Isn’t anyone ever going to ask the question:
- Why does slam have such a bad image?
Maybe there actually is something to this phenomenon that world leaders refuse to examine called Islam. If you say “Islam is a religion of peace” enough times, the world will eventually believe it and that’s what Islam’s political arm has done throughout the world. Even in America, the political arm of Islam is a well oiled propaganda machine.
- They will never admit what’s clearly stated in the Koran.
- They’ll never admit what’s clear about the atrocities Mohammed committed.
- They’ll never admit that the ultimate goal is a world-wide Islamic caliphate ruled by Islamic law.
- They’ll never admit that Islam is anti-freedom.
- They’ll never admit to stoning gays, adulterers and apostates.
- They’ll never admit to treating women like pieces of property.
Oh wait, they actually HAVE admitted these things, but they think we don’t take them seriously. Somehow, this must be religion of peace. There’s no possibility this religion could actually be rooted in EVIL?
Now Islamic leaders around the world are creating a way to use international courts to sue anyone who criticizes Islam.
I guess free speech only applies when you’re not talking about Islam.
DAKAR, Senegal - The Muslim world has created a battle plan to defend its religion from political cartoonists and bigots.
Concerned about what they see as a rise in the defamation of Islam, leaders of the world’s Muslim nations are considering taking legal action against those that slight their religion or its sacred symbols. It was a key issue during a two-day summit that ended Friday in this western Africa capital.
The Muslim leaders are attempting to demand redress from nations like Denmark, which allowed the publication of cartoons portraying the Prophet Muhammad in 2006 and again last month, to the fury of the Muslim world.
Though the legal measures being considered have not been spelled out, the idea pits many Muslims against principles of freedom of speech enshrined in the constitutions of numerous Western governments.
“I don’t think freedom of expression should mean freedom from blasphemy,” said Senegal’s President Abdoulaye Wade, the chairman of the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference. “There can be no freedom without limits.”
A new charter drafted by the OIC commits the Muslim body “to protect and defend the true image of Islam” and “to combat the defamation of Islam.”
To protect the faith, Muslim nations have created an “observatory” that meets regularly to monitor Islamophobia. It examines lectures and workshops taking place around the world and prints a monthly record of offensive content.
