearts of the men of Fadak
when they heard what the had done tothe men of Khaybar . They sent to him an offer of peace on condition
that

they should keep half of their produce. Their messengers came to him in

Khaybar or an the road or after he came to Medina, and he accepted fheir

terms.Thus Fadak became his private property.because it had not been

attacked by horse or camel.’

Kab Ashraf was the chief of a Jewish settlement and
a poet who had mocked Moe, who commissioned his assassination.
The story of the assassination and its effect are told on page 368 of The Life of Muhammad.

Our attack upon
God’s enemy cast terror among the Jews
, and there was no Jcw in
Medina who did not fear far his rife.”

Asma bint Marwan was a poet  who mocked Moe and
complained bitterly of his murders upon which he had her killed. The
story is told on page 676 of The Life of Muhammad. Her murder, like
that of Ashraf, had the intended effect:

The day after Bmt Marwan was klled the
men of B. Khatma.  became Muslims
bcuuse they saw the power of Idam
.

Assassination & genocide were not the only
methods of casting terror; Moe’s companions also destroyed date trees
with the same objective in mind.  Turn to the commentary of
Muhammad Shafi in the Mariful Qur’an for the details:  page 374 of Volume 8. .

The reference in the verse is to the
cutting, by the orders of the Holy Prophet , of thepalm trees of Banii Nadir who had shut themselves in their fortresses in

defiance of the Holy Prophet’s orders to surrender. So, some of the
blessed

Companions, in
order to anger them or cast terror into their hearts
, cut

and burned down some of their date trees.

The OIC and their dhimmis demand that UN member
states criminalize revelation of the fact that terrorism is an
intrinsic sacrament of Islam. Allah said that he would cast terror and
subsequently described the effects of casting terror: genocide,
enslavement, dispossession & dispersion.  Moe bragged about
being made victorious with terror but we should be fined, imprisoned or
executed for telling you about their demonic ideology and deeds.

When we declare that Allah is Satan, we are not
stereotyping Muslims; we are stating the obvious: the deity they
worship is demonic.  When we declare that Moe was a barbaric,
genocidal, profiteer, murderer, lecher & child molester, we are
stating the obvious, not stereotyping Muslims.  Every Muslim who
does not want to be known as a demon worshiper and terrorist emulator
need only apostatize, disassociating themselves from the demon and his
profiteer.

Freemen who wish to remain free and live in peace
and security need to rise up as one disrespectfully demanding that
effective action be taken to remove Islam from the face of the
earth.  I exhort citizens of the USA to sign this on line petition
which will email itself to your Representative & Senators.

The annual UN resolutions passed by the HRC & GA
have no legal force but international human rights covenants such as
ICERD can be enforced against signatory member states. An ad hoc
committee of the HRC meets for ten days twice each year to craft a
binding protocol to inject the resolutions into ICERD so that they can
be enforced
.  Few people know about this parallel track and
nobody
is doing anything to derail it.

A good offense is the best defense, so we must
disrespectfully demand that Islam be outlawed for its egregious
violations of ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG.

The Big Lie: Terrorism Cannot be Associated With Islam


Two draft resolutions currently under debate in the U.N. General
Assembly’s Third Committee share boiler plate reaffirming an accursed lie.
This post ignores the rest of the resolution text to concentrate on
refuting the big lie.

While pretending to combat intolerance  &
violence based on religion and promote freedom of religion or belief,
these resolutions actually militate against freedom of religion,
promote violence and ignore the fact that tolerance becomes an evil
when applied to evil.

Reaffirming  that terrorism

religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group,

Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam.
Allah commands and exemplifies casting terror.  Muhammad
deliberately built a reputation for barbarian rapine so as to
intimidate prospective victims so that they would surrender without
resistance.

The authors and sponsors of these resolutions seek
to criminalize criticism of Islam.   They want to be able to
persecute and torture me for uttering and publishing the fatal facts
found in this blog post.

Who Associated Islam with Terrorism?

Allah

Surah Al-Imran

3:151. We shall cast terror
into the hearts of those who disbelieve
,
because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent
no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of
the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

Muslims, and feelings of subordination to the Muslims

hearts of their disbelieving enemies, because of their Kufr and Shirk.
“…

Surah Al-Anfal

8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the
angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror

strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes
.”

Tafsir Ibn Abbas(I will throw) cast

(pbuh) and his Companions.
(

 

8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war,
punish them
severely in order to disperse those who are behind them
, so that
they may learn a
lesson.

 Striking Hard against Those Who disbelieve and
break the Covenants

and inflicting casualties on them. This way, other enemies, Arabs and
non-Arabs, will be afraid and take a lesson from their end, …

etc.) to threaten

whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of
Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture

forts and cast
terror into their hearts
, (so that) a group (of them) you

.

33:27. And He caused
you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches
,
and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do
all things.

Read The Campaign against Banu Qurayzah
in Tafsir Ibn Kathir to see the convergence of 8:57 & 59:2 and to
discover the identities of the group that was killed and the group that
was taken captive.  Moe slaughtered the men and adolescent boys
who had surrendered after a long siege.

Surah Al-Hashr

59:2.
He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the
Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their
homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get
out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from
Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they
expected it not, and He cast terror into
their hearts
, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with
their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O
you with eyes
(to see).

59:13. Verily, you (believers in
the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear
in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts
than Allâh. That is
because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of
Allâh).

 

Muhammad

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given
to any one else before me.

1. Allah
made me victorious by awe
, (by His frightening my enemies) for a
distance of one month’s journey.

2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for
praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my
followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

3. The booty
has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone
else before me.

4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of
Resurrection).

5. Every Prophet used to be sent to
his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I
have been made victorious with terror
(cast in the hearts of the
enemy), and while I was sleeping, the
keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my
hand.
” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and
now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did
not benefit by them).

How did Allah cast terror?

Maulana Mufti Muhammad Shafi, commenting
on 59:2, in the Mariful Qur’an
, says that Moe’s companions were the
agency of terror, by cutting and burning date trees.

  • So, some
    of the blessed Companions
    , in order to anger them or cast terror
    into their hearts
    , cut
     and
    burned down some of their date trees
    .

He
also cast terror by murder and genocide.  Guillaume’s translation
of Hishham’s Rescension of Sirat Rasul Alah [The
Life of Muhammad
] provides more details of a disturbing
nature.  You really should go to Amazon and purchase a copy to
read.  8:57 & 60get
clarified on page 326.

‘If
you come upon them in war, deal with them so forcibly as to terrify

those
who follow them
, haply they may take warning,’ i.e. make a severe

example of them to those that come after, that haply they may
understand.

‘And prepare what strength you can against them, and cavalry by which

you
may strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy
‘ as far
as His

words, ‘And whatever you spend in the way of God will be repaid to you:

you will not be wronged,’ i.e. you will not lose your reward with God in

the next life and a rapid recompense in this world.



Moe,
sensitive to the fact that he was a false prophet acting out of
mercenary motives, routinely had critics murdered Ka’b Ibn ai-Ashraf
was one of them; the story of his murder is in Sahih
Muslim 19.4436
.
The Sira adds a clarifying detail which tells us more about by what
mechanism Allah cast terror.  This brilliant little gem is found
on page 368.

Our
attack upon God’s enemy cast terror 
among
the Jews, and there was no Jew in
Medina


who
did not fear for his life.

The
assassination of Ka’b Ibn ai-Ashraf terrorized the Jews of Medina so
they all feared impending murder.   Asma bint Marwan was
enraged by Ka’b’s murder and recited critical poetry for which Moe had
her assassinated too.  The following gem of revelation is found on
page 676.

The
day after Bint Marwan was killed the men of B.

Khatma became Muslims because they
saw the power of Islam
.

A
tribe, terrified by her assassination, converted to Islam rather than
defend themselves.  The raid on the Khaibar Oasis had a similar
effect, illustrative of 8:57 which confirms how Allah cast
terror.  This gem of revelation is found on page 523.

When
the apostle had finished
with Khaybar, God struck terror to the


hearts
of the men of Fadak
 when they
heard what the apostle had done to


the
men of Khaybar.
 They
sent to him an offer of peace on condition that

they should keep half of their produce. Their messengers came to him in

Khaybar or on the road or after he came to Medina, and he accepted their

terms. Thus Fadak became his private property, because it had not been 

attacked by horse or camel.



Further elaboration & confirmation is found in
the story of the conquest of B. Qurayza on page 461.

The
apostle passed by a number of his companions in al-Saurayn before

he got to B. Qurayza and asked if anyone had passed them. They replied 

that Dihya b. Khalifa al-Kalbi had passed upon a white mule with a
saddle

covered with a piece of brocade. He said, ‘That was Gabriel
who has been


sent
to B. Qurayza to shake their castles and strike terror to their hearts
.’



Yeah, right, they saw an angel riding a mule.
But there is more and more realistic on the same page.

The
apostle besieged
the B. Qurayza for twenty-five nights until they were sore


pressed
and God cast terror into their hearts.



Then Moe enslaved the women and children, slaughtering the men and
adolescent boys as a terrifying example for other intended victims. Its
in 33:26-27
and on page 468.

‘And he cast
terror
 into their

hearts; some you slew and some you captured,’ i.e. he killed
the men and


captured
the women and children
. ‘And caused you to inherit their land

and their dwellings, and their property, and a land you had not trod,’
i.e.

Khaybar. ‘For Allah can do all things.’

OIC Abandons UN Push for Blasphemy Laws: In A Pig’s Anus!


 

Atlas Shrugs is claiming victory.  [Emphasis added.]

The
OIC has relentlessly pursued resolutions on restrictions on free speech
for decades. So their caving on this is astounding. This is a testament
to the work of vocal counter-jihadists in the West. When people began
to understand that it was not about “insulting” or “offensive” speech
but really about imposing the blasphemy laws under the sharia,
freedom-loving peoples were not having it. Not. at. all. I believe the
ummah will continue to agitate for free speech restrictions in the
streets and in smoky rooms behind closed doors of the EU and other
world bodies. And we see the media and political hacks already
self-enforcing the sharia without these proposed resolutions. But even so, this is a major
victory
. Savor it.

And
let the educating begin!

Freedom House welcomes the OIC’s decision to
abandon the push for UN resolutions condemning defamation of
Islam.

Freedom
House welcomes several recent statements by representatives of the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) affirming that the group will no
longer support the problematic concept of “
defamation
of religions
despite growing pressure
from some Muslim countries to pursue a global ban on blasphemy or
religious insult.

Human Rights First is on the same bandwagon.

