This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Durban II Sham Revision

Anne Bayefsky reports in Forbes: "Obama Should Denounce Durban II ".

She reports that a revised draft of the Durban II resolution drops certain offensive language, but commences with a reaffirmation of the DDPA of '01.
Inclusion of that reaffirmation brands the revision as an unacceptable sham. While she gives us some paraphrases and brief quotes, no link to the revision is provided in her report or any of the available news reports of the revision.

In the absence of authoritative text, I reject the revised draft on the basis of what it affirms. Bear in mind while reading the following quotes from the DDPA,, that wherever "racism" is printed, you must read "Islamophobia".
The following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference [Emphasis added.]

4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;



DDPA
pg 12

59. We recognize with deep concern religious intolerance against certain religious
communities
, as well as the emergence of hostile acts and violence against such communities
because of their religious beliefs and their racial or ethnic origin in various parts of the world
which in particular limit their right to freely practise their belief;

60. We also recognize with deep concern the existence in various parts of the world
of religious intolerance against religious communities and their members, in particular limitation
of their right to practise their beliefs freely, as well as the emergence of increased negative
stereotyping
, hostile acts and violence against such communities because of their religious
beliefs and their ethnic or so-called racial origin;
61. We recognize with deep concern the increase in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia
in various parts of the world, as well as the emergence of racial and violent movements based on
racism and discriminatory ideas against Jewish, Muslim
and Arab communities;
62. We are conscious that humanity’s history is replete with terrible wrongs inflicted
through lack of respect for the equality of human beings and note with alarm the increase of such
practices in various parts of the world, and we urge people, particularly in conflict situations, to
desist from racist incitement, derogatory language and negative stereotyping;


pg. 15
79. We firmly believe that the obstacles to overcoming racial discrimination and
achieving racial equality mainly lie in the lack of political will, weak legislation and lack of
implementation strategies and concrete action by States, as well as the prevalence of racist
attitudes
and negative stereotyping;

80. We firmly believe that education, development and the faithful implementation of
all international human rights norms and obligations, including enactment of laws and political,
social and economic policies
, are crucial to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and
related intolerance;

81. We recognize that democracy, transparent, responsible, accountable and
participatory governance responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people, and respect for
human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law are essential for the effective prevention
and elimination of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. We
reaffirm that any form of impunity for crimes motivated by racist and xenophobic attitudes plays
a role in weakening the rule of law and democracy and tends to encourage the recurrence of such
acts;


85. We condemn political platforms and organizations based on racism, xenophobia
or doctrines of racial superiority and related discrimination, as well as legislation and practices
based on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, as incompatible with
democracy and transparent and accountable governance. We reaffirm that racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance condoned by governmental policies violate
human rights and may endanger friendly relations among peoples, cooperation among nations
and international peace and security;


86. We recall that the dissemination of all ideas based upon racial superiority or
hatred shall be declared an offence punishable by law
with due regard to the principles embodied
in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the rights expressly set forth in article 5 of the
International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination;
pg. 48
150. Calls upon States, in opposing all forms of racism, to recognize the need to
counter anti-Semitism, anti-Arabism and Islamophobia world-wide, and urges all States to take
effective measures to prevent the emergence of movements based on racism and discriminatory
ideas concerning these communities;
Those expressions are absolutely unacceptable to lovers of liberty; they should never have been uttered, published & promulgated and must not be affirmed because they constitute a thinly veiled demand for the global imposition of Islam's blasphemy law.

Paragraph 150 calls for all states to criminalize Islamophobia through effective legislation. There is no such entity! Phobia implies irrational fear & loathing. Islam has earned fear & loathing; the former intentionally, as celebrated in 33:26 and 59:13. A war cult responsible for 270 million deaths over the last 1384 years is worthy of loating.

Shari'ah is unacceptable, whether it is imposed by force, legislated directly or sneaked in through the back door. It plainly states that we may be executed for saying anything "impermissible" about Islam.

Yes, indeed, President Barack Hussein Obama should denounce the sham revision of the Durban II draft. I doubt that he will, I expect him to accept the sham as an opportunity for "engagement". I will be pleasantly surprised if he does permanently denounce it.
