Come and get me
The international Islamic assault on free speech continues. If this passes, not just caricatures will become illegal. It will become illegal to speak about the elements of Islam that jihadists use to incite violence and supremacism among Muslims. And so we will be mute before the advancing jihad. Of course, it can’t happen here, right? After all, we have the First Amendment. But what will happen when the UN starts telling President Obama that opposition to this measure and others like it constitutes Islamophobia, and will severely impede his attempt to build bridges with the Islamic world?
“OIC to move UNGA against caricatures,” from the Daily Times, September 17 (thanks to all who sent this in):
ISLAMABAD: A resolution against the publication of blasphemous caricatures of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) in various countries will be presented in the upcoming session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), an Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) representative said on Tuesday.
“The resolution will demand legislation against the publication of blasphemous caricatures of revered personalities and derogatory remarks against religions. It will also demand [sacrilegious] actions be declared a crime,” OIC Secretary General’s Special Representative on Kashmir Ezzat Kamel Mufti told a news conference.
Mufti said a particular group in America and the European Union had been launching attacks against Islam. “However, we should not get emotional and resort to any kind of violence, including suicide bombings,” he said.
That’s mighty generous of you, Mufti.