Human
Rights First today welcomed the statement by Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu,
secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC),
affirming the 57-member organization will not seek a global ban on
blasphemy or defaming religion through the United Nations
.

 

Skatta!

The claim of abandonment of pursuing the defamation
meme at the UN is lower than camel dung in the desert!  The
defamation meme, international blasphemy laws and promoting them
through the United Nations have not been abandoned; they continue on a
parallel track, below the radar.

So, they won’t push for new UN. resolutions;
big deal.  They are pushing for a binding protocol to ICERD which
will inject Islamic blasphemy law into an international human rights
covenant, making it enforceable in court.  An ad hoc committee of
the Human Rights Council meets for two ten day sessions each year to
code the protocol.  Once that protocol is signed and ratified, you
can kiss the free speech clause goodbye forever.  All negative
commentary on Islam will be punishable by law.

For the benefit of those ignorant of the Ad Hoc
Committee on Elaboration of Complementary International Standards, I
have embedded a pdf file compiled from seven previous blog posts.
It is 80 pages long, with plenty of redundancy.  The most
important clauses have been highlighted to make it easier for you to
skim the documents for the important bits.

They bitched about the publication of The Prophet of Doom,
which accurately quotes Islam’s canon  to provide the context and
chronology lacking in the Qur’an.   They bitched about the
publication of Fitna, which accurately  exposes the cause
and effect relationship between the damnable doctrines enshrined in the
Qur’an & exemplified in the hadith with their consequences on the
street when kutbah at Jumah Salat rouses the rabble.  They bitched
about the Motoons which depict Moe as a terrorist.  He
said that he was  “made victorious by terror“, so he damn well was a
terrorist.  They demanded blockage of the publication of those
works and they demand the head of the creator of Innocence of Muslims, which accurately depicts Moe as a lecherous pedophile,
murderer, barbarian war lord and false prophet.   Ban
Ki-moon’s statement about Fitna, quoted in the pdf, tells us everything
we need to know about what they want to ban: everything that puts Islam
in a bad light.

Our freedom of speech is under attack, even though
the attackers appear to have withdrawn.  We need to defend our
liberty and a good offense is the best defense.  The International
Qur’an Petition has a three page pdf which documents Islam’s egregious
violation of ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG, which require it to be
proscribed by law.  When you sign that petition, it sends emails
to Congress, including a link to that pdf document.

Human Rights First Steps in It: Combatting intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization


Is Human Rights First guilty of stupidity or treachery?  You be
the judge.  UN Reaffirms Commitment to End Religious Intolerance Without Limiting
Expression

New
York City
 – Human Rights First today
praises member states of the United Nations Human Rights Council
(UNHRC) for adopting resolution text on 
fighting
religious intolerance
 text that omits reference to the
controversial notion of “defamation of religions.”

omits reference

So, “defamation of religions” does not appear in the
text; exactly what difference does that make?  The resolution
contains effective substitutes with the same essential meaning.

The tactic is semantic deflection: instead of
condemning and urging criminalization of “defamation of Islam”, the
boiler plate from HRC RES 16/18 switches the focus to “denigration and
negative religious stereotyping of persons” & “incitement to
religious hatred”.

defamation of Islam

Terrorism
is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam
. Since Islam
is inseverable
, and the practice of terrorism is commanded by Allah
in Surah Al-Anfal 57
& 60,
every Muslim is a potential terrorist.  The Muslim who takes “any
step” to “injure or enrage” disbeliever
s is rewarded with extra
credit towards an upgrade in Allah’s Celestial Bordello.  The Muslim who
shirks Jihad is threatened with eternal damnation.

negative stereotyping

The irrefutable fact presented in the previous
paragraph is not defamatory because it is true and easily verifiable.
But the statement: “Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam”,
stereotypes all Muslims as potential terrorists, which, in fact they
are.  Muslims are commanded to obey
Allah and Muhammad
.   Muslims are commanded
to emulate Muhammad
, who was “made victorious with
terror
“.

Is truth a defense against accusation of “negative
stereotyping”?   The Motoons, Fitna and this blog post could
as easily be proscribed on the basis of “negative stereotyping” as
“defamation of Islam”.

end religious intolerance

Here are some prime examples of intolerance; I
challenge Human Rights First, other NGOs, the Department of State, the
Human Rights Council & the OIC to demonstrate exactly how the
resolution will end the Islamic intolerance exemplified in the Qur’an.

  • 1:6. Guide us to the Straight Way

    1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those
    who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray
    (such as the Christians).  

  • 2:161. Verily, those who disbelieve,
    and die while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of
    Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined.

  • 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other
    than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him
    , and in the
    Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

  • 3:110. You [true
    believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet
    Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples
    ever raised up for mankind
    ; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic
    Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar
    (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you
    believe in Allâh. And had the people of the
    Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for
    them
    ; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are
    Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh – and rebellious against Allâh’s
    Command).

    3:111. They will
    do you no harm
    , barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight
    against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be
    helped.

    3:112. Indignity
    is put over them wherever they may be,
    except when under a
    covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on
    themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over
    them
    . This is because they disbelieved
    in the Ayât
    (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs,
    revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This
    is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds
    (in Allâh’s disobedience, crimes and sins).

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    The Verse:–“You (true Muslims)
    are the best of
    peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the
    people, as you bring them
    with chains on
    their necks till they embrace Islam
    .

  • 98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve
    (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ()) from among the people of
    the Scripture
    (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire
    of Hell.
    They
    are the worst of creatures
    .

Where Allah’s writ runs, such as Egypt, Indonesia
& Nigeria, Muslims destroy Christian’s property and murder them
with impunity.  What makes any fool believe that the new
resolutions will be enforced against those guilty of rioting &
murder?  They will only be enforced against those of us who expose
the intrinsic evil of Islam.

without limiting expression

    Adopting measures to
criminalize
incitement to imminent violence
based on religion or belief;

What, exactly is the meaning of “incitement to
imminent violence”? Exactly what can be proscribed without regard for
freedom of expression?  The answer to these questions is contained
in the official response to the publication of Geert Wilders’ short
documentary.

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
.”

Exposing the causal relationship between the
doctrines enshrined in Islam’s canon of scripture & tradition
to Islamic terrorism, jihad & rioting is hate speech &
incitement not covered by the right of free expression according to the
Secretary General.

Istanbul Process: Censorship Through Subterfuge


Istanbul Process: Censorship Through Subterfuge

The
fall session of the Istanbul Process has concluded; while we await
publication of their report we can reflect on the manifold deceptions
which passed the lips of two participants.  I have selected the
most important phrases out of context for criticism.

It is not possible to advance respect for religious
freedom & tolerance where Allah’s writ runs. There is neither
tolerance nor respect for religions other than Islam in Egypt, Saudi
Arabia and other nations dominated by Islam.  The positive
attitudes desired by Amb. Cook do not  and can not exist there
because of the doctrines of Islam.

  • Non-Muslims are cursed.
    • 2:161.
      Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it
      is they on whom is the Curse
      of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined
      .
    • 3:12.
      Say (O Muhammad ) to those who disbelieve: “You will be defeated and gathered
      together to Hell
      , and worst indeed is that place to rest.”
    • 9:30.
      And the Jews say:
      ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah
      is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate
      the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how
      they are deluded away from the truth!
  • Only Islam is accepted.
    • 3:19.
      Truly, the religion with Allâh
      is Islâm
      .
      Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ
      except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And
      whoever disbelieves in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, signs,
      revelations, etc.) of Allâh, then surely, Allâh is Swift in calling to
      account.
    • 3:85.
      And whoever seeks a religion
      other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him
      , and in the
      Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
  • Unbelief is a great evil under Shari’ah..
    • Unbelief is the vilest
      form of corruption
      , as goes without saying. [Reliance of the
      Traveller O24.2
    • Leaving Islam is the
      ugliest form of unbelief
      (kufr) and the worst. [08.0]
    • …a non-Muslim has no
      right to authority
      and hence no right to raise a Muslim. [M13.2]
      • false
        divide that pits religious sensitivities against freedom of expression

        [Quoting H.C.]

For the full quote, turn to page 35 of the April ’11 Islamophobia Report.
Hillary’s assertion is malignant. Islam demands that all criticism of
Islam be squelched, which is clear in the text of previous HRC & GA
resolutions “Combating Defamation of Religions“.

Reliance of the Traveller defines apostasy with a
list of twenty acts which entail leaving Islam [O8.7]
Those acts include reviling Allah, Muhammad or Islam and denial of any
Islamic law or doctrine.  The penalty for apostasy is execution,
specified in the second section of chapter 8. [O8.1]
The same rule and punishment are imposed upon conquered Jews &
Christians living in Dar ul-Islam as Dhimmis: -5- or mentions something impermissible
about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or
Islam. [O11.10]
The penalty imposed upon a Dhimmi who blasphemes is the same as he
would suffer when captured in battle, one of four choices by the Imam,
death being the first listed. [O9.14]

The OIC demanded prosecution of the publisher of the
Motoons and demanded that the Dutch government block the publication of
Fitna. After the publication, they demanded prosecution. Egypt is
demanding that publication of Wilders’ upcoming book be blocked.

      • Resolution
        16/18 secured an international consensus around an action-oriented
        approach to combat religious intolerance in line with respect for
        universal human rights—including religious freedom and freedom of
        expression.

“Respect for freedom of expression” yeah, right. The
following paragraph occurs on page two of the resolution:

Expresses deep concern at the continued
serious instances of derogatory

stereotyping, negative
profiling and stigmatization of persons based on their religion or

belief, as well as programmes
and agendas pursued by extremist organizations and groups


aimed at creating and
perpetuating negative stereotypes about religious groups
, in
particular

when condoned by Governments;

“Derogatory stereotyping ” & “negative stereotypes”  are
encrypted references to  associating Islam with
terrorism
.  Last year’s GA resolution expresses it this
way:

Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with
terrorism
, as this

may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom
of religion

or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;

Oh, but that meme has been abandoned, hasn’t it?  Yeah, right. Two
resolutions came out of the Third Committee in November, one based on
19/18 and

A/C.3/66/L.48/Rev.1 : “Elimination of all forms of
intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief”.

Also emphasizes that no religion should
be equated with terrorism, as this

may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom
of religion

or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;

Islam = terrorism because Allah said that he would
cast terror, did cast terror & Moe said that it made him
victorious.  I present to you relevant, verifiable proof from the
Qur’an, Tafsir Ibn Kathir & Sahih Bukhari, the most authentic of
the six canonical hadith collections.

