“… any laxity in this connection would mean the loss of a political and legal mainstay in the defense of our faith, our values and our sanctities.”
CNS News: As its annual “defamation of religion” resolution loses ground at the United Nations after a decade of successes, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is urging its members to close ranks on an issue, which it calls vital for the defense of Islam. […] He voiced dismay about the declining support for the resolutions, and the fact that some countries, which he did not identify, were “thinking of reconsidering the subject.”
Well, well, well, the head honcho bigot of the OIC is now nervous that his ten year agenda “to seek out new subservient dhimmis and craft new UN Muslim friendly legislation, to boldly advance Islam like no other caliphate before” is now running aground. HAHAHAHAHA!
Sheik Yer’Mami reminds us that :CNSNews.com – OIC Fulfills Function of Caliphate….
Also worth remembering is that the 56 Islamic countries (and the PA) in fact do not recognize the universal declaration of human rights but only when it does not conflict with the Sharia. Take a closer look at the anti-female document. KGS
Whereas the Universal declaration states
‘Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.’
CDHRI does not guarantee equal rights, but merely equal dignity: Article 6 (a) Woman is equal to man in human dignity, and has rights to enjoy as well as duties to perform; she has her own civil entity and financial independence, and the right to retain her name and lineage. (b) The husband is responsible for the support and welfare of the family.
[…]‘All men are equal in terms of basic human dignity and basic obligations and responsibilities, without any discrimination on the basis of race, colour, language, belief, sex, religion, political affiliation, social status or other considerations.’
Adama Dieng, a member of the International Commission of Jurists, criticised the CDHRI. He argued that the declaration gravely threatens the inter-cultural consensus on which the international human rights instruments are based; that it introduces intolerable discrimination against non-Muslims and women. He further argued that the CDHRI reveals a deliberately restrictive character in regard to certain fundamental rights and freedoms, to the point that certain essential provisions are below the legal standards in effect in a number of Muslim countries; it uses the cover of the “Islamic Shari’a (Law)” to justify the legitimacy of practices, such as corporal punishment, which attack the integrity and dignity of the human being
