Think about it. Isn’t it a bit ironic, at best, that the Islamic states will bewail the inequities they perceive just a few days after the 10th anniversary of 9/11, a few miles from the site where the World Trade Center once stood?
Pakistan is usually the leader of these complaint campaigns — Pakistan, where dozens of young women are killed each year, often buried alive, for saying they want to choose their own husbands; where 36 people died a couple of weeks ago when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a mosque during midday prayers.
Of course, Pakistan is hardly the only nation feeding Islamophobia. Not so long ago, the United Arab Emirates Supreme Court ruled that a man is free to beat up his wife and children — as long as he does not leave marks. Saudi Arabia asked a hospital to surgically mutilate a young man’s spinal cord as penalty for injuring another man in a fight. During the famine in Somalia this summer, Islamic militants forbade aid workers to bring food for thousands of Somalis who were literally starving to death.
Is it any wonder that many people look askance at Islam — and paint their disdain with a broad brush?...Looking askance? Don't you know that that, too, is "Islamophobic," impudent kafir? There will be none of that "askancing" if the Durban III "human rights" Cosa Nostra has anything to say about it (and there will be no invitation to the Islam Rocks! conference for you)!
How else are the thugs proposing to get everyone on board the anti-"Islamophobia" bandwagon? Why, by claiming that whatever Israel does is "racist," while whatever Arab and other Muslim nations do is, if not exactly "human rightsy" (rather hard to make that assertion these days), then nowhere near as "wicked" as Zionism:
The declaration is a reincarnation of the “Zionism is racism” libel, and it is about to be catapulted to new heights if [head UN "human rights" thug Navi] Pillay, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and willing collaborators in the developing world’s G-77 get their way.
Negotiators are planning to finalize the declaration, intended to be rubber-stamped by world leaders later this month, as early as today. This will leave each government with a stark choice: join Islamic states and their partners in perpetrating this “anti-racist” swindle or join the boycott. Durban enthusiasts are hoping to make that choice as difficult as possible by masking the agenda with a human rights veneer.
For instance, the new declaration is called “United against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.” Except that, given how racism has been defined, the General Assembly is not united on the subject. It expresses much heartfelt concern for the “victims of racism” – except those words are the product of intense lobbying by Islamic states because the Durban Declaration says Palestinians are “victims” of Israeli racism. There is a harmless looking reference to “intolerance including its new forms and manifestations.” It was inserted because of the OIC/G-77 demanded the declaration cover Islamophobia and defamation of religion. As Egypt’s representative to the Human Rights Council back in March, “the denigration of religions is wrongly justified on the ground of the right to freedom of expression.”Yeah, those Egyptians just loooove that "freedom of expression."
