http://www.facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Crucial Step Towards Sharia Law? United Nations Anti-Blasphemy Resolution - Christopher Hitchens @ CNN with Lou Dobbs.

Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason:

The United Nations has adopted a "resolution combating defamation of religions" and wants to regulate free speech. Featured guest is Christopher Hitchens.

The U.N. now wants to make that Anti-Blasphemy Resolution binding on all member nations. That would make it a crime to critisize religion, in particular Islam. This is a major effort taking place to curb free speech worldwide.

Christopher Hitchens discussed the United Nations Anti-Blasphemy Resolution with Lou Dobbs on February 25, 2009 on CNN. The Resolution, sponsored by the Arab members, might be the crucial next step towards imposing Sharia law in the Western world.

Do you believe the United Nations' restriction of freedom of speech in the United States and other western countries should be tolerated?

Good for the US for standing up to this. First pat on the back I give them in a while. The UN needs to kick out the muslim nations because they obviously ruined the UN... I may hate everything christian fundies stand for, but id be damn glad to have them on my side if Islam ever gains more power than it already has.

I love this clip. You can see the anger in Lou Dobbs eyes and hear the outrage in in voice. He's barely containing it. You can tell how upset he is when he suggests the UN building be bulldozed. I second that emotion.

Recognize that Islam is not a religion as the word is traditionally used. It is primarily a violent totalitarian ideology of supremacy, no different than any other sort of fascist ideology. Would it not have been convenient for the NAZI's to pretend that they were a religion and take over by infiltration, from within? In chapter 9 of the Quran, Mohammed gives his followers their final marching orders. By the way, chapter 9 abrogates ANY previous teachings that might contradict it, due to the clearly stated chapter 2 verse 106 on abrogation. Islam is more like a political party that comes with an inseparable legal system wrapped in a veneer of a supremacist religion. It"s the freedom of religion that lets this evil spread. The function of a mosque as solely a place of prayer is not true. It is also a place to disseminate this supremacist ideology, as it historically has been. They are sometimes built at sites of conquest, hence their strong request to build one at ground zero of 9/11 attack, just like a dog peeing to mark it"s territory. The mosques are often huge and financed by Saudi Arabia to send the message that they don"t come to integrate, they come to DOMINATE. If Islam was re-classified as a cult (which it is), it would put a stop to this insanity. Examine the ideology, don't be fooled by the taqiyya (deception allowed by the Quran) that they employ frequently, treat them like everyone else. This means calling them out on every human rights abuse, no free religious pass. By the way, the yellow star for Jews did not originate with the Germans, it came from the Muslims back in the 8th century, along with blue belts that Christians had to wear. Same purpose as in WWII.

This interview shows better than anything else how the Left (Hitchens) and Right (Dobbs) are NOT the diametric opposites of the political spectrum. The two diametric poles of the political spectrum are FREEDOM and COERCION. Although of the far right and far left, Dobbs and Hitchens are 100 percent in sync Because they believe in truth, enlightenment and freedom instead of coercion and darkness. VERY ENLIGHTENING!
As has been said, "Blasphemy is a victimless crime."
All sovereign nations need to leave the UN. Let that house of cards crumble!

I exercise my right to freedom of speech to say "Fuck Allah and his prophet Mohammed". Now, who's going to come and get me? (Evil grin)
