As the U.N. General Assembly convenes this week in New York, several leaders of mostly Muslim nations are suggesting that the world body consider sanctions on blasphemy, amid widespread protests against an amateur movie that denigrates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he will focus at least part of his remarks on the film when he addresses the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.

“I am the prime minister of a nation, of which most are Muslims, that has declared anti-Semitism a crime against humanity. But the West hasn’t recognized Islamophobia as a crime against humanity. It has encouraged it,” Mr. Erdogan told reporters last week.

Turkey heads the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a body of 57 nations, which has long pushed for a U.N. resolution condemning the “defamation of religion.”

Nonbinding versions of the resolution have been adopted, but the effort was crushed last year by religious groups and human rights activists who argued that it represented a dangerous step toward an international law against free speech.

The debate has been reignited by “Innocence of Muslims,” a crudely produced film made in the United States that has sparked fury in the Muslim world. Protesters have breached the walls at U.S. embassies and desecrated American flags in sometimes violent demonstrations. A protest in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi ended with the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton appealed Monday to Muslims to show “dignity” and not resort to violence as they protest the film, the Associated Press reported.

“Dignity does not come from avenging insults, especially with violence that can never be justified,” Mrs. Clinton said at her husband’s Clinton Global Initiative. “It comes from taking responsibility and advancing our common humanity.”

In New York on Monday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad alluded to the film and accused the United States and others of misusing freedom of speech and of failing to speak out against the defamation of people’s beliefs and “divine prophets.”

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, whose country boasts the world’s largest Muslim population, has condemned the film and called on “the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the U.N. to mull over international protocol to prevent such things like this from happening again.”

Pakistan’s parliament passed a resolution condemning “Innocence of Muslims” and demanding the nation’s leaders to call on the United Nations to take action against those who made the film.

At least one politician has gone a step further in Egypt, where the anti-American protests were triggered after a Salafist Muslim TV network broadcast Arabic-dubbed clips of the film.

“We call for legislation or a resolution to criminalize contempt of Islam as a religion and its prophet,” Emad Abdel Ghaffour, who heads the ultra-orthodox sect’s Nour political party, told Reuters over the weekend.

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will address the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, and many are waiting to see whether he will echo Mr. Ghaffour’s remarks.

Well, if that's how they feel, the Jewish-led-nations will seek a ban on antisemitic insults! Oh, wait... :frown-new:

While Christian and Jewish law forbids blasphmy, those laws only apply to Christians and Jews. Jewish law does not compel obedience from non-Jews, but Sharia demands universal sovereignty, so that anyone who violates it, anywhere, is subject to punishment. This is what people don't understand about Sharia and Islam, and why we have to stop the spread of Sharia. Those Muslims who come to America to become Americans are welcome. Those who come here to subvert America and force our submission to Islam are not.

I don't really have the desire to insult Muhammed, but it's always good to reserve the right to do so.

I think we should seek a global ban on Islam. They have already demonstrated that the can't play well with others and really... how much different are they than the Nazis?

Damn. So I can't call Muhammad a warmongering pedophiliac coward? I love doing that! Even more so 'cause it's true! History's fun when you know it!

Tsk tsk... Just because you said that, there will be a massive riot at one of our embassies in the Middle East, coincidentally on September 11 of next year, and the administration will be forced to jail you rather than admit that the spontaneous protest, which had an OPORD and several months of planning, emplacement of crew-served weapons and detailed maps of the embassy, was planned by terrorists. :friendly_wink:

Mohammad, piss be upon him, the worlds first terrorist ..



Isn't it amazing how a man can claim to be visited by Gabriel while sitting in a cave all by himself? He must have been smoking crack. Heck, Jesus had witnesses to prove what he did. All Mohammad, piss by upon him, had was his drug induced story.

Does that mean we can no longer refer to them as flea infested camel fuckers who are largely living proof that anal sex with goats has consequences that can result in live male birth?

Just curious.

It depends. If the Qur'an or hadiths say that Mohamed had fleas and had sex with camels and goats, then they are just following his perfect example, and it is okay to complement them on their animal husbandry skills an flea breeding prowess.:D
