Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Calls for Defamation Laws

Hat tip Jihad Watch

Saudi Arabia is a nation where it is illegal to practice any religion other than Islam. Those Muslims who choose to leave the religion are subject to the death penalty under Saudi law. Yet, in an incredible display of hypocrisy, the deputy foreign minister has called on other governments to pass legislation against those who criticize Islam.  The below article in the Arab News (Saudi Arabia) was posted this morning by Jihad Watch.


And there was this from one of the readers:

"Nobody should be allowed to insult Islam. The one who does should be beheaded in public irrespective of his nationality or religion. Saudi Arabia is center of Islam and such attitude will not be tolerated from anybody weather local or foreigner."


Reading this article, I felt like I was reading one of those old Nazi newspapers from the Third Reich, the Voelkischer Beobachter or Der Stuermer. This is really scary stuff, folks because not only does this thinking prevail in Muslim countries, it is being pushed onto the rest of the world. The 56-member Organization  of Islamic Cooperation, which comprises the Islamic-majority nations of the world plus the Palestinian government is the largest voting bloc in the UN. They have been trying for years to push just such legislation through the UN and its (UN)  member states. Secretary of State Clinton met two or three times with this group in Washington and Istanbul (behind closed doors). If the West continues to prostrate itself to these countries, who knows what kind of legislation we may see someday under this current administration? Europe is on bended knee as we speak. Look how the administration in Washington is going after its enemies now. We should delude ourselves into thinking that the First Amendment is rock solid and cannot be abridged.

We are up against a Nazi-like ideology,and sooner or later, we need to stand up and say that we shall never submit to it. In case you didn't know, the very word Islam means "submission".

84. In addition, criminal defamation laws may not be used to protect abstract or
subjective notions or concepts, such as the State, national symbols, national identity, cultures, schools of thought, religions, ideologies or political
doctrines. This is consistent
with the view, sustained by the Special Rapporteur, that international human rights law
protects individuals and groups of people, not abstract notions or
institutions that are subject to scrutiny, comment or criticism.