  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those
    who disbelieve
  • 7:4.  How many a township have We
    destroyed! As a raid
    by night
    , or while they slept at noon, Our terror came unto them.
    • Our torment came upon them by
      night or while they were taking their midday nap. ) means, Allah’s
      command, torment and vengeance came over them at night or while taking
      a nap in the middle of the day. Both of these times are periods of rest
      and leisure or heedlessness and amusement.  Nations that were destroyed
  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the
    angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I
    will cast terror into the hearts of those
    who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all
    their fingers and toes.”
    • …(I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have
      disbelieved.)
      means, `you — angels — support the believers, strengthen their
      (battle) front against their enemies, thus, implementing My command to
      you. I will cast
      fear, disgrace and humiliation over those who defied My command and
      denied My Messenger
      ,
      (so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers
      and
      toes.) strike them on their foreheads to tear them apart and over the
      necks to cut them off, and cut off their limbs, hands and feet….Allah commands the Angels to fight and support the
      Believers
  • 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to
    the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into
    (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others
    besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye
    shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall
    not be treated unjustly.
  • 33:26. And those of the people of the
    Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down
    from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so
    that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made
    captives.
    • (and cast terror into their
      hearts
      😉 means fear, because they had
      supported the idolators in their war against the Messenger of Allah and
      the one who knows is not like the one who does not know. They had
      terrified the Muslims and intended to kill them so as to gain earthly
      power, but their plans backfired; the idolators ran away and the
      believers were victorious while the disbelievers were losers; where
      they had aimed for glory, they were humiliated. The Campaign against Banu Qurayzah
  • 59:2.
    He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the
    Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Bani An-Nadir) from their
    homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get
    out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from
    Allah! But Allah’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they
    expected it not, and He cast terror into
    their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own
    hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with
    eyes (to see).
    • …Therefore, Allah
      sent His torment down on them
      ;
      it can never be averted, and His appointed destiny touched them; it can
      never be resisted. The Prophet forced them to evacuate and abandon
      their fortified forts that Muslims did not think they would ever
      control. …Then take admonition, O you with eyes.) meaning,
      “Contemplate the end of those who defied Allah’s command, contradicted
      His Messenger and denied His Book. See how Allah’s humiliating torment
      struck them in this life, as well as, the painful torment that Allah
      has reserved for them in the Hereafter.”… The End that Bani An-Nadir suffered

  • 59:13. Of a truth ye are stronger (than they)
    because of the terror in their hearts, (sent) by
    God. This is because they are men devoid of understanding.
  • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in
    war, punish them
    severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they
    may learn a lesson
    .
    • …(then disperse those who are behind them,) by severely
      punishing
      ﴿the captured people﴾ according to Ibn `Abbas, Al-Hasan Al-Basri,
      Ad-Dahhak, As-Suddi, `Ata’ Al-Khurasani and Ibn `Uyaynah. This
      Ayah commands punishing them harshly and inflicting casualties on them.
      This way, other enemies, Arabs and non-Arabs, will be afraid and take a
      lesson from their end
      ,… Striking Hard against Those Who disbelieve and break
      the Covenants
  •  Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:

    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given
    to any one else before me.

    1. Allah made me
    victorious by 
    awe, (by His
    frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. .

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
    shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror(cast
    in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the
    treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.

    Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you,
    people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not
    benefit by them).

“Programs and agendas pursued by extremist
organizations” is an encrypted reference to the Dutch and Austrian
Freedom Parties and the American Tea Party.  They want to make the
Tea Party and negative expressions about Islam in campaign
advertisements illegal. If you doubt this, read the April ’11 Islamophobia Report, pages 3, 6 & 49

      • calls
        on states to take specific measures to combat religious intolerance

The call comes on page 2 of the resolution.

Expresses its concern that incidents of religious intolerance, discrimination

and related violence, as well as of negative stereotyping of
individuals on the basis of

religion or belief, continue to rise around the world, and condemns, in
this context, any

advocacy of religious hatred
against individuals that constitutes incitement to


discrimination, hostility or
violence
, and urges
States to take effective measures
, as set forth

in the present resolution, consistent
with their obligations under international human rights


law, to address and
combat such incidents;

  • incidents of
    • intolerance: Islamophobia
    • negative stereotyping: Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of
      Islam :. Muslims are terrorists.
    • avocacy of religious hatred
      • constitutes incitement
        • discrimination
        • hostility
        • violence: any & every criticism of Islam, exemplified
          by Fitna, the Motoons & Qur’an burning
  • effective measures:  legislation and its enforcement

Article 19

1. Everyone shall have the right to hold
opinions without interference

2.
Everyone shall have the right
to freedom of expression:
this right
shall include freedom to seek, receive, and impart information and
ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing
or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of this
choice

3.
The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and
responsibilities. It may therefore
be subject to certain restrictions
, but these shall only be such
as
provided by law and are necessary.

   (a) For respect of the rights
or reputations of others;

   (b) For the protection of
national security or of public
order
(ordre public), or of public
health or morals.

Article 20

1. Any propaganda for war shall be
prohibited by law

2.
Any advocacy of national,
racial or religious hatred that constitutes
incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited
by law.

Reservations:

       “(1)
That article 20 does
not authorize or require legislation or other action by the United
States that would restrict the
right of free speech
and association protected by the
Constitution and laws of the United States.

Several of the resolutions make allusion to  19.3, attempting to
stretch 19.3.a to cover Islam.  Note that the U.S.A. reserved our
First Amendment right of free expression.  Several resolutions
bitterly kvetch about that reservation, demanding its repeal. The HRC
has an Ad Hoc
Committee on Elaboration of Complementary Standards

whose mission is to write a binding protocol which will insert the
provisions of previous defamation of Islam resolutions into one of the
human rights covenants.

Define advocacy of hatred that constitutes
incitement. Exactly what does that expression in 20.2 mean in the real
world.  For the answer, we must turn to the Secretary General.

.

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
.”

According to Ban, the short documentary by Geert Wilders meets the test
of 20.2. There is one little problem: Fitna is an exposure of
incitement, it is not incitement.  I direct doubters &
dissenters to this blog post which documents Fitna’s scriptural
citations
: The intention of HRC 16/18 is to criminalize Fitna, the
Motoons, this
blog post and every criticism of Islam.

      • Those
        rights include the right to believe and the right practice a religion
        not sanctioned by the state — or no religion at all.

Who can argue with the right to belief &
practice of religion?  Islam does, and I can, too!  The
existence of a right to practice Islam is an impossibility because the
practice of Islam entails genocide, terror,plunder, extortion, &
rape. This fatal fact is fully documented here: 
No
Right to Practice Islam!

Allah said  that only he has the right to be
worshiped. Get a clue.

  • 3:2.
    Allâh! Lâ ilahâ illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He),
    the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that
    exists.
  • O11.5 -6- are forbidden to openly display
    wine or pork, (A: to ring
    church bells or display crosses
    ,) recite the Torah or Evangel aloud,
    or make public display of their
    funerals and feastdays;
      -7- and are forbidden to build new churches.

Islam does not accept the UDHR,
it substituted the Cairo Declaration,
which makes Shari’ah the bottom line. I just quoted the relevant
Shari’ah for you. Get a clue: scroll to the end of the declaration and
read Articles 24 & 25.  Its Shari’ah, stupid, refer to
Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 11.5, quoted above.
Freedom of religion is a one way street: for Muslims only.

      • This
        purpose is to advance religious freedom, promote religious tolerance,
        and combat discrimination on the basis of religion or belief—consistent
        with universal human rights principles.

The purpose is permanently frustrated because Islam does not and will
not allow religious freedom or  tolerate religions  and
discriminates against indigenous religious minorities.
Those flaws are intrinsic to the core of Islam and can not be altered
or removed because Islam can not be reformed.

  • protect
    religious minorities and protect freedom of expression

Indigenous Christians in Egypt & Pakistan will
be charged with blasphemy and persecuted, up to and including execution
for saying “Jesus is Lord.”. HRC 16/18 does nothing to change Shari’ah
nor its implementation in Islamic nations and that is not its
intention.  Its stated mission is to prevent and punish “negative
stereotyping”, which is substituted for “defamation of religions”,
which was substituted for “defamation of Islam”. A skunk by any other
name will smell as pungent.  The resolution reeks, likewise the
clever words with which it is being disguised & promoted, which are
redolent of feces.

      •  some
        people distort various religious doctrines to justify intolerance,
        foment violence, or create strife that serves their narrow political
        purposes

Islam’s mission is to enrich its founder & his
successors through the professional practice of war and
extortion.  I direct doubters & dissenters to a previous blog
post for the disgusting details: Islam’s Mercenary Mission.
Genocidal jihad which terrorizes its victims is an intrinsic sacrament
of Islam, not a radical innovation.  I direct doubters &
dissenters to a previous blog post which exposes the disgusting
details: What’s
Wrong With Islam/Muslims?
.

      • faith
        must never be a crime and religion must never be used as an excuse to
        stifle freedom of expression.

“Faith without works is dead.” and faith without
content is empty.  Faith ain’t the problem: doctrines are!
It is what they believe, not the fact that they believe. Faith produces
works; the works of Islam are genocidal conquest, rape, pillage &
extortion; this is why there can be No
Right to Practice Islam
.

The objective of HRC 16/18 and its successor
before the GA is to criminalize and punish the publication of the facts
contained in this blog post. The OIC tried to block the publication of
Fitna. They are trying to block the publication of a new book by Geert
Wilders. They demanded that he be persecuted for Fitna.

  • Remarks at the Istanbul Process for Combating Intolerance and
    Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief

Hillary just told us that there is a right kill,
enslave, rape, plunder and extort disbelievers. Does she also
believe that there is a right to free expression? What did she say
about International Burn the Qur’an Day?  Did she uphold Rev.
Jones’ right to express his disdain for the damnable doctrines of Islam
by burning a Qur’an?  No, she condemned the planned event,
labeling it as hate speech and inciting violence, the same terms she
used to condemn the trial & burning of the Qur’an last March.

      • this
        resolution marks a step forward in creating a safe global environment
        for practicing and expressing one’s beliefs
      • In
        it, we pledge to protect the freedom of religion for all while also
        protecting freedom of expression.

There is no step toward religious freedom short of
eradicating Islam. Does Hillary plan to send the Marines to protect
Copts in Egypt?  No resolution will protect them!  Only
overwhelming force will prevent Muslims from killing members of
Christian minorities in Africa, Arabia & Asia.  Nobody
proposes to assemble and apply that force.

