The United Nations Allows Repression of Legitimate Argument

As I've said earlier, several Islamic countries have banned together to try to get "defamation of religion" banned throughout the world, obviously aimed at preventing criticism of Islam. As one of the speakers tries to make the point that the countries who are presenting the proposal are some of the worst defamers of religion (defaming Christianity and Judaism), and that their proposal is clearly biased in favor of Islam, that the proposal should be rejected.

The representative from Egypt interrupts and says, basically, it's part of Islamic doctrine to defame other religions, and since this discussion is not about theology, then whether or not Islamic countries defame other religions is not a legitimate subject for conversation at this meeting.

The objection is upheld. Check it out:

I urge all of us to use this link whenever we mention concessions to Islam:

Setting Precedents

As Robert Spencer put it: "'s a small accommodation in itself, but it reinforces the precedent that American practices must give way to Muslim ones whenever they clash. Once that precedent is set, it does indeed lead to the Islamization of American society, unless at a certain point non-Muslims are willing to draw the line and say 'Thus far, but no farther. No more accommodation of Muslim demands.' That line will never be drawn, however, as long as Americans continue to fail to see the larger implications and inevitable outcome of these individual incidents."
