"Discussing Sharia here is an insult to our religion"Topics: Dhimmitude, Islamic Fascism, Understanding Islam, United Nations Incompetence
Those were the words pronounced by the representative of Egypt in UN when the representative from IHEU tried to discuss Sharia Law and Human Rights... in regard to the Universal Declaration of the UN Human Rights Commission. The reason the Islamists gave is that it was a "question out of order".
The video containing the moment of the intervention of IHEU (International Humanist and Ethical Union) and the statement sent to UN by this organization can be found here.
IHEU has responded to claims that the "Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam" is "not an alternative" to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but "complementary" to it. In a written statement to the UN Human Rights Council, IHEU opposed any resolution that seeks to limit the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration.
On Human Rights Day, 10 December 2007, the Pakistani Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council claimed that the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, adopted in 1990 by the 56 member states of the Orgainsation of the Islamic Conference "is not an alternative" to the Universal Declaration but "complementary". Complementary? Yet the Cairo Declaration makes no mention of the Universal Declaration and clearly states that: "All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari'ah", and "The Islamic Shari'ah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification to any of the articles of this Declaration."

Back when this film was made in the mid Thirties there seem to be an abundance of films about madcap heiresses. In the middle of the Great Depression films about the rich partying away seemed to find an audience.
Back then the real life model was Peggy Hopkins Joyce, today it's Paris Hilton. We just love to read about the rich doing their reveling.
So the premise is a bit ludicrous about Loretta Young getting very angry at the newspaper reporters for reporting on her every move. Believe me if she didn't want publicity she wouldn't get any. Believe it or not, then as now, there are rich people out there who are not tabloid fodder.
But I guess anyone can get a little cranky and Loretta has come her time of crankiness in Love Is News. When an especially enterprising reporter gets on board her private plane, she's had it. While reporter Tyrone Power thinks he's scooped his colleagues, Young has an impromptu press conference with the others and announces she's engaged to Tyrone Power.
And then Power as he was in real life becomes the object of a lot of tabloid fodder. His editor is Don Ameche who keeps firing and hiring him back to straighten the mess out. If this were done at Warner Brothers, Love Is News would have been perfect for James Cagney and Pat O'Brien.
Twelve years later Power did a remake of this same film with Gene Tierney. Hard to choose between the two which is better.
Ty is at the beginning of his career and Darryl Zanuck was casting him in all kinds of parts, comedic, adventurous, dramatic. And Power himself was perfecting his screen image.
Best scenes in the film involve small town judge Slim Summerville who Young comes up before for speeding and that sets up a whole bunch of funny situations.
