Free Speech Death Watch Alert: Secretary of State Clinton says State Department will coordinate with OIC on legal ways to implement UN's resolution criminalizing "defamation of religion"Topics: Abortion, Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Given the truth about Muslims' protests against the West ... one might first believe this story is a cruel hoax.
Unfortunately, it's not: Moving rapidly to try to implement an "anti-Islamophobia" UN resolution that cannot be reconciled with the First Amendment and that would criminalize telling the truth about how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to encourage violence and supremacism, the pro-Islam Obama Administration plans to host a coordination meeting to discuss with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) how to implement the Islamists-pushed resolution no. 16/18 on combating defamation of religions (Islamo-speak for "honest discussion of the ideology that motivates Islamic jihadists"):
[...] The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had announced the intention of the U.S. State Department to organize a coordination meeting during her participation in the meeting which she co-chaired with the OIC Secretary General, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Istanbul on 15 July 2011. The meeting issued a joint statement emphasizing the dire need for the implementation of resolution 16/18.(emphasis mine)
According to informed sources in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the two sides, in addition to other European parties, will hold a number of specialized meetings of experts in law and religion in order to finalize the legal aspect on how to better implement the UN resolution.
The sources said that the upcoming meetings aim at developing a legal basis for the UN Human Rights Council's resolution which help in enacting domestic laws for the countries involved in the issue, as well as formulating international laws preventing inciting hatred resulting from the continued defamation of religions.
On the other hand, the OIC Secretary General, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, stressed that the crime committed recently in Norway was a result of the rise of the extreme right in Europe and its easy mobility in political circles. He said that the OIC had warned several times against of what might be called institutionalization of the phenomenon of Islamophobia through the involvement of the European extreme right in government institutions and political action....
Meeting to finalize a "legal aspect on how to better implement the UN resolution"? No "legal basis" exists for restricting free speech in the U.S., period!
The Obama State Department has obviously chosen to ignore the fact that Americans take their freedom of speech rather seriously, and no Muslim nation, nor the UN, can usurp the right of every American to criticize Islam or any other religion, even severely. It is our Constitutional right to do so, and not even Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can take that away from us.
