The latest from Baron Bodissey: Defaming Islam is proposed as a new crime by the huddled masses at the UN.
The UN pumps out propaganda to suggest that it is out to protect Universal Human Rights. But when it comes to doing anything to enforce those rights, the oppressed masses of the world generally wait in vain, under the thumb of tyrannical governments that sit in council at the UN. The Gays of Iran, for example. A short answer for why this is so is that the UN, being ruled by the ideology of White Guilt, actually works to erode the power of sovereign and free nation states which might actually do something to advance their self-interest, not to forget the larger human interest, by insuring other nations become more free and democratically transparent so as to be more trustworthy as a negotiating parties, than is your average tyranny.
In the UN, the US and Israel are the perennial bad guys. A UN in which a quarter of the members are Islamic states, and many more are sympathizers with the Islamic claims to act as the head of the anti-American, anti-Jew forces, in opposition to the Yankee-Zionist conspiracy that supposedly controls the global economy and politics, is quick to pass motions trying to outlaw the "defamation of Islam". But the tyrannies that get together to pass such motions are places where Muslims and others are daily oppressed. Thus we get a lot of talk about human rights, while the only large political forces that might plausibly defend them in a sustained way - the free, Western-oriented, nations - are the perennial target of scapegoating from the world's disenfranchised, and the source of much guilt from their own citizens.
The UN needs to be replaced by a council of free nations as the leading forum for international affairs. When freedom is insured for all, few will pay Islam much attention in order to defame it. But until that happens, free bloggers and others will feel an obligation to keep putting up stories to suggest that Islam, and the tribal culture of which it is presently an integral part, can kill, and can threaten the freedom of those who want to talk about why.