Islam can only be eradicated by inducing mass
apostasy.  Mass apostasy can only be induced by exposing the Ummah
to the glaring reality of the identity and attributes of Allah, the
character and works of Moe and the horrific crimes against humanity
perpetrated in Allah’s name over the last 14 centuries.

Previous resolutions demanded criminalizing
association of Islam with terrorism, an intrinsic sacrament of which
Moe bragged. Another resolution pending in the General Assembly demands
criminalizing equating Islam with terrorism.

      • born
        free to practice any religion, to change our religion, or to have none
        at all.

Open Reliance of the Traveller to Book O, Chapter 8
and start reading through 8.7; there is a link above. Who will go to
Pakistan and enforce the right to convert to Christianity?  Will
Hillary or Ban go?  Whom will they send; will they return alive
and whole from that mission?  You can not change the Qur’an &
sunnah on which O8.1 is based, so, exactly what will you do about it?

      • they
        are not rights bestowed by any government. They are rights endowed by
        our Creator within each of us. And therefore, we have a special
        obligation to protect these God-given rights.

Only the U.S. government has an obligation to
protect our rights.  Res. 16/18 is part of a campaign to
eviscerate our right to free speech. Hillary’s State department is
acting in contravention of the First Amendment.

      • restricting
        the practice of anyone’s faith is a threat to the human rights of all
        individuals.

Muslims believe that they have a divine right and religious
obligation
to conquer
the entire world
, by intimidation & force, including “casting
terror”. That right and obligation is inseverable; Islam
is all or nothing
. Muslims who believe “fight in Allah’s cause, killing
others and being killed
. Only
those who participate in jihad are believers
. Muslims are commanded
to obey Allah and Moe
.  Allah commanded them to “fight
the disbelievers nearest you
“.  Open Sahih Bukhari 52 to see what Moe did, which is to
be emulated.  Terrorism is an act of worship, intrinsic to the
practice of Islam; Muslims earn Brownie
Points for any step taken to injure or enrage
disbelievers.

Hillary just informed us that preventing Muslims
from engaging in terrorism is an infringement of their human right to
the free practice of religion. Muslims can not fully practice Islam
without it.

      • my
        ability to practice my religious faith freely does not, and indeed
        cannot, diminish yours

Your Methodism, Hillary, does not impair the
practice of Islam. A Muslim, practicing his religion can rape and kill
you as an act of worship.  Of course, that does not diminish your
rights at all, does it?

        can be such a powerful bond, but we also recognize that it can be
        misused to create conflict.

Creating conflict and perpetuating war are not
misuses of Islam, they are its mission.  Its jihad, stupid! The “original religion” of Islam is jihad and jihad is war against non-Muslims. Allah will curse
Muslims with disgrace if they abandon jihad for trade and
agriculture.

      • There
        are those who, for reasons actually having little to do with religion,
        seek to instill fear or contempt for those of another creed.

That is an obvious sideswipe at “Islamophobes”;
those of us who expose and warn others about the damnable doctrines
& practices of Islam.  Hillary implies that critics of Islam
are rousing the rabble to lynch Muslims.  If that was true, we
could and should be prosecuted.  In fact we are not, but far from
it.

      • So
        we believe that it is the duty of every government to ensure that
        individuals are not subject to violence, discrimination, or
        intimidation because of their faith or their lack of faith. 

The governments of Egypt, Pakistan and other Islam
dominated nations are active, willing participants in intimidation,
discrimination & persecution of indigenous Christian minorities and
turn a blind eye to Islamic violence.

      • At
        the same time, as we strive to protect individuals from violence and
        discrimination because of their religion or their beliefs, we must also
        express the freedom of expression.

Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of
Islam.  Muslims earn Brownie Points with each act of
terrorism.  9/11 was an act of worship.  The OIC seeks to
criminalize and punish the uttering and publishing of those fatal
facts.  The resolution they ran through the GA last year is clear
on that matter.  Res 16/18 focuses on incitement to hatred and
violence.  According to Ban Ki-Moon,  exposing the direct
connection between Islamic scripture, preaching and terrorism is hate
speech and incitement not protected by freedom of expression.  If
he had the power, Ban would prohibit the publication of this blog post.
The purpose of Res 16/18 is to con our government into doing it for
him.

      • Well,
        how would one know that you were being discriminated against if you
        didn’t have the right to freedom of expression?

The right of free expression is essential to
discussion of affairs of state; to political campaigns in
particular.  When we perceive a real, proximate and continuing
threat to our personal and national security, we must be free to warn
our fellow citizens.  When we are offended by the arrogant
exactions of enemy forces, we must be free to express our outrage and
contempt.  The resolution you seek to implement is designed to
eliminate our right to free speech.

      • So
        the freedom of religion and the freedom of expression are absolutely
        bound up together.

My right to warn of the damnable mission, doctrines
and practices of Islam does not, in any way impair anyone’s freedom of
religion.  If Muslims have a right to practice Islam, then all of
my rights are impaired.  The right to live and the right to
practice Islam can not coexist because Islam is a license to kill; a
declaration of open season in denial of the right to life and
property.  I direct doubters & dissenters to Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.

      • Now,
        there are those who have always seen a tension between these two
        freedoms, especially when one person’s speech seems to question someone
        else’s religious beliefs, 

Open Reliance of the Traveller, the Shafi’ite
handbook of fiqh which serves as the main codification of Shari’ah, to
BookO11.10 and learn that Dhimmis can be killed for
mentioning
anything “impermissible” about Allah, Moe or Islam.

      • or
        maybe even offends that person’s beliefs.

      • But
        the truth we have learned, through a lot of trial and error over more
        than 235 years in our country, is that we defend our beliefs best by
        defending free expression for everyone, and it lowers the temperature.
        It creates an environment in which you are free to exercise and to
        speak about your religion, whether your neighbor or someone across the
        town agrees with you or not.
      •  In
        fact, the appropriate answer to speech that offends is more speech.

Speech that offends: “fight them until”, “fight
those who …until”, “I am commanded to fight”, “I will cast terror”,
“Allah cast terror” so that “some you killed” and others you “made
captive”. I am offended by the Qur’an, hadith, Exegesis & Shari’ah!
I am offended by shouts of  “Allahu akbar!”.  I am offended
by the accursed abomination 9/11 and every Islamic act of
terrorism.

This blog post, the hundreds of similar posts which
preceded
it and those that will follow it are my response to intolerable
evil.  My disrespectful demand that Islam be outlawed, Muslims
expelled and excluded from the U.S.A. is my response to intolerable
evil.  My curse that I will not vote for any candidate for high
office who does not explicitly condemn Islam is my response to
intolerable evil.

      • It
        is hurtful when bigotry pollutes the public sphere, 

Informed and reasoned opposition to &
denunciation of Islam, based on the facts contained in its canon of
scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence is not bigotry. The
hallmarks of bigotry are ignorance and a closed mind.

      • but
        the state does not silence ideas, no matter how disagreeable they might
        be, 

You just confessed, in context of Res.16/18, that
exposure & condemnation of Islam are disagreeable to you and that
you consider them to be bigotry.  You also lied, because the
state, in seeking to implement 16/18, seeks to criminalize & punish
all criticism of Islam.  You have, in fact, adopted
the  agenda of the enemy: to silence our messages of warning and
dissent.

      • because
        we believe that in the end, the best way to treat offensive speech is
        by people either ignoring it or combating it with good arguments and
        good speech that overwhelms it.

My side has the facts, Hillary. It is not possible
to refute our condemnation of Islam because what we say is supported by
ample evidence found in Islam’s canon.  You can not refute the
facts outlined in this blog post. You can lie about them, spew
ad-hominem & Tu-quoque, but you can not prevail with fact and logic
because Islam is intrinsically evil, by design and incapable of
reformation.

      • So
        we do speak out and condemn hateful speech.

You condemned Pastor Jones when he sponsored
International Burn the Koran Day.  You condemned him when he tried
and executed the Qur’an last March. You and General Petraeus betrayed
us, blaming Jones for Muslim riots stirred up among rabid rabble by
rabid Imams at Jumah Salat.  Jones did not incite violence. Jones
did not engage in hate speech. Jones did not violate anyone’s
rights.  When you accused Jones of inciting violence, you did, in
fact, incite violence by encouraging Muslims to riot.  I call
treason when I see it.  You and Obama should be impeached,
convicted of treason and removed from office.

      •  In
        fact, we think it is our duty to do so,
      •  but
        we don’t ban it or criminalize it.

Res. 16/18 is a continuation of the string of
resolutions spawned by the OIC’s Ten year Plan.  Scroll down to Art. VI,
item 3 and read about it.  Read Ekmeleddin
Ihsanoglu’s speech to the HRC Session 15
and Amb. Akram’s statement
to Session 16, which is transcribed in this blog post.  When we read those two
screeds and the Islamophobia Reports,  the intent of the
resolution is unmistakably clear.

Fasten your seat belts, this is where the going gets
rough. Put away all fire, choke and spill hazards before you continue
reading.

      • Now,
        with Resolution 1618, we have clarified these dual objectives. 

Malignant malarkey!  You clarified nothing, you
obfuscated your intention to criminalize criticism of Islam. That is
kitman as well as al-Taqiyya.

      • We
        embrace the role that free expression plays in bolstering religious
        tolerance. 

No sentient person, informed of the damnable
doctrines & practices of Islam, will ever tolerate its existence!
Free expression does not bolster tolerance, it bolsters exposure and
awareness! You spoke of a one sided free expression, limited to false
praise of Islam, not extending to honest criticism.

      • We
        have agreed to build a culture of understanding and acceptance
        through 

Anyone who understands Islam will never accept it!

      • concrete
        measures to combat discrimination and violence,  

Only Islam and Muslims advocate violence; we
advocate laws to expel and exclude Islam’s fifth column for the purpose
of preventing violence. Do you allow rattlesnakes to reside in your
house? Excluding rattlesnakes is discriminatory.

      • such
        as education and outreach, and we are working together to achieve those
        objectives.

When a Muslim says “education” he means
indoctrination.  Nothing exposed in the links provided in this
blog post is included in instructional materials used in our
educational system, with the exception of some doctoral programs at
large universities.     Outreach translates to
appeasement.

      • it’s
        one thing if people are just disagreeing. That is fair game. That’s
        free speech. 

They say that “only Allah has the right to be
worshiped” and that I must convert or be killed. I say that I have a
right to worship or not as I blessed well see fit, without being
intimidated or coerced.  They assert a duty to attack us, I assert
a right to effective national defense. They say I must be silent, I say
that I have an absolute right to expose their evil doctrines &
practices.

