Arab Nations: Ban Slandering of Religion

I'll take Double Standards for $400, Alex!

I posted about this earlier this month , and it seems the MSM is finally catching on to it.

Arab and Islamic governments should pressure the United Nations to ban the slandering of religions, said more than 200 Arab politicians who renewed their criticism today of the contentious Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

The call, which was made at the end of a two-day conference at a Dead Sea resort in Jordan, comes amid outrage felt throughout the Islamic world over the publication in a Danish newspaper of a series of cartoons of Islam’s prophet.

“We urge Arab and Muslim governments to spare no effort to pressure the UN to issue a resolution banning the slandering of religions,” the politicians from 16 Arab countries representing the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union said in a statement.

Those who violate such a resolution should face legal action, added the statement.

The UN is not, I repeat, not, a governing world body, as much as it would like to be. Here is the purpose of the UN, from its own website:

The purposes of the United Nations, as set forth in the Charter, are to maintain international peace and security; to develop friendly relations among nations; to cooperate in solving international economic, social, cultural and humanitarian problems and in promoting respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; and to be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations in attaining these ends.

I don't see anything about passing international laws. The UN can put pressure on its member countries, I suppose, but those sovereign nations make their own laws, thank you very much.

However, for the sake of argument, let's say such a law was passed worldwide. Then any Arab or Muslim nation would face legal action for publishing cartoons such as these:



Some have argued that the cartoons are deriding the Jews as a people and not their religion. I say, hogwash. Deriding someone as a Jew is deriding the Jewish faith. Period. Freedom of speech for me but not for thee seems to be the order of the day...
