Defame Islam, get sued

Yahoo! News reported The Muslim world has created a battle plan to defend its religion from political cartoonists and bigots.
They are running out of people willing to blow themselves up, so they are resorting to something we have a surplus of -- lawyers.
... Though the legal measures being considered have not been spelled out, the idea pits many Muslims against principles of freedom of speech enshrined in the constitutions of numerous Western governments.

"I don't think freedom of expression should mean freedom from blasphemy,"
freedom from blasphemy, freedom of blasphemy, and freedom to blaspheme.
said Senegal's President Abdoulaye Wade, the chairman of the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference. "There can be no freedom without limits.".
And there can be no limits without freedom.
... "Muslims are being targeted by a campaign of defamation, denigration, stereotyping, intolerance and discrimination," charged Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the group.
Could that have something to do with the 10729 terrorist acts since /11?
The report urges the creation of a "legal instrument" to crack down on defamation of Islam. Some delegates point to laws in Europe criminalizing the denial of the Holocaust
Which the President of Iran does all the time.
and other anti-Semitic rhetoric. They also point to articles within various U.N. charters that condemn discrimination based on religion and argue that these should be ramped up. "In our relation with the western world, we are going through a difficult time," Ihsanoglu told the summit's general assembly. "Islamophobia cannot be dealt with only through cultural activities
It means you have to educate Muslims to behave in a civilized fashion.
but (through) a robust political engagement."....

Jonathan Turley blogged Most view the role of the law as protecting free speech but these leaders appear to view right as only valid if it is not used to insult their religious views.

Hube blogged There's been no word on whether this same conference discussed similar measures for the hatred and defamation of Jews and their religion. You know, that which is taught from the earliest years in Muslim countries.

JammieWearingFool blogged Have you ever seen a bigger bunch of babies than these buffoons? OK, maybe you have, since we're stuck with so many liberals here in the U.S. But seriously, if these poor offended souls don't want to be ridiculed, how about cleaning up your act, stop murdering your women on a regular basis, stop murdering innocent people in the name of your religion, and most of all, just dummy up for five minutes and stop whining.