      • But
        if it results in sectarian clashes,

Sunni & Shi’ia are rivals for power. Power
corrupts. Nothing can stop them form internecine conflict.

      •  if
        it results in the destruction or the defacement or the vandalization of
        religious sites, 

In Africa, Arabia, & Asia, Muslims burn down
churches, with Christians in them.  That results from what is
preached in their local mosques, not what we write in our blogs.
We do not incite vandalism, a few  idiots driven over the edge by
frustration act on their own free will, without anyone telling them to.

      • if
        it even results in imprisonment or death, 

The trial and execution of a Qur’an in Florida did
not result in death. Those deaths and property damage resulted from the
rabid preaching at Jumah Salat, not anything anyone said or did over
here.

      • then
        government must held those – hold those who are responsible accountable.

I’d like to see how you are going to hold Allah
& Moe responsible for riots & murders inspired by the Qur’an
& Sunnah. Allah is an impotent idol and Moe has been dead
since   Do you think you can go to Egypt & Pakistan to
arrest, try and incarcerate the rabid Imams who rouse the rabble to
riot?  I’d like to see you try it.

There is a difference between shouting fire in a
crowded theater where there is no fire or rousing a lynch mob and
burning a Qur’an.  Exposing the damnable doctrines of Islam in a
blog post does not kill anyone or destroy any property.  Property
is destroyed and people are killed by Muslims engaged in an act of
worship: terrorism.  They don’t get their incitement from us, they
get it from Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis &
jurisprudence and from their Imams.

      • But
        I have to say we have one difficulty in understanding all of the
        problems that we see around the world, and that is
      • that
        because religion is so personal and because it is something that we
        highly value in ourselves,

No, it ain’t and anybody smarter than a Moron can
see it after a little investigation. Ignorant & indolent Morons
like you project the western concept of religion onto Islam, which it
does not fit.  We view religion as a beneficent & anodyne
agency of theology & interpersonal relationships.  Religions
are our source of much of our morality & ethics.

Islam is presented and accepted by Muslims as the
absolute rule of Allah, which must be obeyed in all times, at all
places. It governs every facet of human life from conception through
burial.  It dictates how they eat, how they defecate and how they
wipe their butts. It also imposes upon them a demonic mandate to
conquer and subjugate the entire world.  Go to Amazon.com and get
a copy of Reliance of the Traveller or Volume II of hedaya and start
reading. You can learn much from the table of contents.

Islam is not a benign, anodyne & benevolent
theology, it is a continuing criminal enterprise; a war crime against
humanity motivated by filthy lucre: “The Spoils of War.
After reading the first verse, skip ahead to 41, then 60 & 67.  Turn next to 33:26-27 and  48:15-20.   Turn next to Sahih Muslim 19.4327Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220,  & 4.52.267.  If, after checking those
references, you can not correctly answer the following review
questions, its time to consider suicide to protect the gene pool.

  1. To whom do the spoils belong?
  2. Who gets the top 20%?
  3. What was Moe’s motivation?
  4. What is Allah’s motivation?
    [Hint: it ain’t getting Moe into his celestial bordello.]
  5. What was the net effect of casting terror?
  6. What did Allah promise Muslims?
  7. What is the legal status of taking spoils?
  8. What did Allah give Moe?
  9. How did Muslims invest the treasures of the Persian &
    Byzantine Empires?

 

      •  it
        strikes us as troubling that people are not confident in their
        religious beliefs

      • to
        the point where they do not fear speech that raises questions about
        religion.
         

Muslims are hypersensitive because their faith is
false.  The ruling class is in the know, it is likely that many of
the clerical class are true believers. They do not want the Ummah to
find out.

Christians have a long chain of fulfilled Jewish
prophecies to base their faith on.  Muslims have only Moe’s word.
Islam begins and ends with Moe, who co-opted Jewish Prophets in hopes
of deceiving the local Jews.  The trick did not work; the Jews
laughed him to scorn, recognizing the fraud.

Go to a hadith search engine such as Islamic
Network
and search Sahih Bukhari  for these terms, without the
quotes: “was revealed”, “inspiration” and “your wishes and desires”.

      • every
        one of us who is a religious person knows that there are some who may
        not support or approve of our religion.

      • But is our religion so weak that
        statements of disapproval will cause us to lose our faiths?
         

Moe was extremely sensitive to criticism, so much so
that he ordered his companions to kill several critics.  One clear
example is in the hadith  where we can easily find it, others
are buried in  The Life of
Muhammad
and  Tabari’s
Tahrik
Answering Islam
has several of the relevant accounts.

      • That
        would be most unfortunate. In fact, what we have found, in study after
        study, is that the United States is one of the most religious countries
        in the world. And yet anybody can believe anything and go anywhere.

      • And
        so there is no contradiction between having strong religious beliefs
        and having the freedom to exercise them and to speak about them and to
        even have good debates with others.

Res. 16/18 puts some emphasis on inter-religious
dialog, assuming that it will deaden our awareness of the existential
conflict between Islam and Christianity. When Pope Benedict XVI
lectured at Regensburg, Muslims raised hell and a large number of the
Ulema wrote a missive entitled A Common Word Between Us and You. in which they
called for dialog to find “common ground”.  The central concept of
the missive is drawn from Surah Al Imran 3:64.
That ayeh ends with this sentence: “Bear witness that we are Muslims”;
those are fighting words.  Read the context through #112.
Those threatening words were used in Moe’s extortion letter to Heraclius.

To see how Moe conducted dialog with Christians
(demanding that they curse themselves) turn to this topic in Tafsir Ibn
Kathir: The Challenge to the Mubahalah.

      • Now,
        the fact is that no matter how
        strongly each of us believes, none of us has the benefit of knowing all
        the truth that God holds in his hands

Nobody knows for certain, but Islam asserts a claim
of certainty that it alone has a monopoly on truth and that our
religion is in error.

      • And
        therefore, we are doing the
        best we can here on
        earth to reflect and to give honor to our creator in a way that is
        manifest in our religious values
        . Because truly, at the root of every major religion,
        is a connection with the divinity, 

The root of Islam is war, not a connection with
divinity.  Search the hadith for “inspiration”, you will discover
how Moe got his “revelations”: in epileptic seizures. In the first
instance, he thought that he had wrestled with the devil but his wife
convinced him that he had encountered an angel.  Take another good
long look at 8:67;’
that is some connection with “divinity”.

      • Now
        I know that some in my country
        and elsewhere have criticized this meeting
        and our work with
        all of you.
      •  But
        I want to make clear that I am
        proud of this work,
        and I am proud to be working with every one
        of you. And I believe that this
        work is an affirmation of America’s values
        , but equally
        important an affirmation of
        universal values

Since when is anal osculation either an American or
universal value?  Lifting Satan’s tail & inserting
tongue  solves nothing. Abandoning our precious, hard won right to
speak and write the truth is not an American value.  American
values include life, liberty, property, pursuit of happiness and
defeating our enemies. Yielding liberty to our enemies is the polar
opposite of American values.

      • Because
        we nor – no country
        individually has a monopoly on the truth
        , and we will do better
        when we live in peace with each other, 

In 1789 we were willing to live in peace with the
entire world but the Barbary pirates were not willing to live in peace
with us. They attacked our shipping and demanded tribute, which nearly
bankrupted the young nation. When asked by what right they attacked us,
the Algerian Ambassador replied
in terms which parallel
the reply of Umar’s field commander to the
Persians in Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386.     Peace
will only be possible after Islam is eliminated because Islam is permanent
war
.

      • when
        we live with respect and
        humility, and listen to each other. And it is important that we
        recognize what we accomplished
        when this resolution ended 10 years of divisive debate where people
        were not listening to each other anymore.

It is abundantly clear from the recent statements of
Akram & ishanoglu, as well as the Islamophobia Reports, that
the change is purely rhetorical, a semantic game at which our side
lost.

      • Now
        we are. We’re talking. We have
        to get past the idea that we can suppress religious minorities

This is a terrible place to use the royal we .  It is
Islam, not America that suppresses indigenous religious
minorities.  There is an external ‘religious’ minority which has
infiltrated a fifth column into America with moles in high places in
defense, intelligence and security agencies.  We need to expel and
exclude them. You condemn the only recourse we have a priori.

      • that
        we can restrict
        speech,

When you create a legal construct which ties what we
utter and publish with the completely unrelated actions of unrelated
people on other continents, completely beyond our control, assigning
blame to us for what they do on their own accord, then you are
attempting to restrict free speech by forcing self-censorship.
You are, in effect, erecting a heckler’s veto and abandoning the First
Amendment.

      • that
        we are smart enough
        that we can substitute our judgment for God’s and determine who is or
        is not blaspheming.
         

Open Reliance of the Traveller to O8.0 and start reading, continuing through O8.7;
get a clue!

      • And
        by bringing countries from around the world here,
      • we
        are affirming our common
        humanity

      • and our common commitment to defend
        and promote fundamental rights.

I doubt that any falser words were ever uttered in
the history of mankind. We are committed to defend and promote
fundamental rights, Muslims are not; Muslims are committed to the
abrogation of our rights.  Islam denies the sanctity of our blood
and property, declaring that we have no rights until we become Muslims.
Those denials are contained in Moe’s declaration  quoted in Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387. Projecting our own values
onto the enemy is a suicidal blunder.

      • We
        can think others are wrong, but we don’t feel so insecure and so
        fearful of their wrong views that we try to suppress them, imprison
        them, or even kill them.

Ten years ago, 19 Muslims hijacked four passenger
aircraft and flew three of them into occupied office structures.
They shouted “Allahu akbar!” while slitting the throats of the flight
crews. Subsequently, other Muslims, acting in the name of Allah, bombed
subways in Madrid and London and seized a school in Beslan.  Get a
clue!  In the last 1400 years, 270*106  innocent people lost their
lives to Islam
.  If we do not eradicate Islam, either ideologically or militarily, they will out breed
&  out last us and civilization will be destroyed.

Defamation Meme: Shifted and Substituted, Not Removed!


Article 19 tells us that states should support the draft resolution against belief based discrimination. I quote one of their arguments.

ARTICLE 19 welcomes the draft resolution’s complete omission of the ambiguous “defamation of religions” – a term incompatible with international human rights standards on the right to freedom of expression – and the focus on combating discrimination against persons. The draft is in line with General Comment No 34 of the UN Human Rights Committee of July 2011 that states that “prohibitions of displays of lack of respect for a religion or other belief system, including blasphemy laws, are incompatible with the Covenant, except in the specific circumstances envisaged in article 20, paragraph 2, of the Covenant”.

