Obama Administration Pushes UN Resolution That Bans Criticism of Islamic Radicalism

Thanks to the Obama Administration – Criticism of Islamic violence will be forbidden.

The Obama Administration helped the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) push through their resolution condemning the stereotyping, negative profiling and stigmatization of people based on religion. Team Obama led the way for the resolution to pass through the General Assembly.
CNS News reported:

The U.N. General Assembly on Monday adopted a resolution condemning the stereotyping, negative profiling and stigmatization of people based on their religion, and urging countries to take effective steps “to address and combat such incidents.”

No member state called for a recorded vote on the text, which was as a result adopted “by consensus.”

The resolution, an initiative of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), is based on one passed by the U.N.’s Human Rights Council in Geneva last spring. The State Department last week hosted a meeting to discuss ways of “implementing” it.

Every year since 1999 the OIC has steered through the U.N.’s human rights apparatus a resolution condemning the “defamation of religion,” which for the bloc of 56 Muslim states covered incidents ranging from satirizing Mohammed in a newspaper cartoon to criticism of shari’a and post-9/11 security check profiling.

Critics regard the measure as an attempt to outlaw valid and critical scrutiny of Islamic teachings, as some OIC states do through controversial blasphemy laws at home.

Strongly opposed by mostly Western democracies, the divisive “defamation” resolution received a dwindling number of votes each year, with the margin of success falling from 57 votes in 2007 to 19 in 2009 and just 12 last year.

This year’s text was a departure, in that it dropped the “defamation” language and included a paragraph that reaffirms “the positive role that the exercise of the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the full respect for the freedom to seek, receive and impart information can play in strengthening democracy and combating religious intolerance.”

The nod to freedom of expression won the resolution the support of the U.S. and other democracies, with the Obama administration and others hailing it as a breakthrough after years of acrimonious debate.

Doubtful. Look for this new resolution to be used against anyone who dares criticize Islamic violence. Why else would the OIC and Obama push it?

By the way… There have been 18,161 deadly attacks in the name of Islam since 9-11.

Obama doesn’t want you to talk about it.

    Let the U.N. attempt to enforce this on me. Blue helmets make great aim points.

    Nothing like lying with the enemy. Too bad the general public has no clue what has happened to European countries that have imposed laws forbidding saying anything bad about the Muslims. The American citizenry needs to fight the Obama administration about this but I’m sure with their head stuck in dark places that is not going to happen. The thing is, these laws in Europe do not stop the Muslims from saying anything bad about Christianity, Judaism or any other religion they chose to speak against.

    Obama and his UN child rapists can kiss my a$$.

    OK. Let’s all congratulate it, then, for exposing itself through embracing that special brand of murder, mayhem and all the rest of its 14 centuries of bloody, inbred, drooling imbecilic behavior.

  • RedBeard

    Get the UN out of New York. But collect the parking fines first, and have the filthy dictators who run the place pay for the necessary fumigation.

  • Michael

    Is that ALL religions? Does this mean they have to stop killing Christians in the Middle East?

    I didn’t think so.

  • esterodude

    so does this mean that the islamic countries can’t say nasty things about the joos any more or that the lame stream media and the obummer administration (redundant, I know) won’t portray christians as dumb backward fools and hicks?

  • Dobie

    To ar05075 and all and to obozo too

  • KLD

    Sorry UN, I’ll call it as I see it. If it’s violence done in the name of Allah and Islam, then that’s what what it is. I think Islam is a twisted version of Judaism, dreamed up by a nutcase eating magic mushrooms—it’s a religion I have no interest in embracing. I simply don’t believe it’s the ‘true’ religion..
    Now if Islam wants to be tolerant, or in the words of this resolution , promote and practice~~ “the positive role that the exercise of the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the full respect for the freedom to seek, receive and impart information can play in strengthening democracy and combating religious intolerance.”~~~to all, then I’m sure I’ll have no problem with their religious beliefs. But allowing any of the above doesn’t seem to be intrinsic to their beliefs.

    Time to have another Draw Mohammed contest.


    odumbass…the UN…and Islam can kiss my lilly white A$$

  • Secret Squirrel

    Let’s see, Bill Mahar will still be able to make his lambasting of Christians but it will be illegal for someone to criticize islam. I guess this is because the UN and the left knows islam is the religion of beheadings.

  • Freedm_Fighter

    I’m sure Islamic nations will take this to heart and stop the attacks and criticisms of Christianity in their countries since they pushed the legislation. (end sarcasm)

    Obama’s UN Resolution to Stifle Free Speech on Islam

    October 2009

    [On October 1, 2009, the Obama administration in conjunction with the
    Egyptian government, introduced an anti-free speech measure to the
    United Nation’s Human Rights Council (HRC). It was adopted the next
    day without a vote.]

    What typical leftist double-talk bullsh!t: Sure, the resolution PRETENDS to support freedom of expression; but when you read the fine print, you realize, #1, it ONLY favors speech that “combats religious intolerance,” NOT speech that criticizes a religion; and #2, it calls for governments to take effective steps “to address and combat” stereotyping of people based on their religion, which means GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP, plain and simple, which of course is the OPPOSITE of freedom of speech.

    I swear, this G-D Obama administration is the f*cking embodiment of the Orwellian nightmare. It is evil to its core and must be CRUSHED at the polls in November 2012.

    Please forgive my cursing. The daily outrages from this gangster regime, which seem to become more outrageous with every day, are making it harder and harder for me to maintain civility.
