Innocence of Muslims Update: OIC Demands Blasphemy Law Pakistan addressed the General Assembly on behalf of the OIC. They demand international imposition of Islamic blasphemy law. It is necessary to highlight their AssWholliness & hypocrisy; that is the mission of this blog post. They are bitching about Innocence of Musalims, Charlie Hebdo's outrageous cartoons and Qur'an burning. Carefully examine the video and answer these questions:
- What does the video say about Muhammad and the cult he founded?
- Is it true or false?
- Where is the hate they are bitching about?
- Where is the incitement they are bitching about?
DEBATE UNDER AGENDA ITEM 9 Madam President,
I have the honour to make this statement on behalf of the OIC,
The OIC Group unequivocally condemns the recent production of a film in the
United States called "The Innocence of Muslims" which tries to defame Islam and the
personality of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him). This film is a blatant
attempt to provoke religious hatred, discrimination and intolerance that has led to unfortunate
loss of life and damage to property. In this context, we also strongly condemn the violence
that resulted in the deaths of a number of people including a US diplomat.
We note that the Secretary General of the United Nations, The High
Commissioner for Human Rights and the President of the United States have also expressed
their opposition to the film. Incidents like this clearly demonstrate the urgent need on the part of States to
introduce adequate protection against acts of hate crimes, hate speech, discrimination,
intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation and negative stereotyping of religions,
and incitement to religious hatred, as well denigration of venerated personalities. Over the past months, there have been a number of examples of acts of
incitement to hatred. These include despicable incidents involving the burning of the Holy
Quran, and the publication of defamatory cartoons. OIC countries have repeatedly called on
the Governments concerned to take action to avert these offensive actions but nothing has
been done on the excuse that such action would be a violation of the freedom of expression.
The OIC underlines that the situation created by the malicious act affirms once more the
urgency for all States to fully uphold their obligations under international law", in particular
articles 19 and 20 olf ICCPR and article 4 of the International
Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination We disagree. These are not exercises in freedom of expression but deliberate attempts
to discriminate, defame, denigrate and vilify Muslims and their beliefs. Such acts
constitute flagrant incitement to violence and are therefore in contravention of ICCPR
Articles 19 and 20. It is therefore abundantly clear that there exists an urgent need to establish
an internationally acceptable threshold between freedom of expression and incitement to
violence and hatred. The OIC has never advocated any prohibitions on freedom of expression. Our
emphasis has been on the need to examine the consequences of unchecked, unbridled and
irresponsible statements and actions made by certain groups and individuals that deliberately
instigate and incite violence on the basis of religion or belief. This can include situations
involving religious minorities or situations in which minorities react violently either in their
home societies or in societies where their co-religionists are in a majority.
None of.this is completely uncharted territory. For instance, we are all aware of
the fact that laws exist in Europe and other countries which impose curbs on anti-Semetic
speech, holocaust denial or racial slurs. We need to acknowledge, once and for all, that
Islamophobia in particular and discrimination on the basis of religion and belief are
contemporary forms of racism and must be dealt with as such. Not to do so would be a clear
example of double standards. Islamophobia has to be treated in law and practice equal to the
treatment given to anti-Semitism, especially in the legislations. - We recall the general comment 11 of the Human Rights Committee and
general comment of the Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination which confirm.
that restricting the freedom of expression on issues relating to racial discrimination applies
. also for incitement to religious hatred. The OIC's resolution on "Combating Intolerance, Negative Stereotyping And
Stigmatization of; and Discrimination, Incitement to Violence, and Violence against Persons
based on Religion or Belief" adopted by consensus at the 16th session of the Human Rights
Council on 24 March 2011, was a concrete attempt: to address this very. concern by bringing
all the key players on board. The consensus resolution was the -result of a long and often,
difficult negotiation process. The OIC welcomes the joint statement by the OIC Secretary general, Arab
League Secretary general, African Union Commissioner for Peace and Security and European
Union High Representative for foreign and Security policy in which they shared the profound
respect for all religion and refuse to, allow religion to be used to fuel provocation,
confrontation and extremism. They reiterated their strong commitment to take further
measures and to work for an international consensus on tolerance and full respect of religion, <<<
including on the basis of UN Human rights Council resolution 16/18. At the heart of the resolution are a series of practical steps to be taken by states
to combat the ever increasing instances of intolerance, negative stereo-typing, stigmatization
and discrimination and violence all over the world. This core issue has been approached in a
manner that is acceptable to all so that all stake-holders are bound by the commitments
contained in the text. The OIC believes that there is an urgent need to take concrete steps
towards the implementation of the plan action contained in the resolution to avoid the
occurrence of such condemnable incidents in the future. If this is not done, there is a very real
chance of a breakdown of the delicate consensus on this issue as reflected in the resolution
which would be unfortunate for all of us. The OIC remains ready to work with its international partners at the Human
Rights Council in Geneva, the UN General Assembly in New York to address and resolve
these critical issues in order to better protect and promote human rights as well as peace and .
security within our respective societies. We also call upon the High Commissioner and her Office to assist this . important effort.