Note the citation of General Comment No. 34; the next paragraph contains a significant contradiction.

However, ARTICLE 19 suggests that the title and subject of the draft resolution should be shortened by omitting the vague terms of “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization”. The resolution should simply concern “combating discrimination, violence and incitement to violence against persons based on religion or belief”.  Notwithstanding this weakness, states should support the draft resolution

After stating that the draft resolution omits the “defamation of religions” meme, they complain of the inclusion of “negative stereotyping”.   What significant difference is there between the two expressions?

Whereas Article 19 is half way rational, Human Rights First steps in the steaming pile with their headline: “U.N. Third Committee Makes Decisive Break from “Defamation of Religion” “.

“If this text is adopted by the full General Assembly, it would mark a decisive break from the polarizing focus in the past on defamation of religions.” said Human Rights First’s Tad Stahnke. “Governments should now focus on concrete measures to fight religiously-motivated violence, discrimination, and other forms of intolerance, while recognizing the importance of freedom of expression.”

A “decisive break”?  Sorry, suckers. Evidently you did not read the next draft resolution in sequence.  The NGOs want us to believe that the OIC and UN have abandoned the “defamation of Islam” meme which was introduced in 1999 through the Human Rights Commission.

At the opening of the HRC session in March of ’11, Pakistan’s Ambassador made it clear that the defamation meme has not been abandoned. The HRC ratified that fact by adopting the resolution without a vote.

I wish to state categorically that this
resolution does not replace earlier resolutions on combating
defamation.  which were adopted by the Human Rights Council  and
remain valid.  This resolution L.38  is an attempt on the
part of the oic to build consensus on an issue of vital importance
not only to Muslims but to people of all religions

The new resolutions merely rope in votes by shifting an objectionable paragraph out of the draft while including it by reference to past resolutions.  Flip the calendar back one year.

A/C.3/65/L.46 Combating defamation of religions

Expresses deep concern at the negative stereotyping of religions and
manifestations of intolerance and discrimination in matters of religion or belief still
evident in the world;

[…]

Stressing that defamation of religions is a serious affront to human dignity
leading to the illicit restriction of the freedom of religion of their adherents and
incitement to religious hatred and violence,

Stressing also the need to effectively combat defamation of all religions, and
incitement to religious hatred in general,
[…]
Noting with concern that defamation of religions, and incitement to religious
hatred in general, could lead to social disharmony and violations of human rights,
and alarmed at the inaction of some States to combat this burgeoning trend and the
resulting discriminatory practices against adherents of certain religions,

Exactly how is Islam defamed?  The obvious answer is found in ¶7 on page 4 of the resolution.

Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and
wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

While that concept is missing from A/C.3/66/L.47,  it  is  included in  A/C.3/66/L.48 titled “Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief”. It is in ¶10 on page 3, slightly disguised.

Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;

Is Islam wrongly associated with terrorism, or do the two go together hand in glove?  Perhaps you should decide after reading the most relevant ayat & ahadith. Or maybe there is one more piece of evidence you should consider in your deliberations.

3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.”

8:57. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.

8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

9:120.  It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh’s Messenger (Muhammad  when fighting in Allâh’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn.9:120.  It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh’s Messenger (Muhammad  when fighting in Allâh’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life.

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

59:13. Verily ye [are] stronger [than they], by reason of the terror [cast] into their breasts from God. This, because they [are] not people of prudence.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Of course those are old, musty books with no modern relevance, right?  But during the regime of Zia ul-Haq  in Pakistan, Brigadier S.K. Malik wrote a strategy manual for Pakistan’s Army. The Qur’anic Concept of War is modern, relevant and based on Islam’s canon. Pay close attention. The source is page 59 of the text, page 50 of the pdf.

Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end in itself.  Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heat is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved.  It is the point where the means and the end meet and merge.  Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him. [Emphasis original.]

Malik’s book confirmed what we already knew: terrorism is an intrinsic tactic of Islam. The association is well founded, not false; exposing it is not defamatory because it is true.

In the weeks before the General Assembly’s adoption of these resolutions, NGOs, politicians and experts will chortle with glee about the “great victory for free speech”  now that the  “defamation of  religions” concept is eliminated.  But we have no victory, we are suffering defeat, our liberty is being eroded  and we are being told to celebrate and embrace it.

Instead of being eliminated, the defamation meme, while relocated to another resolution, remains in the guise of  “negative stereotyping”.

Combating Religious Hatred and Vilification


I had seen reports that the draft resolution on Combating Defamation of Religions had been edited to substitute vilification for defamation but I had not seen substantive details prior to last night.  One of my Google Alerts linked to an article which included a link to the amended resolution.

What is the big deal?  The State Department asserts that the USA rejects resolution on the basis of the concept of defamation of religions.  I presume that the edit is an attempt to throw a lifeline to Obamination.  Recall that while Obamination rejects defamation, he accepts negative stereotyping, which was substituted for defamation in the Freedom of Opinion and Expression resolution.  The OIC is tinkering with the semantics in hopes of sinning over some of the nay sayers and obstainers to their side.

None of the resolutions define the crucial terms, so I checked the on line dictionaries. A Google search turned up fifteen definitions of defamation.

  • Seven definitions specify that the victim  is a person.
  • Four definition specify that the statement must be false.
  • Six definitions list slander as an element.
  • Five definitions list libel as an element.
  • Two definitions list calumny as an element.
  • One of the definitions lists vilification as an element.
  • Three of the definitions list malicious as an element.

Next, I looked up vilification, receiving four results.

  • Two definitions listed defamation as an element.
  • One definition listed calumny as an element.
  • One definition listed slander and libel as elements.

Next, I looked up negative stereotyping , striking out. Removing the adjective resulted in fifteen definitions.  These are the best of the lot.

  • A stereotype is a commonly held public belief about specific social groups, or types of individuals. The concepts of “stereotype” and “prejudice” are often confused with many other different meanings. …
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotyping
  • stereotype – pigeonhole: treat or classify according to a mental stereotype; “I was stereotyped as a lazy Southern European”
  • stereotype – a conventional or formulaic conception or image; “regional stereotypes have been part of America since its founding”
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

To determine the meaning of those terms, as used in the resolutions, we must examine their context.

  • Stressing that defamation of religions is a serious affront to human dignity leading to the illicit restriction of the freedom of religion of their adherents and incitement to religious hatred and violence,

Who is defamed?  Is Islam a human person?  How does illustrating the cause–effect relationship of Islam to terrorism affront human dignity?  If Muslims find their dignity affronted by exposure of the truth about Islam, they can restore their dignity by converting to a pacifist religion.

How does defamation lead to illicit restriction of freedom of religion?  The reference is obviously to the Swiss minaret ban and the French Burqa ban.  What do minarets have to do with freedom of religion?  In ancient times, they were watch towers. Muslims adopted them for the call to prayer. They also serve as a powerful symbol of Islamic supremacy.  But they are not mentioned in the Qur’an or hadith as religious requirements.

Visit Open Burhan to verify the literal translation and compare the other translations of 33:59. You can check the entry in an Arab/English dictionary to verify it.

  • You, you the prophet, say to your wives and your daughters and the believers’ women they (F) near (lengthen) on them from their shirts/gowns/wide dresses, that (is) nearer that (E) they (F) be known (better than being identified), so they (F) do not be harmed mildly/harmed, and God was/is forgiving, merciful.

If you want to know the real deal, read Sahih Bukhari 1.4.148. Its about Umar hassling Sauda, one of Moe’s wives when she went out to answer a call of nature.

  • 14. Reaffirms the obligation of all States to enact the legislation necessary to prohibit the advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, [Emphasis added.]

That paragraph contains two key phrases which, when compared to certain relevant public statements, give us the final clue.

The Secretary-General is concerned over the controversy that has been created by the publication of the Danish cartoons.  He believes that the freedom of the press should always be exercised in a way that fully respects the religious beliefs and tenets of all religions.
http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2006/sgsm10334.doc.htm

In plain language, Kofi Annan would have prevented the publication of the cartoons if it was in his power. That is the power they are seeking.

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.”

The Secretarys General told us that the Danish Cartoons did not respect Islamic religious beliefs and that Geert Wilders’ documentary constituted hate speech and incitement to violence.

The cartoon of greatest concern depicts Moe with a bomb in his turban, implying that he was a terrorist.  Moe never had a bomb because he died prior to the invention of gunpowder. But he was a terrorist, by his own admission:

  • Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331, Emphasis added.]
  • I have been made victorious with terror [ Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220, Emphasis added.]

The hate speech and incitement in Fitna come from the Qur’an and clerics, not from Geert Wilders.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=216_1207467783

Lets get down to the real issue of defamation, negative stereotyping. ¶ 24 contains a 28 item enumerated list. The seventh item is of interest.

  • 7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

Fitna and the Motoons display that association; what is wrong with it?  Re-examine the quotes from Bukhari’s collection of authentic sayings. Moe said that he won by terrifying his victims.  The Qur’an is not silent about this issue.

  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

We shall terrorize the disbelievers. Click the link and read the context, it is one of aggressive conquest.

  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.”

What did Allah say he would do?  What did he order the angels to do? After reading this appetizer from Tafsir Ibn Kathir, click the link and read the entire passage.

  • Ar-Rabi` bin Anas said, “In the aftermath of Badr, the people used to recognize whomever the angels killed from those whom they killed, by the wounds over their necks, fingers and toes, because those parts had a mark as if they were branded by fire.”
  • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.

Compare the last clause in 8:57 to the last clause in 59:2.  The objective is to build a reputation for brutality; you will see the application in 59:13.

  • [8:60]
    Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

Build the biggest army you can to strike terror.  What is the “cause of God”? [hint]  Now we get down to the practical application of those verses.

  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

    33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

What did Allah say he would do?  What did he do?  What resulted?  Moe and his army killed the men of one tribe and enslaved their widows and orphans. But, of course, Islam has no connection to terror and human rights violations. Its the religion of peace.

  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

What did Allah do to the Bani An-Nadir?  What is the meaning of the admonition?  Can you relate that to the lesson of 8:57?

  • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).

The Jews fear Muslims more than they fear Allah. Why is that?  Can you make the connections with 8:57 & 59:2?  How did Allah cast terror into their hearts?

Those Muslims are supremely arrogant; they assume that we are ignorant, gullible fools who will believe anything if it is repeated with sufficient frequency. “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”.  Islam’s scripture and tradition inform us that the statement from ¶ 24.7 is an accursed lie. They want to base international law on that lie, criminalizing  revelation of the fact that it is a lie!

The true source of Islamic blasphemy law is Reliance of the Traveller.  Observe the penalty for apostasy.

