9/11 anniversary: Muslim protesters burn US fla…, posted with vodpod

From UK’s Telegraph ( HERE )

JihadWatch reports it this way:

Islamic supremacism, triumphalism, and hurling insults against the soldiers who defend the rights they have chosen to mock and abuse. “9/11 anniversary: Muslim protesters burn US flag outside embassy in London,” by Andy Bloxam for the Telegraph, September 11:

A number of radical Islamic groups including Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) gathered outside the embassy on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

The group of around 100 men shouted “USA terrorists“, brandished anti-American placards and chanted through a loudhailer.

Several members of the Muslim groups made anti-American speeches following the flag burning.

One said: “You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.”

Another declared that America had been “defeated in Iraq and defeated in Afghanistan“.

Members of the group publicly burned a poppy on Armistice Day in a similar stunt.

However, a small opposing group of Muslims – some of whom had travelled hundreds of miles to rebut the extremists – staged a counter-demonstration nearby, holding up placards reading “Muslims Against Extremism” and “If You Want Sharia, Move To Saudi”.

Abdul Sallam, 41, who was waving a sign that read “Keep The Silence”, travelled down to London from his home in Glasgow to show the strength of his feelings.

He said: “I’m a Muslim. What they’re doing is bringing shame on all Muslims. This is not part of the teachings of Islam.

“Islam teaches you that when you see anything bad or evil, you should speak out against it.

“If the moderate Muslims all came out and spoke out, that would defeat them.

“I am proud to be British. I love my country. All these people are doing is breaking Britain apart.”

One of the Grosvenor Square memorial service attendees, who did not want to be named, said the protesters should be stopped from standing just across the road from the embassy and using a loud megaphone.

The man, whose cousin died in the terror attacks, said: “They shouldn’t be allowed to do it. It’s very disrespectful. It’s too loud.”

He added: “They can say what they want but not with the loudspeaker.”

U.N. Human Rights Council Moves Away From ‘Dangerous’ Defamation of Religion Concept

Posted in Christian, Civil Rights, Constitution, Fascism, Islam, United Nations with tags , , , , , , on March 25, 2011 by saynsumthn

CNS News 3/25/2011

Revulsion at Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and the murder this year of two leading opponents of those laws may have dealt a final blow to the Islamic world’s controversial “religious defamation” campaign at the United Nations.

In a significant development in Geneva late Thursday, the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) adopted, by consensus, a resolution on combating intolerance based on religion.

Unlike similar measures in previous years, the resolution dropped altogether the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s cherished concept of “defamation” of religions, and it dropped all direct references to Islam.

It also did not, as was the case with previous texts, promote legal restrictions on peaceful free expression – although it did call on countries to adopt “measures to criminalize incitement to imminent violence based on religion or belief.”

It was the first time since 1999 that the U.N.’s top human rights body – either the HRC or its now defunct predecessor, the U.N. Commission on Human Rights – has not adopted an annual OIC-sponsored defamation resolution.

The annual resolution also has been adopted by the full U.N. General Assembly every year since 2005.

In both the HRC and General Assembly, support for the resolution has been eroding in recent years, amid an escalating counter-campaign by religious freedom, free speech and other Christian and secular advocacy groups, some of which describe it as a “global blasphemy law.” While people can be defamed, critics say, religions cannot be.

In the most recent vote, at the General Assembly last December, the OIC resolution passed by a margin of just 12 votes – down from 57 in 2007.

With each year’s dwindling support, the OIC has tried to stem the erosion by softening the language – limiting the number of references to Islam and inserting terms like “Judeophobia” and “Christianophobia” alongside “Islamophobia.” Drafters also removed references to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Earlier versions spoke of discrimination against “Muslim minorities following the events of 11 September 2001.”)

But on Thursday, for the first time, the “defamation” concept was abandoned altogether.

Some critics of the OIC’s campaign linked the development directly to the assassinations earlier this year of the only Christian in Pakistan’s federal cabinet and a Muslim state governor, both opponents of the country’s blasphemy laws.

Megyn Kelly’s Heated Discussion with Islamic CA…, posted with vodpod

NPR has terminated the contract of long-time contributor Juan Williams over remarks he made on the O’Reilly Factor last night. On Monday night’s O’Reilly Factor Williams weighed in on Bill O’Reilly’s now infamous View appearance .

Juan Told Bill (video below) , “Well, actually, I hate to say this to you because I don’t want to get your ego going. But I think you’re right. I think, look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality...”more below

I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.

A Brief History of NPR’s Intolerance and Imbalance
Fox News/ Published October 21, 2010

From calling Tea Party members “Tea Baggers,” to saying that “the evaporation of 4 million” Christians would leave the world a better place, to suggesting that God could give former Sen. Jesse Helms or his family AIDS from a blood transfusion, NPR’s personalities have said some pretty un-PC things in the past. A look at the record reveals no shortage of intolerant statements and unbalanced segments on the publicly sponsored network’s airwaves.

Here’s an incomplete list of questionable and controversial content that has aired on NPR or has been uttered by its employees:

— In June, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) said it was easy to see why some refer to NPR as “National Palestine Radio” following a June 2 segment hosted by Tom Ashbrook on the Gaza flotilla incident. The segment featured five guests — none of whom defended Israel’s actions.

Among the five guests, Janine Zacharia, a Middle East correspondent for The Washington Post, was the only one who did not overtly criticize Israel. She also did not defend its actions, CAMERA officials said.

“So there you have it — five perspectives and not one voice to present the mainstream Israeli perspective,” they said in a June 17 press release. “That’s Ashbrook’s and NPR’s version of a balanced discussion on Israel.”

— Last week, Newsbusters, a conservative media watchdog group, claimed that NPR’s “Fresh Air” spent most of its hour insinuating that the Republican Party was dangerously infested with extremists.

NPR’s Terry Gross hosted Princeton professor Sean Wilentz, who has written that President George W. Bush practiced “a radicalized version of Reaganism,” Newsbusters’ Tom Graham wrote.

“Can you think of another time in American history when there have been as many people running for Congress who seem to be on the extreme?” Gross asked, according to Graham.
“Not running for Congress, no,” Wilentz replied. “I mean even back in the ’50s.”

NPR issued an apology in 2005 for a commentator’s remark on the return of Christ following a complaint by the Christian Coalition that the comment was anti-Christian.
On “All Things Considered,” the network’s afternoon drive-time program, humorist Andrei Codrescu said that the “evaporation of 4 million [people] who believe” in the doctrine of Rapture “would leave the world a better place.”

Codrescu, who was on contract with NPR but not a full-time employee, later told The Associated Press he was sorry for the language, but “not for what [he] said.”
NPR apologized for the comment, saying, it “crossed a line of taste and tolerance” and was an inappropriate attempt at humor.

— Also in 2005, NPR apologized to Mark Levin, author of “Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America,” after a broadcast of its program “Day to Day” falsely accused him of advocating violence against judges. Levin accepted the apology, but said the broadcast was “illustrative of a smear campaign launched by the Left to try and silence” his criticisms of judicial activism.

— In 2002, the head of NPR issued an apology six months after a report linking anthrax-laced letters to a Christian conservative organization.

— Also in 2002, during an interview with the Philadelphia City Paper, NPR host Tavis Smiley said he strived to do a show that is “authentically black,” but not “too black.”

In 1995, Nina Totenberg, NPR’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent, was allowed to keep her job after telling the host of PBS’ “Inside Washington” that if there was “retributive justice” in the world, former North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms would “get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.”