I thank you.
tries to defame
If you were trying to defame someone with a video, would you derive its dialogue from his original hagiographic biography and the most authentic oral traditions from his companions? In Western legal tradition, defamation involves malicious falsehood. Exactly what is false about the video's depiction of Moe?
What does the video have to do with religious hatred, discrimination and intolerance? It illustrated the hatred of Muslims who, when they can do it with impunity, murder Christians and destroy their property. What is provocative about that? Must the news media be prevented from reporting on religiously motivated violence in Africa. Arabia and Asia because it might be provocative? What was Moe's attitude toward infidels? Was it accurately depicted in the video? What is provocative about that?
unfortunate loss of life
How did the video lead to loss of life? How many of the rioters saw the video? The riots were deliberately stirred up by mass media and rabid rants in the mosques. Fortune had nothing to do with murder and destruction, they are intended effects of the damnable doctrines of Islam.What did Christians destroy and whom did they kill over "Piss Christ" and "The Holy Virgin Mary"? What is the difference between Christians and Muslims or their respective doctrines that explains the widely divergent reactions to disturbing images? What did Jesus do? What did Moe do? Whom do Muslims emulate? Do the murders of Kab Ashraf, Asma Bint Marwan and Um Qirfa ring a bell?
appeal to authority
The listed authority figures are full of fecal matter so that it comes out their mouths, which I pointed out in several blog posts. It ain't who you know, it is what you know. I know that the conceptual content of the video is true according to Islam's canon. I know that there is no rational basis for condemning the video. I know that the listed authority figures are scared witless of Islam and seek to appease Muslims. I do not accept them as an argument for censorship.
hate crimes, hate speech...
Hate crimes and hate speech do not flow from defamation or negative stereotyping, they flow from hate. The riots in Egypt and murders in Bengazi are the fruit of wala wal bara: "love and hate for the sake of Allah". Those are hate crimes, for which the criminals constantly seek pretexts. That is low intensity warfare, a doctrine borrowed from the Soviets and their 'non aligned' clients.Moe hated Jews and Christians because they perceived the fraudulent nature of the cult he contrived to ensnare them with perverted and distorted stories from their scriptures and apocryphal books. The first surah of the Qur'an reminds Allah why he should want to burn us. Muslims recite it 17 times each day. The second surah says that we are cursed by Allah, angels and men. The third tells Muslims that they are the best of peoples raised up for mankind as they drag us to Islam in chains. It also tells Muslims that if they attack us, we will do them no harm.
It ain't defamatory unless it is false and malicious. Did the video defame Moe when it reported that he thought he was demon possessed and tried to kill himself? Before answering, perhaps you should refer to the first book in Sahih Bukhari and Ibn Sa'd's hadith collection. Did the video defame Moe when it depicted him as a pedophile? Perhaps you should go to your favorite hadith search engine and look up "six years old" before answering that. Muttawir ahadith testify to Aisha's age at marriage and consummation, with one hadith giving her age as seven.Did the video defame Moe when it depicted him as a lecher? Did he really divert Hafsa from the bedroom on her night in order to tryst with her slave girl? Dig into Volume 9 of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, page 88 if memory serves. And the murder of Kinana & rape of his widow, Safiya? True or false? Look it up in Guillaume's The Life of Muhammad and Tabari', if memory serves, its in Vol. 8. And the talking donkey? Ishaq reveals that it was paid in tribute by an Egyptian ruler, along with the slave girl and her sister. The part about the interview with the donkey is in the Encyclopedia of Canonical Hadith. And the command to wage war, killing the men and enslaving their widows and orphans, is that true? If you read the Qur'an, surahs 8, 9 & 33, you know the answer.
The video does not say anything about Muslims other than Moe and his companions who are long since dead. How does it stereotype Muslims? Moe defined and exemplified Islam. 33:21 tells Muslims if they want to meet Allah in a positive way, they had better emulate Moe. 3:32 tells them to Obey Allah & Moe. What Moe was, pious believers are to the extent that they know his sunnah and are able to emulate it.If Moe channeled Satan instead of God, which he did, then in stead of worshiping God, Muslims worship his adversary. If Moe revealed situational scripture, which he did, then Muslims follow a fraud: a false prophet. When we expose the truth about Allah & Moe, we expose Muslims as demon's slaves and members of a crime syndicate.
incitement to religious hatred
How does the video incite religious hatred? And what is the foul if it did? Should not an impious fraud which has murdered millions and enslaves billions be hated? Exposing evil is not incitement. Doing evil is incitement. The terrorism, riots & murders,. not cartoons, books & videos cause us to hate Islam.
acts of incitement
Uttering & publishing Innocence of Muslims is not an act of incitement, it is an act of education:: showing viewers a fair sample what Moe was and what he did. The Qur'an is an insulting incitement; Allah told Moe to recite it in a low voice to avoid stirring up the pagans.
