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.

Defamation of Religions Resolution Passed in Third Committee

Draft was adopted with 76 votes in favor, 64 against and 42 abstentions.
GA Third Committee Revised Draft Resolution "Combating defamation of religions"Development [Eye on the UN]

The link is to an earlier version, prior to the substitution of vilification for defamation.  The Volokh Conspiracy indicates that it was the more recent  amended version which was approved.

76–64 with 42 abstentions.

81–55 with 43  '09  26

-5    9            -1

Many of the news reports  mention the decreasing level of support for the resolution.  So it got five fewer votes in favor and nine more in opposition. Big deal, it still passed.  While the trend is encouraging, it is not satisfying.

    The U.N.'s press release is ambiguous, leaving uncertainty about the identity and content of the draft which was voted on.

The draft resolution on the Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief, would have the Assembly condemn all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief, as well as any incitement to religious hatred through the use of print, audio-visual or electronic media.  It would go on to emphasize 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”.  Nicholas Nihon of Belgium, the main sponsor, noted with regret that in order to achieve consensus, the text carried no reference to the right of persons to change their faith, or not to adhere at all to any religion or belief.  Action on the draft was preceded by the introduction of another draft by Morocco on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, on combating defamation of religions that would, among several points, have the Assembly express deep concern that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with terrorism.


L.32/Rev.1   Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief  Oral revision not reflected in this version.

10. 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;
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly
associated with human rights violations and terrorism; [combating defamation / vilification of Islam]


These similar provisions fly in the face of the Qur'an's five explicit and two implicit references to casting terror and two statements by Moe in which he bragged about winning with terror.  Have any of these idiots read The Qur'anic Concept of War? Why would a Pakistan army training manual use such language?

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 heart 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 me decision we wish to impose upon him.

 

(i) To ensure that, in accordance with appropriate national legislation and in
conformity with international human rights law, the freedom of all persons and
members of groups to establish and maintain religious, charitable or humanitarian
institutions is fully respected and protected;


The obvious connection with the Holy Land Foundation trial can not be ignored. Zakat of 2.5% is assessed on wealth and transactions. 1/8 of zakat is allocated to those "fighting in Allah's cause".


(l) To promote, through the educational system and other means, mutual
understanding, tolerance, non-discrimination and respect in all matters relating to
freedom of religion or belief by encouraging, in the society at large, a wider
knowledge of different religions and beliefs and of the history, traditions, languages
and cultures of the various religious minorities existing within their jurisdiction;


This provision is an obvious demand that our schools be used to indoctrinate students with hagiographic images of Islam, falsely portraying it as a "religion of peace"  They are waging war against us, trying to out breed & subvert us and we are supposed to tolerate it. Yeah, right.  We are supposed to respect a war cult whose members believe that they have a divine mission to conquer us. Yeah, right. 

    This vote by the third committee sets the stage for final passage by the General Assembly next month.  That will give Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan and others immoral support for the local laws used to persecute minorities. 

    On a parallel track, running under the radar, the HRC's Ad Hoc Committee on the Elaboration of Complementary Standards is working on a protocol to inject the resolution's provisions into ICERD, giving them the force of international law.  Few know about this, nobody is doing anything to stop it. Now is the time to rise up and raise Hell!   For liberty's sake, sign, publicize, promote and share this petition:  International Qur'an Petition.