  • o8.1

    When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    o8.2

    In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

Apostates are killed. What acts warrant their death?  Reliance lists twenty, these are particularly relevant.

  • o8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam

    (O: Among the things that entail apostasy from Islam (may Allah protect us from them) are:

  • -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;

    -17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;

    -18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;

    -19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

    -20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )

How do those rules apply to us as disbelievers?  When disbelievers are conquered and subjugated as dhimmis under Islamic supremacy, they are obligated by a treaty of protection. That treaty is violated if they perform certain acts listed in Reliance. Guess what the penalty is.

  • o11.10

    The agreement is also violated (A: with respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated that any of the following things break it, and one of the subjects does so anyway, though if the state has not stipulated that these break the agreement, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject people:
    -5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

  • o11.11

    When a subject’s agreement with the state has been violated, the caliph chooses between the four alternatives mentioned above in connection with prisoners of war (o9.14).

  • o9.14

    When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.

When the resolution is voted out of the third committee and passed in the General Assembly, it will not have the force of law, but it will add unwarranted legitimacy to existing blasphemy laws which are used to persecute religious minorities in several Islamic nations.

Unfortunately, that is not the real threat to our liberty. This is:  Ad Hoc Committee on the elaboration of complementary standards.  The cmte. will meet at the end of November for a week and a few days. Its purpose is to insert the resolution into ICERD through a binding protocol, giving it the force of  international law.  Last year, the cmte. bogged down in procedural matters. We have no way of knowing when it will finish its work, but when it does, we will be outvoted and the protocol will become law.

Several blog posts about the ad hoc cmte. have been compiled.

The resolution will be voted on in the cmte., the vote is expected to happen Monday or Tuesday.  The General Assembly vote should happen in December. Several human rights organizations are lobbying against it, but with little hope of success.   Besides signing the petition posted by Open Doors, there is not much we can do about it.

Our best tactic is a counter attack: to raise the political cost of censoring us above Islam’s threshold of pain.  As I showed you their egregious lie and proved it above, you can share that information with others.  Copy and cross post this blog post. Paste it into emails. Tell everyone who will listen about the injustice being perpetrated by the OIC.

Three international human rights covenants contain provisions which would, if enforced, require that Islam be proscribed by law.  The purpose of the International Qur’an Petition is to bring the vital facts to the attention of the public and the World Court. Please sign it and spread it. Cross post it on your blog or web site. Send it by email to  everyone you can hope to influence.

Combating Defamation of Religions


The current incarnation of the resolution demanding international imposition of Islam’s blasphemy laws is A/C.3/65/L.46. Combating defamation of religions,
dated October 28 ’10. Like its predecessors, the draft resolution begins with references to previous resolutions and related documents, then it gets down to the serious business of reaffirming, welcoming,  underlining and expressing serious concern.   Lets  examine selected  lumps from the septic tank.

Stressing that defamation of religions is a serious affront to human dignity leading to the illicit restriction of the freedom of religion of their adherents and incitement to religious hatred and violence, Stressing also the need to effectively combat defamation of all religions, and incitement to religious hatred in general, Reaffirming that discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief constitutes a violation of human rights and a disavowal of the principles of the Charter,

Defamation usually applies to individuals, see the first terms in a definition search.

  • a false accusation of an offense or a malicious misrepresentation of someone’s words or actions
  • aspersion: an abusive attack on a person’s character or good name
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Perhaps we can find some relevant detail.

Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

 

[…] which clearly confirms, inter alia, that terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group, […]

Almost everyone more than twelve years old should recall immediately what they are kvetching about: the Motoons & Fitna.  The Motoons depict Moe as a terrorist. Is that defamatory?  He died in 632, prior to the invention of gunpowder, so he never had a bomb in his turban.  But he was a self-confessed terrorist.

  • Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.  [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]
  • I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy) [Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220]

The Motoons contained exaggeration, but they also contained the element of truth necessary to effective humor. They did not calumniate or defame Moe.

Fitna juxtaposed the Qur’an with scenes  of Imams inciting the believers to jihad, followed by scenes of slaughter. Fitna connects the dots, demonstrating cause and effect.  It is true, and therefore not defamatory.

In the matter of terrorism: Moe claimed victory through terror. Allah said that he would cast terror, commanded the Muslims to strike off necks and fingers, then  reported that he cast terror and its consequences.[Emphasis added for clarity.]

  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.”
  • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
  • 8:60.  Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

    33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
  • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).

Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam.  Pointing out that fact is not defamatory, it is truthful.

Noting with concern that defamation of religions, and incitement to religious hatred in general, could lead to social disharmony and violations of human rights, and alarmed at the inaction of some States to combat this burgeoning trend and the resulting discriminatory practices against adherents of certain religions

They are alarmed that our government does not silence our criticism of Islam.  The First Amendment gives me a right to expose Islam’s rotten core without fear of the federal government.

Underlining the important role of education in the promotion of tolerance, which involves acceptance by the public of, and its respect for, diversity, including with regard to religious expression, and underlining also the fact that education should contribute in a meaningful way to promoting tolerance and the elimination of discrimination based on religion or belief,

They demand that our schools be co-opted to indoctrinate our children with false praises of Islam so that they will tolerate the intolerable.

Expresses deep concern at the negative stereotyping of religions and manifestations of intolerance and discrimination in matters of religion or belief still evident in the world;

That sentence is redundant, it simply restates the complaint about exposing the doctrines & practices of Islam.  It is the second item in a 28 item enumerated list. The third item follows suit, adding two new elements.

Strongly deplores all acts of psychological and physical violence and assaults, and incitement thereto, against persons on the basis of their religion or belief, and such acts directed against their businesses, properties, cultural centres and places of worship, as well as the targeting and desecration of holy books, holy sites and religious symbols and venerated personalities of all religions;

If you are so concerned about incitement to violence, why don’t you ban the Qur’an, which contains imperatives to wage war on Christians? Are you unable to make the connection between 9:39 & 9:123 with attacks on churches in Egypt, Iraq,Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan & Indonesia?

Here are the novel elements:

  • desecration of holy books
  • venerated personalities

Of course, they are not kvetching about terrorists who occupied the Church of the Nativity, who practiced istinja with pages torn from the Bible. [In the link, Daniel Pipes reveals the existence of a fatwa permitting the practice.] Neither are they kvetching about burning Bibles. The reference is specific to International Burn a Qur’an Day.

And the venerated personality is Moe, who really was a terrorist, not Jesus Christ, whose paternity, divinity, crucifixion, death & resurrection are denied by the Qur’an and who is co-opted by Islam as a genocidal warlord.   The Qur’ans torn and partially burned in New York and torn in Washington D.C. Sept. 11 were English translations, which are not considered sacred or authentic by Islam.

Deplores the use of the print, audio-visual and electronic media, including the Internet, and any other means to incite acts of violence, xenophobia or related intolerance and discrimination against any religion, as well as the targeting and desecration of holy books, holy sites and religious symbols and venerated personalities of all religions;

Their definition of incitement is so loose that it encompasses every possible criticism of Islam. Recall what Secy. Gen. Ban Ki-moon said about Fitna.

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.”

The hate speech in Fitna flows from the lips of Imams. The incitement flows from their lips and from the Qur’an.

Reaffirms that general recommendation XV (42) of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination,14 in which the Committee stipulated that the prohibition of the dissemination of all ideas based upon racial superiority or hatred is compatible with freedom of opinion and expression, is equally applicable to the question of incitement to religious hatred;

I have a few examples for your consideration.

  • 98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ()) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.
  • 2:159. Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allâh and cursed by the cursers.
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

 

Reaffirms the obligation of all States to enact the legislation necessary to prohibit the advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, and encourages States, in their follow-up to the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination,Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, to include aspects relating to national or ethnic, religious and  linguistic minorities in their national plans of action and in this context to take forms of multiple discrimination against minorities fully into account;

That is the same tired boiler plate demand for legislation criminalizing criticism of Islam. Bear in mind what Ban said about Fitna.  Islam contumaciously demands that it be shielded from all questioning and criticism.  Islam demands that it and it alone be allowed to hurl curses while being shielded from return fire.

Ongoing Serious Implications of Islamophobia


A/HRC/15/53, “Report of the Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of  racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, Githu Muigai, on the manifestations of defamation of religions, and in particular on the ongoing serious implications of Islamophobia, for the enjoyment of all rights by their followers.”

The report, issued 07/12/’10,  is in the form of a 19 page pdf file. It consists of an enumerated list of 91 paragraphs. Yesterday I wrote a post about the Rapporteur’s statement introducing the report to the HRC. In this post I will deal with what I consider to be the most important segments of the report.

The report is a reference to five classes of cases “pertaining to Human Rights Council resolution 13/16”.  The cases are classified as follows.

  • acts of violence or discrimination, or incitement thereto, against individuals on the basis of their religion or belief
  • attacks on religious sites
  • religious and ethnic profiling
  • religious symbols
  • negative stereotyping of religions, their followers and sacred persons

Physical assaults and vandalism are covered under domestic laws.  I see no need to get excited about the rare instances. The perpetrators should be found out, prosecuted and punished under existing statutes.

When most criminal acts of a certain type are perpetrated by members of a known set, common sense directs law enforcement’s attention to members of that set.  Most acts of Islamic terrorism are perpetrated by Muslim men between the ages of 17 and 40.  Only a Muslim, a damned fool or a traitor would object to giving extra scrutiny to members of that class when screening for security risks in transportation.

Questions concerning religious symbols are raised in  ¶87 on page 18.  “The Special Rapporteur takes the view that the following questions should be kept in mind when assessing the legality of such bans or restrictions:”

  • is the construction, use or display of certain religious symbols constitutive of the freedom to manifest one’s religion or belief?

A search of the Qur’an, hadith & Reliance of the Traveller turned up a few mentions of minarets in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir and hadth; they related to the descent of Jesus. I found no legal requirement for the construction of minarets.  There is blessed good reason for banning them. Dr. Andrew Bostom explains in Europe News.

The venerable Brill Encyclopedia of Islam (EOI) entry on minarets makes plain that minarets are a political statement of Islamic supremacism. Interestingly, given current Turkish Erdogan’s provocative statement while mayor of Istanbul — (the full statement was quoted in a NY Times story by Stephen Kinzer from 2/16/1998: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes are our helmets, the minarets are our swords, and the faithful are our army”), cited by opponents of minaret construction in Switzerland — the observations from the Brill EOI about the Ottoman perspective on minarets are of particular interest.

