At the Madrid Conference In July, a statement was issued which included a demand for national & international legislation to forbid criticism of Islam.

The demand was modeled on similar demands expressed in recent resolutions passed by the UNHRC & General Assembly. Another such resolution is pending. Details are posted at www.snooper.wordpress.com . Search for UN Bans Criticism of Islam.

NAACP president Ben Jealous and activist Reverend Al Sharpton have embraced the project as being good for race relations.”

Sound ridiculous? I think so, too. King Abdullah should clean his own house before even suggesting that the U.N. and other countries address the problem of religious freedom. This is a thinly veiled attempt by the OIC to suppress criticism of fundamentalist Islamic ideology.

But I suspect that in more than a few cases the real reason for participating is to promote more hidden agendas. The words of President Asif Ali Zardari are concerning. What would constitute hate speech and religious discrimination? Could this be a case of offensive defense? There seems a trend to pitch some faiths as all loving and peaceful and others as full of hatred and bigotry, or at least any adherents that add an objective criticism about another. Hopefully I’m wrong!

But it appears true that truth is no longer considered, only the form of promotion that accompanies it.
