In conjunction with Muslim pressure groups throughout around the world, for years the OIC has been hard at work trying to murder Free Speech in the name of Sharia. Through the psychological campaign of "Islamophobia", Islamists worldwide have worked to frame speech against the horrors of Islam as hate speech and racial discrimination. And when Muslims behave like barbarians over the exercise of Free Speech, the blasphemy law pushers blame the speech--and then use the manufactured blame to transfer responsibility from Muslims to Kuffar thereby justifying legal action against Freedom. It's all just smoke and mirrors carefully designed to obfuscate and empower the propagation of Sharia Law behind a veil of "tolerance" and "peace".
The calls for blasphemy laws heard at the UN over the last few days are nothing more than practical implementation details of the OIC's strategy (see video above) for outlawing blasphemy against Islam in every country of the world.
(AP) — The head of the Arab League called Wednesday for the international community to criminalize blasphemy, warning that insults to religion pose a serious threat to global peace and security. The comments put him squarely at odds with the United States and many of its western allies, which are resolutely opposed to restrictions on freedom of expression.
Also at Wednesday's U.N. Security Council session, the U.S. and Russia offered starkly differing assessments of the situation in Syria, underscoring the global body's inability to unite around a strategy to end the Arab country's civil war. Whereas Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton decried Syrian President Bashar Assad's "murdering of his own people," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the U.S. and other countries of encouraging terrorism.
But perhaps the most controversial argument came from the Arab League's Nabil Elaraby, who told the U.N. Security Council that if the west has criminalized acts that result in bodily harm, it must also criminalize acts that insult or cause offense to religions. He condemned the violence that erupted throughout the Muslim world in response to an anti-Islam film produced in the United States. But, he said that unless blasphemy laws are enacted and enforced, similar incidents could happen again.
"While we fully reject such actions that are not justifiable in any way, we would like to ring the warning bell," Elaraby said. "We are warning that offending religions, faiths and symbols is indeed a matter that threatens in international peace and security now."
"If the international community has criminalized bodily harm, it must just as well criminalize psychological and spiritual harm," he said. "The League of Arab States calls for the development of an international legal framework which is binding ... in order to confront insulting religions and ensuring that religious faith and its symbols are respected."
Elaraby maintained that the 21-member Arab League valued the freedom of speech but stressed that "we don't see any relation between freedom of expression which aims at enriching culture and building civilization of the one hand and activities that merely offend and insult the beliefs, culture and civilization of others."
Individual members of the Arab League, including Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, have issued similar calls.