1:6. Guide us to the Straight Way1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).
3:111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped. 3:112. Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh's disobedience, crimes and sins). 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter. 9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Verse:--"You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind." means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . 9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger (Muhammad when fighting in Allâh's Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). 61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. 61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! 61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.
Publishing videos, cartoons and books along with burning the Qur'an are symbolic actions which do no objective harm. Burning churches, murdering Christians, bombing mass transit and flying hijacked aircraft into office buildings are offensive actions which incite us to utter and publish the truth about Islam.
freedom of expression.
Since Islam declared and is prosecuting war upon us it is necessary that we be able to discuss it with honesty, accuracy and clarity. The War College and West Point need to be free to give full and honest instruction in the doctrines and laws of Islam in the training of our officer corps. Censorship and political correctness must be rolled back and stamped out!Imposition of Islamic blasphemy law would make Thomas Jefferson a criminal for uttering & publishing his report to Congress.
The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven.
Publishing Innocence of Muslims is not a malicious act, it simply makes available, for those who wish to view it, an accurate depiction of a segment of the Life of Moe. Rousing the rabble to attack our Embassy & Consulate and murder our Ambassador and staff were malicious acts.
Enforcement of human rights covenants
is indeed an urgent matter. The International Criminal Court must open a case condemning Islam for incitement to war, racial supremacism and incitement to genocide. Because Islam perpetrated the Hindu, Assyrian & Armenian genocides and seeks to commit genocide against Jews, it must be condemned and proscribed by law.
OIC never advocated
prohibition of free expression; never? You demanded that Holland block release of Fitna and Wilders' book. You demanded that Denmark prosecute the publisher of the Motoons. You promoted the passage of UN resolutions condemning and demanding the criminalization of criticism of Islam and you demand persecution of the creator of Innocence of Muslims. But you never advocated abridgment of the right of free speech: Camelshit!
Cartoons, videos, books and statements do not have consequences. The barbarian behavior of Muslim mobs is a consequence of the rabid ranting of Imams at Jumah Salat, not anything we do. Muslims exploit anything we say or do as a pretext for barbarism but pretext is not causation, it is rationalization. Ladies and gentlemen: Get a God blessed clue for Chrissake!!! I present for your edification a sentence of Shari'ah from Hedaya, the code of the Hanifi school of fiqh.
minorities react violently
Did Copts burn mosques when Piss Christ and The Holy Virgin Mary were put on display as 'art'? When Muslims 'react violently', they exemplify the damnable doctrines of Islam and their own AssWholliness, which alone are the causes of their violence.
on antisemitism & holocaust denial exemplify European stateism, the USA does not emulate them because of our First Amendment. We allow free and open debate, secure in the belief that truth will triumph in a level venue. Those restrictions on European free speech do not serve as a positive model for imposition of Islam's blaspemy law. Islam seeks to prohibit all criticism of Allah, Moe and their damned war cult because they are indefensible; our factual evidence and logic can not be refuted. Islam can not prevail in free debate, so it must silence all critics by force just as Moe commissioned the assassinations of his critics.
What race is Islam? Its founder and first adherents were Arabs but it has conquered and forcibly converted Africans, Asians and Caucasians. The existence of both Black and White Muslims and the ability to become Muslim without changing one's skin pigment or physiognomy serve to devastate the accusation of racism in thinking minds. Hurling that epithet is the last refuge of scurrilous politicians and AssWholes.
Phobia is an irrational fear. After the Accursed Abomination 11 years ago, we are fully aware of the fact that Islam is a worthy object of fear, loathing and execration, death & damnation be upon it! Islam inculcates hatred and incites genocidal violence. Hatred of Islam is well founded and rational, not irrational.

The Ad Hoc Committee on Elaboration of Complementary Standards meets for ten days each spring and fall for the purpose of coding Islam's blasphemy laws into a binding protocol to ICERD. If they succeed and the President signs the damn thing, kiss the First Amendment goodbye forever. The Iranian proposal and the non paper paper are essential to understanding what they propose to do.
tolerance & respect
Tolerance is a two way street. Islam is intolerant. Go back and re-read 3:85 and the context of 3:110. That is intolerance, not tolerance. How in Hell can anyone who declares perpetual war against Jews & Christians lecture us about tolerance? Only by supreme AssWholliness!Respect must be earned; Islam has not earned it and is no more respectable than it is tolerable. I can not tolerate propagation of the idea that my blood and property are not sacred; that I have no human rights and its open season. I can not tolerate that which declares and war against me. I can not respect a G'd'd demon who demands genocide as the price of admission to his Celestial Bordello. I can not respect a pederast who claimed divine sanction for his marriage to his best friend's six year old daughter. I can not respect a false prophet who attributed to his idol what his idol did not say, asserting divine sanction for his sexual proclivities.
promote peace and security
The highlighted clause in this sentence fragment is a thinly veiled threat: threatening violence if we do not submit to censorship. By God, I will never submit!!!
security within our respective societies.