Refer to Islamic Architecture: Form, Function, and Meaning  By Robert Hillenbrand.  See also Brill’s Encyclopedia of Islam Pg. 227.
The concept of minarets function as a symbol of supremacism is reinforced by the requirement that dhimmis not build as high as Islamic structures. [Reliance of the Traveller, o11.5(5).]

I know of no good cause why the citizens of Switzerland should be compelled to allow the Muslims to lord it over them with minarets as symbols of power and supremacy.  If you  click the link to Reliance o11.5 and read the sixth item, you will discover that where Allah’s writ runs, Christians are prohibited from displaying  crosses and ringing bells.  Reciprocity anyone?

  • Is the ban or restriction discriminatory (in a direct or indirect manner) vis-à-vis specific groups of  the population?

Who else builds minarets?  Are they really analogous to steeples?

  • Is the ban or restriction on the display of religious symbols proportionate to the necessity for security measures by the State concerned?

My view is that this question  applies principally to the issue of banning the niqab.  The impossibility of identifying the wearer creates a security risk in that terrorists and robbers could gain a degree of impunity by cross dressing.  There have been law suits over ID photos taken wearing the niqab.  In that case, the insult to sanity is so obvious as to require no elaboration.

  • Is the ban or restriction on the display of religious symbols necessary to uphold the principle  of equality of men and women?

If that is what you are about, you’d better outlaw Islam altogether because the Qur’an clearly states the superiority of men in 4:34 and made women chattel  in 2:223.  Female inferiority is reinforced in  Sahih Bukhari 1.6.301 (deficient in intelligence & religion)..

  • Does the ban or restriction take into account the individual freedom to wear or not to wear religious symbols?

If a Muslima wants to wear a hijab, big deal. I see no reason to prohibit it; it does no harm, and, like a skunk’s stripes, it serves as a visible warning sign.  The S.R. thinks that  “such questions should be provided by an independent and impartial judiciary and in light of the specific circumstances of each case under
consideration.”

In ¶88, also on pg. 18, the S..R. gets down to the important stuff.

The Special Rapporteur regrets reports of stereotyping which do not contribute to the creation of an environment conducive to constructive and peaceful dialogue among communities. Nonetheless, he recalls that peaceful expressions of opinions and ideas should always be tolerated, as long as they do not fall under the restrictions in articles 19, paragraph 3, and 201 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
  • regrets reports of stereotyping

Is it the reports or the stereotyping he regrets?  Presumably its the latter.

  • which do not contribute to the creation of an environment conducive to constructive and peaceful dialogue
    • among communities

Conversations take place between individuals, not communities.  We ought to be one community, not Balkanized  enclaves. How could there be a constructive and peaceful dialogue when Islam has declared  and is prosecuting war against us?  Has the S.R. bothered to read the Qur’an & hadith?  [Fight those who… until…]

Of course, those banners reading “Freedom Go to Hell”,  “Islam Will Dominate The World” and “Behead Those Who Insult Islam” contribute greatly to “constructive and peaceful dialogue”.  Yeah, right.

We find ¶89 on page 19 of the report.

The Special Rapporteur distinguishes between stereotyping of religions on one hand and of religious followers or sacred persons on the other. With regard to stereotyping of religious followers and of sacred persons, the Special Rapporteur
recalls that the right to freedom of expression may be restricted in order to protect, inter alia, the rights or reputations of others. However, in accordance with articles 19 and 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, any restrictions on the right to freedom of expressions must be established in law; they must pursue a legitimate aim; and they must be proportional to the aim sought to be achieved. As a result, the Special Rapporteur believes that a very high threshold should be met and that the defamatory expressions targeting individuals must have been proven false before they warrant restrictions and sanctions thereon. Moreover, he recommends that sanctions be of a civil nature only and that fines arising from civil defamation procedures respect the principle of proportionality in order not to have a long-lasting and chilling effect on the right to freedom of expression.
  • stereotyping of religious followers

Are they Muslims or ain’t they?  Muslims are commanded to obey Allah and his messenger. If they do that, then Allah’s imperatives and Moe’s sunnah must describe their attitude & conduct.

  • in order to protect, inter alia, the rights

Exactly what right would be protected by prohibiting criticism of Islam?  What right is violated when we reveal the fact that Islam is a predator preying on the human race?  What right do we violate when we expose its mercenary mission and martial method?  Would writing about prostitution, drug & bootlegging rackets violate some right of Mafiosi?

  • a very high threshold should be met
  • defamatory expressions targeting individuals must have been proven false

Should those restrictions apply to the case of Geeert Wilders?  Why was that not mentioned in this report?  Truth is not listed as a possible defense in the Dutch law under which Wilders is being persecuted.

The issue of stereotyping religions comes up in ¶90.

With regard to stereotyping of religions, he recalls that vigorously interrogating and criticizing religious doctrines and their teachings is thoroughly legitimate and constitutes a significant part of the exercise of the right to freedom of opinion or expression. Therefore, the Special Rapporteur would like to reiterate that domestic blasphemy laws aiming to protect religions per se can prove counterproductive since they could result in de facto censure of robust examination of
religious doctrines and teachings and of inter- and intra-religious criticism. Moreover, the Special Rapporteur received reports that many of these laws afford different levels of protection to different religions and have often proved to be applied in a discriminatory manner. He was informed of numerous examples of persecution of religious minorities or dissenting believers, but also of atheists and non-theists, as a result of legislation on religious offences or overzealous application of laws that may be fairly neutral on the face of it. Consequently, the Special Rapporteur encourages States to move away from the notion of defamation of religions towards the legal concept of advocacy of racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence in order to anchor the debate in the relevant existing international legal framework, and in particular that provided in the  International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
  • vigorously interrogating … religious doctrines constitutes a significant part of the exercise of the right to freedom of opinion or expression.

Where does he recall that from?  Is it not self-evident?

  • persecution of religious minorities or dissenting believers,

Such as the persecutions in Indonesia & Pakistan?

  • advocacy of racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence

Precisely how will you define and measure that abstract concept?  Self-appointed arbiters such as the Secretary General and the HRC2 assert that Fitna and the Motoons fit that concept.   In fact, Fitna and the Motoons describe incitement, they do not constitute it.

¶91 illustrates the insanity of the basic concept.

Advocacy of racial or religious hatred is a symptom, the external manifestation of something much more profound which is intolerance and bigotry. Intolerance against individuals based on their religion or belief unfortunately continues to be  manifested in different ways. It is therefore critical that States find the most effective ways through which to protect individuals from advocacy of hatred and violence by others. While legislative responses have often been relied on by States to respond to  these phenomena, they are far from being sufficient to bring about real changes in mindsets, perceptions and discourse. Indeed, tackling the root causes of manifestations of religious intolerance affecting individual’s human rights requires a much broader set of policy measures, for example in the areas of education, awareness-raising and interreligious and intercultural dialogue. The Special Rapporteur therefore strongly recommends that States put a strong emphasis on a  broad range of preventive measures which aim at fostering a peaceful society where, inter alia, freedom of expression and freedom of religion or belief may be fully exercised by all individuals.
  • Advocacy of racial or religious hatred is a symptom, the external manifestation of something much more profound which is intolerance and bigotry.

The Preface to the  Second Edition of the Calcutta Qur’an Petition lists the numerous ayat which inspire hatred of non-Muslims. Faithful Muslims who go to the Mosque to pray curse us  17 times each day.  That is what they are doing when they recite the first Surah of the Qur’an, they are reminding Allah why he wants to burn us who “earned his wrath” and  “went astray”.

  • advocacy of hatred and violence

Get a clue, for Chrissake!!! “Fight them”, Fight those who” and ”  9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2). are the real incitement to violence.  Moe gave the believers an example to emulate: “I am  ordered to fight“.

  • a peaceful society where … freedom of expression and freedom of religion or belief may be fully exercised by all individuals

The S.R. just described a world without Islam.  Sorry, sucker, there is no religious freedom in Islam.  The penalty for apostasy is death!

08.0 APOSTASY FROM ISLAM (RIDDA)
(0: Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief
(kufr) and the worst. It may come about
through sarcasm, as when someone is told, “Trim
your nails, it is sunna,” and he replies, “I would
not do it even if it were,” as opposed to when some
circumstance exists which exonerates him of having
committed apostasy, such as when his tongue
runs away with him, or when he is quoting someone,
or says it out of fear.)
08.1 When a person who has reached puberty
and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he
deserves to be killed.
08.2 In such a case, it is obligatory for the
caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to
repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is
accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is
immediately killed.

To comprehend the full enormity of that which the OIC seeks to impose upon us through the HRC & GA resolutions which they are seeking to insert into ICERD through a binding protocol, you need to delve further into Shari’ah.  O8.7 contains a list of 20 acts and attitudes which entail apostasy. Any negative statement about  Allah or Moe; any reviling or expression of doubt about Islam or denial of any part of the Qur’an gets a Muslim killed.

That same list of prohibitions is applied to dhimmis by extension. O11.5 lists legal and social restrictions on dhimmis.    O11.10 lists acts which violate the treaty of protection, subjecting the dhimmi who commits them to immediate execution.  Pay special attention to the fifth item in the list: :”(5) or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam. “.

011. IO The agreement is also violated (A: with
respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated
that any of the following things break it, and
one of the suhjects does so anyway. though if the
state has not stipulated that these break the agreement,
then they do not; namely, if one of the subject
people:
(1) commits adultery with a Muslim woman
or marries her:
(2) conceals spies of hostile forces;
(3) leads a Muslim away from Islam;
(4) kills a Muslim;
(5) or mentions something impermissible
about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and
give him peace), or Islam.

Because it inculcates hatred & incites violence, the intolerant war cult can not be tolerated.  Nor can we tolerate having its blasphemy laws imposed upon us.  We must rise up and raise  loud objections while we are still able to do so without being fined and imprisoned for  defending our lives and  liberty.  For this reason I exhort all lovers of life and liberty to sign the  International Qur’an Petition, copy it, paste it into an email and send it to everyone you can hope to influence with an exhortation to sign and forward it.


Article 19
1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.
2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice. 3. The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary:
(a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others;
(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of
public health or morals.

Article 20
1. Any propaganda for war shall be prohibited by law.
2. Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to
discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law..

  1. 7. Expresses deep concern in this respect that Islam is frequently and wrongly
    associated with human rights violations and terrorism and, in this regard, regrets the laws or
    administrative measures specifically designed to control and monitor Muslim minorities,
    thereby stigmatizing them and legitimizing the discrimination they experience;  [¶’5-7 of the pdf. The reference to the Motoons is obvious!]
