-Secretary Clinton Supports UN Islamic ‘Defamation’ Resolution?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apparently is supporting the UN resolution 16/18 introduced by OIC and plans to hold meetings on how it can be implemented:

JEDDAH, Ramadan 1/Aug 1 (IINA)-During the next few months, Washington plans to host a coordination meeting to discuss with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) how to implement resolution no. 16/18 on combating defamation of religions, and how to prevent stereotypes depicting religions and their followers; as well as disseminating religious tolerance, which has been endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council last March, in agreement with Western countries. The resolution was adopted after lengthy discussions held between the OIC and countries in which the phenomenon of Islamophobia is in the rise.

The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had announced the intention of the U.S. State Department to organize a coordination meeting during her participation in the meeting which she co-chaired with the OIC Secretary General, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Istanbul on 15 July 2011. The meeting issued a joint statement emphasizing the dire need for the implementation of resolution 16/18.

Response: Incredible! This resolution actually restricts religious conversation and regulates what one might say about Islam, the Quran, and it’s founder Muhammad. How can a representative of our government like Sec. Clinton encourage or support this in any way?

The resolution is called ‘defamation of religions’ but Islam is the only religion specifically sanctioned for special protection by the resolution. Islamic nations put forth this resolution to protect Islam from Western ‘Islamophobia’ including offensive Muhammad cartoons and Quran burnings.

How this could ever be implemented in the USA is beyond me. It will actually restrict free speech and freedom of religion rather than protect it.

Meanwhile, it is still open season on Christianity, Christians, Churches, and the Bible in the very same countries supporting this resolution.            *Top

    Is it any surprise that a member of the Obama Marxis regime would take sides against the GOd of Abraham, against America, and against the freedom of speech? These people are persueing evil with a demonic zeal, but what they fail to undrestand, is that they are the very fulfillment of bible prophecy. By implempting these evil policies against against Israel and against the Christians, and their GOd, they are in fact, sowing the seeds of their own destruction.

    Thanks Denise,
    However, they don’t even know what they are doing is wrong. They are deluded in thinking that they are the ‘good guys’ and conservative Christians and Israelis are in the wrong. We are living in times where the ‘good’ is now being called ‘bad’ and the bad is considered progressive and therefore good.
